As someone who has always had very sensitive skin, it can be a challenge for me to find beauty and cleansing products that don’t dry out my skin or make me break out. I was extremely happy with the results I got from Kari Gran’s Cleansing Oil, Hydrating Tonic, Essential Serum and Lip Whip Balm.
The Cleansing Oil, Hydrating Tonic and Essential Serum can be used as a skin care system, or the elements can be used separately for different purposes. While using the products as a system takes a bit longer than using most products you’ll find at a drugstore, it’s definitely worth it.

In the evenings, you massage the Cleansing Oil into your skin and then steam it off with a hot towel. The Kari Gran products are made with natural, organic, sustainably-harvested materials, including lovely smelling essential oils, so while you’re steaming away the Cleansing Oil, you’re basically also getting an aromatherapy treatment. It was seriously one of the most relaxing things I think I’ve ever done.
Step two of the system has you mist a few pumps of the Hydrating Tonic into your palm and add a pump of the Essential serum and you’ve got yourself a moisturizer! After massaging the moisturizer into your skin, you’re done and ready to get your beauty sleep.
My skin felt incredibly soft after the first time I used the cleansing system. I loved the way the natural essential oils brought a glow to my skin, and I was so thankful to find something that didn’t dry me out or make me break out. It also did a great job of removing the stubborn makeup my normal skin care routine usually left behind.
I also really enjoyed that you can use the products separately. When I’m getting ready in the morning, I love how fast it is to just spray my face with the Hydrating Tonic rather than applying a moisturizer and waiting for it to sink in before continuing on with my makeup routine. The Hydrating Tonic also does a great job of setting mineral makeup.

The Essential Serum also has an added bonus for those who wear mineral powder foundation – it can be mixed with the powder to create a custom tinted moisturizer.
In addition to the skin care system, I was lucky enough to be able to try Kari Gran’s Lip Whip Balm. The Lip Whip Balm is an essential oil-infused tinted lip gloss and balm combination that comes in an easy-to-carry pot. The one I tried was pink-tinted peppermint balm, and I loved it. I’m a habitual lip balm user, and I find that a lot of glosses either make my lips chapped or just feel sticky and uncomfortable. The Lip Whip Balm was very lightweight and had a very sheer pink tone that would look nice layered over other products as well as on its own. It didn’t have the sticky, heavy feeling that many glosses have, and it also had the added benefit of hydrating my lips rather than drying them out.
Overall, I loved the results the Kari Gran Skin Care system and Lip Whip Balm gave me. The skin care system was like nothing I’d experienced from a drug store product before, and it’s definitely worth the investment. And because all of the products are made from natural, organic, sustainably-harvested materials, you can rest easy knowing your skin care system didn’t harm the environment.
