A while back I was on the hunt for some new skincare products – to freshen up my routine and help my skin transition from summer season to Norwegian ice-cold winter. I stumbled upon Kora Organics, and it tickled my curiosity enough to end up in my bathroom cabinet a week later.
Kora Organics is an Australian brand, founded by the beautiful (inside and out) Victoria Secret angel Miranda Kerr. The products are all certified organic and have natural ingredients. On top of that they are energised with Rose Quartz, a crystal believed to carry a soothing energy to encourage love and acceptance of ourselves & others. Thinking of that makes me so happy and calm. Most of her products are vegan – all of the products that I bought are. Non of them are tested on animals. Yey Kora!
I bought the face oil ‘Noni Glow Facial’, the balancing rose mist and hydrating moisturiser. The last two products are for dry skin especially, while the oil can be used for all skin types.
Noni Glow Facial
This is my favourite of all the products. A beautiful oil blend in a beautiful glass container. It’s made of Noni Extract, Rosehip Oil, Pomegranate Oil and Sea Buckthorn Oil which give my skin both beautiful antioxidants and essential fatty acids.
I wouldn’t change this product for anything. I bought the tiniest bottle (10 ml), but I’m not even half way down the bottle. It’s super rich, so two-three tiny drops is enough to cover my whole face. Most days I squeeze a peanut size pump of my moisturiser onto my hand and combine it with two drops of this oil. Other days I take two-three drops onto my face and cover the driest arias.
If you’re gonna get any of these products, make sure it’s this one!
Balancing Rose Mist
This is my least favourite product of them all. Its made of Rose Flower Water, Geranium Oil, Hibiscus and Noni Extracts – which is amazing, but to me it didn’t do anything. I’m used to spraying rose water on my face every day, and find that to be a way better product by itself. The Kora mist doesn’t smell that good to me either, so getting way cheaper organic rose water (which smells yum!) is more my thing.
I ended up finishing the bottle in about a week, and filled it up with my own rose water after that.
This moisturiser is alright. It contains Rosehip and Macadamia Nut Oils, Noni Fruit, Licorice Extracts and a natural Hyaluronic Acid. I’m loving the ingredients, but it leaves my face feeling a little sticky. I haven’t tried that many organic moisturisers in my life, as I’m used to just sticking with oils. But that’s my experience compared to other conventional creams.
As I mentioned earlier I combine this cream with the Noni Glow oil, and it sure does moisturise my face! Its also perfect to put on right before my foundation and makeup. I probably won’t repurchase this one, but it does the job for now.
Over all I’m superhappy to see that celebrities and role models like Miranda stands in the forefront of Organic and Natural beauty, as we sure are in desperate need for that to take over the whole world of beauty ?
