Perfect Skin? Ole!!

Ole Henriksen


Boy I thought I was born lucky! I had skin that no matter what, never broke out–well until I hit my late-teens, early-twenties. Who wants to have acne when everyone else is getting over it? I ended up with craters all over my face at the worst of moments, right before my beau would come into town, the day before a photo shoot, the night before my best friend who I hadn’t seen in a year would visit! Yes, I know, acne is evil! After trying every beauty product in Sephora, Aveda, Lush and the like, I thought my only option would be something severe like Acutane. Enter Ole Henriksen.

As a young boy Henrikson studied natural remedies in countries from Indonesia to London to understand their reaction with skin. Some odd years later and he is now the preferred brand of A-listers including Naomi Campbell, Charlize Theron, and Linda Evangelista.

What it did for me, made my skin more even toned, tighter, and brighter. Ever since using this product, I am constantly asked what is my secret to beautiful skin. My secret? Good product! Looks like I may be lucky after all!
