Within a week my skin was 90% healed
To the KORA team,
"Hi - my name is Kim Kokegei and I have always been very conscientious about skin care ever since I was a teenager (I am now in my late forties) and due to my diligence have rarely had any skin problems, however in the last two months I suddenly developed an extremely irritating and painful rash that started on my forehead in the form of raised inflamed patches of skin that were unbearably itchy.
I visited the doctor who diagnosed "seborrheic dermatitis" which commonly appears on the face, and he prescribed "Elocon" which is a cortisone (steroid) cream to be applied once a day. The cream appeared to help at first, but then the condition soon worsened to the extent that it was spread right across my forehead and down my temples to my cheekbones, my skin was so inflamed and sore I was frequently in tears, even the simple act of washing my face was agonizing, even cool water would sting and nothing seemed to soothe the itch or the pain and as for the look of it, I was embarrassed to go outside my door, make up only irritated it more so I could not even cover it up and everywhere I went I felt like people were staring at me like I was a leper!, however the doctor insisted I stick with the Elocon cream.
I then had the good fortune to talk to Therese Kerr at a party we both recently attended and Therese asked me about my condition and suggested I try some of the Kora products after telling me how much they had done for her when she had rosacea. Therese was kind enough to provide me with a couple of products to try (she didn't have spare and she was so concerned she actually gave me hers), the cream cleanser, the soothing day and night cream, and the wonderful rosehip oil. Within only a few hours of applying these products to my face, my skin felt less itchy and the redness started to calm, then within 24 hours the difference in my skin condition was not only evident to myself with far less irritation and pain, but was visibly better, with the redness calming down considerably.
It has now been a little over two weeks since I first started using these three products, once in the morning and once again in the evening, (and ditched the Elocon cream) and my condition has completely cleared up! Within a week my skin was 90% healed. Prior to trying KORA I was on prescription medication under the guidance of a doctor and my skin condition worsened to the degree where I lost all of my self confidence and didn't know if my skin would ever be normal again. I am amazed at the difference KORA's products made to my skin, the irritation and pain has gone and my skin is normal and beautiful again.
I cannot thank Therese (and of course Miranda) enough for putting me on to this beautiful range of products which I will definitely continue to use and spread the word to all my friends!!!"
Lots of love
My skin is feeling a hundred times softer and any Psoriasis plaques that remained have disappeared!!!
To The Kora Team,
I am not one to ever write a testimonial, but due to the
outstanding results I have received I felt it necessary to let you know how brilliant these products have been. I have suffered from acne since I was 13 and have been on harsh medications including Roacctuane to clear my skin. Last year I was diagnosed with Psoriasis, which was painful, itchy and embarrassing, I was one of the unlucky few who got plaques on my face. I am currently
on a medication called Methotrexate which is extremely intense and puts my body and skin under a lot of stress. One of the reactions from Methotrexate is getting rashes; I have had a rash on my face for about a month now and was given another medication to counter act this reaction. Naturally, I felt apprehensive
about taking another medications to fix my skin. I had heard of the organic Kora products and decided to try them out before I started taking my new dose of medication. I cannot express how pleased I have been with the results, my rash has disappeared, my skin is feeling a hundred times softer and any Psoriasis plaques that remained have disappeared! I have recommended this product to my dermatologist and all of my friends and felt it necessary
to say a huge thank you for the dedication and hours you have put into this product. This product has brightened up my life, and my skin.
Thank you Kora Team.
“ I love that KORA is Organic and have embraced an organic lifestyle now”
I've been using KORA now since April and love it (like everybody else).
Just a few days ago I had been pretty slack and hadn't kept up with my regime for about four days. Once I had used the skincare again, I was surprised with the difference I could see in my face. I always knew they were good for my skin, but that was the moment I really saw what amazing wonders these products were really doing for my skin. My skin was really glowing and looked so clean and beautiful.
I've never had acne or anything too bad but I can really see the difference.
The prices do not bother me at all -some may say they are expensive but I think they are worth every penny, especially when you see the results.
On the same day I started typing this testimonial, I received my order for Rosehip Oil including a sample of hand cream.
I've never been bothered with hand cream before but was happy with the new sample and gave it a try. I now use hand cream everyday! My hands are so soft, cuticles are strong and I could really notice the difference in the appearance of the back of my hands. To top it all off it smells amazing.
