Ole Henriksen : Three Little Wonders

17 Feb




My thoughts on some of Ole Henriksen’s best-selling products. ( First pic) This is my second jar, and nope…I didn’t finish the first one. I bought my first jar as part of a promotion pack, included together were The Truth Serum and Sheer Transformation Cream. I finished The Truth Serum way faster than the other 2, and somehow I decided to give away the products to my aunt. Few months later, my aunt came over and I was suprised to see her skin -smooth, flawless, healthy-looking and wrinkle-free (my aunt is 51) . She also looked radiant and glowy. I asked her what did she use and she replied , “well, the ones that you gave me, I think the night gel is great.” How come it didn’t work that well on me? I must say I didnt give it much time , and besides, because it stung my skin a little, I didnt use it as often. But seriously I was truly amazed by the results my aunt had that the next thing I knew, I was at Sephora.

If I could only have one skincare item, I’d choose a serum….and sunscreen. Ok..ok ..did I say just one? Sigh…Ok, serum would be my choice .

What is a serum? Do you need it? Does it really work? Or is it just another marketing strategy by skincare companies to ploy you into thinking you need more than you actually do?

Serum is a specialised treatment that is used on cleansed face or after toner, before moisturiser. It contains highly concentrated nutrients and antioxidants in their active form. Due to smaller size molecules, serums are able to penetrate deep into the skin unlike moisturisers. That’s why serum comes with a heftier price-tag! Most serums are designed for all skin types, though some formulation are best to address specific concerns like wrinkles, pigmentation, dullness and sagging skin.

Hi ladies,

Do you remember the ever famous ‘beauty’  question ’ if you were stranded at a desert island, what 3 beauty items would you want to have with you?’. Yeah, i know ..i know..who’d be thinking about beauty stuff then? ( a friend said she’d need a concealer, lipstick and mascara…she wanted to look good when people discovered her at a lost island, she might end up on TV).. haih!!!

The idea is to come up with the 3 most important beauty items in your life. To some, this is an easy task. Well, is it? Aha…we’ll see!

I didnt have to think too long about this. Mine would be :

a) Sunscreen, of course!! I use my Obagi SPF 50 all the time!! ( and besides, it’s a desert right?)

b) Vaseline. It’s a moisturiser and a lip balm, 2 in 1.

c) Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair. My fav serum. The sun is likely to have damaged my skin and causes premature ageing. So serum is a must and this one is so darn great, i tell ya!

What would you have brought with you?

P/s – It’d be pretty boring, so I’d bring my books along 🙂
