Huxley is a Korean skincare brand that uses organic prickly pear seed oil in all it’s products. Their products tend to be quite clean for a K Beauty brand (not all of them are). I talked about a few of Huxley’s products HERE. I grabbed three more items to try during Black Friday. Prickly pear oil is one of my favorites. It’s packed full of wonderful things like fatty acids Omega 6 and 9, it has a high concentration of natural vitamin E, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory containing polyphenols, and phytosterols which help retain moisture in the skin and help with collagen production. Overall prickly pear seed oil helps nourish the skin, it’s anti-aging and it can help brighten as well.
The Good Night Sleep Mask is quite nice. Details per Ohlolly:
An overnight renewing mask made with Sahara’s prickly pear cactus extract, which is full of skin-benefiting antioxidants, vitamin E and linoleic acid, Huxley Good Night Sleep Mask deeply hydrates, soothes inflamed skin and repairs dull, nutrient-depleted skin, all while you sleep. A non-sticky gel formula revitalizes skin during the night to reveal more youthful, supple and radiant looking skin. Hyaluronic acid hydrates while centella asiatic extract further helps to soothe. Perfect for all skin types, especially those with dry or dehydrated skin. Made without parabens, synthetic dyes or mineral oils.

This gel cream overnight mask uses prickly pear extract, ceramide NP, sodium hyaluronate, beta-glucan to hydrate and plump the skin. It has a light clean floral scent-nothing big. This is designed to be used as an overnight mask on top of your skincare. I cannot use this alone as intended. I found the best way to use this was as a gel cream over my serums, but under my oil and cream. This gave me an extra boost of hydration. This gives me not only that hydration boost but I wake up with an overall radiance and look like I got a good night sleep (which is never true for me).
The Keep Calm Healing Mask is a gel style mask. Details per Ohlolly:
A deeply nourishing and unbelievably calming wash-off mask made with Sahara’s prickly pear cactus extract. Full of skin-benefiting antioxidants, vitamin E and linoleic acid, Huxley Keep Calm Healing Mask fights free radicals and repairs dull, nutrient-depleted skin in just minutes. A unique jelly-like texture (imagine grated cactus) grabs onto skin to deeply hydrate and soothe while cooling and calming. Centella asiatic extract further helps to soothe and heal while orange peel extract revitalizes skin tone. Perfect for all skin types. Made without parabens, synthetic dyes or mineral oils.

This mask has a jelly like texture. The light clean scent is easy to get along with. This mask uses prickly pear extract & oil, glucose, glycerin, aloe, propolis, sodium hyaluronate, turmeric and centella asiatica extract to hydrate, soothe and calm. I think this is a good product I just tend to prefer a more creamy textured hydrating mask. I much prefer the overnight mask of the two products. That ones shines a lot more than this one does. I also grabbed the lip balm. It’s OK but it’s just a bit too thin & hard in texture for what I prefer.
