Details

A gentle yet effective exfoliator that smooths out texture and fades discoloration to reveal healthier skin. Kale-Lalu-yAHA is powered by AHAs that buff away excess dead skin cells and unclog pores so skin can breathe easier.

A Skin Refresh Button

Your skin kind of has a hoarding problem; it holds onto leftover residue from air and products you use. With these impurities sitting on the skin along with dead skin cells and pore-clogging bacteria, your acne is about to have a breakout moment. But never fear, Kale-Lalu-yAHA is here and its brought a broom. As you sweep Kale-Lalu-yAHA across your skin, sugar cane-derived Glycolic Acid unglues dead skin cells and lifts them away. Cue Hyaluronic Acid to add some soothing hydration and Kale to boost antioxidants. Now that’s a lean, green cleaning machine.

For Squeaky Clean Pores:

Start with Match Hemp Hydrating Cleanser and follow with Kale-Lalu-yAHA exfoliator to decongest skin.

Sunspots? They’re outta here. Exfoliate away existing ones with Kale-Lalu-yAHA and prevent new spots with The Beet Shield.

Product Focus

Green juice, but make it skincare

Skin feel like it needs a green smoothie? Kale-Lalu-yAHA is packed with vitamin-rich leafy greens like kale, spinach, and parsley to give your skin an energy boost.

Work it

If you don’t like exfoliators, you’re probably thinking “Is it worth it? Can I work it? Put my thing down, flip it and reverse it?” Kale-lalu-yAHA is not your typical exfoliant, it evens out uneven tone + texture while soothing skin to keep irritation at bay. Go for it, Missy.

B is for bouncy, moisturized skin

Vitamin B5 is your exfoliating routine’s new best friend. It’s formulated into Kale-Lalu-yAHA to help trap atmospheric moisture and keep it sealed in the skin all day. Moisture acquired, mission complete!

To tingle or not to tingle

Kale-Lalu-yAHA is formulated at a 3.0–4.0 pH range so whether you experience no tingling or slight tingling, it’s working. Don’t worry, all good acids here and no bad trips.

Skin Concern: acne, dryness, hyperpigmentation
Age: 18-24

“I've always struggled with acne ever since I was a teenager. I use Kale-Lalu-yAHA when my skin is feeling irritated and just not happy. This works wonders for my skin. I'll take a clean cotton pad and just put a couple of drops there and I will gently pat my skin with it. I love the way that it smells. It's not too strong, it's not too harsh. I love pairing it with Oat So Simple, KraveBeauty's Water Cream. These two are a power couple together. I'm super excited to try more of KraveBeauty because I know that I can always count on them.”

🥬!

This product worked well for me! After discontinuing birth control, my skin has been an absolute mess—kale-lalu-yAHA is the first thing that’s calmed the redness and breakouts and has left my skin smooth and radiant. Excited to continue using and will update if anything changes in the coming months!

It's ok

I'm 18 with very sensitive, combo skin. I've been using this for a couple months to exfoliate every once and awhile. It definitely does its job as an exfoliant. My nose will be visibly smoother and softer after treatment however I wouldn't say this is a miracle product like some other reviews make it out to be. It works as an exfoliant for sensitive skin but any "radiance" the following week would be due to other products. It never broke me out or caused any reactions which is always a plus for sensitive skin. I would recommend for more oily skin than dry skin but if you have dry skin maybe only use once a month.

Love this, tremendously improves my skin

I have sensitive skin prone to acne, pigmentation, rash and dryness. This product hands down has made improvements to my skin. I was a little skeptical but since all the other products have suited me so thought of giving this a try. It actually worked. I usually use it twice a week and it has changed my skin for the better. Will definitely re-purchase.

Perfect for Body, Not Face

I can't get enough of the Matcha Cleanser, Oat Moisturizer, and GBR Serum from Krave; they are staples in my sensitive skincare routine, and I've fallen in love with this brand and will continue to repurchase! Because of this, I was hoping that this could be the perfect exfoliant for my sensitive facial skin. I have Type Two rosacea, so although my skin is too textured, exfoliating almost always takes a turn for the worse.

For me, this was unfortunately not a product my face can tolerate. After evening use, I woke up the next morning with breakouts along my chin and cheeks, which I haven't had in years, so I knew this wasn't the perfect exfoliator fit for me (turns out, The Ordinary lactic acid is!).

However, Liah and Krave have done such a good job encouraging consumers not to waste products, and I decided to try this on my back, where I suffer from seemingly constant breakouts. Y'ALL. It has been the PERFECT solution! After just one use, my new breakouts were almost completely gone, and with more consistent use, the skin on my back is clearer than it has been in years. I will continue to use and repurchase :)

The results are impressive!

I don't do anything to my skin typically besides cleanse and moisturize. Just turned 40 and it seems like suddenly I'm paying more attention to the signs of aging. On a whim I bought this product after seeing it highly recommended on YouTube by this adorable skincare guy (forget the name.) The first time I used the product I didn't notice much difference. I've been applying every other night when I remember. 😬 The morning after the second application I washed my face and it felt like a different person's face! So smooth and soft and I swear my pores shrunk. No irritation on my face, no dryness, no flaking or redness like usual. This stuff is just incredible for me. I don't often feel compelled to write a review but this product is definitely worth me taking the time to type this.
