I Heart Kora!

Hey everyone! I had been thinking of purchasing some products from the Kora line for about a year now. As you know, I was gifted the mask from a friend and I absolutely loved it. I decided to add to my collection so off to David Jones I went. I picked up the Purifying Day and Night Cream and the Tinted Day Cream. When I got to the counter the sales assistant mentioned she’d go and ‘get my gift’. Apparently there was a gift with purchase promotion on. I definitely had good timing! 

The gift was a full size tube of the Exfoliating Cream. It was a product that I had actually thought about purchasing so I was very lucky to receive it for absolutely free. 

On Friday night I set aside some time for a little spa treatment in my bathroom. I started off by cleansing my face with my usual cleanser, and then exfoliated my skin with the Kora Exfoliating Cream. This is a gentle exfoliator; the granules are extremely fine so it doesn’t feel abrasive on the skin. However it still feels like the skin is getting a good ‘scrub’. 

The tube states to exfoliate every second day. I believe you could definitely do so as the scrub is so gentle. However, I plan to exfoliate twice a week as this is what I normally do.

You can see how fine the granules are in the Kora Exfoliating Cream. 

I finished off with the Purifying Day and Night Cream. This is a very light moisturiser; it actually feels more like a gel due to the feel and texture. It sinks into the skin quickly which is great if you are applying makeup- you don’t need to wait long. I think this would be a great summer moisturiser; it may not be moisturising enough for winter.

The texture is light and similar to a gel. 

The last item is the Tinted Day Cream. This is a unique product as it’s one shade fits all. The colour looked quite dark in the tube. However once applied to the skin and blended out, it matches the skin quite well. I think girls with paler skin may find this a bit too dark. I have a fair to medium skin tone, so this product works well on me. You don’t need to use much as a little goes a long way.

The coverage is decent; it’s light enough to cover minor skin imperfections. I have a few pimples around my chin so I had to apply concealer to cover them. It’s probably best for those ‘good skin days’ or if you are spending a day at the beach. It also contains sunscreen which is great.

Once blended out it looks very natural. 

I plan on buying the Luxurious Rosehip Oil next. I tested it out at David Jones and it smells absolutely amazing. 

Have you tried any products from the Kora range?

    Would love to hear your thoughts on the rosehip oil. I quite like the lip balm

    I will definitely let you know! I haven't tried the lip balm yet- I might add it to the list!
