The first thing I noticed about this oil is that it didn’t break my skin out (so many products do, have always had problem skin having to take Roaccutane in my 20s and now in my late 30s my skin has changed a lot since pregnancy and finding products that work for me has taken a long long time) After using it consistently for a couple of months now, my skin is brighter, smoother and healthier looking and feeling. Absolutely delighted to have discovered it.
I have tried many (untinted) natural mineral sunscreens. Whilst not perfect for my skin, this is probably the best one I have come across so far. Pros include the minimal ingredients, no essential oils, no greasy finish (it has a Matt finish which I typically prefer), higher UVA protection than most SPF 30 mineral sunscreens I have tried so far, doesn’t leave a white cast, very gentle on the skin including around the eye area, and has not caused my skin to breakout. The downside for me however has been that whilst it doesn’t leave an obvious white cast, my skin does definitely look a few shades lighter (I have Indian skin), which I am not too keen on. In addition as I have combination skin, I am finding that I am experiencing some flakiness on drier areas of my skin. I am therefore continuing to use this on the days when I am mostly at home, and to use around my eyes.
This is a light moisturiser, which absorbs quickly into the skin with a matt finish. Skin feels soft after use.
First time using an oil based cleanser morning and evening. My skin feels cleansed after use and it hasn’t disturbed my combination skin. It removes sun screen (including mineral sun screen). I don’t wear makeup often but I have tested it out on makeup. I then used a face cloth to check whether any traces of makeup remained after washing off the cleanser. It effectively removed all of the eye makeup, very pigmented lipstick, and concealer. I did however find that I needed to use the face cloth to remove traces of the blusher powder I had applied on my cheeks, which weren’t noticeable on my face after washing it but appeared on the face cloth. Overall very satisfied. I use this as a double cleanser in the evenings, and in the mornings I apply directly to a wet face as a single cleanse.
I love the ingredients in this, that it’s been designed to avoid the dreaded white cast and shine from usual physical sunscreens. However maybe because it is designed to be matte, I do find it pretty drying. I would typically use vitamin C serum followed by SPF on a morning but now I find even with a thick layer of moisturiser after the vitamin c and before the sunscreen, I can still be left quite dry, although it’s usually sufficient enough. Still the best physical, non toxic sunscreen I’ve came across and would definitely recommend!
My super reactive fair freckled acne type skin loved this SPF30, I think it actually improved my skin! Completely over the moon with all your products so far. Thank you Kri.
I spent a long time looking for suncream which contained no fragrance, no alcohol denat, no chemical filters and also had minimal ingredients. I have to say that this covers all of those things. I did notice it contains cetearyl alcohol which I hope doesn't end up becoming clogging and am not sure if this product is officialy labelled non-comodogenic...if anyone could clarify this that would be great. Will also add that the cream is pleasant to apply. One thing is that I have brown skin (Indian) and there is a slight white cast which in some lights makes me look a bit chalky. But because this formula is very compatible with my other requirements it isn't too much of an issue. Another last wish is that it was a better price for the quantity. I'm trying to wear suncream daily and I just feel like I'll have to go through many pots of this a year. But all in all I appreciate the effort made to make a product without fragrance.
I’m a ‘mature’ lady and have tried many oils over the years, so was very sceptical. However, wanting to break away from the big brands I decided to give this a go. Very glad I did as I do notice an even-ing in skin tone and there is a definite improvement in its elasticity. The other plus is that it goes in and leaves no oily residue. Well done Kri.
I’ve been using the serum and moisturiser for 5 months now and can really see a difference in my skin. It is smoother and fine lines aren’t as noticeable. I’m 48 and my younger friend recently commented that my skin looks amazing 😁
I like the texture of this sunscreen - it's smooth, evenly distributes on my skin and leaves a matte finish. However, I find that it does leave a bit of a white caste on my medium dark skin (MAC shades NC40-42), especially where I have some hyperpigmentation, so I only wear it when working from home. It doesn't sting under my eyes, which is great. I find it a bit drying, which is fine for the oily areas on my combination skin, but not so great for the dryer areas which also have more hyperpigmentation. I love that there's minimal ingredients in it, but I hope they do a tinted version with a few different shades.
Feels good on skin. Dispenses easily and absorbs well. I like skincare to be simple and no-fuss - this is but it also conditions my skin beautifully and keeps it looking healthy.
Had this bought me for as a present last November and am still using probably will last another month such a great product and such great value for money so decided to purchase another . Would highly recommend.
I have been using this every morning and find that it helps to blur the lines that have started appearing on my forehead. I have combination skin with breakouts from time to time but I don’t find this oil too heavy for my skin and it hasn’t caused any breakouts. I like that the Kri products do not contain parfum or essential oils like other natural brands I have tried / come across.
I tried the tester of this and I was really impressed so I bought the full size. I wanted a mineral sunscreen that left no whitecast on my mixed race (SE asian-british) skin. This is a lovely thick consistency that is easy to massage into the skin, at first it seems like its way too much but once you rub it in and leave it for the recommended 10-15mins (all sunscreens should be left to sit before applying makeup) it has sunk in and leaves the skin looking moisturised and feeling lovely. I find it even has a brightening effect under my eyes and provides an amazing base under make up. I have normal skin that doesn't react easily but its so gentle and this brand formulates their products so thoughtfully I wouldn't be worried about reactions but what is great is you can try the tester before commiting to the full size. I tend to use this over my Kri Backuchiol oil in the mornings and it works really well together. Well done!
When I say oily and shine and adding a sunscreen which contains alcohol to dry out and hurt the skin barrier, I wasn't doing myself any favours. I searched high and low for a sunscreen that was physical, no alcohol, for acne blemish prone skin (I nearly found one...but the beeswax just seem to sit on my face and the oil went into overdrive). This sunscreen is lovely as the final step and absorbs well and I don't have the oily shine, I actually want to top up! The glass jars look so smart as well. A great formulation!
I'm blown away by the simplicity and effectiveness of this sunscreen. I adore how comfortably it sits on my sensitive skin.
I've been looking for sunscreen like this... forever! I don't wear makeup and am photo sensitive due to health condition so sunscreen has to work. This pot of sunscreen protects, feels great on my skin, looks natural. It simply does everything it should without added unnecessary fuss! It's perfect...thankyou 💫
I have tried so many body oils for my extremely dry skin on my lower legs. This is the only oil that has solved the problem of my dry skin. No more scaly and flaking skin. Lovely fresh aroma. Worth every penny.
It's a nice serum, it sinks in quickly and feels hydrating without being sticky. My skin recently decided to throw a fit, so it's nice to find something that doesn't seem to irritate it.
This is super hydrating and smoothing. It plumps up my skin, and along with other Kri products is helping to smooth my skin and make me more fresh faced. It absorbs quickly and easily too.
This is great for removing make up without stripping your skin. Leaves my skin lovely and soft and super clean.
I got this cleanser free with a purchase. It is amazing. Removes all make up but the most important thing is that your skin feels supple and hydrated after using. It doesn’t feel stripped or the skin feel tight like some cleansers do. I love it and would def purchase again.
I have tried lots of different face sunscreens. Too many cause more problems than they solve, from greasy sticky skin, bring out spots and not looking right on my skin. I am able to use this sunscreen everyday as part of my morning routine. Then I reapply later as I need too. I am happy to recommend this sunscreen.
Love this beautiful, soothing and smoothing product. I have been using it daily since I discovered it around 3 years ago. Lovely results under the rose-hip oil.
I have only been using for a few weeks, my skin feels softer and my complexion fresher. I have older skin and am happy with results. Would recommend.
