My Latest Obsession: Ole Henriksen

So I’ve never been super ‘big’ on skincare – I use it for a while then stop, or forget, or run out and then don’t use it for months. Then I get on the bandwagon again when my skin has a meltdown and breaks out etc.

So as of right now, I am back on that skincare bandwagon, and let me tell you, I’m obsessed!

I recently jumped on the ‘your skin but better’ band wagon, and all I have heard is raving reviews on this Ole Henriksen guy – So I caved to the peer pressure (a.k.a. Instagram) and gave it a go. Sephora is our Australian stockist of his products, so that was my port of call.

Skincare in general, is expensive as shit. But I was pleasently surprised by the price point and size of the products. Which is always a nice thing.
So I’ve picked up a few products and tried them over the last 4-5 weeks. And baby am I impressed!

Now keep in mind, I only use these products once a day, which is at night after I’ve removed my makeup (For this I use a FaceHalo).

So let’s jump in and see what products we got and what they’re all about, and then I’ll give you a final review of how my skin is feeling and what I loved about each products, cause let’s be real, I’m not gonna gush about it for 4 paragraphs then tell you it was shit 😛

My Thoughts

I am so stoked with everything I got my hands on from the Ole Henriksen line of skincare – All the products are so beautiful, the packaging is effortless and travel friendly. And overall, I feel comfortable using it all on my skin. I have SUPER sensitive skin and am always nervous to try new skincare as I always get irritated, but nothing even smelt a bit off, everything smells lovely and fresh, and it all applied so nicely.

The product size is amazing. My eye cream and moisturiser look like I only just bought it, but I’ve been digging into them for over a month! So a little really does go a long way! 🙂

Other than dry/dehydrated skin, I don’t particularly have ‘issues’ or ‘acne’ or anything like that, so my expectations for my skincare aren’t typically higher than ‘make me feel soft and supple’ – And these products definitely delivered on that front.
My skin feels amazing and I love how smooth my face looks after all my pampering 😀

If you’re after some new skincare, and you want beautifully made products that make your skin feel amazeballs – Then definitely hit up Sephora and see what you think of the Ole Henriksen range, I’ve been so impressed! <3
