My Experience with the Korres Pomegranate Tonic Lotion
So I was more than satisfied with my Clinique Clarifying lotion 3 (https://makeupandbeauty.com/clinique-clarifying-lotion-3-review/) as the second toning step in my skin care regime but when I finished up the bottle, I felt like trying up something else. After going through tons of reviews on toners for combination-oily skin I purchased this korres pomegranate tonic lotion and I am so glad I did.
The Korres tonic lotion has pleasant, slight fruity fragrance which I like while applying it on. I find the formula to be mild, gentle on my skin even though it contains alcohol.
The toner instantly refreshes my skin along with making it soft and supple. I guess, that s the reason they have named it a “tonic lotion” and not just a toner. It slightly hydrates the skin, like nothing which makes the face greasy but just very little amount of hydration. I find this toner to be perfect for my winter combination skin. I am still using it, but I doubt if it will suit me well in summers when my skin is oilier.
The tonic lotion also does good amount of deep cleaning. I notice it gives a healthy, clean skin appearance whenever I swipe this on my face. There are times when I use it after using a face wash and I can still see some amount of dirt coming out on the cotton swab when I use this.
On immediate application, I do see a reduction in pore size and my pores do look better from what they used to be, since the time I have been using it.
Like most korres products, the toner is free from mineral oil, parabens, silicones, SLES,, synthetic dyes etc which makes me like this toner although more.
Overall, I am super impressed and satisfied with this korres pomegranate tonic lotion. I have been using it since November (so 5 months now) and I am about half way with the bottle. I will definitely repurchase and recommend it for combination to oily skinned beauties.
