Kiehl’s Super Correct Eye-Opening Serum is a lightweight serum that hydrates my eye area while firming and lifting. The serum feels refreshing when I apply and absorbs instantly, I find it works great alone or under makeup. It has a slight sheen to it that makes my eyes look alert and awake.

I have started to notice more fine lines around my eyes and was really excited to try this. I have been using the serum for two weeks now and can’t stop raving to people about how well it works. The serum instantly plumps and smooths my skin and leaves it feeling fantastic. And in just two weeks use I am noticing the little wrinkles and fine lines around my eyes are softening. It has improved my whole eye area leaving my eyes looking more open and the skin smooth.

Karora Cosmetics Contest Winner!

KARORA collection

Congratulations to our winner Amy W. Watch your email inbox for an email!

I was recently introduced to the Karora Cosmetics self tanning line and I love it. I love the natural gorgeous glow this line gives my skin. Enter today to win your own bottle of Karora Tinted Self Tan Mist and Karora Gradual Tan!

karora tinted self tan mist

The first thing I noticed was how great the mist was. The spray was even and wide and really easy to control. I used a tanning mitt and rub in a light circular motion after I apply the mist to make sure I have even coverage. One of my favorite things is how quick this dries, within seconds my skin was dry to the touch and no heavy self tan scent. I like to apply it at night before bed then wake up with a gorgeous golden hue. On top of a really beautiful golden shade this tan lasts 5-7 days on my and fades so naturally I have to remind myself it was a spray not natural tan.

KARORA TINTED SELF TAN MIST $30
Release your radiant goddess with a color match made in heaven. A guiding golden tint gives instant glow gratification and develops into a glorious honey dipped tan. Botanical extracts lock in moisture guaranteeing complexion perfection and long lasting color that fades incredibly evenly. This multi-award winning mist combines custom color with skin caring botanicals to deliver a sun kissed glow to suit your individual skin tone. Color lasts up to seven days and fades like a natural tan. The tinted formula glides on effortlessly, dries quickly and the golden streak-free color intensifies after a few hours. There is no faux tan smell, just a fresh citrus fragrance while our signature botanicals of acai & argan will keep skin in tip top condition.

Directions: Spray directly onto mitt & apply onto skin using colour guide to ensure even coverage.

Signature ingredients: a botanical cocktail of aloe, acai berry, argan and coconut oil instantly ups skin radiance while an aromatic citrus melon twist ensures you smell as good as your skin looks.

karora gradual tan and mitt

The Karora Gradual Tan is a lotion based sunless tanner that hydrates while it gives you a golden glow. And if you use sunless tanners often you know how important healthy, hydrated skin is to a good self tan.

I applied this self tanner with the Karora self tanning mitt which is hands down my favorite tanning mitt I’ve tried. The surface is so smooth it works the product for even coverage without soaking it all up. And the mitt protects my hands from absorbing all the self tanner and letting my secret slip.

If you’re timid about self tanners this is a great product for you. With my first nights use I woke the next day with a nice subtle glow. It didn’t look overly tan, more like my skin perfected with a healthy glow. Then if I want a little more oomph to my color I can reapply to deepen the tan. The lotion was easy to apply and dried within minutes and once again no weird self tanner smell.

KARORA GRADUAL TAN $25.00
Get glowing with a daily dose of natural color and a burst of hydration. This moisture rich lotion replenishes and conditions the face and body with botanical boosting hydrators while turning it gloriously golden. Layer it up for a richer honey-dipped color. Smells good, feels good and gives a lovely glow in just one application – that’s why it’s a beauty award winner. KARORA Gradual Tan jump starts your tan after one application and builds into a deeper golden colour after just 1-2 further applications. Fused with a proprietary blend of skin caring botanicals, the rich and luxurious formula glides on the skin leaving a fresh citrus fragrance. A real skin conditioning treat that ensures your colour fades evenly and naturally.

Directions: Blend into skin ensuring even coverage. Re-apply daily for deeper colour. Wash hands after each application.

Signature ingredients: fused with a fine tuned blend of jojoba, coconut oil, rosemary leaf extract, vitamin E and essential oil of argan to soften, sooth and condition the skin. With an aromatic top note of fresh orange oil for a blossoming skin scent.
