Kora Organics Hydrating Moisturizer Review

My thoughs on Kora Organics Hydrating Moisturizer.






This is just the trial size cause I saja nak try best ke tak. Just nak tahu texture etc. So this may not be a full review sebab guna kejap je. More like my thoughts and first impression.



I bought the Daily Ritual set for dry skin from Sephora during the 20% sale.




Whats inside the set: 
1. Cream Cleanser - Tak try lagi
2. Balancing Rose Mist - Nanti review
3. Hydrating Moisturizer




Normal price RM147, I beli RM117.50.


Sekarang GST dah tak ada, harga dekat Sephora now is RM136. Ada juga set for sensitive skin and oily/combination skin.


I dah guna sampai habis dah.

What it claims?
A creamy daily moisturizer perfect for rehydrating dull or dry skin. Certified Organic Rosehip and Macadamia Nut Oils combine with Noni Fruit and Licorice Extracts to soften skin and boost hydration. Our moisturizers also contain Sodium Hyaluronate, a natural Hyaluronic Acid, which essentially acts as a sponge, drawing water from the atmosphere – resulting in hydrated and smoother skin.

Star ingredients:
1. ROSEHIP OIL - Great anti-oxidant and emollient for dry skin
2. MACADAMIA NUT OIL  - Good emollient for dry skin
3. LICORICE ROOT EXTRACT - One of the best skin soothing ingredients and improve uneven skintone.
4. NONI FRUIT EXTRACT - Skin soothing properties



Packaging
It comes in a white opaque tube packaging with a flip top lid. This is the best packaging for a moisturizer since the anti-oxidant is protected and keeping them stable. 

Texture
The texture is quite thick and quite hard to absorbs. Dia tak sinks into the skin nicely. And kena pakai sikit sikit, layer by layer. I don't really like the texture. However bila dah absorb, dia tak greasy sangat.

 It's a thick pale yellow cream.

 Nampak tak bila sapu, dia susah nak absorb gitu. 


Scent
Since it contains essential oils, it smells like citrus-ish. Like in a spa gitu. I like it. But some people with sensitive skin might not be suitable.

My thoughts:
The ingredients are okay, especially kalau orang yang suka "organic", or "natural" skincare kononnya, this might be for you. However, it contains essential oil that might irritate sensitive skin. For me, I okay je and I like the scent.

The only thing I don't really like is the texture. Too thick for me. But it does makes my skin moisturize and hydrated. And tak breaks me out so okay lah.

This moisturizer is quite expensive for it's full size. RM181 for 50ml is expensive for me. Yang trial ni 25ml which is half the full size.

Repurchase? 
Maybe not. But I enjoyed using it :)



That's all, thanks for reading!
