Treatments (Face) -Ole Henriksen -Invigorating Night Gel

on 10/9/2018 10:10:00 PM


I just got into anti-aging skin care since I've turned 30. This seems like a MIRACLE product to me. It's gentle enough to be used every night, even around the eyes (no burning or anything!). When I wake up in the morning, I can't stop feeling my face because it feels soooo soft. It really helps fight fine lines, I've noticed that my forehead isn't nearly as crease-y as it was prior to using this product. (I noticed the change after only a few days of use, too, so I'm impressed!). The gel formula feels great on my oily skinI although I still recommend wearing some lotion on top because it doesn't provide any hydration.

The new packaging is a blue bottle with a pump, but I believe this is the same product as the one in the green jar. I REALLY like the pump packaging, one pump is enough to cover both my face and my neck.

Note about fragrance: There is a weird, gross sort of smell when its first pumped out, but I don't notice it when it sinks into my skin. You may want to avoid if you hate scents of any kind.

Treatments (Eye) -Ole Henriksen -Banana Bright Eye Creme

on 10/9/2018 10:06:00 PM


I love the concept of this banana-powder-inspired eye cream but it didn't meet any of my expectations aside from being.... well, hydrating (as all eye creams tend to be). The banana color LOOKED opaque in the tub but on my eyes, it vanished. I was hoping this cream would help color correct my eye bags so I could skip some of my eye routine in the morning, but frankly it didn't do much aside from hydrate my eye area. I got a LOT more coverage using a regular corrector.

If you're looking for a nice eye cream, sure, this is fine. But if you're looking for that "brightening" effect, this barely has any.

Masks -Ole Henriksen -Cold Plunge Pore Mask

on 10/9/2018 10:45:00 AM


The Ole Henriksen Cold Plunge Pore Mask is actually one of the better pore masks and, in my opinion, one of the better products overall from the Ole Henriksen brand. This mask has a vivid green color to it which is kind of fun, and does tingle a bit upon application. The tingling is probably from the peppermint they have included, which is my only real issue about the mask, peppermint is not the best for skin, but since this is a rinse off mask it isn't as much of an issue as opposed to being in a leave on product. I like the fact that Ole Henriksen has included several different exfoliants in this mask, and they do a decent job of helping with clogged pores and blackheads. The other thing I really like about the Ole Henriksen Cold Plunge Pore Mask is that after rinsing this off your skin doesn't feel dry or flaky like how many other exfoliating masks can leave skin feeling. This isn't life changing but definitely a decent, affordable, well packaged mask. Wish they would have left out the peppermint... My video review can be seen here if you are interested:

Skincare - Face -Ole Henriksen -Sheer Transformation Creme

on 10/8/2018 6:27:00 PM


In addition to purchasing this as part of the 3 Little Wonders set, I received a few sample packets of this with a beauty order but was not impressed with the texture or efficacy of this moisturizer. I found this to leave my skin feeling quite sticky and shiny. It wasn’t horrible but not worth the price for what it does. I get better results and enjoy my usual mositurizer (Embryolisse) so much more than this one. So far, the Banana Bright Eye Creme is the only product I would consider repurchasing from Ole Henriksen.

Treatments (Face) -Ole Henriksen -Goodnight Glow Retin-ALT Sleeping Creme

on 8/24/2018 7:27:00 AM


Ole Henriksen introduced two new products which they dub Retinol alternatives. One is their day serum called Glow Cycle Retin-ALT Power Serum, which I review two days ago. This review is of their nighttime cream called Goodnight Glow Retin-ALT Sleeping Creme, which I really wanted to love. The Goodnight Glow Sleeping Creme has a lot of fragrance included and smells like lemon sherbert, which actually smells good, but skin is generally better off with less fragrance ingredients. This definitely helps brighten the skin with AHA and bakuchoi. I'd rather have this packaged almost any other way than the jar because it makes application a little messy and exposes the good ingredients to air and light. I also wish they mentioned the percentage of AHA's in the Sleeping Creme. I have been able to include this into my routine while still using my normal exfoliant so I am guessing the percentage of AHA's isn't too high. In my opinion, AHA's and BHA's are the single biggest thing you can change in your routine that will have the biggest impact so this might be a nice option to start with. I probably wouldn't purchase this again due to the issues I have outlined before. My video review can be seen here:
