NEW! KORRES Castanea Arcadia Collection Debuts on HSN!

Korres Castanea



When you think of KORRES, the brand from Greece, you might think of bath and body products but did you know KORRES started as a pharmacy? KORRES was founded in 1996 based out out Athens’ oldest homepathic pharmacy. They believe in the power of plants and with a deep knowledge of over 3,000 herbal remedies, KORRES identifies the most powerful natural ingredients and maximizes their effectiveness using the latest scientific advancements.

One such advancement is taken from the leaves of the Arcadian chestnut tree. Lupeol is a powerful natural ingredient that contains incredible antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and skin-regenerative properties. Already renowned in the pharmaceutical world and the food supplement market, Lupeol has never before been used as an active ingredient in cosmetics due to its insolubility.

In designing the Castanea Arcadia Collection, KORRES developed an innovative molecule known as HALupeol, which encases pure Lupeol in a hyaluronic acid shell. This new molecule creates a special system that allows the active to penetrate the skin, reaching deep into the epidermis for maximum efficiency. And this new collection is making it’s debut on HSN on May 17th! 

Thanks to this innovative scientific breakthrough never before seen in beauty, KORRES has harnessed the power of the ingredient in the new Castanea Arcadia Collection, a line of transformative anti-aging creams that fight wrinkles and visible signs of aging making it perfect for us over 40 women!

Each innovative cream uses liquid crystal emulsion for a light, velvety texture. The crystals contain a delivery system that helps to reflect light, mimicking skin’s natural moisture to deeply hydrate. Formulated with active ingredients like betaglucan, black oat extract and lecithin at clinical efficiency, the creams reinforce skin’s natural moisture retention and bolster skin’s structure, leaving your complexion looking youthful and resilient.

KORRES Castanea Arcadia Day Cream (93.3% Natural Content, $49.50) is made with a nourishing blend of moisturizing Abyssinia oil, Apricot oil, olive oil esters, and sweet almond butter, the cream is rich in essential fatty acids, and vitamins A, C, and E for increased hydration. Though richer in texture than the Black Pine collection (reviewed here), this day cream does NOT feel heavy on the skin. It absorbs well and isn’t greasy. It keeps my skin fresh and hydrated all day without looking oily. Another thing I really appreciate is that this day cream does not ball up when I apply a primer over it.

KORRES Castanea Arcadia Night Cream (96.1% Natural Content, $59) is filled with Jojoba Oil D-panthenol which gives this cream its long-lasting hydrating power, while soothing Chamomile Oil is rich with nurturing antioxidants. Apricot Oil delivers a host of beneficial vitamins, moisturizing deep into skin and improving skin’s texture. Deeply moisturizing, my skin still feels hydrated the next morning! Rich in texture it doesn’t clog my pores and lets my skin breathe. Both creams have a lovely, slight lemon scent that is so pleasing!


KORRES Castanea Arcadia Eye Cream (96% Natural Content, $46) is formulated with extracts of Rhodiola Rosea Root and Oats. This eye cream instantly lifts, smoothes and firms the delicate skin around the eye, all while reducing sagging and brightening skin tone. Argan Oil and Jojoba Oil are rich in essential nutrients that increase skin’s elasticity and improve its texture, while calming Chamomile Oil and Apricot Oil deliver a boost of beneficial antioxidants with nourishing properties. If you remember, the KORRES Black Pine Firming, Lifting and Antiwrinkle Eye Cream didn’t work so well for me. I’m happy to report that is NOT the case with KORRES Castanea Arcadia Eye Cream. This is nicely hydrating, is NOT greasy and does not migrate into my eyes. It works beautifully under concealer and moisturizes throughout the day without making my mascara smear. My under eye area has been super dry from the Tria laser and this eye cream has saved me from peeling skin! As far as firming, I need more time to assess but I’m liking my results so far.


I’ve been using the KORRES Castanea Arcadia Collection for the last 3-4 weeks with great success. I’ve continued to use the Black Pine Firming, Lifting and Antiwrinkle Serum under the day and night creams as my first step, then the cream, sunscreen and eye cream. For those of us with dry skin, this collection provides deep hydration without looking or feeling greasy or being too heavy.

Available at HSN/ beginning May 2016

    I would love to keep my skin as firm and supple as when I was a young girl. The right choice of moisturizers and firming creams would help me achieve this goal. I will have to check out this new product you mentioned. If it worked for you, I guess it would for me too.
