I have a confession to make: I am not very good about skincare. But the truth is, I WANT to be good, and nothing gets me in the mood to actually maintain a consistent skincare routine like having an exciting new set of products to try. Meet the Ole Henriksen Unwrap Your Radiance Collection*. I’ve only been using this for a week, so this isn’t a full review, but with the 20% Sephora VIB sale going on, and the fact that you really have to test skincare for months to know for sure, I decided to share my thoughts today anyway. Because even in a week, I can tell you, I’m in love.
Ole Henriksen Unwrap Your Radiance Collection comes with six products in deluxe sizes which I think would last maybe 2-3 months when used twice a day as intended, although that’s just my best guess. It’s really everything you need for a complete skincare routine, which means it’s a fantastic way to test out the brand and would also be good for travel as everything except the cleanser (4 mL too large!) fits into airline restrictions for liquids.
Ole Henriksen Unwrap Your Radiance Collection includes the Ole Henriksen African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser, which I am completely in love with it. You don’t even need a full pump of the product to wash your face and neck, and it has a yummy citrus scent. I also don’t find it too drying. I use it in both the morning and at night, and in the morning I then follow up with the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster. Again, I need more time to give a full review, but so far I have definitely seen an improvement in the texture of my skin, it really does feel softer! My final step is the Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation moisturizer, which is oil-free, lightweight moisturizer that I’ve had no issues using before applying my makeup, even with areas of my face that are oilier like my t-zone.
So I’ve got these products from the Ole Henriksen Unwrap Your Radiance Collection in kinda the wrong order, because at night, my first step is to remove my makeup with the Ole Henriksen The Clean Truth Cleansing Cloths. These are cult favourites but they are quite expensive, so a set like this is a great way to try them out (unless you end up wanting to buy all of them…). They also have a citrus scent that I love, and although they are as wet with product as I prefer they still do a good job removing makeup except really stubborn mascara. There’s not oily residue left behind and my face actually feels nice and clean after using.
I follow up again with the Ole Henriksen African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser, before applying the Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Youth Acitvating Oil to my skin. This is an orange oil that can be used in the morning as well, but I prefer to stick with it at night because it is oily. Vitamin C helps brighten your skin, and although it’s too soon for me to say that this is the most magical product ever, I can tell you that in combination with the rest of the Ole Henriksen Unwrap Your Radiance Collection my skin definitely is looking more radiant!
My final before bed steps are the Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Gel and another layer of moisturizer, although I could go for something heavier at night-time and I do use a separate eye cream as well.
If this gushing post didn’t make it clear, I am a really big fan of the Ole Henriksen Unwrap Your Radiance Collection and I think it is a fantastic way to really test out the brand. So far, my skin looks amazing and I haven’t gotten any new blemishes while sticking to this routine either. This would make a great holiday gift, or a gift to yourself.
Have you tried any Ole Henriksen products before? I have a lot of unused skincare but I would definitely be tempted to repurchase the cleanser and serum in particular.
