Hey guys, happy Tuesday! For those of you that prefer skin care sets over makeup palettes for the holidays, Sephora has got you covered with their huge selection of skin care value sets. Today I want to review for you the Ole Henriksen Unwrap Your Radiance Collection ($60 CAD). Filled with $135 CAD worth of trial-sized goodies from the brand, it has everything you'll need to reveal healthy and radiant skin. To read a bit about each product and what I thought, click......

Unwrap Your Radiance Gift Set
Packaging:
The six products come in a gift-wrap ready box. All the products except for the face wipe are deluxe sample sized. All the items are nicely packaged so even though they are minis, they feel very much like the full-sized products.

African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser (104ml, $38 for 208ml full sized product):
This is a energizing foaming cleanser that promises to remove dirt, oil, and makeup. Infused with vitamin C, african red tea, borage seed oil, and citrus extract, the cleanser has a liquid formulation but dispenses in a white foam. It cleanses nicely but it's not as great at removing waterproof eye makeup. Overall though, I think it makes a great everyday cleanser and it has a subtle herbal scent.

Truth Serum Collagen Booster (15ml, $60 for 30ml full sized product):
A daytime anti-aging serum, the Truth Serum Collagen Booster brightens, soothes, and repairs the skin. Formulated with orange, grapefruit, rose hips seed extracts, the serum can be used after your daily toner in the morning. The product has a lovely citrus scent and absorbs nicely into the skin.
The serum can be followed with the Sheer Transformation moisturizer (see below) or the Pure Truth Youth Activating Oil (see below).

Pure Truth Youth Activating Oil 15ml, $56 for 30ml full sized product):
This 100% pure rose hips face oil is rich in vitamin A, C, and fatty acids. I think this is definitely my favorite product from the set because I love how rich and nourishing it feels on the skin. This product can be used either in the morning or night but because I have fairly oily skin, I only use this at night time, following the Invigorating Night Treatment (see below). The combination makes my skin very soft and radiant in the morning.
The oil has a very interesting (and quite potent) earthy scent.

Invigorating Night Treatment (15ml, $56 for 50ml full sized product):
This overnight resurface is formulated with AHA (alpha hydroxy acid), a compound that helps smooth out fine lines and even out skin tone. The product has a super lightweight gel formulation. When I apply it on the skin I feel a mild tingling sensation. I've been pairing this with the Pure Truth Youth Activating Oil and have actually been seeing some great results with my skin.

Sheer Transformation (15ml, $48 for 50ml full sized product):
A day and night moisturizer, Sheer Transformation is oil-free and loaded with licorice, vitamin C, sandalwood, geranium, chamomile, and AHA. The moisturizer feels nice and light, but I find that when paired with the Truth Serum Collagen Booster, the two sort of clumps and flakes off on the skin. But on their own both products work fine.

The Clean Truth Cleansing Cloth (10 pack, $10):
These cleansing cloths have a nice thick texture and a lovely citrus scent. I like that they have just the right amount of moisture; they are good at picking up dirt, oil, eyeshadow, and other face makeup but didn't do so great on eyeliner and mascara. Overall though, these are great face wipes that I would repurchase if the price wasn't so high.

Overall:
I think this is a lovely set if you want to try out a wide range of Ole Henriksen products and the value is pretty incredible ($60 for $135 worth of product). My favorite out of the six are the Invigorating Night Treatment and the Pure Truth Youth Activating Oil.

Availability:
Ole Henriksen is available in stores and online at Sephora.
