When to apply this
I use a serum after cleansing (Philosophy When Hope is Not Enough). Is this product too similar--ie, would it be overkill to apply both? I am looking for something to control oil under my makeup and my serum does not do this, but I'm wondering if I will be applying too many products! My routine is: cleanse, serum, moisturizer, primer, makeup.
Oil control in a treatment rather than more makeup appeals to me.
Can anyone comment on its ability to moisturize? My skin is on the oily side, but will dry out with harsh treatments or if I skip moisturizing altogether. I use a light moisturizer in the morning. Could I use this in lieu of a light moisturizer?

Hmmm, yes this is a great moisturizer, has an excellent texture and goes on skin great, but it won't provide you with oil control. For that I've been using Sephora's Acne-Fighting Mattifying Moisturizer, it has the same consistency and great application as the Korres product (less then half the price too!), but it doesn't have the great smell, it's unscented, which I also like, but it does mattify, controls oil for hours but is not as drying as you might think (I have very dry, sensitive skin) but it sounds like you use other products for that. I use Clinique's Redness Solutions daily relief cream for areas that might need a little more moisture.

I actually mixed this with my regular light moisturizer and was able to skip the makeup primer all together. Twelve hours later I still haven't had to powder or blot my lightweight foundation, so I am impressed.

I'm combination skin except for a very oily t zone, and I use this product as my only moisturizer, day and night. Deep winter, I'm likely to get dry along my cheeks and that's when I'll use a night cream a few times a week. For myself, I've stopped using a primer all together. I used a serum prior to this product, and I don't use that anymore either. I look at it as serum and moisturizer in one.
I would use instead of your serum and moisturizer. Your usual routine sounds like product overload but if it is working for you and your skin is responding well I wouldn't change your routine. Get a generous sample and try this first before buying or changing your current routine.

I think you would get great results if you use this as your only moisturizer.
