Naris Up Japan Koaland Nose Care & Refresh Cream Review & Swatches

I don’t technically have allergies but for some reason or another I can’t stop sneezing this year and no, it isn’t a cold. My nose is raw, flaky, dry, and just generally gross. And it’s terribly sore too! Ouch!

Puffs Tissues just aren’t doing the job at this point so I whipped up my little tube of Naris Up Japan Koaland Nose Care & Refresh Cream in the hopes it would sooth my sore, red nose.

Koaland Nose Care & Refresh Cream is lightweight cream that contains natural eucalyptus leaf oil and other plant essence oils for soothing a sore nose. Basically, it kinda sorta feels like a cream version of Vicks Vapor Rub but is far more gentle (I always find Vicks stings when my nose is extra raw and sore).

It has a eucalyptus scent that not only soothes my nose but also relieves stuffiness a little bit. The formula contains super hyaluronic acid, Vaseline, and glycyrrhetinic acid to nourish your delicate, sore skin while offering hydration and sealing that moisture in.

This a really cute little pick up if you have allergies or you’re prone to colds and the sniffles. It soothes your achy little nose and gets it back in shape again.

I purchased mine for $9 from E-bay Seller AlphaBeautyUK.

    That koala is adorable! You just mentioning Vicks makes me shudder. eeewww! I have horrible memories of being sick when I was young and my mom rubbing it all over my chest. Sticky! I don’t care if it works, I can’t use it. To this day if I’m stuffy or having sinus problems my mom is like use some Vicks. I’d rather suffer! /endrant

    ooooh! this sounds pretty fantastic! i’ve got allergies myself and i get horrible colds wherein i sneeze a lot and my nose gets extremely raw and red! i definitely need to pick this up then if it’s a creamier ver. of vicks. vicks always stings too and this is just a lot smaller and easier to travel with!

    thanks, muse :)
