About Korres Pomegranate Moisturising Cream
This natural Pomegranate extract moisturiser from the acclaimed Korres brand is lightweight, and absorbs into the skin rapidly leaving your face feeling fresh and rejuvenated. It is ideal for those with oily or combination skin types.
It contains Alpine Willowherb, a small and pretty flowering plant that only grows in peat bogs, which regulates sebum production. Sebum, which is a oily secretion of waxy matter from glands, creates a slightly sweaty shine on the skin. By lowering sebum production this moisturiser cleverly gives a matte, non-reflective finish to the skin.
A pH neutral formulation ensures that this moisturiser is not harsh on your face, and it also contains no mineral oil, paraffin wax, alcohol or animal by-products. It does contain natural extracts and is suitable for vegeratians and vegans.
Powerful skin hydration is delivered from a combination of hyaluronic and salicylic acids. This leaves the skin feeling silky smooth, and leaves you feeling great.
The moisturiser carries an element of sun protection too, blocking skin damaging UV rays to protect your face with a low but effective SPF rating designed for daily use.
Pomegranate Fruit Extract
Why Pomegranate? Well, Pomegranate is somewhat of a super-food and has been used for medicinal purposes back through the ages. It is used to treat high blood pressure, to strengthen bones and may even combat some cancers.
It is a great source of fibre, minerals and vitamins (notably A, C and E). All very good and well, but how does all this help when rubbing it on your face you might ask?
The answer is three-fold, and intriguing. The organic Pomegranate is rich in tannins and polyphenols. Astringent properties resulting from the high tannin levels cause a skin tightening effect. Tightening and strengthening the epidermis, along with sebum reduction, is an ideal combination for oily skin. Finally, Pomegranate also contains high levels of antioxidents, that are known to combat free radicals. Free radicals age the skin prematurely.
15% of the moisturiser content is Pomegranate extract and Willowherb, which combine cleverly to improve your skin.
The Korres Brand
The Korres brand is of Greek origin, it's story starting with The Tzivanides Pharmacy in Athens which was set up in the 1960's. The founder employed a bright young Pharmacology undergraduate named George Korres.
George was initially sceptical about homeopathic medicine, but quickly realised that the science behind the use of natural ingredients was valid, and he was amongst the first to recognise the potential and benefits of a more natural skincare product line-up.
Later entrusted with the management of the pharmacy, and with a passion for understanding herbal properties, George set about developing his own range of natural products. In the early days these were tested on understanding, and no doubt long suffering friends as he developed his repertoire of knowledge about thousands of herbal treatments.
Today, the Korres brand is a global success, and continues to develop new and innovative natural skin care products such as this Pomegranate extract moisturiser cream.

Wash your face thoroughly, and dry it with a clean towel. Apply the moisturiser to your face and neck, rubbing it in and avoiding getting any in your eyes.
The lightweight moisturiser will be absorbed into your skin quickly.

I love Korres products and this is one of my favourites, which I have been using for a couple of years now. It's really light, not at all greasy but still keeps my skin soft and moisturised. The fragrance is lovely and really light, which I think is perfect for a face cream. Also, it's all natural ingredients without common compounds that can clog pores and irritate skin. I would recommend this as a perfect daily moisuriser for balancing combination skin with the added benefit of no skin suffoca
I love the Korres Wild Rose 24-hour Moisturiser & Brightening Cream so wanted to try a slightly 'heavier' cream for the winter. This is definitely heavier than my former cream, but has helped me deal with the outdoor / indoor skin drying issues I've suffered from in the past. Occasionally feels a little too heavy and greasy for me as I have combination skin which turns quite oily during the month, so I will return to my Wild Rose choice for the spring.
