Ole Henrikson Skincare Review All Skincare Types
I have to be honest, Ole Henrikson has changed the way I view skincare. It all started with the Ole Henrikson Truth Serum and I noticed I had glowing skin that I couldn’t remember ever having. That made me think that I needed to change my skincare regimen completely. Recently, I have tried a new skincare regimen that consisted of only Ole Henrikson products. Skincare is everything!

Ole Henrikson Vitamin C Collection
The Ole Henrikson Vitamin C line is all about addressing visible signs of aging. Vitamin C helps promote a glow while reducing fine lines and wrinkles. The line also contains an advanced Hydration Complex that delivers hydration all day long. These two mega benefits create a formula that is unmatched for anti-aging or at least preventative aging.
I tried the Ole Henrikson Vitamin C serum once and returned it. I bought it back from Sephora the next day. I was unsure about the price and what it would actually do for my skin. The Ole Henrikson truth serum, is a specialized formula that brightens, firms and fights visible signs of aging and promotes collagen. Full disclosure: I’m 33 and felt like it was time to step up my skincare game and be proactive in fighting the preliminary signs of aging. The key benefit to this product is the vitamin c that carries antioxidant properties for the skin. It’s a fast absorbing oil free formula that is applied on a clean face in the morning. Not only does it feel good, it smells great with a hint of orange waking you up in the morning. When I first started using the truth serum, I thought I didn’t notice a different but when I stopped using it (during the return days), I noticed my makeup was dull. Also, I loved knowing I was fighting the aging process on my skin all day without even realizing it. This product if you buy nothing else, is a must have!
One thing is that the Henrikson Truth Serum lasts a very long time so don’t be too shocked by price because after using this product you’ll understand the value in it!
True-C Complex–stabilized vitamin C derivatives formulated to help brighten the skin and fight visible signs of aging; also delivers antioxidants
Collagen–helps improve skin’s youthful elasticity
Orange and green tea extracts–help nourish skin
Aloe juice–helps soften and condition skin
The Truth Advanced Moisturizing Creme brightens and hydrates which is the theme of the truth line. It also tightens skins and reduces the look of wrinkles. This is a perfect moisturizer for after you apply the Truth Serum. According to the Ole Henrikson website, the Advanced Moisturizing Creme contains Advanced Hydration Complex™, infuses skin with multiple sources of continuous hydration throughout the day as it brightens, firms and reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles. With vitamin C and tri-peptide-5, this age-defying crème works overtime to keep skin moisturized for a soft, supple and youthfully radiant Ole Glow™!
Sure, you could use soap and water and be done with it. By why not continue with the citrus theme and go full Truth facial? I was looking for a cleanser that was soft on my skin and left me feeling fresh. The Clean Truth Foaming Cleanser is light on skin and doesn’t strip your skin of its natural oils. I wash my face at night so read the last section to find out what nifty little treat I put on top of a freshly cleaned face!

Ole Henrikson Transform Collection
The Ole Henrikson Transform Line is all about exfoliating and renewing the surface of your skin. It is a good idea to combine the Transform Collection with other different Ole Henrikson Collections which is what I typically do. The ingredients in the transform collection focus on AHAs and other treatments that help to change the skin for the better.
The sheer transformation perfecting moisturizer, is the holy grail of products in my skincare regimen. I was looking high and low for a moisturizer that had an SPF in it. However, as I did more research I realized that SPF made moisturizers thicker and less enjoyable to put on. When I tried the Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturizer for the first time (over the truth serum), it was like my skin took a huge drink of water. Not only did I actually feel amazing but it dried clear and fast so I can apply my makeup right away. I’ve become so addicted that I bought the large size vs. the mini that I’ll keep for travelling. Another must have by Ole Henrikson skincare regimen. My skin is also acne prone and I use this moisturizer every day and never feel greasy or heavy.
Multi-fruit acids (lemon, orange, bilberry, sugar cane, sugar maple)–help even skin tone and texture, lactic acid
Antioxidants–help nourish and condition skin
Sandalwood, licorice root, and chamomile extracts–help condition and soften skin
The night time stage of my skincare regimen is new to everything I’ve been doing. However, I felt it was important to take care of my skin for an entire 24 hours. after you cleanse your face, apply the Night Transformation Gel which is a serum with a similar consistency as the Truth Serum. I like to apply the Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturizer on top so my skin isn’t too tight as I sleep. Also, I have realized that if I have a break out, the Invigorating Night Serum makes my acne disappear overnight. I just discovered that this year and whenever I have a breakout I use this serum and wake up to clear skin.
This is a new product from Ole Henrikson – the Glow2OH Dark Spot Toner is a game changer for the transformation collection. The Glow2OH Dark Spot Toner will help eliminate sparse spots on your skin. Perhaps you’ve tanned too much? Or you have some discoloration that you hope to correct? There’s a high concentration of AHA (similar to the Invigorating Night Serum) that will help with overall skin tone. It is infused with sandalwood, camomile and licorice extracts to help your skin tone post cleansing. Very safe for everyday use and has a lovely lemony-sugar scent!

