Product Rave: Ole Henriksen African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser


I bought this in Sephora during my recent New York trip and began using it that very night. 

From the site: "Details - Named the best natural cleanser at the Natural Health Beauty Awards, this luxurious foaming cleanser is enriched with anti-aging botanical extracts like naturally antioxidant-rich african red tea and Vitamin C. Its soothing, non-drying formula is strong enough to remove makeup, but gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin. Regular use will elevate your skin to new levels of clarity and luminosity.

Benefits - African red tea Strengthens the skin’s outer layer, slows the aging process, calms and soothes the skin
Borage seed oil Moisturizes with gamma linolenic acid, an essential fatty acid, and acts as an astringent and anti-inflammatory
Vitamin C Stimulates collagen synthesis and fights environmental damage
Grapefruit, orange and tangerine extracts Purifies and brightens with astringent, antiseptic and aromatic qualities.

Formulated Without -
Parabens
Sulfates
Phthalates

How To Use - Massage one or two pumps of cleansing foam onto damp face, then rinse thoroughly. Follow with your preferred tonic, serum and moisturizer. Use morning and night.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Sodium Methvl Cocovl Taurate, Cocamidopropvl Betaine, PPG-5-Ceteth-20, Cocamidopropvl PG-Dimonium Chloride Phosphate, PEG-8 Dimethicone (and) PEG-B Ricinoleate, Limonene, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Extract (and) Citrus Aurantium Dulcie (Orange) Peel Extract (and) Citrus Tangerina (Tangerine) Extract (and) Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Ascorbic Acid, Citric Acid, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Glycerin (and) Water (and) Larrea Divaricata Extract, Glycerin (and) Water (and) Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Glycerin (and) Water (and) Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Seed Extract, Calcium Ascorbate, Aspathalus Linearis Leaf Extract, Butvrosoermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Ribes Nigrium Seed Oil (Black Current Seed Oil), Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Seed Oil, Boraoo Officinalis Seed Oil, Linum Usitatissimum (Linseed) Seed Oil".

This products in either the 1.5 fl. oz. size for $9USD* or the 7 fl. oz size for $30USD*. 
* Price before tax.


The orange solution easily forms a white foam when dispersed. The pump functions well; two pumps sufficiently cleansed my face.


Where most foaming cleansers are crucified for stripping the skin this formula does not. I think testing it in the cold "Spring" weather in New York gave me a great appreciation for this product. After a day out with that biting wind being all manner of disrespectful to my skin it was a pleasure to wash my face with this. It adequately removed all traces of my sunscreen - when I wear makeup I always use a makeup remover wipe/oil before going in with a cleanser - without leaving my skin feeling dry or tight.

If you check the reviews on Sephora.com for this product you'll see one fact mentioned repeadly: it smells AMAZING. I don't know if it's due to blend of fruit seed and peel oils - Black Currant, Grapefruit, Orange, Tangerine and Sweet Almond - or if that's how the Red Tea leaf extract smells but lemmetellyuh it is delightful.  
I am very sorry to be at the end of this mini size. Who's headed to Sephora soon?

Dear Shane Dawson, SYM!

...wid a straw.
Imagine: pretending to care about a community, claiming to share similar interest, designing a cash grab to fleece said community, make millions off products and merchandise (did I mention that this charlatan never even posted one single video using his palette?)...then turning around and blasting the same community for loving negativity and drama. After using drama to create hype for his mediocre "docu-series" and gaudy products. Boy go and drink bleach yuh *redacted* parasite. The same energy you have for lambasting an entire sub-set of YouTube - that made you richer - keep fuh nasty minded, gutter snipe friends. I hope you truly are "done with the drama and tea". You should be done with YouTube period! Yuh *redacted* fraud! I particularly hope that everyone can now see through your "I'm so sensitive" charade and never put another cent of their hard earned money in your condescending, manipulative pockets. You are a disgrace.  
And jus…
