KraveBeauty Great Barrier Relief - 45ml

Is a skin-soothing serum that restores your damaged skin barrier while evening out your complexion. This nourishing formula offers irritated skin a reset button by using tamanu oil and other ingredients that mimic a healthy barrier to replenish what your skin lacks.

It is suitable for those with irritated skin. Specifically:
who washes their face too often, using harsh acne treatments or anti-aging products too often, whose skin is constantly dehydrated, with constant redness and dry patches, sensitive to many skincare products, has stressful lifestyle, looking to get rid of hyperpigmentation, has aging or mature skin, has skin problems associated with a damaged skin barrier.

How to use:
Apply one or two pumps of Great Barrier Relief before your moisturizer or in replacement of your moisturizer.
Just reach for Great Barrier Relief whenever your skin is feeling irritated and don’t forget to remove those sensitizing products from your routine.

The following steps only apply to those who have severely damaged skin-barrier that literally every product they apply stings and irritate.
  • Drop every skincare product you’re using.
  • Take a break from cleansing, makeup and sunscreen during this period.
  • If you need to wash your face, use lukewarm water and gently rinse.
  • Use distilled water if you live in a place where tap water is too harsh or unfiltered!
  • Stop sunscreen use as the chemical UV filters can easily sink in and further sensitize the skin and nowadays, most conventional mineral sunscreens use nano/micro UV filters which can easily get absorbed into the skin too. Furthermore sunscreens that are formulated with other potential irritants can exacerbate the problem.
  • Use Great Barrier Relief morning and night until your skin has reset and feels relieved and relaxed.
  • Start adding back your core essentials once your skin is healed: Cleanser, Moisturiser and SPF.
Key ingredients:
Tamanu Oil
Extracted from the Tamanu nuts, it's an oil that research shows has remarkable skin-regenerative properties and was traditionally used to heal wounds and cure various skin problems and ailments. it eliminates most of hyperpigmentation that are sunspots, acne scars, other discoloration far more effectively than any retinol or vitamin C ingredient.
Safflower Oil & Rosehip Seed Oil
Two incredible plant-based oils that have amazing skin-nourishing benefits and are higher in linoleic acid than oleic acid. Studies demonstrate that oils rich in linoleic acid help restore damaged skin-barriers. The infusion of these two oils results in a high linoleic acid concentration that creates a light consistency, which melts right into your skin without the greasiness.
NMF + Ceramides, Phytosterol, Squalane
A cocktail of ingredients that is meant to mimic a healthy skin barrier. These elements are naturally found in our skin when it is not compromised and in a restful state of zen. When life gets too stressful and your skin is put on edge, these super ingredients escape from your skin and leave it vulnerable. Replenish your skin barrier with this restorative combination.
Also known as Vitamin B3, this ingredient is the super ingredient in the skincare. Highly effective for barrier reparation, anti-aging, skin-brightening, and even acne prevention. What’s more, it’s also one of the most gentle active ingredients that delivers great skin benefits without any skin irritation, making it accessible for all skin types to give a chance.

KRAVEBEAUTY Great Barrier Relief - 45ml

No breakouts since using great barrier relief

Been using it for just under 2 weeks now, and my skin has calmed down considerably, no further breakouts. The scent took a few days to get used to but that’s just a minor issue compared to the benefits of the product. Will deffo repurchase when finished.

Saviour Product

I'm on my second bottle of GBR and I'll be repurchasing this product until the end of time. I first bought GBR when I ruined my skin barrier back in September. I've used it religiously day and night for 4.5 month and honestly it's saved my skin. I noticed an immediate calming relief after the first use - its incredibly nourishing and moisturising (notably from the tamanu oil) and soothes dry patches and redness. After 4 weeks, I noticed an improvement in skin texture and a reduction in breakouts due to its sebum reducing ingredients (niacinamide). This product does have a smell, but after a week you become nose blind to it. I use GBR after cleansing and applying Rovectin Activating Treatment Lotion (great for barrier repair) and hyaluronic acid, and will sometimes follow with a moisturiser, though during the day I don't find this a necessary step. The only critique would be the price for the quantity you get. All in all, I would absolutely recommend this product for anyone looking to heal a damaged skin barrier, or even to offer hydration to dehydrated, dull skin. For anyone with acne prone skin (like myself) this is a totally safe product to use and shouldn't break you out - don't be afraid of the oil content in this product as oils are amazing for acne prone skin.

Amazing serum

calms my skin right away! Helps me when I have a hormonal breakout and my skin feels releaved after I use it.

Skin Saviour

I wanted to wait a little while before reviewing this product, as I believe it takes a few months to really see the benefits of a new product. I had a severe acne flare up last year and bought the Matcha cleanser along with the SPF & Great Barrier Relief. This serum will now be a staple, ready to save the day whenever I get a whiff of dry or aggravated skin. I can’t recommend this product enough, and can say it has definitely helped soothe my skin into recovery. However, the price is a little steep, and if you use this everyday you’ll run out within a month or two. If you’re suffering with dry or angry skin, please give this a go.
