ABOUT THIS BRANDKapua Browning, Founder of Honua Skincare has a family lineage known for protecting the land, water and farmlands of Hawai’i. Growing up, Kapua immersed herself in the study of Hawaiian botanical skincare, becoming a licensed esthetician and instructor. She and her husband Brandon, a Hawaiian Traditional Medicine practitioner, began crafting customized oils and tinctures for their clients using native Hawaiian botanicals. In 2016, they birthed a brand with only one given name: Honua. Through Honua, which means ‘earth’ in Hawaiian, Kapua channels her passion for expert-formulated skincare that incorporates native plants and farming rituals of Hawai’i, while giving back a portion of her profits to three organizations in her homeland: 'Āina Provide, Hoa 'Āina O Mākaha and the Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Initiative.
I love all of the Honua skincare line. This oil is so lovely and moisturizing without being greasy or heavy. I have combo-dry skin with some hormonal acne, and this helps heal, soothe, and hydrate. I also use the Aloha Youth Serum so the combo is wonderful. I have mixed this oil into the Graydon Green Cream, and my skin feels amazing. It does not smell skunky to me as others have commented... it smells nutty, and maybe a bit sweet, but it dissipates. I would definitely re-purchase this.
Interesting oil combination. It works well with other products. This is a nice enough oil but the smell may be too much for some to get past. It smell skunky and the smell while it dissipates, does linger longer than I would like. I can not say I would re-purchase this oil.
When I first smelled this, it struck me as very skunky-herbal, and I didn't think I could wear a product with that fragrance on my face. However, I really enjoy the light texture of this face oil, and in combination with the Aloha beauty serum, it provides all-day hydration that makes my skin soft and youthful. I find myself reaching for this more and more often. I recently took it to the beach with me for a week, along with the Aloha serum, and the results were amazing. I have even grown to enjoy the scent! This delivers results.
