Korres Watermelon Lightweight Tinted Moisturiser SPF 30 Review

Lightweight foundation cream for a radiant, tanned look and broad-spectrum sun protection. Oil free and with a fresh and smooth texture, it offers a uniform colour and medium coverage, while allowing the skin to breathe. Watermelon extract, rich in naturally occurring vitamins, carbohydrates and aminoacids, prevents photo-ageing and decreases erythema. At the same time, the extract of Vanilla and Curcuma longa provide the essential antioxidant protection

What it is? 
An oil-free tinted moisturizer that provides uniform color, sheer-to-medium coverage, and powerful sun protection.
What does it do? 
Korres Watermelon Tinted Moisturiser SPF 30 is a moisturizer that contains antioxidant-rich watermelon extract that counteracts free-radical damage as well as SPF 30 UVA/UVB broad-spectrum protection. The breathable, water-resistant formula has a sweat-proof tint that remains fresh even through activity, heat, and humidity.


Available in Three shades 
1 Light Sand
2 Medium Honey
3 Dark Tan
I have it in shade dark tan. 

To get the maximum protection apply evenly to the face and neck at least 30 minutes before exposure to the sun and as needed.

You girls have NO idea , how much i was lusting over Korres Watermelon Lightweight Tinted Moisturiser. I wanted a tinyed moisturizer since summer started here like 5 months ago :P 
I was so excited it when i saw it in mail almost 2 weeks ago.I wore it couple of time so i think i am ready to share my view :)
Korres Watermelon Lightweight Tinted Moisturiser has a thin consistency , you just need a little bit, otherwise you will end up wasting it, which i am sure no one wants to do.It does dry quickly so i would advise you to work quicky  in sections rather than spots on your face.It feels little sticky for a while after application but after sometime sticky feeling vanishes.The texture of Korres Watermelon Lightweight Tinted Moisturizer is very light , and it spreads easily and evenly ,leaving a dewy finish.The Coverage is of course sheer but i wont call it too sheer. It did cover my small imperfections. I was impressed with the coverage as what i expect from a tinted moisturiser is to even out my skin tone and Korres Watermelon Lightweight Tinted Moisturiser did even out my skin tone.
I am NC30-35, and i always thought that 2nd shade which is medium honey would suit me but when i was sent to try Dark tan , i was surprised it suited me perfectly. Maybe i have tanned a bit in summer and didn't even notice. It has the benefit of SPF 3O , which is always a plus point in summers.To be honest i am really lazy , i cant be bothered to use sunscreens so this products covers everything.
I travel a lot , twice in 2 months so this product will be traveling with me everywhere.

  11. Hiya,

    I know this is an old post and you probably wont reply... but here goes... after reading this post i decided to try the tinted mosturiser, and also bought it in the shade dark tan as i have the same skin tone as you just a tad on the dark side with yellow undertones. Anywho, the moisturiser seems to have a pinky tone to it and makes me look really ashy, did you have the same problem? If so, how did you get it to work on your skin and how can i do the same???
