I have been using it every night for the past couple of months now, and my skin has never looked better. My complexion has evened out, my skin looks brighter and smoother. I love the smell and the texture - definitely will buy again!

I found a quercetin& oak regimen kit at Marshall for 16.99$.
This is a set of five skincare products: Day cream, night cream, face serum, eye cream and foaming cleanser.
I'm going to review only night cream and foaming cleanser in this review, because I haven't tried the rest of them.
Night cream comes in 0. 68 oz or 20 ml. In a squize package. I've been using it for about two weeks. I don't think it's enough time to see big difference, buty skin feels good. Before I was using neutrogena night cream which made skin itchy, then I switched to grape seed oil and it still was itchy. As soon as I started to use this cream My face is not so itchy!
Another thing I like about this cream is that it absorbs quickly and doesnt leave my skin neither oily, no dry. This is very important for me, because I have combination skin, winter time with dry patches and it's not easy to find a cream which will moisterize without leaving my skin oily. It also gives some kind of subtle glow in the morning. The smell is pleasant in my opinion, and not strong. It also fades away fast.
I don't know how much costs a full size package, but if its not very expensive I will buy it.
Foaming cleanser comes in the same packaging as the cream. It's a cleanser with milk proteins. I can't really form my opinion about it, because the amount I used isn't enough, but I would say its more moisturizing and more gentle than my Cetaphil foaming cleanser for oily skin. It foams easily and it washes off my make up easily.
I also appreciate the fact that this company makes such kits.This is an excellent way to try the products before buying a full size.

I love this night cream. My skin looks and feels better since using this...more even-toned, smoother, more plump, and tighter/cleaner pores. The cream has a great consistency that just melts into your skin leaving behind no oily residue, and I don't wake up with an oil slick across my t-zone either. I actually love the scent...yes, it does smell a little like play-dough...but I love it! The one and only downside for me is the price. I think it was $52 at Sephora. But I love it so much and it made enough of a difference in my skin, that I will bite the bullet and repurchase. The fact that it's from a natural line is another big bonus. I had been trying some night creams from other lines (Clarins) and really disliked the strong chemical fragrances and the never-ending lists of ingredients.

(placing this review under the night cream but it discusses other products in the line as well)
First of all, let me start out by explaining that I have rosacea-prone, fair, extremely sensitive skin. Even in my forties, just about everything makes me break out… air, water… OK, I exaggerate, but not by much. I have had some success with the Yves Rocher products designed for sensitive skin, but the redness relief treatment is just too rich for my skin in the summer. Also, they do not necessarily target aging skin. So, in desperation, I finally reached for the Korres Quercetin and Oak Age-Reversing Discovery Kit that I had received as a Beauty Insider bonus from Sephora, and I am so glad I did!
I have tried all of the products except for the eye primer. The face primer is OK but a little rich for my skin. The eye cream is amazing, and the dark circles under my eyes seem to have faded somewhat. I am not sure whether it is the serum, night cream, or a combination of both, but I feel like my skin is brighter and my cheeks do not look as sunk-in, if that makes sense. My face just looks less dull and more vibrant. And the line has not broken me out! As for the smell, I would not say that the products smell bad. The only one that smells a little weird to me is the night cream. Remember doing math homework and getting frustrated and erasing really hard and those little pieces of eraser would come off all over the paper? That’s kind of what the night cream smells like, but I am even getting used to it. I specifically gave these products a month before reviewing. I am really happy with the line and would tell anyone who may be on the fence due to sensitive skin to give them a try. I have already purchased full sizes.

For $49 you are getting so much research and technology in a night cream! I have dry/acne prone skin and this just did wonders for me. I didn't break out, it never felt have. It absorbed quickly which is what I want in a night cream. The smell is earthy and nutty so it's probably a love/hate thing. I suggest you get a sample of it and ask about how it was created next time your in a boutique or Sephora!

