Wash your day away | Ole Henricksen Foaming Cleanser


I’ve been looking for a good makeup cleanser for awhile. Something that would save me time washing off the makeup and something that would do a better job. With all the choices on the market it gets really hard to choose the one but in the end I’m glad to say that I found exactly what I was looking for and very happy with the results.


The brand was founded by Ole Henricksen, Danish skin cosmetician who lives in the United States and who became interested in skin care after his own skin got inflamed with cystic acne during his trip to Indonesia. He studied skin care and cosmetic chemistry in London before moving to US to open his first spa in Los Angeles which became very popular among celebrities after Vogue Magazine wrote a short story about him. Mr. Henricksen has over 40 years of experience as a cosmetic chemist and skin care expert. His products won several awards and are available in 12 countries.

The Ole Henricksen product range is design to be simple yet effective and safe for skin and is “inspired by beauty benefits of Scandinavian healthy lifestyle”.  The range of products includes anti-aging products, products for dry skin, sensitive skin and oil/blemish prone skin.


I haven’t tried anything from this brand before until this cleanser. When I ran out of my last cleanser and time came to find a new one I had few “candidates” in mind. Sometimes it’s so hard too choose when you have so many options! Especially with skin care. Clothes are easy but with skin care when you have few great brands with good reviews promising the same results it’s hard to choose. I narrowed my search to two cleansers – Boscia’s Makeup-Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil and Ole Henricksen’s African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser. What won me in the end was the amount of product you pay for the same amount of money (both cleansers are $30 each) and the fact that Henricksen Cleanser is also age-defense cleanser.

You only need the smallest amount of product to get rid of even the stubbornest makeup. It literally melts it off your face. The formula is very rich and creamy and it smells AMAZING – something citrusy that puts you in a good mood right away. It is rich in anti-oxidants (from African Red tea) that nourish, hydrate and strengthen your skin, borage seed oil which contains anti-inflammatory properties and Grapefruit, Orange, and Tangerine Extracts that purify, exfoliate, and brighten.

Also this cleanser was named the best natural cleanser at the Natural Health Beauty Awards and is vegan and doesn’t contain soap or fragrances. I absolutely LOVE it!
