Details

A creamy, nourishing serum that calms signs of sensitivity and evens out skin without the greasy after feeling. A blend of conditioning oils fight irritation, discoloration and breakouts caused by a damaged skin barrier. Skin looks clear, feels calm, and probably sounds amazing.

A Calming Hand

Our skin and the environment don’t always get along. So when you need help fighting off environmental aggressors, Great Barrier Relief is there to lend a hand. It works by repairing damage in the skin barrier—the skin’s invisible shield. Great Barrier Relief helps “glue” together tears in the barrier to keep the good stuff in and the bad stuff out. Let your skin sigh a great breath of relief.

Always vegan, cruelty-free and free of fragrances, essential oils, and colorants.

The color and texture of Great Barrier Relief may naturally vary slightly from batch to batch. No worries! This does not impact the efficacy of the formula.

Note: Great Barrier Relief does contain 10% Tamanu Oil, which is derived from Tamanu nuts. Though most people don’t have issues using this ingredient, people with nut allergies could have a potential reaction. If you think your skin will react, we recommend performing a 24-hour patch test on your wrist and neck first and slowly integrating GBR into your routine thereafter. If you do experience an allergic reaction, stop using the product immediately and seek medical attention if needed.

Deep Moisture, Hold the Grease:

Oat So Simple Water Cream + Great Barrier Relief = YES. Mix it up however you like: a dollop of each, one in the AM + one in the PM, or on different parts of the face.

Beef Up Your Barrier:

Keep your skin barrier strong with the nourishing duo of Great Barrier Relief plus Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser and turn your bathroom into an at-home skin gym.

Product Focus

Mighty morphing power changer

Great Barrier Relief is a natural shapeshifter. You can use it as a daily serum, substitute it for your moisturizer or as an acne treatment to transform a spot into a not.

Triple play

GBR is loaded with Tamanu Oil, a breakout-clearing, texture-smoothing, manicure-giving (beta) active that helps revive skin. Paired with Safflower and Rosehip oil, this trio of oils—a troil, if you will—calms redness, soothes irritation and nourishes dryness without a greasy feel.

She can do it all

Niacinamide a.k.a. the soccer mom of skincare ingredients is a master multitasker. It helps prevent breakouts and fades the look of dark spots for radiant, even skin. That’s good parenting.

From your nose to your toes

Don’t let your face hog all the skin-loving goodness. Great Barrier Relief can calm your neck, body, hands, or your fire sign friends.

Skin Concern: dehydration, hyperpigmentation
Age: 18-24

“This is a serum that I reach for morning and night. As someone who has experienced a lot of hyperpigmentation prior to using this, it has completely killed all of the dark spots and all the small little dark marks that I used to have on my skin. It does a really amazing job at calming my skin if I have over-exfoliated...gotten too much sun...have a really bad pimple that is upsetting me because I ate too much tiramisu... This does an amazing job at calming your skin barrier with ceramides, vitamin B3, and tamanu oil. If you have issues with a compromised skin barrier, or if you have issues with irritation, hyperpigmentation, or inflamed skin and you have been wondering if GBR was right for you... This is a sign letting you know that it is. And you're ready.”

How to Use

How to Use

Step 1

Start with clean, dry skin.

Step 2

Apply 1–2 pumps of GBR onto your skin. Feeling dry? Add an extra pump. If you’re oily, keep it light.

Step 3

Layer on your favorite moisturizer (subtle Oat So Simple plug) and SPF in the mornings.

Free Tip

If you’re feeling sensitive, avoid rubbing! Use a clean q-tip instead to apply a thin layer on redness or irritation.

Holy Grail

I have very very sensitive and dry skin. The GBR serum works so well to calm and moisturize my skin. I typically don’t even need more hydration on top of this. Highly recommend for someone with sensitive and dry skin!!

But guess what i found out, My skin got improve during the first week of constant use of both am and pm routine. GBR repaired my damaged skin effectively <3 <3 <3 '

Now i am absolutely in love with this life-saving products, and also cleanser , gosshh this cleanser is so much different from other cleansers i have used before. The textures is soft and it doesn't dry out my skin. It works to protect my skin moisture and everything. I love them so much.

I would definitely re-purchase them and i would love to try out another products from Krave as i know they will be amazing and Krave is the brand i am believe in. <3 <3 <3

So, Thank you so much Krave for making my skin got a lot better and thanks again for not letting me down ^^

Soft skin

This stuff makes my skin feel soooo soft in the morning. I've been having issues with dullness recently and this has made a huge difference for my skin! Love it! The only thing I don't particularly like about this product is the smell. It isn't too noticeable but took some getting used to.

Must have!

I love using this when my skin barrier needs a little extra TLC. One pump is enough for my combination skin type. It leaves my skin super nourished and healthy looking. I always have a backup ready and have recommended it also to those who need some skin repair.
