First Impressions: Krave Beauty 🌊

I’ve been wanting to try out this brand for so long because not only did read wonders about its formulations and ingredients but also because of their mission and stance on environmental sustainability 🌱 💡About the Brand: The focus for the brand was to simplify your skin care routine to the essentials and to repair of your skin’s natural barrier function. Alongside simplifying the skin care routine, the company stands for the reduction of overconsumption. For example: using up your products before restocking- this process will help consumers to purchase products less frequently, thus reducing waste and mass production. ❗️ Krave Beauty has 6 products categorized into either core (cleanser, moisturizer, sunscreen) or supplement (toner, serum) ✅ The Products: Krave - Oat So Simple Water Cream
Creamy. Light. Nourishing. Plumpness. I have normal skin leaning toward oily in the summer. When I look for moisturizers I’m not one to look for extra extra light ones. THIS ONE is a good medium between light and heavy. It makes me feel hydrated long after applied. Krave - Great Barrier Relief First thought was - hmm this smells different. I can’t really put my finger on it BUT I don’t think it’s a bad smell. And once you work it in, the smell dissipates. It’s a light weight creamy serum that easily sinks into your skin. I bought this because Liah claims that the Tamanu Oil in the serum will help with scarring and hyperpigmentation. I’m excited to test this out long term and see if my scars fade away! Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser
Amazing soft scent. I definitely notice the oat and matcha (since I consume those often 😂). The cleanser is gentle and lightly foams when you work it in. I let my face dry afterwards and sat with it for about 15 minutes and I did not feel dryness AT ALL. 💭 Overall Thoughts: As for a first impression, I don’t think I have any bad things to say about it tbh. No Fragrance. Nourishing Ingredients. Suitable for all skin types. IM A FAN 🤩 I’ll have to check in in a couple of months to give an updated review.

My skin Kraves these! 🌊
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ WORTH THE HYPE ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ The products are the only ones I've tried from Krave Beauty so far. I strongly look foward to trying them all eventually. Krave - Great Barrier Relief Is my saving grace! This is a forever staple in my collection of skincare now. I know this product will sooth and heal my skin whenever I need it most. Even if I don't have a damaged skin barrier, applying this in my night routine and putting an oil or night cream over it for bed causes my skin to wake up so hydrated and happy. ♡ Ingredients ♡ Tamanu Oil: breakout-clearing, texture-smoothing, manicure-giving (beta) active that helps revive skin Niacinamide: prevent breakouts and fades the look of dark spots while brightening skin Safflower and Rosehip oil: calms redness, soothes irritation, heals and nourishes dryness 🌎 I would say the smell is a bit interesting, the only way I could describe it is earthy, but I enjoy it. Also the texture is thicker than the usual serum so it spreads more like a moisturizer, but soaks into the skin quickly. Krave - Oat So Simple Water Cream is an awesome morning moisturizer for me. This pairs so nice with sunscreen on top. Personally, I have pretty try skin so this cream is not enough alone unless I use a face oil before. (I love to layer light moisturizers like this others though so I love it) ♡ Ingredients ♡ Less than 10 ingredients: oat, water, 3 moisturizers, 2 skin emollients, 2 formula stabilizers. Oat, the main ingredient, is a longtime favorite for calming irritation and rebalancing stressed skin damaged by environmental aggressors. Amazing for all skin types and sensitivity prone too! 🌊 Incredibly light and creamy to apply. My fav base moisturizer for layering other moisturizers and sunscreens on top!! I'm looking forward to ordering all the other Krave Beauty products!! Thank you for reading! ♡✨🌸

Krave vs YTTP
So I’ve been wanting to try one of these cleansers for a while so I thought I should get some advice on which one you guys think I should get depending on my skin! My skin is DRYYYY and acne prone

My dry skin goes:”🥰🤩🤪🤤”
Let me start by saying that I have had the driest, most reactive/ sensitive skin forever. So much so, that usually during the fall when my stress even elevates slightly during weather changes, I get really gnarly eczema all around my nose and mouth and it’s just as cute as it sounds. I’ve been using this product since the beginning of August, TWICE a day and not only am I still on my first bottle, but my skin has never been so baby smooth and happy.....ever. Of course, I feel like that is partially because of other products in my routine too, but largely it is because of this. From the moment I dry my face, my skin is happy: never tight feeling, never feeling “too clean” or squeaky, just happy and healthy and soft as ever. I seriously never want to use another cleanser and I am someone that LOVES trying new products and switching things up, I just really feel like I don’t need to. I work sometimes as long as 12 hour days with my mask on running around with my head chopped off as a server and this fully helps my skin retain its moisture throughout the day and remain glowing. With the temperature dropping over 20 degrees over night here in Oregon lately too, the dry cold has hit and has barely impacted my skin (which is crazy for me, really!!) Last thing I’ll mention is the TEXTURE of this baby- it’s jelly-gooey like and I just can’t get enough. It spreads really well across the face so a little bit goes a long way. Not to mention, it’s only $16 is loaded with antioxidants, and is officially a holy grail of mine. I would spend twice as much. Just want to give a huge thank you to Krave for giving my angry dry skin exactly what she’s been craving for YEARS. I’m obsessed and you guys have a customer for life. I cannot wait to try other products from you guys 🤗Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser

