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. read more
