Hello all! This is my first ever product view I’ve done. And it is the Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation Moisturizer. I will discuss with you about the product details, pros/cons, and overall thoughts of the product.
*DISCLOSURE: This is an honest review I am giving about this product. I purchased this with my own money. This is NOT a paid or sponsored review.*
Price (varies by size): $22 (0.5 oz) ; $40 (1.7 oz); $65 (3 oz)
Key Ingredients: actiwhite™, licorice, and vitamins C & E, sandalwood, geranium, chamomile, sugar cane and multifruit AHAs.
I’ve purchased the 1 oz jar from Amazon for $27 and change plus shipping and handling (check out the Amazon below; you may also find it cheaper from another seller). I was hoping this moisturizer will do the following:
- Fade dark spots
- Won’t make my skin too oily
- Smooth out my skin’s texture and overall appearance
- Moisturize my skin
Usage: I apply this moisturizer on my face and chest twice daily. In the morning with sunscreen and at night after washing my face.
- Fast absorbing
- Instant luminous skin
- Softer skin instantly & after continuous usage
- Fades dark spots / discoloration / hyper-pigmentation
- Noticeable improvement in skin texture
- Use of natural ingredients
- Slightly pricey (depending on your budget)
- Skin can become oily after several hours (if you don’t use a mattifying product)
- Does not help minimize pores
- No SPF
- Licorice scent is a bit unpleasant, but not overpowering and wears off quickly
The Sheer Transformation moisturizer is a miracle worker in fading dark spots and moisturizing your skin. I’ve noticed an improvement in my discolorations on my face and chest within the first two weeks of use. I still have dark spots, but expect the darker spots to take longer to fade. My skin felt instantly smooth, soft, and moisturized for several hours. You have to use sunscreen in conjunction with this moisturizer in the A.M. because it has no SPF. Because I have oily/combination skin, my face did get oily throughout the day, if I didn’t use an oil-controlling product. After a month’s use, I’ve noticed a significant improvement in my skin’s overall appearance and texture. However, I did not see an improvement in my large pores, and I don’t know if the product helps with fine lines and wrinkles because it wasn’t my biggest concern.
I do recommend this moisturizer to anyone who’s looking for a lightweight moisturizer, fade any discolorations and improve skin’s overall appearance. If you have oily or combination skin, you should use something to control oil production (primer, setting powder, blotting paper, etc).
