Kora Organics Tinted Day Care Cream

I absolutely LOVE this product. It doesn't dry out my skin at all which I love because I have very dry skin normally, and it stays on and looking great all day. I do have to mix it with moisturiser though, as it's too dark for my fair skin but I would mix it either way because it is fairly thick and does tend to stick to the skin before you get to spread it evenly. It makes my skin look even-toned and flawless, and since buying this I have not worn foundation once because this does the job perfectly. If you don't mind spending $60 on tinted moisturiser I would recommend trying this. You can buy the range, which consists of 21 products, from the website koraorganics.com, from David Jones stores and now from Terry White Chemists.

Cost: $59.95 (50ml)

Pros: It is moisturising and makes skin look amazing, it doesn't cake over spots, and, it is certified organic.

Cons: I've found that it needs to be mixed with moisturizer to spread well and it is on the pricier side.

*EDIT*: I recently read on the Kora Organics blog that the reason for the change in size of this product is because it has been reformulated to a more moussey type product which goes on easier so you need less. This makes a lot of sense and is a good change I think. In saying that though, I still use the original version and as I do have to mix mine with moisturiser to get the right colour, it seem's to be lasting forever. I have had mine for four months now and the tube still feel's full. I'm worried it will go off before I use it all .


  1. Hi Zara,
    I wanted to send you an email but couldn't find an email address.
    Just wanted to tell you about http://www.inspiredwellbeing.com if you haven't heard of it already. They sell Couleur Caramel makeup products at a really good price. Apparently their mascara is really good (I've just ordered some, plus a few other good natural brands :)
    It's nice to know of another Aussie natural beauty blogger :D

  2. Thanks, I'll check it out now :)