Love this night cream, been using this religiously for 1 week, and i can't express in words how much i love this, my brother who does clinical studies actually told me that oily combination type skin or oily skin should really avoid creams that contain mineral oil in them, why cause they clog pores really bad, so when i pick this up i was glad that it is mineral oil free, price is so expensive but i figure that if this is THE cream then i don't mind investing. i mean you rather invest in good skin care than makeup my own opinon, as if skin looks great any type of makeup on it will look super good,
anyways the smell don't bother me i love it
and this feels so smooth on skin. its enough for my oily skin at night, i prefer to load loads of skin goodies on my skin in the night time and i read somewhere that skin reacts to its optimum level at arould 10pm to 2am in the night, not sure how true is that,
but anyways i love this cream and wished this was alittle cheaper=)

I noticed a difference in my skin within 4 days of using this product! I am 32 and have been noticing i have dry rough skin with fine lines. I don't even remember having skin this nice when I was 20!!! My skin is absolutely glowing and radiant in the AM and my fine lines are def not as noticeable. Very surprised how fast this works, and I can't wait to see what the results will be when Im finished my first bottle. What an incredible product.

I got a sample of this from Sephora and I'm so glad I didnt get a full size. This cream is a perfect example of why I hate it when skincare companies market a cream as being 'for all skintypes' because this is most definately not for all skin types especially mine! Whilst I didnt mind the smell and found that it did sink in fairly nicely it actually broke me out in horrid cystic acne pretty fast (and this is dissapointing as my skin did have a nice glow to it in the morning). The other thing I have against this is that it is in jar-packaging which is neither hygenic nor effective in keeping the ingredients stable. AVOID if you have acne prone skin as it will only make things worse

I have very dry, sensitive, highly reactive skin due to a med condition that means I no longer produce any natural moisture barrier to my skin. I have some fine lines on my forehead and although I use and love Avene Eluage under my eyes but it has not done anything for my forehead nor the line between my brows. In two weeks of using this about every other night or so on my forehead, the area looks smoother.
I read others has a similar result but I didn't expect it myself or so quickly. I am now trying it elsewhere I see fine lines in the hope it will work just as well. To describe it, its unlike any cream I have used before. Its not emollient, in fact not it doesn't feel terribly moisturizing. It sinks in quickly, there is no sheen left on my skin, if anything, its somewhat matte. I don't really detect much of a scent, which is good. I have not had any adverse reactions, no bumps, redness, itching etc, this from someone who is allergic to most glasses (something in the frames gives me welts!), and so many other things. So many creams irritate me too much to ever get the benefits as touted. I have been using a deluxe sample size for two weeks only and far from nightly, that's why I am posting a review because it seems to have worked nicely in a rather short amount of time. Its no miracle but if it softens the other fine lines like the one between my eyes, I might be backing saying just that!

I was using Shiseido Benefiance but found it was just average. So, I went looking for a night cream that would really deliver a huge hit of moisture to my extremely dry skin. I've only been using the Korres Q&O for a couple of weeks and so far I really am impressed. Not only is my skin much more hydrated, but it seems more nourished & has more of a robust, healthy glow to it. Most definitely WAY better than the Shiseido Benefiance night moisture cream. I do notice Korres Q&O balls up once in a while - not sure why. I note people complaining about the smell, but I don't find the scent overwhelmingly strong or offensive. Actually, it has a subtle woodsy fragrance which I quite like.
So far, I quite like this product & am impressed. It's expensive, but so far it looks like it may be worth the steep price. I'll repost if my opinion should change after using Korres Q&O for a few months.
EDIT: Now that winter cold & snow have arrived here in Alberta, my Korres Q&O night cream is no longer hydrating enough. It's quite impressive in moderate weather, but it just isn't up to a Canadian winter. Sadly, I'm back to my search for an HG moisturizer. Sorry Korres. Maybe I'll come back to you in spring.

