When looking at the imagery of Huxley, you’d rather think its origins are North African instead of South Korean. It’s because founder Byung Hoon Lee was inspired by the beauty rituals of the Moroccan women. One of the key ingredients they use to protect their skin from drying in the desert is cactus seed oil. It became the essence of Huxley’s products.
Our first favorite is Huxley’s Oil Essence that strengthens and energizes the skin. It’s full of antioxidant-rich ingredients such as Sahara Cactus Oil, Quinoa, and Acai berry. Cactus seed oil is known for containing loads of vitamin E and provides the skin with lasting hydration, protects against external stressors and aging. The essence is comprised of 61% oil, it has the ability to quickly absorb into the skin and has a non-greasy texture.
We love this product because it leaves our skin with a glow, hydrates without making our face look shiny and to top it all off, it didn’t cause any breakouts.
