Yesterday, I was tweeting about the love that I feel for Ole Henriksen’s Pure Perfection Night Creme when I realized that I’ve never posted about it before. Well, this is a grievous wrong that needs to be rectified immediately because the product is legen–wait for it–dary.
In fact, it’s so good, that it will make you forget that you need it. Then you’ll stop using it, and things will go all haywire, and then you’ll swear next time you’ll be more diligent.
Ole Henriksen’s products are all-natural and chock full of vitamins and minerals that will leave your skin feeling amazing. Pure Perfection (Amazon, $45) is packed with beta carotene, fruit acids, and vitamin C.
The beta carotene protects the skin from free radical damage. This is great for women who spend time in the sun, or have existing sun damage.
The vitamin C and fruit acids exfoliate, heal irritations (acne), minimize wrinkles and increase cell turnover.
If that seems like a lot of mumbo-jumbo to you, let me explain it another way.
I’m on the 23rd day of a record breaking acne fusillade all over my face. I’ve been beating it back with every weapon in my arsenal, but since I cut back on my beauty product purchases last year, I didn’t have any Pure Perfection. ( I know, I know, but I was trying to be fiscally responsible.)
On Tuesday, I stopped into Sephora and thought, “You know what? I’m going to buy some Pure Perfection. Sure, it’s $45, but if it helps this nightmare on my face, it’s worth every penny.”
When I woke up Wednesday morning, after using the product just one time, my skin was 50% better. The smaller irritations were gone. The larger ones were less inflamed. And the rest of my skin looked brighter, firmer and smoother.
At that moment, I looked in the mirror and said to myself, “With God as my witness, I will never buy drugstore night creme again!”
Okay, so it wasn’t that dramatic. But Scarlett O’Hara, I’m not.
There is no amount of money that I wouldn’t pay for clearer skin because nothing makes me feel worse about myself than acne. And yesterday, for the first time in weeks, I felt pretty.
It’s a small matter when you consider all that happens in the world, but when you look in the mirror and like what you see, it can make all the difference. So while a night creme may not be able to change your life, it can certainly brighten your day.
