I’ve tried hundreds of skincare products over the years and have never experienced anything like Kari Gran Skincare. I’m amazed at how dewy, healthy and clear my skin looks and feels. Plus, the system is so easy to use. I never want to part with these little black bottles of brilliance. Kari Gran has set a new bar when it comes to organic skincare. -Brandie Gilliam, Founder of Organic Beauty Talk
As a woman who suffered with acne for 20+ years I never got compliments on my skin. When I transitioned into the wellness world and began using clean beauty products my skin finally began to clear. For the first time ever, I would get compliments here and there. So when I get two compliments in a row, it is a BIG deal! Kari Gran created a beautifully simple and luxurious line that is giving me such a natural glow. I felt so beautiful today just in my own skin with no makeup and a dab of the delicious tinted gloss. I help women get their “confident glow” back and I am so excited to recommend this line to my clients as it’s going to help give that to them. -Laurisa Truemper, CHHC, AADP, Holistic Health & Clear Skin Expert
For the first time my skin is learning how to balance itself to a normal state. My skin is extremely dry and I’ve suffered from dry patches on my face, neck and hairline for years. Now, they’re almost all gone! I love using the Kari Gran Skincare and can’t get home quick enough at night to cleanse. It’s such an experience and so easy…even between running two businesses and three small children. I also use the mineral powder and I get more compliments on my skin now more then ever. -DeSheri McClure, Licensed Esthetician & Owner of Urban Deshi Wellness Spa
Pros: easy to use, no mess or water splashes, nourishing, great for all skin types, anti-aging, leaves skin soft and supple, excellent ingredients, elegant & recyclable packaging, dark bottles, waterless formulation to ensure maximum benefits
Cons: Although it keeps skin clear and wards of pimples on highly blemish-prone skin, we here at OBT haven’t tested it out on full-blown, broken-out acne skin.
Performance: Kari Gran Skincare consists of three easy steps with their Cleansing Oil, Hydrating Tonic and Essential Serum. The Cleansing Oil removes dirt, grime and makeup while balancing the skin’s natural oil production. The Hydrating Tonic is soothing and doesn’t strip or dry skin. It comes in two scents, Rose or Lavender. The scents have nothing to do with skin type or benefit and truly based simply on scent preference. The Essential Serum is nourishing with a potent blend of 15 plant and essential oils.
Summary: Kari Gran Skincare provides beautiful deep cleansing for all skin types.
How I Use Kari Gran Skincare: Evening - Apply 8 – 10 pumps of Cleansing Oil into palm of hand. Liberally massage onto clean, dry face and neck. Apply a warm (not scalding) washcloth to face and let cool. Rinse and repeat 3 times. Gently wipe face and neck with the washcloth to remove excess oil and provide a light exfoliation. Mist 3 – 4 pumps of hydrating tonic in the palm of your hand and add one pump of serum. Rub hands together and apply to skin. Done. Morning - No need to cleanse in the morning, gently pat face and neck with warm damp washcloth.Mist 3 – 4 pumps of hydrating tonic in the palm of your hand and add one pump of serum. Rub hands together and apply to skin. Done.
