The brand this month is Honua! This Hawaiian brand is one of my favorites for its formulas that strike the perfect balance between active, beautiful, and fragrant. It is the whole experience!
This box delivered four amazing products from this wonderful brand.
Let's dive in!
Hibiscus Beauty Booster, 1 fl oz - Retail Value $54
This is the newest Honua launch which makes it feel extra special. I love when a brand spankin' new formula appears on my doorstep! This serum arrived in a white glass bottle and it is a medium consistency and the prettiest coral color. It smells both like seaweed and flowers which is weird but enjoyable. The formula is rather simple: water, hyaluronic acid, hibiscus, and astaxanthin. There is also a little preservative and alcohol for viscosity control. It feels really wonderful on the skin and is slick but quick absorbing.
Lihau Refreshing Face Mist, 4 fl oz - Retail Value $54
This is one of my favorite toners. It has some of my faves: witch hazel, aloe, and hyaluronic acid. There is also hydrating trehalose. The scent is pretty much divine: blue tansy, sandalwood, vetiver, and rosemary. Sure, the nozzle could be a little more misty and gentle, but my favorite use for this is actually adding it to powdered masks then applying it with a brush. It also makes a great layer between your serum and moisturizer to keep the skin moist and help with absorption. I also noticed redness reduction on my cheeks which makes sense because some of the ingredients are anti-inflammatory.
Malu Day Cream SPF 30, 2 oz - Retail Value $42
I already have a fave SPF that I rarely cheat on (Supergoop Glow Screen 4 EVER) but wow this cream is a close contender for my heart. It smells like wild jasmine and wears really well, with no ashiness or weird film left behind. One weird thing was that while it squirts out of the nozzle just fine when I opened the cap it looked a little dry in there. I am not sure if this is just how this stuff is or what. But I have been using it for a week now and the texture seems awesome. In addition to SPF30, it also has skin-loving hyaluronic acid, squalane, and vitamin E.
Mahealani Moonlit Glow Balm, 1.2 oz - Retail Value $82
If there is a crown jewel to this delivery, this stunning blue balm is it. Blue Tansy lovers, rejoice! This is THE balm I recommend to anyone with super dry skin or skin that is having a tough time in the winter. I like to treat it as a sleep mask myself, applying a thick layer, giving myself a mini facial massage, and then falling asleep. The scent of blue tansy just adds to the magic. If you think this stuff is heavy, you are right. Inside is a blend of shea, jojoba, macadamia, and Kuki oils. They create a thick balm that coats skin easily, meaning you need very little at a time. There are also tons of soothing and antioxidant-rich botanical extracts. Literally, I wake up glowing with this stuff nourishing me through the night. If you do find this balm a little too heavy for your face, it also doubles as an incredible moisturizer for chapped hands, knees, elbows, and cuticles.
See New Skincare Box send me heaven in a box this month. Honua is such a great brand and all of these formulas were fantastic. All of the products work in such a gorgeous harmony with each other for a complete routine, day to night. I found this curation absolutely lovely as someone already familiar with the brand, but I can only imagine what subscribers new to this Hawaiian treasure will think once they try these formulas out for the first time. The value here is great: $232 for the cost of $56. That is a win.
