So I may or may not have let out a teensy tiny scream when I found this little orange and yellow package sitting on my doorstep the other day. Turns out the contents were totally scream worthy, in the best way possible. They were Ole Henriksen products after all.
Thanks to the amazing peeps over at Influenster, who sent over the products, I’m bringing you a full review of not one, not two, but three…count ’em, 3 products!
Being the avid Sephora
stalker supporter that I am, I’ve heard of Ole Henriksen but hadn’t really given any of their products a chance before. Hence, the excitement when checking the mail. Who doesn’t love trying new beauty products?
The first product I spotted was the Truth Serum Collagen Booster, it just seems like such an iconic Ole Henriksen product but like I said, I’ve never tried it before and I was deeply intrigued. I admit, when I first applied this product, I was a little confused about what was supposed to happen. Should I be looking out for a brighter complexion or one that’s more plump & hydrated. To be honest, as a dry skin girl, I was hoping for the latter. What I got in return was really a mix of both, especially when paired with the next product I’m going to talk about. I definitely noticed a bit more radiance and my skin didn’t seem so dry and flaky afterward but nothing too miraculous. The only downside, however, is that this stuff is pretty sticky after you apply it.
Remember when I said I was a dry skin girl? Yea, well, that pretty much makes this little guy my new BFF. I could feel a difference in my skin after the first application, which is the sign of a true winner in my book. It has this incredible texture too, creamy but not heavy. Honestly, it manages to be creamy and gel-like while being hydrating but not sticky. Great for summer skin that can get a bit oily at times, even us dry girls can have our moments.
Even at first glance, it appears this next product is what the whole box is centered around. The brand new POWER Bright is “a professional-strength three-step brightening system with an unprecedented 25% vitamin C concentrate to deliver maximum radiance in as little as one use.” Fancy, huh? I actually really enjoyed using this product. It was fun to try first thing in the morning, smelt lovely, and really did brighten my complexion but it was a bit daunting. Three steps is a lot when it comes to one product, especially when each step has a different set of instructions to accompany it. However, I definitely enjoyed the exfoliation and brightening effect but would most likely reserve this for more of a pamper day than every day use.
