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.
My first impression of this was that I didn't love the scent or the texture. But the results are fantastic. Combined with the Olena beauty oil, this causes my skin to be hydrated, plump, and soft all day long. I recently spent a week at the beach and used this every day--I never looked dry or leathery, just youthful and sun-kissed. I used it on my husband. His face is often visibly red, dry, tight, and flaky. One application of the Hawaiian Beauty Water, this serum, and the Olena beauty oil, and his skin was soothed, and he looked 5 years younger. I couldn't stop looking at him, he looked so good! This is possibly my favorite Beauty Hero of all time, and I will definitely repurchase. Am strongly considering getting a set of Honua products for my husband too!
I received this last fall in the 5th Anniversary Hero box, and fell in love. I use this serum daily. I maintains my skin so healthy and nourished. I have since purchased 2x. The latest one has Bakuchiol, which I don't see listed in the ingredients, but just FYI. My skin glows and the scent is so lovely.
I will start off by saying, the natural scent is strong. It kinda smells like cedar to me, which is weird because I don't think there is any cedar in here. It is not an altogether unpleasant smell, just strong. But this is a very effective serum. It sinks in well without totally disappearing. My skin still feels moisturized after using this. My skin looks brighter and more even and less inflamed. I really like this.
