ABOUT THIS BRAND
Kapua 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 have gone thru 2 bottles of this cleanser. I love the formula. It is gentle yet effective, balances my combo-dry and hormonal acne skin. The scent is light. I love that my skin feels clean but hydrated. I took one star off because with both bottles I have to scrape the rest out. The pump starts to have difficulty pulling product as the bottle empties. I thought it was the one, but now the second one has the same issue. I have a similar issue with Malu with all the bottles (I have gone thru 3 of those and all the same issue). Despite that, I would buy again as the formula works for me. The whole line is really good for my skin and keeping it healthy.
I got this cleanser as a free gift about a year ago. It is my favorite cream cleanser. It is very effective even with a small amount of product. It removes makeup without feeling harsh or irritating to my eyes. The scent is quite nice, not overpowering at all. It does not strip the skin, but if I am a little oily, I can leave it on for a few minutes (like a mask) and it leaves my skin soft and plump and without excess oil. It is what I travel with, and what I would choose if I could have only one cleanser.
The positives about this cleanser: - You get so much cleanser even if you get the smaller jar. Great value. - Again with the value. It‚Äôs more affordable than other brands without sacrificing quality. - The smell is quite lovely. - The packaging is beautiful. Negatives: - Defectuve bottle. Every time I would pump, a little would come up from the inside of the outer ring. This upset me because I wanted to keep more of this cleanser. - Preciously when I had an allergic reaction to something else, I couldn‚Äôt put on this cleanser without further irritating my skin. This is not much a negative but just wanted those with significant skin sensitivities to be aware. All around exquisite product.
I received this cleansing cream as a Love More gift, and am thrilled with how it performs. I just moisten my hand, rub a few squirts into my skin, and gently massage it all over. It‚Äôs clean, refreshing, and removes all my makeup without stripping my skin. I‚Äôm a fan!
This was a Love More gift and, indeed, I love it more than I had guessed. It takes very little, massaged onto damp skin, to leave skin feeling clean, fresh, and moist. It takes off my make-up, too. The only reason for 4 stars is that the pump was broken and I had to take off the cap in order to use the cleanser.
