Faced vs unfaced insulation in basement?

I am finishing out my basement and I put one inch pink board behind the studs. I plan on insulating before drywall but am unsure as to what/ whether I need kraft faced insulation or unfaced insulation. The pink board should be a vapor barrier am I creating a situation where I have two barriers if I use the Kraft faced which I have read is bad? Just trying to get the best scenario. tx
