After trying the Tarte Maracuja Oil and having some good results, I was really excited to try another face oil. One day Sephora was having a sale and with any $25 purchase you could get a sample of the Korres Wild Rose Vitamin C Active Brightening Oil so of course I had to do a little beauty shopping! Thankfully I have Sephora FLASH and I don’t need to reach the $50 minimum to get free shipping so this deal worked out nicely for me. This Korres sample is bigger than I though which is nice and since you only need a few drops for each use, it will last a long time. The oil has rose petals at the bottom of the bottle and has a beautiful rosy scent. When comparing the Maracuja Oil with the Wild Rose Oil, the rose oil is thinner and runs when you put it in your hand. The thinner consistency of the oil makes it so you have to apply the oil quickly or it could run through your fingers. When applying just this oil on my face at night, it doesn’t seem super moisturizing like the Maracuja Oil. According to the box, for maximum benefits you should apply this oil with a Wild Rose moisturizer. Some nights I will apply the Korres Wild Rose 24-Hour Moisturizing and Brightening Cream (review coming soon!) and then follow it with the Wild Rose Oil and I feel more moisturized. Without using the Wild Rose moisturizer, the oil doesn’t have amazing effects. I would like to see more my skin more moisturized with just the oil on it’s own. I probably will not repurchase this oil again.
