Ole Henriksen Blue/Blackberry Enzyme Mask | Review

Hi Lovelies 
Face masks are defiantly a THING right now, I have never seen so many different brands and types of face masks in my life but 2017 seems to be a year of choice and variety when it comes to what face masks they are available. This year so far I have tried at least 5 different types of face masks and each one of them have been great, I can honestly see why they are such a popular thing. 

Ole Henriksen is a very new brand to me but it has grown in popularity since it started out in the 70s. It was founded by Scandinavian skincare expert Ole Henriksen and the skincare products are made out of natural botanicals, powerful actives and essential fatty acids. The products are also cruelty free

The packaging is a very nice royal blue shade and the box is quite sturdy with clear information written on the box too. The container which holds the product is something I am not sure about because its made out of plastic and reminds me a lot of my grandads hair wax container. The masque itself is like a gel and is completely clear and has a very aromatic strong scent and I am unsure if I actually like the smell or not.

This mask contains a blend of blue/blackberry extract as they are very good at helping to help at cell renewal properties which helps the skins texture and it also has lavender which helps hydrate and nourish skin and as well as those amazing ingredients it also has vitamin b5 papaya enzyme which helps renew skin which makes this a perfect mask to hydrate and moisturise your face.

I have tried this mask a few times now and so has my partner and his brother so I have a good idea of what we all think of this product so lets see how it went shall we?

We all put a thick layer of the gel onto our faces after cleansing our faces beforehand and we all agree the smell is quite strong but something we all got used too after a few minutes. To get a thick layer on our faces didn't take too long and even after it has been used by us all and also by me a few extra times they is still loads left in the container which for me helps it become more better value since it is an eye watering £36 for 100 ml of product.

Its recommend to leave it on for 20 minutes so we left it on for the stated time and once it came to the time to wash it off the texture of it was kinda like jelly that it almost set if you know what I mean. I washed my face in warm water and it didn't take too long for it to completely wash off my face which is obviously a good thing because sometimes some face masks can be an absolute pain to get off even with warm water and a towel.

My face defiantly felt more hydrated after using this mask and it felt very smooth too and it felt softer for the next 48 hours which is pretty impressive.

My Thoughts
As much as I want to love this product I can't say I do unfortunately, it has so many factors on why I won't be repurchasing this. First up I think the packaging isn't up to standards for a product that is so expensive and secondly I personally don't like the smell at all it is a little bit too strong in my opinion and the texture isn't my cup of tea either. It did leave my skin feeling nice and soft after I washed it off they is no denying that but for me the price is a little much and I think the body shop expert face masks are better and they are £16 for the same amount of product, you can see my full review on the body shops Himalayan charcoal purifying mask here.

I would defiantly try other products from the range though because another product might work wonders for me and you know something everyone? You may love this face mask! This is only one persons opinion out of so many.

Ole Henriksen is available in Debenhams online and in-store
