pore minimizing

pore minimizing

i love that it deeply cleans my pores without stripping my skin

- Sephora User

with the use my acne is disminished, my pores are smaller and my face really glow, like all the ole products ❤️

- Sephora User



this makes my skin feel so nice and clean without stripping it of its natural oils and giving me any tight dry feeling, i also love the smell and the fact that it has aha's to exfoliate while i cleanse

- Sephora User

this product saved my skin alongside the hydrator moisturizer, my acne scars are fading and my breakouts are nearly gone, and the best part is that it doesn't dry out my skin

- Sephora User


redness relief

after only 1 use this product did an amazing job at reducing texture on my face and felt like it removed dead skin too but what i really like also is that it's not creamy and washes away really easily, and it doesn't leave my skin dry

- Sephora User

the redness has faded and my face is no longer oily all day night, with or without makeup on

- Sephora User



its light and fresh texture leaves the face very clean of impurities, a silky texture on the skin, very soft, feel very clean, smells very rich, and the amount of product it contains is very good

- Sephora User

i like the creamy texture and it really does a great job of cleansing my skin

- Sephora User



smells great and gentle enough to use every day

- Olehenriksen User

it doesn't irritate my skin at all (maybe even a little soothing) and the scent is very energizing, so it's a very nice pick-me-up in my morning routine

- Sephora User



it is a light whitish gel with a scent marked with herbs, it can be a little strong, but it does moderate foam and does not need much quantity, polishes the skin that gives taste removes the dirt very well, leaves the face squeaky, illuminated but not tight i love using it with a cellulose sponge to perform a light physical exfoliation

- Sephora User

i definitely feel that my skin is more balanced and bright when using this cleanser

- Sephora User


good quality

a good quality cleanser, recommend

- Sephora User

the scent smells really good and the cleanser is super high quality

- Mira User

uneven skintone

evens out skin

the acids have really helped to soften my skin and even my skin tone

- Sephora User

but when i received this cleanser as a complementary product, and used it day and night i saw a lovely tone to my skin

- Sephora User



this cleanser is great for my aging, combination skin

- Sephora User

this is especially good for aging skin what is still not exactly normal but more combination

Life Saving

I experienced an allergic reaction from a different product that caused me to breakout all over with whiteheads and made my skin extremely. After I visited my doctor and started a prescription regimen (which I 10/10 recommend you do if you develop a severe skin allergy), I started to use this cleanser to help exfoliate my dry skin, improve my skin turnover rate, and reduce the overall amount of oil on my face due to the reaction. It's super smoothing, gentle, and honestly smells like a 5-star spa. It smells minty and like green tea, but it has zero stinging or tingling that you would expect. The lactic acid and glycolic acid (the AHAs) content is high enough to remove and life dead, dry skin, and is low enough to not cause any additional redness or inflammation. The overall effect creates soothed, smoothed, and fresh feeling skin. There is no tightening that you would experience from a BHA cleanser. I received this as a deluxe sample, but I will continue to use this and incorporate into my nighttime skincare regimen once my skin is fully healed and back to normal. If you're suffering from a skin reaction, I 10/10 recommend this cleanser for you. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

Amazing facial cleanser!!

I started my new career as a teacher this past fall, and ever since then - I’ve become an owner of oily skin! My whole life I have dealt with dry skin, redness, and sensitivity. Suddenly, with a new career, stress, and other things in my life changing - so did my skin. Because of this, I had to look for skincare products OPPOSITE of what I’ve been using my whole life! Talk about confusing. And with my sensitivity, and still-existing dry patches, I had no idea where to start. I got incredibly lucky when I was browsing through Sephora.com and found this bad boy. Something about it stood out and I knew I needed to try it. I’m so glad I did!! It’s so calming and soothing on my skin, I’ve seen a huge reduction in redness, and best of all—it controlled my oily T-zone. Of course I still struggle from time to time but I’m cautious of trying anything else with how picky my skin is! Plus, based on the weather, my eating habits, and more...my skin is bound to act up at times. What I love even more about this product is that a little goes a LONG way! I’m still on my first bottle! And when I do run out, I’m thankful that this cleanser is very inexpensive! If you have skin like mine, or a situation like mine and you’re not sure what’ll work best for you I’d definitely recommend trying this one out since it’s made with beneficial ingredients, safe for sensitive skin, and a lot more cost effective! « less

Had high hopes

Came across Ole Henriksen products on Instagram as my favorite mua's were using it and after looking at all the great reviews had to try it. I had really high hopes for this product. I used it twice a day for a little over a week and my skin has never looked so bad. I developed very small bumps all along my jawline, acne on my cheeks which I've never had before and all these small pustules started showing up all over my face. Really wanted to love this, but I guess it just doesn't work well with my skin type. Also, was not a big fan of the smell. I do have an oily T-zone, which it did reduce somewhat, but saw no difference in my pores or blackheads. I do love the packaging and a little does go a long way which is good, but sad to say will be returning.

Took me by surprise

I have been using this product for about three or four weeks now, and I seriously don't think I will be switching face washes anytime soon! It has helped my skin look very clear and my face doesn't get as oily throughout the day. I have combination and sensitive skin; my pores produce a lot of oil and I get really deep blackheads, but my skin also dries out so easily and especially in the winter here in Chicago I get dry patches around my mouth and nose. I used to use a "deep pore cleansing" facewash, but switched to the Oil Cleansing Method at the beginning of last winter because my face just got too dry. The Oil Cleansing Method was great because it did not dry out my skin and my face was much less oily throughout the day; HOWEVER, it did not "deeply" clean out my pores/blackheads, so I was searching for something that could do it all. Enter this face wash (used in combination with the Find Your Balance toner and moisturizer). I was skeptical at first because the ingredients did not sound too far off from my old cleanser. But I knew it was different the first time I used it because it makes your face tingle when you use it!! It kind of reminds me of the way that menthol makes your mouth feel, but on your face. I think it's the green tea or tea tree oil or something. Regardless, it is PERFECT to wash your face in the morning because the smell + the tingling really wake you up. After using for a few weeks, I definitely have noticed a difference. My skin (even in February in Chicago) has not been dry, peeling, or flaking. My pores seem cleaner, and my face doesn't get oily or shiny. My face overall seems to have more of a "glow" and appears smoother (kind of like if you used the "smooth skin" feature on the photo editing iphone apps). The texture of the product is nice because just a pea sized amount will lather up nicely, so the bottle should last a long time. And it definitely lathers up, unlike some products that stay thin/watery and don't make you feel as clean. I only used this product once a day (instead of twice) because I have sensitive skin and it is prone to drying out, and I have had really really good results, which honestly surprised me because nothing has ever been able to (1) clean my pores, (2) make my skin less oily throughout the day, and (3) keep my skin from drying out. I am SO happy I received this product complimentary to test. Love it!! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

I have tried so many different cleansers from Sephora geared towards acne prone skin and I was always left disappointed. I have dry, sensitive skin and tiny pores that clog easily (blessing and a curse), so it's been challenging to find something that keeps my skin clear without drying it out. I was nervous to try this because it seems geared towards oily skin, but I got a 2oz sample with my points so I could try it and I'm so glad I did. Within a month my skin was looking better than it has in a LONG time. No more pesky bumps or blackheads and my skin wasn't irritated or dried out. I also enjoy the scent and how refreshed my face feels after I use it - it has a nice little tingle to it so it feels like it got a good clean. It also lathers up nicely on my foreo. I recommend this to everyone I know that's looking for something to keep skin clear from blemishes. I hope they never stop making it. « less
