My full review is available here http://lipglossfiend.wordpress.com/2011/08/28/sunscreen-review-korres-sp...This is an avobenzone-free sunscreen which means yes, it’s compatible with your SPF makeup. Contains titanium dioxide too, in addition to EHM as the UV ray blockers, at least what I recognise. Nourishing stuff good for your skin include Jojoba seed oil, Alpha Tocopherol (vitamin E), Ascorbyl Palmitate (which is a form of Vitamin C), botanical extracts, honey and yes, yoghurt as the last ingredient. Note that perfume is one of the ingredients listed and the perfume is… eau de Yoghurt. To bring home the point of yoghurt in the sunscreen. It’s an off-white shade and very, very emollient, creamy in feel. It does feel just like yoghurt, not too viscous in consistency.There is a very obvious initial white cast to it. Some effort and time is also required to massage this well into your skin. I’d advise skipping any serums or hydrators (except for toners or spritz) before using this sunscreen as it is sufficiently hydrating on its own, with antioxidants like honey in it. There is no alcohol in this sunscreen, which also explains why it needs more time and more massaging for it to be absorbed.
My full review is here http://lipglossfiend.wordpress.com/2011/12/13/surprise-lip-tint-fave-of-...My personal preference for lip tints is to have good colour payoff that shows on my lips, but keeping it sheer. OA's Gilded Ruby fits my idea of a great lip tint to a T. While Gilded Ruby is a slightly cool ruby pink, it’s not too cool for my warm skintone and neither is the shimmer that obvious.
Texture wise it’s not hard but neither is it on the mushy side. Nevertheless, this shouldn’t be left in warm places or pockets. If you have no allergies to shea butter, this formula is really TDF. It goes on very smooth and with a lovely glossy sheen and leaves my lips feeling very moisturised. I especially love the tingle the peppermint oil gives that does last for a quarter of an hour for me.

The Korres Thyme Honey Mask smells just like thyme honey and good enough to eat. The texture is white and filmy, maybe the slightest bit tacky but not overly so. It’s easy to spread without dripping down your face and while I’ve not applied this right up to my lashline, it doesn’t irritate my eye area . I’ve used this about 4 – 5 times over the past couple of weeks. Usually right after using a clay mask, to replenish the moisture in my skin, as most of the clay mask mixtures I have do a darn good job of extracting the gunk from my skin, which inadvertently strips some moisture from it too. The mask sinks in rather quickly on my skin and dries in about 10 – 15 minutes, without hardening much. I use sponge pads to rinse the mask off with plenty of water and finish off with a spritz of Avene’s Thermal Spray.
The end result is slightly glowing skin that has its moisture replenished without leaving an oily feel to it. My skin also loses its slightly “tight” feel that it gets post-clay mask. As with all masks, the effects are not longlasting so regular skincare is required alongside regular mask usage. I find this mask suitable for normal to slightly dry skin. If you have very dry skin, you might possibly need to follow up with a moisturiser after using the mask.
I do enjoy using the Korres Thyme Honey Mask and would recommend it for those that need some moisture replenishment and care about the ingredients that go into skincare. However, I’d only pick up a full size if I find a really good deal as it’s about USD$29 on Sephora and very probably way higher in Singapore too.
