Ole Henriksen Review

Updated On:


Ole Henriksen is a cosmetic line, founded by one Danish born Ole Henriksen over 30 years ago. Henriksen made the decision to create a skin care line of his own after being afflicted with cystic acne. He proceeded to attend schools in London in order to achieve degrees in cosmetic chemistry and skin care. Afterwards Ole Henriksen opened a spa business in Los Angeles, California. Some of his past clients have been celebrities like Renee Zellweger, Charlize Theron, Mark Wahlberg, Julia Stiles, Kylie Minogue, Mathew McConaughey, Linda Evangelista and Brendan Fraser.

The Ole Henriksen skin care line claims to make “spa quality” treatments available to a retail market so that users can maintain a home regimen. They are now sold in a variety of high-end department stores and cosmetic boutiques. Ole Henriksen products are geared toward all skin types and both genders. Six principles are involved in the Ole Henriksen skin care system. These are known as simplicity (less is more), renewal (use of alpha hydroxy acids and anti-oxidants), stimulation (cleansing, toning and scrubbing the skin), hydration (usage of moisturizers), pampering (pleasant product aromas) and cruelty-free (no animal testing). The Ole Henriksen product line consists of facial cleansers, tonics, moisturizers, eye care, blemish care, nail care, hair care, sun care, body care and other specialty treatments to address specific skin issues/concerns. These products incorporate a variety of plant extracts and natural botanicals aimed to improve skin and hair.

Product Details

Ole Henriksen is a skin, hair and body treatment line that develops products for all skin types (male and female). These products claim to aid individuals with common skin dilemmas such as fine lines, acne blemishes, redness, wrinkles, irritation and dryness. Ole Henriksen products contain key components like all-natural botanicals and plant extracts to potentially improve the user’s overall appearance (skin and hair).

The Good

  • All Ole Henriksen products are available for purchase via the official website.
  • Ole Henriksen treatments have been featured in many magazines, which can be seen on the website.
  • A deluxe sampler kit is available with a purchase on the official website.

The Bad

  • The official Ole Henriksen website fails to offer a 100% money-back guarantee.
  • There are no product development trials or other scientific info offered that shows how Ole Henriksen will benefit your skin/hair.
  • Free product samples are not available on the website.
  • Some ingredients found in Ole Henriksen treatments may irritate some users.
  • Customer testimonials are absent from the official website.

The Bottom Line

When it comes to “spa-grade” skin care lines, it’s often difficult to see/understand what truly separates (makes them superior) them from other cosmetic brands. While Ole Henriksen is regarded as a spa-quality line of treatments, it may simply be due to the fact that Henriksen himself began with an L.A. spa and then proceeded to branch out to the masses. Regardless of whether or not the Ole Henriksen products are “spa-grade,” a few samples provided through the official website would likely better encourage some potential customers to give them a shot. Furthermore, since so many similar sounding skin treatment lines are also available, some consumers may choose one that offers a money-back guarantee. At least this way consumers can achieve some peace of mind, regardless of whether the products end up working or not.
