I mentioned my love for the Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Treatment Gel in yesterday’s post, but I wanted to expand on my opinion.
This product is one of many marketed to women with “aging” skin, but one of the few that I’ve found that actually produces results. The product contains AHA, to treat discoloration, uneven texture and wrinkles. Algae nourishes skin, and other ingredients promote hydration. It’s also free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.
When I started using the product, I had a bad patch of acne on my cheek that wouldn’t go away. It would look like it healed, but be discolored, then flare up again. After two days of using this product, that area was smoother, less red, and the darkness less visible. The rest of my acne scars have softened some over the past two weeks, and my existing acne is less red.
I can’t tell you how many (MANY) products that I have purchased that promise to fade dark spots and soften acne scars. The drawers of my bathroom are littered with failures. But this one actually works, and shows some results quickly. I’m excited to see what it can do for my skin in the long term.