✨🌸♡ Rite Aid find! ♡🌸✨
This really caught my eye because of the ingredients. Lactic Acid: exfoliate Squalane: hydrating and promotes microbiome diversity without clogging pores Rosehip seed oil, Vitamin-E & Coenzyme Q10: antioxidants that help heal and fight free radical damage Jojoba oil: various healing properties Glycolic Acid: AHA exfoliate Salicylic acid: decrease chance of breakouts and increase blemish healing Along with a bunch of plant extracts 🪴🤗 ♡1st Impression♡ Application was very smooth, it did not take much to get the coverage in that photo! I felt tingling less than a minute into application. I only left it on for 8 minutes and felt it was too long!! I do have pretty "virgin" skin and can become sensitized very easily. This was very easy to wash off which was nice because I kinda wanted it off my face ASAP 😖 My face was very red and hot as seen in the photo posted. Since I was getting ready for bed, I applyed essano - Certified Rosehip Oil Krave - Great Barrier Relief & Krave - Oat So Simple Water Cream and woke up with nice, calm and hydrated skin!! ♡Overall Thoughts♡ I will only be using this once a week at most!! Hopefully my skin reacts better overtime, or it's supposed to react like that and I'll see some skin texture improvement and a brighter complexion in a few weeks! Please comment some mask recommendations!♡✨🌸

I love Krave Beauty, I love the brands mission on simple skincare to reset the skin. It’s the perfect method. I love this brand because the owner Liah Yoo is so informational and kind with the people who shop her products, I love how responsive they are. What people should know is that these products are made of all great ingredients the moisturizer only has 10 ingredients!!! I am obsessed with Krave - Great Barrier Relief when using this your skin is glowy af and your skin is moisturized and hydrated. I love the Krave - Oat So Simple Water Cream because it’s perfect to seal everything in while hydrating the skin! Affordable prices too!

THE Most Underrated Skincare Brand 🏆
THE Most Underrated Skincare Brand 🏆
I have sensitive combination skin that is acne-prone. I was dealing with a lot of hormonal acne as well but I’ve finally gotten it a bit more under control but do get breakouts and acne scars still. I’m also very sensitive to fragrance. Recently I bought a few products from Krave and I never plan on going back. They don’t have the fullest range just yet but the products they do have are total rockstars in affordability and ingredients. 🌱 Krave is all about taking a clean break. There are a lot of misconceptions and nasties in the skincare world that are not needed and not smart. Krave is all about taking a break from that and resetting. Here are my current favorites: ✨Great Barrier Relief Serum $28 for 1.52 fl oz 🔑 Key Ingredients: Tamanu Oil, Safflower Oil, Rosehip Oil, Vitamin B3, Ceramide These ingredients are for skin regeneration, hyperpigmentation, anti-aging, brightening, acne-fighting and generally repairing a damaged skin barrier. This serum is turning into an all time favorite between the ceramide and niacinamide ingredient list. I actually use this after a lighter Vitamin C serum during the morning on my mask area and I think it’s been really helping to create a barrier and prevent breakouts from constant mask wearing. This product is great for mimicking your skin’s natural moisture barrier so it’s great for skin that needs help from too many actives, sunburn, etc. ✨The Beet Shield $20 for 50ml 🔑 Key Ingredients: Beet root, Allantoin, Vitamin C, Resveratrol and EGCG. This daytime fluid has ingredients that overall give skin antioxidants, prevent signs of aging, soothe skin, fight free radicals, reduce pigmentation, reduce blemishes and moisturize. This is a chemical screen that is very lightweight. It doesn’t leave skin sticky or leave a white cast. It also has Vitamin C which I love! I feel like using this and their serum has maintained my clear skin even with the mask. Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser $16 for 4.05 fl oz 🔑 Key Ingredients: Matcha, hemp seeds, oats, almonds, Vitamin B5 and Sodium PCA. ✨This cleanser is stunning. It is highly hydrating and skin barrier friendly. This can be used morning and night and a little goes a long way. The normal amount I’ve used in the past covered my fave, neck, chest and back so I’ve been able to use less by using this product as well. It doesn’t strip the skin and packs a gorgeous punch of antioxidants and hydration while cleansing. Perfection. ♻️ You can also choose carbon offset shipping for $1 more when ordering from them and the products come in a 100% recyclable carton with no excess fillers.

