Pampering Products From Koru Naturals (A Schoolhouse Crew Review)

Often when I have the opportunity to review, I have the chance to try out something that is for the family- homeschool curricula, books, DVDs. But, every once in a while I have the chance to review something special just for me. I was thrilled to find out that I would have the opportunity to review skin care products from Koru Naturals. I already had some experience with several products from Koru Naturals, including their Emu Oil that I reviewed and loved back at the beginning of this year.

Emu oil, Blue Tansy Oil, and Manuka Honey Skin Care

This time around I had the opportunity to review three products: Skin Clear Cream, Manuka Honey Propolis Soap, and Emu Oil and Blue Tansy Oil Cream.

About Koru Naturals

Koru Naturals is a New Zealand based company. They use ingredients from the nature of New Zealand to produce a high-quality line of skin care products. The name "Koru" comes from a Maori word for a new, unfolding fern frond and it symbolizes life, strength, and growth. The company uses natural products such as emu oil, manuka oil, bee venom, rosehip oil and others to create products that include skin creams, shampoos, lip balms, and more. The company has a blog where you can learn more about their products and their uses as well as other health and beauty information.

Skin Clear Cream

The Skin Clear Cream contains botanical ingredients such as manuka honey, manuka oil, burdock root, and thyme, along with other natural ingredients. There are no artificial colors or fragrances. I love that you can read the ingredients for the cream right on the product page. The cream is considered good for clearing acne prone skin as well as for using as a regular day/night cream.

I tried out the Skin Clear Cream first. Unfortunately, the cream irritated my skin. My skin is very sensitive and often breaks out with any new product. The site does caution the user to test in a small place and not to use with pregnant women or young children. The cream didn't cause any permanent rash, but it did burn and sting until I washed it off.

After my unsuccessful try, I let Charles (14) try it. He has typical teen skin, prone to acne. I wanted to see if it would be of benefit and prevent breakouts. He was game to be my guinea pig. (I purposefully failed to mention to him that I had experienced irritation with the cream.) Unfortunately, his skin was irritated by the cream as well. His description of the stinging was similar to my experience.

I think that we may just have a sensitivity to an ingredient in the cream, and I'm looking forward to reading of the experience of some of our other reviewers. I do so appreciate that the site lists ingredients as well as cautions right on the product page. I'm not great at reading all the small print on the container, but I do read descriptions very carefully when I'm deciding what to purchase. So it's very helpful to have the information right there.

Manuka Honey Propolis Soap

The Manuka Honey Propolis Soap has truly turned out to be my favorite product. The ingredients of the soap are not listed on the product page, but two of the primary ingredients are manuka honey and propolis (also produced by bees). This soap is truly one of the smoothest and creamiest I've found. And I'll admit to being a soap and body wash snob.

I love the very soft scent of the soap. Heavy, perfume type smells are not appealing to me. But this soap has a very soft, mild, natural scent. It doesn't lather heavily, but it's creamy enough to use for shaving as well as for washing.

I love that it is lasting me a long time, even with every day use. This is one product that I know I'll have to replace when I begin to run out. (And so far I haven't shared it with the kids!)

Emu Oil and Blue Tansy Oil Cream

The Emu Oil and Blue Tansy Oil Cream has also been a product I enjoy. The ingredients for the cream are listed on the product page, and the three primary ingredients are emu oil, blue tansy oil, and aloe. There are also a host of other natural ingredients, including several essential oils. The cream is meant to be used topically for minor aches and pains.

Because I have fibromyalgia, I often have muscle aches and pains. Although this pain is generally an all over pain, occasionally there are specific areas that will just hurt. I've had success trying the Emu Oil and Blue Tansy Oil Cream on these areas. I just rub the cream over a specific aching area.

The cream is not greasy and rubs in well, so it doesn't get all over my clothing. It does have a strong smell that I had to get used to at first. But, although I'm super sensitive to smell, the smell of this cream doesn't linger, and I quickly don't notice it soon after applying it. I wasn't sure how effective a topical cream would be on my aches because I haven't found most to be successful, but I was pleasantly surprised by the Emu Oil and Blue Tansy Oil Cream. I did notice that it lessened area specific pain.

Blue Tansy Oil and Emu Oil Cream


Once again I was pleased with Koru Naturals. I know that I've found a favorite product with the Manuka Honey Propolis Soap, and I'm pleased with the soothing Emu Oil and Blue Tansy Oil Cream, and I'm curious to see how the Skin Clear Cream worked for others with less sensitive skin.
