Korean skincare brand Huxley launches at Harvey Nichols 

    This month sees the launch of Korean skincare brand Huxley at global fashion & beauty retailer, Harvey Nichols. For more than a thousand years, Berber women in Morocco’s Sahara Desert have laboriously cultivated the seed oil of the prickly pear cactus to keep their skin healthy and hydrated in harsh conditions. Now, Korean beauty brand Huxley has harnessed these ancient techniques to create Secret of Sahara, an innovative skincare line using certified-organic, cold-pressed prickly pear seed oil to combat the effects of urban stress on the skin. This cruelty-free skincare brand brings a less-is-more approach to K-Beauty. The Huxley product range includes: Mask: Oil and Extract (£20 for set of 3) with a dual-pouch sheet mask enriched with deeply nourishing cactus extract and prickly pear seed oil sealed in a separate pouch, formulated with anti-ageing properties and extracts to protect skin from environmental stressors.  pH Balance Toner: Extract (£26) It is formulated using 90% naturally derived ingredients including prickly pear seed oil, rosa centifolia and crepe myrtle extract to repair and protect without irritating or drying out the skin. Antioxidant Cream: Anti Gravity (£33) formulated with a velvety oil-cream formula, concentrated with 51% prickly pear seed oil which melts into the skin, creating a lifted, firm appearance while locking in moisture and forming a protective barrier. Launching in-store at Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge and online this week. Huxley is also available at Fenwick of Bond Street,, and Huxley is distributed in the UK exclusively by TONIC15, which focuses on bringing simple K-Beauty methods to the Western market, bypassing the traditional gimmicks and fuss associated with Korean Beauty. TONIC15 aim to create K-Beauty 2.0 ‘Korean Beauty Made Simple’. The founder, Jin Kwon, is available for comment on how you can get the results of traditional K-Beauty methods in just 15 minutes using simple processes. Prices range from £20 to £38.
