I really wanted to like this moisturizer because I happen to love the light pomegranate scent. But unfortunately, this product definitely gave me whiteheads and was just too greasy for my combo skin. I'm sure on normal or dry skin it would be great, but didn't work for me. The glass jars that Korres moisturizers come in aren't the greatest, I'd prefer a pump or tube.

This works very well for my combo skin. I like the smell and texture, the spf, and the organic ingredients. I re-packaged mine into a pump. Bought in Greece and would buy again.

After reading all the good reviews, I was expecting to love this, and i wanted this to be "the one" for my face. its not. its super greasy and makes me SO shiny. i was realy disappointed. This also didnt last very long, and I almost dont want to finish it. And the little jar is so unsanitary! I also felt like this didnt moisturize well. The only plus is the SPF.

This moisturizer is great for anyone with normal/combination skin. My skin tends to get drier in the winter (like most people's) but I can still continue to use this moisturizer in the wintertime. I love the smell and the texture. I also love that they've stamped an expiration date on the bottle so you know exactly when you should go and buy a new one, though I'll doubt that'll be necessary because you'll probably use it up well before it expires. This is a great skincare line that uses natural products so it's good for sensitive skin. Lastly, pomegranate is an excellent antioxidant. Antioxidants are good for any skin type and any age group. We all need protection from harmful free radicals and pomegranate helps protect the skin. Two thumbs up!

I really wanted to like this product, having read the reviews and loving other Korres stuff..however, my skin is changing due to my recently starting to take thyroxine, and this stuff was just too drying for me. The smell is fruity but it fades really fast which is what you want on your face; and the texture is like a gel, which absorbs fast and leaves you skin soft. However, on me it just made my face soft, and RED, and really dry after about a week. Its such a shame because if my skin hadn't changed, I think I would have loved it.

This is the only moisturizer that doesn't break me out. I have VERY acne-prone skin, and this goes on light and is perfect to put on under foundation. I tried switching to other moisturizers but am coming back for sure - I recommend this to those who are acne-prone or have oily skin. Definitely am not a big fan of the packaging though - that's why I took off a lippie.

I love everything Pomegranate, so I was very excited to try this moisturizer, but it had the most nauseating smell. I soldiered on thinking that I need to know how it works for my skin so I let it sink in, and that took a while - which is weird because my skin is relatively dry this time of the year. What's even worse it made me look greasy all day even with powder on. Combined with the unsanitary packaging and SPF of only 6, I will not be buying this product. I know a lot of people here love it but it is just not for me. I am so glad I sampled it first. Sugar Crystals one, however, is knocking me over. I think that one is for me.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Medium, Warm Hair: Black, Straight, Medium Eyes: Brown
the only reason im knocking off a lippie is that ive been breaking out slightly, and i cant tell yet if its due to this moisturizer or not. otherwise, this moisturizer is perfect: it has a very light, almost gel-like consistency that allows it to sink right into my oily/combo skin without making it look greasy. i wish the SPF was higher, since this is only spf 6; however, i do like that all the ingredients are organic. the smell is very faint, and i do like it. i adore the packaging, since i dont mind dabbing my fingers into the jar. overall, i think this is a wonderful product for the price ($25 USD, if i remember correctly), and i really hope my breakouts are caused by something else, because i want to keep buying this!

It is very good for normal to oily skin in warm weather time. Its ingredients is so orgainc and even the sunscreen in it is physical sunscreen. I will buy it again.

After reading such positive reviews on this moisturiser I decided to give it a try. Unfortunately as much as I wanted it to , it didnt work on me since after using a couple of days I broke out around my chin area. I was so determine to like it that I gave it another try and started using again after a month. THe same results. And it is a shame cause the price is awesome and the packaging great (For the record I have nor/com skin and I am in my early thirties).

good stuff!!! guys ive come to the conclusion that the people who work at sephora are stupid, anytime you go in there and say you have acne prone skin they always direct you to murad, but dousing your skin in chemicals isnt ALWAYS the best way to heal it
per the MUA reviews.. i purchased this moisturizer, and i think its AWESOME...my t zone isnt as oily and it has not broken me out ( and im pretty break out prone), just wish it came in a pump b/c i dont feel like the tub is very sanitary.
overall.. i would buy this at any price , and highly recommend it

Bought this based on reviews and am very thankful I did! I have tried many different moisturizers, but this is the only one that hasn't made me breakout (for the last few years my skin has gone crazy and has become very acne prone). I don't mind the scent, love the texture, and I don't mind the packaging at all. My skin feels 100% softer since I've been using it, and my mother commented that the texture of my skin also looks great. A definate repurchase!

