Qwic-Pic: Korres Pomegranate Cleansing Scrub


Apr16

Hello!

I was fortunate to receive a love package packed with Korres products and some Aptivita samples a while ago from a dear reader/friend, Dafne who lives in Greece. Among the goodies was this Korres Pomegranate Cleansing Scrub which I recently tried and fell in love with - I'm contemplating the full-sized version!

UPDATE: I checked out the store and found out that THIS IS THE FULL-SIZE - 16ml which retails for SGD$18


The deluxe-sized products or gift sets (at least the ones I received) come in little foil-ziploc packages as pictured above which make the skincare range really handy for travelling or staycations.

 


The Pomegranate Cleansing Scrub is under the Korres Face range and has complementing products such as Pomegranate Wipes and a Pomegranate Mask. The Pomegranate range is meant for oily to combination skin.

I love the scrub because it is a great scrubby scrub but instead of walnut shells or apricot kernels which can scratch your skin, the Korres Pomegranate Cleansing Scrub uses olive stones (the pits from the olives) as the polishing agent. The Olive stones are said to refine pores, help eliminate dark spots and removes excess sebum.


It's not so harsh that you feel it scratching your skin but it really cleans off the grime and dust.

Other star ingredients include Pomegranate which is rich in tannins and helps to reduce pore size and rejuvenate skin - I understand this to be refining skin. It also contains Olive and Calendula extracts which are high in anti-oxidants. Here is the ingredients list:


The Korres Pomegranate Cleansing Scrub has a strong almond-cherry scent when I apply it to my skin - however, once I rinse it off, it smells more like a floral cherry scent.

Another thing I notice about the scrub is that when I'm scrubbing my skin with it, it seems to have a lot of slip and feels a little moisturising; this heavy moisturising feeling remains after I rinse off but once I pat my skin dry, skin feels very smooth and clean but not taut.

 

Overall, its a very effective cleansing scrub and I much prefer this over the Jack Black Face Buff Energizing Scrub which was one of the best scrubby-scrubs for face that I've tried. My other go-to face scrub is the Vichy Normaderm Scrub which I've re-purchased many times and the "special" scrub I like the Clarins Gentle Brightening Exfoliator.

 

UPDATE: So I was a little taken aback that this tiny tube of 16ml was the full-size version - 15ml or so is fine for an eye cream or serum but for such a great scrub, I wished it came in a larger tube since I'm inclined to use it generously and often. That said, I purchased another tube while at the store yesterday and will use it as a deep cleansing scrub only once a week. I've purchased another one, a Wild Rose daily brightening scrub which I will feature soon :)
