Korres Pomegranate Tonic Lotion for Oily to Combination Skin

Korres Pomegranate Tonic Lotion
Greek skincare brand Korres has marked its 15th anniversary with the launch of Pomegranate Tonic Lotion designed specially for oily and combination skin

What the Company Claims
Pomegranate regulating lotion tones, cleanses gently and removes excess oil, imparting a smother and more matte finish to the skin.

Organic pomegranate extract, rich in tannins and polyphenols, tightens the pores and rejuvenates the skin.
Alpine Willowherb regulates sebum production and offers a matte finish, while astringent Hamamelis extract soothes and conditions the skin.
Due to its mild exfoliating action, salicylic acid clears clogged pores, minimising the number of skin breakouts and preventing the formation of new ones.

-15% Pomegranate Water and Pomegranate Extract: Provides powerful anti-oxidants rich in tannins, polyphenols, and vitamins A, C & E to help refine the appearance of pores and rejuvenate the look of skin.
-10% Witch Hazel Water and Alpine Willowherb Extracts: Provides natural astringent properties that help to refine the appearance of pores, and provide a matte finish to skin.
-Salicylic Acid: Provides skin conditioning properties.

Apply with cotton pads to the face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Use morning and evening after cleansing.



Price- 14 pounds (Around INR 1120)

Quantity- 200ml


The tonic lotion/toner comes in a long, purple coloured plastic bottle with a flip cap. The packaging is sturdy, neat and is also leak proof (I have tested it on my travel too)



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.

      i think Korres has some thyme and honey range for dry skin,, usmei hona toh chahiye toner.. not sure.. let me check O:) O:)

    1. 😀 ife, i got it initially to use only, but i used it a few times and developed bad rashes :((
      a few days later I learnt Aloe vera shud not be used direct from the plant as it contains 70%bacteria and needs to be treated before using 😐 😐 i know som girls do use it directly from the plant and I am not against it, but i dont use it now :((

      1. actually me also got rashes..only later came to know that there is some reddish gel vascular area which should be removed..otherwise the sap will cause rashes..but i used to infuse in oil and use.. don’t have plant now.. 🙂

      2. Rashes…Oh is it?? Good to know Nupur….thankoo for sharing :teddy: :teddy: :teddy: And I’m so tempted to try this tonic lotion :woot: :woot: :woot: but mine is normal skin…

  7. I so wish Korres (and Origins) products were available in India. I’ve been wanting the Guava Body Butter for the longest time.
