Krave Beauty Great Barrier Relief Review

I believe the Great Barrier Relief is what really put Krave Beauty on the map. I’ve heard rave reviews about this product and was intrigued by the concept of a product that repairs and protects your skin’s barrier against environmental aggressors. Since I already have all the core essentials in my skincare routine, I decided to give the Great Barrier Relief a try as a supplement to my skincare routine. My biggest skin woe right now (and always) is adult hormonal acne. Although Great Barrier Relief makes no promises to be a remedy for hormonal acne, anything with really clean ingredients that can brighten up my complexion and dull acne scars is a win in my book. It contains niacinamide, Tamanu oil, Safflower oil, and Rosehip oil. Read more about the ingredients list HERE.

I was surprised by the texture and consistency of this serum. It’s creamy and definitely nourishing and I can tell it contains oils but it does not leave a greasy or oily residue at all. I would say the finish is pretty matte and leaves my face soft and ever so slightly sticky. The scent is really earthy, with a hint of seaweed, but I really enjoy how natural it smells.

Now onto the performance of this highly-rated serum! I use the serum nightly and I could see results pretty much immediately. The morning after my first use, my skin looked really plump, smooth, and bright. My complexion looked more even and I also felt like my face was more hydrated. I’ve been using this serum for a few months now (about 2 large drops a night all over my face) and I’ve had no signs of irritation. My skin feels calmer and more balanced, more radiant, and overall much healthier! I’m a huge fan of this product and I will be repurchasing this over and over again. No matter what skin type or concerns you have, this product will definitely be a great supplement to your current routine.
