WHY I LOVE FINDING AWESOME NEW BEAUTY BRANDS: MY STORY OF FALLING IN LOVE WITH OLE HENRIKSEN

by Christina



MEETING NEW BRANDS:

I think that sometimes we can get into "ruts" with our beauty routines-it's somethings super easy for most of us to do! But I've found out in the past few years, that switching it up, finding and trying new brands, and sharing those experiences with others has really been beyond beneficial for me in the long-run! That's where Ole Henriksen comes into play for me- I've hear of the brand a little and did see it a few times in the Sephora stores and online a couple of places, but I still for some reason decided to stick with my most recent fav Peter Thomas Roth for cleansing needs. It's really been my go-to since it's been very good to me and kept my breakouts at bay, but I also decided that it was finally time for a change too! 

WHAT I CHOSE TO GET:

Going to the store was my best bet this time around, as I wanted to really see what the brand had to offer and possibly get a good kit. The kit that I ended up getting was the Ole Henriksen The Works Kit $52. Now with ONLY 6 reviews on Sephora.com for example and just  a little over 810 loves there as well, it's not what seems to be a highly sought-out kit. It DOES however, have FIVE STARS on 5 out of 6 it's rating submissions for a reason! 

WHAT IT CONTAINS:

- 0.5 oz Invigorating Night Treatment™ face gel 
- 1.5 oz African Red Tea foaming cleanser 
- 0.5 oz Sheer Transformation® moisturizer 
- 0.25 oz Ultimate Lift Eye Gel™ 
- 0.5 oz Truth Serum® vitamin C collagen booster serum *these are ALL travel-sized versions of their products, BUT there are VERY generous sizes and they are going to last you a good while! DOES NOT have: Parabens, Sulfates, & Phthalates! They ARE Cruelty-free too!!!! :)

THE END VERDICT:

The final results-I am really glad that I gave these products and brand a try! The Cleanser was just awesome-it left my face feeling VERY smooth and just looking so fresh! It also only took 2 small pumps and I was good to go with very good suds and coverage to actually clean my face! My pores looked a LOT smaller too, which is something I do struggle with daily! As for the Moisturizer- it has a very light and fluffy texture so it's very lightweight and doesn't leave you with a greasy or oily feeling afterwards. It's easy to put on too because of the light formula and therefore you can put a thin layer on that really does leave your face feeling moisturized and soft. The smell it great too for such a power-packed lotion. The eye gel was very cooling to the touch and it did NOT take very much at all to place a generous amount as the instructions advised-I saw an immediate difference too in the under eye darkness that I often have due to a full-time schedule with lack of sleep!

The serum is fantastic as well and comes in a glass pump bottle so it was easy to get a small amount out, which was all it really took to cover my whole face and neck area! It smelled very good for a serum which I found quite unusual, but I could tell this was attributed to the high concentration of Vitamin C that was contained in the serum. The final product, the night treatment face gel is the only item in the kit that I am not as excited about, but that is due to the fact that I am still getting into using overnight creams! I've only added that recently to my beauty routine as something that I do regularly , but I will be adding to this as one of night creams that I do use! It has a nice scent and will leave you face feeling extra soft in the am. when you wake up, but I did not notice that it was any more fantastic than some of the other night masks and creams I've used in the past.
