    First time user of this wonderful product – it helped so much and smells divine. Customer service is next level too! Totally recommend.

  2. Rachel

    I love the kawakawa and harakeke soap, my daughter and I have been using it for a couple of years now. Thank you for your awesome product!

  3. Pete

    I have considerable issues with a leg as a result of major spinal surgery. The healing balm has helped relieve issues related to inflammation etc. Also great for anti chafing under a wetsuit for ocean swimming.

  4. Paula (verified owner)

    Started applying this to a poisoned thumb . Brillent! Within 24 hrs huge improvement.Hard to explain until you actually use this….highly recommend this.

    It’s magic! I have had chilblains on my fingers every year in the harsh winter of Napier. This year I applied this wonderful balm and not only has it soothed the chilblains to the extent they stopped appearing but it has produced new and healthy skin where damaged skin was from previous years!

  6. Mandy Tanabe

    I have highly sensitive skin and love Karakawa products. My first purchase was the mini box, which was a great introduction to Kara’s beautiful products. The kawakawa soap leaves your skin really soft and is non drying. I later purchased a soap saver, which really does help the soap to last for ages! The body butter has been good for my hands which get dry and prone to eczema through constantly having to use hand sanitiser. I’m just about to stock up and am looking forward to trying the face lotion and kawakawa and Manuka soap 😊

    I can’t recommend enough the power of Kawakawa healing balm, to me it would score 11/10 or even 20/10. My two-year old son had cracked lips with some small dots in blood so I tried the healing balm on him to give it a go. Amazingly the next morning his lips were back to normal with no signs of getting dried at all. One of my fingers got some minor cuts from cooking and I also applied the balm on it, it healed the next day! It is a must-have item in my first aid kit in my house now.

  8. Claire

    The healing balm is amazing! I’ve had eczema on my hands for years and normally have to use steroid creams to stop the itching when it gets really bad – I tried this balm for the first time and it stopped the itching no problems. I haven’t had to use any steroid cream since I’ve used the balm. Would highly recommend.

  9. Taylor John (verified owner)

    Fantastic product! Would recommend!

  10. Linda (verified owner)

    KaraKawa healing balm is amazing, I love it❤ I’ve used it on new tattoos and the effects are really really good. It certainly takes the burn/itch away whilst promoting great fast healing. It also helps immensely with dermatitis on my hands, magical stuff! I’ve recommended it to friends and have also purchased extra pots of balm as gifts for people to try, with great feedback. Many Thanks KaraKawa 😊 ❤

  11. Jan White (verified owner)

  15. Kaylie

    My daughter has alopecia and I have been using this balm on her head, she now has regrowth that is not falling out and she is no longer in pain from the inflammation, truly great product.

  16. Laura

    I brought some balm off you at Motueka and was so impressed with it as my partner had a white tail bit and the arm was inflamed. We walked around with the balm on the arm and within half an hour his arm was becoming less aggressive and more normal. Got some its amazing…

  17. Susan

    I am using this on my psoriasis and it is awesome. It has a very pleasant smell and it is not greasy like some other psoriasis products I have used. Love that it is all Natural

  18. Moxley

    Iv been using this Balm since before Kara started the biz. Has worked fabulously for me.. for tattoo healing (iv used it on several!), dry lips, eczema, chronic acne, cold sores! Can’t recommend it enough.

  19. Steph

    I bought a small tub and a larger one, loving this stuff! Works great for ingrown hairs or niggly wee scratches etc. can put in on the morning and by lunchtime, it’s started doing its job of healing! It’s the greasy or icky just nice! Great for sore lips too. Love the honey smell to it

  20. Erika

    For years I have had a really sore little toe! no idea why, but no matter what shoes or socks I wear, the top of that one pinky is always very painful!! One application of Kara Kawa balm and the next day at work (where I stand for 10 hours a day!) no sore toe!! seriously!! miracle cure!! wish I had found it years ago! highly recommend this product!!

  21. Roselle

    I bought several pots of balm and lip balm for friends overseas. They loved it. I do too – great therapy for my dry feet.

  22. Kiler

    Love it and smells so beautiful! Thank you for introducing me to this product.

  23. Wati

    Loved it, when I used it for my tattoo, it healed quicker then I expected.

  24. Chris

    I have used Kara Kawa ever since getting my first tattoo from Sharon. It is an absolutely great product, it helps soothe the burn from new work & I’m positive it helps quicken the healing process. I use for at least 2 or 3 days after getting work done.
