Ole Henricksen Skincare Review

 Two new products crossed my doorstep recently, both by Old Henricksen.

First, the Ultimate eye lift kit ($35) contains the Ultimate eye lift gel and the new Ultimate eye lift gel roll on.  Both gels give your eyes a firmer, brighter look with each use.  They both reduce puffiness and the look of fine lines and wrinkles.  The gel roll on is great for the morning.  It has no scent and easily glides onto your undereyes and brow bone. I immediately felt a cool tingling that continues for at least an hour.  It was a bit more intense sometimes than I liked (apply sparingly) but it did revive my just woken peepers.  It works under make-up and has cucumber and calendula in it for soothing relief. Alone it sells for $28.

The Ultimate eye lift gel in a jar sells for $38 separately and is for night time use.  Using the same cucumber and calendula for soothing and it applied to the same under eye and brow bone areas.  It is a light, non-sticky gel that goes on clear and has no scent.   It helps to relieve overnight puffiness and leave you with brighter skin and a more awake appearance.  It does relieve puffiness and my eyes did look a bit brighter after use.

Overall, it is a good kit to purchase when it comes to puffy eyes.  I think it makes a nice gift as well.

In addition to the Ultimate Eye Lift kit, Ole Henricksen created a 3-step Whole Truth kit ($45) for anti-aging. It works on all skin types and helps to firm skin and promote healthy collagen renewal, hydration for your skin, reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles while also protecting skin from harmful UV rays with a sunscreen.  Step 1 is using the ‘Truth Serum’ which  is a collagen booster.  Using Vitamin C with rose hips, green tea and orange extract it brightens skin while hydrating it.  It has a sweet orange scent that doesn’t linger and feels really wonderful when applied.  Step 2 is more hydration containing even more Vitamin C in its Advanced Hydration Complex.  I love that you can use it in the morning and at night.  It’s such a good all-in-one cream.  Step 3 is my favorite. It is an eye creme with SPF 15 in it.  It is so hard to find an eye cream with sun protection yet this area is so delicate and can really be ruined by the effects of the sun.  The Broad Spectrum UV protection in this eye cream is fantastic!  It contains Omega 3 for nourishing and hydration and micro algae and peptides to firm  and strengthen the skin.

Ole Henricksen and his Hollywood spa are known for treating celebs and giving them a refreshed look and feeling of well being after each visit.  The at home kits and products aim for the same experience.  You can purchase Ole Henricksen kits and a wide array of other skincare products online and at Sephora stores.

MPR Rating: Four Stars (both kits).
