GETTING TO KNOW OLE HENRIKSEN!!!


Ole Henriksen personally emailed me! Me! The man who receives fan mail from around the world! He works with celebrities like Charlize Theron, Renee Zellweger, Halle Berry and Carmen Electra, just to name a few! This just proves what I’ve been saying all along, Yes, I AM A CELEBRITY!!!

The gorgeous Libby, who is lucky enough to work with the master has been sending Meg’s Makeup product to review from the very beginning. Every product from the Truth Serum to the Pick Me Up Mist has been a crowd pleaser.

Let’s see what the man that I now call a dear friend, the fabulous Ole Henriksen has to say!

My name and hometown:

My name is Ole Henriksen, and I am the owner and creator of the OleHenriksen Skin Care Brand sold globally in department stores, specialty stores, perfumeries and spa’s. My exciting adventure into the world of beauty, began with the opening of the Ole Henriksen Face/Body Spa in1975, located in Beverly Hills. The award winning spa, now located on Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood, remains the creative cornerstone for myinternational business. My residence is a skip and a jump from this location, allowing me the great luxury of never having to fight LA traffic when I go to the spa.

My start in life was to do this, but the path I took towards cosmetics was driven by this…

I began my adult life as a show dancer, touring various countries in Asia. It was during this period that i developed cystic acne, while residing for a longer period in Jakarta, Indonesia. A talented esthetician, named Lagita, took me under her “magic spell”, treating my erupted skin with herbal formulations native to Indonesia. The results were impressive, and hence my interest in skin care was born. And how long can you go on in life, kicking your legs high? A career in skin care seemed like the next logical step for me, and I quickly returned back to my European roots to seek out the best training facility for my newfound passion. The Christine Shaw Beauty College in London was rated as “the beauty temple” for anyone that wanted the best education in cosmetic chemistry, make-up, electrolysis, manicure/pedicures, and of course face and body treatments, utilizing state of the art equipment.
Before I could blink an eye I was a London resident and a proud student at the Christine Shaw College.

I want all women to know this about themselves…

I want all women to know that happiness transcends beauty in its purest form. So celebrate life and yourself, and live in the moment.

My goal is to bring each user of my products this…

It is my sincere goal to bring each user of my products a feeling of luxury and pampering when they use my beautifully textured formulations at home, while simultaneously infusing their complexion with natures most potent reparative, soothing, hydrating and anti-aging extracts.

I believe in all of my products but if I could urge each women to try this one (pick your favorite) I would…

Needless to say I am a fan of all the products I have formulated over the years, but the one product that I urge all women and men to try, is my Truth Serum Collagen Booster, based on Rose Hips Extract, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Ester C, Green Tea and Eyebright Extract. This transformational serum is addicting, and has helped to enhance the complexions of Hollywood Royalty like Cher, Hugh Jackman, Charlize Theron, Mark Wahlberg, Halle Berry, Kiefer Sutherland, Renee Zellweger, David Bowie, Carmen Electra and Prince.

Style influences vary, I would say my style is most like this…

Style influences vary, but my personal style in all aspects of my life, from the interior of my home and spa, to the way I dress, to the packaging design of my products, is about function and elegance and beautiful colours.

I started my line because I couldn’t find this…but I deliver this with each product:

Creating products from scratch has always been a hobby of mine, since I first studied cosmetic chemistry in London. So from the get go, when I opened my first spa in 1975, I would create formulations in my kitchen and bring fresh batches of mask’s and scrubs on my bicycle (didn’t own a car in those days) to the spa every morning. Celebrity clients like Barbra Streisand, Sylvester Stallone and Christy Brinkley would rave about the benefits of my formulations. My first best selling book featured these recipies, and after an appearance on The Oprah Show, fans around The United States urged me to create my own Ole Henriksen brand. As the die hard skin care expert that I am, I care about one thing only when I create a new product, and that is its ability to deliver results, in essence elevate skin to the best it can be.

When I see a women make this mistake I cringe…

When I see women that have mummified their faces with to much botox, and had their lips inflated with fillers to the point where they look like flying sauers, I cringe. It destroys the youthful appearance of a face and makes it “dead” looking, which in reality is the opposite of what is trying to be achieved.

My products care about the way you look like no one else’s because of this…

My products care about the way you look like noone else’s because they truly deliver results, are easy and enjoyable to use, and sensible priced. Many international product awards have been bestowed on my brand over the last 4 years, including Best New Product Award, Luxury Brand in Great Britain year 2006.

Lastly, if I were at a bar I’d order this…

I would order Kettel One Vodka on the rocks, with a lemon wedge. A clean and elegant drink, that never ever gives me a hang-over.

True or False, I’m going to tell you when there’s spinach between your teeth…

Of course I would tell even my worst enemy, if they had spinache between their teeth, because teeth are so important as a part of the all overappearance of a face.
