“OLEHENRIKSEN 12 Days of Ole Glow Skincare Advent Calendar First Impressions”

Ole Henriksen is one of the brands I want to explore more after being impressed with the Truth Serum and the Ole Henriksen Instabright Power Set so I was instantly intrigued at the sight of the 12 Days of Ole Glow Skincare Advent Calendar in Sephora’s website.

To top it off, it went on sale from $62.00 CAD to $59.00 CAD during the VIB 2017 Reward sale which means I’m eligible for a $20.00 off! I ended up snagging this beautiful set for just $39.00 CAD (tax not included) which is such an amazing deal!

I finally receive it in the mail and this I’m seriously impressed and excited to finally start using all of these goodies.

The packaging is gorgeous with its Christmas inspired design and does feel sturdy.

Once you open it, you’ll be welcomed with yet again super cute Christmas related images.

My excitement of course took a hold of me and I opened each and every box!

This set contains the following:

•Truth Serum (7ML)•

This is sold for $19.00 CAD for 15 ML and this has been a staple on my skincare essentials for the past few months so I’m super thrilled to get it on this set.

•Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturizer (7ML)•

Available for $15.00 CAD for 15 ML in Sephora’s website with so much good reviews so I’m excited to try it soon.

•Pore-Balance Facial Sauna Scrub (28 g)•

The name itself is very exciting and I’ve been developing a love affair with facial scrubs these past few weeks so this is a welcome addition on my collection. It’s available for $34.00 CAD for a 85g tube.

•Force of Nurture Intensive Hand Crème (30 ML)•

I love the packaging of this hand cream, I thought it’s unique and eye catching. I actually tried it and was impressed that it does not feel greasy or oily. The smell is buttery but very subtle which I love. This is sold for $26.00 CAD for a 100 ML tube.

•Counter Balance Oil Control Hydrator (15 ML)•

As the name implies, I thought this would be perfect for Summer since my skin is usually on the drier side during the Winter season. I was immediately impressed on how smart this moisturizer is package since it came with a pump. Priced at $42.00 CAD for 50 ML.

•The Clean Truth Foaming Cleanser (50 ML)•

I’ve been eyeing this cleanser this month because I wanted to use it hand in hand with the Truth Serum so I’m thrilled to get this on this set. It also has really good reviews so I think it’s worth a try. This is available for $12.00 for a 50 ML bottle which is exactly the same size that you get on this set.

•Transforming Walnut Scrub (28 g)•

Walnut scrub, really? I haven’t tried anything like this before so why not! This is available for $34.00 CAD for 85g.

•Uplifting Transformation Eye Gel (7ML)•

Eye gels and creams are pricey in general so it’s always useful to get these products in sets like these to try it out before deciding to buy a regular size. This gel alone is sold for $42.00 CAD for 15 ML!

•Invigorating Night Transformation Gel (7ML)•

Reading the name made me overwhelmed but after doing a bit of reading, this apparently acts like a serum. Like most products on this set, it also has really good reviews! It is sold for $58.00 CAD for a 50 ML bottle which I think ia probably the reason why this came in just a 7ML container. I really hoped they added a bit more though.

•Nurture Me Moisturizing Crème (7ML)•

This moisturizer contains Vitamina C & E which I thought is amazing. Olehenriksen’s products are mostly infused with Vitamin C so I think it’s what’s drawing me to this brand. A 50ML jar of this moisturizer is sold for $50.00 CAD.

•Uplifting Transformation Eye Crème (7ML)•

This is basically just a cream based version of the Uplifting Transformation Eye Gel. It’s sold for $52.00 CAD for a 15 ML jar.

•Pure Truth Youth Activating Oil (7ML)•

This for me is very intriguing and exciting as it contains pure rosehip oil which I’ve been so curious about for a long while now so finally I would be able to try it out with this face brightening oil. It’s however  highly priced for $56.00 CAD for a 30 ML bottle.

Over all, this set is very impressive. The price is very reasonable since you are getting 12 decently sized products which are very usable and essential on everyone’s skincare routine. I just wished there’s more variety but other than that, it’s perfect!

This also the only Skincare Advent Calendar I bought this season and it’s more than enough.

What do you think about this set?

Much love,

    I wanted to get this set but I’m on a no-buy lol. I love everything I’ve tried from Ole Henriksen so it would have been perfect for me. I love the Truth Serum, the rosehip oil and the foaming cleanser!
