Ole Henriksen Power Bright Review


A couple weeks ago I received the Ole Henriksen Power Bright box in the mail from Influenster. I was pretty pumped because I love skin care but I've never tried this brand before. I had seen these products in Sephora before but had always passed over them because I didn't know how great they were and I'm really bad at trying new skin care products because I'm afraid they'll wreck my skin. (P.S. If you missed my unboxing video, check it out by clicking here!)

So let's get right to the contents!
The first part I tested was the Power Bright. This contains three steps: a polishing mask, vitamin C concentrate, and a cleanser. All three steps go together and there are instructions for how long to leave each step on. Check out what each step looks like when it's on and then my skin immediately after below:
Step 1. Polishing Mask
Step 2. Vitamin C Concentrate
Step 3. Melting Cleanser

My skin was incredibly soft and smooth when I was finished. I followed with the other two steps in the box: Truth Serum Vitamin C Collagen Booster and Sheer Transformation. Again my skin was still so smooth I couldn't stop touching it (I know so bad for it but y'all it was so soft!!).

Now I was a little worried that my skin would freak out and I would end up breaking out. I had some blemishes on my chin when I did this and I didn't want them to get worse. But moving forward I stuck with my normal cleanser after doing the Power Bright but switched out my moisturizer for the collagen booster and moisturizer (the Sheer Transformation). Y'all my skin hasn't been this clear in I don't remember how long. I don't usually struggle with acne but I've felt like my skin is just kinda 'meh' and dull lately. I love my skin again!! I hate wearing makeup over it now it looks so great!


Granted this picture was taken on my phone, but I just snapped a quick selfie to capture how my skin just seemed to glow. This was also post walk around the neighborhood so there's definitely no blush or bronzer on my skin at this point. Not to brag too much, but I really love my skin!

Overall I absolutely LOVE these products. The collagen booster and moisturizer have done wonders for my skin. For the most part it's less oily than it usually is (praise the Lord!) and I haven't struggled with a single breakout since starting it. I may be an Ole Henriksen convert after this! The prices are a little steeper than what I currently use, but for skin this great you definitely get what you pay for. I've linked each product below so you can check them out for yourself!
Power Bright ($55) // This comes with 6 little trios. The instructions say to use it three times a week. Maybe if you could use each pod twice it might be worth it? I could see this being used once a week and still giving amazing results though!

Truth Serum Collagen Booster ($48-$72) // This stuff is worth the money! I have some crows feet popping up and I swear this stuff has filled them in. Plus, you only use it at night and a little goes a very long way so even the small bottle will end up lasting a long time.
Sheer Transformation ($14-$65) // Again definitely worth the money!! What's funny is that it's not even listed as being a moisturizer marketed for oily skin but it's done wonders for my very oily skin. It's so light which is perfect for summer. This moisturizer is made to even your skin tone and it's definitely smoothed mine out. My face can get red places on it and it's definitely helped keep them at bay and keep my skin looking smooth and even.

If I had to recommend one product it would definitely be the moisturizer. The other products are wonderful but the moisturizer has done wonders for my skin in just two weeks. I'm almost out because I got the tiny jar and I can't wait until I get paid so I can buy a bigger jar.

Have you ever tried Ole Henriksen? Do you love it or is there another brand you love more? I'd love to hear about them! Let me know in the comments, ask me a question on Twitter or Instagram, or send me a snapchat (aerichardson)!
