Korres Fig Shower Gel Review-
Hi my lovelies!
I am sure you all have heard of the very famous natural Greek brand Korres which makes amazing body care & skin care products 🙂 I have loved their lip butters way back but didn’t have a chance to try other stuff since they are not available in India. They are widely available here though so I picked up a few of their shower gels & am reviewing the first one here today- fig.

My take on the Korres Fig Shower Gel-
The Korres shower gels come in sturdy dark tinted bottles with white flip-top lids. They are both easy to use & travel with & come with various accents to signify different variants.
The shower gel is very runny, almost watery & colorless and doesn’t foam up much. The gel is very mild & soft on skin and cleans without stripping the skin and making it feel dry 🙂 It removes every bit of grime and dirt though, and makes skin fresh,soft & clean. It has no harmful chemicals at all & doesn’t feel at all slippery.
My skin has been very bumpy & sensitive ever since I have given birth to my daughter & nothing seems to help it much. This shower gel is at least very soothing & gentle on skin & has not aggravated my bumps.
The fragrance is err..umm..I don’t even know how to describe it but it smells fresh & weirdly green like pulp of leaves & stems. I am not sure I like it much but it’s not at all overwhelming & fades in minutes so I am ok.
Pros of the Korres Fig Shower Gel:
1> Sturdy bottle packaging with flip-top lid.
2> Very runny, colorless mild shower gel.
3> Cleans skin well without stripping.
4> No harmful chemicals.
5> Great for all skin types including sensitive skin.
Cons of the Korres Fig Shower Gel:
My Rating: 4.5/5!
Do I recommend the Korres Fig Shower Gel?
Korres Fig Shower Gel is a lovely mild, soothing shower gel with no harsh or strong chemicals & comes in a variety of fragrances. It’s great for all skin types, especially sensitive skin & I would definitely recommend them if you get your hands on it.
