Mix it with your personality Mix it with your _______ (fill in the blank) While downsizing the formula, oats were the one thing we couldn’t let go of because oats spark joy in our skin! Oats (aka avena sativa) are one of the most well-researched, natural ingredients in skincare. It has tremendous skin-calming properties that invite your skin into a state of ZEN. Our skin goes through a lot in a day—pollutants, toxins, UV rays, and a lot of internal and external stressors. So we thought everyone and anyone’s skin can enjoy the benefits of using oats. Water, Butylene Glycol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Squalane, 1,2-Hexanediol, Behenyl Alcohol, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Avena Sativa (Oat) Meal Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin Sometimes even the simplest of formulas can look a little more complicated than they really are. Let us make things a little simpler for you while still giving you the full picture: Avena Sativa (Oat) Meal Extract Solvents are ingredients that dissolve other ingredients in the product. Moisturizer/Humectant are moisturizing ingredients that helps your skin hold onto water so it feels moisturized. Emollients are ingredients that make your skin soft and smooth. Skin-Identical Ingredients are ingredients that mimic what is naturally found in your skin. Viscosity Controlling ingredients help to create the ideal product texture. Soothing ingredients help lighten discomfort in the skin and often hold soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. Preservatives help preserve the ingredients and cosmetic safety in your products, and in tiny amounts are safe on your skin. Source . A universally inclusive moisturizer. Moisturizers are probably the single most un-universal product category out there—everyone has a different preference in texture, finish, and ingredients. Even among people with similar skin concerns, some like their moisturizer more emollient while others prefer it more gel-like; some like the formula to linger while others want something fast-absorbing. When we were creating Oat So Simple Water Cream, we asked for your “ideal dream moisturizer,” and received 2,364 very specific, very different entries. Even though there were some commonalities in what you dreamed up, there was no singular answer. And, of course, because you are all so unique and so are your skin cravings. Our response to these 2,364 diverse individual wishes? Simplify to amplify. We simplified the ingredients and formula to amplify the benefits. When the world is trying to sell products by adding features on top of features, we went in the opposite direction. The core purpose of Oat So Simple Water Cream is to simply moisturize. Nothing more, nothing less. We let go of unnecessary, trendy, fancy active ingredients, any potential allergens, irritants, sensitizers, and any other ingredients that can be problematic for sensitive and even fungal acne friends. After three years of developing—more like, downsizing—the formula, it came down to less than 10 ingredients. We wanted to provide you with the simplest yet still moisturizing moisturizer, so that YOU have the freedom and power to use it as is or to build upon it, if necessary. Oat So Simple Water Cream is a basic moisturizer that you can layer once, multiple times, or mix with your favorite facial oils, serums, and boosters as you wish. Oat So Simple Water Cream is like that friend that’s not the loudest but is always there and reliable; that lifts you up, and respects your choices and decisions.

If the moisturizer doesn’t work for you, give it to a friend or family member. That way there’s no waste and it can go to a better home! Step 2: Get the deets. Although generally, Oat So Simple Water Cream is 100% recyclable, in the US, what can and can’t be recycled varies based on the city you live in. Do a quick google search to read up on your city's recycling guide. Step 3: Chuck it in the (recycling) bin. If you checked your location and you’re good to go, it’s time for it to be recycled!

ingredient spotlight: oatmeal
This post is all about oatmeal, which is definitely something I never thought would be in skincare. However, I’ve found it insanely helpful for dry or normal skin types, as well as sensitive and acne prone skin. It’s very soothing and repairing! It is produced by finely grinding oats, then boiling them. The antioxidants found in oats (and colloidal oatmeal), can help soothe skin! It also contains water-binding properties and is an effective skin protectant. The FDA categorizes colloidal oatmeal as a skin protectant, allowing it to be listed as an active ingredient on skincare products. Today I’m going to be talking about three products with oats, FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Wild Oat Hydrating Toner , Krave - Oat So Simple Water Cream , and the Herbal Dynamics Beauty - HYALURONIC ACID & OAT OVERNIGHT RECOVERY MASK . — Wild Oat Hydrating Toner: perfect in my AM routine when I need some extra hydration AND to tone, but don’t wanna dry my skin out. I usually apply this with my hands, after I wash them, and just kind of pat the milky toner in. It’s a great layering product, and I can layer a few pats of this in before going in with my moisturizer. It’s pretty watery, but somehow manages to pack in a lot of hydration; sometimes I’ll mix it with a serum to get extra hydration. I make sure to bring this down to my neck and chest cause I don’t wanna leave those out! Because this has colloidal oatmeal, it’s super soothing, mega hydrating, and the most calming. I am nowhere near empty because a little is a lot, but I would totally repurchase this for my am routine when I run out. $22 for 6oz, which is kind of a steal. — Oat So Simple Moisturizer: with oats and squalane, it’s hard to go wrong with this moisturizer. This moisturizer is perfect for my normal to oily skin for the day time, as it’s a water cream and not very thick. It boasts only NINE ingredients, so you can see just how important the oatmeal is to this product. It’s a very soothing and calming moisturizer, sinks in quickly, and neutralizes redness pretty fast. I will occasionally use an oil with this if my skin is dry, but this and the rest of my routine do a pretty good job at hydrating! It may not be enough for dry skin or skin that is prone to lots of environmental damage over the course of the day. This runs at $28, which I also think is a good deal, and I would repurchase it! — Hyaluronic Acid and Oat Overnight Recovery Mask: unfortunately, I do not like this product. The texture of it really throws me off, as it’s very moisturizer-but-balmy. When applied, it kind of streaks along my face and doesn’t sink in for a while, and doesn’t really add any hydration or soothing properties like the other two I’ve mentioned. It has more of a wash off mask feeling than an overnight, as it doesn’t dry. This is the first product I’ve tried with oats that doesn’t hold up! The full size runs about $30 (I have the mini at $17, gifted).
