As a full-time uni student, my budget rarely allows me to indulge in higher end products that you see on many a beauty blog. This isn’t to say that the beauty products I purchase from my local drugstore or supermarket are of lesser quality or effectiveness, but in many cases – “you get what you pay for” rings true.
Ever since I discovered Sukin Organics and started using their skincare products religiously, I’ve been reading into the whole ‘organic beauty’ thing a lot more which consequently led me to KORA Organics by Miranda Kerr.
The first thing that caught my eye with KORA Organics besides the beautiful, almost Tiffany Blue packaging was the price tag.
My first KORA Organics purchase (technically Chris’ gift but hey, whatever!) was the Vitamin Enhanced Lip Balm which retails for AU$24.95. I couldn’t understand why anyone would pay any more than $10 for a lip balm, but after trying it out I’d say it’s every bit worth the extra few dollars and is easily one of my favourite lip balms next to Honey Trap from Lush Cosmetics.
Naturally, when you like something you’ll keep going back for more and that’s what I did. I now own the Rejuvenating Foot Balm, the Daily Hand Cream as well as the Enriched Body Lotion.
The Rejuvenating Foot Balm and Daily Hand Cream do such an amazing job at making my hands and feet feel baby smooth and both smell so different from the products I’ve used in the past. The best thing about the products is that I only ever need to use a tiny amount as a little goes a long way.
KORA Organics products are formulated without nasty chemicals like sulfates, parabens, synthetic fragrance, synthetic colours, glycols, silicones and formaldehyde just to name a few. They’re also cruelty-free and vegan-friendly so those who live an ethically-conscious lifestyle (and an admirable one at that) can enjoy them too.
The star ingredient across the skincare line is noni fruit from a tree in the coffee family Rubiaceae which is an element which Miranda Kerr herself swears by since being introduced to her by her grandma when she was younger.
Another interesting aspect to KORA Organics is the that they use rose quartz filtered water in their products, where the pink coloured crystal is believed to cultivate and encourage self-love.
I’ve got my sight on the 3 step system for combination skin, which I will purchase once I’ve finished up with my current cleanser which serves its purpose well already.
Overall, I am still loving my current Sukin Organics skincare routine but I’m curious to see what the higher end organic skincare products have to offer. Honestly, Sukin is absolutely amazing for its price and I can’t think of any way to fault it at this point in time. It’s definitely somewhere to start if you’re only just venturing into organic skincare like I was!