My Mum has had pretty harsh eczema around and on the inside of her ears for a few years now. I had heard about the benefits of Rosehip Oil aswell as its healing properties and encouraged her to try some on her eczema. The next day we both couldn't believe what we were seeing - her eczema had healed immensely and you could hardly tell she had even had eczema for the past few years!
I could go on all day about these products. I love them all! I absolutely love the tinted moisturizer and the natural glow it gives you and have not worn foundation since! I love that they are organic and have embraced an organic lifestyle now and I try to go organic where I can. Beforehand it didn't bother me too much but reading information that Miranda constantly provides on her KORA facebook page educated me and has really inspired me to do so. I now have a growing passion for nutrition.
The KORA team are such wonderful people to deal with and brighten up your day when you speak with them.
Thank you to the KORA team!
Because of your KORA products, her skin has improved so much and her self esteem is back
To all at KORA,
Thank you for all your help and thank you for creating such amazing skincare. I Just wanted to let you know that my 16yo daughter Samantha, after only 1 week using your Kora products has had such dramatic results, actually unbelievable results and I am so excited. Her skin is almost translucent. As you know she had many problems with her skin, her forehead being the worst. She had red inflamed pimples in large patches on her forehead and honestly, after 7 days they had dramatically reduced. I have enclosed some photographs that she had done as a model for one of our friends who is launching a photographic career and she was really not keen to be the model due to how uncomfortable she felt about her skin.
Because of your KORA products her skin has improved so much and her self esteem is back - I have my Samantha back and she is so happy and confident. The other exciting thing is that she has now been on the products for two weeks and her normal hormonal breakout has not yet arrived. Yipppeee.. She is very happy and so am I. I too have had unexplained terrible skin allergies and skin problems for the past five years and after spending so much money on dermatologists, antibiotics and alternate therapies, my skin condition which led to severe discomfort and pustules on my back and arms, not to mention depression due to how bad it made me feel has totally eased due to now using KORA's Body Wash and Body Lotion and I have only been using it for TWO WEEKS!
My skin feels soft and not AT ALL itchy.
I have no visible pustules or lumps. It truly is amazing. I am so excited not only have the body products helped me but I am also using the products on my face with such incredible results in such a short time - it's almost like magic. My face was generally red, burning and itchy. It no longer is.
My skin feels so beautiful and I no longer have blotchiness. The exciting thing is that they are products that are also good for the skin and good for my body which is such a bonus.
I honestly can't believe the turn around and I am now such a huge advocate for Kora products. Thank you so much Miranda, Therese and the KORA Team you little have had such an impact on our lives and we are so grateful.

I have been asked about 5 times what Im using and I never get any congestion anymore.
Im a third year nursing student and health to me is clearly of increasing importance therefore Ive felt the need to first of all try Kora skincare (I was also recommended by a friend) and then actually take the time to write about my positive experience with my new Kora Skincare products. I can assure anyone looking for good, quality, organic skincare, that they will not be disappointed. To begin with, the service was beyond brilliant (and Im hard to impress ;). The website is gorgeous and very easy to navigate. I ordered my products online and received them on the second business day. I ordered the Balancing Rose Mist, Foaming Cleanser and Daily Hand Treatment.
As a student nurse, soon to be registered nurse, my hands become incredibly dry and scaly from consistant hand washing with harsh antimicrobial soaps. My daily hand treatment literally never leaves my side now. It simply soothes my skin, smells amazing, gives a luxurious feel, completely irradicates dry, scaly skin and provides a protective barrier against harsh chemicals. It also absorbs beautifully, and leaves no greasy residue. Im hooked. I can honestly say that I will never switch handcreams ever again.
My foaming facial cleanser and balancing rose mist are two other little champions. I have clear skin but it has always been very temperamental and if it isnt precisely managed, it will break out or get very dry and scaly. Since using my foaming facial cleanser and balancing rose mist, I have a glow. I have been asked about 5 times what Im using and I never get any congestion anymore. My skin feels somehow more balanced, as though these products are what nature intended, and my skin is thriving. I actually think I also look a bit younger too. So I can guarantee that I will be buying more Kora as well as anticipating any new products that are created. So awesome work Miranda!!! Your Kora skincare line is something every women deserves to have in their beauty cabinets.
Peace and positivity
"My skin is looking so good and I am feeling much more confident"
"I recently got the KORA Skincare products which I ordered (which arrived so quickly too!). I bought the exfoliating scrub, cream cleanser, citrus mist and Purifying daycream moisturiser.
