Ole Henriksen Nurture Me Cleansing Cloths

I try really hard to be good to my skin. I make it a priority to wash, treat, and moisturize every morning and night. At least once a week I do a deep exfoliation or some sort of mask. But there are some days when I am just too tired…or too sick…or, I admit it, too lazy to do my normal skin care routing. That’s when I reach for my Ole Henriksen nurture me™ cleansing cloths ($9). One cleansing cloth and my skin is cleansed of all makeup, as well as moisturized with Moringa Seed Oil and Borage Seed Oil. I can go to sleep knowing that while I may have skipped all of my fancy treatments, my skin won’t be clogged and nasty when I wake up.

Not only do I use these convenient little cloths on lazy nights, I also use them to prep my face for makeup, to clean my hands, and to freshen up after working out. Oh, and the best way to use them is to keep a package in the car when traveling. They are wonderful.

Now I am anxious to check out the other cleansing cloths from Ole Henriksen – the clean truth and grease relief. I can never have too much convenience in my life!  – Lisa

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum – your skin will only get better, that’s the truth!

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum

I promise to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I was told to do so by Ole Henriksen when I started using their Truth Serum. It’s pretty easy to do so since this is one great product.

The full name of this wonder is Truth Serum Vitamin C Collagen Booster. This is one of the premier items in the Ole Henriksen line. Like the other products I’ve used from Ole Henriksen it has the most delicious orange creamsicle scent. It’s pretty highly fragranced with a scent that I personally love. It’s not a true citrus scent because it’s on the sweet side of orange.

A serum is unlike a moisturizer but it has many of the same benefits for your skin. I use a serum because the consistency seems to penetrate the layers of my skin more quickly and efficiently. It doesn’t give me the full moisturizing of a cream but it is a perfect way for me to start my skincare routine.

Ole Henriksen’s Truth Serum was created to do several things for your skin:

1) It has a proprietary five-source vitamin C complex to support natural collagen production

2) It helps brighten skin

3) It products from free radical damage and the environment

4) It helps minimize fine lines

5) It is enriched with green tea extract and sodium hyaluronate to nurture and nourish

6) It contains Vitamin E to heal, restore, and nourish

Here are some of the key ingredients in this Vitamin C complex:

Orange extract supports natural cell turnover and purifies.
Grapefruit extract brightens with antiseptic and aromatic qualities.
Rose hips seed extract heals, repairs damage, and soothes.
Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate is very stable, safe, and non-irritating—the key to production of collagen.
Ester-c (Calcium Ascorbate) is a highly stable natural form of vitamin C found naturally in the body.

OK… now that you’ve read what it’s all about, let’s talk about how it works. First this is a water based product which is excellent for almost all skin types. You don’t really need to layer oil after oil or cream after cream on your skin. With Truth Serum you only need the smallest amount of it to work. My only complaint about Truth Serum is that if I’m not paying attention then I’ll get out too much. It doesn’t go to waste since I’ll use it on my neck but I really want to savor it for my face.

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum, more than you really need for your whole face

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum, more than you really need for your whole face

There is no oily residue but it doesn’t feel like you are just putting water on your face. When I apply it I let it sink into my skin before putting on any moisturizer or SPF product. I want it to get to work on its own. Since I’ve been using this I have seen an improvement in the brightness of my skin. I’ve been feeling more confident about using lighter foundations or even going bare faced (foundation-wise) out of the house. It contains Sodium Hyaluronate which helps replenish lost hydration and I’m all about hydration.

The fragrance lingers for about 10-15 minutes. If it were any other fragrance I’d probably complain or not use it as often as I do but I love the way it smells. I usually apply this as the first item on my face. I’ll then do my eyes before continuing on other facial products. That gives it time to sink in and nourish my skin.

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Vitamin C Collagen Booster is available in two sizes. A 1 oz size is $48 while the 1.7 oz size is $72. From the reviews I’ve read consumers may start small but their next buy is the larger size and I can see why. In the summer I can imagine being able to start with Truth Serum and then applying Perfect Truth CC Creme and being set to go. I’ll just have to avoid being around anyone that’s too hungry. — Marcia

Ole Henriksen Truth to Go Wipes to the rescue

Ole Henriksen Truth to Go Vitamin C Wipes

Ole Henriksen Truth to Go Wipes

It’s funny how tastes change over time. When facial wipes first came out I had no interest in them. I didn’t see the purpose of them. I bought a pack here or there but they’d often dry out for lack of use. That’s changed and I have a variety of facial wipes and use them for different purposes. My latest favorite is by Ole Henriksen and it’s their Truth to Go Cleansing Wipes which were sent to test.

I use wipes in a variety of ways.

1)      To refresh my skin during the day.

2)      To remove makeup instead of washing it off.

3)      As a blogger, to remove the swatches covering arms and hands.

4)      To “wash” my hands before eating out.

