Review: Korres "Pomegranate Balancing Cream-Gel Moisturiser"

Hi everyone!
I'm super ready to review this moisturizer cause I really love this! It's like perfect for combination skin; perfect! I've had this since like mid-November and I'm almost halfway through! I remember first hearing about this in one of BubzBeauty's favorite videos, so I kept that in mind and finally went to go get it when I ran out of moisturizer! Well, follow up on the review!
Rating: 8.5 out of 10
Skin type: Any; great for combination!
Me: I use this only at night because I use my Benefit moisturizer with SPF in the morning, but you could and night if you'd like! The thing about this moisturizer, is that it's really good for combination! It moisturizes my dry areas (cheeks) and it slightly moisturizes my oily T-zone without making it super oily or sticky! I love how light weight is is, and the way it smells is heavenly! I'm really excited to try more Korres products :)
Repurchase: Yes! Unless I find something that's better for moisturizing at night, I'm definitely going to buy another one when I run out!
How-to: After washing your face, applying toner, apply this on! Try to just dip your finger into it once to prevent less contamination. 
Price: $32; not that expensive, but not cheap either. I would say it's pretty good for the price because it has lasted me for about 5 months or so?
Quality: It's a really really great moisturizer for combination skin because it moisturizes dry skin and doesn't make oily parts oilier. ** If you're dry-combination, this might be not enough moisture in the winter time.
Smell: It smells super nice! I really love the scent. It's super fresh and light. It smells like sweet pomegranate? I just really like the smell... makes me happy ^_^
Texture: Its not really a watery cream, but it's not super thick either... It's is more "water-like" though. You can't really tell about the "gel" aspect though, but it's very watery and it's like "cooling". It's super light because it sinks into your skin like immediately.
Packaging: The packaging is a thick glass jar. Not the most sanitary, but the color is really cool... haha!
Amount: 1.25 oz

Haul: Pink and Sparkles!

Haven't done a haul in a while :) Taking advantage of Ulta's 20% coupon and this is what I bought. I realized that like everything was a hue of pink, how funny! So far, I'm really happy with these purchases because they're so pretty! Let's get to the haul!

NYX Glitter Cream Palette - Bronze Goddess ($5.99)
~ I'm super surprised on how easy it is to use this! It gives such a festive touch to any look! The glitters may look big; but you cannot feel them on your eye at all! I really love the middle color; it's so pretty!
Revlon Color Burst Lip Butter - Peach Parfait ($7.49)
~ There were so many mixed reviews out there; but I eventually decided to get one because this color just really appealed to me. I really like this line because there are so many color selections! It may seem really moisturizing when you put it on; but on the long run, it does not moisturize your lips! The color on the other hand; is very pretty. This color is like the natural color of your lips with pretty shimmers. I really love the color and the packaging!

Revlon Polishes
Revlon Nail Enamel ($4.99)
- 474 Kiss Me Coral
~ This is such a bright color for me... I don't really like it; but I'll give it a try.
- 011 Sheer Rose
~ I LOVE this color! It's so pretty! Its like the perfect nude color for me because it's not all that 'brown' It's like perfect for the colder season! I love this color a lot!
- 007 Sheer Blossom
~ LOVE! It's such a pretty color as well! I actually have it on my nails right now :) It's like the perfect baby pink. I actually like how sheer it is because it looks very natural and cute. This polish does have some fine sparkles in it; it's so pretty.

Other Polishes
China Glaze 961 - 108 Degrees ($7.00)
~ Another really bright color, but I'll see how it looks....
Sally Hansen Diamond Strength - 230 Sweetie Pie ($3.99)
~ First things first, I love the packaging. It's like the prettiest packaging ever! The bottle itself has like cuts at the bottom so it looks like a gem. The color I thought i would really love; but there's something about it that didn't give me that 'wow' factor. It's still a really pretty creamy coral though!
OPI Nail Lacquer - Peach a Boo ($8.99)
~ I am in love with this color! This does have to go on top of another color, but it's so pretty! It's a very translucent color with peachy shimmers. The shimmers are also very iridescent; ranging from a peach to a pink color. I love wearing it under a light pink.  
ULTA Nail Lacquer - Glitter Top Coat ($7.50)
~ This glitter polish isn't one that's jammed packed with glitter, and surprisingly I really like it! It adds just a little sparkle to bling up any polish! The formula itself is not thick; which is good. The sparkles in this is also not too chunky!
Rimmel - Base Coat Top Coat Pro ($3.99)
~ Two in one! It's really easy to use because the applicator is very unique; it's like two applicators in one. Which makes sense because you want to do it fast! Sadly, it doesn't make the color of the polish super shinny like my other top coat; but that's okay because it does prevent chipping for a while!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a good day!