They are beautiful products! I have to say I LOVE the citrus energising mist and look forward to spraying this on my face each day as it is so refreshing and makes my skin, and me personally, feel energised. Also the cleanser and moisterisor are so light and not at all greasy - my skin is looking so good and I'm feeling much more confident. The scrub has also helped with my oily T-zone and now my forehead is much clearer. When I wake up in the morning my skin now glows and I barely have to wear any make-up now. Just thought I'd let you know they are wonderful products and I'll definetly be buying again."
Thanks for making such great products and sharing them with us.

I no longer have ROSACEA.
My names is Therese Kerr and I am Miranda's mum but that's not why I am writing this testimonial....... I am writing this email in the hope that other people who have or are suffering from Rosacea benefit.
In early 2009 I developed a small patch of Rosacea on the right side of my face near my nose. At the time I didn't know it was Rosacea. I've always been very healthy and all my life until then I had perfect skin. In early 2009 I developed an abscess on my tooth (which got infected as I don't have a spleen) and I had to go on antibiotics for several months. As a result of taking these antibiotics my healthy digestion was shattered and that is what I believe caused the Rosacea to develop.
After trying to heal my digestion, seeing naturopaths I was at my wits end and visited my doctor. The doctor prescribed Kenacomb ointment (steriod) and while ever I was using it, the skin appeared to improve but as soon as I'd run out it would be ten times worse... What started out so small ended up spreading in and outside of my nose and covered most of the right side of my cheek and went right up to my eye. Worse still it was the pustule form of Rosacea redness with white heads.
It got so bad I wouldn't go out of the house or if I did I would cover the area with concealer and foundation (which I never previously wore and was against because of all the chemicals in it and because it clogged my skin even more and prevented it from breathing). This made it worse. I had a love hate relationship with Kenacomb and i got to experience first hand what it was like to lose my confidence because of my terrible skin..
I tried everything that money could buy... I bought other organic and high end cosmetics, I tried just about every product and nothing worked!! My skin got so bad I actually thought I had a skin cancer as it would not heal.
Miranda and her certifed organic chemists had been working on the KORA Organics products for 2.5yrs+ by this time I asked her for some samples to try. To my amazement when I put the cream cleanser and soothing day and night cream on my skin it didn't feel as though it was on fire.
Within days my Rosacea had improved by about 70% and I was amazed. Within one week it had totally gone and I have never had it since. My skin is incredible.
I know I am Miranda's mum but I have an amazing "skin" story that I felt needed to be told. Having experienced first hand how devastating it was for me to feel so bad about myself because of my skin condition I had to share my story in hope that I can help someone else. My skin is amazing now and I've never got Rosacea back even though the medical industry says Rosacea cannot be cured. I started working with the company because of my personal experience with KORA Organics. I knew Miranda and her team would create great products because Miranda is so passionate about organics, health and general well being but I didn't have the slightest clue as to how amazing the products are!
Much love to all
I never understood how skin can glow…but when I looked in the mirror I could see it actually glowing!
"I used the KORA Foaming Cleanser and I woke up Saturday morning and...BAM!! My skin cleared up like crazy!! I couldn't believe it...you have no idea!? My whiteheads on my face reduced heaps...like literally 50% of the whiteheads were gone. And my skin was radiant and glowing...
I never understood how skin can glow...but when I looked in the mirror I could see it actually glowing! I was so happy =D my esteem reached a whole new level when I saw my skin like that because I never have. I was feeling confident.
The foaming cleanser and the buffer work amazing together. While the cleanser gets rid of the impurities the buffer exfoliates my skin. (Saturday afternoon, again used the cream and foaming cleanser the same way as above.) Woke up this morning (18th Sunday) and BAM!! The whiteheads reduced even more now it's 70% gone?! I am over the moon once again! My skin continues to glow and be radiant. I no longer use the Clearasil and just the KORA foaming cleanser, my skin does not dry out or feel tight anymore.
The buffer evened out my skin dramatically and my skin is smooth. Now I can enjoy my soothing cream and rosehip oil in peace, without expecting too much from them! So in a few more days my skin will be completely whitehead free, in time for my birthday...yay for me!! ;D lol.
I now use 6 KORA products (5x face and 1x body) & ♥LOVE♥ every single one of them. If it wasn't for KORA I don't know what I would do. I hope the new products do come out before the end of the year! Phew! Anyways so that's it for me I just had to tell you about my experience because the results I got were unbelievable. ! I love the answers/advice you give out on facebook and I can't wait to pre-order Treasure Yourself.
