OleHenriksen Glow2OH Dark Spot Toner Review
As an avid Sephora window shopper, OleHenriksen is one of the products that I’ve been lusting to try for a long long time. However, in trying out a new brand, there is always reluctance and multitudes of questions that goes along with it. Would it be an ideal product for my skin type? Would I regret buying it if it doesn’t work since it cost me so much?… And the list of questions goes on.
I got a notification from Influenster informing me that I made it to the OleHenriksen campaign and I will be one of the few who will get to try the product before they release it in the market. That notice came 2 weeks before Christmas and the product arrived a week before Christmas. It definitely felt like Christmas came early!
The toner launch date was 12/26/2018 and people went crazy trying to get a hold of it, while I, at home was feeling cozy and enjoying my beauty rest. For the sake of everyone who are still confused what the toner is for, let me tell you that it is one of the beauty products that you shouldn’t miss in your beauty routine. Coming from its word “toner”, it tones the skin. Let’s not forget that prior to applying toner, you first cleansed your face using your favorite facial cleanser. During the cleansing process, your skin lost its natural moisture making it dry and sensitive. Then, toner saves the day by toning your skin to bring back the lost moisture during cleansing process.
It’s been a month since I started using the toner, an ideal time to see and prove results. So today, I will be giving my honest review of what I think about the OleHenriksen Glow2OH Dark Spot Toner.
Description: This potent toner, supercharged with a high concentration of AHAs (glycolic and lactic acids) and witch hazel water, reduces the look of dark spots in as little as 7 days. It also targets fine lines and wrinkles, and smoothes texture. But this powerhouse has a soft side, too. Infused with sandalwood, chamomile and licorice extracts, it’s gentle enough for daily use. Tone post-cleansing for a skin-smoothing boost, and you’ll be perfectly prepped for serum and moisturizer. Plus, with its addictive lemon sugar scent and “it’s working!” tingle, you’ll be hooked from the very first swipe. Reveal a transformed, refined and youthful-looking Ole Glow®!.
Verdict: I love the packaging, it is stored in a royal blue container that looks regal in its minimalist design. The product stings a bit during application, which for me is how I measure efficacy since my skin reacts on it. I can feel that it did a great job in removing the dirt while keeping my face moisturized. It definitely gave me that squeky clean face feel.
The following day, I woke up glowing! Did my morning beauty routine (I used the toner again, since it is day and night use), applied my make up and to my surprise, my make up application went smoothly. Did you ever notice that when you do your makeup, everything just look piled up? But when I used the toner, it evens out the imperfection. I was truly amazed!
Now, let’s talk about the promise of reducing dark spots in 7 days. Bold for them to say, but as a person who has been using this product for 1 month, I would say it is not 7 days for me but 15 days. Yes, I was counting. I have dark sports due to my acne scars, blackheads and some sun spots and that was what I focused on when using this product.
Overall, I am still please and satisfied with the product. It exceeded my expectation and I would say OleHenriksen would really give you the run for your money.
