Many readers write in with their oily/combination skin issues. Although that is not my own skin type, I thought, wow, I’m really not being fair when I am only reviewing products for my own skin type! Well say no more, my oily/combo friends… I know you want skincare that’s mattifying, purifying and natural. Am I right? And of course, who knows super luxe natural formulas better than Korres…
Korres’ Pomegranate line relies predominantly on their key ingredient, pomegranate (obviously!), to reduce surface oils and shine. Pomegranate also contains a wealth of vitamins and antioxidants. In fact, its antioxidant powers amount to 3x that of red wine and green tea! Let’s take a closer look at 3 of their products from their pomegranate line…
Pomegranate Purifying Natural Clay Mask – I’m always obsessed with a great clay mask – and I highly recommend it for those who have overactive oil glands. The natural clay mask gently draws out impurities while the zinc absorbs excess oil. The beautiful white clay feels oh-so-amazing on skin and after just 10 minutes, my skin instantly looked perfectly matte and more radiant. 1.35 fl. oz. / 40 ml, $44
Pomegranate Mattifying Treatment – Many of my oily skin friends complain about the look of large pores. Wish there was some way to shrink them? This light cream-gel texture immediately sinks into skin and instantly mattifies complexions. The scent is positively addicting. If you’re combination, just apply to the areas where you are oily (i.e. T-zone). 1.35 fl oz/ 40 ml, $49
Pomegranate Toner – Made with pomegranate water, this clarifying toner is meant to clear the skin of excess dirt, debris, oils and dead skin cells that have accumulated throughout the day or night. It contains witch hazel and Alpine Willowherb extracts which are natural astringents to help reduce the appearance of pores and to create an instantly matte finish. The best part – you’re getting a generous amount of toner (the bottle holds 200 ml!). It will definitely last you quite some time! 6.76 fl. oz / 200 ml, $26