5)      To wipe off my little guy and his very sticky hands.

Ole Henriksen Truth to Go Wipes, 10 pack

With the Ole Henriksen Truth to Go Wipes I like having the 10 pack ($6) in my purse and the 30 pack ($15) in my bathroom. It’s not always convenient for me to get to a bathroom if I have a 2 year old in tow but with a pack of these wipes in my purse I can grab them and clean my hands off. I am very fussy about scent so if I forget his unscented baby wipes then I have my own orange scented wipes to take care of us.

Since I’m the ‘queen of hot flashes’ (an unwanted role in my life) I often need to wipe my face in a very gentle way. I don’t want to scrub, I just want to refresh. I’ll sometimes have mascara or eyeliner dripping down – and it’s seriously not a pretty picture. Ole Henriksen helps remove the grime without removing all my makeup. They contain essential fatty acids too that nourish the skin. Plus they are refreshing for me to use after an episode.

At the end of the day, I just don’t always feel like removing all my makeup. If I’m tired it’s easier to use a Truth to Go wipe to remove my makeup than it is for me to stand at the sink. While these are made to remove eye makeup too, they only help me on certain days. Since I wear an intense eye most days I’ll often need to start with a specific eye makeup remover and then get the remainder off with my Ole Henriksen wipe. I like to do that since they have Vitamin C and micro algae which helps brighten, firm and smooth the texture of skin.

I’m not going to pretend I don’t know that a lot of people use baby wipes in place of cosmetic wipes but unless money is a big issue I’d save the baby wipes for the kids. Using Ole Henriksen’s Touch to Go Cleansing Wipes is better for your face. They have skin care ingredients like the Vitamin C and micro algae mentioned plus green tea and alpha hydroxyl acids. They are formulated WITHOUT parabens, sulfates, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMOs and triclosan. Personally I have one face and I want to use products with ingredients I trust and that are made for me. Ole Henriksen has made these for people like you and me and I’m thanking them for doing so. — Marcia

Supercharge your eyes with Ole Henriksen Perfect Truth CC Eye Creme

Ole Henriksen Perfect Truth™ CC Eye Crème

This summer is the summer of CC Creams for me. It’s not that I don’t love my foundations and BB Creams but I think I’ve been spoiled by the letters CC. I’m constantly reaching for these as my face color of choice and Ole Henriksen’s Perfect Truth™ CC Crème with broad spectrum SPF 30 is getting an awful lot of use. CC Creams aren’t that terribly different than BB Creams but for me they have more color correcting and more coverage. Plus I’m getting the best of all worlds with good old Ole these days because I’ve been sent his Perfect Truth™ CC Eye Crème Broad Spectrum SPF 15 to test and share the results.

This CC Eye Crème is a triple threat because it not only protects my eyes with sunscreen, it also protects my eyes with its moisturizing and lightly conceals at the same time. The initials CC stand for Color Correcting and Ole Henriksen does this in a very soft way. If you need heavy duty concealing this isn’t going to do it but if you need to improve the appearance of your undereye area then you want to read on.

I almost always mix my concealer with an eye cream. I’ve been doing it for years. Perfect Truth™ CC Eye Crème saves me from that step since it is the eye cream. The moisturizing effect of this is great. The area under your eyes has the most delicate skin on your face and you need to care for it in a fragile way. When companies describe how to use their eye creams they always say to apply with your ring finger since they know you’ll have a lighter touch that way. No matter what finger or tool you use, don’t rub, just pat. That’s how Perfect Truth™ CC Eye Crème works best. You don’t need a lot either. This is an illuminating eye cream/concealer. It’s not flat so it gives my undereye area a very soft look. Almost like the camera stopped focusing on my dark circles and fine lines.

It’s loaded with wonderful ingredients:
-Proprietary Five-Source Vitamin C Complex: Brightens, firms, and strengthens.
-Tripeptide-5: Supports natural collagen and elastin; reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
-Ferulic Acid: Defends from environmental aggressors and prevents premature aging.
-Sodium Hyaluronate and Ceramides: Plump the look of skin while nourishing and replenishing moisture.

I don’t know about you but at my age I need all the strengthening, plumping and moisturizing I can get. This only comes in one shade but since the texture is so light I think this will work for just about everyone. You blend it in (with that ring finger) and you mostly see the moisturizing, not the concealing. I sometimes follow up with another concealer but most days I don’t need to. It seems to be enough for me lately. It illuminates under my eyes with light reflecting pigment that is meant to diffuse flaws. With time the skincare ingredients are meant to help brighten, fade spots and minimize fine lines. I’ve been using this about a month and I’m seeing the beginning of these effects. If I’m going out at night I’ll reapply this or another concealer just like I refresh my eyes, cheeks and lips.

I’m happy to have another Ole Henriksen product to keep me supercharged and protected from the damaging rays of the sun and the damaging everything of Father Time! — Marcia
