New Skincare Obsession: Ole Henriksen
If you follow along on my Insta Story (@chicago_latte), you know that I'm writing this while watching the Emmys and shamelessly indulging in Halo Top (a mix of oatmeal cookie and birthday cake, and it is fantastic). But this post is not about delicious, low calorie, low sugar, high protein ice cream. It's about another new obsession of mine...Ole Henriksen 3 Little Wonders.
I've collected drawers full of beauty samples over the years, and it really takes a lot for me to try a sample and like it so much that I go out the very next day to buy the full-size product. But that's exactly what I did with this kit. About a year ago, my skin started to act up in ways I hadn't seen in years. It was angry, acne prone, and sensitive. My skin was like a rebellious teenager trapped on my thirty-something face. I tried a lot of acne treatments (the best of which turned out to be just $5 from the drugstore), but the thing that made my skin look and feel healthy again was Ole Henriksen.
The Ole Henriksen 3 Little Wonders set is your full-day skincare routine in one box. I wouldn't call it an anti-acne kit, it's actually an anti-aging kit that just cooperates really well with acne-prone skin. Each of these items are available individually (in larger sizes), but the set is a great deal if you want to try out all three without over-investing. Plus the smaller sizes are convenient for travel. Win-win!
Here's what you get in the set:
Truth Serum: I use this every morning under my moisturizer/sunscreen, and it's wonderfully fresh and brightening. It also smells awesome (vitamin C) and sits well under makeup.
Invigorating Night Transformation Gel: All three products in this kit are amazing, but I think this is the real gem. It's a powerful serum with concentrated AHAs (glycolic and lactic acids) that shockingly don't irritate my skin. It evens skin tone, fights signs of aging, and kicks acne in the butt. Use it at night before your moisturizer, and let it sink in a minute before adding the next layer.
- Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturizer: I love the way this makes my skin feel! I use about a dime-sized dollop across my face at night after the Invigorating Night Transformation Gel. The package suggests using it morning and night, but I prefer a daytime moisturizer with sunscreen.
So there you go. I'm obsessed and will absolutely repurchase once I hit bottom on these bottles. Have you tried any other Ole Henriksen products? If so, I'd love to hear your recs in the comments below!
