I’ve been hearing great things about Ole Henriksen Skincare and since I have many events, parties and trips planned, I decided it was a good time to test a few things for myself. As far as products go, the brand has it all including a wide range of cleansers, serums, moisturizers, scrubs, toners, masks and kits infused with effective active ingredients and natural botanicals.
The Power Bright set is a professional brightening treatment that works by boosting the complexion with a potent concentration of vitamin C - known for its anti-aging benefits, high antioxidant level and the ability to protect against pollutants and free-radicals. Along with the power to fade dark spots, hyperpigmentation, discoloration, blemishes and breakout scars, Vitamin C also helps diminish wrinkles, boosts the effectiveness of sunscreen for extra UV protection and regenerates collagen. Each box comes with six treatments and 2 complexion sponges.
Step 1: Truth Sugar Glow Polishing Mask
When you pop open the first circle you will find an exfoliating blend infused with honey, olive, shea, linseed and other conditioning agents which make up the moisturizing base. Infused in the base are granules that slough away dead cells to resurface, polish and smooth skin texture. Upon application there is a nice warming sensation and you leave the mask on for just 5-10 mins before massaging and rinsing. After this step my skin already begins to feel soft and supple!
Step 2: Truth 25% Vitamin C Concentrate
The concentrate is applied to dry skin and the consistency is very thick and creamy - similar to a rich body butter (but for your face). The oils provide intense hydration to nourish dry, stressed skin and you only need to leave it on for 2-3 mins before moving on to the last phase.
Step 3: Pure Truth Melting Cleanser
I found it a bit odd that cleansing was the last step but the gel is applied on top of the concentrate for a final boost. During this stage you may feel slight tingling as the treatment is activated and after 10-15 mins simply remove with a dampened complexion sponge.
The entire process takes about 30 mins but the results are bright replenished skin and the more you use it (once per week works for me) the better your results. The box retails for $66.00.
We’ve experienced some sweltering heat waves this summer and after a long, humid day I always need a little pick-me-up. The Facial Waters put a fun twist on traditional mists with an invigorating infusion of zesty fruit and healing botanicals.
They come in three refreshing blends: Truth -Energize & Invigorate (infused with mandarin, green tea and pomegranate) awakens the senses and revitalizes, Nurture Me - Soothe and Hydrate (with cucumber chamomile and ProVitamin B5) and Grease Relief - to purify and refresh (enriched with witch hazel, golden seal and comfrey). These cool mists feel amazing when used during travel, after a day at the beach, first thing in the morning, post-workout or before bed and you can use them under moisturizer and makeup. I also like to keep them on my work desk for a little pampering when I get writers block. The individual 118 ml bottles retail for $28.00 ea and there is a trio available with mini purse size bottles.
I’ve also been using the cleansing cloths and I like that they remove a decent amount of makeup while improving my skin with fantastic ingredients. The Brightening Vitamin C and CoQ10 formula supports radiance while wiping away dirt and oil. Each cloth is infused with rosemary, olive, grape and jojoba oils to moisturize and they don't burn or irritate my skin.
The Grease Relief Cloths are textured to exfoliate, clarify and refine pores with botanicals and calming eucalyptus. For those prone to acne, these wipes absorb pore clogging oil and dirt to leave skin totally rejuvenated. There are 30 cloths per pack and they retail for $19.00.
