FIRST IMPRESSION: Huxley Secret of Sahara skin care line

I have tested 4 well-chosen products from Korean brand Huxley and the Secret of Sahara line. Here’s my first impression review.

The key ingredient in Huxley’s skin care line is Prickly Pear Seed Oil. Prickly Pear is a cactus in the Sahara desert. A strong, sustainable plant that survives in the most harsh and hostile desert climates. These products are rich in antioxidants that protect the skin from stress, aging, external impact and pollutions.

Most of Huxley’s products come in sturdy glass bottles and jars, some in plastic tubes. The line looks incredibly nice with its minimalist design. The Huxley brand really breathes lux premium quality products. I have tested several products from the Huxley Secret of Sahara line. Including the toner, a facial mask, the oil essence and a face cream. I’ll share my thoughts on all of these products in my review today.

Huxley Secret of Sahara Extract It Toner is a hydrating toner rich in antioxidants. The key ingredient is cactus water, cactus extract and seed oil from the Prickly Pear cactus. The toner also contains pink centifolia and Crape Myrtle Extract which soothes the skin and improves the skin’s texture. Huxley Extract It Toner contains a full 90% natural ingredients. This toner helps to balance the skin’s pH level as well as hydrating the skin. The result is fresh, clear and supple skin.

Huxley Secret of Sahara Extract It Toner has the most lovely scent of flowers. Something like lilies, jasmine and lily of the valley. The product looks very similar to water. It’s completely transparent and light flowing. The skin is immediately hydrated and refreshed. Really sticky feeling right after application if you pat in the toner using your hands. But the stickiness goes away shortly. Good absorption. This toner feels moist and light, and not at all heavy. And the skin doesn’t become shiny or oily after application.

I would recommend this toner for most skin types really. From normal to combination and oily skin. This toner should also be suitable for sensitive skin. On dry skin, one can layer the toner for maximum hydration. I prefer to pat in hydrating toners into the skin using my hands. Huxley Extract It Toner is one of Huxley’s best selling products, and I really do understand why. This is a nice toner. However, I think this product is way too heavily scented for my taste. Even though the scent is very nice. The toner is the most scented product out of all of Huxley’s products. And for that very reason, the toner was the product I liked the least unfortunately. It helps if you apply this toner using a cotton pad instead of using your hands. And the formula is very good indeed! But the smell is simply too strong. I would therefore rate this toner something like 3.5/5

Huxley Secret of Sahara Oil Essence

Huxley Secret of Sahara Oil Essence is a light and optimized blend of oil and essence that stimulates and revitalizes the skin. This award winning oil essence contains 61% Prickly Pear Seed Oil and it’s rich in vitamin E and antioxidants. Huxley Secret of Sahara Oil Essence provides lasting hydration and nourishment to the skin. The product also contains Yerba Mate Leaf, Acai Berry, Camu Camu and Quinoa, strengthening and moisturizing the skin. Packed with antioxidants this oil essence also protects skin from external stress, pollution and aging. Free from synthetic dyes and mineral oils. Apply the oil essence before or instead of a serum.

The Huxley Secret of Sahara Oil Essence is a unique product of its kind. This oil essence feels like a mixture between a serum and a very light facial oil I would say. If you don’t think of it as an oil essence, then you would probably use it as a regular serum. Huxley Secret of Sahara Oil Essence is translucent towards white and the product looks much like a glossy gel, similar to a classic serum. Huxley Secret of Sahara Oil Essence is definitely not a heavy or greasy product, but definitely a little more moisturizing and softening than most moist essences.

The oil essence has same lovely floral scent towards jasmine and lilies. Sticky feeling when applied. Good absorption and the skin immediately feels properly moisturized, but without being greasy or shiny. If you feel that facial oils are too heavy, then Huxley the Secret of Sahara Oil Essence is the perfect light version. I mainly use this product as the first “serum” directly after toner. I would recommend Huxley Secret of Sahara Oil Essence for normal, dry and combination skin types. One of my favorite products from Huxley and highly recommended, although the scent is quite strong with this one too. I’d rate the Oil Essence at 4.4/5

It’s also hypoallergenic and free from parabens, sulfates, phthalates, mineral oils and synthetic dyes.

Huxley Secret Of Sahara Cream Anti-gravity is the “heaviest” and richest of them all and it’s perfect for normal to dry skin types, and mainly as a night cream. The formula is incredibly smooth and creamy but at the same time it’s very concentrated with a solid dense texture to it. The product looks much like a creamy clay mask or body butter inside the jar. I’m thinking of shea butter. The result on the skin is very nice. This cream is properly moisturizing, softening and deeply nourishing the skin. And despite this face cream being really thick and rich, it still has good absorption. You do feel that this cream contains oils, but in a good way. The skin becomes incredibly supple and soft and the cream is easy to apply and massage into the skin. A wonderful relief for dry skin types for sure.

Huxley Secret Of Sahara Cream Anti-gravity has the same nice floral scent of lilies and jasmine as the other products from this line. But in the cream, the scent is just right and not overwhelmingly strong. The skin feels properly moisturized and slightly “oily” after application but without being sticky or greasy. The absorption is still good. I feel that this face cream is gentle to the skin without irritating. I would mainly recommend Huxley Secret Of Sahara Cream Anti-gravity to normal skin, dry skin, mature skin, and possibly combination skin, mainly as a night cream. For dry and really dry skin types, this cream do wonders both as a day cream and a night cream. An incredibly nice and concentrated face cream with that lux premium feel. Huxley Secret Of Sahara Cream Anti-gravity might as well have cost 70€ or more, but it’s only like 20€. Really good quality and highly recommended by me. My absolute favorite from Huxley and I rate this cream at 5/5.

Huxley Secret Of Sahara Healing Mask Keep Calm looks like a really thick green gel with small fragments in it. I spontaneously think of rich sticky Aloe Vera Gel. The mask has the same amazing floral scent of lily of the valley and jasmine, and the scent is quite pleasant. Spread the face mask on clean dry skin and leave it to work for 10 minutes. Then rinse your face. Huxley Secret Of Sahara Healing Mask Keep Calm feels incredibly gentle and cooling on the skin. I usually take a good amount of product and spread it evenly on my skin. Very soothing and a much needed relief for dry rough skin and irritated, red, flushed and warm skin, like rosacea.