Products & Tips for Maskne 😷
I have sensitive combination skin that is acne-prone so wearing a mask constantly at work is not helpful for my skin progress. I’ve been recommending a few products to friends and family and figured I’d share what has been working for me! Morning Mask Routine 😷 1. Matcha Hemp Cleanser by Krave 2. Flawless Serum by SkinKissed (Vitamin C and HA) 3. Great Barrier Relief by Krave (just in mask area) 4. Daily Greens by Farmacy 5. The Beet Shield by Krave (everywhere!) Night Mask Routine 🌝 1. Very Cherry Clean Balm by Farmacy 2. Matcha Hemp Cleanser by Krave 3. Great Barrier Relief by Krave 4. Retinal Moisturizer by Allies of Skin 5. Facial Oil (sometimes & it varies) Heavy Hitters ⚾️ 1. Great Barrier Relief Serum by Krave This serum is incredible. It mimics your natural skin barrier so it is perfect for a damaged moisture barrier as well as providing a barrier between your skin and your mask. The Niacinamide in this is also very useful for breakouts! 2. Allies of Skin Retinal /Moisturizer (Vitamin A) You do not need to buy a super expensive retinal product to have an effective retinal. This was a special purchase for myself and I love it but cheaper options exist! Retinal/ Retinol products can be tricky if it’s your first time but they are essentially acne treatment products because they increase your skin cell turnover. I find they increase healing time and prevent breakouts in the first place and I LOVE them for breakouts and breaking a cycle of acne. Retinol Tips: ✨Use at night as main active ingredient (general rule of thumb is to avoid mixing with Vitamin C) ✨Start with small amounts 1-2 times a week and work your way to more consistent use ✨Your skin may “purge” for a few weeks while starting out. That’s normal and it will go away if it is from purging. This can mean breakouts. I also had some peeling when I first started. ✨Pair with a heavier moisturizer to combat any dryness 3. Very Cherry Clean by Farmacy It doesn’t have to be this exact cleansing balm but always double cleanse your skin after lots of mask wearing! This can be any oil-based cleanser. I personally love taking my time, throwing on some music and gently rubbing this on my face for like 10-15 minutes. Why? Because not only do I properly pull off any oil, dirt, makeup and SPF, but it also removes blackheads. So gross but honestly you can see it working if you do it long enough! Blackheads are oil so it makes sense that an oil would be great to clean them out. General Maskne Tips: 💦 Wash your masks between each use 💦 Double cleanse your face as soon as you get home 💦Using a clay mask or sulfur mask once or twice a week will help remove impurities from the skin 💦 Let your skin breathe when you can- I avoid foundation/ CC cream whenever possible and I think it helps me personally. 💦 If you’re really struggling, I’d recommend using the Healing Ointment as a day moisturizer. Talk about a barrier between your skin and your mask! What are your maskne tips??

Krave Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cl
Krave Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser & Kale-Lalu-yAHA 🌿 This jelly textured cleanser is a joy to use. It’s never drying nor strips the skin. I end up with skin that’s clean, hydrated and soft. This cleanser contains antioxidant powerhouse matcha. Matcha is a form of green tea with an exponential number of antioxidants like polyphenols such as EGCG in comparison to regular green tea. The green tea plants are grown in the shade for a few weeks prior to processing which increases the chlorophyll levels 🍵 This cleanser is perfect if you want a gentle cleanser packed full of antioxidants that won’t dry your skin out. The texture is just plain fun! I love acid toners as I prefer chemical exfoliation. Kale-Lalu-yAHA uses 5.25% glycolic acid to gently yet effectively exfoliate the skin. I love that this acid toner also contains antioxidant packed dark leafy greens like kale, spinach and parsley. It’s well rounded as it’s combined with soothers and hydrators like hyaluronic acid, aloe, allantoin and B5. There’s a few extras like chlorella minutissima extract (an antioxidant packed algae) & malachite extract—a powerful antioxidant that seeks out free radicals。 Kale-Lalu-yAHA has become my all time favorite acid toner (besides P50) for its ability to be effective and gentle at the same time!

Review My Nighttime Routine 🌙
Review My Nighttime Routine 🌙
✨ I have sensitive combination skin that is acne-prone and I also get hormonal breakouts. My skin doesn’t love fragrance and also really benefits from consistency. 🍉At night, I double cleanse to remove make-up, dirt, SPF and impurities. I typically use Farmacy’s Very Cherry Clean balm and Krave Beauty’s Matcha Hemp Cleanser which are gentle and packed with perks from Vitamin C to antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. 🍊After that, I use an eye cream. Lately, I’ve been using my mini Jet Lag mask for this purpose and love it. I find this mask to be so multifunctional and really hydrating. Sometimes I’ll use it as a nighttime moisturizer too but not tonight. 🍋Although it varies depending on the night and need that day of my skin, last night I went in with a retinol once my skin was drier after washing rather than keeping it wet for a different serum like HA, etc. I don’t adore this retinol and have a new one coming from Allies of Skin but this does a good job with cell turnover despite the questionably long ingredient list and questionable customer service/behavior of the brand. 🍏After that, I used this moisturizer by Farmacy which I wasn’t in love with at first but it is growing on me, especially for summertime where I want a bit of a lighter finish compared to some of my winter nighttime moisturizers. 🍇Then to lock everything in, I use this gorgeous oil by Leah Skin. This is an oil that actually can be paired with retinol according to the brand owner because it is a stable form of Vitamin C which is super cool. 🌈 I like this routine quite a lot minus the retinol although it does the job for now.
