Review: Korres Wild Rose Face and Eye Serum

Before Korres jazzed up their packaging and reworded product names, Wild Rose Face & Eye Serum previously went by as "Wild Rose Brightening Serum". The ingredients and quantity has stayed the same but only a few items went through a price change.

The Korres Wild Rose Face and Eye Serum I have came in a skincare gift set so it's not in the prettier, popping-red bottle but I'm certain the old and new bottles are of the same model.
It took awhile to commit to using this serum but it had to be done.

Four Things I Like About the Wild Rose Face & Eye Serum
1) Available online and in stores at my local Sephora - this is easy to purchase and/or get a sample of!

2) The $US/$49CAD (before taxes) spent on a meager 30ml/1.01 oz of serum is considered generous. 

3) The pump bottle is easy to use and hygienic. It's also efficient what with the expiration date on the bottom (month and year). None of that "12 month after opening" crud.
The pump disperses the same amount each time. One pump is enough for around the eyes/cheekbones, on smile lines and forehead.

4) The serum is non-greasy despite the semi-rich and runny formula.

Two Things I Dislike About the Wild Rose Face & Eye Serum
1) It's crucial that I apply the serum religiously or I lose the brightening and line smoothing effects just like that.
2) The serum is heavily scented of roses (duh) and I'm not a fan of it. It's a touch sweeter than the rest of Korres' Wild Rose line but I know those sensitive to scents (especially floral's) will despise this.

Bottom Line:
The Korres Wild Rose Face & Eye Serum will satisfy preventative needs but those with severe cases of dullness and fine lines may not find this useful. Try a sample (or two) before committing to this animal-friendly serum. The ingredients may satisfy the tiny green been within you.
