Ole Henriksen '3 Little Wonders Bonus Collection' (Review)




Hey Everyone, 

This holiday season, high-end skincare brand, Ole Henriksen, wants to give the gift of great skin with their new '3 Little Wonders Bonus Collection' set. The set, which contains their 'African Red Tea Foaming Cleanse', 'Truth Serum Collagen Booster', 'Invigorating Night Treatment' and ' Sheer Transformation Moisturizer' works to brighten, hydrate and rejuvenate skin. 


"Revitalize your skin this holiday season with these multitasking marvels that work in synergy to brighten, resurface, and hydrate the complexion. Harnessing vitamin C, essential fatty acids, and alpha hydroxy acids, this remarkable [set] will transform your skin in as little as seven days."

While I am somewhat of a chicken when it comes to trying new skincare products (I didn't love my old routine, but it worked fairly well for my sensitive, acne-prone skin), I decided to bite the bullet and give the limited edition Ole Henriksen '3 Little Wonders Bonus Collecton' set a real try. Although I have only been using it for nine days, I am loving the results I am seeing thus far, and couldn't wait to share my thoughts on this limited-edition holiday set: 


Below is a closer look at the Ole Henriksen '3 Little Wonders Bonus Collection': 
Ole Henriksen 'African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser' (3.5 oz): 
With a mix of tangerine, grapefruit and orange extracts, Ole Henriksen's citrus scented 'African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser' works to remove impurities and makeup, while keeping skin nicely hydrated. Packed with Vitamin C (to brighten and firm), African red tea (an antioxidant) and borage seed oil (to soothe and nourish), this synthetic-fragrance and soap free cleanser is gentle enough to use both day and night. Having used an acne wash for the past three years, I was hesitant to try a new cleanser for fear that I would immediately break out. While I have only been using this cleanser for the past nine days, I have had absolutely no reactions (I do have the normal hormonal breakouts but those occur no matter what cleanser I use) and, instead, have found that my skin looks a lot more radiant. 


Ole Henriksen 'Truth Serum Collagen Booster' (1 oz): 
Enriched with Vitamin C and green tea extract, this anti-oxidant rich serum works to brighten skin, supporting skin's natural collagen production while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Oil-free, Ole Henriksen's 'Truth Serum Collagen Booster' absorbs quickly and is light enough to be used under makeup on a daily basis (I apply this in the morning after washing my face). While I haven't noticed a considerable difference when it comes to applying my makeup, I do think this serum is working (in combination with the other products in this set) to give my skin a more radiant appearance while slowly lightening my acne scars. 


Ole Henriksen 'Invigorating Night Treatment' (1 oz): 
Made with algae extract and alpha hydroxy acid complex, this light weight gel 'seals in essential vitamins and minerals' to deeply hydrate and nourish skin, helping it to appear smoother and more radiant. With a slight tingle (not burn), Ole Henriksen's 'Invigorating Night Treatment' works to resurface the top layers of skin over night (think of it as 'no work necessary' exfoliator), helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Of all the items in the 3 Little Wonders Bonus Collection, the 'Invigorating Night Treatment' is my favourite as I can already see (it's lightening my acne scars for sure) and feel (I wake up with the softest skin) its effects. 


Ole Henriksen 'Sheer Transformation' (1 oz): 
Light weight and oil-free, Ole Henriksen's 'Sheer Transformation' moisturizer works to hydrate and repair skin, while reducing the appearance of age spots (and acne scaring) and fine lines. Enriched with Vitamin C, Vitamin E, licorice and botanical fruit acids ', this silky moisturizer gently exfoliates skin, 'leaving you with a healthy-looking, smooth, radiant and refreshed complexion. I have been using this moisturizer both day and night for the past seven days and am loving it. While it is quite light in texture (I can wear it under my makeup no problem), I find it incredibly hydrating (the dry patches on my nose are slowly disappearing) and have definitely noticed my acne scars fading (I don't think it is from this product alone, but rather from the combination of all of the products in this set). 

Valued at $138 (the full sized serums cost $58 and $60 alone), Ole Henriksen's limited edition '3 Little Wonders Bonus Collection' retails for $84 CND and can be found at Sephora stores nationwide. I have absolutely been loving this collection and while I have only been using it for the past nine days, have already picked up a second set during Sephora's VIB sale (I also grabbed a set for my Mom). I have also picked up a few other skin care products (an exfoliating scrub and a firming eye gel) from the Ole Henriksen line, and can't wait to give them a try.
