Kora Organics Cream Cleanser!


I've been swinging through a love-affair lately, a deep, passionate love affair with Kora Organics. I'd been eyeing the products for such a long time and was hesitant to buy them because my skin is sensitive and I have allergic reactions to lavender. 
After a few sneaky tests (hiding in a secluded corner of David Jones with a tester bottle in hand) I jumped  in and purchased the Cream Cleanser. Needless to say, it didn't take long before I'd accumulated an array of Kora products and was loving every second of it.
The cream cleanser is targeted at normal, dry or sensitive skin and it's definitely not irritating to my break out prone, combination-oily, sensitive skin. It's base ingredients are Camomile and Aloe Vera which are excellent at healing and soothing dry or irritated skin. It has nourishing macadamia and avocado oils as well as my personal favourite, Rose Hip Oil. Vitamin E and Noni Extract make skin vibrant and luminous while adding anti-aging properties.
All of the ingredients are completely natural and almost 90% of them are from organic farming. There are no sulfates, parabens, silicones or glycols (which irritate the skin and are unnecessary ingredients) and it's also free of synthetic fragrances and colours, which can also cause allergic reactions.
I have very sensitive skin and it took me a long, long time to figure that out. For so many years I've been treating my skin with anti-acne products and just making things worse. For me, anti-acne product just seem to irritate my skin and cause acne, since I've started treating my skin as 'Sensitive Skin' I've been acne free and am only prone to slight blemishes around certain (hormonal) times of the month. The Kora Organics Cream Cleanser doesn't irritate my skin, it doesn't spark up any acne or blemishes and it gives my skin such a radiant luminosity.
The main complaint I hear about the brand is the price but I'd like to point out something quickly while I have your attention. If you go an pick up your bottle of chemical-based cleanser, you're going to notice that one of the first ingredients is water. Your product is watered down to accommodate to the regular amount of product that people use. This Kora Organics cleaner contains no water, it's incredibly concentrated which means you only need to use a very small amount, the picture below shows exactly how much of the product I use at a time.


I use it morning and night (and occasionally in the middle of the day if I was changing my make up) and one bottle lasts me about 3 months (roughly 100 applications).
Kora Organics is Australian made and owned and this product is classified as vegan.
You can find it at koraorganics.com, in David Jones, Terry White Pharmacy and selected Chemarts. $44.95 for 90 mL (3.04 fl.oz). If you're international, you can find it on net-a-porter.com or buy online from koraorganics.com.
I adore this product, I've repurchased multiple times and absolutely recommend it.

I've been considering trying this... It's actually cheaper than my current cleanser (per mL) so it's probably worth a go.. I don't have a DJs near me so will check it out next time I'm in the city. x

I can so relate to the oily/sensitive skin thing. I've always treated my skin as being suuuper oily, but only after an awful reaction to Napoleon Perdis make-up did someone tell me that my skin is actually quite sensitive - and that the really bad breakouts I get sometimes are actually mild cases of dermatitis! Made a massive difference to how I approached skincare.

I tried a Kora cleanser when the range first came out, but I tend to forget about products once I've used them!! So thanks for this review, I think I'll be going back to DJ's to try again soon :)
