While packing for a sun-drenched, cocktail-filled December getaway, the KORA Organics Luxurious Rosehip Oil made the short guest list of beauty products I packed recently for Costa Rica. Its UV damage reversing properties and regenerating abilities could not be more fitting, which sold me on the spot. And, since the brand was started by supermodel Miranda Kerr, it conveniently comes in a travel friendly runway size: 0.5… #SampleSize?
Oils are the new serums. The emphasis on their natural origin, purity and potency is shoved deep down our dermis at every beauty counter. Rosehip Oil is one of the most delicate facial oils on the market and with its rather short shelf life it’s best kept away from natural light in a cool place. Extremely rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins A, C and E, this antioxidant loaded, collagen producing, and wrinkle smoothing oil is a vanity rarity. #SoHip
The name KORA Organics Luxurious Rosehip Oil is slightly misleading. This particular KORA formula is actually a blend of Jojoba, Seabuckthorn, Jasmine, Rose, and Pomegranate Oils though Rosehip Seed does play a starring role. All the healing and nourishing benefits of oils are supported by Noni Fruit Extract, one of nature’s most powerful anti-agers. 99% natural and 98% organic, this KORA fusion is pretty flawless in its composition. #ModelDiet
Suitable for all skin types, I find It most beneficial to apply KORA Organic Luxurious Rosehip Oil on damp skin after my evening cleansing. It absorbs instantly and leaves the skin soft, smooth, and hydrated. If your skin is feeling particularly needy, feel free to follow up with a night cream or if you’re more on the dry side, try it in the morning under your SPF. Lighter than most facial oils, this KORA original has a delicate scent that won’t trigger any of your sensitivities. #OneSizeFitsAll
I may be the last to believe we need yet another skincare line endorsed by a supermodel, but I effing love Miranda Kerr. The very first Australian Victoria Secret’s Angel is in her thirties, which shows it’s never too late to spread your wings. She believes swimming in the ocean cures a hangover and I honestly needed someone legit to second me on that one. She wrote a self-help book, Treasure Yourself (which gives everyone even more hope), and now owns an organic skincare company because “What you put on your skin – soaks in – use organic!!”. Supermodels say the darndest things. All the mud baths I’ve taken must explain why my soul is so dark… #MiranDUH
