"A breathable, oil-absorbing treatment that minimizes the look of pores and redness while giving skin a smooth, matte finish that lasts throughout the day."
The pomegranate mattifying treatment ($38) is a light-weight treatment that claims to treat enlarged pores, redness and improve skin's surface overall. It is formulated to be used as a primer, over moisturizer or alone. The texture is similar to that of a gel like primer and I use a small amount after moisturizer. It vanishes almost immediately, without leaving a film and creates a super smooth canvas, minimizing pores. If you have dry skin, I would recommend using it over moisturizer since it has oil absorbing properties. If you have oily skin, you could use this in place of a moisturizer and skip primer too. It is very lightweight and holds makeup in place and keeps me looking fresh for a very long time. Even the creamiest of blushes stay put.
Korres also has a pomegranate mattifying primer which works on a similar concept except that this truly leaves a matte finish and claims to work with treating treat redness and pores. I do have very visible, quite large pores and I cannot say it treated them or made them disappear but, for a silicone-free base, this does a fabulous job shrinking them prior to makeup application. I do prefer a dewy look when I'm done with my makeup but, a clean canvas with a matte finish as a base helps makeup glide on so easily. I've had great luck with Korres' skin care range in the past and this one too is a winner for me. I would reach out to this more during summer and since it is pricey, I would save it for use during special occasions when I want my makeup to look fresh and neat for hours together. It also has a mild rose scent that I absolutely love.
