Kora Vitamin Enhanced Lip Balm


Kora says: The ultimate lip balm for smooth, soft, moist lips. The highest quality jojoba, avocado, rosehip and nutrient rich extracts have been organically flavoured to taste and feel simply sublime. Our vitamin enhanced formula contains vitamin c and e to soothe and smooth and renew even the driest of chapped lips leaving them soft and kissable. 
I've been interested in Kora Organics products for ages but as yet I've only tried the lip balm. I'm sure you are all surprised by this!


I paid $24.95 for a 6.5ml pot from Chemmart Chemist. You can also purchase Kora products at Terry White Chemists, David Jones and online.
Whilst this is a nice lip balm it's not one that I'll purchase again. It does a great job of keeping my lips hydrated, it smells nice, has no flavour and is a good balm, but there is nothing about it that makes it worth the $24.95 price tag. In my opinion Sukin's Nourishing Lip Treatment is a much nicer balm and it only costs $8.95. Added to that, the Kora balm comes in a pot and I find potted balms so much more inconvenient, they don't fit easily in a pocket so are the type of balms that I'll only use at home.

What I do love is that 100% of the total ingredients are from natural origin. 88.8% of the total ingredients are from organic farming. This balm has also been Natural and Organic Cosmetic certified by ECOCERT Greenlife according to ECOCERT Standard available here.
