I was disappointed by this product. It did not work well with my skin. I found it difficult to put on and blend with skin. Additionally it was felt very greasy when it was on my skin. The color was too off as well. Instead of maybe the gray cast like many other BB creams, this one was darker and it seemed like it had a bronzing quality. The coverage was okay, minimizing my dark spots but …Read more

I generally like Ole Henriksen products so was excited to try out this new CC cream. This was also the first CC I had tried. I used light and it was a little too dark for me and I haven't previously had issues with BB creams correcting to my skin tone. It provided okay but not great coverage. While it is better than a having a bare face in terms of correcting my complexion, it wasn't …Read more

As a someone who has light skin, I am trying to find a bronzer I can use, especially in the winter when I can look awful with pale skin and dark hair. Unforunately this wasn't it. I was excited since it was both a BB cream and a bronzer. This was too dark for my light skin so it did not work out on skin. It was easy to put on but there was no way to blend it on lightly. It was way too orange …Read more

I've been using this concealer for several years based on the recommendation of a sales associate at Sephora. She suggested it as a good undereye concealer. I actually don't love it as an undereye concealer (it creases too much) but i love it for spot treatment. I'm in my late 20s and still have plenty of acne scars on my face and it does an amazing (no pun intended) covering up …Read more

First off, this is my first BB cream so I have nothing to compare it to. I had been thinking about getting a BB cream for awhile for the days when I'm running late for class and don't have time to put on a whole face of makeup. After doing a decent amount of research, I decided to try this one and am so happy I did. It provides a nice light amount of coverage so I still feel okay …Read more

I used this about 6 years ago but switched to mineral makeup when that became hot. I recently went on an extended trip and didn't want to bring brushes with me, so I bought one of these again. I think I love it more than before and I am wondering why I switched! It is easy to use and provides excellent coverage that can be built up. It's very lightweight so you don't look like you …Read more

I bought a chubby stick recently when I was going on a trip and didn't want to bring any makeup brushes with me. I'm still a fan even after the trip. I only have the fudge color but expect to add more soon. It's super easy to apply and the color looks great throughout the day. It's a great option for the days when you're running late and do your makeup at work or school - …Read more

Sep/08/2013

After reading all the great reviews, I was super excited to try this product. I never felt like it did much to my acne. Compared to what other people say, nothing really changed overnight. I would put it on my big angry pimples and hope for a miracle when I woke up and nothing... I have used almost the whole bottle. I will admit I have not used it consistently the whole time. I tend to go through …Read more

I used this moisturizer this summer and have been very please with it. First, it doesn't smell like sunscreen. Many moisturizers with SPF smell like sunscreen so I really like that. My skin absorbs it quickly and it is nongreasy and lightweight. I hate thick moisturizers in the summer. I spent more time outside this summer than normal and in a hotter and more humid environment and I never …Read more

I was very disappointed with this mascara. It was okay when I first started to use. Nothing to write home about but not really worth returning. The mascara wand was okay but wasn't great at getting mascara on individual lashes. I have been more pleased with other brands at similar prices. After just a few weeks, it was dry and clumpy. I know you're supposed to throw away mascara after …Read more
