I recently got the chance to try out the Noni Glow Face Oil by Kora Organics as a part of Space NK’s N.Dulge loyalty program. The brand is coming to Space NK very soon and I was selected to give it a go ahead of time! I’ve been testing it for a little while now, and I have some thoughts…
Kora Organics is the skincare brand of model Miranda Kerr. The range is mostly vegan and not tested on animals, but on Miranda herself. I really like the vibe of the brand – from doing some research on their website they use really natural, multi purpose ingredients that are energised with Rose Quartz, which is believed to carry a soothing energy to promote love and acceptance.
The packaging of this is beeeautiful. The bottle is glass and super sleek. However, the best part by far is the fact that the pipette sits very tightly in the opening of the bottle, which means if the bottle is undone and falls over, there is no spillage (I tested it)! If you’re paranoid about spilling your oils or just plain clumsy, there is no need to worry with this one!
The Noni Glow Facial Oil contains rosehip oil, sea buckthorn oil and pomegranete oil, along with noni fruit extract.
- Noni fruit when applied to the skin is known to be a great moisturiser and reduce the signs of ageing
- Sea buckthorn oil contain antioxidants and helps to repair damaged skin, soften the appearance of scars, blemishes and wrinkles.
- Rosehip oil is rich in antioxidants, omega 3 & 6, vitamins A & C and has anti-inflammatory properties. It softens sun damage, pigmentation, scarring and other environmental influences that can lead to signs of aging. Great for all skin types
- Pomegranate oil has an abundance of amino acids, antioxidants and vitamin C and improves your skins protective barrier by providing deep moisture. It promotes a more radiant looking appearance while also protecting against environmental aggressors.
The oil itself feels lovely. It is quite light and doesn’t feel heavy at all on the skin. It doesn’t sink in straight away but it doesn’t sit on the skin for ages either. Even though the website directs you to apply this before moisturiser, I apply it after. I have mixed it in with a few different moisturisers too and it feels absolutely beautiful when you apply it.
Consumer research on their website report that many people noticed brighter, more even toned, bouncier, less imperfect, healthier looking skin within 4 weeks. I haven’t seen any noticeable differences in my skin. I was expecting some visible results, but nothing of the sort happened. Maybe this is because I haven’t been testing it for long enough (I’ve been applying once a day for almost 2 weeks) but I would have hoped to have seen increased radiance, which most people saw after 1 week. What I have noticed is that my skin is not as nourished and soft the morning after when compared to my squalane, rosehip and Midnight Recovery oils. More notably, I didn’t get the same glow that Miranda apparently gets the morning after she uses this.
I’m not necessarily disappointed in this oil because the experience of applying it is so positive and my skin feels so good when I do first apply. However, this was not life changing for me. I’m going to continue to use the oil to see if there will be any long term results, but I would consider using this in conjunction with one of my other oils to get softer skin by morning. I would have really liked to wake up with glowy skin, but I can find these sort of results in other products.
