After trying out the Huxley Oil và Extract Mask (which I talked about in my YouTube video and will most likely write a review for it later too) I got really into the brand! Their sheet mask did some incredible things for my skin, so I wanted lớn try out some other products from their line. I checked out the range that StyleKorean had on their trang web and, although they aren’t a cheap brand, I found that they’re also decently priced for the unique and effect of it.

Since I’m really into brightening products, I decided to try out the Glow Awakening Cream (I was also looking at the Brightly Ever After Essence which I think I will try at a later date too) and I have khổng lồ say – very boldly – that this is legitimately the best tone up/whitening cream that I have ever used! Since I started getting into kbeauty, I’d been trying out a lot of different tone up creams lớn brighten & even out my complexion.

Since most of them leave a very obvious trắng cast on my skin, I over up using them on my neck (to even out colour) since it makes my foundation look too pale without giving me a brightened glow. This product, however, is the exact opposite and it has some great skincare ingredients too – hence why I use it twice a day.

It is selling for USD$32.71 on StyleKorean – which I know isn’t cheap for a kbeauty skincare sản phẩm but the added cost is definitely worth it. So read on for my full đánh giá on this product và rest assured that this is one I am recommending lớn you!


So the cream comes in a grey và white box & the design of all of their products is really luxe và modern. As a designer, it makes me really happy. The trắng lid is made of a matte plastic và the toàn thân of the tub is a semi opaque glass. It feels really sturdy và looks good sitting on your vanity too, though it is rather heavy & I would recommend decanting some of the hàng hóa if you want to take it travelling.

The phrase on the label (“Great things never came from comfort zones”) is a reference to Huxley’s signature ingredient – Prickly Pear Seed Oil. Personally, I’m not sure what the benefits of it are but my experience with the ingredient is really positive; it always leaves my skin really hydrated and feeling brightened, without being too heavy. It also smells amazing.

This cream has the same scent as their Oil & Extract Mask và it’s really soothing, as well as refreshing. I have a really good time applying it and, since it’s such an enjoyable and natural scent, I don’t mind that it lingers a little bit (just a minute or two) after application.

So onto the product. When you open it up, it has a very creamy texture & a white colour – which basically looks lượt thích most other tone up creams. It claims khổng lồ provide moisture and lustre lớn your skin, as well as protecting it against harmful environmental factors. The main ingredient, as I mentioned before, is Prickly Pear Seed Oil which is rich in vitamin E and antioxidants – while also being non-comedogenic.

Overall, these are the main ingredients:

Prickly Pear Seed Oil – Antioxidant & MoisturizingNiacinamide – BrighteningOdeetox – Antioxidant, Anti-pollution, Inhibitions MelaninGlutachion – Improving skin tone & detoxificationBisabolol – Brightening và SoothingSC-Glucan – Regeneration và Skin barrier reinforcement

This is good for people are want lớn protect their skin from dust/pollution (like myself, who has serious hayfever around this time of the year và my skin often itches from it), those who seek brightening or a brightening moisturiser, and those who want a cream that is both lightweight & deeply hydrating.


As you can see from the photo, the cream absorbs quickly và it leaves me with a beauty and hydrated glow. My favourite thing about this though, is that it brightens up my skin tone without leaving an obvious white cast – instead, it just looks like I’m really well rested và fresh! I think that this would suit fair to lớn medium skin tones really easily though, to lớn be honest, I’m always unsure about tone up creams on deeper skin tones (I’ve never tried it so someone will have to let me know in the comments about it).

I wear this at night and it locks in my products, as well as keeping me really hydrated. I also wear it during the day underneath my hóa trang – I’ve tried it with many different foundations (as I am always switching it up) and I don’t think that it affects the wear time of it either. My skin doesn’t get any more greasy than it usually does & it also helps my matte foundations apply smoother.

However, I do not recommend using this (or any tone up cream) if you have acne prone or broken skin; all of the whitening creams that I’ve tried tend to sting a bit when used during those sort of skin days and this sản phẩm is no different.

For me though, this is really a great product & I’m definitely going to keep using it! Huxley is really impressing me và I’m super keen to try more of their products (like the hydrating range) because I think I’ve found a favourite skincare brand? Maybe? Let’s see.

Here’s my verdict!


A super hydrating tone up cream


Luxe & high quality packagingGreat ingredientsVery hydrating for skinWorks well under make upSubtle tone up with minimal trắng castGives you a refreshed glowSmells amazing


Too heavy for travelNot suitable for broken or acne prone skinMore expensive than mainstream brands





Absolutely! I am so quickly falling in love with Huxley products and StyleKorean has a really good range from them – they have multiple skin collections catered for different skintypes so regardless of how you feel about tone up creams, I definitely recommend trying out a product from a line that suits you.
