This is so hyped by bloggers in my country, and unfortunately it doesn't live up to the expectations this creates. On me it acted like a run of the mill night cream. I saw no remarkable change or improvement. I have plenty of it left because I bought it twice in a set along with my very much loved Wild Rose Serum (set was actually cheaper than the serum alone) and I guess I'll use it up, but I wouldn't buy this otherwise.

I ordered this in a set that came with the 24 hour cream and the 2 step peel. I really wanted to like this and had been lemming it for over a year. I'm absolutely not sensitive to fragrance and I love the smell of rose. Just about anything rose is a winner in my book. Before I get into the cream, I'll say the 2 step peel is amazing.

I'm not sure what it is about this cream, but I'm beginning to HATE it. I've had it for about 6-8 months and I'm trying to force myself to use this and the 24 hour cream up. I can say one thing for sure, if you are sensitive to fragrance, or don't usually care for fragrance for personal reasons, skip right on over this. The smell is practically nauseating to me.

It does provide great moisture and it never has caused me to break out. I like this better than the 24 hour cream because it absorbs fast and is not greasy. However, it does nothing special at all. I'm usually not hard to please, I don't expect miracles or anything, but this cream is just meh. It's supposed to be brightening, but I haven't witnessed any major improvements.

I guess my final verdict is this: For the practically non existent benefits of this, the smell is way too much and the price is too much to justify it. It's like rubbing perfume on your face. It gets in my mouth and it irritates me beyond belief, no matter how hard I try to keep it away from my lips. It's like it permeates everything within a foot. If this cream was unscented, which I imagine would be completely possible, I would probably really like it. It's not unscented though, and the obnoxious fragrance destroys a good product.

Just for reference, I've been on a no buy because my skin care collection got out of control. I've been slowly working through my stash and these products were the last to finish because I couldn't stand them that much. I broke down and ordered some new stuff this week, and as soon as I get my goodies, I'm banning this stuff to hand cream until it's finally gone.

**Update**
Okay, here's the deal, everything I said before stands true. But... now that it is suddenly 10 degrees F/ -12 C where I live my skin got D.R.Y. like, wow dry :(. While I've been doing my nightly routine I've been ever so slightly disappointed with what I have left in my SC arsenal, feeling like I need something richer. I dipped back into this. It's moisturizing, but I didn't deny that before. I wish this was fragrance free, I really truly do :(. I'm going to buy something richer to use, but for now, I'm reluctantly using this to help battle the flakies. I did however bump up my rating since I obviously returned to this product even though I'm not the biggest fan. If the scent doesn't bother you, I'm sure you'd be very happy with this.

It somehow provoked me a lot of irritation and it triggered many HUGE stress pimples on my face. It smells amazing and I'm sad it didn't work for me because it was a gift from a friend :(

I have been using this as my night cream for the past two years. It makes my skin feel very moisturizing and soft over night. It has the most amazing rose smell. The price is fairly expensive. A bottle last me about 4 months. For the result I am willing to pay this price. Also, I am hoping Korres can improve the packing. The content is so amazing but the outside doesn't justify what's on the inside.

i had a sample size of this that has lasted me a good 3 weeks. i was super excited to try this as i love rose, vitamin c and brightening when it comes to skincare. however, i was underwhelmed by this product. overall, i felt this was more or less an overpriced glorified thick moisturizer. when freshly applied to my face, i could feel a warming and slightly tingling sensation, which was a little disconcerting... but at least it didn't break me out, dry my skin out, or turn my face into a grease-ball. in fact, it kept my skin fairly balanced which i liked. the smell (perfumed artificial roses) did linger for some time but it didn't really bother me. did i notice any brightening effect though? not really. i did use up the whole sample but am not planning on buying the full size as i feel there are less expensive that perform the same if not better.

I was overwhelmed by the heavy rose scent when I first started using it but have now gotten used to it. Feels heavy which is what I was looking for since the weather here is currently very dry. I would probably repurchase again but not immediately since I would try other products first.

Last night was the first time I've ever used this and I am beyond impressed! I woke up with the softest skin I've had in a very long time. My face is a lot more evened out too. I can't wait to see what it looks like after a week or so. I only got the small sample size of this with my Sephora order, and I'm worried it won't last long. It goes on thick and doesn't spread well so I fear it's a bit over priced for the amount of uses you will get out of it.
The product itself is amazing. Such a light beautiful rose scent, and it doesn't irritate me like some other rose products do. I love rose stuff but some just irritate my skin for the first few minutes. If you have money to spend I would highly recommend this for someone looking for softer, more evened out combination skin. I think I have about 3 more nights worth of it. If I'm this happy with it every morning I will definitely buy more. My skin has been very dry recently and this did wonders compared to other drug store stuff I've been trying.

EDIT: this stuff has lasted longer than I was expecting for sure, but I will keep the ratings the same.

This product is sort of complicated for me. (I have oily skin and some dry areas on occasion, especially during the winter. I also have pigmentation and scarring I'm trying to fade.) I love the hydration it offers. I wake up to clearer, more glowy skin. My skin feels and looks plumper. I don't love how strong the scent is and it doesn't fade too easily. The moisturizer is quite heavy and greasy feeling. I only use it before bed so that isn't too much of a problem, but it is slightly uncomfortable. I sometimes get some clogging if I use it too often. I absolutely could not handle using this every night. I think the product is worth the price even though it's not HG for me. I'm on my second jar.

This has to be one of my most favourite skincare products I have ever used.
I noticed a difference in my skin even after the first night and it actually made me buy the Wild Rose 24hour Moisturising and Brightening Cream and the Wild Rose Serum as well.
It is ideal for the cold winter-autumn months, it nourishes the skin and makes it smooth, soft and glowy.
Other reviewers say that the scent is bad, it has indeed a strong rose smell but for me that's not a problem at all, plus it goes away quite fast.
The only thing that bothers me sometimes is that it comes in a jar which makes it harder if you have longer nails but that's not very important.
I can't see myself using anything else for the next years. Completelly in love.
