My family and I have had the “pampering pleasure” of reviewing products from Koru Naturals for a little over a month now.
Along with all of the other crew members to be on this review, we received the WONDERFUL Emu Oil.
I also was given the Manuka Oil and Honey Shampoo and Conditioner.
Unlike the Emu Oil, I did NOT share my Manuka Oil and Honey Shampoo and Conditioner. No, no, no, that was just for me. Unlike some of my crew mates, I am the only female in the house, and didn’t have to share. 🙂
I want to tell you why I asked for this review when it came up for the crew. Two of my children, “Mr. Loquacious” and “The Puzzler” are biracial. They are African-American/Native American. As such, they have serious problems with drying skin, especially when it comes to their elbows and their knees. Unfortunately, we have not been able to get them to use ANY kind of lotion without great protest. Ever. And we’ve been trying ever since their adoption five years ago. Well, they are 13 years old now, and I have despaired of EVER finding something they won’t fight against. They both have serious sensory issues, so with everything else we’ve tried, there has been a problem with the feel or the smell. Then, the Emu Oil arrived! First after their showers, I had them take just a few drops and apply it to their elbows and their knees. Now, this was the first time, so it was a few drops for the elbows, and a few drops for the knees, but even the twins were (so far) OK with it. There was no scent that bothered them, and it so quickly is absorbed into the skin that there was no “greasy” feel for them to object to. On the advice of my hairstylist, I also started putting a few drops into their hands and having them rub it through their hair, which also is working wonders, and they are still using it without major objection, which makes their skin less raw, and me very happy! 🙂
At first, to show them what I wanted them to do, I put the drops in MY hands and worked it into their hair, which led me to an accidental discovery! Just the tiny little bit of residue on my hands, actually began softening them! Since we live in the desert, this is a nice thing! 🙂 Emu Oil is a great addition to our household, and well worth the $9.85 cost for the two ounce bottle we were given. WE have had it for over a month, it’s being used by a large family of six, and we still have most of the bottle to go, so clearly, a little goes a LONG way!
Now, on to the Manuka Oil and Honey Shampoo and Cnditioner , which as I stated above, I have NOT shared. I have enjoyed using this shampoo and conditioner. It has a very invigorating smell and feel, which helps me a lot when it’s difficult to get myself going in the morning, lol! The Manuka Oil and Honey Shampoo and Conditioner has also been good in that my hair is nice and soft. I was worried about that, as I tend to tangly hair. Be aware that this product does not lather a great deal like brands that are full of sulfates and other chemicals, but that is a good thing. It isn’t the lather that cleans, and if you have color treated hair, all of the chemicals we are used to having in shampoo and conditioner tend to strip the color or make it fade faster. Manuka Oil and Honey Shampoo and Comditioner is a very nice product, and costs just $14.95 for the set.
