Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Gel
Ole Henriksen ‘Ultimate Lift Eye Gel’ is a skin gel that claims to be able to revitalize your skin, reduce puffiness and help the appearance of saggy eyes and age lines. It was designed to be used at night, after cleansing and moisturizing has taken place.
This product is sold at most major department stores for $38 per fluid ounce, making this a rather expensive investment. Before we can recommend it, we need to take a closer look at Ole Henriksen ‘Ultimate Lift Eye Gel’ to see if it is worth your time and money.
A skin cream (or in this case, a skin gel) is only as good as its main ingredients. Ole Henriksen ‘Ultimate Lift Eye Gel’ main ingredient is advertized as cucumber extract and calendula, which is unfortunate because neither of these ingredients have the capability to penetrate the outer layer of skin.
This product also contains several peptide complexes, which is a good thing. Peptides (especially when used in groups) help stimulate collagen production, which means your skin will feel thicker. This makes your age lines and wrinkles less visible. The only bad thing is that Ole Henriksen ‘Ultimate Lift Eye Gel’ listed these peptides as the last ingredient, meaning it is unlikely they are in high enough doses to make a difference.
Possible Side Effects for
Many consumers reported that the product was too sticky, making it uncomfortable to wear at night. This stickiness most likely is a side effect of the aloe extract, which was meant to soothe and moisturize the skin during sleep.
Other than that unfortunate side effect, Ole Henriksen ‘Ultimate Lift Eye Gel’ does not contain any harmful ingredients (like parabens), so you are unlikely to experience any negative health problems when using this product.
In short, Ole Henriksen ‘Ultimate Lift Eye Gel’ does not contain the right ingredients in the right doses to be effective as an eye product. It has been reportedly uncomfortable to use, and it is fairly expensive at $38 per ounce. Why use a product that is both expensive and ineffective? For your money, we recommend finding an eye cream that contains a high concentration of peptides.
