Haul! Kora Organics

I've been looking at the Kora Organics line for a while now (one of my 2012 resolutions was to find a more natural skin care routine) but was hesitant to buy it because I'm allergic to lavender and most of the products are filled with it.

I tested a few of the lavender-free products on my arms and didn't have a reaction so I went ahead and decided to give three of the products a try.

The first one I bought was the Cream Cleanser for normal, dry or sensitive skin. I have oily sensitive skin but I always opt for the sensitive skin products. This one does have lavender in it but it's almost at the bottom of the ingredients list. I tested it out on my wrist and didn't have a reaction to it so I went back to the pharmacy and took a sample of it to test on my jaw line. I still didn't have a reaction so I figured it was pretty safe. I presume that because I'm washing it off pretty quickly it's not having a chance to irritate my skin. I've used it a couple of times and am liking it so far but I'll do a full review soon.

The next product is the Exfoliating Cream for all skin types. I use an enzyme exfoliator every 4 days and a regular exfoliator at the two day period in between (so I exfoliate every 2 days). This one has no lavender in it (yay!).

Then I chose the Energising Citrus Mist for all skin types. This was the only mist without lavender (which was really the entire reason I chose this one).

I adore the packaging of these products and they look great on my bathroom shelf. I'm not a fan of the scent of any of the products but it doesn't linger, once you wash it off the scent goes with it.

I'll do a full review on all of these products when I've used them more.

Have you ever used any of the Kora Organics products? If so, let me know below!

I have been trying out Kora and so so pleased with the results so far. I usually opt for something without lavender oil too, just because I suspect I might be sensitive to it. Please, do let us know how you go with the products asap! Planning to buy the full range. I love to leave on the Kora exfoliator as a mask because of the high active ingredients :)
