This is a second review in my series of the 3 little wonders set (a holiday set, these products are available separately from Ole Henriksen) that I received. The first was the truth serum collagen booster (http://iamthemakeupjunkie.blogspot.com/2013/02/review-ole-henricksen-truth-serum.html). This is the second step after you apply the truth serum collagen booster. It is proclaimed as a powerful night gel that helps to get rid of fine lines, dark spots, and breakouts with the power of alpha-hydroxy acids.
This was created to work in synergy with the body’s natural repair system. It is an oil-free, lightweight gel that contains a concentrated complex of alpha-hydroxy acids to help brighten the skin. The Invigorating Night Gel is nourishing; it has remineralizing vitamins and botanicals to help hydrate the deepest layers of the skin, while smoothing and refining the surface texture for a more noticeably firmer complexion.
Algae extract nourishes the skin with vitamins and minerals; alpha hydroxy acids (glycolic acid and lactic acid) renew skin cells, diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, soothes texture and balances skin tone. They also regulate overactive sebaceous glands to minimize blemishes. Mucopolysaccharrides act as humectants and bind moisture to the skin, providing superior hydration. The gel is also paraben free.
I feel that I am getting too biased here! I am starting to have a real definitive passion for the Ole Henriksen line. All of the products that I have tried are top notch. The Invigorating Night Gel is one of those products too. I have been using this for about 4 weeks now. I really wanted to get a good feel of the product. The first thing I would like to say is that like the other products in the line that I have tried, you only need a tiny bit to use over the face and neck. I am serious! I have a 1 oz. jar and I have barely made a dent in it. Second I can tell there is a large concentration of alpha-hydroxy acids because it does have that good “sting” to it when applied over the truth serum collagen booster. I know you can get products without the “sting” that are just as effective but I feel that it is working when it has it. That is just me.
Since I have been using these Ole Henriksen products my skin has never looked so good. I had some time that I took off from use when I was sick but even then my skin still looked great. I got right back on the products and I had one small blemish that I had to treat but this product helped with that. Lactic acid is good for regulating blemishes. Glycolic acid is good for helping with dark spots and to brighten the skin. Those two ingredients are top on the list, just after water. But having them that high on the list means that the high concentration of the acids work better. The water is just there to dilute them. I can say for the first time that I feel all of these products work better as a system. The Sheer Transformation Cream, which I will review next is the final step in a good basic skin care regimen that helps to fight fine lines and hyperpigmentation. They do have some treatments, and I really recommend the truth is in the eyes eye peel. Great stuff!
The Invigorating Night Gel comes in 2 sizes. There is a 1 oz./ $30.00. and 1.7 oz. for $45.00. It is available at www.olehenriksen.com, www.sephora.com, www.beauty.com, and the various other skincare sites online. It is available at Sephora stores.
