Olehenrikson #Oleglow Challenge

Back in April Olehenrikson reached out and asked if I would be interested in receiving some complimentary products to review as part of a 3 week skincare challenge. Since I’ve used and like their products I said yes. After filling out a survey regarding my interests and skincare needs I received the following products

The C-Rush Vitamin C Gel Moisturizer was one I had received a small sample of in the past but nothing enough to help me form an opinion and I have the Banana Bright Eye Cream which I enjoy so I was happy to get to try more of this line.

I was especially excited to try the Glow2OH toner because I had my eye on this for a while now due to the dark spots on my cheeks.

Here is my over all review based on 20 days of using only Olehenrikson products including the following gifted products:

▫️Banana Bright Vitamin C Serum 

▫️C-Rush Vitamin C Gel Moisturizer

▫️Truth Juice Daily Cleanser

▫️Good Night Retin-ALT Sleeping Cream

▫️Glow2OH Dark Spot Toner

I also used the Olehenrikson Phat Glow Facial Mask mask (purchased in my own) and the banana bright bright eye cream (also purchased on my own) 

Over the last 20 days I’ve only used the five gifted products for my skincare routine and I have seen a very noticeable difference in the overall health of my skin.

My skin has a natural glow and is lacking the dullness I had when I started this routine. It looks more hydrated and suptle and has made applying makeup so much easier because I require less to get that healthy look I like.

The biggest difference has been in the redness and dark spots on my cheeks. I’ve been so self conscious about these areas and I always have to add some more foundation here but after 20 days of using these Olehenrikson products I find myself with a lot less to cover up!I didn’t expect to see much of a difference because the challenge coincided with work trips to a much colder environment than where I live and with a vacation to a much hotter environment but having these products helped keep my skin balanced. There were a couple of days while on vacation that my skin felt so dry and even got flakey, but after two days of using the overnight cream, the Vitamic C Serum and the gel creme my skin was back to feeling soft and smooth.

I was happily surprised at the difference just 20 days made and have already shared my results with friends and family with high recommendations!

I’m so happy and grateful to have gotten to be a part of the Oleglow challenge and will definitely continue using these products and looking to add more into my routine!

Have you tried any of these or any other Olehenrikson products that your would recommend?

Fresh Kombucha Cleansing Treatment review

I was gifted this cleanser through Octoly a couple of months ago and I’m hooked!

This is a no-rinse cleanser that offers skincare that “refines the look of pores , and protects the skin’s barrier with prebiotic inulin” for clarity.

What is inulin? In ways I was able to understand: it acts as food for the good bacteria that lives on our skin which makes sense why it claims to protect the skin’s barrier.

I love that this removes my makeup and doesn’t leave any kind of residue but does hydrate and soften my skin.

This is a product I’ll definitely be purchasing and highly recommend even if it’s used after or along with another cleanser.

Wander Beauty Mascara

If you have any kind of beauty subscription you’ve probably received some variation of the Wander Beauty mascara more than once.

This gold packaged volume and length mascara is the latest one I’ve tried.

I used two coats on top and one on the bottom. Overall I like the way it made my lashes look, it wasn’t too wet when first opened and it gave me good volume. I did notice that in between the two coats, which I applied one eye then second eye, back to first eye then second eye, seemed to dry fast.

The one thing I can’t get down with is the packaging. I’m sure it’s better than a tube, because you can squeeze the last of the product onto the wand, but it’s too unconventional for me. The other thing I noticed, which it didn’t say on the packaging, is that this is waterproof, which I prefer not to use.

I like the mascara and would recommend it if you’re looking for a volumizing waterproof mascara.

Sephora Sale!

The Sephora sale is almost here and, I can’t believe I’m saying this, there isn’t any makeup I want 😳

I am repurchasing the Algenist Genuis Liquid Collagen which I bought during last year’s sale and still have some left but will probably run out by the time the next sale comes around.

I can really see a difference in my forehead wrinkles when I use this under my makeup.

The next item on my list is the Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb perfume

I’ve heard so many people talk about this and finally got a travel size and completely fell in love with it!

What are you getting or what would you recommend?

Sephora Worthwhile Reward

I finally found a reward that feels worth it at Sephora. If you’re a Rouge member you can exchange 2500 points for a $100 gift card that expires 90 days after you exchange it.

Don’t snooze on this though, they sell out fast so remember to check the rewards bazaar on Tuesdays!

I used mine to get the Natasha Denona Sunset palette 😍

Make sure to read the fine print! Whatever you get can’t be returned or exchanged, unless it’s exchanged for the same product.
