OLEHENRIKSEN Skincare Products {Review}

OLEHENRIKSENI've mentioned before that I'm just not one of those people that are dedicated to taking really good care of their skin... even though I wish I was. I know I should do more to keep it healthy and protected and replenished and all, but I just don't seem to be able to get into the habit.

Someday I'm sure I'll regret not having followed a stricter routine but it's just difficult to even know where to begin. There are so many different (and often FAR too expensive) products out there promising to keep away the wrinkles and give me a perfect complexion that they can't all possibly work, can they?

For me, I just want clear, clean skin and products that do what they claim. And now I know that, after years of sharing his advice with top beauty editors, celebrities and clients in his Hollywood spa, Ole Henriksen has a solution to every major skin concern with his line of OLEHENRIKSEN skincare products.

OLEHENRIKSEN reviewOn a mission to create effective products that allow customers to experience the transformation of their body, mind and spirit, OLEHENRIKSEN products and treatments are designed to elevate skin to the best it can possibly be. Sounds like something to strive for, right?

With a synergy of the highest quality natural botanicals and the latest state of the art equipment and technology, OLEHENRIKSEN products are made with antioxidant rich ingredients and are designed to target and treat every skin type and concern, from anti-aging to acne and everything in between.

With so many cleansers, toners, cremes, masks, body care, anti-aging, soaks, scrubs, and more, I wasn't sure where to even begin. Right away I appreciated that you are able to browse through the OLEHENRIKSEN products on their website by category or by concern, as I felt that it made it easier to narrow down exactly what my skin needed.

And when the OLEHENRIKSEN Firm Action Mask and Truth To Go Wipes arrived, I could tell right away that these were excellent choices!

OLEHENRIKSEN skincareCreated for all skin types, the Firm Action Mask is designed to give you firm skin with tighter pores. Made with soy flour, kaolin, and echinacea to constrict and refine the skin, this mask gives you an instant lift without a drying effect.

Opening up the 1.7 oz jar, I found a grayish mask with a sweet, pleasant scent. Following the instructions, I applied a somewhat thick layer to my clean skin and could instantly feel a tingling feeling as the mask began to harden.

Firm Action MaskWhen it came time to remove the Firm Action Mask, it was easy to wash off and my face was noticeably softer and smoother than it had previously been. Success! Even in the short time that I have been using this product, I do feel as though it has helped give my skin a deep cleansing that it needs to stay fresh and clear.

Retailing for $27, depending on how much of your face you use this mask on and how often you apply it, one small jar really can last for quite a while!

And, for when I'm not at home but still want to keep my face cleansed and clean, the Truth To Go Wipes have been just the thing to carry with me to pull out whenever the time calls.

Truth To Go WipesMore than just a package of hand wipes, the Truth To Go Wipes from OLEHENRIKSEN provide moisturizing and age-defying properties in each one. These wipes are formulated without any parabens, sulfates, synthetic dyes, and phthalates (as well as more gross chemicals) and instead include naturally based cleansing ingredients to remove even the toughest makeup.

I love the portable, soft-pack pouch and the way that it stays sealed shut no matter if I've got it thrown in my purse or gym bag. I simply pull open the top and grab a wipe to gently remove any dirt or grime that I feel building on my face from having walked around outside in the heat or having put in a good workout at the gym.

OLEHENRIKSEN wipesAs well as the nourishing, soothing feeling, I really like the Truth To Go citrus vanilla scent for the way it gives a little extra boost when I otherwise might be feeling hot and greasy. And knowing that these are helping brighten, firm, and smooth the texture of my skin at the same time? Well, that's just a huge added bonus!

Retailing for $6 for a pack of 10 and $15 for a pack of 30, OLEHENRIKSEN's Truth To Go Wipes are going to be tagging along on quite a few outings with me this summer!

With an aim to help every client become his or her own skin expert, Ole Henriksen has created a collection of products that seem to really be able to follow through on their claims of delivering maximum results for your skin. With so many more great-sounding ones available (online or in-store), the question seems to be: Which one to try next?
