Best sunscreen ever

I have been on a long journey trying to find a sunscreen that feels good, works, has low comedogenic and healthy ingredients. I am so thankful that this brand exists and makes this product-it feels like a face oil that melts in well and give your skin a nice subtle glow. Even though it’s zinc there is no annoying white cast and it doesn’t feel like I’ve coated my skin which is how most natural sunscreens feel like. If there is a slight white tint it goes away after 5 minutes. Don’t forget to shake the bottle! Thank you for this amazing product once again!

Wonderful Products

Kari Gran products are effective and I love the simple regime. I am an esthetician and results are what I’m after. I have been using the line personally and professionally for the past five years. Love it!

Best product I've tried

Essential serum is my favorite daily skin care product. I love the fact that it's versatile (you can use it as a light or a deep moisturizer), it's feels nourishing on the skin and it smells heavenly. My skin feels great and looks supple and glowing. I highly recommend it.

Must have for my ritual!

My essential serum is part of my ritual every day. I only use a small amount once a day and it works with my dry skin. Living in Arizona it helps a great deal! Thank you Kari!