Herbal Dynamics Beauty-HYALURONIC ACID & OAT OVERNIGHT RECOVERY MASK
Part 2: my quest for the perfect gel moisturizer
I tried 7 different gel moisturizers so you don’t have to! Part 2/3 (Parts 1 and 3 are on my page) Krave - Oat So Simple Water Cream Liah Yoo is my skinfluencer bae and I really trust her recommendations and her brand. I wanted to love this moisturizer since it has so few ingredients and is supposed to be great for oily skin, but sadly it was just not moisturizing enough for me. I tried it everyday on my face for about a month in all different ways—after many hydrating layers of toners/essences/serums, with a moisturizing sunscreen on top, mixed with Squalane oil, applied it in multiple layers—and still my face would feel tight and dry after a few hours. Sometimes parts of my face would be peeling by the end of the day too. The texture of this product is beautiful, it’s exactly what you’d expect from a water cream and is scent less. I would recommend this if you have very oily skin, but otherwise I don’t think it will be occlusive enough. Dr.G - RED-BLEMISH Clear Cream This is another product I purchased after seeing it in one of Liah’s favorites videos. I also really wanted to love this product. It has an amazing ingredients list with lots of soothing, moisturizing ingredients like glycerin and cica. The texture is a super lightweight watery gel, and it sinks nicely into the skin. However, I had the same problem with this product as I did with the Krave Oat So Simple. Though I did not experience any peeling with this product, it was not occlusive enough and I would feel tight and dry after a few hours. However, I would still recommend this to anyone with oily skin or people who live in a hot and humid climate. The ingredients are amazing and it didn’t worsen my acne. ETUDE HOUSE - Soonjung Hydro Barrier Cream I read and watched rave reviews about the Etude House Soon Jung line and how it was formulated for sensitive skin. The texture of this cream is more like a gel-cream, I would say. It’s smooth, white, and scentless. However, I had the opposite problem with this cream where I felt like it was too occlusive for me. Like the Neutrogena Hydroboost Gel-Cream, this product also felt like I had a thin layer of Vaseline on my skin. Especially after applying sunscreen, my face felt a little sticky/tacky and looked pretty greasy. The grease does fade after a while, but the tacky occlusive feeling did not fade for me. My boyfriend, who has extremely dry skin, has been using this cream as a daytime moisturizer and his skin loves it. But I would not recommend it to people who have combo or oily skin. Stay tuned for Part 3 of my gel moisturizers review!
Krave-Oat So Simple Water Cream
Part 1: my quest for the perfect gel moisturizer
I’ve always thought I had super oily skin, and because of this I have been using gel moisturizers for daytime for the past year. During quarantine, I ran out of my second jar of Neutrogena Hydroboost Gel and also discovered the world of skincare Youtube and hydrating serums. Thus began my quest to find the perfect gel moisturizer! Part 1/3 (check out Parts 2 and 3 for the rest of the review) Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer This was the first gel moisturizer I tried and honestly, I really liked it. Unfortunately, I don’t have a photo of the gel since I finished my jar already, but the texture is like a watery, blue gel and it didn’t irritate my skin or acne. I also felt like it helped keep my oiliness at bay. However, after I learned more about skincare and how to read an ingredients list, I wasn’t a fan of the synthetic dyes or fragrance in this product. Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Gel-Cream I turned to the other version of this product, which is a gel-cream instead of a gel and does not have synthetic fragrance. The texture is a bit thicker and more jelly-like than the Hydroboost Gel, and it has more of an occlusive dimethicone-y feeling on the skin. My mom, who has oily, mature skin but uses a lot of retinoid products, likes this product, but for me I felt like it was too occlusive. It felt like I had a thin layer of Vaseline when I used it on my face, especially after applying sunscreen on top. But that being said, this product also did not irritate my skin or my acne, so if you have dry skin or use a lot of exfoliants/retinoids, this might be a good option for you. I know Dr. Nina Desai (dermatologist on YouTube) likes and uses this product herself. The other moisturizers will be in Parts 2 and 3 of my review! (Not enough characters to fit them all in one post)
Neutrogena-Hydro Boost Gel-Cream
my perfect AM routine
