One of my summer goals has always been to get into skin care, and this summer I did exactly that. Sure, I can be “lazy” when it comes to skin care because the way I see it is that it’s just another thing to do in the morning and at night. I have always been the type to just remove my makeup, wash my face, and go to bed! Okay, I may have lied. I didn’t ALWAYS remove my makeup after a long night out, but I did try to do it often. Nonetheless, before this becomes too rambly, I decided to try out different skin care products this summer. For this I went to one of the best places on earth: SEPHORA! I went to the skin care section and probably looked like a goof ball, since I had no idea what I was looking for or what I wanted to achieve with my skin. A few skin care specialists helped me out and I was set. KIDDING! It’s not that simple to find the perfect skin care products, I tried a few things before I found my current obsession: OLE HENRIKSEN.
Disclaimer: always try new products in a small area on your arm and not straight on your face. Sometimes your skin might not react too well to certain products.
Ole Henriksen is an amazing Danish skin care line which compliments all skin types. Sephora conveniently had the perfect set that I was looking for. This set includes three bottles, an AM and PM anti-aging serum and a moisturizer. These three products claim anti-aging, brightening, hydration, firmness, night treatment, and much more! I have been using it for a few weeks now, and I must say I am in LOVE. These products have proven to be honourable to their claims. Specifically, the AM serum claims to strengthen the skin, and you actually do feel the firmness occurring when you’re applying it to your skin. Additionally, this routine does not require a million steps and it is simple as can be. All you do is use the AM serum in the morning and follow it immediately with the moisturizer. For nighttime, just use the PM serum, followed by the moisturizer once again and you are set. How simple was that? I am the type who cannot be bothered to apply a million different creams and serums on my face; I am the type who loves her sleep! With everything these products promise, I must say I will be repurchasing indefinitely.
*Tip: I would definitely suggest taking the serums and the moisturizer down the neck to ensure the same care*
In terms of pricing, Old Henriksen is a bit on the higher end of things. The set I bought was around $86CDN. But it is worth it for the size of each individual item, which is 1 fl.oz. This set will last much longer than others because a little does go a long way.
My skin feels so much better since I started taking care of it a bit more. It’s much softer and glowing, perfect for the summer season.
Until next time!
