Although this cream is for drier skins than mine, it smells so nice and does so good to my skin, that I can't resist repurchasing it over and over.
-the hydrating/ radiance effect is visible even from the first minute of application and lasts thoughout the day
-cheap (at least in Greece)
-I first used it as a teenager and I was surprised by how it made my few blemishes and redness on the cheeks disappear.
-it completely diminishes the itchiness+burning+tightness I feel after cleansing my skin.
-Someone may find it kind of greasy, especially if they don't have dry skin.
If you like products based in natural ingredients and free of most harmful chemicals, your skin is normal to dry or dry (not normal to mixed or very dry), i believe this is a worth trying+buying moisturizer.

This is the most perfect face cream for me. I use it at night, and it's perfect for my combo/dry skin. It's creamy and rich enough to feel substantial (I hate face creams that feel like water), but it absorbs quickly into my skin. I also love the scent...I usually hate scented face creams, but this one, along with the H2O Plus face cream, have fragrances that don't bother my skin and don't bother my olfactory senses. I've been using this for close to 2 months now, and I haven't had any breakouts. A friend got me hooked on this (revenge for getting her getting hooked on makeup in general). I've since bought the double pack from Sephora, and am tempted to get more.

It makes me break out. I am switching now.

I am very happy with the performance of this product. It does what it says it does, which is nice for a chance.
I have dry skin that is quite dull. I am also battling adult acne. I am in my late 20's and also really wanted something that would have anti-aging benefits but also hydrate and brighten the skin. I don't know about everyone else, but I always found that products only did (or claimed to do) one thing or the other. When I saw that this was geared towards brightening skin tone, reducing hyper pigmentations, and helping the signs of aging- I knew it was something I needed to try.
After using the product (the whole line) for almost 3 months, I can say that I am really happy about what it does and recommend it to everyone.
- Really reduced hyper pigmentation and acne scars. Nothing dramatic or epic but a noticeable improvement
- My skin tone is honestly brighter (have gotten comments)
- My skin is actually clearer than it has been in years! Everytime I try a new moisturizer, I am paranoid that it will make me break out. Not only did it not make me break out but I believe it helped keep my skin clear. I should also say that I am using pro activ, but I have been using that for a year combined with other moisturizer creams and had previously continued to still break out from time to time before using this
- The smell feels luxurious and feminine (I know some people hate it, but I like it)
- It is nice to support a smallish company in a Country (Greece) that is having financial difficulties.
- Could be more moisturizing. It is moisturizing enough for my dry skin but could be more so to be honest. I use ultra repair cream at night.
- The tub container is a bit unsanitary and not ideal.
I really encourage everyone to give this a try. I love it and plan to continue using it. I actually just ordered another wild rose kit (full size) online even though I am not even half way done with mine because I want to make sure I don't go without it for any period of time.

The winter has been extra drying to my skin this year and my eucrein moisturizer, while still awesome, just wasn't doing the trick. I went into Ulta and overheard one of the sales ladies telling another customer about this product, so as soon as the customer left, I approached the sales woman and had her give me some information on it. Instead of buying the full jar product, I purchased a kit of various korres products to see if I liked the whole line.
I started first with this product and in the beginning, I loved it. It was moisturizing and it smelled very nice on my skin. However, after having tried it for almost a month, I noticed about a 2 weeks ago I started to break out it parts of my face that just never, ever break out....I thought maybe it was stress as I have been under a lot of it lately. However, I continued to use this product....and I continued to break out. I now have switched back to my Eucerin cream for the time being until my face calms down a little.
It stinks because I had such high hopes for this product. Ah well.....

I got this because it is "natural"...
Well, it's not.I blame myself for not search for the ingredients before I buy it.
It doen't do its job either.I have dry skin and somehow it manages to make it even more dry..It's like I put a mask on my face.I can't even smile because i feel the dryness on my cheeks.
However, I'm not sure if it helps with discoloration.I have red spots on my face and I think they faded just A LITTLE...At least that's what I think...Maybe that's just me.

