Ole Henriksen is coming to Boots - here are the hero products you need to pick up

It’s time to treat yourself (and your skin.)

AS THE POPULATION of Ireland collectively rejoices over payday and January coming to an end, there’s plenty to look forward to in the world of cosmetics and skincare.

Yep, brands are firing on all cylinders with their new products as part of their spring launches. One brand that’s got people particularly excited though is cult skincare brand Ole Henriksen.

Founded by the skin cosmetician of the same name, the award-winning skincare range will be available in Boots from tomorrow. Exciting!

But what should you be spending your hard earned cash on?

Ole Henriksen Pore-Balance™ Facial Sauna Scrub


Teen Vogue hails this as a skin saviour for those who has acne. It’s also gotten an average score of 4.6 out of 499 reviews on Sephora. This claims to “control oil, exfoliate and deeply purify and reduce the look of pores”.

It works by using a blend of alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) to lift and loosen dead skin cells, as well as Icelandic volcanic sand and neem seed oil. Fancy!

Ole Henriksen Banana Bright Eye Crème


That’s ‘crème’ as in ‘phlegm’, not ‘dream’. Supposedly, this brightens and instantly targets fine lines and wrinkles, delivering age-defying results.

It uses banana powder – something you might associate more commonly with baking – to brighten up the under eye area.

Ole Henriksen Cold Plunge™ Pore Mask

This is probably the line’s most famous products, and for good reasons, given the claims it makes.

Inspired by the “cold plunge” part of a Scandinavian sauna cycle, this chilly clay mask detoxifies, controls oil and reduces the look of pores.

If pores are your problem, this needs to go in your basket.

Ole Henriksen Balancing Force™ Oil Control Toner


Henriksen was actually prompted to kick off his career as a cosmetician following a bout of cystic acne he got while travelling. So, it’s no wonder that he wanted to develop products that helped others deal with it too.

This concentrated pore minimizing toner – another winner at Teen Vogue’s Acne Awards last year – effectively removes excess oil and refines pores, without stripping the skin.

If you’re a skincare fiend, you’ll be familar with the hoopla surrounding vitamin C. It reduces skin inflammation and irregular pigmentation while promoting healthy collagen production.

Henriksen was an early advocate of vitamin C in skincare, which is where this little guy comes in. Truth Serum claims to brightens, firm, fight visible signs of aging and deliver all-day hydration.

Ole Henriksen launches in Boots and on boots.ie on 1 Feb.
