Who is Ole Henriksen? Imust be hiding under rock because, had absolutely no idea & now for some reason after receiving some of his products to review he is popping up everywhere. To answer the question he is a Scandinavian skincare expert who was born in Denmark & who has devoted his life to skincare & cosmetic chemistry.
He started his career as a dancer & model & developed cystic acne, was cured, & developed a passion for skincare. He went to the College of Beauty in London & upon graduation he opened Ole Henriksen of Denmark skincare center in Beverly Hills. He becamevery well known appearing on talk shows, writing books, & eventually being recognized as the skincare guru to the stars. He launched his first line in 1980 & was bought by LVMH in 2011 making his skincare brand prosper globally. As of today, Sephora is his #1 retail partner & he refers to it “as a marriage made in heaven”. His products are supposed to make you be able to experience the spa experience at home. I tried two of his products below:
Invigorating Night Treatment
SIZE 1.7 oz/ 50 mL $48.00
A lightweight facial gel to make your complexion look more youthful. It works to seal in vitamins & minerals & diminish fine lines, wrinkles, & smooth texture. The product contains no parabens, sulfates, or phthalates & is vegan.
To use, at night, apply to clean face, neck & decolete &follow with a moisturizer
Grease Relief™ Facial Water
Size’ SIZE 4 oz $22.00
A facial mist that purifies & mattifys the skin with an herbal botanical blend of lactic acid, golden seal, & hops extract. This is recommendedfor oily or combination skin. It solves the problem of oiliness & uneven texture/dullness. The product contains no parabens, sulfates, or phthalates.
To use, mist 5 sprays onto a cotton pad & smooth on a dry face in a circular motion.
I really like both of these products. They really did mimic a spa like facial on my skin. The night treatment was much more needed for my skin as I do have fine line & wrinkles. I did see a slight improvement after a week & I feel with more treatment I will be more than satisfied with the results.
The grease relief went on my skin & definitely felt amazing, but my skin is more dry than oily so it is not the optimal product for my skin type. I do believe if you had these skin types, you would be satisfied with the results as the products seemed to get positive online feedback. The prices were fair & the product is a good value. A professional facial at a spa these days is at least $90 & these products both together were substantially less than that. With Ole Henriksen’s experience & passion for skincare, I do believe in his products & would definitely purchase in the future.