Balance Control Collection for Oily Skin
The Oil Control Collection is a personal favourite of mine. Make sure you are familiar with your skin type first before venturing into this collection. The Oil Control Collection can be drying and if you aren’t sure if you have oily skin I would confirm before using this line.
The Oil Control Collection lasts all day and does not let oil control your face and encourage shine.
The Counter Balance Oil Control Hydrator mattifies the skin and pores with rosehip fruit extracts and AHAs. This is a lightweight hydrator that helps keep pores clear and skin matte all day while still maintaining hydration and doesn’t dry out skin. This product also helps improve the lasting effect of your foundation so that you’re not bothered by oily skin (tip – read my post on The Best Foundations for Oily Skin here).
If you have oily skin, you may not be able to find a moisturizer that hydrates and doesn’t leave you greasy. This is different than the Counter Balance Oil Control Hydrator because it you can just wear it on its own. The great thing about the mattifying moisture creme is that while it does the same mattifying and controls pores and excess oil, it is also non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t cause acne. It also contains oat flour which helps to calm the skin and control shine combined with soothing aloe vera gel. Honestly, this moisturizer is more like a gel than a creme which is why I like it so much.
Sometimes, it is better to use the entire collection so that your skin gets used to similar products. Ole Henrikson conveniently packages these up so you’re getting better value for your money purchasing all of the products from one collection up front. In the Balance It All Full Size Oil Control Regimen, you’re getting the following:
- Balance Oil Control Cleanser – Lightweight cleanser to help control oily pores
- Balancing Force Oil Control Toner – Concentrated astringent that helps reduce excess oil
- Balance Oil Control Hydrator – Lightweight moisturizer to keep pores balanced by hydrated all day long
The savings ends up resulting in 18% because the value of this set is $85 and you’ll only be paying $70.

Ole Henrikson Nurture Collection for Dry Skin
The Nurture Collection from Ole Henrikson is for the dry skin types. It helps to soothe and replenish natural skin and comfort irritated skin. Some of the main ingredients in this collection include: Aloe Vera, ProVitamin B5 and pleasant scents such as lavender.
The Wonderfeel Double Cleanser is one of the best sellers from the Ole Henrikson Nurture Collection. It is a deeper clean than the Foaming Truth Cleanser because it is a double cleanser meaning that it gets further down into pores. It is also a cold cream that although acts as a deep cleanse, it isn’t too harsh on the skin.
The Berry Nurtuing Gel Mask contains ProVitamin B5 which is an overall nourishing vitamin. It also has a subtle lavendar scent to make you feel invigorated, almost spa like. It hydrates, nourishes and soothes the skin to help replenish it and make it soft and supple for makeup application. If you feel like your skin is on fire then you will definitely want to try the Berry Nurturing Gel Mask.
In this article for the Ole Henrikson Skincare Review, we talked a lot about the different moisturizers for the different skincare collection types. The Nurture Me Moisturizing Cream is the moisturizer that is perfect for dry skin. If you are concerned with redness, this is the best Ole Henrikson moisturizer for your skin type. It also contains vitamins A, B5 and C as well as sunflower and rosehip oils. If you aren’t sure what your skin type is, The Nurture Me Moisturizing Cream is the perfect moisturizer to start with.