“The Purifying Cream is great for people with oily skin because it really helps in keeping the skin matte and also helps with keeping blemishes at bay”
I started using KORA skincare products about a month ago and let me tell you they have been truly amazing so far! I ordered the Foaming Cleanser, Citrus Mist, Purifying Cream, Exfoliating Cream, and Rosehip Oil.
The Foaming Cleanser is just the type of cleanser that I have been searching for ever since I can remember. It has a very nice consistency and smells wonderful...the green tea smell in it really wakes me up in the morning! Although it is a foaming cleanser, it does not dry out my skin one bit...it actually leaves it very soft and hydrated, but never oily. I only wish the packaging was more travel-friendly... like in a tube, because I wanted to take it on vacation but was concerned it would leak in my bag because of the pump. I honestly can't go without it so a change in the packaging would be great!
The Citrus Mist is also an amazing product! I feel so energized and my whole face feels awake after I spray it...I find myself using it at least five times a day because it is sooo addicting!! It hydrates my skin so well...again without making it oily. I also love the packaging for this because it is such a hassle with other toners to have to use a cotton pad or something to apply it with and it always gets so messy. With the Citrus Mist, I can just spritz it on my face whenever I want without having to look for a cotton pad and making a mess everywhere. It is also very travel-friendly...I was able to take it on vacation and it didn't spill or leak which was great! I can't wait to try the Rose Mist next!
The Purifying Cream is great for people with oily skin because it really helps in keeping the skin matte and also helps with keeping blemishes at bay. The packaging is also great for this because it's in a tube and is portable. With that said, I think I might give the Soothing Cream a try instead of the Purifying Cream next time because I didn't care for the smell of it that much.
The Exfoliating Cream is also another remarkable product! I have used many exfoliants before and this is the best one I've used so far. I use it three times a week and it is amazing at removing all the dead skin! It does a great job at unclogging my pores and leaves a great smooth base for my other KORA products to soak in. The smell is a little strange at first because of the oat flour in it but I got used to it quickly especially after seeing such great results even after one use. The tube packaging is also a plus.
Now I've saved the best for last...the Luxurious Rosehip Oil!!! This product truly is a Godsend! First off, it smells soo heavenly and feels sooo good on my skin especially after I warm a few drops of it with my fingertips before I apply. The best part is I only need a few drops and it's more than enough to cover my face and neck. It hydrates my skin so nicely and it has really helped with normalizing the oil production. I have been breaking out less and it has also helped with fading some acne marks that I had. I use it every night and I also like to put a tiny bit on in the morning as well. It also helps to heal any open scars much faster than anything else. Miranda suggested that I use some on my hair from time to time to keep it hydrated and healthy and it has been helping with that also! I sometimes soak my hair in it for a treat at night and wash it off the next morning and it makes my hair really soft! I also like to just use whatever Rosehip Oil I have left over on my fingers after I put it on my face and rub it on the ends of my hair and even my nails to keep them hydrated. This is truly the best product I've ever used, and it is so versatile because it can be used for many different purposes. It has great healing properties and I honestly think that everybody should be using Rosehip Oil daily!!!
KORA products have truly changed my life in a good way. They deliver results without using horrible chemicals that are so bad for the skin. I will continue to use these products as they truly are food for the skin and have helped my skin immensely. I thank you for making such healthy products that actually do what they say. KORA is truly a rare gem in skincare and I hope more people will discover its benefits!

“ I am so grateful you have recognised the demand for high quality products with natural ingredients”
I adore your Kora skin care range! I'm so grateful that you have recognised the demand for high quality products with natural ingredients. I'm 24 and work for an airline - I wear make up at work as well as when I'm out with my friends. Otherwise, I wear little to no makeup, and prefer a natural look.
I absolutely LOVE using the Kora Foaming Cleanser and Balancing Rose Mist. I feel like I can go without makeup when I'm not working and my skin feels fresh and clean. The Kora products I've tried so far make me feel comfortable when my skin is 'naked'. I am gradually building up my collection of these products!
Its a great feeling to have the peace of mind that what I'm applying to my skin is all natural and organic. I'm truly impressed. Kora skin care range is definetly a step above the rest & they smell amazing! Well done Miranda, and THANKYOU X
