This overnight facial-in-a-jar is said to be a breakthrough in beauty sleep. More than a mask, more than a night cream, it contains the Korres ‘Phos Compound’, a proprietary blend including a brightening agent and stabilised vitamin C. Uneven tone and dark spots will continuously improve.
Wild rose oil is a natural source of vitamin C, which demonstrates significant repairing activity to fine lines and skin colour disorders, while adding brightness and radiance to the skin.
TheChicGeek says, “I like a brand with confidence in their products. Greek brand, Korres, said to review this after one application. I’ve done three, but I did notice something after the first night, I just wanted to make sure!
My skin did look more hydrated and nourished. I didn’t realise at first this had a ‘brightness’ element, which means the discolourations in your skin are lightened and, hopefully, you’ll have a more even skin tone. This is a bonus element.
The rose fragrance did have me thinking I’d be going to bed smelling like Barbara Cartland minus the bed jacket, but it’s more a natural and lighter rose smell, which is really nice.
I’ve been encouraging men to use night creams for a while now. We joke about 'beauty sleep', but as this is the time your skin gets to repair, it’s good to help with this process. I really like this”.

TheChicGeek says, “Night creams are definitely something guys should consider as they get older. The skin does a lot of its repair work at night, so anything which aids and helps replenish this is surely welcome.
This is touted as an all singing and all dancing anti-aging cream. (Aren’t they all?!)The name and branding does look a bit 80s nightclub. That aside, the cream is rich and thick and it smells a bit like rubber. Still on the fence over whether I like this.
I’m always a bit dubious about rich creams on guys’ skin, as they are often too rich and cause spots and breakouts. This didn’t.
The main ingredient is ATP, which is also known as ‘fuel for life’, which naturally diminishes as you age. This product is said to increase that by up to 65%.
Also, as we age, we reproduce half the amount of hyaluronic acid we require, this is what holds on to the moisture in our skin, up to 1000 times its weight, but this chemical also reacts with light, so it good to be used, as here, in a night cream.
Did I wake up looking refreshed and plumped? Yes.
Did I wake up looking £125 worth of refreshed and plumped? I’ll need to carry on using it I think.”
Update - "More people than usual have been saying how well I look. It could be the CULT51!"
