Korres skin care?

Has anyone tried Korres skin care products?

Now that the cold winter weather has arrived my skin is now peeling and flaking like crazy and I can't get it under control. My regular PSF products combat the oilyness (and I have had the oil situation somewhat under control for months now) but the HA/emu or HA/jojoba oil that normally work wonderfully in the summer/spring/fall is just not cutting it. Now my skin is oily but dry and flaky all at the same time....yuck....I look horrible! I wasn't prepared at all for this.

I was reading on another message board and someone mentioned Korres yogurt products for oily but dehydrated skin, which sounds like my situation. I went ahead and ordered on an impulse - but just wondering if any of you have tried or heard of these products?

Any other product suggestions to combat winter skin will be welcomed too.....

    Pond's regular cold cream (not the "light" kind) is non-comedogenic, and makes a great moisturizer for oily skin. Put it on, let it soak in for a minute, and wipe off the excess.

    Ok, I received my Korres yogurt products a couple of days ago. I bought the $45 yogurt kit that contains a sample size cleanser, eye creme, yogurt moisturizer and yogurt mask. I searched for a discount code before ordering and found one for 30% plus free shipping if ordering directly from their site so the price for this kit wasn't bad at all (and I also found that Korres normally has nice freebies and discount codes if you join their page on facebook).

    So far I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the yogurt mask. I cleansed with PSF green tea cleanser and then applied the mask and let it sit for at least 30 minutes. When I rinsed it off in the shower it felt like my skin was brand new. Moisturized and the flakes were gone - but at the same time no oiliness....just awesomeness.

    The yogurt creme is also really nice so out of the kit - unless I start getting some strange breakouts or something - I think at least two of the products are keepers for the winter months anyway.

    I ordered a sample of their primer recently, as their products are free of parabens, silicones, mineral oil, etc. I will update with what I think of it. If the line is as good as you say and as I find out, I might have to get some more things because I'm trying to get everything I use daily (such as their makeup) to be free of preservatives, chemicals, etc. :-)

    I purchased a couple of Korres products back in early January after reading some great reviews. I purchased the Wild Rose moisturizer and the Honey Thyme moisturizer and really like both of them equally well. I use them on my face, neck and chest. The Wild Rose had a light scent while the Honey Thyme had a stronger scent which smelled divine. I have oily to combo skin to sometimes dry in areas and both products provided just the right amount of moisture without leaving me oily. I would definitely repurchase these products and look forward to trying more Korres products in the future.

    The thing I like about Korres body lotions is the powdery trace they leave on the skin. So far I have tried Vanilla Cinnamon and Cedar body lotions. They smell nice, although I think the almond body lotion smells better.

    I have also tried the pomegrenate facial gel-moisturizer for oily/combo skin. It was a little bit heavy for my face, but it had a divine smell. The matching facial scrub however, is very good, it leaves skin soft and shiny.
