With his colourful, eye-catching packaging, nature-to-science formulas with spa-inspired results, no wonder Ole Henriken products are a big hit over the world. Having not tried Ole Skincare line before, I knew what my voucher code was going to be spent on.
I bought this face mask with my voucher purely because of its enticing name. Who doesn’t like the sound of Lemon Strip Flash Peel? Anyway, stepping away from the groovy name, this lightweight gelée exfoliates and resurfaces in one using miraculous powers of Lactic Acid, Glycolic and Natural Fruit Acids from oranges and lemons (the name gives it away!).
This gloopy gel texture was somewhat easy to apply without worrying about making a complete mess everywhere. Don’t you just hate it when you end up masking more of your bathroom sink than your face?
With most AHA/BHA products, its normal to feel a slight tingling sensation due to the nature of the ingredients. For me, I felt a very fate tingle on the skin that vanished within a couple of seconds. This delicious almost lemonade-smelling peel mask from the Scandinavian beauty expert absorb into my skin as if I hadn’t applied a single teardrop on my face.
It was rather pleasant and refreshing to use an exfoliant in a thick gel-like mask form, I really don’t use these type of products enough. If you aren’t overly fond of using scrubs or polishers then this would make an exceptional skin treat.
Talking about getting your glow on! The Ole Henriksen Pick Me Up Tonic is a face mist that not only provides the skin with nutritious, beneficial-skin ingredients but also delivers a “feel good factor” because of the refreshing, nurturing aromas.
Citric Acids (AHA) de-shines skin targeting the t-zone. The trio of fruit extracts Blueberry, Blackberry and Camomile provides the skin with a burst of invigorating energy from within. The wonders of Rosehip calms skin inflammation and irritation. Witch Hazel is also added into the mix to help soothe and mattify problematic areas; perfect for those with oily skin.
You can either apply with a cotton pad or mist over the face, neck and décolletage. For me, I like to inhale the scent and allow my senses to drift off into the fragrance world for a minute or two. Really though, who has time in this day and age to arse around with a cotton pad? I definitely don’t.
I’m telling you now, if it didn’t smell this deliciously-addictive I probably wouldn’t use it all the time, although I’m never disappointed by the injection of glow it gives my skin. For all you glow-getters out there, this is the one for you.
Whilst the face mask reveals an Instagram-ready flawless complexion and fresh-clean feeling the highlight is, in fact, the tantalising Pick Me Up Tonic.
