You may have noticed some posts from our friends at the Strategist on the Cut. They’ll be dropping in every now and again, sharing their expertise on the basics you don’t have time to research and the weird and wonderful things you don’t yet know you need.
We learned about buzzy Korean skin-care line Huxley when the Cut reviewed its products back in February. The brand relies on prickly pear — a succulent that’s said to have anti-inflammatory qualities — in all of its products, which is why Huxley devotees rave about the hydration benefits and general skin-soothing effects. We’ve actually tried many of them ourselves and can vouch that they’re truly worth the hype.
After it launched at Glow Recipe, it took off in the States (and gained a wave of new followers among beauty editors and skin-care enthusiasts), but it’s also available at Nordstrom, where all of Huxley’s beauty sets are 50 percent off right now. It’s the best time to dabble if you’re curious — instead of picking and choosing products, you can scoop up a set and sample two or three at once (for a fraction of the original price).
If you just want to look a bit more dewy, you could try this set that contains the toner, the Secret of Sahara oil that Weatherford says locks in moisture without making you look greasy, and a glow cream that contains squalene (one of our favorite moisturizers) and aloe.
Here, we have the toner, a hydrating Fresh & More gel cream, and the Grab Water essence that Weatherford says is “refreshing as a spa” and functions as a light moisturizer.
We love how gentle this cleansing micellar water is, and the light touch of this cleansing gel that easily removes dirt and makeup and leaves skin soft to the touch.
And if you just want to lift and brighten your skin, you can’t go wrong with this antioxidant duo that contains the Secret of Sahara oil essence and anti-gravity cream.
An abbreviated version of the extra-moisture trio, if you don’t want to try the toner.
A downsized version of the hydration trio that isn’t quite so expensive (and still such a good deal for two products at once).
And a twofer of the Huxley oils.
