About this Brand
We’re obsessed with Kari Gran’s hydrating lip whips – they’re luscious and luxe and smell heavenly. It’s hard to try Kari Gran and not fall in love! Their hand-poured products use only the finest naturally derived, organic, wild-harvested, and non-GMO ingredients.
Kari Gran and Lisa Strain co-founded the company in 2010 after Lisa convinced Kari to move beyond the small batches of clean, eco-luxe products she was making in her own Seattle kitchen. Kari, a self-described “beauty junkie,” had been diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder and gotten interested in clean beauty when she realized that what she puts on her skin affects her health.
- Fabulous clean products include the hydrating, heavenly lip whip
- Made without petrochemicals, parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, chemical additives, known toxins, preservatives or synthetic fragrance
- Commitment to environmental responsibility and sustainability includes recycling and using less packaging – and encouraging retail partners to do the same
- Based in Seattle, Washington
From Kari Gran:
“At Kari Gran, we consider ourselves the anti-beauty beauty company. We believe that beauty is not measured by an age, a dollar sign, or a stereotype and that women are not figures to be fixed, but to be celebrated. When it comes to caring for yourself and your skin, we champion healthy prevention over critical correction.”
- Are made with premium organic and naturally derived ingredients
- Arrive in beautiful, eco-luxe packaging
- Contain no added water to ensure ingredients are in a potent and effective state
First off, I love lavender! The mini kit oils and face spray have a not-too-much lavender scent that calms my nervous system, especially great to use just before bed. A little of this product goes a long way, so even tho' it's a mini kit, it's lasting me weeks with regular use. And for travel (even local mini trips during COVID...), the bottles have clever clip-ons that keep the pumps from decanting the contents all over the suitcase. Best Mother's Day gift I've had in years!
I love this cleansing system! I first got this mini kit to try out these products. I loved them and have since ordered the full sizes for every day use. It is so hydrating for my dry skin without leaving a greasy feeling. I ordered another mini kit to take with me wherever I go.
This kit was great for about the first week, but then it broke me out all around my chin. I stopped using the sunscreen after about two days because it was really greasy, left a weird green tint, and didn't sink into my skin completely. I've never cleansed with an oil before, and I'm not sure that I would again as I think that's what was breaking me out. The serum and tonic were great though, and I absolutely love the smell of all the products! It reminds me of the smell of Aveda products.
I could not use it because the smell was so awful and it got worse the longer I kept it on. This formula needs a major overhaul.
Lots of people love this stuff, but it's not for me. First. the bottles are annoying. I press the top and stuff comes out, but sometimes I get two drops, real close together, and then other times the stuff will run down the side of the bottle and drip into the sink. It does moisturize well, but the mess it makes, the sort of odd smell and the unpleasant difficulty using it make me say no
