Review: Natural Beauty for You, Koru Naturals

koru_logo_150X150_zps0quko7q0I have a new review for you today that is different than the things I normally review.  I’m not talking about homeschool curriculum or books this time but something else.  Something just for mom.  It is a line of skin care from a company called Koru Naturals.  I was given a few different Koru Naturals products to review including Skin Clear CreamManuka Honey Propolis SoapManuka Honey and Manuka Oil Facial Cleanser and Manuka Honey, Tamarind and Manuka Oil Facial Toner.

I am a person who has struggled with acne for pretty much my entire life.  It was far worse during my teen years but even as an adult breakouts still drive me batty.  I’ve tried a variety of products over the years and had some mixed results. Generally though I had just decided it is a part of my life that isn’t ever going to really change.  When this review came up I didn’t have high hopes.  However The TOS Review Crew got to review other Koru Naturals products earlier this year and the members who were able to review those products RAVED about them.  That got my attention so I figured why not give it a shot.  I’m glad I did.

6 Manuka Honey and Manuka Oil Facial Cleanser_zpsxbgo5bpaMy new routine involves washing my face every morning and night with the Manuka Honey and Manuka Oil Facial Cleanser Koru says this face wash has a fusion of New Zealand botanicals in it.  They also claim to be free of parabens and artificial colors.  In other words this is a very natural face wash.  I found a little squirt of it provides me with more than enough to wash my entire face.  A little goes a long way.  Is is soft and creamy and leaves my face feeling the same way.

7 Manuka Honey Tamarind and Manuka Oil Facial Toner_zpsror5nxnnOnce I’ve washed my face I apply the Manuka Honey, Tamarind and Manuka Oil Facial Toner.  If you’ve never used toner before then you’ll want to know that it comes out clear.  It honestly looks just like water.  However when you apply it to your skin with a cotton ball your skin will feel very fresh and cool.

After washing and applying the toner my skin is left feeling very soft and when I lean into the mirror for a closer look I can see that my pores and everything are very very clean.  It is just a good feeling.

1 Skin Clear Cream_zpsockdha63Finally, after I’ve washed and applied the toner I set to work on applying the Skin Clear Cream. The Skin Clear Cream is designed to improve blemishes and increase moisture and elasticity. It is all natural with Manuka Honey and Burdock root among other things.  It comes in wide open mouthed jar.  The lid is screwed on and underneath is a plastic protective guard where a little spoon rests.  It is best to use the spoon to scoop out the cream so that you don’t contaminate the jar with the oils or what have you on your fingers.  As with the soap I found a little bit of this cream will go a very long ways.  If I can keep the jar well protected this one jar will last me a very long time.  Despite applying it twice a day for more than a month it looks like I’ve hardly touched it.  I have to say I do wish this came in a pump bottle.  Managing the lid, the plastic guard, and the spoon actually gets a little messy.  If I every drop the jar I’ll have a big wasted mess on my hands.  This is a small complaint though.  The truth of the matter is this cream is wonderful.  It feels so good on my face and the results have been fantastic.

The Results:

I began my new skin care routine just as I was leaving on a 10 day vacation to hot, humid, and sunny Florida.  I spent 10 days slathering on sunscreen and sweating my rear end off.  I was also dealing with the time in my monthly cycle that usually causes me to breakout.  I was dealing with the absolutely perfect storm for a couple of weeks of terrible skin.  Except that’s not what happened.  Washing, applying toner and Skin Clear Cream twice a day left my skin looking fantastic.  I didn’t have even one single blemish appear during the entire trip.  My skin was clean, clear, and fresh looking.  I was amazed!  A week in I told my husband I’d never be without this stuff again.

2 Manuka Honey Propolis Soap_zpsccumnmygThe last product I received  was the Manuka Honey Propolis SoapThis too has Manuka Honey and Propolis in it.  It smells delicious.  I kept it in a dish at my bathroom sink for hand washing.  Unlike my typical store bought soap I felt as though my hands were left more hydrated.  My usual hand cream has had a lot less use and I like that.

My Final Opinion

The Koru Naturals are wonderful!  I love the natural ingredients.  I love how my skin feels after each use.  I love the results.  I am now a converted customer.  I’m looking forward to trying other Koru products in the future.