Hi guys!!! Today I am sharing my perfect AM routine. I like testing out different products and different routines, but these four products will ALWAYS be in my arsenal as staples for my normal to oily skin. I’ve been using this exact routine for about a month now, with very little changes to test new things. None of these things upset my rosacea or cause discomfort! My Skin Type: — normal to oily — blemish prone, — some hyperpigmentation/PIE — rosacea Why this is my perfect AM routine: — hydrating — calming/soothing — simple — treats hyperpigmentation Products included: — FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Wild Oat Hydrating Toner — FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry — Krave - Oat So Simple Water Cream — PAULA'S CHOICE - Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid Mini Reviews: — Wild Oat Hydrating Toner: perfect in my AM routine when I need some extra hydration AND to tone, but don’t wanna dry my skin out. I usually apply this with my hands, after I wash them, and just kind of pat the milky toner in. It’s a great layering product, and I can layer a few pats of this in before going in with my moisturizer. I make sure to bring this down to my neck and chest cause I don’t wanna leave those out! I am nowhere near empty because a little is a lot, but I would totally repurchase this for my am routine when I run out. $22 for 6oz, which is kind of a steal. — Very Cherry Bright vitamin c serum: first, it smells like cherries; but it’s not overly sweet and it fades quickly upon application! I have noticed a reduction of breakouts since I started using this, and and my skin tone overall looks brighter! It’s helping fade my hyperpigmentation and I’m on my second bottle of this already. Doesn’t irritate my skin as some VITC’s do, but is kind of soothing. It has kind of a juicy texture, not watery but not thick either. I know it’s a little pricy but I will probably exclusively use this for the long haul. — Oat So Simple Moisturizer: with oats and squalane, it’s hard to go wrong with this moisturizer. Again, here I go with the oats; they are hydrating and soothing and so calming. This moisturizer is perfect for my normal to oily skin for the day time, as it’s a water cream and not very thick. I will occasionally use an oil with this if my skin is dry, but this and the rest of my routine do a pretty good job at hydrating! — Youth Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid: my holy grail sunscreen. It’s THIN, so thin, so watery. It layers on nicely and plays well with the rest of my routine, and adds a bit of hydration as well. It has a slight blurring effect, meaning my pores look less defined when I use this. It’s SPF50 which is exactly what I need in the Florida sun. This works well with any makeup I put on top, from tinted moisturizers to sheer tints and foundations.
Krave-Oat So Simple Water Cream
Review: Krave Oat So Simple Water Cream💦
💦If you struggle with oily but dehydrated skin than this is for you!!! I love this simple moisturizer, it has less than 10 ingredients, it’s fragrance free and has a gel-cream formula. As the name suggests it’s made with oat extract to help soothe the skin! 💦On application is feels like a drink of water to the skin, I love the feeling! It absorbs quickly and I apply my SPF on top then I’m good to go!! I will say in the evening it’s too lightweight and not enough moisture for my skin in the dry, winter months. But come summer this will be a favorite for sure!!! 💰$28 for 2.7oz, it’s a good deal and I will repurchase it!!
Krave-Oat So Simple Water Cream
A simple but effective moisturiser
Review: Oat So Simple Water Cream By Krave Beauty I haven’t been this excited about a new product release in so long. When I came across Liah Yoo’s Youtube Video about this cream, I knew that I needed to have this cream in my life 🥰 What intrigued me most about is this cream is the ‘simplicity’. Formulated with less than 10 and targeted for those who just want to simply ‘moisturise’. The whole concept behind this cream really suits my overall skin needs. It has lightweight consistency and just like the name, it burst into a watery like texture once it comes into contact with your skin. Spreads effortlessly and does not require much patting in. It absorbs almost immediately and leaves my skin feeling soft and bouncy. The ‘water cream’ consistency gives this nice cooling and soothing sensation. It also blends well with other products and does not pill under foundation or sunscreen. There is no fragrance, no tacking feeling and leaves no ‘film’ or occlusive layer. Overall, it feels very comfortable on the skin. I was scared that this may not be hydrating enough for my combo to dehydrated skin or, the hydration disappears once it sinks in. But surprisingly it kept my skin feeling moisturised throughout the day and didn’t cause any tight feeling either. Personally, this cream is more suitable for the daytime and I feel like those with oily skin will enjoy this. Since, I have combo to dehydrated skin, I still need to incorporate or follow up with other hydrating products. For nights when I do multiple layers of essence or use a heavier serum then I will reach for this cream. It such a versatile cream. You can basically create your own concoction depending on your skin needs. (Btw, this cream plus the Great Barrier Relief makes the perfect combination 👌) Overall, I like this cream! It does what it claims and it serves it’s purpose as a simple moisturiser. I always believed in ‘less is more’ when it comes to skincare and this cream is exactly just that!
