“I love how KraveBeauty took a different approach from most brands and took out all the unnecessary ingredients and minimized it to just 10 very beneficial ingredients, oats being one of them. The texture is very lightweight [and] non-greasy. Due to the simplicity of the moisturizer, you're able to adjust it and personalize it to suit your needs. Depending on how my skin's feeling, I love to add a hydrating serum, oil, or even a booster. Big shout out to KraveBeauty for making this beauty. It is my forever cream!”

How to Use

How to Use

Step 1

Start with clean, dry skin. Apply your serum first.

Step 2

Scoop out the desired amount and massage into the face.

Step 3

Wait for total absorption (alright, it’s probably done) before applying SPF.

Free Tip

After a day in the sun, apply Oat So Simple to any red or hot areas for an instant cooldown.

I wanted to love it

I have tried to make this moisturizer work twice now. I originally bought it when it was released back in the fall of 2019. This definitely did not work during the winter, and left my skin very dry when used by itself. I decided to try it again this summer since where I live is very hot and humid. Again, this moisturizer is just not occlusive enough on its own and leaves my skin tight and itchy unless I use it with another product. If you look at the ingredient list, there are no occlusive ingredients to lock in moisture, so it’s actually going to dry your skin out. I love Krave’s products, especially GBR and Matcha Hemp, but this is just a pass for me. I don’t think it’s a bad product; I love the texture and the simplicity. It just doesn’t do what I hoped it would. I would love to see them either reformulate this to be more occlusive or come out with a night cream some day!

LOVEEE

This is the only moisturizer that doesn’t trigger fungal acne on my forehead and is able to hydrate my dry cheeks. I’m going to buy back ups soon because I’m scared of running out... that’s how much I love it !!! It is so hard to find fungal acne safe products. Hope they come out with more in the future.

Made my skin oily

Not for me. Even when I use a small amount my skin became so oily within few minutes.

Leaves skin feeling tight and dry

It not only didn’t moisturize my skin it made it feel more dehydrated. I decided to give the moisturizer a try because I really like their face wash. I’m not comfortable gifting this product to my family or friends either. I tried layering a thicker moisturizer on top but it still left my skin feeling dryer than it normally would with the thicker moisturizer alone. ?? Weird right? I think my last option is to try using it as a face wash
