I don’t know about you but the winter weather has been HARSH on my skin.
My recycling bin was basically a steady supply of moisturizers and lotions I’ve worked through to hydrate my skin from head to toe. For my body I was bouncing between the L’Occitane tub (which is great but pricy for use at a rapid rate) and the Cerave moisturizer — which I LOVE but it’s definitely a bit greasy under makeup in the morning.
So when I saw the Ole Henriksen Peptide Boost Moisturizer spring up in my inbox my interest was immediately peaked. And upon reading its ingredients I was confident it might just be the morning routine savior I’ve been longing.
Ole Henriksen is a brand I’ve relied on for years. He has a fantastic lineup of masks and the Dark Spot Toner especially is a daily must for me. I use that every single night after cleansing my face and it’s one of those products I love so much I also have a backup on hand to ensure I never ran out. That toner single handedly transformed my skin’s texture and there’s just no going without it.
Curious that the “Strength Trainer” Peptide Boost moisturizer could be a new skincare routine must-have I snatched it up immediately and I’m here to offer a full report. Keep reading below for more!
Ole Henriksen Peptide Boost Moisturizer
The Ole Henriksen Peptide Boost Moisturizer really isn’t playing around when it comes to defending the skin.
Its vegan formula includes ingredients that tackle strengthening your skin’s moisture barrier but also work to protect you from major signs of aging.
- 8 PEPTIDES: Amino acids that strengthen and improve skin condition
- 3 CERAMIDES: Lipids that strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier — which is essential year-round but especially in the winter
- HYALURONIC ACID: My number one favorite skincare ingredient for hydrating and protecting moisture levels while plumping the skin
- COLLAGEN: When applied topically, collagen helps boost skin elasticity
- 8 AMINO ACIDS: Protein building blocks that firm and further boost skin elasticity
- VITAMIN B12: Reduces inflammation, redness and dryness
- VITAMIN E: Minimizes the appearance of scars or imperfections, helps prevent skin cancer and treats fine lines and wrinkles
- NIACINAMIDE: Helps skin retain moisture levels, treats hyperpigmentation and smooths texture
PERFECT WINTER MOISTURIZER
When I initially reviewed the Ole Henriksen Peptide Boost Moisturizer ingredient list I suspected it would be a great product for a winter skincare routine and boy was I not wrong! The peptides, ceramides, hyaluronic acid and B12 work beautifully together to significantly boost my skin’s moisture levels.
Taking it all further — the moisturizer lasts! It’s not one that I find myself needing to repeatedly reapply throughout the day. I apply this in the morning after my SPF and can feel it working throughout the entire day until I wash my face at night.
Silky Balm-t0-Gel Texture
The Ole Henriksen Peptide Boost Moisturizer has a rather unique texture that transforms when applied to the skin! The balm smooths into a gel texture that skins quickly into the skin and leaves a nice silky feel behind.
WORKS BEAUTIFULLY BENEATH MAKEUP
Number one concern with any morning routine moisturizer: how greasy is it going to look under my makeup?
Fortunately the Peptide Boost moisturizer’s silkiness creates smooth surface for your foundation and concealer. I apply this after my SPF and give it a minute or two to set. Then I apply my foundation like normal and wow! I’m very impressed by how non-greasy it sits on the skin. It’s a relief to see the moisturizer help my skin throughout the day while also doubling as an excellent primer before makeup!
Gentle for All Skin Types
The gel-like and fast-absorbing texture will work well for those with oily skin. The lack of fragrance and focus on hydration will also work well for those with sensitive or dry skin.
WHERE TO SHOP
It’s possible other retails with start stocking the product (especially with all the rave reviews its receiving), but currently the Peptide Boost moisturizer is available from:
OVERALL GRADE? A+
It’s a very rare thing when I give such stamp of approval for a product but the Ole Henriksen Peptide Boost moisturizer really is worth it!
I fell immediately in love with after just one just one use but after several more — determined it’s 100% a new must-have in my skincare routine and one I’ll be repurchasing again and again. The moisturizer manages to tackle every single skincare concern that I have and, while I think it’s a terrific option for the winter months, agree that the silky texture will also work well throughout the entire year. Highly, highly recommend!
