In this post, I talked about some Ole Henriksen skin care products I picked up from Sephora. In one of the kits was a cute lil’ jar of this clear gel.
That’s not a photo of a cute lil’ jar. It is actually a photo of a cute medium-sized bottle.
That’s because I went out and bought the full sized bottle because I loved it so much.
From the website:
- Algae extract Nourishes the skin with vitamins and minerals
- Alpha hydroxy acid complex Renews skin cells, diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, soothes texture and balances skin tone. Regulates overactive sebaceous glands to minimize blemishes
- Mucopolysaccharrides Binds moisture to the skin and provides superior hydration
- paraben free
I didn’t expect too much from this when I started using it because I feel like gel treatments can’t do a whole lot for my two fine lines and blemishes. However, within a week of using this (topped with Sheer Transformation), I saw AMAZING results! My face looked smoother, clearer, more youthful, radiant and I actually felt like I could go without foundation if I felt like it.
I didn’t feel like it, of course. You know I love foundation. If I ever say I don’t love foundation on this blog, that’s how you know it’s been hijacked by an imposter.
So, in other words, I recommend this. If you have sensitive skin, be careful because this may be a little harsh for sensitive skin. Try to get a sample before you purchase the large bottle. For everyone else fast approaching 30, try it out!
