Skincare - Face -Ole Henriksen -Truth on the Glow Cleansing Cloths

on 3/14/2019 6:01:00 AM

Pricey, made my skin feel sticky and unclean, irritated the skin around my eyes and nose, clogged my pores and caused a TON of breakouts. Made my skin look congested and dull. Advertises the brightening effect of vitamin C but doesn't use a stable waterless form of vitamin C so this won't provide any anti-aging skincare benefits as the vitamin C will have broken down by the time it gets to your door. Didn't like the orange creamsicle scent. Very dry when they are first opened, then dry out very fast. Especially the 25 pack was nearly bone dry by the time I was on my last 5 and I had to add a splash of toner to rehydrate them and make them work. I found the 10 pack stayed moist long enough to get use out of them. I brought 3 packs fullsize and 3 minis to take on holiday and regretted it.

Moisturizers -Ole Henriksen -Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturizer

Basic light cream. Doesn't hydrate or absorb well, leaves skin shiny looking and sticky feeling. Irritates my normal sensitive skin and causes tiny itchy clogged pores every time I use it.

I gave it to my husband who has extremely dry skin and it doesn't break him out. He does have to layer it with facial oil as its very light on moisture. He's been using this continually for the last 4 months (fullsize, lots of deluxe minis) and this hasn't made a difference to his skin at all.

Ole claims this has Vitamin C and Kojic acid, for brightening, reduced redness and fresher looking skin. But the active ingredient Vitamin C breaks down within a 4 - 6 weeks (unless its waterless formula, which this is not), and even faster if its exposed to air in an open jar like this. Terrible packaging and not a great formula. I don't believe it has enough active or stabilised ingredients so is really just an overpriced basic cream with overhyped marketing. In contrast, Olay Miracle Boost Serum has reduced hubby's redness and brightened his skin dramatically within a few months. The active ingredient of Olay is Niacinimide and is high up enough on the ingredient list to be effective, according to The Beauty Brains. And its much cheaper!


Skincare - Face -Ole Henriksen -Truth Serum Collagen Booster

This serum is too sticky to enjoy. It very easily broke out my skin (sensitive and break-out probe, to be fair). I did not notice any difference in brightening, smoothing or helping the appearance of aging. In effect, the purpose of using this serum was entirely lost on my skin. I ask definitely needed a moisturizer on top of it, which I would imagine would feel even more sticky in humid weather. A definite fail for me, even more so forthe price point.


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

Pros:
Got rid of my fine under-eye lines!!!
Gentle on my VERY sensitive/acne prone skin
Nicely moisturizes my skin during AM and PM

Cons:
Expensive (however one jar lasts me 6 months since I use it sparingly)
Unsanitary jar
No longterm effect for under-eye circles.


Will continue to use this product until I find a cheaper alternative that does the job and doesn't break me out/give me rashes.

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

Average. Smelt lovely and felt nice on the skin but did absolutely nothing, if not make my skin slightly worse. Saw a slight glow in my skin the next morning but no diminished dark spots/fine lines/texture or pores and several under the skin bumps/spots. Used continuously for 3+ weeks with the Glow 2 Oh Dark Spot toner and sometimes alongside the Retin-Alt serum but no results. Disappointed overall.
