KORRES Golden Krocus Ageless Saffron Elixir Serum
Sephora used to have this as part of their beauty bazaar. I’d always wanted to try it but couldn’t afford that price point, so I got the sample immediately. I have some deep creases in my forehead as well as fine lines near my mouth, not to mention super textured skin caused by acne scars, and using this every day made a visual difference in how smooth my skin looked with and without makeup. It also didn’t make me break out and I have pretty sensitive skin. I was able to make that sample stretch for about a month because it takes the tiniest drop to cover your face. In fact, I loved it so much that I spent the remaining 400 points I had to buy 4 more! I’m definitely getting the full size bottle when I can afford it.
I heard whisper of the Golden Krocus elixir and the wonderful things that it was capable of doing and knew I had to give it a try. So I got my first bottle and I was obsessed. The smell, the feel, the results, the beautiful packaging. And then I bought my second bottle and the consistency of my skin totally started to change and it was incredible! I highly recommend any one who is on the hunt for a “do it all” product to seek this one out.
This is by far my favorite serum I have ever used. This is going to sound dramatic, but it’s true, no other products or combination of products have ever made my skin glow and transform the way this did. Unfortunately, I received a sample of it and finished it all and did not repurchase only because the full size comes with a rather hefty price tag. That’s this products only downfall.
THERE.ARE.NO.WORDS!!! I got a tiny sample of this in my sephora play box and it's amazing. I use it after my toner and before my moisturizer and it's just great. Its thin, spreadable, with no odd consistancy or feel on the skin after but smooth. It has a smell that I cant explain but it smells good to me. This in a large size is $90-190 and I def cant afford that as a single mana but I know its something I want to splurge on if the time comes.
I didn’t like the consistency of this serum as it was really sticky and tacky once on the skin. I didn’t think it went well under my other products and make up. I read some people didn’t like the smell but I didn’t notice any obnoxious smell. wasn’t a fan of the texture and didn’t see any differences using the product.
I was torn when buying this because as an ingredients snob I was a bit meh on the ingredients for the price (and a serum with mica in it would typically put it automatically in my hard no category) but the packaging and story/marketing behind this suckered me in. That said I have gladly purchased and re-purchased this serum in the year and a half since it's launch. I use this semi regularly to regularly - if my skin is breaking out I use it religiously as something in it agrees with my skin so much that I find any breakouts heal infinitely quicker and help any random cystic acne not come to a full head/start healing before it gets bad. An HG product for sure!
This is an amazing serum great for using on its own or before your moisturizers. I also like to use this as a primer. I was able to find at Sephora and they also have little bundle deals where you can get other products along with a small serum which is what prompted me to buy the larger one once I had sampled it.
I LOVE this serum!! I use it after toning and before moisturizing, and it instantly plumps any fine lines, leaves my skin feeling incredibly supple, and I have a sort of glow all day after using this. I have very oily skin, and my skin never feels greasy after using this product, just incredibly smooth and soft. I’ve also noticed my pores seem less congested when i use this. The packaging is great- I never feel like the dropper wastes any product and I’m able to distribute it on my skin really evenly. This serum does everything it says it will do, and I can not recommend it highly enough.
This elixer is really nice. I always feel fancy using it because I learned the krocus flower it comes from only blooms once a year so it’s pretty rare. Anyway, it smells nice and is very light weight which is nice for anyone that doesn’t like any heavy products. My favorite way to apply this would be to massage it into my hands and pressing it into my skin after my toner. It targetsy main concern which is uneven skin tone but also helps with fine lines and wrinkles. I definitely recommend this!
When I applied the Korres Golden Krocus Ageless Saffron Elixir Serum, my skin was so SMOOTH, and my skin looked more radiant! My redness is basically gone but the smell is a little ify... but I would definitely be buying again!
Q & A
Can it be worn under daily make up and not cause oily silks ?
Does this have a scent? What results have you seen?
I have been wanting to try this elixir but I have oily skin and prone to breakouts. Has anyone that's oily has tried it? And what results do you get?
I have a two part question. 1) Does this work for dry to combination skin and 2) Is there any particular way to apply this to the face? Thank you
Does this work well for women in their early 30s with a recent onset of adult acne?
