For the second time this year, my family has been lucky enough to be chosen as reviewers for products from a company called Koru Naturals.
All of the Review Crew members were given the same two main products, Skin Clear Cream and Manuka Honey Propolis Soap, along with a third product. My additional product was Argan Oil and Sandalwood Hair Tonic, while other reviewers received either this same product or one of several others.
My previous review discussed some other products than this review will be about, but we really liked them, which is why I am sharing the link here.
First, let me tell you about the wonderful Skin Clear Cream.
I received a 4 ounce jar of this product. The two basic ingredients that have always been in it are raw, unpasteurized Manuka Honey (rated at 20+) and pure steam-distilled East Cape Manuka Oil. Koru Naturals has, however, added the following:
1. Kawakawa and Harakeke: two traditional Maori remedies for many skin conditions
2. Burdock Root: a Chinese root rich in several minerals and used traditionally for skin conditions
3. Thyme: a natural astringent and anti-inflammatory extract from leaves
4. Canadian Aspen Bark: a natural preservative
What this product does NOT have, which I know will make many people very happy, are parabens, artificial colorants or fragrances.
I am not prone to acne, but it is also a very nice morning and evening face cream to use after washing my face.
Fair disclosure, do not use on anyone under the age of 12, and avoid using during pregnancy.
This truly is a very good product, and I highly recommend it, especially if you have a preference for using natural products as much as possible. My face is feeling very soft and nice during this review. 🙂
The second product that every reviewer received was Manuka Honey Propolis Soap.
This has been a huge hit here. 🙂 First, *I* love it! it feels so nice, and it smells so good, and my goodness, it seems like it is going to just last forever! This is a 4.93 oz, boxed soap, yellow in color. The soap combines Manuka Honey and Propolis, which have natural intense moisturizing and skin protective properties, something I can sure use.
I am not the only one in our family who loves this soap, though. One of my twins, “The Puzzler” just loves it. He asks to use our shower so he can use my “Bee” soap, lol!
Now, on to the Argan Oil and Sandalwood Hair Tonic.
I wanted to review this product mainly for my twins, who are bi-racial. Our hair stylist recommends using oil in their hair, and one of the boys, if his hair gets a bit long between hair cuts, gets pretty frizzy.
Argan Oil and Sandalwood Hair Tonic contains Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Oil*, Santalum Spicatum (Australian Sandalwood) Oil,* Helichrysum (Helichrysum) Essential Oil*, Citrus Bergamia (Bergamot) Essential Oil, Citrus Paradisi (Pink Grapefruit) Essential Oil.*organic ingredient, making it yet another great product for those who have a preference for natural products.
“Mr. Loquacious” was not a fan, I’m sorry to tell you. He did not care for the sandalwood scent, telling me that it reminded him of sandalwood incense used in his foster home before coming to us. For him, it brought back a lot of trauma, so he’s not using it. His twin has no issues with the scent, and on his own is using it whenever he washes his hair. *I* like the scent, but then again, when I was a teen (back in the dark ages, y’all) my friends and I burned incense, and we did use that scent.
I would very much recommend this company, and any and all products hat I have reviewed from them. 🙂
