Kristen Noel Crawley-founded label KNC Beauty, known for its clean masks for your lips, face, and eyes, has been praised by clean beauty enthusiasts alike since its launch in 2016.

KNC Beauty’s award-winning retinol-infused eye mask aids in stimulating blood flow while ingredients such as aloe help soothe and reduce redness. The brand recommends using it two to three days during the week for 15-20 minutes, and afterward, rub in any remaining essence in your eye area. Other skin-loving ingredients are rosemary extract, hyaluronic acid, and rose flower oil among others. Joining the retinol-infused eye mask is the Leaf Eye Mask—released in October, which helps to restore the skin’s elasticity and lock in moisture. The mask is formulated with cactus extract, green tea leaf, and cucumber; combined, the hero trio is perfect for improving dry, tired skin and calming puffy under eyes.

Elsewhere, the label’s collagen-infused lip mask is the perfect treatment for those plumped, kissable lips you’ve always wanted. The lip mask contains moisturizing ingredients like rose flower oil, vitamin e, and bitter cherry extract, free of petroleum or other harmful chemicals on the no-list. KNC recommends that your lips are clean and dry before using it for 15-20 minutes. The mask also serves as a great primer for lipsticks, “especially mattes,” the brand shares. Elsewhere, KNC Beauty’s highly-coveted Supa Scrub Set can be used to exfoliate, prime, and prep your lips.

Available in two flavors, KNC’s Supa Balm is packed with essential fatty acids to keep your lips looking super plump. Ingredients like moringa and kukui oil as well as kokum and shea butter provide a deep moisturization and prevent drying of lips. The lip balm is available in “Mint” and “OG Rose”—both are vegan and preservative-free. For facial needs, the brand introduced biodegradable face masks dubbed “Big Drip,” “Big Glo,” and “Big Chill” available in a set of three. The easy-to-apply mask was made to hydrate, brighten and soothe while providing big moisturizing benefits.

Last year, KNC Beauty teamed up with iconic streetwear label A Bathing Ape, which features staple products such as the brand’s Lip Mask and Supa Scrub Set outfitted in a classic pink BAPE print. “Being able to use this iconic design and apply it to the ethos of KNC Beauty has been a wonderfully fulfilling experience for me,” Kristen shared in regard to the collaboration. The respective items come encapsulated in a one-of-a-kind travel kit, which also dons a unique BAPE print and co-branding. It’s not the first of the label’s highly-coveted collaboration; in November, KNC also teamed up with Champion for a capsule collection comprised of reverse-weave hoodies, crewnecks, sweats, and more.

Retailing between $22 and $185 USD, you can shop the label’s range on the KNC Beauty website or at partnering retailers such as Sephora.

Elsewhere in beauty, clean makeup brand Saie Beauty creates conscious formulas that don’t sacrifice luxury.
