This is the first post in a series on Obsessions.
Recently I have become intrigued by the things I get obsessed with: the things I collect and hoard and dream of. There are not many of them. I am no collector nor a person fond of material possession or consumerist culture. But there are just a few things which I love to much to only have one of.
Korres is one of them.
Korres is a Greek beauty product company that I have known for since I was 13 years old. My aunt would use their products and I used the bathroom in their house I would spend extra long in there smelling her lotion bottles and perfume.
I bought a few Korres products on my own on my last trip to Athens in 2016, but this never amounted to an obsession.
For some reason, after I had my baby, I became very conscious of what I put on my skin. Tired of trying new brands of lotion and shampoo, being dissatisfied, and then trying another, I dreamt of having one brand I could go to for everything: skin care, hair care, body care, and that all of their products would be so great that I would buy anything they made.
That turned out to be Korres.
After a small order from their website online, I became addicted to their line of skin care and when HSN had a sale, I went a little overboard.
Here is my Korres bounty as of 2020, but there is no end in sight. I've got my eyes peels for new products and merchandise all the time...
