* Prices may differ from that shown
I first discovered Ole Henriksen skin care products a few years ago when we lived in Denmark. Ole Henriksen is Danish, his products are obviously very popular in Denmark, and also in the US. I made my first Ole Henriksen purchase in Denmark, but since then I've tended to buy the products in the US as they're much cheaper over there (isn't everything!), I've also seen Ole Henriksen skin care products on sale in Harvey Nicks.
Ole Henriksen products are not especially cheap, I typically pay around $25 for the body sleek hydrating lotion, which comes in a 355ml bottle. But they are definitely indulgent and luxury products, and they make a lovely luxurious treat for yourself or a gorgeous special gift for someone.
The body sleek hydrating lotion is suitable for all skin types, and it contains; Almond oil which is rich in oxygenating essential fatty acids. Aloe Vera gel which moisturizes, calms and heals. Apricot oil which retexturises the skin. Avocado oil which is a deeply penetrating oil rich in vitamins and nutrients. Sunflower Seed oil which is rich in skin softening nutrients and anti oxidants. And Vitamin D which improves resiliency.
The body lotion is white in colour, and although it's a lotion it's actually quite a thick and substantial lotion. It massages into my skin easily though and it completely disappears and sinks into my skin leaving no greasy residue or stickyness behind at all, it just seems to melt into my skin. This leaves my skin feeling really soft and hydrated, and superbly moisturised. Although it is actually quite a lightweight body lotion it does feel like a very intensely moisturising lotion (if that makes sense!), and my skin feels absolutely superb after using this. My skin looks and feels lovely and soft and smooth, and any dry patches are banished. I use this all over my body, and I don't need to use much of it as a little really does go a long way.
The body lotion has a really fresh and light scent. I'm struggling to describe the fragrance as it doesn't remind me of anything in particular, the best description I can think of is just a very 'clean and fresh' fragrance. The fragrance in this body lotion is really quite subtle and so it doesn't clash with or overpower any other body products that I've used or with my perfume. I find that this is the perfect body lotion to use either day or night, and it works well with any combination of my vast collection of fragranced body products.
Yes this is very expensive, but I'd definitely recommend it. It's a very simple, lightly fragranced body lotion, that goes well with any other fragranced body products, and which works really well at keeping my skin soft, smooth and supple.
