Ola Mana Moisturizer

Press Sample

I'm all about finding new ways to love my skin so when Ola Hawaiian Skin Care reached out, I jumped on board. The brand is an entire Tropical Apothecary with bath & body products, hair care, a wellness line and an "after sun" care line. The Hawaiian Skin Care line contains 5 products starting with a mask, cleanser, toner and then adding a serum to the moisturizer but today I just have the Mana Moisturizer to review.

In addition to the multiple products, there are 3 lines - Aina (normal-dry), Kai (oily), Pua (sensitive) and then all end with the Mana Moisturizer (for all skin types). The moisturizer comes in a frosted glass container with a silver brushed lid. The 30 mL jar sells for $45.00.

The product itself almost has a whipped texture. To use, first cleanse and tone your skin, then scoop out some moisturizer in your hand. Add a few drops of serum and then massage gently into your skin, avoiding the eyes.

The Mana Moisturizer contains anti-aging ingredients extracted from the land and sea with powerful essential oils made in Hawaii, locally harvested, naturally active, certified organic, sustainably grown and wildcrafted.

I was sent a one-time sample size of the Pua cleanser, toner and serum, so I used the entire system at first. While I cannot attest to long time usage, the cleanser and toner felt nice while the serum was a little sticky but melted into the moisturizer. The moisturizer itself did not work for my skin and sweated off (a problem I have with moisturizers from time to time). The moisturizer does smell a little earthy but the scent does not linger. Because of the whipped texture, you must add a serum to it or it does not melt well into the skin. I tried the moisturizer with a different serum but had the same sweating off issue however I do recommend using the Ola products for best results with this moisturizer.

You can purchase the Ola line from their website. Join the social conversation on Facebook and Instagram.
