Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation

I honestly believe that all of my shopping trips to Sephora are derailed merely by putting a heavenly scent in front of me.  It doesn’t take much more than that. Everything that this brand makes smells insanely good and works wonders.

This little beauty retails at Sephora for $48.  That will land you a cute 1.7oz/50ml jar of product that works well.  I am not a fan of jars.  I really wish that this cream was available in a pump bottle or a squeeze tube.  I personally don’t like the bacteria transfer that occurs from constantly digging into a jar.

The cream itself is light yet, rich.  It soaks in quickly and doesn’t leave the skin tacky.  This did actually help with my dark spots.  It did improve my texture issues and my complexion mellowed out.  My redness issues disappeared.  This product was a home run right out of the jar.

About 3 weeks into using this product I noticed that my skin was getting really sensitive to the sun, and sore to the touch.  I had to cut back to using the cream about twice a week.  This reduction in use really reduced the noticeable effects of the cream.  I would still recommend it to anyone that has problems with spots or texture.

As described on the Sephora website:
