I have a sample of this and have given it a try because my skin is dry and sensitive from Accutane.
PROS: Leaves less of a shine than many other moisturizers (but still slight). Smells absolutely wonderful (like roses). Hasn't caused breakouts (although Accutane may be more responsible for that!) Moisturizes well all day long.
CONS: SPF is rather low. Can cause a whitish cast that must be rubbed in if you use too much. Very expensive ($32.50 for 1.4 fl oz.)
Overall, a nice product. I'm on the fence about purchasing because it's so expensive and so low SPF so will probably try something new instead. Also, just a warning to combo/oily skinned gals--I would not recommend this for you.

I tried this product as part of the Korres rose skin care starter set. This was a heavy moisturizer and I would not recommend to anyone with oily skin. Having combo to dry skin as I do, I found this to be very moisturizing and gentle. Unfortunately, I tried this in Spring and found that although I liked it, it would be a much better winter product.
The sample came in a squeeze tube, I beleive the full size is a jar. In general I prefer tubes to jars because of the cleanliness factor.

I've used this product for about a year now, and am very pleased with it. I use Retin-A and it leaves my skin very dry. The consistency of this Korres cream is thick enough to moisturize my dry skin. I don't rely on the SPF to protect my skin even in the winter because it's only SPF 6, and not broad-spectrum. But as a moisturizing cream, I like the product a lot. The smell is also lovely.

This is one of my HG moisturizer!!! I got it about 6 months ago and wow do I see a difference in my skin. This cured my dry skin during the winter months instantly. I love this stuff because it not only moisturizes well but it doesn't feel heavy like some other creams do. It also didn't break me out and I have pretty sensitive skin. I still wear it from time to time when I feel my skin feels a little tight/dry. Would definitely purchase again.

I first received this as a sample from Sephora. At that time I did not have a moisturizer at all, especially since every single one that I ever tried irritated my sensitive skin. I thought I would give it a shot, since it was more "natural" than other brands. It was heaven sent at the time because my skin was a wreck; dry, peeling, irritated, uneven. The texture is not runny but not very thick either. It has a nice lovely scent that other products from the line have. It does not feel greasy, but is quite moisturizing. My skin feels so different when I wear it, as if it were more supple and elastic. I have not found a moisturizer to replace it, although I am looking because this product is a bit pricey. I believe $32 or so, for a small amount. I know moisturizers are expensive, but I still do not love all of the ingredients in the cream, so I am not willing to pay that much unless I do not find something as good. I guess I forgot to mention that I went "green" with my makeup and try to go as natural as possible AND reduce my exposure to toxic ingredients that are found in "natural" products too. BUT I love what this moisturizer does to my skin.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Brown Eyes: Blue
I think this is a great moisturizer. I actually use it as a night cream. I have combination acne prone skin. It gets rid of all my dry skin without causing me to get super oily or breakout in the "problem" areas. I don't care for the smell but it goes away quickly.

This along with the Wild Rose Serum are now my HG! I was skeptical when I saw the before and after pictures of the women who used the product but it has made that much of a change in my skin. I got it at Sephora and the SA also raved about it. Personally, I think my skin reacts well to rose based products. My complexion has evened out and is much brighter.
That being said, I don't think I will use this during the summer because the cream and serum are extremely thick. They tend to sit on top of your skin and don't really get absorbed. For this reason, it may not suit those with oily skin.

It is a nice thick moisturizing cream. A heaven send for me in winter & year-round in the very arid climate I live in.
I took off for the packaging--a tiny pot which will inevitable be filled with finger goo and become contaminated. However, the small jar lasts only 1-2 mo for me.
Also it's rather pricey, but I've yet to find a cheaper alternative.

When I tried the wild rose mask it was wonderful, lightened my acne scars and made my face glow. So off I go to purchase the trial size wild rose line, my face broke out in ugly white heads, I now have a collection on my chin, my forehead, the side of my head and along my jawline. OMG I haven't broken out like this in months!! A week ago I had clear smooth skin now I look like I have volcanoes on my face.

The review below is based on my findings after using this product consistently for well over a month. I could tell that this moisturizer wasn't for me pretty quickly but I decided to stick it out primarily because it was all that I had and it wasn't so horrible that I couldn't handle it for the duration until I found something else more suitable for me. Hope this helps!
Consistency - This moisturizer is very creamy and thick so it did a great job at smoothing out the few areas where I tend to be dry - like the sides of my nose and above my chin. I could absolutely see this product working very well for people with extremely dry skin. Also, the 24 hr claim is definitely true which is totally an added benefit!
Consistency: As mentioned before, this product is very creamy and thick - so much so that I never felt like it truly sank into my combo skin. Although it didn't exactly turn my face into a total grease slick, I was left with a very unpleasant film of stickiness. Also, upon application, my skin would get a bit aggitated and red, thankfully it would calm down pretty quickly. Overall I would totally not recommend to anybody who doesn't have dry skin.
Packaging: Comes in a small glass jar which most people will agree that they do not like for hygenic and convenience purposes. What makes this product's packaging even worse is the fact that the cream is so thick it makes it kind of hard to scoop out a small amount at a time - at least that was the case for me. To combat this issue I would use one of those tiny plastic measuring spoons.
Price: $32.50 for 1.4 oz. Now, I really didn't want to add the price into the con list because if this product works for you then the cost is totally justifiable. However, I can't help but feel like you really don't get that much quantity for what you pay for.
Scent: Normally I am not too picky with scents and I happen to love the smell of roses, however, this scent is way too overpowering for my liking. To be quite honest it doesn't even smell like roses to me. If I had to absolutely describe it, it would be more along the lines of those very potent spicy Thanksgiving/Christmas candles.
In the end I definitely wouldn't classify this as a horrible moisturizer but again, I feel like it should be targeted for people with dry skin only.

