Korres is a fantastic beauty brand offering covetable and unusual gifts all inspired by the Mediterranean landscape of Greece. Its Christmas collection of gifts are emblazoned with sunny, colourful designs to link back to their Greek roots and are instantly cheering.

The Guava Collection, £20, adds a touch of exoticism into their usual mix of ingredients and the three products work together to make what is a heartwarming treat for the middle of winter. The gift box contains a lush body butter to hydrate limbs, a guava shower gel which smells amazing and feels super-luxe and a mandarin lip butter to stave off chapped lips.

Another must for beauty lovers is the Bergamot Pear Collection, £15, which contains a body milk and shower gel. Reminiscent of sunny walks in the fragrant countryside, these products all have a fresh, fruity and floral fragrance that seems to linger on the skin for hours after using them. Citrus and aquatic notes combine with a fruity base to set the holiday mood. Clean off the day’s debris and soak your body in the milk for a delicious, indulgent bath-time routine.

I have a written about Korres before. It’s one of my favourite bath and body brands and has a long-standing history to boast about. Its roots are anchored in Athens’ first ever Homeopathic Pharmacy. The first KORRES product was an aromatic herbal syrup with honey and aniseed, which George Korres’ grandfather used to favour in his hometown on the island of Naxos. The beauty brand was set up in 1996 and now offers a range of natural and certified organic products.
