A creamy, nourishing serum that calms signs of sensitivity caused by a compromised skin barrier. With its blend of nourishing oils + rebalancing actives, Great Barrier Relief helps by gently hydrating the skin, soothing irritation, and strengthening the barrier wall to replenish dry skin and kick redness to the curb. Whether you’ve over-exfoliated or got too pump-happy with retinol, GBR is here to lend a calming hand, no bat symbol required.

  • What does it do: Soothes sensitivity, redness + irritation so skin looks and feels calm.
  • Why is it different: Restores and gently moisturizes over-sensitized skin without leaving a greasy after-feel. 
  • Helps with: Repairing and strengthening your skin barrier so it can protect you from environmental aggressors and eczema flare-ups.
  • Made for: All skin types but especially sensitive, eczema-prone skin.
  • Bonus: Our packaging allows you to use up every last drop!

PETA-certified vegan and cruelty-free.

Tamanu Oil: Soothes irritation and calms redness without greasiness.
Niacinamide: Helps clear spots, fades discoloration, and brightens skin.
Ceramides: Essential to skin health—helps replenish fatty building blocks of the skin barrier.

The color and texture of Great Barrier Relief may naturally vary slightly from batch to batch. No worries! This is a normal occurrence when using naturally-derived ingredients and it 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.

Millennial Parent Vibes

Niacinamide a.k.a. the soccer parent 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.

New Look, Same Old Fave

GBR’s glowed up. Our OG tried-and-true serum is now in an airless pump that pushes out every bit of product, so you don’t need to break it open. Don’t do it, bestie... Just trust us.

SKINSTRUCTIONS

How to Use Your Serum

Apply 1-2 pumps on clean, dry skin. Use a little extra for dry skin and a little less for oily skin. Gently massage into the skin until fully absorbed. If using as a sensitive spot treatment, use light pats or apply with a q-tip.

    Not for me:(

    I really wanted to try it out because I fit the skin type description to a T. Unfortunately it did not work for me. Used it twice pm and in the am the next day to give it another shot but it broke me out.

    Hi Val, thanks for taking the time to leave us a review!

    We’re so sorry to hear that our Great Barrier Relief gave your skin a reaction. As with any product, we cannot guarantee that your skin will react positively as everyone's skin is different and reacts differently to certain products or product combinations. That's why we advise starting out with a small patch test and exercising caution when introducing new products into your routine.

    We sincerely apologize for this less-than-ideal experience and hope for the speedy recovery of your skin! If you have any questions or concerns please email us at hello@kravebeauty.com <3!

    GBR VS PCOS/HYPOTHYROIDISM

    My skin suffered last year. After visiting endless estheticians and dermatologists, I decided to continue using great barrier relief since they only provided me actives and harsh options. I have been using gbr for 5 years. The flare up pictures you see are when not using gbr— a great amount of stress and a depressive episode. I committed to slow down my skincare last year and reduced to only using thermal water, serum, moisturizer and spf (only during the day). Therefore, for all my oily prone sensitive skin human beans struggling, I see you and I’m here for you. This is not only because I adore Krave Beauty, it’s a honest review from someone who went through so much pain due to acne. GBR is my best friend, my holy grail and the only product I run to always. Much love!!!
