Hi I looked up Korres products they look great! please tellme which products you have enjoyed!You don't need to spend lots of money on your skincare products, that is true. But remember, the big brands are charging you for advertising and there huge company costs. The smaller, more unusual brands tend to have better quality ingredients I think.
Freddy & Mari are right, you should use a light cleanser in the morning. But the right moisturiser is key for you. caring for your skin now will make sure you stay looking younger. Keep it hydrated. Have you tried Korres? They have some amazing products!
