Solid moisturizer that I won't repurchase because I didn't love it enough. I have fairly dry skin, and I feel that other moisturizers did a better job in making my skin feel comfortable. It does have a pleasant smell and nice consistency. Used a sample size of this when I was traveling, which it was nice for.Pro:- nice smell- nice consistency- cute packaging (nicer than the picture above that shows the old version)- effect is goodCon:- wanted more of a wow-effect for the pricetag of this cream

This stuff was the exact opposite of what was advertised in my experience. It felt a bit thick and seemed to just sit on top of my skin, never absorbing. It made my oily skin oilier when it claimed to mattify. I also didn't like the scent or the jar packaging. Yikes.

This is a great moisturizer in the warmer months for those that have oily, sensitive skin that is prone to breakouts. It's a gel cream hybrid that is very lightweight and absorbs into the skin wonderfully. It's never broken me out or made my combo skin feel greasy. It's moisturizing capabilities are on the light side, so those with dry skin might not find it moisturizes enough to be helpful. Very little is needed, which makes the jar last longer, which makes it a worthwhile investment. I ordered this online after reading so many great reviews, and it ended up shipping from Greece (I honestly don't know how that happened). I ended up paying $40 and waiting longer. Natch. I think it typically runs for $32. I've had mine for close to a year now, and because I don't use it all the time, I still have quite a bit left....about a quarter, and it still doesn't expire until 2017. Since it's still ridiculously hot and humid in CA, I've been using it more often. I've been alternating this Korres moisturizer with the Neutrogena Naturals Multi-vitamin Nourishing Moisturizer, and have had good results. I find the combination of the two beneficial in keeping my oily areas more balanced.It's pretty refreshing as moisturizers go, especially if refrigerated like mine is. The scent is subtle and dissipates, but doesn't smell artificial or overbearing. Leaves skin feeling refreshed, calm, plump, and soft. I'd give this moisturizer about 10-15 mins to fully absorb before applying makeup (which it does well under).If you have sensitive, oily skin that is prone to breakouts, and you only need a light moisturizer, this is definitely a good option and I'd definitely recommend it. Remember though, a little goes a long way.

This is my HQ day moisturizer. I use the Wild Rose and Vitamin C Brightening Sleeping Facial at night as well. This day moisturizer is amazing. I use it on top of a serum and it absorbs nicely into my skin. I've always had a problem finding moisturizers for my face because they always make me feel greasy or they break me out. This makes my feel feel incredibly soft and I feel this helped with my skin quality (meaning I had a breakout problem from a Vichy moisturizer I was using, which I no longer have, completely cleared up) and the redness in my cheeks are reduced. I don't know what I'd do without this line. I switched my whole entire skin routine over to this line. Shower gel, moisturizers, eye cream, body butter, everything.

This product is HG for me. It suits my skin type perfectly. My skin is normal/combination. I have a somewhat oily t-zone and the area around my mouth gets a bit dry around the time I get my period, or if the weather gets super cold. This moisturizing cream has a cool, gel-like texture, is definitely not greasy, absorbs easily and adds just the right amount of moisture to my skin leaving it soft and smooth. No break-outs either. Makes a great base for my make up whether I wear BB cream or foundation. I think this product will mostly suit people with young skin that don't suffer from intense skin problems. Not that this will be bad for you but I feel like it won't be enough. Plus, what is very important for me is that it's made of natural products and contains a lot of natural extracts and ingredients. I'm quite apprehensive about what I put on my face. UPDATE: After using it for a long time, it just didn't work anymore. My skin has become more normal than oily and this moisturizer doesn't do enough. I still think though that oily skin types will love this.

Definitely not worth the money for me. Don't understand why this is so hyped about here. Only positive thing is it has a nice, fake fruity scent. My mild acne on my forehead remained unchanged and it didn't do anything for my skin. I was hoping that it would soothe and relieve some of my flaky patches. Only has a mild moisture content, nothing special and definitely not worth $45.

I really like this moisturizer, it is nice and light. It smells great and it balances my skin. Its not a heavy moisturizer so I would not recommend it if your skin is super dry. I wish it was a pump and not a jar.

Definitely not worth $32! Sephora Skin IQ recommend this product for my oily, sensitive skin. It was supposed to relieve redness, provide acne treatment and mattify. The only positive thing I can say about this product is that it is very light gel cream feels great going on and does dry to a soft natural matte finish. It get one lippie for that. The rest of my review, however, won't be nearly as generous. First of all, this come in a jar. So all the active ingredients like the anti-oxidants and Salicylic Acid are wasted once the product starts becoming exposed to air. But it wouldn't matter anyway because the PH of this product is not correct to cause the exfoliation that the salicylic acid is supposed to provide.On the ingredient list, fragrance is listed before the acid anyway so that is definitely a no-no for sensitive skin and will CAUSE redness, not eliminate it! Which is exactly was happened after using this product. It felt great going on but my cheeks became and not calmed by using this product after 3 days. The scent is quite nice... for a body spray:/I do like pomegranate but I don't see why they couldn't have omitted the fragrance. The anti-oxidant toner I use everyday does contain that was well as other plant based extracts but it is unscented! Thankfully, the Sephora SA gave me a generous sample and I did not waste my hard earned money on this.This didn't cause me to breakout, but it didn't help with the few pimples I do have and it definitely didn't do anything to calm redness. Instead, it made it a little worse because of the fragrance. If you have dry skin, this won't be enough to moisturize you. If you have oily or normal skin, this is just an overpriced product that will lightly moisturize and leave a soft matte finish for makeup. But so do a lot of other products out there that come in better packaging for a lower price that have ingredients that can actually work. Just a random side note: This didn't factor in my review (since everyone has their own opinion on the subject and makes purchasing decisions accordingly), but I find it odd that companies who claim to be "natural" test on animals. Most people who are inclined to buy natural/green beauty products are also opposed to animal testing.

i love this stuff! first things first i have very oily skin (and this is targetted for oily skin) and its perfect for my skin type. its lightweight, moisturizes, works great under makeup, & no fragrance. you really dont need a lot, a little goes a long way. its $32 which is pricey for the amount you get (1 oz) and the packaging is TERRIBLE! i really hate jar moisturizers. not only is it not very sanitary but it means you run out faster. the packaging is the only thing i can complain about, other than that this my holy grail. please check this out if you have oily skin!

I don't actively dislike this moisturizer, but I don't love it. I have combination skin (normal to dry cheeks depending on season, oily t-zone). I think that this moisturizer does do a great job at moisturizing my skin and deals well with both dry and oily skin. However, it just does not feel that good going on my skin. I really like to clean my face well and I always get that "tight" feeling on my skin right after I cleanse. Even though I can tell that this moisturizer does a good job hydrating my skin (no more flakes!), it just does not really alleviate that tight feeling in the same way other light moisturizers have done for me. I also love really light feeling moisturizers and I do think that this one fits in that category, but I much prefer the texture of Shiseido Pureness Moisturizing Gel Cream, which I think is a really similar product at a similar price point ($32 for 1.25oz for the Korres vs $33.50 for 1.4oz for the Shiseido). Edit: I'm adding one lippy. I started using this in conjunction with a serum (Caudalie vinoperfect) about two months ago, really soon after the above review. This moisturizer has the absolute perfect amount of moisture and the consistency is great for over a serum. And my face feels great afterwards, fully moisturized and not tight, but not heavy.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
