Ole Henriksen The Works Review

Happy Football Sunday!! My team plays tomorrow night (And I'm hoping they win please lol) but I've been enjoying the games today. I found myself in Sephora a couple weeks ago forgetting that I'm on a makeup no buy and purchased this skincare set instead. I tried a couple samples by Ole Henriksen and have been loving this brand so far. I thought this set would be great to try out more products to see if they would work with my skin.



This set was 48.00 and comes with 5 skincare products to use day and/or evening. I already love the moisturizer that comes in this set and was excited to try everything else. Let's get into the reviews on each product.

African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser


It was hard for me to try a new cleanser because I'm still obsessed with my Aveeno ones. Directly from the Ole Henriksen website, this cleanser is enriched with anti-aging botanical extracts like naturally antioxidant-rich african red tea and Vitamin C. Its soothing, non-drying formula is strong enough to remove makeup, but gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin. Regular use will elevate your skin to new levels of clarity and luminosity. I have never tried any products with African Red Tea which helps calm your skin, slow down the aging process and strengthens the outer layer of skin. I really love this cleanser after using it for about two weeks. I love how gentle it is but still gets down and really cleanses your skin. I have noticed how healthy my skin has been looking lately. My Aveeno may have some competition here lol!!

Truth Serum Collagen Booster


I have come to really love serums in my skincare routine. It just took some time to find the right ones. This serum has been added to the list that I can use on a daily basis. Directly from Ole Henriksen, like a daily vitamin for your face, this high powered vitamin C complex helps smooth out lines and wrinkles and prevents further damage. Loaded with antioxidants to fight off environmental aggressors and moisture-binding ingredients to keep your skin nourished and protected, this aromatic serum is absorbed instantly and penetrates to the deeper layers of the skin to provide long term results. Sensitive skin prone to irritation will benefit immensely from the calming. This serum helps keep my skin moisturized and looking so youthful. It really absorbs into my skin and doesn't leave a oily or greasy feeling. 

Ultimate Lift Eye Gel


I was happy to see this in the kit because I have been on the hunt for a nighttime eye cream or gel. Wake up to younger-looking, refreshed eyes. This new and improved formulation targets the entire eye region to dramatically lift, firm and de-puff while you sleep. Powered by our proprietary ultimate firming complex of bio peptides and hyaluronic acid to lift the sagging eye lid and brow, restore elasticity and diminish crows feet and wrinkles. Expertly balanced with soothing cucumber extract and micro algae, the cooling silky-gel wraps the delicate eye region to soothe and de-puff on contact. An overnight moisture barrier plumps skin with hydration. By morning, your youthful wide eyed appearance is restored. This eye gel smells like cucumbers which is really refreshing before going to sleep. I love how it has a little bit of a cooling feeling when applying and it absorbs in nicely. I don't look so tired when I wake up in the morning but it's not like the results described on the site. I have only been using these products for about two weeks so maybe I'll see more results in another two. Overall I really do like this eye gel.

Invigorating Night Treatment


I was a little confused on what this product was in the set. I thought it was a mask or moisturizer but it is neither lol. From the website, this overnight resurfacer accelerates cell turnover to dramatically smooth texture & fine lines, even skintone & minimize appearance of pores with a 12 source AHA complex including glycolic, lactic & citric acids. Suspended in soothing purified algae & vitamin e, this concentrated blend delivers rapid results without irritation. Wake up to radically smoother, younger looking skin. This is basically a nighttime serum to help repair your skin from the harsh elements from the day. One tip is not to use this after exfoliating your skin, it stung a little but didn't irritate my skin. It feels so cool when I apply it and it makes my skin feel very soft. I have noticed that the pores on and around my nose don't appear as large and my skin looks amazing when I wake up in the morning. I really love this treatment.

Sheer Transformation 


I previously tried a sample of this moisturizer after redeeming my points at Sephora sometime last month and fell in love with this! My skin gets so dry when Fall and Winter hit and this has been doing an amazing job with keeping my skin moisturized. This product was one of the reasons I picked up this set! So sheer in texture, this luxurious oil-free cream feels light and silky as it penetrates the skin and helps fade discolorations such as freckles, age spots and sun damage without the use of chemicals. Instantly nourishes and retexturizes the skin, smoothes facial lines and provides intense free radical protection to prevent further damage. I still get pretty oily in my T-zone but this moisturizer settles into the skin and leaves my skins feeling so smooth. This is my new favorite!!

So that is it on the reviews of these Ole Henriksen products. I really love all of them and would repurchase the full size. Have you tried any of these skincare products? What were your thoughts? Comment below and let me know! Enjoy the week and see you Thursday!

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!



I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
