It's a sensitive skin (and "Mamma Mia!") lover's dream.

This Greek Beauty Brand Made Me Want Yogurt On My Face Forever — And You Can Get It On Sale

- The Mediterranean diet of Greece has been renowned for centuries as being one of the healthiest in the world, so it's no surprise that Greek skincare brand, Korres, would be just as holistic and clean.

- I have easily-irritated, acne-prone, combination skin but the ingredients in Korres' Greek Yoghurt line have been a go-to when my skin is feeling particularly irritable in the past several months.

- Though each product in the Greek Yoghurt line wavers in how effective it was on my skin, the Greek Yoghurt Calming + Cooling Gel was a standout product I'll recommend to anyone with sensitive, combination, or oily skin for its ability to cancel out redness and how quickly it showed results.

-Purchase any product from Korres with a 20% discount using the code "ODYSSEY20".

Every beauty junkie knows and loves Korean and Japanese beauty brands. Before these country's beauty secrets blew through the mass consumer market, Sephora-loved Greek beauty brand Korres has been leveraging the ancient beauty secrets of the Mediterranean country, with every clean, natural ingredient grown and made in Greece itself.

As someone who spent most of the late '90s and early 2000s watching beauty vloggers on YouTube, I've known about Korres for years — for nearly a decade, beauty gurus have been singing the praises of the brand's rose moisturizer for its natural, clean ingredients and brightening effects.

I used to suffer from terrible, cystic acne in my late teens and early 20s. But, now that I'm in my late 20s, other than preventing the small, occasional hormonal breakout, my main goal is to calm my easily-irritated, combination skin and to lighten acne scars from past breakouts.

When Korres sent me their Greek Yoghurt line of products to test out, I was thrilled to see much of what the line touted was its calming effects. Not one of the products irritated my skin, but there were certainly some I'd recommend over others.

Best yet — the products are available to Odyssey readers at a 20% discount with the code "ODYSSEY20."

Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser


I appreciated how gentle this foaming cleanser was. It was a great go-to for a gentle morning cleanse to lather up without stripping my skin of its natural oils before continuing my daytime skincare routine. But, for evenings or trying to get makeup off, I found the cleanser a bit too gentle.

I have large pores that easily catch dirt in them, so it wasn't aggressive enough to get out those deep impurities, especially if I've spent a lot of time outside, but I loved using it in the morning and highly recommend this to anyone who has really sensitive or dry skin.


Nourishing Probiotic Gel-Cream


I loved how light this probiotic gel-cream felt on my skin, and despite the fact that it was super lightweight on my skin, it was extremely hydrating. The time-released formula is unique in how it keeps skin hydrated without making it look oily.

Though you could use it night and day, I recommend this for daytime for the way it hydrates and balances the skin without making it look particularly dewy. I have combination skin with oily and dry patches, and this really evened out the look of my skin.

Though it is marketed as a hydrating product, I would highly recommend it to people with combination skin like mine. I'll be honest, I tend to prefer a more dewy look so this wasn't particularly for me, but if the dewy look doesn't interest you, I highly recommend this moisturizer.


3D Eye-Lift Super Serum


The first thing that struck me about this eye serum was it's unique and luxurious syringe-like packaging. Though I'll admit, it was a little gimmicky rather than functional, that didn't change how cool it felt to use it.

I'd have to admit this was probably the least effective of the products I have used from Korres. For the price, I was expecting a bit more — it didn't really have much of an effect on my genetic dark circles, and since the skin under my eyes tends to be on the dry side, I need something a bit more hydrating for my under-eye circles.

As a serum, it's meant to be topped with another eye cream, which I did, but I didn't notice any difference in my eye circles after using it for several months.

This would be a great addition to the skincare regime of someone who has young, oily skin and might just want to get started out using eye creams to reduce minor puffiness. The honeysuckle extract in it works wonders for protecting the skin from free radicals, so it's a great product to use preventatively.


Calming + Cooling Gel


My absolute favorite product from the line, I recommend this cooling gel to pretty much anyone. I use it in several different instances with my skin. Though I don't see it having long-term effects on my acne scars or anything, the short-term effects are astounding.

First off, the cooling effects of this gel aren't just a gimmick — this actually feels like I stored it in the fridge when it was just in my bathroom drawer. I'll use it after doing a particularly aggressive exfoliating routine or clay mask to make sure my skin doesn't react too aggressively.

I also use it when I feel a hormonal breakout coming along around my jawline, and it works like a charm when I wear it overnight to prevent acne from surfacing. The cooling effect doesn't just feel good — anything cold has a tendency to shrink pores, so this also makes my skin look like I blended a blurring primer over it.

It actually has yogurt in it, which is great for boosting collagen, so it makes skin looks extra plump and gives skin a healthy, dewy look.


Probiotic Superdose Face Mask


My other favorite from the Greek Yoghurt line, this probiotic face mask felt luxuriously spa-like on my face.

I do a solid masking routine at least a couple of times a week — it traditionally involves a chemical peel followed by a deep clay mask or peel, and ends with a hydrating, restorative mask to ensure my skin feels balanced and doesn't look red after all of the deep cleansing I've done.

The thick, luxurious feel of this makes wearing it a whole sensorial experience. The directions say to only wear it for about 15 minutes, but I leave it on for even longer. When I take it off, my skin looks instantly brighter and instead of the dry feeling I usually get after masking, I look fresh-faced and dewy, like I actually walked out of a spa, when I use this.

I also recommend this as a great go-to if you have skin that is usually too sensitive to use traditionally exfoliating face masks. The antibacterial aloe leaf juice in it is a key ingredient for cleaning skin that may be sensitive, acne-prone, or dry.

I'll recommend this cleansing, dew-inducing mask to nearly any skin type.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."
