NEW Korres Pomegranate AHAS & Enzymes Resurfacing Mask: The Superfood Mask For Poreless Glowing Skin Review

Sponsored: I was sent a full-size sample of the NEW Korres Pomegranate AHAs & Enzymes Resurfacing Mask ($34) to review. Korres is a brand that has been on my Sephora wish list for awhile, so I was happy to receive a sample. The first thing I noticed on the package, was that this mask is for Oily-Combination Skin. You guys know I have Dry Skin, but I still wanted to try it. I'm adventurous like that! HaHaHa I also had my mom test it out on her Normal Skin (she use to have Combination Skin). Some background information ... this mask has 27.5% (AHAs/BHAs), Pomegranate grains to exfoliate the skin, glycolic acid and enzymes to peel away dead skin cells, white clay & white willow bark extract, which are rich in salicylic acid to remove excess sebum and refine pores. This mask exfoliates skin 3 ways: mechanical, chemical and enzymatic. The goals of the mask are to balance excess sebum, minimize the appearance of pores and improve skin texture. The mask has a fruit scent. That didn't surprise me, because it is a Pomegranate mask. The mask is dispensed from a tube and is brown in color. Right away, you detect a number of granules. You automatically know the mask's purpose is to exfoliate. When I applied this mask to my face, I found it to spread thin (not as thick as it comes out of the tube). The first time I applied this mask, I experienced a tingle to my skin (it didn't hurt ... I left it on 3-5 minutes as recommended ... this was the only time it tingled ... i've tried it numerous times since and it did not tingle at all); all the times I tried this mask my skin NEVER became irritated ... nor did it turn red. I used this mask for three weeks. Two times each week. This mask washed away cleanly and left my skin soft (shockingly, not dry). I initially expected this mask to be too much for my dry skin, but it wasn't. To me this is a really good exfoliating scrub. If it worked for my dry/sensitive skin, I know other skin types will love it. My favorite products to resurface with are 1. Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Ultra Gentle Daily Peel 2. Murad Skin Smoothing Polish  and 3. Murad Intensive C Radiance Peel Those are some options I've tested, that work really well for dry/sensitive skin types. My mom LOVED this Korres mask! She kept saying how soft her skin felt. She loved the granules in it! She gave it a thumbs up. The Korres Pomegranate Collection also has a Moisturizing & Balancing Cream Gel, Cleansing & Makeup Removing Wipes, Eye Makeup Removal Lotion, Toner, Mattifying Primer and Lip Butter. I received and tried some deluxe samples of other Korres skincare products, so I will let you guys know my thoughts on those tomorrow.

Sounds amazing. I have been using Korres for ages, some really great and some not that amazing for my skin, I am currently using the Rose oil and it's incredible!

It sounds like an awesome mask Kim! And it's great it didn't irritate or react with your skin - I've got combination skin but it's also sensitive so this sounds like a great product to give results without hurting my skin! :)

Hope you are having a nice start to the week so far and you had a lovely weekend :) Thanks for all your sweet comments on my blog too. I know you are busy so I always smile when I see you took time to read through some of my posts :)

Never tried anything from Korres, Kim, but this Pomegranate line sounds great:) I have combo skin, and have been on a search for AHA/BHA mask that won't break me out. Thanks for the heads up:D
Have a lovely day ahead, my friend:)

I have never tried a Korres product I didn't like, and yet for some reason, I often forget about the brand when I am shopping for skincare products. You've reminded me of how fabulous they are, Kim, and I will definitely be picking up a few things on my next trip to Sephora.

Good to know that your sensitive skin didn't react to this mask, Kim! Korres is sold in Shoppers Drugmart in Canada and I don't think they are available in Sephora but will check.

This mask sounds lovely Kim! I'm glad to hear that it was actually gentle enough for your dry skin and you didn't experience any type of irritation at all.

Jenny @ Geeky Posh said...

This sounds like a lovely exfoliating mask, and that's great that it didn't irritate your skin! Korres is a brand I've always been curious about but never really knew what to try from them, so it's good to know that I now have at least one option!

I used to have dry skin but now they say its combination skin. Glad to hear it worked out. I'm already loving the brand just for their full size pr sample.

Well this looks like a winner for my dry/sensitive skin too. I actually need a new scrub, one that is going to really do a good job.
