It's pretty, it's K-beauty, and it's power-packed with good-for-you ingredients. And you've likely never heard of it—at least, not yet anyway. Huxley is the latest K-beauty brand we've spotted in our beauty searches, and we think you might want to just pay attention to this one. Not only is it a beautiful new indie brand, but the luxury skincare brand actually harnesses the power of an unlikely ingredient that can withstand the harshest conditions of the Sahara Desert—the prickly pear cactus.
At the core of the brand is this precious ingredient, prickly pear seed oil, which is known for its rich antioxidant and hydration properties. Because of the prickly pear's vitality even among the dry environment of the Sahara, it makes it a perfect addition to the luxe skincare line, which revitalizes, soothes, and nourishes skin.
Despite what you might think you know about K-beauty, you don't have to master a 12-step routine. Huxley prefers to take the minimalist approach, creating a line to tackle the problems city skin faces with just a quick line up of products. The line contains essences, creams, oils, and cleansers. And although there are quite a few options you do have, you certainly don't have to load up on all the products to reap the benefits. Ah, the beauty of a minimalist life!
And because we live in a world in which "doing it for the 'Gram" is more than acceptable if not totally normal, Huxley's products are sleek and chic. The outer packaging features stylish images of the Sahara Desert, while the bottles and jars themselves feature smooth, streamline monochromatic hues.
Right now, you can shop the just-launched brand at Nordstrom, Riley Rose, and at K-beauty hot spot, Glow Recipe. Ready for some Huxley? Take a peek at some of the brand's favorites.
