Ole Henriksen POWER Bright 3-Step Professional Brightening System

While most skincare systems are specific to skin types or skin issues like acne, dryness, wrinkles, oiliness, etc., everyone could use a little skin brightening in their lives. The Ole Henriksen POWER Bright 3-Step Professional Brightening System ($66 CAD) promises just that. It claims to be a solution for dullness, uneven skintone, fine lines and wrinkles. 


The Ole Henriksen POWER Bright 3-Step Professional Brightening System contains 2 sponges plus 6 sets of three one-time use products - the Ole Henriksen Truth Sugar Glow Polishing Mask, the Ole Henriksen Truth 25% Vitamin C Concentrate, and the Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Melting Cleanser. The Sugar Glow Polishing Mask and Pure Truth Melting Cleanser are also sold separately.



The Ole Henriksen POWER Bright is not recommended for those with sensitive skin, though Sephora says that it's good for normal, oily, combo and dry skin. 


Step 1: the Ole Henriksen Truth Sugar Glow Polishing Mask. Apply to clean, damp skin and leave on for 5 to 10 minutes. Apply warm water and massage the product in a circular motion, then rinse clean.

This sugar scrub contains honey, sugar and pomegranate seed powder. It's fairly abrasive (but doesn't hurt!) and leaves the skin feeling thoroughly exfoliated. Describing the mask as "polishing" is particularly apt, given that just after washing Step 1 off, the skin feels smooth and radiant. 

Step 2: the Ole Henriksen Truth 25% Vitamin C Concentrate. Apply to dry skin and leave on for 2 to 3 minutes. Do not rinse. 

Next up is the Vitamin C Concentrate. It contains 25% stable ascorbic acid, which is a pure form of Vitamin C that is known to provide immediate brightness to the skin. It's a thick, creamy consistency but doesn't feel like a moisturizer, rather it sits atop the skin and dries down slightly similar to a clay mask.

Step 3: the Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Melting Cleanser. Apply over top of the Truth 25% Vitamin C Concentrate and smooth evenly over the face. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes then remove with a damp complexion sponge (included) or face cloth. 

The last step is the Pure Truth Melting Cleanser, which is a citrus-fragranced gel cleanser that contains rose hip seed oil, vitamin C and cherry seed. When applied on top of the Vitamin C Concentrate there's an immediate tingle that is less intense than the feeling of a lip plumper. It's as easy pie to remove with the complexion sponges and some lukewarm water.

I've been using the POWER Bright line once a week for about three weeks. Immediately after every use, I felt like my skin was softer, smoother and more hydrated. I haven't seen any noticeable improvements to my dark spots and hyperpigmentation (yet) but my skin feels amazing every time.

All in all, the Ole Henriksen POWER Bright is a stellar treatment for when my skin's feeling gunky and congested. The price tag of $66 seems way up there but it works out to $11 each for 6 at home facials which is not half bad.
