This is a superb product. It has a super lightweight consistency and provides a medium coverage. I don't know if I would call it a "tinted moisturizer" as the coverage is way above the coverage of an average tinted moisturizer, but I was pleased with the coverage none the less. The spf is a major bonus too. I just love using this through the summer, and I was quite disappointed when Sephora stopped selling it. Its still available through the korres website, but I hate ordering online. My only complaint is that it tends to accentuate pores after 5 or 6 hours of wear. It also oxidizes quite a bit, so you have to buy a shade lighter than your skin tone. All in all though, great summer alternative to a traditional foundation.

This lighweight tinted moisturiser should be renamed, oil free foundation! It provides very good coverage, however has no moisturising properties at all. I quite like this product as its coverage is so good that I don't need an additional step of a concealer. It is very good when you are in a rush!

It's got beneficial ingredients for your skin, the scent isn't offensive, provides light coverage. It did accentuate the dry patches and my pores. And it didn't work well with the primer from the same brand. As I was putting on the tinted moisturizer, the primer was peeling off my face with every stroke if that makes sense. I'd never buy this again.

This is my favorite tinted moisturizer so far. A lot of people complain about how drying it is, but that is because it is an OIL-FREE product, hence perfect for oily skin like mine. I think the coverage is perfect. This product is yet to break me out, provides a light-medium coverage, smells amazingly of watermelon, and is all natural.
The downside is the fact that it isn't too moisturizing, so it is not good for dry skin. I don't have dry skin so this isn't a problem for me but I do like to moisturize, so I apply moisturizer before the tinted moisturizer. Also, it only comes in three shades! I am a pale olive, so it is hard to find a shade that matches perfectly, but the closest was shade 1, which is called 'sand' I believe. And in summer I might be able to get away with the medium shade. I recommend this product to anyone with oily skin! It probably isn't best to apply a powder on top of this product, as it is a little drying and your skin might get a bit flaky. Instead, I apply it with a sponge (makes it a little sheerer but that's what I prefer) and spray MAC Fix which sets the tinted moisturizer on my face - works perfectly for me.

i wish i didnt buy this product. GOD.
okay, i know this is natural and all good. but honestly this tinted moisturizer slided off my face at the end of the day.
Give your skin a really nice glow when u put on for the first hour
Tends to exaggerate your flaws (pores,blackheads, acne) after 1-2 hours
Slides down ur face/breaks down
Bad for dry skin (STAY AWAY!!!)

I'd read good reviews of this but now wish I hadn't wasted my money. I purchased this to try another natural SPF; as I am fair and freckled I wear sunscreen every day.
The colour doesn't mesh with my skin, it just sits on top of it, looking fake and highlighting any inconsistencies.
It smells lovely but this is pretty much the only thing going for it.
I've gone back to my Invisible Zinc tinted moisturiser, which is so much better.

This tinted moisturizer works more like a foundation for me. I dont like use tinted moisturizer alot cuz I found them very plain as the whole concept is not moisturizing enough than normal moisturizer and not enough coverage as foundation. However, Korres watermelon one brought my attention cuz it does offer quite good coverage and the smell is good. When I first got it, I found it drying very fast so u have to work really fast to blend, then I found a better way to apply it is to dot little dots onthe entire face and blend in with warm fingertips. I don't have flawless skin but most of the time I don't even need to use much concealer after this, just top up with my jurlique rose powder and I'm ready to go. The downside of this product is I found it a little dark for my skin in winter time even though I'm using the lightest shade they have on offer. In addition, the lasting powder is not as good cuz by the end of the day it's turning a bit ashy and especially near nose area it's getting flaky for some reason. Until I find a better product, this is still my go to tinted moisturizer.

