A light-as-water moisturizer that feels like a burst of refreshing hydration on the face. Formulated with less than 9 ingredients, including calming Oat Extract, it balances out your super serums and targeted treatments with some oh so simple hydration. Dive in.

A Break for Overloaded, Oversensitized, Over It Skin

Between active acids, potent patches, and concentrated creams, your skin is working its ass off. Until one day, it happens: burnout. You feel super sensitive, you break out, and you can’t even touch your skin without wincing. What now? The answer’s simple—Oat So Simple. It was created to be the no-fuss, just-right moisturizer that perfectly complements our supercharged routines.

The no-frills formula gives your skin the gentle calming it wants and the essential hydration it needs to go from “so over this” to “glad that’s over.” Whew!

PETA-certified vegan and cruelty-free.

Oats: Soothes irritation and rebalances stressed skin.
Trehalose: Helps bind water to skin to retain moisture.
Squalane: Conditioning and moisturizing agent that locks in moisture.

The color and texture of Oat So Simple Water Cream may naturally vary slightly from batch to batch. No worries! This is a normal occurrence when using naturally-derived ingredients and does not impact the efficacy of the formula.


Pair with Great Barrier Relief Serum
When you’re craving: Extra moisture
Why it works: Water-based cream to hydrate, oil-based serum to seal it in.
How to use: Can be mixed together or applied in any order.
Extra tip: Apply moisturizer liberally but apply serum in layers to prevent greasiness.

Step 1: Clean and separate! Before recycling your Oat So Simple Water Cream, make sure the jar is rinsed and free of product.

Step 2: Investigate! The Oat So Simple jar is made from PET [1], which is completely recyclable and is the most recycled plastic worldwide. The cap, disc, and spatula are made from PP [5]. Not all recycling programs accept PP so we recommend checking with your local recycling.

Step 3: Recycle! If both type 1 and type 5 plastics are both recyclable in your area, we recommend just throwing the entire container in the recycling bin. The labels or glue can be recycled too, so no need to remove those.

Materials Used
Jar: PET [1]
Cap, spatula: PP [5]
Disc: HDPE [5]
Box: FSC paper and soy based inks

We Had One Job

Oat So Simple was the creation of 2,300+ community members, 3 years in the lab, and a whole lot of energy drinks. Together, we crafted the formula with the goal of being just a really good moisturizer. Not bad, huh?

Looking for Something Long Term

Sure, morning hydration is fun but are they going to be there for you at the end of the day? Luckily, Oat So Simple has plant-derived Squalane and Trehalose to keep you sated and hydrated all day long.

On Cloud 9

Oat So Simple has such an airy, featherweight texture that it instantly absorbs and makes itself right at home with your skin. It’s like dunking your face in a cloud.

Exhibits A Through You

Sophia

Skin Concern: acne, dryness, sensitivity

Age: 18-24

“I've been using the Oat So Simple Water Cream for about a year now, ever since I found it in a YouTube review that was for people with acne prone skin. It's really refreshing in the morning and really calming and soothing at night. I wake up and my skin is definitely less irritated and my acne has not flared up.”

Brianna

Skin Concern: acne, dark spots, dryness

Age: 25-34

“I started using Oat So Simple Water Cream because my skin got completely compromised when I started using way too many acids... Between this moisturizer and the Great Barrier Relief, they completely reset my skin... Oat So Simple Water Cream is just the go-to whenever I need to reset and have my skin looking its best.”

Kendra

Skin Concern: acne, sensitivity

Age: 18-24

“I have been using the Oat So Simple Water Cream for about two to three years, ever since a junior in college. With all the stress, lack of sleep, and forgetting my skincare routine, all the moisturizers I would use wouldn't really work. My cousin told me about KraveBeauty and how their Oat So Simple Water Cream has very few ingredients and is very lightweight.”

Ally

Skin Concern: dullness, pores

Age: 18-24

“I really love the Oat So Simple Water Cream because it's universal and packed with emollients and simple ingredients. I would definitely recommend this to all of my friends because it fits all skin types. Plus, it just bursts onto your skin and it doesn't even feel like you're using a really heavy moisturizer in order for it to do the job.”

    Good but not for me

    Lightweight and soothing but it left my skin feeling tight after using :( maybe a little too light for a moisturizer? I really wanted to love it

    Really wanted to love it

    I used this for several months and even repurchased a second one when I ran out the first time. I had always known I had combo skin with oily t-zone and dry everywhere else on my face. I noticed that my skin would be pilling and flaky by mid-day after using this cream in the morning. I think this moisturizer + my sunscreen was leading to some drier spots and pilling. I've stopped using this product but I had no other complaints. Doesn't leave my skin feeling sticky, was lightweight, had a easy to use spoon, overall really wanted to love it but wasn't for me T_T

    A new routine staple

    This is a VERY nice Moisturizer. It's basis and light, yet always leaves me waking up feeling soft. Love that it has a very light, natural smell. I also love that it's a decent size for a decent price.

    Redness not good.

    Redness there's no doubt about it. Recyclable plastic should have side effects as well in your product.

    My Honest Review

    I like this cream. I am 28 and suffer from fungal acne. I love the ingredients. My skin is clearing up more. However this cream isn't as hydrating as my skin probably needs. I apply it and it feels hydrating, but throughout the day my skin will feel somewhat dry. It could be the extreme weather temps here as well adding to this. It is a gentle lightweight moisturizer. I have combo skin. Giving my honestly feedback. Thank you for this product!
