The ‘I was in bed before 10pm’ illusion
When I say this is a must, it’s a must! You can fool everyone into believing you’ve been studying all night (rather than partying, ahem) with the Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Gel. This overnight miracle that works like a delicate smoke-screen, eradicating those under-eye bags quicker than that dreaded dissertation deadline will creep around! Soothing cucumber de-duff your peepers, whist biopeptides hydrate and firm your eye area, brightening your complexion while you sleep. That’s right – you shall be bright eyed and bushy tailed!
Top Tip – Keep in the fridge to calm and refresh
Kiss me quick
Indulge in cracking in open the finest champagne to celebrate the end of term – not the displeasure of dry, cracking lips. You need to be focusing on your lectures and not the uncomfortable sting of a peeling pout. What I love about this beautifying balm is that it contains salicylic acid to dissolve any excess dead skin, whilst replacing any lost moisture with hydrating vitamin E and luxurious cocoa butter. Now you can be completely prepared to pucker up on those spontaneous mid-week nights out!
Top Tip – Camphor and menthol help to prevent your lips from blistering, which is perfect for the colder weather.
When you’ve got your head in your books or your eyes have turned square from staring at the computer screen for too long, you know it’s about time you had a refresh. This uplifting tonic is like breath of fresh air for your skin (boring lecture-proof), re-invigorating your complexion with a stimulating wakeup call. Packed full of kind-to-skin antioxidant protection, this energy-boosting spritz also gives your skin a beautiful glow whilst tightening any large pores – voilà!
We’ve all been there. Removing your makeup after a night on the tiles is probably the last thing you want to think about, but believe me when I say it’s a must – especially when there’s a super quick solution in the form of the Ole Henriksen Grease Relief Cleansing Cloths. These efficient wipes are enriched Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) that deeply cleanse, exfoliate and refine your skin with every use. These super speedy cloths are perfect to remove makeup and refresh your skin (it’s just a shame they don’t wipe away the hangover)!
Top Tip – Put the pack under your pillow if you’re heading on a night out, this will remind you to use them.
Blue/ Black magic
blue / black berry enzyme mask
My favourite pick of the bunch! Burning the candle at both ends takes a massive toll on your skin, not to mention effect that stresses and looming deadlines have on your complexion. Fear not, you can keep breakouts at bay and soothe temperamental issues with the Ole Henriksen Blue/Black Berry Enzyme Mask. This 2-in-1 treatment acts as a mask and exfoliator, call it a weekly pamper for you and your skin – don’t forget you deserve a treat after all that hard work! Sensorial lavender extract calms and renews your complexion, putting your mind at ease, whilst powerful papaya enzyme eats away the dead skin cells, giving you a moment to relax and your skin some time to renew!
