My family had the privilege of trying the Koru Naturals products: Skin Clear Cream, Manuka Honey Propolis Soap, Manuka Honey and Manuka Oil Facial Cleanser & Manuka Honey, Tamarind and Manuka Oil Facial Toner for this review to use in conjunction with our own homeschool curriculum. This is a Schoolhouse Review Crew Review. All opinions expressed are my own or those of my family.

I got to try four of their products: Skin Clear Cream, Manuka Honey Propolis Soap, Manuka Honey and Manuka Oil Facial Cleanser & Manuka Honey, Tamarind and Manuka Oil Facial Toner. The NZ Fusion Botanicals product line of Koru Naturals contains no parabens, artificial colorants or fragrances. All these products use natural ingredients to protect the face and skin. They help solve skin problems and keep it looking healthy.
Skin Clear Cream is part of the NZ Fusion Botanicals product line of Koru Naturals. This skin cream is great for acne prone skin and blemishes. It's main ingredients are raw, unpasteurized Manuka Honey (rated at 20+) and pure steam-distilled East Cape Manuka Oil. For the 20th Anniversary of this product they have made a more advanced formula with some other ingredients added to those that have been present since the beginning. These include: Kawakawa and Harakeke, Burdock Root, Thyme, Canadian Aspen Bark, etc. A full list of ingredients is listed on their website. This skin cream has natural moisturizers and promotes skin elasticity as well.
Manuka Honey Propolis Soap is a 4.93 oz boxed bar of soap made with Manuka Honey and Propolis from the hives of bees. This beautiful golden colored bar has a bee shape stamped in it and is honey comb shaped. It is gentle on the skin, a natural moisturizer, and a skin protectant.
Manuka Honey, Tamarind and Manuka Oil Facial Toner is is part of the NZ Fusion Botanicals product line of Koru Naturals. This facial toner comes in 4 fl.oz/118ml silver bottle with squirt pump (shown in the picture is the spray pump). This product has been improved with the addition of Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) and Beta Carotene (Pro Vitamin A) for even more skin protection. A list of all ingredients is on their website. This works for people with acneic, oily, combination and sensitive skin. Perfect for conditioning skin after cleansing and before moisturizing.
How We Used This and Our Thoughts:
I love all of the products that I received from Koru Naturals. They all smell divine and do their job really well. I started using them from the time I received them and am still using these products on myself. The four products I received from Koru Naturals were majorly for my face, all except for the soap bar that I used all over to clean and moisturize my body. I also love that these four products all go very well together in a beauty routine.
I used the facial cleanser, facial toner, and cream products in my morning beauty routine. The first product you are supposed to use on your face is the Manuka Honey and Manuka Oil Facial Cleanser. It comes out of the pump as a gel and you are supposed to shake the bottle well before dispensing. Then you massage a small amount in an upwards circular motion with clean fingers or a cotton pad all over your face especially where problematic areas are, wait 2 minutes, and give your face a good rinse. This made my face tingle a little and I could feel it working. I only needed about two pumps of it to get my whole face covered. Next you put the Manuka Honey, Tamarind and Manuka Oil Facial Toner on by applying it all over the face and allowing it to dry completely. This product has a cooling sensation and also feels like it is tightening the skin slightly. This refreshes my skin and tones, or shrinks the pores; making it look younger, smoother, and fresher. Lastly I moisturized my face with the Skin Clear Cream. It comes in a handy container with a screw off lid, a plastic covering (to separate the spoon from the cream, and a small plastic spoon so that you can scoop it out without using your fingers. It needed stirred before use too because some of the honey had separated from the cream and it was so much easier to do this with the little spoon as well. The cream went on smoothly and didn't leave my face overly oily. It absorbed into my skin well and left my face feeling really smooth and soft. The Manuka Honey Propolis Soap is a wonderful honey glycerin bar with propolis from bees. The benefits of Manuka honey are great. Honey is anti-bacterial, antibiotic, and is said to repair tissue damage. My husband and I have used honey to treat burns and it works miraculously to heal the skin. Propolis is natures richest source of bioflavanoids which defend your skin against the damaging effects of stress, pollution, and even age itself. I love the cute packaging and appearance of this bar of soap. It suds well and leaves a wonderful fragrance behind, cleaning the skin and leaving it moisturized and silky smooth. These products are amazing and I will be getting them again once I am all out. I am also excited to try more Koru Naturals products in the upcoming years.
You can buy the Skin Clear Cream for $19.20, Manuka Honey and Manuka Oil Facial Cleanser for $13.60, Manuka Honey, Tamarind and Manuka Oil Facial Toner for $13.20, & Manuka Honey Propolis Soap for $7.90 on the Koru Naturals website.
