Ever since I started reading beauty blogs and blogging myself, I have become a little bit of a skincare junkie. Whenever a new product hits the shelves, I have to know more about it and usually end up giving it a try, so when I heard about KORE; a new skincare brand, I couldn't wait to see what they had to offer.
I was sent a luxury starter travel pack to test out, which contains seven miniatures from the collection. I've been using them for a month or so now, to get a real feel for the products and I really couldn't wait any longer to tell you all about the range.

KORE Skincare originates from Australia, and is created using a unique blend of ingredients based on scientific research. It works to prevent premature signs of ageing on the skin (it's never too early ladies!) and importantly to me and hopefully yourselves, it's cruelty free.
The products focus on restoring the skins healthy texture and regenerating a healthy appearance for the skin.

The pack of seven miniatures I have been using isn't available to buy, but it does come free with any orders over £100 on the KORE skincare website.

Foaming Cleanser: This cleanser is really gentle on the skin and moisturising, which is definitely a bonus as I find a lot of cleansers leave my skin feeling quite tight. It smells really good and foams up slightly while removing the majority of my makeup with ease. The cleanser has lots of benefits including enhancing cell renewal and boosting the skin's own defence mechanism.

Revitalising Toner: Another lovely smelling product, this smells really fresh and clean and also refreshes the skin when used. It's really cooling and feels great as a quick perk me up in my morning skincare routine, always leaving my skin feeling great. The toner refines pores, enhances the skins elasticity and removes dirt, excess oil and makeup.

Gentle Exfoliator: I have sensitive skin and this exfoliator really lives up to it's gentle name and is ideal for me to use on a regular basis, although I do like a really tough scrub every now and again. The particles in this are really fine and it feels like it's looking after my skin at the same time as buffing away any impurities. This works to allow the growth of new cells, remove blockage and improve skin tone.

Intensive Serum: This serum goes a long way, I have only been using a tiny amount and it sinks in really quickly. It contains Vitamin E which protects the skin from UV light and pollution, it's designed to combat premature signs of ageing and protects against dehydration - great for us dry skinned girls.

Restorative Day Cream: I don't usually wear day cream, but I found this worked as a wonderful base underneath my primer when applying my makeup. It is quite oily, so maybe wouldn't be great for people who don't suffer from dryness, but for me, I really liked it. It has a texture unlike anything else I have ever used and smells gorgeous. It helps to boost the production of collagen, brighten the appearance of sun damaged skin and the antioxidant formula reduces and prevents free radical damage to the skin cells.

Optimal Repair Cream: I've been wearing this cream underneath the serum at night, as it is a more intensive treatment. I find when I wake up my skin feels really soft and nourished... it's definitely doing something good! It contains wheat and soy protein which plump the skin and again fight those signs of early ageing.

Repairing Eye Cream: This was the only product I was a little wary about trying, as I have so many problems with sensitive skin around my eyes. I started out using a tiny amount, and found it really cooling on the skin, and I actually enjoyed wearing it. It hydrates my under eye area and works to help remove dark circles and puffiness. I thought this would be the one thing that didn't get used, but it's actually one of my favourites from the set.

For anyone looking for anti-ageing products or wanting to introduce something new into their skincare routine, I would definitely recommend giving these a go, I'm really impressed.

In full size, the packaging of the products is really sleek and classy with the purple and white colour scheme, they definitely wouldn't look out of place on a high end counter... as soon as my mini's run out, I'll definitely be adding a few in full size to my skincare cupboard.
Have you tried KORE Skincare before?
