Korres Wild Rose Review - Korres Daily Brightening and Refining Buff Cleanser

Korres Wild Rose Cleanser - Review
Korres Daily Brightening and Refining Buff Cleanser 
With spring officially upon us (finally!), I'm focusing on exfoliating, cleansing pores, and overall keeping skin glowing and bright.  I've used the Korres Yogurt product previously and was looking forward to dabbling into the Korres Wild Rose line.  On my most recent Sephora trip, I decided to pick the Korres Daily Brightening Cleanser which claims to uncover luminous skin using a dual action cream containing cherry stones and sugar-citrus extracts.

Miranda's Notes:

Pros: After using the Korres Wild Rose Cleanser, my face did immediately feel fresher and brighter - although the exfoliating particles are a bit rougher, the cream works at removing impurities and dry skin while also moisturizing.  Korres claims that the Daily Brightening Cleanser can be used daily but even with my dry skin I found it to be too harsh - I tend to use this once or twice a week when I'm looking to refresh and improve my complexion.  The tube contains a lot of product so the $24.00 USD price tag is all right considering that the use will be spread throughout the week. The cleanser contains no parabens, sulfates, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals, GMOs, Triclosan, or phthalates.  Overall, unlike several other exfoliators I've tried, Korres Wild Rose does not leave my skin dry and improves the luminosity of my complexion (if you have absolute dry skin or if you're looking for a skin "re-set" after this winter weather, the Korres Wild Rose Daily Cleanser would be perfect).

Cons: I've included the ingredients below because I've got issue with one of them - and that's the rose fragrance.  This Korres product did not need a fragrance because it's a cleanser that is washed off within minutes (can you sense my frustration).  There is no need to have a fragrance in such a product and definitely not a ton of it - when I was using this, the product got on my lips and it tasted as if I inhaled perfume, it is that strong.  I enjoy the Korres line because it is natural, so I found the fragrance out of place and unnecessary.  If you have sensitive skin that doesn't agree with fragrance, this product may not be for you - which is a shame considering the lack of bad chemicals and the effectiveness of the product.  

Grade: 4/5
The Korres cleanser contains 5.0 fl. oz.- there are additional products in the Wild Rose line (Sephora recommends the Wild Rose mask which has rose petals)

Readers' Recommendations: I would love to try other exfoliating cleansers that do not dry the skin, so let me know what works for you.


  1. Great review, I am a not a fan of facial products with strong fragrances, so I do not think that I will be trying this one.

  2. I hate fragrance myself. It's too bad this one had to be so strong! I don't understand why companies put them in, in the first place.

  3. that sucks about the fragrance. I can do a little but when its overwhelming its just not my kind of product! Great review!

  4. I absolutely love this, it's dreamy for my dry and eczema-prone skin! I personally enjoy fragranced products but I can understand your frustration if you just hate it x

  5. I've always been intrigued by Korres because of the natural look of their products, but I agree that fragrance probably wasn't necessary in a cleanser!

  6. Another great non-drying exfoliant is REN's jojoba scrub!

  7. Dermalogica daily microfoliant is a great exfoliant for dry and sensitive skin
