You can feel the aloha in Honua Hawaiian Skincare! The products are organic, cruelty-free, and vegetarian. In fact, almost all of them are vegan, with the exception of two items that contain ethically sourced, local honey. These offerings are certain to bring a bit of sunshine into your life during these chilly fall days! Their quality is evident, and their prices are reasonable.
You’ll love Honua’s colorful website, www.honuaskincare.com. It’s reminiscent of a trip to the islands. We’re intrigued by all of the products, but were especially drawn to the Hawaiian Beauty Water ($24.00). It’s a powerful liquid exfoliant that can be used several times a week to gently scrub away dead skin cells and grime. The aromatic combo of papaya enzymes, hibiscus, and ko (Hawaiian sugar) work together to give your face a healthy glow (something we can all use, now that we’re not getting nearly as much sunshine as we did a few weeks ago). Just looking at this potion’s bottle is a thrill, since it radiates a lovely pink glow.
Keep yourself moisturized with the Malu Day Cream ($42.00). This balm boasts an SPF of 30, and is palm-free, vegan, and free of synthetic fragrances. It protects your skin from industrial pollutants and the sun’s often damaging rays. Non-nano zinc oxide, jasmine, antioxidant noni, and laukahi combine to create a luxurious elixir for your tender facial skin. A percentage of this product’s proceeds benefits the non-profit Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii. This agency works diligently to ensure clean, environmentally sound oceans. So, you can feel beautiful and help the Hawaiian coastlines at the same time!
The Aina Invigorating Face Mask ($38.00) is described on the company website as “detoxifying, stimulating, and nourishing.” They achieve this feat with their dynamic combination of bamboo charcoal, Hawaiian chili pepper, and taro root. Packed full of phytonutrients, this offering delivers a wallop! Anti-aging vitamins A and C, manganese, and beta-carotene give your skin the nourishment it needs. You’ll also benefit from the addition of turmeric (a brightening agent) and tamanu oil, which brings balance and hydration. Don’t worry about the mask’s slight tingling sensation — that means it’s working its magic!
If you want to pay in installments, no problem. Honua participates in the Afterpay program. They don’t charge interest! Also, when you order $75.00 worth of merchandise, shipping is free. If you have questions about product ingredients, many of them can be answered by clicking on the website’s “blog” link. Remember: everything this company offers is vegetarian (mostly vegan) and cruelty-free! Why not bring a bit of aloha into your life?
