The Ole Henriksen Wrinkle Blur Bakuchiol Eye Gel Creme was announced back in February, and I couldn’t wait to give it a try, especially after trying the Ole Henriksen Lemonade Smoothing Scrub, and loving it. Bakuchiol is the natural alternative to retinol, and is described as creating a collagen-boosting buzz on the skincare scene.

“Here’s the science behind our vegan eye cream: The dual-action formula keeps actives separate and when you pump it out, they mix together to activate. Ribbons of bakuchiol (the purple swirls), which help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, are suspended in a blend of peptides, proteins and orchid stem cells (the clear swirls).
Once they make contact, it’s on. You’ll see instant blurring in the look of wrinkles and long-term results—significant improvements in firmness, elasticity and the look of dark circles. Plus, it also helps even out eyelid skin tone.
With a cocktail of powerhouse ingredients that come together at just the right moment, the magic truly is in the mix with this bakuchiol eye cream.”
The Ole Henriksen Wrinkle Blur Bakuchiol Eye Gel Creme is £42, and is described as being an eye cream which instantly blurs the look of lines around the eyes, firms the skin, improves elasticity and reduces the look of dark circles too.
It’s packaged within a plastic bottle, with a pump dispenser, and you can see the helix purple and white pattern of the product through the plastic. I like that Ole Henriksen created this product to have transparent packaging, so you can see the helix pattern, and the ribbons of actives inside the tube.
One of the reasons Bakuchiol is such a buzz ingredient right now, is because it’s said to be a retinol alternative to help with anti-ageing, but it doesn’t have the sensitivity issues which come with using retinols.
It doesn’t sting, irritate or redden the skin, but as well as bakuchiol, the Ole Henriksen Wrinkle Blur Bakuchiol Eye Gel Creme features other skin-loving ingredients too;
- Bakuchiol – A plant-based retinol alternative to help even skin tone, smooth texture and target the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Plant Proteins – Help reduce the look of under eye puffiness and dark circles.
- Sandalwood, Licorice Root + Chamomile Extract – Help condition and soften skin.
- Orchid Stem Cell – Helps reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin firmness.
- Peptides – Help condition the skin.
The Ole Henriksen Wrinkle Blur Bakuchiol Eye Gel Creme has a gel cream consistency, which feels super hydrating like a serum rather than a conventional eye cream. It absorbs quickly, and doesn’t leave any residue once massaged into the skin.
It never migrates into the eyes, but helps to make the eye area look more uniform, brightened and hydrated. I don’t have wrinkles yet, so I can’t comment on its efficacy at working on lines and wrinkles, but there’s over 500 reviews on the Ole Henriksen website, with many commenting on how amazing it’s worked on wrinkles, and firming.
Even if you’re yet to get wrinkles, the Ole Henriksen Wrinkle Blur Bakuchiol Eye Gel Creme is a super hydrating, smoothing and brightening eye cream, which layers well under makeup, and helps my concealer sit really nicely on the skin too, which is something I definitely look for with eye creams.