I really want to like this product, and hate to give it a less-than-perfect review. I've been using it for about three weeks, and so far, so good. It's a bit heavy for use during the day under my makeup, as it makes me greasy (although I don't mind it at night). Maybe I'm using too much of it? The smell was a bit funky at first, but after a few days I didn't notice it.
As far as the packaging, I wish it came in a pump -- I hate having to dip my fingers into the jar, but a lot of moisturizers come that way, so I can't really lower its score for that aspect. :o)
For only $24, this product is definitely worth a try. I'm searching for something else to use during the day, but I will probably repurchase this for night use.

I use this in conjuction with the Wild Rose cream. It's great for those humid days when I don't want too much shine and it creates an amazing make-up base.
It has a refreshing, light gel-cream consistency and is quickly absorbed leaving a nicely moisturised feeling. My skin feels so smooth, clear and soft. This also does not irritate my sensitive skin or cause any break outs.

I just moved to CA from the midwest and my skin has been going crazy! Never used to break out or get greasy but for some reason my skin is rebelling here. Had to completely reorganize my routine and search for new products. After reading the reviews here I decided on this product, and I'm really happy with it. Great lite scent, consistency is perfect . . . just enough to moisturize but not too much so your face gets oily. You only need to use a tiny bit for your whole face so I think it will last for awhile. I don't find the tub to be inconvienant at all. Overall, a wonderful, quality product.

NEVER under-estimate the value of a perfectly simple product. It does everything I could ask for in a moisturizer. I could have picked up the Mandarin SPF 8 or this Pomegrante with an SPF 6. I ultimately chose the Pomegrante because of the scrumptously delicious scent. It's an absolute joy to use this cream in the morning because of the pick-me-up scent. It's light, quick to be absorbed and tempers the oily patches well throughout the day. I have gotten compliments from friends on how pretty my skin looks after using this porduct for 3 weeks. I will definitely be repurchasing.

This turned out to be a great moisturizer after all! I must admit that it is an unbeatable product.It does control my face's shining esp on the T-zone but it moisturizes beautifully my somewhat dry cheeks.And above all it contains SPF and its consistency isn't thick at all! It hasn't break me out yet and i've been using it for almost 2 weeks now
I would certainly repurchase it!

First of all I want to comment on how great the price point is on this moisturizer $28US. You will have a hard time finding another face cream that has the same type and quality ingredients as this for a similar price. I just love it. Esp. for summer w/my combo skin. Give it a try, you won't be sorry.

I love this moisturizer! My skin has been going through a rough patch lately, what with all the stress in the workplace, breakouts, extractions and being in air-conditioned rooms all the time. I have combo skin that's sensitive and prone to break-outs and (even worse) comedones. I've been using products from the place where I get my facials done and among them is an alcoholic roller-type thingy that's supposed to reduce break-outs and unclog my pores. Well, it's demolishing (some of) my breakouts all right, but it's also destroying my skin while it's at it. Needing a moisturizer immediately as my skin was peeling left right centre, I headed on to Tangs and looked at Korres products as they don't contain silicones (which clog my pores and cause me to break out a while after I've started using the products) and their philosophy is similar to my beloved Aveda (which I don't have access to in Singapore). I tried the Mandarin moisturizer and this Pomegranate one. In the end, this mositurizer won me over with it's oh-so-beautiful scent that's incredibly light, fragrant and natural and the speed with which it gets absorbed so I don't feel like my skin is not in contact with air. This helped to chase away all the flakies and I have to say that it made my skin look mucho better and brighter in the morning. My pores were also slightly smaller. Yay! This beats even my previous fave, the Aveda moisturizer, which was really moisturizing and great in Adelaide but made my face really greasy (and comedones to develop on my neck) in Singapore, though I have to say the fault lies with my skin, not the moisturizer. I should have known better. Anyway, the Pomegranate's moisturizing properties last throughout the day and my skin is no longer dehydrated. The best thing is that it's relatively oil-free. It really does regulate oil production, though not in the way of most mattifying moisturizers which tend to dry your skin and clog your pores. Best of all, it contains sunscreen (SPF 6); strong enough if you stay mostly indoors during the day but not too much. The packaging is nice, with the frosted glass jar and burnished metal cap, though I would have liked a pump better as it's more hygenic, especially as I'm in dusty Singapore. ( A tube might be messy as the cream is deliciously soft) Overall, the best facial moisturizer I've tried and it's a steal at S$39.00. I've had far less effective moisturizers at the same price or more, though I have to say that the jar is a little smallish... But anyways, kudos to Korres for having developed this great, great product. :) Now I just have to see if this does as well when I'm in California. *cross my fingers...*

This is perfect for skin which breaks out as it does not aggravate that. Great moisturizer which lasts and does not irritate.
