Korres is advertised as a natural brand. It is not. I bought this only to find out that it has irritating chemicals in it. I had a bad experience with it and brought it back to the store. I expected more from such an expensive *natural* product. Effectiveness Although the fragrance was fantastic, the performance of this stuff was awful. Not only is it NOT natural, but it is pretty expensive for the quality that this gel is. I found the gel to be very drying and it left my skin too tight and even caused dry patches and itching sooner than other products I have had trouble with. My was irritated and I really didn't like how much I had to apply moisturizer just to compensate for the way this gel stripped my skin.

Scent I love the smell of basil and the addition of the lemon was a really nice mix. I am sad that I could not use this body wash because the scent was so nice. This is definitely a scent that could be used well by men. For the price it is, however, you might as well get other brands that are cheaper.
