The Korres pomegranate line caters to normal/combination skin types. Therefore, this is a lightweight cream-gel. If you have normal to dry skin I’d say to take a look at the Korres Wilde Rose Cream. I wanted to try this one based on the ingredients. The main active ingredient in this one is pomegranate which we all know is a super fruit; high in antioxidants and rich in Vitamins A, C & E. It combines that with pro-vitamin B5, avocado, and salicylic acid. All of these things are great for keeping the skin young but have also proved to be great for acneic skin types.
EDIT 2018: This moisturizer has since this review changed appearance, it now comes in a pink jar. It used to be called “Pomegranate Moisturising Cream-Gel”. The formula is the same though.
It’s 82.3% natural, without any parabens, mineral oil, silicones, and such. It has a very nice but light scent, which I like. As the name suggests, it has the consistency of a gel and cream. Applying it, at first you will think it’s a bit greasy, but wait a minute or two for it to sink in. After a while, it will leave a matte and hydrated face that will somewhat last all day long. But if you have very oily skin I would recommend another cream.
I always prefer a pump, but sure glass jars, especially purple ones, feel somewhat luxurious, and I kind of like it. The thing that pulls me to Korres isn’t just that they try to make products above 50% natural, but their aesthetics. As a graphic designer, I judge the book by its cover and when I look at this jar I feel as if it will add to my bathroom decor. Yes, I’m that ridiculous, but I think we all do it in some way. So even if it’s not a pump, I love the purple glass and the rubber cap, together with the typography of the text. It just feels clean and simple, and that’s how I want all of my beauty products to look.
I don’t really have a go-to/favorite moisturizer for the moment, I’ve tried lots of them but I can’t seem to feel that wow factor as some get. And the Korres Pomegranate moisturizer is no different. As for moisturizer, I would say it’s doing its job in what it promises, and that’s always a thumbs-up. I like that it mattifies my face without drying it, and because of that I think it’s a good moisturizer even during the winter months for combination skin. All-in-all I think it’s a good one, I do not regret my buy. My only wish would be for it to have at least SPF25 and come in a pump; that would probably qualify it to become my go-to moisturizer.
