Three Tried and True Faves from One Of Hollywood’s Favorite Spas

A few years ago, we heart this introduced me to the magical universe of Ole Henriksen skincare, and my subsequent obsession has been well-documented. First, I tested Express the Truth face cream, and was swept off my feet by its powerful results and scrumptious scent. Then my passion was stoked again when I got to experience the anti-aging one-two punch of Pure Truth Youth Activating Oil and Truth Serum.

All three products instantly became regulars in my skincare lineup, and I’ve ordered replacements many times directly from the Ole Henriksen website – especially after I made the happy discovery that there are always samples included with my orders.

These samples are what led me to three more splurge-worthy products that make me want to dramatically sweep everything non-Ole Henriksen off my counter. That’s how great these products are.


truth eye peel ($42)

After I read Stef’s review of an eye peel peel, Ole’s version went to the top of my must-have list. After I tried a sample, it went right into my shopping cart. As someone who LOVES to exfoliate, I’ve always been frustrated that exfoliating the eye area was discouraged by… well, everyone.

That is, until skincare genius Ole Henriksen developed a safe yet effective way to achieve the renewing benefits of exfoliation on the fragile skin around the eye. As directed, I apply a thin layer of the peel around the eye area (avoiding the lid, of course), and swoop toward the temple area.

While eye cream can be layered on top, I don’t find it necessary. In the morning, I can hardly believe how smooth and refreshed my eye area looks.


perfect truth cc eye crème ($26)

Perfect Truth aims to combine anti-aging moisturizer, SPF protection and illumination into one step.. a “multi-tasking miracle worker” indeed! The tinted cream gives such a beautiful finish, I don’t even need concealer on rare days when I’m well-rested.

Most of the time, I do apply concealer on top, and it goes on evenly and looks natural. The crème is moisturizing but sinks in immediately. And I swear, between this and the peel, my eyes look younger, brighter, better!


african red tea foaming cleanser ($30)

Tyna loved this cleanser when she tested it, and now that I use it, I understand why. It’s an anti-aging powerhouse with the same glorious citrus scent I love so much in the Truth line (thanks to grapefruit, orange and tangerine extracts.)

Named the best natural cleanser at the Natural Health Beauty Awards, its luxurious foaming formula is enriched with botanical extracts like naturally antioxidant-rich African red tea and Vitamin C. African red tea is purported to strengthen the skin and slow the aging process, too. I want my cleanser to work thoroughly without drying my skin, and this cleanser is perfect in every way.

By the way, all of Ole Henriksen’s products are formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates or animal cruelty… just a few more reasons Ole Henriksen has become my favorite skincare line ever!

  1. Oh, I NEED the perfect truth cc eye crème! Love the idea of a cream that also illuminates. And for only $26? That’s practically giving it away.

    Actually that’s one of the great things about Ole products; for high-end skincare it really is reasonably priced.

    I think my favorite product is the very first one I tried; the Truth Serum collagen booster. It smells divine, feels luxurious and makes my skin look great.

    But @turboterp – have you seen the Lemon Strip Flash Peel? It’s calling my name and asking to be a new favorite!

    1. @stef –You need that peel. Need it. It is magical. It’s made my skin look a few years younger and cleared up any and all blemishes. I can never be without it. If you want to try before you buy, Sephora had a free sample w/ the code PEEL (still good, requires $25 purchase) You will be hooked.

    2. There you go again, @stef , leading me to a product I can’t resist. I had not seen the Lemon Strip Flash Peel before. It sounds fabulous, and I’m sure it won’t let me down! And trust me, you DO need the perfect truth cc eye crème!

  2. I cracked up at the thought of you sweeping all the non OH products off your counter–if you ever really do this, I feel like it needs to be a GIF, definitely. And I’m all about the CC eye cream–I need something ultra moisturizing but with some decent coverage, and this looks like just the ticket!

  3. Every product I’ve used from the Ole Henriksen line has been amazing. Not only do they work magic, they smell heavenly.
