Review of Hujan Luxury Skin Care Products

Hi Shine and Sparkle Report Readers!

In keeping with my weekly blogs since my acceptance into the "Her Campus Blogger Network"(HCBN), I have a set of great skin care products to review for you all! However, these products were not sent as part of my participation in HCBN. As I promised, I am fully disclosing that I received these products in exchange for my review of them.  I also promise to be completely honest with you about how I feel about them.

 Hujan Skin Care Products are high-end spa products specifically designed for Kinetic Day Spa in Tiburon, California. I personally know that both Kinetic Day Spa and their product line are made with tons of love and commitment to great ingredients.  A little goes a long way, so though initial investment seems pricey, you get your moneys worth!

I made this image, if you'd like to use it please ask ;)  Honestly, I don't know why you would want yo steal the image...I'd want to steal the AWESOME skin care products.

The packaging was simple and clean. Quick Tip: Dipping your fingers in products that come in pots can increase the chance of germs contaminating the product, causing breakouts.  Make sure your hands are clean before using products in pots.  I was immediately really impressed with the quality and purity of the ingredients in these products:
  • Natural and Organic Ingredients
  • Gluten Free
  • Aromatherapy
  • No Parabens
  • No Artificial Fragrances or Dyes
  • No Propylene Glycol
  • No Sulfates
  • No Animal Testing
They are supposed to be optimized to be:Anti Aging
  • Hydrating
  • Rejuvenate
  • ​Repair
 Pretty Amazing right? These products are great for all skin types and all ages.

My set was equivalent to the "Hujan Starter Pack", which retails for $153.  I know this sounds pricey  compared to drugstore products, however these are the same products used in a facial from Kinetic Day Spa that cost $90-$110 each.  Not only that, but it's a great deal compared to some of less healthy skin care available at say.. Nordstroms. Thus, you can give yourself many more at home facials at with these products.  The products I received included:

1. Balancing Cleanser (4oz)-  I used this first.  I really liked this cleanser.  The first ingredients are organic aloe vera juice, organic rooibos tea extract, and organic olive oil.  I love that it also contains activated charcoal.  This is great for drawing out impurities from your skin.  It doesn't foam, which means it cleanses while not stripping your skin.  While this is great to start your Sunday pamper day (especially for a Hujan-product pamper session), I don't think I would use it to try and take off heavy makeup at the end of the day.  It will not do much to take off things like water-proof mascara.  If you normally do not wear make-up, this is a great daily cleanser.  If you do, then make sure to remove your make-up first.

2. Balancing Toner (4oz)-  Following the cleanser, I used this toner.  The instructions say to "pat around the eye area".  I found that I prefer to spray it on a cotton round and swipe all over my face (including the eye area).  Again, you are looking at the main ingredients organic aloe vera juice, organic rooibos tea extract, and organic olive oil.  It also has activated charcoal.  Pretty awesome. It also does not sting or dry out your skin like some toners.

3. Hydrating C-Serum (2oz)-  I used this after my toner dried.  This is not a silicone serum that is clear and slides over your skin.  It is more of a light moisturizer cream that is packed with a lot of concentrated nutrients for your skin.  A base of organic aloe vera juice works with things like Rosehip seed oil, Vitamin C Ester, and Organic berry extracts to brighten skin, refine pores, moisturize, and seemed to make the biggest difference in my skin out of all the products.  This was probably my favorite of all the products.  I don't really have fine lines or wrinkles yet, but this serum pretty much brings my skin back to my teenage years (without the acne!)  I'm a fan.  Because it's so potent, I don't use it every day, but every day might be a great option if you have more mature skin.  I also use this as my eye cream.  For an eye cream, this is a GIGANTIC tub.

4. Rejuvenating Facial Moisturizer (2oz)- Lastly, my skin was feeling clean, refined, bright, and nourished, but this product is very deeply moisturizing.  Shea and Coco butters make this very hydrating and wonderful.  It is a pretty heavy moisturizer which leaves a bit of a oily feeling to the skin.  Perfect for night time application when younger skin really needs some TLC and amazing for more mature skin.  I ended up gifting it to someone with drier more mature skin who simply raved about it.  It would not be my first choice for day time or under make-up, but it is perfect for after you get finished with this luxurious set of skin treatments. 

All Around Thoughts:  I really like them if you are looking on products for your pamper nights.  I think I will be working them into my daily routine also when my skin needs a little extra something.  Probably use the cleanser and toner in the mornings and moisturizer at night. I can use the serum is behaving and I don't need to use my acne treatment (or as a light moisturizer).  They are pretty pricey, but a little product goes a REALLY long ways.  This makes them a much more reasonable splurge purchase.  All the products all have a luxurious feel when applying them.  They also all have a wonderful herbal and natural fragrance that make you think of a spa when you close your eyes. I would definitely repurchase the serum and moisturizer.  I'm not sure if in the long run I would re-purchase the cleanser or toner because I really love my current ones, not because these are not good. Also, be aware, that with products are so pure and natural, their shelf life is not as long as products with chemicals and preservatives, try not to keep them around for too long. 

Thank you so much to Hujan and Kinetic Waves Salon for this opportunity to try and review these amazing luxurious products.  And as always,

Shine & Sparkle!
