Huckleberry - #hellohuckleberry

Women (and I'm sure men) don't often take time to sit back, relax, and enjoy a mini facial at home. It's important to give yourself a little facial to increase cell turnover, remove dead skin, and refresh the overall complexion. If you can't make it to the spa, let the spa come to you with Huckleberry.

I was introduced to Huckleberry through Sarita, of Edible Facial. She held an Instagram contest in which we could win our own customized exfoliant/mask duo for a truly spa-like at home facial. Huckleberry was kind enough to send all participants, "grand prize winner" or not, a duo to experience the brand and products. I was sent the *limoncello peel & mask, as well as a *brush.

How Huckleberry works is that you take a skin quiz, in order to determine your skin's needs. Then you pick several kits that you'd most like to try and Huckleberry chooses one from your facial menu to send to you. Lastly, you choose whether you'd like to receive a treatment set bi weekly, weekly, monthly, or a sampler which is 12 treatments over 3 months. How cool!?

These cute little duos come in small plastic containers, that are tucked into a velvet(ish) purple pouch. Each one comes with a card detailing what the exfoliant/mask are, what they do, how to use each one, and a list of ingredients.

The Limoncello Peel was incredible! I've mentioned time and time again how much I love chemical exfoliants, this one did not let me down. It felt like an actual peel! Now, when I saw an actual peel, I don't mean a peel that leaves your skin super raw and you have to hide for weeks until new skin grows. This peel isn't an intense dermatologist peel, it's superficial (top layer of skin/dermis level). It's ideal for anyone who cannot use a manual exfoliant because they're too sensitive or have pustules (pimples with white heads in them). The Limoncello Mask was great as well, and worked great in combination with the peel. I didn't use the brush, so I have no thoughts on that. It's great that they include one though!

I applied this peel on clean skin, let it sit for about 10 minutes and then removed it with warm (on the cooler side) water. Note: peels do tingle. Then I applied the mask for about 10 minutes and removed that with warm water as well. Once I was done my little facial routine, my skin was definitely red and a bit sensitive. I applied my favourite facial oils and off to bed I went. In the morning, my skin looked incredible! Honestly, my skin was so soft, even toned, and clear. Each little container was enough for 3 uses, however, I made stretched them to 4 uses. I'm beyond in love with this little kit and this company. My only two wishes are, 1. That this service be available in Canada and 2. That there were larger sizes available for purchase. I was explained that the reason larger sizes aren't available is because this service is meant to be customized based on your skin's needs that week/month. Still, I wish I could buy a big jar of that peel.

As an aesthetician and lover of facials, I'm incredibly impressed with the two products that I received from Huckleberry. If you live in the USA (which is where they ship to/within), then I highly recommend giving them a try.

  1. I was definitely intrigued by Sarita's post and am glad that they worked for you too. I'll definitely have to give Huckleberry a try!

  2. Hooray, Nicole! I'm so happy that you enjoyed your Huckleberry experience too. That peel! Lemme tell you, not many peels give you the same tingle that proves active, fresh ingredients are doing their job on the skin. Most other peels don't hold up to these little jars. (Fully agree on needing a bigger size, but those monthly orders replenish the supply with enough variety to leave me pretty satisfied). I hope that soon shipping will include more countries! Lovely review and big hug for the mention!! Xo

    1. I couldn't agree more on the fresh active ingredients, in the peel. Thank you so much for introducing me to the company xo

  3. I love the sound of these & the brush is so cool, always much nicer than an old foundation brush I normally use for applying masks haha! Hope they start shipping to the UK soon! x

    1. haha I use a foundation brush too..that's actually what I used instead of the nice brush that came with the set :P. I hope they ship worldwide soon, I need me some peels! xo


Thanks for the comment/feedback!