I just started using this product two days ago and I'm really loving it. I thought of using it for work when I bought it but to be honest its coverage is so good I'm using it on nights out as well. You'd only need concealer with it and its really easy to apply.
Another pro is that its slicone and oil free, which is great for my combination skin. I bought #1 Sand and its abiiiit darker than my colour, which gives me a slight healthy tanned look.
The only three cons I'd say are 1: The watermelon smell, which is only there on application really so its not a bother once it has dried. and 2: You need to apply this moisturizer and spread it on your face quickly. If not it would sort of dry in place within seconds. 3: It leaves my fingers sticky after application, curiously not my face though. So just give your hands a good wash right after you apply it.
These cons are very tiny and easy to be dealt with, so I'd really suggest you give it a try

Since I bough this product I have stopped using my foundation as there is really no need to put anything else, except maybe concealer. It is very lightweight which is good for my combination skin. Need to take care when applying it on, make sure the lighting is good and you're not in too much of a hurry (I took a dark tan one)
I really like this product as it gives a lovely, natural, tanned look and my skin looks healthy.

The texture is very liquid and slippery. If anyone has ever used the Sonia Kashuk tinted moisturizer, then this is even more liquidy than the Sonia Kashuk.
Good packaging with a sealed bottle with no transparency [good to prevent degradation of product].
The pigmentation color closely fits me. I picked the light sand color and i'm usually about nc 25. Not for cool toned people because it is very 'yellow.'
The density of pigmentation is is very light, so i got an uneven coverage and my redness could not be covered and my acne pigmentations could not be covered.
Not a very good moisturizer or foundation because it simply sits on my skin and looks unnatural. Its not cakey but it does not like i am in my own skin.
I have tried to salvage this tinted moisturizer by using moisturizer before using this product and it doesn't perform like a moisturizer or foundation.
I see also slight shimmers or glitters in the tinted moisturizer. Blended into the skin, I see the slightest reflective glitter on my face, which I do not like.
I like the high coverage sun protection it provides [spf 30] and it does not leave a white looking castover the face.
I bought this during the korres online sale.
I would not purchasing this full price and at any price.
Some ingredients in this is giving me an ALLERGIC reaction. My face stings upon application of this product. My face gets red and after I stop using this product, my face still hurts from the application.
I love the Korres philosophy and ideals, but this product and I are not meant to be.

After a few uses I can finally be certain about something I suspected since the beginning: I'm quite disappointed in this product. I really love Korres as a brand. I guess it doesn't love me back. The only good thing about this product is the SPF 30 - that can be found anywhere though. People buy this one when they want a kind of an all-in-one product for summer: A moisturizer with high SPF and decent coverage. Well first of all, it doesn't moisturize. It's a foundation. It is literally a liquid that pours out of its poor packaging and dries within 5 seconds, however the coverage is very high - depending on how you apply it (I use my hands), it's medium to full. But what I mentioned above is not the worst bit about this product. No no, I could live with its being a tinted moisturizer that doesn't moisturize, or with its sucky texture. The worst part of it is, it turns me into an oil-slick within a couple hours. ME! Dry-skinned, moisture-hungry me. This has never happened to me before with any product. The other day I wore it for about 5-6 hours straight, and at the end of the day I came home looking ridiculous. I was nearly dripping. People looked at me funny in the bus. For the first time ever, the concept of blotting crossed my mind, in order to remove oil my skin doesn't even produce. I don't know whose oil that is, but it ain't mine. So, bottom line: If you need SPF 30, get a sunscreen with SPF 30. If you want a medium-buildable coverage foundation, there are tons out there. If you're looking for a moisturizer, flee before this one. And if shine is what you crave, you got it. Won't repurchase.

I was looking for a good natural(-ish) tinted moisturizer with SPF - well, this isn't it. I bougt this for a few euros, as the brand was being discontinued in my country and I'm glad I didn't pay full price for this.
I have pretty fair combination skin, large pores on my t-zone and dry spots on my cheeks. This product seemed to accenturate all my skin's flaws. I applied it on top of moisturizer and still, my dry spots were emphasised, as were my pores. At application, this feels super greasy (even though it is oil-free!), almost plastic-y and it doesn't get better with wear - it sits on top of the skin like a mask. And don't even get me started on Korres' "natural" image....
On the plus side, the packaging is practical and the colour adapts nicely if you blend it fast enough (which you have to, as it dries really quickly).
This might work if you have flawless skin, but alas, it just wasn't right for me.