Not a product for sensitive skin. Made me break out BAD! Scent was nice. Too bad I can't use this cream.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry, Tan Hair: Black Eyes: Black
I have dry skin, and this works like a charm. I fell in love with Korres after purchasing their Wild Rose set. This being one of the product in the set is quite a good buy!
Not very expensive if purchased with the Wild Rose set.
Does its job.
I love the smell!
Brighten my skin - although I'm not sure if this is the moisterizer or the wild rose brightening mask/and the serum that came with the set.
One thing I dont like about this moisterizer is that after I clean my face, I notice that I can rub some residue off... although that doesn't really harm my skin or have caused any breakout.
Kind of sticky, absorbed kinda slow.

Bought this after leaving Sephora with a slew of samples while looking for something for greasy skin with a bit of SPF. Tried a B. Kamins, awful. Tried a Dermalogica, meh. Tried a variety of Clinique, meh to okay to bad.
This was the clear stand-out -- it goes on beautifully and does not, unlike just about everything else I tried, leave me greasy. Perfect.
Lovely smell and texture. I am using a powder make-up instead of foundation at the moment and this is a great base.
Nice jar, would've preferred a pump.
Unlike some other reviewers I like the low SPF. 6 was high, once...

Well, what MUAer would say no to glowing, fresh skin?
That's what this product promises.
I lucked out with some promotion where I got full sizes of the Korres Wild Rose Regimen. I had used samples previously, and I recalled how I loved the smell, at least- good memories.
I tend to only review products I fall in love with- figuring that "Hey, if I hate it, lots of people do, so why waste the keystrokes."
This stuff is TEH AWESOME.
My starting-to-age-skin is hydrated, and yes- glowy. I love cleaning my skin at night, just so I can bask in the lovely rose smell and luxury of this cream. It's a bit high for my price point- but it's worth if I don't look like a handbag when I am 40.
Rose has been used for centuries for its beauty benefits. I also use the Korres WR serum at night (gimme Olay chemicals during the day) and I am fond of the WR Mask as well.
Of course, YMMV... different skin types, yadda yadda disclaimer. But if your skin is pretty normal but just needs a pick me up- get this.
Like now, get this.
I feel sexy and indulgent slathering this on. It's worth the $$.

I purchased this product yesterday at Sephora. The consultant gave me a makeover using Korres as the moisturizer with the other products I purchased. This moisturizer already has improved my skin. My skin is brighter, and wrinkles are less visible. So far I have been using this product am and pm moisturizer until I can purchase more from Korres.

I got to say this is the best moisturizer I have used. It doesn't give off the greasy feel. It evens out my skin tone. It defly did take the redness out!! That was my biggest skin problem. I don't wear foundation or pressed powder and prefer the natural glow. I got to say ever since I started using this natural product, I'm an addict now. I will buy this over the over the counter products. It's more expensive, but it is so worth the money! After the first week, you can already see improvement. Highly recommended.
P.S. I have combination skin in the summer, dry skin in the winter. I am prone to acne and this product did not break me out at all!!

I got this in a value package deal from Sephora (full size). I've been using the moisturizer for about 3 weeks, and I can say that my skin is much softer and more comfortable than before, when I was using Perricone's Super line. I do find the scent a little cloying (Hello, Grandma!), but it disappears quickly. A little goes a long way, so at $35 a jar, I think I'll get my money's worth (price is one reason why I knocked it down from a 5 -- that and the ridiculous SPF of 6). My skin does have small areas of dryness late in the day, but I live in the northeast and wind here has been brutal. Is this a perfect moisturizer that leaves my skin like a baby's bottom and reverses signs of aging? No. But, it does boast more natural ingredients than most lines, it does do a better than average job at keeping my skin soft, and it comes in a generously sized jar. Will likely repurchase.

I've never used any products from Korres before so initially I was skeptical however, i was avidly searching for a paraben free, petro-chemical free product so I decided to give it a shot. I am very impressed with this Korres cream. I have dry combination skin so in the winter I get dry patches on my cheeks and extra oily around my t-zone and this cream gave me the necessary moisture for my dry patches but also did not make my t-zone extra oily so overall its a very well balanced product. I would definitely recommend this product and would repurchase when I run out. The following are a list of products that the Korres Wild Rose cream does NOT contain that i got from the Sephora website...
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Synthetic Dyes

