Korres & Apivita : A Greek Pharmacy

I came back from Greece yesterday, and I still can't believe just how amazing it was!

My skin reacts really badly to drastic changes in temperature, and so I broke out a bit, as well as getting bitten. Not a pretty face at the end of the week. I really need to invest in some SP4 mineral foundation...maybe Jane Iredale...?!

Anyways, I spent about 1 hour choosing products in a pharmacy in Parikia, Paros. I wanted to get something from Korres, as I haven't tried their stuff yet, though I have heard about it a lot in the past year or so.

Apivita was the other range that caught my eye, which being a natural therapy brand I totally clicked with. Plus they were the only two Greek brands available in the Pharmacy, most everything else was French.

Check out my vlog about my time in the Greek Islands, and a bit of a demo of the products.

So, I chose products that I actually needed, and had totally forgot to bring with me, as well as some treats:
- Korres Fig Body Lotion
- Apivita Propoline Lip Aid with Cocoa Butter and Olive Oil SPF15
- Korres 3in1 Milk Proteins Cleanser, Toner, Make-Up Remover
- Apivita Aqua Plus Cucumber Face Mask
- Apivita Everyday Face Scrub with Apricot
- Apivita Propoline Hair Mask

I will review these soon, and let you know what I think about all of them. The nice thing is that they are all fairly natural products, so smell delicious!
