Here is the complete review of the turmeric mask by Kora Organics: the Turmeric Brightening Exfoliating Mask. What it contains, how it is used, what it does and for whom it is indicated. What results do we get using it on our face? This is my experience.
In one of my last orders of cosmetic products, I couldn’t help but include some products from Kora Organics.
I discovered this company last year, when I first tried noni face oil. It was love… at first use!
In fact, it is a product that I have not wanted to give up and that I include on a rotating basis in my skincare routine.
My enthusiasm for this oil was so great that I continued for a long time to focus on other products of Kora Organics, determined to test them.
I wanted to know if that first experience was a lucky case, or if the company is really able to create several excellent products.
So in my last order I also wanted to include the Turmeric Brightening Exfoliating Mask and the oil for the eye contour.
I was long undecided between the turmeric mask and the noni mask, but then I decided to leave the second for a future purchase.
And now, let’s start our review!
Before diving into the Turmeric Brightening Exfoliating Mask review, let’s talk about Kora Organics.
The company was founded in 2009 by Miranda Kerr, famous for being one of Victoria’s Secret’s angels and a supermodel.
The line of personal care products includes masks, oils, serums, detergents, exfoliators but also food supplements.
Kora Organics has also won numerous awards. It is characterized by natural and organic ingredients.
In line with this philosophy, no sulphates, fragrances, synthetic colours, parabens, silicones, formaldehydes or formaldehyde derivatives are used in the beauty products.
Finally, the company is cruelty free.
What’s the Turmeric Lightening and Exfoliating Mask created by Miranda Kerr
Kora Organics 2-in-1 Turmeric Brightening & Exfoliating Mask is a 99.8% natural ingredient-based mask, while 75.8% of it is also organic.
I must say, these are impressive numbers!
This turmeric mask can be considered as a 2 in 1 treatment, as it is exfoliating and illuminating.
In fact, while cleansing the skin, this product is also able to reduce the skin discolouration caused by UV rays.
Finally, it is suitable for all skin types and is also suitable for those who follow a vegan lifestyle.
The product has the consistency of a (brownish) cream. Its texture is reminiscent of a scrub, as it contains grains.
How to use Kora Turmeric Mask
Before applying Kora Organics Turmeric Mask, just lightly moisten your face.
Then spread a thin layer of product on the skin, avoiding the eye area.
Leave it on for 5-15 minutes to act.
After the laying time has elapsed, remove the mask using warm water and making circular, gentle movements.
However, if you want a more intense exfoliating effect, you can also remove the mask using a damp cloth.
After the mask, you should apply a moisturizing treatment. In fact, as it is an exfoliating product, you skin will then need sweetness and nourishment.
You could use Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream.
Finally, for best results, use this turmeric mask 2-3 times a week.
Here is the list of ingredients of this turmeric mask.

Review of Kora Organics 2-in-1 Turmeric Brightening & Exfoliating Mask
We come now to the full review of the Turmeric Brightening Exfoliating Mask.
I used the mask following the instructions of the brand, that is, I applied it on damp skin and left it to act for the maximum recommended installation time (15 minutes).
At first glance, the appearence of the mask isn’t exactly the best. In fact, it appears as a green cream tending to brownish, rather grainy.
The fragrance is intense and reminiscent of a mix of turmeric, ginger and rosemary. However, it is still pleasant and full of energy.
The mask spreads well on the skin and does not run: for this reason it is not necessary to lie down during the treatment. It is also easy to remove. And that’s great!
And now, let’s talk about the results I have achieved.
After rinsing this turmeric mask, my skin is hydrated and smoother. It does not pull, but I still apply a moisturizing product.
There was a problem though. As you know by now, my skin is sensitive and flushes quite easily. After the first application, I had some redish areas on my face. This happened mostly on the forehead and sides of the nose.
I think this side effect is due to skin exfoliation and stimulation, which are actually very effective. Since the second application, therefore, I have reduced the installation time to 10/12 minutes and I have had no more problems. The mask now does its duty and it does it well.
The turmeric mask is therefore promoted, but I advise you to apply it before going to sleep or when you have to stay at home for a few hours.
In my opinion, in fact, it is not the right treatment to do immediately before leaving the house, at least for those who have skin that is easily reddened like mine.
