Wild Rose by Korres: Unify your skin tone

Fall season has officially began and days become shorter which means less hours of sun. Depending if you have well protected your skin during summer, you will notice uneven skin tone. Generally, dark skins are more subject to be exposed to discoloration issues due to hyperpigmentation.

Whatever your skin types, Wild Rose helps reduce the appearance of skin discolorations and restores skin tone. Moreover, Wild Rose products are not tested on animals and suitable for vegetarians/vegans.