At first I thought this was just another decent moisturizer. A friend of mine suggested this too me because my skin is very dehydrated this time of year. I loved a few other Korres body products but thought I would give a try. It's much more moisturizing than I thought it would be. I love creams versus lotions anyway. In the winter my skin just soaks up everything because I use BHA/AHA for my ace (Which is under control). I basically have aging, break-out prone but dehydrated skin. I am also highly allergic to chemical sunscreens which makes this cream perfect for me.It may only be SPF 6 but my derm told me to never rely on SPF in moisturizers and makeup and to ALWAYS apply a separate SPF to the face, so no biggie.
The more I use this cream, night and day, the better my complexion looks in terms of brightness and moisture retention. It actually makes my makeup look better! Typically I have problems with moisturizers balling up under my makeup, but this one left my skin smooth, absorbed well and keep my flakes away almost all day. I like the smell. It's an authentic rose smell rather than a synthetic one, it's very comforting. I believe that moisturizers should moisturize and serums should do the anti-aging and this one does exactly what I want. The price is not bad, you don't need much anyhow. I'm looking forward to trying the serum next!!!

Oh, how I love the entire Rose line. Does it smell good (or even pleasant)? No. It smells of grandmothers dousing themselves in old-fashioned perfume mixed with moth balls. However, this moisturizer is fantastic at perking up dull skin, and even though it's a lightweight cream, it is incredibly moisturizing.
I recently finished a jar of Wild Rose cream & decided to use up some facial products I'd already opened before purchasing another. Well, my face rebelled--drying out & breaking out at the same time. When I finished those products I went right back to the Wild Rose line. Within *one* use my face looked brighter and felt so much more smooth.
The entire Rose line is incredible. I don't ever want to be without it. (Sensitive, dry, break-out prone skin)

This is a great moisturizer. I began to had some dry patches due to retinol use. I couldn't put makeup on because of the flaking. I found this moisturizer in my drawer and after only one use the flakes were gone and my skin was smooth and soft. It also didn't brake my out like most moisturizers do.
I am not a fan of the smell, somehow this strong rose smell bothers me but I think I will buy it again just for moisturizing emergency.

Yayyy, HG. I hate those two initials with a passion, I always feel like I wanna save this one-time label for something better to come, but for the time being I can't help it: This turned out to be everything I've ever wanted from a moisturizer. I have dry skin and have tried my fair share of day creams that claim to be suitable for my skin type, and one thing I've retained from my HG quest was never to go anywhere near something that claims to be ideal for two different things, aka "normal/oily" or "normal/dry" etc. One product cannot possibly be equally suitable for two skin types immensely different to each other; it's gotta go wrong somewhere. This moisturizer was the exception to this rule of mine. Despite its "normal/dry" potency that I've found ineffective in products of the past, I still got it, and I'm so happy I did. It's been years since I've found a cream to fit my needs so perfectly. It's got a smooth texture and a lovely rosy scent, nothing overpowering though. It goes on easily and absorbs quite fast, without leaving any greasy/sticky residue like most of Korres's "loaded" moisturizers. All it leaves is a subtle sheen, which is no pro or con, since you can either cover it up easily with powder or let it show through a low coverage foundation. This keeps my skin supple, comfortable and "well-rested" all day long. No drawbacks to it whatsoever. Dry-skinned ladies, try this. Will repurchase.

This is my favorite moisturizer for day. I have only been using it for a few weeks, but it instantly makes my face glow. I sometimes switch up my day and night creams, and I've noticed my skin does not look as glowy and awake as when I use this. I like the smell, and I think the consistency is nice. It is a little thicker, but dissolves into the skin nicely. I have reddish and sometimes irritated skin around my nose, and when I use this cream it seems to calm my skin and even out the skin tone. I only wish the SPF was a little higher, but there is spf in my foundation, so I guess I am covered. I also am try to make the switch to more natural lines of skincare and makeup, so this cream is good for that. I am very happy with this product and will definitely be purchasing it again.

Thick and greasy, doesn't absorb very well into the skin. The scent is strong when you first apply, but afterwards dies down so you're not left feeling nauseous which is good. Doesn't do much to moisturize my skin though, and I feel like it emphasizes fine lines. Would not purchase.
UPDATE: I've found that this works really well for winter, so I have changed my review to would purchase again and added a lippie. It really helps if you have dry winter skin like me.