I must say, I'm pretty disappointed in this. Seeing as I love natural products I was quite excited to use this. Firstly, this TM dries extremely quick, making it almost impossible to blend into your skin and isn't moisturizing at all. I have combination skin that can look dry depending on the product and this definitely accentuates ANY sort of dry spots I have, even under my lovely Dior moisturizer. I applied it using a brush (left a streaky mess) and then another time with my fingers (better, but still did nothing for my skin but have it look overly dry and matte). After a couple of hours of wearing it I'm left with random patches of product and it looking like it is just sitting on top of my face. The best I can say is that it smells good and has decent staying power, although that is clearly not worth how awful my skin looks wearing it. Guess I'll just be sticking to their bronzer!

I was attracted by this products because of the fact that it combines 3 products (moisturizer, foundation and sunscreen) in one. Additional benefit is that it is natural cosmetics that do not harm the skin. I am surprised by the coverage, it is great for tinted moisturizer. And the lightest shade is the perfect color match for me. Generally, I love this for the first half an hour after application, after that my face is total mess - oily, shiny, large pores looking even larger. So, this could be good product for dry skin types, but not for me.

I generally like this product. I am very fair skinned so its hard for me to find a good shade. I picked the lightest shade and its semi dark. One thing i dislike about this product is the application, i find if you dont rub it in completely there are orange spots. the best way to apply this product is with a beauty blender!! I like the coverage alot. Great product, just have to know how to use it :)

The best thing about this tinted moisturizer was the packaging - it's in a tube so it's easy to get every last bit of product. However, that wasn't enough to like the moisturizer. The colour matched my skin pretty well and it does dry fast so I had to apply quickly. At first it seemed like it evened out my complexion, but about half an hour later the moisturizer dried in clumps on my face. It made every dry spot visible and sunk into my pores. My skin looked absolutely terrible! Too bad, because I was so excited that it was supposedly a natural tinted moisturizer..

This feels kind of thick and icky on my skin. Also it looked horrible b/c the color does not match (it was too light), but that is not a problem of the product itself. The product itself also smells kind of weird.. I guess it does smell like watermelon, but not pleasantly. Not a big fan of this, wish I had not wasted my money. Might work on other skin types, but on my (dry) skin, it's just a sub-part tinted moisturizer that smells weird.

I have really mixed feelings about this product so far (I've been using for 2 weeks).
Pros: packaging (easy to squeeze out unlike Benefit You Rebel), coverage - way more than normal, colour - I got 01 it looks orange on the back of my hand but fine on my face, and spf - I hate putting products on my face (super oily) so a combined moisturiser, spf and founfation is great for me.
Cons: expensive! Really small tube for the price, drying time - this sets in literally seconds, I have to mix it with moisturiser for any chance of spreading it evenly over my face quickly enough, and wear-time - this gets shiny on me by midday but as I said I do have super oily skin and have to mix this with moisturiser when applying.
Overall I'm happy with it, I've been wearing it everyday since I bought it and would probably repurchase (but in 02 for summer). I think your fingers are best to apply this with, it sets way too quickly for a brush and it will just look streaky.

I bought this because I have used the primer from Korres with much success. Unfortunately, I wasn't as happy with this product. I found the texture to be sticky, sort of plasticky almost dry...strange for a tinted MOISTURIZER. I liked the coverage, much more than most TMs, and the finish was matte, which was pleasing. As the day wore on though, it started to look dry and cakey, and it didn't like the addition of powder at all. Maybe someone young with oilier skin might have more luck.

This is such a good tinted moisturizer! When you put it on, it feels so light, like you don't have anything on. It gives medium coverage too, which most tinted moisturizers don't. This product also has really good benefits and vitamins which will make your skin much better in the future. It doesn't break you out either.
It has a really nice smell too. It lasts you all day. I tried to wear it without setting it with powder and it still stayed on, ever after my dance class.
