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.
Before anyone bristles at the word "chemical" in the title, water is a chemical and I'm referring to chemical vs physical exfoliants. So yes this is a natural exfoliant that works quite well. I do enjoy papaya enzymes as a topical, chemical exfoliant over things like glycolic acid. My skin needs BHA exfoliation more though and I use a retinol a few times a week so I don't use this product particularly often as over exfoliation makes my skin incredibly sensitive. I use this just a few times a month to help with cell turnover and I can see the dead skin coming off on the pad when I use it.
I really dislike the scent of this product. No matter how well it performs (and it does perform), the scent is enough to keep me from buying it again.
After being introduced to Honua through the beauty box, I decided to try the Hawaiian Beauty Water as a quick exfoliant when I am in a rush. It definitely delivers. Once a week I swap my usual toner for this beauty water during my morning routine. Then, I moisturize and layer on my make-up. When I cleanse in the evening, my skin is soft and smooth. It has spent the day rejuvenating.
If you don't have time to have a manual exfoliation routine, this exfoliation water is calling your name! This is one of those products where results are immediate! My skin always feels baby soft and smooth after. I used this before attending a wedding, and before makeup application, and my makeup was perfect all evening long!
