[BEAUTY] Review: Huxley Routine Set - Extra Moisture

When I first heard about Huxley, I was attracted by its tagline "Great things never came from comfort zones". The brand takes pride of its mission to explore the most extreme environments such as the Sahara desert, in search for ingredients that maximise skin vitality.

Made in Korea, Huxley is a contemporary beauty brand that dares to discover unknown ingredients and lead to new solutions for the skin suffering from harmful elements and stress in urban area.

Huxley 'Routine Set' - Extra Moisture

Huxley strongly believes in “minimal skincare, maximum result”, where it specially curates a minimal skincare routine that suits your skin concern while attaining maximum result. So, I have picked the Extra Moisture Routine Set for my dry, flaky skin. 

All Huxley products feature a hero ingredient, Sahara Cactus Seed Oil - a non-comedogenic oil high in Vitamin E and antioxidants, which is revered for its ability to quickly absorb into skin without leaving behind a greasy residue, while imparting lasting hydration and protecting the skin from stress and ageing with its high concentration of antioxidants. 

Huxley Secret Of Sahara Toner; Extract It (120ml) 

To begin my 3-step Extra Moisture journey with Huxley, I apply this soothing toner after cleansing. Powered by Cactus Extract, the toner provides powerful hydration and nutrition leaving skin clean, fresh and balanced.

How to use:
❤ Soak a cotton pad with product and gently swipe over cleansed face in an outward motion.

Texture and feel after use: 
 The non-sticky toner soothes the skin very well, leaving it moisturised and less sensitive.
❤ Beautiful botanical scent - I feel so fresh and amazing after using it. 

What I like:
❤ It is a great refreshing toner that doesn't add burden to the skin at all. 

Huxley Secret Of Sahara Oil; Light And More (30ml)

As for the next step, instead of the usual water-based essence, we have Huxley’s lightweight oil essence. It is a highly concentrated, antioxidant-rich oil which not only boosts moisture but also provides anti-aging benefits. 

Great for normal to dry skin types, Huxley uses safe and organic-certified ingredients here:
❤ Sahara’s prickly pear seed oil - Rich skin-benefiting antioxidants, vitamin E and linoleic acid.
❤ Sunflower seed oil and Jojoba seed oil - Strengthen skin’s moisture barrier for a radiant skin and smooth complexion
❤ Squalene - instantly hydrates while locking in essential moisture, for soft and supple skin.

How to use: 
❤ Apply 2-3 drops onto clean face after toner and gently pat into skin for optimal absorption. 
❤ Apply daily, morning and night, and follow with cream.

❤ Amazingly lightweight and it spreads smoothly over the skin effortlessly. 

Feel after use:
❤ With fast absorption without feeling greasy, the skin feels smooth and nourished instantly after use.

❤ Similar to the toner, it has a beautiful botanical scent that literally transports me to the field of greenery. 

What I like:
❤ I love how well this lightweight oil essence penetrates into my dull and dehydrated skin. While it is great for dry and tight skin (especially with flaking condition), it doubles as a remedy for those who have age-related concerns (fine lines, wrinkles, lack of firmness).

Huxley Secret Of Sahara Cream; More Than Moist (50ml)

The last step is Huxley's More Than Moist Cream, an intensive moisturising cream that seals the skin with rich moisture to target first signs of ageing for radiant, youthful-looking skin. 

With 50% Sahara Cactus Extract, a resilient plant that survives in harsh desert climates, this melting oil cream harnesses the power of cacti to fortify the skin with nutrition while locking in hydration to lift and strengthen the skin.

How to use: 
❤ Use after serum and before sunscreen. Apply 1-2 pearl-sized amount of cream onto your palm. Gently apply over entire face in an upward lifting motion. Can be used in the morning and at night.

 The balm-like texture cream is dense but nothing uncomfortable for the skin as it melts quickly and penetrates deep into the skin.  

Feel after use:
❤ As it forms a smooth moisture layer on the skin, I can feel the instant smoothness and "protective layer" that replenishes dry and sensitive skin. 

❤ Lovely botanical scent. Great for nature lovers!

What I like:
❤ It is highly moisturising and a little of this product is sufficient to envelope the skin with moisture. While it suits all skin types, I think this would be extremely helpful for those with extreme dry skin, delicate and sensitive skin, as well as those with age-related concerns (fine lines, wrinkles, lack of firmness). 

Before VS After comparison - 2 weeks of using Huxley "Extra Moisture" Routine Set

❤ Overall, Huxley "Extra Moisture" Routine Set gives my skin a long-lasting boost of moisture after 2 weeks of using it. With significantly hydrated skin now, it feels smoother and shines with a natural glow. The open pores become less visible too, and it allows for better adherence of makeup. 

Huxley’s products are available online at Shopee and in selected Guardian outlets too.
