ABOUT THIS BRAND
What started out as a hobby making luxury lip balms in her kitchen turned into a luxury makeup and skincare line in 2011 after Kari was diagnosed with an autoimmune thyroid disorder. With a newfound clarity of purpose, Kari synched up with her longtime friend and business partner, Lisa Strain to launch a no-nonsense, pure and functional skincare and makeup line using only organic, wild harvested and non-GMO ingredients. Universally anhydrous, each product in the tightly edited system is formulated without water, fillers or synthetic preservatives and is designed to multi-task to reduce clutter and promote simplicity.
Today, Kari still makes and pours every product by hand, staying intimately involved with the formulation process to ensure her line delivers only what is essential, effective, and timeless. Consisting of 5 skincare formulas, Kari Gran is slow beauty that promotes simplicity rather than catering to marketing cycles. Affectionately referred to as ‘The Little Black Dress’ of eco-skincare, Kari Gran makeup invites us to ‘wear our skin’ with the same ease, comfort, and grace as our favorite LBD.
My skin went through a very, very dry stage and it seemed that nothing would plump up my skin. I happened to have the Kari Gran Essential Balm from a prior BH order and it seemed like it would be rich enough. So, I incorporated it into my evening routine as the last step. Wow. What a lovely scent. Plus, just a little bit of balm warmed up on my fingers and pressed into my skin really gives me the moisture I need. Now I use this as a weekly plumper on the days when I need it.
