OLEHENRIKSEN Face The Truth Gel Cleanser is marketed as a concentrated Vitamin C cleanser that removes dirt, oil and impurities leaving the complexion clean and revived. It has an energizing citrus scent and produces a satisfying lather with very little product. • 🤓 Key Ingredients include Orange extract (Oranges are one of Ole’s favorite ingredients), which is known for its invigorating properties and Vitamin C content and Grape seed oil which helps cleanse and soften skin. • 🧡 I really wanted to love this cleanser. I’m already partial to Vitamin C and citrus scents so I had high hopes going in. I enjoy this cleanser for the most part, where it falls short is that it does not rinse as clean as I’d like. Whether I double cleansed or not I still had to follow up with cleansing water just make sure my face was clean enough to proceed with my routine. Using a muslin face cloth helped mitigate this, but I don’t like to use one of those every time I wash my face. Sometimes after washing my face I just want to pat in some toner and move on, but I need to be confident that my face is clean to do that. I don’t have that confidence here, so I will continue to use him with the extra caveats, but I wont be purchasing the full size when he’s done.
OLE HENRIKSEN-Face the Truth Gel Cleanser
✨ OLEHENRIKSEN Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturizer is intended to hydrate, even tone, smooth texture and help improve the look of dark s and . It is formulated with multi-fruit acids, licorice and pea extracts to help gently refine uneven tone and texture. Sheer Transformation has a whipped silky texture (that reminds me of drunkelephant Lala Retro but not quite as rich) absorbs quickly, layers well and is not heavily fragranced like some of the other products in the Ole line up. 🧐 I mainly used it at night in conjunction with the Invigorating Night Gel, but did try it a few times during the day and remarkably it wasn’t too heavy. 💙 This moisturizer is also great for makeup prep because it smoothes texture allowing foundation to be applied flawlessly. Dimethicone is listed as the third ingient and I strongly suspect that this is behind the ‘instant smoothing’ effect. I do not usually wear makeup so this feature does not appeal to me as much as it may to others and I worry about breakouts due to the trapping potential of Dimethicone, but luckily so far so good. .
🔶 I have decided to wrap my Ole feature early. The Balance line Controls oil, mattifies and reduces the look of pores without stripping skin. Key ingredients include their Green Fusion Complex™, which is a proprietary blend botanicals such as green tea, eucalyptus, algae and Irish moss extracts. They all also include neem, AHA’s and BHA’s. I enjoy the minty fresh scent of this line more than all the Ole products I tried. The Oil Control hydrator is good for when I’m really oily, the cleanser is meh and the scrub is phenomenal. 🔶 This is a makeup lover’s skincare brand; everything is made to make its application as flawless as possible. They do not shy away from silicones and use palm derivatives. Personally, it bothers me that such a huge successful company in the industry for over 30years has not come up with an alternative to palm oil in their formulas. But the more I reflected on it, the more I realized that the onus also falls on me as the consumer for not looking into the ingredients before purchasing. .Thank you for the outpouring of love and support yesterday while I took a step back. You guys continue to enrich my life in so many ways and I am grateful to each and every one of you.

Sleeping masks are leave-on masks that are intended to stay on the skin overnight. Due to the extended stay, they do not contain any harsh active ingredients that would cause much irritation if left on the skin. They tend to contain intense hydrators in combination with antioxidants and anti-aging ingredients often in gel-like formulas to enhance the penetration of the active ingredients and maximize overnight benefits. Night creams, on the other hand, are usually geared toward moisturizing and nourishing dry or irritated skin and is less concentrated than sleeping masks and is intended for daily use as opposed to a few times a week. . . 🌬 SNOW ALGAE + OXYGEN FUSION Fresh Glow Perfect Sleeping Mask is marketed as a multitasking radiance treatment that works to firm, lift, plump and smooth skin by restoring its youthful, radiant appearance and tone.

It is a beautiful blue hue with a silky texture that absorbs like a dream.

I love how easy it is to incorporate into any existing routine because you just add it as the last step before bed. It is a bit too hydrating to add over a rich night cream or oil for me ，but winter is coming and I know this is going to be a skin savior in those harsh months!
