For self care you can feel good about, (and only takes 15 minutes), look no further than the insta-famous lip and eye masks created by KNC Beauty.
Founded by LA-based Kristen Noel Crawley, KNC beauty is the all natural alternative to Asia’s effective, but chemical-heavy, beauty masks. While in Tokyo for a Dior show, Crawley discovered lip masks, but she also discovered they were created with chemicals she didn’t want anywhere near her lips or face. So, she decided to make her own. And, here at West of Wild, we’re so glad she did.
Eye Masks That Actually Work?
Searching for effective under-eye masks is like finding a needle in haystack. With so many options on the market, the search often ends in disappointment and a jaded view towards insta-worthy beauty products.
So when KNC under eye mask actually left our crow’s feet feeling hydrated, plumped, and less noticeable, and the lip mask provided a perfectly smooth canvas for our favorite clean lipstick, we were pleasantly surprised.
All Natural Retinol & Collagen Masks
The KNC eye masks that gave us starry eyes are as effective as they are fun to wear -and dido for the KNC lip mask.
The retinol-infused shooting star shaped eye mask curves ever so slightly to fit perfectly over un-wanted crows feet while the collagen-infused lip mask is large enough to cover your lips and the delicate skin around them.
The fact that you can take a selfie while wearing them is simply a bonus.
Below, we break down our two favorite KNC Beauty products:
KNC Beauty Eye Mask
The superstar ingredient in this starry eyed mask is no doubt Vitamin A.
Vitamin A (or Retinol) is a mask multitasker. With continued and consistent use, retinol works to increase cell turnover, stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, and fade hyperpigmentation.
The mask also contains collagen, aloe, and hyaluronic acid for extra plumping power. The result? A smooth canvas for applying makeup or your daily sunscreen.
You can use the eye mask 3-4 times a week for best results.
All natural eye-mask Ingredients:
- Hyaluronic Acid,
- Licorice Root Extract,
- Vitamin A,
- Rosemary Extract.

The very first product in the KNC Beauty line, this plumping lip mask has been gracing the lips of Hollywood starlets for a few years now.
The now iconic product contains plumping collagen, moisturizing bitter cherry extract, hydrating rose flower oil, and nourishing vitamin E.
Leave it on for 20 minutes after showering to achieve the plump, hydrated, smooth lips you’ve been lusting for.
WOW Tip: Use the KNC Lip Scrub while in the shower to exfoliate and prime lips for optimal absorption of the lip mask.