This is my HG Night cream. My fine lines are looking blurred and my skin is soft and I'm just happy that I don't look my age!! HG all the way! I've been using this since April 2011 and it saw the results in around a month. I love it!

This is a great product for mature skin. I am only 23-years-old, but I received a full-size product for free. The Quercetin it contains is a naturally occurring Retinol. The reason why it's so effective in minimizing wrinkles and improving elasticity is because it penetrates the epidermis and plumps fine lines and wrinkles from within. Collagen and elasticity will regenerate as a result of this cream. It's clinical trials have been highly successful and the product has pending patents. I won't be purchasing this on my own though because it can be a little too moisturizing for my combination skin. I usually look for brightening creams instead of line-minimizing. However, I would recommend this to mature clients.

I am on my second jar of this. It has done wonders for my forehead wrinkles, and is good (but not wonderful) on the frown lines. It has definitely helped improve the texture of my skin. My only complaint is that it doesn't do much in the firming department. I am back to Lancome Microlift R.A.R.E. for jowls, jawline, neck and under chin. I have been using that under this Korres night cream, and it's all good again.
If you are looking for a product that will work miracles on wrinkles, clarity, texture and moisturizing, this is it ! If you are looking mainly for a product that firms, I wouldn't suggest this.

HG Night Cream for me. I'm about to turn 30 next month so I went and bought this along with other Korres products and my skin has never looked better. I am so close to being make up free if I wanted to that it's amazing. You have to use it every night. My skin is clearing up and the little wrinkles that I do have are smoothing out. It's been almost a month and I have been sold and I will never change!

I received a sample of this, but because my skin is oily and prone to breakouts, I didn’t want to risk using a cream that wasn’t oil-free on my face so I only used is on my neck and chest at night. I got about six applications out of the sample. The formula was very thick and it spread and absorbed easily without any grease or residue (so it probably would’ve been safe for my face). But the smell of this was awful, a little rancid; I credited that to being a natural product, so I was shocked and very disappointed to read “fragrance” on the ingredient list. I have a dry, flaky patch on my chest that seems to come back based on the product I’m using, and it came back while using this. I found that odd because my oil-free Olay nighttime moisturizer heals that patch nicely and Olay is richer and creamier than this expensive cream. This cream wasn't impressive at all. Looks like I’m going back to Olay. I won’t buy this.

Well, I've been using this night cream for about two weeks now, along with my Boscia Clear Complexion kit (which I love btw!). So far, I really like it! It smells EXACTLY like Play-Doh, but that doesn't bother me, the smell doesn't last. I was looking for a moisturizer to use after using Boscia's Clear Complexion Treatment. I have oily skin so I was very happy that it is nice and lightweight. I'm not sure if I see any anti-aging benefits, as I've only been using it for two weeks (plus I'm only 21) but it is a very good moisturizer for me.

This stuff smells like play dough. No, it really does. Open up the jar and take a whiff before purchasing. It's pretty strong. My friend swears by this, and she has gorgeous skin, but for me, it gave me a bad allergic reaction. Red, itchy rash kind of reaction. Plus it smells terrible and is in a jar (WHYYYY cosmetic/skincare companies?! do you not hear us go 'ewww' with germaphobic disgust?!), which makes for a lot of germs possibly getting into your night cream every time you dip your finger to scoop a chunk out. My friend has really nice skin, so I'd say for some, this will work wonders, but for me, it just didn't work.

I used a full jar of this and I think it lasted me about 2 months. It is a nice cream and I did notice a difference and got compliments on my "glow." However I was using a retinol product as well. The only thing I didn't like was it would ball up sometimes when applying or if I rubbed my face afterward. It has been almost a year since I tried it and thinking about getting it again. I just can't help but feel that something better/stronger will help me look 20 again:)

I am surprised at how much I like this night cream. My skin feels so soft in the morning when I use it, which is not a small accomplishment, since my skin has become quite dry.
