I have had hormonal acne flare up since turning 30. I use this product on my cheeks and jaw line as I get congested little bumps with occational cysts and it clears and smoothes my skin. Love it. One of my staples. Bought in Europe, so hope to find it somewhere in Canada.

The finish on this powder is really nice, and I used it for medium coverage. However, the smell does not agree with me, a powdery lady smell that really bothers me. A scent free version is supposed to exist, however the lady at the cosmetic counter did not inform me of this. The powder also will pick up dry spots and really show them. Although I like the initial coverage, a few days in a row of wearing this I get clogged pores and bumpy skin on my cheeks and jaw. This was a really expensive product in Canada, and I will not repurchase. I expect more for the price.
I'm not sure if the previous reviewer looked up this Korres powder correctly on Skin Deep, as it is not listed there. Not only that, but Korres does not have ANY products that are rated at 8/10 on the danger scale. Also, silica that is listed as an individual ingrediant in Korres products receives a 1/10 on the danger scale. From the Skin Deep website www.cosmeticsdatabase.com: "About SILICA: Silica is the most common constituent of sand. Fine silica, typically used in industrial applications and inhaled by workers, is associated with a wide range of disorders. In cosmetics for skin use, regular sand presents little, if any risk to people. Because the particles might be finely ground down for use in a product that might be inhaled (such as a facial powder), the inhalation scores reflect the underlying data." Now onto my review: I'm neutral toned and the range does run more on the yellow side, however, I found the colors blended into my skin tone perfectly. Would not recommended for pink undertones.This provides light to medium coverage, and looks very natural. Takes shine away when pressed in with the sponge, and then I touch up later in the day with a brush. Many products tend to clog my pores and this powder doesn't. I love it. I use concealer on my brown spots, under eyes, around nose, and finish of with this powder and q quick hit of blush and I'm set. I didn't think I would be able to pull off the powder look since my early-mid twenties, and can with this silky powder. I like how the sponge is seperated in the compact, but the compact itself is bulky. Will buy again!

Terrible! I ordered from this company nearly 2 months ago, and have not received my product. Only general bounce back emails when I send an inquiry. I am out $35 - do not order from this company! I have initiated a dispute with Paypal. We'll see what happens, but this really makes me angry.
This mascara does wonders for me. It gives me thick volumous lashes. They look longer too! Only if I rub my eyes, then it smudges and gets a little flaky. But I shouldn't be rubbing my eyes anyways. A bonus for me is that it doesn't irritate my eyes like so many other mascaras do. I like the big fat brush but I think that it may dry out in the tube quickly.

This product went on smooth and initially made my skin feel silky. But it really clogs my pores. If I put this on in the morning, I have lot's og blackheads and clogged pores by the end of the day. I've been still trying to use it only on my sun spots (just to use it up) but it doesn't seem to do anything.

I LOVE this product. My skin has been changing since I turned 31. It's dehydrated, gets oiler longer into the day, looks dull, and I am getting age spots, along with hormonal acne. The first time I used this product, I didn't like it. I used it before bed, and took my time applying it. The more I rubbed it in, it started to peel off my face. It also has a floral smell that I'm not the biggest fan of. A few weeks later I decided to dry it again. This time I applied it just after washing, and didn't rub it into my skin to much where it would peel. It seemed to absorb into my skin. The next morning my skin was calm and smooth, redness was down. It seems to calm down my acne too. My skin has been looking so much better since using this.

I thought this would be good as a basic clean spf moisturizer. But... there is something in this that just chokes my pores. My pores are always clogged by the end of the day with this moisturizer and I get little bumps. I used about 1/3 of the bottle then threw it out.

This is my must have moisturizer/SPF combo. Everything else I have tried from department store to drug store clogs my pores. It is light, goes on very easily and smooth and it is oil free. Because I am acne prone I don't really like the jar (which is why I give it a 4 rating and not a 5), but I love the lightness of this product and it does not clog my pores.

I love this moisturizer. I have sensitive skin with hormonal acne flare ups, and my pores clog very easily. Some parts of my face are very oily, and some parts are dehydreated. This moistuzier feels like it soothes my skin. My skin feels balanced and soft and best of all, my pores are never clogged. I only wish there was an SPF available for this product.
