Pros:

Loads of delish ingredients.

Cons:

Not an efficient scrub.

More:

This year autumn did really give my skin a proper beating (that and my newfound love of going out twice a week for some proper dancing and alcohol). So each Friday I‘m all glowy skin from my sheet masks, 8 hours sleep and veggie diet. And then afterwork and GTs come my way and by Sunday I look 10 years older (but feel 10 years lighter cause I‘ve had so much fun). So I keep on restoring my skin to then break it down. And some would say this is stupid, and I should stay home more – but I can‘t I‘m having too much fun.

So buying this mask is just another measure to restore restore and restore my skin. First of all it‘s extremely sticky, you feel like you are wearing a layer of sugar literally (but two of its ingredients are raw sugar and honey so it makes sense). It takes ages to wash off cause it feels like you are wearing a coat of syrup. This mask contains loads of yummy ingredients (pure honey, rosehip oil, pomegranate seed powder and pumpkin extract) and promises to make your skin glowy and exfoliate it. I think it does give my skin a great glow, and after using it in the evening I can definitely still tell a difference next day.

About the exfoliation – well I believe in a proper scrub, like your skin should even itch a bit after – and I simply don‘t feel that with this mask. The grains are pretty large but the thick surgery texture of the mask makes it impossible to massage it in your face – cause you just get so sticky and uncomfortable.

Conclusion – it‘s an ok mask – but I won‘t repurchase it.

Ole Henriksen Berry Nurturing Gel Mask Review

s1910751-main-hero

Pros:

Actually the price – for once – since you need so little per use, this jar can last you for a year or more.

 

Cons:

Doesn‘t provide “deep hydration” – but rather has a brightening effect, which not always is enough in a rough winter climate.

More:

I don‘t have much experience with Danish Ole Henriksen products, but I like his smiley face and eternal sunshine optimism. Plus my friends use Ole and his partner as an exemple when he forces me to make plans weeks in advance (apparently Ole and his partner use their calendar to map out their romantic gatherings which is foreign to a spontaneous time anarchist like myself). Anyways – this mask makes me feel like I‘m in a spa – it smells lovely of lavender and despite being a gel, is not sticky at all. The effect: my skin feels refreshed and brightened after use, and my skin very smooth. Minus: if you need deep hydration during the cold months this is not sufficient.

Review of Ole Henriksen Grease Relief Cleansing Cloths

Pros:

Easy wipes to use if you don‘t have time to wash and cleanse your face properly i.e. you‘re drunk and tired and would rather spend your time spooning a hottie, or snoring under the duvet in your 60 eur facemask.

Cons:

Wetwipes can cause skin allergies, not suitable for everyday use because it doesn‘t clean deep down.

More:

Danish happy fella Ole Henriksen is also known as the Cream King, his products are usually very expensive but I thought these were reasonable compared to similar product on the market. As i often have problem skin with acne, I wanted wipes that were fresh–feeling and non comedogenic. The wipes have quite a strong pepperminty eucalyptus fragrance, and are a little harsh on the eye area. They have a lovely bumpy side that is slightly exfoliating, leaving my face refreshed and 90% clean. I would recommend to always use moisturiser after using this product as it can dry the skin, and – as you‘ll know by now – cause accumulation of talc and slight acne.
