Ole Henriksen is a brand I’ve seen feature on many blogs, but I’ve only ever tried their Grease Relief Oil-Free Pore Refining Cleansing Cloths which are face wipes that contain a mixture of acids to exfoliate and dissolve dead skin cells. I’ve really wanted to branch out and try more from Ole Henriksen, but I’ve just not known where to start until I came across their new Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Creme. The Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Creme is a regenerative treatment which is to be used at night time so it can work its magic whilst you sleep, and claims to renew and re-texturise the skin.
The nourishing night creme works to balance and brighten the skin whilst you sleep, and is infused with youth-enhancing ingredients to smooth the texture of your skin whilst fortifying the skin’s natural barrier. The cream contains an Alpha Hydroxy Complex which is enriched with glycolic, lactic and fruit acids that deeply penetrate your epidermis to encourage cell renewal to reveal smoother skin.
It also contains a Fruit Acid Complex containing a concentrated cocktail of bilberry, sugar cane, sugar maple, orange and lemon which work to lightly exfoliate the skin’s surface, breaking down the bonds of dead skin cells and boosting elasticity of the skin’s surface.
The cream is extremely rich, and once you’ve massaged it into the skin, you can feel it on your skin which I personally quite like as it feels as if it’s working as it doesn’t just disappear into nothing. The scent is OK.. it’s not horrible, but it’s not the nicest of scents in all honesty, but the scent does disappear once you’ve fully massaged it into the skin thankfully.
The cream takes a good fifteen to twenty minutes to fully absorb, and it doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy or tacky but it feels so nourishing and lovely on my dry and dehydrated skin. After applying the cream, I feel a very subtle tingling sensation on any blemishes or dry patches which is from the acids but it’s not at all uncomfortable for my sensitive skin but you really can feel it ‘working’.
Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Creme £47 – Escentual
In the mornings, my skin feels so soft and smooth and I’ve definitely noticed a massive improvement in the texture of my skin; especially with my uneven dry patches which look unsightly under foundation. This cream really does re-texturise the skin, and my skin has never felt as smooth and even as it has done since I introduced the Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Creme into my skincare regime.
My skin is looking so healthy and plump at the moment which I imagine is down to the cream, so overall I’m really pleased with the results. There’s no denying it’s an expensive skincare addition, but considering I’ve seen noticeable improvements to my skin’s appearance and texture, I’d say it was worth it.
