Taking good care of your skin is an absolute must, I think we all know this. But what is the best skincare out there? When should you splurge and what actually works? Which brands make the best products? Of course that all depends on your skin type and what you are looking for, but here are some products from the Ole Henriksen line that hit the top of my list.
The Face the Truth Gel Cleanser lives in my shower. As soon as I’m done with a workout, I can jump in and use this baby with my Clairsonic to make sure I get any sweat blocked pores cleared out. Pro Tip: Just remember to always turn down the water temp when washing your face in the shower – hot hot water can dry out your skin! This has a great energizing citrus scent and contains grape seed oil which helps cleanse and soften the skin.
On days when I want a little extra face fun, I’ll start with either the Transforming Walnut Scrub or the Transforming Almond Facial Polish (looks like maybe the almond one is now only sold as part of their 3-step Power Peel set.) These both have a pretty gritty consistency and work as a physical exfoliators to work off some of the dry texture and dead skin cells on the face.
After rinsing, I slather on a layer of the Instant Transformation Lemon Facial Peel. This is literally one of my favorite skincare items from any brand. It contains glycolic and lactic acids which go to work on any skin discoloration. As a person who has quite a bit of melasma, this product is a life changer. I’ve gotten my skin pretty used to acids, so I leave the Lemon Peel on for longer than the 10 min. recommended time. After rinsing off, I can see a noticeable brightness and reduction of the dark spots. My skin instantly looks better and that is why I love this product!
Then I’ll apply their best selling Truth Serum which has vitamin C which helps brighten as well as firms and supposedly fights wrinkles. I’m not sure I can speak to any change in wrinkles from any product I use – if you ask me Botox is the only thing that truly helps in that department (wink) – but I do think this helps with evening out the skin tone.
Lastly, the Nurture Me Moisturizing Creme….(sigh). If you haven’t smelled this product, I don’t know what you are doing with your life! It is the scent of the best fruit smoothie in the world. It is literally the most delicious smelling lotion and is a delight to put on your face. Besides smelling wonderful, it is the perfect medium weight creme where it actually moisturizes all day but does absorb into the skin and isn’t greasy. It has a variety of vitamins designed to nourish and soothe the skin.
~ Takeaway ~ If you are looking for a line of great skincare products, I definitely recommend checking out Ole Henriksen. They have so many products available to help you with whatever your specific needs are. These are just the ones I like best for my dry and age-spotty skin. It is important to take the time and really pamper your skin. Not only is it fun, but you’ll thank yourself when you start to see results and in my opinion, these products truly do the trick!
