HElllloooooo and once again it is another Voxbox time! This time is skincare oriented. Ole Henriksen skincare. I will be honest, I have never heard of Ole Henriksen before Influester sent me these products to try and review. So I am going into this with unbiased opinion. Yep.
I was sent products that are for both Am/PM and a full skin care 3 step system. This skincare regime is all about that “Ole GLow”
It claims that it is powered by Green Fusion Complex, neem seed oil, and AHAs.
THe complex is a proprietary blend of active botanicals like green tea,eucalyptus,kelp,and Irish Moss extracts. It is supposed to help control oil, mattify, and refine the pores. It has a massive peppermint and Eucalyptus scent. I mean MASSIVE. It is really really strong. Right off the bat that was the first thing I noticed. It hit me like a baseball bat to the face! WOW. My eyes watered.
Like I said, I am entering this with unbiased opinion. I have tried a lot of the products that I have gotten before from Influesnter before, or at least know the brands pretty well.
So, let us dive into each product shall we?
First up the oil control cleanser
It is pretty thick and smells heavily of the peppermint and eucalyptus. It does foam up nicely and my skin felt clean after use, no irritations. save for the smell, which normally doesn’t bother me.
The Balancing Force oil control Toner
This toner has salicylic acid and such and it tends to sting a little. But, it works well for refining pores and toning. As well as control acne. Although truth be told I didn’t notice much of a difference between this and say the clean and clear. But, no weird skin reactions which is good. Also same smell.
The counter balance oil control hydrator.
I like that it comes in a pump bottle. makes life easier. THis one ALSO has that same smell, and is supposed to help control shine and oils. mattifying. ETC. It didn’t mattify for me. My skin was still shineyand after a while a bit oily in the t-zone. I haven’t noticed a big difference in the longevity of foundation. It did make my skin feel nice and smooth after use. It was nice. And as far as the smell of the product it was not as strong as the others. Which is good. I keep mentioning smell, because for some people it can make or break a product for them. But, it isn’t a lingering smell.
I have been using these products for a bit and I will say I do like them. Will they replace my RODIAL or Nip +FAb, as well as Cetaphil. Maybe not. But, if you like Ole Henriksen, then you may like these. They are not bad products, I just prefer my other ones. I think for at night I will keep using the hydrator and use the Cetaphil moisturizer for the day(it has SPF) and then continue with the toner.
