A light-as-water moisturizer that feels like a burst of refreshing hydration on the face. Formulated with less than 9 ingredients, including calming Oat Extract, it balances out your super serums and targeted treatments with some oh so simple hydration. Dive in.

A Break for Overloaded, Oversensitized, Over It Skin

Between active acids, potent patches, and concentrated creams, your skin is working its ass off. Until one day, it happens: burnout. You feel super sensitive, you break out, and you can’t even touch your skin without wincing. What now? The answer’s simple—Oat So Simple. It was created to be the no-fuss, just-right moisturizer that perfectly complements our supercharged routines.

The no-frills formula gives your skin the gentle calming it wants and the essential hydration it needs to go from “so over this” to “glad that’s over.” Whew!

PETA-certified vegan and cruelty-free.

Oats: Soothes irritation and rebalances stresed skin.

Trehalose: Helps bind water to skin to retain moisture.
Squalane: Conditioning and moisturizing agent that locks in moisture.

The color and texture of Oat So Simple Water Cream may naturally vary slightly from batch to batch. No worries! This is a normal occurrence when using naturally-derived ingredients and does not impact the efficacy of the formula.

Pair with Great Barrier Relief
When you’re craving: Extra moisture
Why it works: Water-based cream to hydrate, oil-based serum to seal it in.
How to use: Can be mixed together or applied in any order.
Extra tip: Apply moisturizer liberally but apply serum in layers to prevent greasiness.

Step 1: Clean and separate! Before recycling your Oat So Simple Water Cream, make sure the jar is rinsed and free of product.

Step 2: Investigate! The Oat So Simple jar is made from PET [1], which is completely recyclable and is the most recycled plastic worldwide. The cap, disc, and spatula are made from PP [5]. Not all recycling programs accept PP so we recommend checking with your local recycling.

Step 3: Recycle! If both type 1 and type 5 plastics are both recyclable in your area, we recommend just throwing the entire container in the recycling bin. The labels or glue can be recycled too, so no need to remove those.

Materials Used
Jar: PET [1]
Cap, spatula: PP [5]
Disc: HDPE [5]

Oat So Simple has such an airy, featherweight texture that it instantly absorbs and makes itself right at home with your skin. It’s like dunking your face in a cloud.


How to Use Your Moisturizer

Apply desired amount on clean, dry skin. Gently massage into the skin until fully absorbed. Layer on SPF daily and face oil as needed.

Skin Concern: acne, dryness, sensitivity

Age: 18-24

“I've been using the Oat So Simple Water Cream for about a year now, ever since I found it in a YouTube review that was for people with acne prone skin. It's really refreshing in the morning and really calming and soothing at night. I wake up and my skin is definitely less irritated and my acne has not flared up.”


Skin Concern: acne, dark spots, dryness

Age: 25-34

“I started using Oat So Simple Water Cream because my skin got completely compromised when I started using way too many acids... Between this moisturizer and the Great Barrier Relief, they completely reset my skin... Oat So Simple Water Cream is just the go-to whenever I need to reset and have my skin looking its best.”


Skin Concern: acne, sensitivity

Age: 18-24

“I have been using the Oat So Simple Water Cream for about two to three years, ever since a junior in college. With all the stress, lack of sleep, and forgetting my skincare routine, all the moisturizers I would use wouldn't really work. My cousin told me about KraveBeauty and how their Oat So Simple Water Cream has very few ingredients and is very lightweight.”


Skin Concern: dullness, pores

Age: 18-24

“I really love the Oat So Simple Water Cream because it's universal and packed with emollients and simple ingredients. I would definitely recommend this to all of my friends because it fits all skin types. Plus, it just bursts onto your skin and it doesn't even feel like you're using a really heavy moisturizer in order for it to do the job.”

    Great Product

    I really like this product. Great consistency and feels nice on the face. My skin is very dry, so it doesn’t hydrate and moisturize the best. I do have to use another hydrating moisturizer underneath. Not sure if I would rebuy but would buy if I needed something in a pinch.

    Beautiful Product

    This is my favorite moisturizer as of right now. I will say it was much thicker than I was expecting. The name made me think it would be very lightweight with a milder hydration level. I found it to be much thicker and creamier than the water part of the name implies. It made my skin look very greasy and felt a little thick upon application but in the morning, I woke up with the most hydrated yet somehow not shiny skin I've had in a very long time.

    This product impressed me the most with how lovely my skin looked in the morning. I had gotten used to looking shiny all the time and was pleasantly surprised that for once, my skin just looked normal. Not greasy or shiny and not dry.

    Overall, the name is a little misleading, but the product and overall result are incredible.

    Oat so simple

    Great product, but the customer service is better! I received someone else’s purchase and I immediately contacted customer service. Not only did they re-ship the correct order, but they allowed me to keep the other items as well. Awesome! I gifted the items, so hopefully you’ll gain a new customer :)
