Hawaiian Beauty Water
MEET OUR EXFOLIATING GLOW POTION...
Papaya enzymes, hibiscus and kō (Hawaiian sugar) work together to gently exfoliate skin, revealing a healthy glow. After years of studying clients' skin, our founder Kapua became concerned with the long term effects of physical exfoliants. Yet she recognized the need for exfoliation so she designed the Hawaiian Beauty Water, which has become one of our most popular products. Everyone wants glowing skin and this potion is gentle enough for the most sensitive skin.
Hawaiian Beauty Water is a liquid exfoliant that can be used 1-5 times per week (dry:1-3 oily: 3-5) to gently exfoliate all skin types for a luminous complexion, tighter looking pores and a fresh face. Great as a skin prep before makeup applications!
Directions: Use on a cotton round and wipe entire face/décolleté rather than spritzing. This swiping motion visibly removes dead skin cells.
Note: Our Hawaiian Beauty Water can vary in shades from pink-orange to a deeper pink/magenta based on where and when our hibiscus flowers are sourced. Hawaiian Beauty Water may include sediment from our natural ingredients, which is perfectly safe. Just shake it up before dispensing onto cotton round.
For more information on our entire ritual, visit our Creator's Perspective Series, where Kapua describes why Hawaiian Beauty Water was one of her first power products.

Step 1: Apply 1-2 pumps of our Pa'akai Cleansing Cream in your hand and lomi (massage) on to your face, add water to emulsify and rinse clean.
Step 2: Apply 1-2 pumps of our Hawaiian Beauty Water on a cotton round and gently wipe across entire face and décolleté. This process not only tones, hydrates, but helps to remove dead skin to leave skin glowing.
Step 3: Apply a pea size amount of our ALOHA Youth Serum to your hand and gently lomi onto the face and décolleté. Let it penetrate while thinking beautiful thoughts before moving on to the next step.
Step 4: Apply a ¼ dropper of the 'Ōlena Oil into your palms and warm up before gently pressing into skin. This will leave your skin feeling hydrated, plump and give your our signature Honua glow.
Step 5: During the daytime, finish with our beloved MALU Moisturizer + SPF30. Sun protection is critical for all skin types. At night, we recommend our newest creation, the Māhealani Moonlit Glow Balm.
FRESH-BLENDED HAWAIIAN CREATIONS
Every single Honua creation draws its inspiration from Hawaii's botanicals, culture and the traditional Hawaiian healing art of Lā'au Lapa'au. Founder Kapua Browning created the formulas for many of our products in her apothecary facial studio on the island of Oahu, years before bottling them to share with the world.
Each of our products are exquisitely crafted using only the highest quality ingredients, many of which are sourced from local farms in Hawaii. Sharing the love between many farms rather than 1-2 large ones allows time for replenishment so that we never deplete our resources. We also believe in supporting sustainable farmers as their regenerative farm practices will allow our beautiful plants to continue to thrive for years to come.
All Honua products are made fresh very shortly after creation. We recommend using them within 12 months of opening. Please store in a cool, dark place to preserve its longevity! While we Hawaiians LOVE the sun, our Honua creations do not.
