i managed to find my local korres all by myself today. this is quite an achievement because i usually just stumble across it when i'm supposed to be in another shop, but this time i actually found it! (if you shop at cardiff and want to know where it is, you go through the big boots in queen street, into the arcade, then it's to the left of the fragrance/perfume shop..i can't remember which haha, but its really close to boots!). literally every time i've been in there, there hasn't been anyone else in the shop. this is a definite plus because the sales assistants give me their full attention and there's no hustle and bustle. also..the buy one get one free on everything in store is still going! amazing! today, one of the things i picked up was a lip butter.
i find the little pots so cute and handy :) doesn't the actual lip butter look quite vampy? that picture was before i stuck my fingers in and messed it all up, it doesn't look so perfect now :(. i suppose i'm slightly bias since i'm in love with korres, but really, this is the best lip butter/balm i've ever tried! you know the little pictures of pots on cosmetics that tell you how long they last? e.g. 3 months, 6 months etc? this one has 24 months! i suppose it'd be a little bit unhygienic to have it that long, but who cares?
korres say: "A buttery lip balm that melts on the lips and offers a shiny, tinted finish. The combination of Shea butter and Rice wax offers deep hydration and softness. Ideal for chapped lips." and i completely agree! it costs £6 so hardly breaks the bank and i can imagine the pot lasting ages. can definitely see this becoming a holy grain product.
please ignore any hideous spots you might see in the pictures above, my skin and i aren't getting on lately. skin issues aside, isn't the lip butter great?! it's just tinted enough to make a difference :) try as i might, i can't work out what shade i have or remember what other shades there are, sorry!
