Review: Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturizer
Ever used a product you just couldn’t put down? That’s exactly how I felt about this moisturiser. In most cases, I test products for a few weeks, but with this nourishing moisturiser, I stopped using it when the jar was empty! Introducing Ole Henrickson skincare developed by Danish Cosmetic Chemist Ole Henriksen. The brand launched in 1983 and quickly developed a cult following because of its results and its simple philosophy of exfoliating, treating and soothing which originated in Ole’s Beverly Hills Spa. I can’t say I’m surprised this brand has withstood the test of time because if the other products in the range are this good, I’m an advocate!
Product name: Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturizer
What it does: A best seller in the collection and it’s easy to understand why! This oil-free moisturiser offers weightless hydration and perfects the skin with a luminous finish. It works to hydrate, even skin tone, improve skins texture and assists in diminishing the look of dark spots and discolouration. It is formulated with multi-fruit acids, liquorice and pea extracts to help gently refine uneven skin tone and texture. This silky, multitasking moisturiser is also the perfect prep step for makeup: It instantly smoothes skins texture and brightens, for flawless foundation application.
Results: This moisturiser looks rich and decadent, and when applied to the skin it’s instantly absorbed without leaving a greasy residue. Within minutes I found my skin looking clearer, brighter, soft and nourished. With a few weeks of use, I noticed a visible improvement in my skins texture with fine lines disappearing. I found when using this product my skin had a subtle radiance without looking shiny. My skin was also perfected as the name implies with pores looking more refined. I’ve used BB creams and foundation with this product, and it applies nicely and enhances the effects of these products. I noticed the difference in my skin when I stopped using this product, and I must say it was a noticeable change. An excellent moisturiser for anyone with combination skin, especially during the warmer months to assist with hydration, and without that heavy moisturiser feeling.
How to use: Apply this moisturiser both day and night. Massage in an upward circular motion.