I really like this cream. First off, let me say that I normally CANNOT stand anything flower-scented. I don't love the scent of this, but it does not bother me at all. The cream is light and moisturizing. Since using this, I have had no new breakouts. I went through a period where I was breaking out quite frequently and I'm not sure what the cause of it was, but I'm glad that this definitely doesn't contribute. I took off 1 lippie for the low SPF. I don't like to sleep with SPF products on my face, but SPF 6 is a joke to wear during the day.

Korres Wild Rose mositurizer is such a bust
It does absoulutely nothing that it claims
It does brighten, whiten and blah blah
this company just keeps advertising this and it actually makes your eyes sting! Bad sting!!

I actually went through a jar of this some years ago, and when I ran out I headed straight for the pharmacy in order to repurchase. I ended up not doing so, because an aesthetician that worked there pointed out that it was too heavy for my (then very young) oily skin, and advised me to try the pomegranate one instead. However I will definitely get this again at some point, as it's one of the moisturizers I've enjoyed the most so far.
First of all, even though it's not supposed to be meant for oily skin, it didn't feel too heavy on. It has a pleasant, soft, rather light texture and it does a good job moisturizing and protecting skin. However what I honestly adore about this is the scent; it smells exactly like fresh roses. Seriously I find it divine; not strong enough to bother you, just mild, natural and absolutely heavenly.
The price is very reasonable and the packaging is simple and sleek as always when it comes to Korres, though some may not like the fact that it comes in a jar. A solution would be to use a small plastic or wooden spatula to extract it.
To sum things up, if you are looking for a simple moisturizer to perk up and protect your skin, I think this one definitely deserves a chance.

Truely smells like roses, not artificial rose-scented oil. Lightweight and non-mineral oil based. Refreshing change from heavy face creams and light enough to wear under makeup. Pleasantly surprised. Wish SPF was higher so I didn't have to wear an additional sunscreen. Also, whitening aspect is very minimal.

I bought this product in the sample wildrose kit two days ago and so far impressed!!! I have had a love/hate relationship with finding the right products for my aging, dull, sensitive, and dry skin. I asked a lady at Sephora, who had gorgeous and glowing skin what she used and this is what she recommended. Immediately I noticed my skin feels soft, smooth, and no dryness/flakiness in sight. My makeup sits well on top of the product and doesn't get all cakey or smudged. I LOVE the scent and have had no bad reactions/irritations. I can only give this product a four, as it has been only 2 days. I will definitely update my review in a few weeks, once I have given this product a proper chance. The kit by the way is a 5 piece trial system that I paid less then $50 for.
Day 7: My complexion is definitely moist, not oily moist, but plump and sooo soft. My make up feels and looks better on my skin. So far I'm impressed this 5 piece kit... except the white tea cleanser ( I threw that out, but continue to use the remaining 4). I use the serum, cream, and eye cream twice a day, and the mask every 2-3 days.
Day 14: Almost out of the product from the trial size tube. My skin continues to feel fantastic. Even when exposed to this lovely winter weather of minus 30!!! The product is moisturizing. I have not broken out or had any negative reactions to it, such as clogged pores.
update: I have finished the trial size tube of serum and moisturizer, both are great if you are looking for a good product that delivers moisture. Both absorbs well, hydrates, and permits easy makeup application over top. I never felt my skin appeared more brighter, nor radiant, nor firmer, or even less blotchy (my skin has redness). If you have dry/combo skin and want a all natural product that does nothing but delivers moisture, then this line of products is it. I personally am seeking more to slow down my signs of aging. Plus it only has an SPF of 6!!

I really love this for night cream. I have very sensitive and combination/dry skin and this feels very nice on but not greasy. I have to agree that the rose scent is horrid, but it fades so I am not nauseous. I also don't love the jar, it is a bit difficult to open at times. Overall, I really like this and would buy again.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
This is not one of my favorite products from Korres. It does really smell like rose if your not into that this is not your moisturizer . It works fine but what I dont like about it it makes my skin a bit red right away and after awhile of using this I tend to break out . Im not one to break out much . So I dont think I will be buying this one again .

I've tried this and liked it the first night despite tiny red bumps I got next to my mouth. It seemed like it was moisturizing well. Then the next two nights I tried it, I've noticed more bumps the next day and slight irritation. Plus my pores kind of looked large and my skin looked tired. This is what I get for being in denial of the fact that my skin and olive oil does not mix well. Oh well. I have a delux sample that's almost new and no one to give it to. bummers.

I got this cream in samples which is my preferred route for purchasing this product because the setup in sample form is actually the same amount in the jar form except it's in a squeeze tube. I use this cream mixed with a capful of Philosophy's vitamin C booster powder and my skin is recovering really quickly from my acne scars and residual outbreaks. I love this cream at night, in the daytime I use Aubrey Organics sea algae and green tea moisturizer for normal skin. I would use the Korres 24-hour moisturizer in the day time but I really try and conserve it.

I really like this. For christmas, my mother sent me a big bag of these samples. I have really oily skin, so at first I was skeptical about this product. But, since I was traveling and had no other small products to chuck into my single plastic bag, I decided that it really wouldn't be SO bad, and if it was I could always go out and buy my usual Olay. I WAS SO WRONG. This product was FANTASTIC. It actually seems to help my breakouts...maybe because it's so natural and free of mineral oils and other nasty things. I'm not sure, but I'll definitely be buying a full size. I've heard it comes in a glass jar. While I'm not a germ-freak and don't mind jars, I do think it looks pretty heavy and I travel A LOT! But the product is too great to NOT get, regardless of the jar!
