Since having children, we have started purchasing natural personal products and making our own cleaning (affiliate link) supplies. I was excited to review the Emu Oil and Koolpurrie Restoring Balm from Koru Naturals. It doesn’t get more natural than that!
Whether it is Winter or Summer, I struggle with dry skin on my hands and feet. With four children, two of them still in diapers, I am washing my hands constantly. My feet are just always dry. Sometimes worse than others. It is not easy to find products that provide soothing relief for dry cracked skin.
Koolpurrie Restoring Balm
Koolpurrie Restoring Balm does just that. It restores. Premium Grade A Emu Oil and Pure Lanolin come together to create this thick emollient which penetrates through the layers of dry, calloused skin, to soothe and restore your skin.
I found that the best time to use the Koolpurrie Restoring Balm was right before bed, with socks. While you may be tempted to slather on half the container if your feet or hands are super dry, don’t. Because Koolpurrie is an emollient balm, the it is thick and sticky. The socks help keep the feet warm so the balm is absorbed better. They also help keep your feet from sticking to your sheets.
My favorite part is that it is pure and additive free. No preservatives. No big words that we can’t pronounce. Koolpurrie Restoring Balm is pure and simple. What a difference it has made! Now I won’t have to be embarrassed come sandal season. My feet are soft and ready for my flip flops.
Emu Oil Premium Golden
Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to do with a bottle of Pure Emu Oil. I didn’t even know you could get oil from an emu. My only experience with emus were when one tried to bite my finger off at the zoo. That’s it. Imagine my surprise when I found out that there are many health benefits of Emu Oil Premium Golden.
It is non-comedogenic (does not clog pores) and hypoallergenic. I used it as a facial moisturizer and thought it was fabulous. I even saw some of my fine lines start fading away! I expected it to be sticky like the Koolpurrie Restoring Balm, but it wasn’t. Just remember that a little goes a long way, and you’ll be fine.
Not only can it be used for a moisturizer, Emu Oil can also be used as a leave in conditioner. This was perfect for my daughter’s curly hair. Make sure you only use 2 to 3 drops though and work from the ends to the roots. If not, you just end up with a grease ball. She loved having defined ringlets again.
I loved using the Pure Emu Oil and Koolpurrie Restoring Balm from Koru Naturals. With both of these products, a little goes a long way. I even caught my husband using the Pure Emu Oil as a skin conditioner before and after shaving. He’s pretty picky about the products that he uses, so I know it’s good stuff.
