I’ve tried numerous skincare lines, I’ll test them for about a month or so, but I always go back to my usual regime. This is the only line that has been able to break my old habits. It’s that good.
First things first: how do you pronounce “Ole Henriksen?” I don’t know about you, but I didn’t know for the longest time. The correct pronunciation is “Ooo-lah Hen-rick-sin.” Good, now that we’ve got that covered, lets dig in!
Truth To Go Vitamin C Wipes: These wipes are so refreshing yet manage to clean off a full face of foundation. They do take off my eye makeup to a point, but I still need to use a separate MU remover (mind you, I wear heavy eye MU). I noticed brighter and smoother skin after one single use! I tried using them AM and PM and it was a tad irritating to my skin, so I only use them at night.
Truth Serum Collagen Booster: Vitamin C does wonders for the skin. It helps boost the collagen production and also provides antioxidants (a few of its many benefits). The oil-free formula has a very thin consistency (it’s liquid-y!) but quickly penetrates the skin’s surface, so you aren’t left with a sticky feeling. It provides hydration (oily skinned gals, you still need hydration!) and nourishment. The best part? More radiant and glowy skin! I use AM and PM.
Invigorating Night Gel: This unique blend of AHA’s gently exfoliates the skin without drying it out. The algae extract nourishes the skin and the mucopolysaccharides bind moisture to the skin. The consistency is thicker than the serum but thinner than a creme. This is gentle enough to use every day (PM only).
Sheer Transformation: I originally thought this would be too thick for AM use, but the consistency is light and creamy. I cannot speak for its claims on fading skin discolorations, but I can say that it’s nourishing without making my oily skin more oily. It’s a nice dose of vitamin C and leaves my skin looking bright and fresh. If you do have any hyperpigmentation, this is a natural way to help lighten those spots. I use this AM and PM (making sure to wear something with SPF over it).
Power Peel: I’m always a bit skeptical when a cosmetic product claims to be a “peel.” To be clear, legally, you cannot buy actual chemical peels over the counter (the percentages depend on you state). Therefore, this isn’t the same peel you would get from an esthetician/dermatologist. That being said, this little product packs a lot of punch. The Almond Polish provides a nice mechanical exfoliation (make sure to wet your fingers before applying) without being too harsh. The Lemon Strip contains AHA’s and fruit acid, which chemically exfoliate the skin (dual exfoliation, score!). This is the step where I felt the most activity. The last step is the Chamomile Comfort mask, which you place over the Lemon Strip. This contains chamomile, primrose, and jojoba seed oil that soothe and calm the skin. Only use 1-2x a week.
