How I fell in love with Ole Henriksen's productsI first learned about this wonderful skincare company through my mom. She had gotten a sample of the Ole Henriksen (OH) on the go cleanser and the pick me up tonic. She first introduced the company to Tia, since Tia has always been the one suffering from break out, uneven skintone, and oily skin. After my sister tried out the samples she were happy about the outcome that she ended up buying different products from OH online and I decided to do the same, simply because I wanted to take better care of my skin. It was during a time were I had already spend tons of money on different scrubs and moisturizers without finding a good one. Since I didn't have anything to loose beside more money I thought I would give OH a try and it's probably the best thing that I have done for my skin. As of today this is how my OH collection looks like:
|A lot of products that I no longer own or are half empty are not included here.|
How to get startedI recommend people to start out with free OH samples and make a lot of research. Really go into Sephora and smell to the products as well as read the ingredients, because so many delicious things are put into each product. I think it can be discussed whether Ole Henriksen's products are actually that pricey. They definitely cost more but they are also very long lasting. Just a little product gets you a long long way. Personally I purchase all my OH stuff on sale. I already know what I want to buy and just buy it when I can get it for an acceptable price. I think it's important to pay a little more to keep your skin young and fresh now while you can, than when it's too late, because it might be more expensive in the long run once the damage has taken place. If you do feel that OH is something for you and you are looking for more than one product in your skincare routine the starter kit would be the cheapest and best option for you.
The starter kitsThe starter kit was made to introduce new costumers to OH. It's a kit that contains everything you need for your skin in the period you use it. To get the most efficient outcome of each product and to find out if OH is something for you and your budget, I suggest that you don't use any other products during the time you use your kit. There are three main kits that you can choose from depending on your skintype. The sensitive/dry kit, normal/combination kit and the blemish-prone kit. If you are +35 or aging signs has started showing I recommend you to go with the african tea one. For younger people that kit is not recommended.
Each kit contains 6 pieces that can all be purchased individually and after owning most of the products in all the kits I would say that they are all lovely and nothing should disappoint you, but instead guide you to which products that are the most fit for you. Here is the lists of the starter kits as well as what they contain, and their purpose. I will slowly put up the reviews on most products once they have been published.
