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.

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.

Double Dose of Protection:

Warning: The combined anti-pollution, anti-irritant powers of Great Barrier Relief and The Beet Shield may make you think you’re invincible.

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

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 while brightening 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 started using this two years ago after I got a chemical peel. My skin was so sensitive and everything, even gentle cleaners burned my skin. It really helped restore my skin barrier. Even though we’re not supposed to, sometimes I can’t help but pick at my skin and this helped calm it down. I haven’t been without it in two years and can’t imagine my skincare routine without it! I highly recommend!

You must give it a try..

I have sensitive, acne prone, and oily skin.. & i struggle with redness as well (It's a mess...)

For 10 YEARS, ive tried numerous skincare brands & yet not one has been able to work for me. I've gone to stores like Sephora & Ulta beauty & dropped hundreds of dollars trying to find anything to clear up my skin.

My friend reached out to me and told me about Krave Beauty. I first thought, "Great, another brand ill prolly spend money on & not have it work out.." I was wrong.

Krave Beauty is a miracle worker, ESP the GBR. My skin has been looking SO GOOD! Now has it fully cleared up my skin ? No, however, there has been great changes. My skin is loving this stuff. Thank you, Krave beauty.

I HIGHLY recommend to those who are seriously struggling with acne prone & sensitive skin..

My holy grail

I am on my second bottle of this and I absolutely love it. It's become a product I don't ever want to be without. Truly. I have sensitive, eczema-prone skin, and ever since I started using this my skin has had no issues, just calm and happy. I use it as my go-to facial moisturizer.

SAVED MY SKIN

I have oily, acne prone, and sensitive skin. Attempting to keep acne at bay and also maintaining a healthy skin barrier is nearly impossible. Great barrier relief makes it possible. Putting it on is my favorite step in my skin care routine. It instantly soothes and hydrates my skin. The bottle last a while too! Absolutely amazing
