Kari Gran is an eco luxe natural skin care line made with organic, wild harvested and non-gmo ingredients. Kari founded her brand out of necessity. As a beauty junkie, she took note of what was passing through her skin after her diagnosis with an auto immune disease. She was compelled to create the products she desired, while making them simple, effective, natural, and safe.
All Kari Gran products are cruelty free, paraben and toxin free.
I’ve been using the Kari Gran skin care starter kit($35), which is composed of a 15ml glass pump of Cleansing Oil, a 15ml spray of Lavender or Rose Hydrating Tonic, and 10ml of Essential Serum. The cleansing oil is luxurious and smells beautiful, while being an effective and gentle makeup remover or morning cleanser. I love the way it makes my skin feel, completely clean but not stripped. The Cleansing Oil is sunflower oil based, with avocado, castor seed and lavender oils. The Hydrating Tonic I chose was the Rose, which contains aloe vera leaf distillate, glycerin, and rose oil. I spray my face twice after cleansing, then immediately apply the Essential Serum. The serum has many skin loving ingredients, including camellia seed and rosehip oils, calendula, arnica, and jojoba oils. The serum is gentle and nourishing, and can be applied all over the face, eyes, neck, and decollete.
Kari Gran may be most well-known for her iconic Lip Whips($15-$20). These soothing buttery lip treatments come in a Naked version, or you can experiment with tints, colors, and scents. I have the Naked Whip, which is my go to overnight treatment. It’s a must have for cooler weather! The Cinnamon Pimenta Berry is just as soothing, but adds a hint of pink shine. Exfoliate your lips before bed, apply this over night and you will wake up to the softest lips ever.
