Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser
Korres' Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser is a OK option for those with dry skin who are looking for a cleanser that won't strip skin of vital moisture… with one catch that keeps it from being among the best.
This cleanser comes in a squeeze tube and has a soft cream texture. It's pliable, easy to spread across skin, and creates a light foam when it contacts water. Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser does a good job removing dirt, oil, and makeup, plus it rinses cleanly. Even better, skin won't be left feeling dry or tight afterward. In fact, skin feels smoother after rinsing.
The issue with this cleanser is that it contains fragrance, which can irritate skin. Even though it's not as much of an issue because this is a rinse-off product, fragrance can still be a problem, and here it comes before some of the more beneficial ingredients this cleanser contains.
While it's a good option overall, there are still better to be found on our list of Best Cleansers.
One note: Yoghurt is in this product's name, and while yogurt powder is an ingredient here, it's the very last one, meaning you're not getting enough for skin to take notice!

Korres is a Greek cosmetics line that was started by Athens-based pharmacist George Korres and his chemist wife, Lena. From its humble beginnings with a natural cough syrup steeped in Greek tradition to a long series of herbal remedies using local ingredients, Korres eventually morphed into a line of skincare infused with natural ingredients, a strong pull for many cosmetic consumers.
A key difference for Korres is that many of the natural ingredients they use are chosen based on the principles of homeopathy, a form of alternative medicine involving the administration of various diluted herbal tinctures to improve diseases. Unfortunately, theres very little research-based support for homeopathy as it relates to great skincare.
Overall the Korres products are a fairly even mix of pros and cons. Many of their products are tricky for us to recommend, due to the frequent presence of fragrance (a problem for skin, whether it is natural or synthetically derived) and usage of jar packaging for several of their moisturizers.
