The Way I Used It
I used it both day and night, but if my skin is okay, I wear this only at night.
One or two pumps are enough for me.
Because this serum is thick, I used this right before moisturizer, and if I have other serums that I used with this one, this GBR will be the last serum I wore between the serums.

The Packaging, Scent, & Texture

This GBR came in a cute glass pump bottle, the packaging is simple, minimal, with green and white and a little black font on the bottle. The packaging though simple, but it gives off the luxurious feeling. The pump in this serum is sleek and easy to pump it.
It has no fragrance, but it has that Tamanu smell (i think). Honestly, I'm not really a fan of this serum. But the scent doesn't lingers, so I'm okay with it though I admit it was hard at first to adjust with the smell.
The serum is in light green mint colour, it is so pretty! I love this serum colour, Somehow, it makes me feel calm just looking at the colour.
The texture is thick cream like, at first I did feel it was a bit heavy for my skin, at that time my skin was well hydrated and hadn't had any problem. But when my skin had problem and dehydrated, my skin loves the thickness of this serum, it sits well on my skin, and I feel like it protects and repairs my skin.

My Thoughts On The Result

When I first tried it on, I did not immediately love it, because at that time my skin was fine and had no problem, so this one felt a bit heavy. I tried for a week, and my skin adjusted with the serum, but I didn't see any result yet.
I stopped for awhile.
And when my skin started to feel dehydrated and problematic, THIS SERUM IS MY SAVIOUR!
Love how this serum help my skin improvement.

This serum helps to hydrate and moisturize at the same time, soothed my irritated skin, and my skin felt firm and supple after continuosly using this. I can feel that it repaired my skin well!

For me, this serum is really a good treatment serum when my skin had problems.

I do really enjoy using this!

Rating: 4.7/5


This Krave Beauty GBR is a PR from Krave Beauty, but my review is what I had experience.
Please note that YMMV.

I wanted to try it but I'm probably allergic to one ingredient because I got peanut allergy and it might cause cross allergy with tamanu oil, still Krave is a great brand
