Ole Henriksen On The Go Cleanser

Friday 19 June 2015


I think that it is about time I share my thoughts about this *amazing* cleanser.  After about two years of constant use, it is safe to say that this product is more than a favourite: it is a necessity.  
This cleanser is a medium thickness clear orange gel.  It has a bit of a citrus scent and is enjoyed as much by me as it is my boyfriend!

"A truly uplifting, naturally aromatic cleanser that's loaded with orange extract and concentrated Vitamin C. This water-activated cleanser has a rich, glossy texture that smoothes as it gently cleanses the skin."

The bottle retails for $26.50 (Sephora) and I find lasts me about six months.  With this product a little goes a long way, I use it probably four times a week.  I use it with a konjac sponge and find that together it foams up modestly and leaves my skin feeling clear, tight, and bright.  I believe that I have purchased this cleanser four or five times.  I have taken it to Paris, Ireland, Israel, Germany, Poland, and all across North America!  All of that is to say that for me, this product is a real winner.

Among other things, this product contains Vitamin E, and grapeseed extract, and oranges.  Together they brighten, smooth, and calm skin.  My skin is not sensitive, and I do not suffer from acne so I can not speak to its powers for those concerns.  However, I find it is a great cleanser to keep my skin healthy and clean.  I have never had an issue with it, and I find the citrus scent to be super refreshing!
