Koru Naturals ~ a TOS review

Koru Naturals Review
Ever since I had my first child, Marie, over 18 years ago I have had skin issues. My face breaks out or becomes very dry and inflamed, especially in my nose creases and eyebrow areas. I am always looking for products to provide relief and today I have a little gem to share with you from  Koru Naturals.

While I mostly spend time doing reviews of educational products and books I was blessed to be able to review a few of their natural products over the last few weeks, Skin Clear Cream, Manuka Honey Propolis Soap, Manuka Honey and Manuka Oil Facial Cleanser, and Manuka Honey, Tamarind and Manuka Oil Facial Toner.

Koru is the Maori word from the New Zealand aboriginal culture that means "new, unfurled fern frond". This special frond symbolizes the new growth, life, strength and peace found within the aboriginal community. Since 2002, Koru Naturals has been producing products to promote health to the body and to the skin.

We received:

 Koru Naturals Review

~ This cream is to be applied twice daily to clean skin and is perfect for those with acne-prone skin. Not only will this cream help to improved the appearance of blemished/scared skin, but it also helps to provide those precious nutrients to give your face that elasticity it may have lost over the years. Retails for $19.20.

 Koru Naturals Review

~ This soap is made straight from the bee hive and is known for its intense moisturizing and skin protectant properties of the Manuka Honey and Propolis.  I LOVE this soap! Not only does it smell good, it makes my skin so soft! ($7.90 for one 4.93 oz bar)

 Koru Naturals Review
~ This facial cleanser is a deep cleaner and is safe for those with sensitive skin because it is Paraben free and also does not contain any artificial colors. It comes in a 4 fl oz bottle and retails for $13.60 a bottle.
 Koru Naturals Review
~ This toner is the perfect to condition your skin just before putting on your daily moisturizer. Designed especially for those with acne, oily, combination, or sensitive skin, it will work for everyone! A 4 fl oz bottle retails for $13.20.
When these products first arrived at our house I was so excited to use the products. However, after a few initial uses, I discovered, that the using the cleaner/toner/moisturizer caused irritation to my skin. So, I tested the product on my 14 year old who is at the stage where she is just starting to get acne bumps. I wanted to use the products on Mikayla so she could thoroughly was the “gym funk” {aka chalk/sweat} off after each practice, however, the products are not recommended for use in children 12 and under. I will wait until after her birthday to start using the products with her. Also, I should mention that these products are not meant for those who are pregnant or allergic to honey, Manuka oil or tea tree oil either.
Madison has been really pleased with the products. I think they have made improvements to the acne bumps that she does still get by lessening the amount in each flare up. We will continue to use these products and be purchasing more when we run out.
I will tell you now that I LOVE the SOAP! Everything about it makes me smile from ear to ear! The smell is heavenly to me and the way it makes my skin feel is awesome. I have dry skin, especially in the colder months so I am looking forward to being able to use this soap and know that my skin is getting a deep moisturizer. The soap did not cause any irritation to my skin at all. I will admit that I was a bit selfish sharing the soap with my family members, but I plan to order more and use this as our family soap.

Overall, I love these products that we received! Even though I was not able to use the cleanser/toner/moisturizer I would still recommend the products if you are looking for a natural product. All of the items we have received have helped my family tremendously and I know we will continue to use them even after our supply runs out. I am especially looking forward to trying out some of the other products that Koru Naturals sells in the near future.
