Facial treatment masks allow active ingredients to work on the skin for an extended period of time, usually 10 to 20 minutes, before being washed off. They are not “stay-on” products, like creams or lotions, but they provide an intense, effective treatment. The suite of Ole Henriksen Masks Products offers a wide selection of facial masks to address a variety of skin concerns, including exfoliation, moisturization, deep cleansing and oil imbalance. Each of these facial masks has a specific formulation, but all of the Ole Henriksen Masks Products have one thing in common: To provide the most effective active ingredients to address skin concerns and bring about positive changes in your skin condition.
Typically, Ole Henriksen Masks Products are applied after the skin has been thoroughly cleansed – a basic first step in any skin care regimen – so that the ingredients will have a clean, fresh surface on which to work. After the mask is allowed to sit, usually for 20 minutes (carefully read instructions for each mask) it is gently washed off with warm water. The improvement in skin condition can be immediately felt.

Additional Ole Henriksen Products Information
Facial treatment masks are special – differing in method from any other type of skin care – but that doesn’t mean that they can only be used on special occasions. The Ole Henriksen Masks Products can, and should, be incorporated into your regular skin care regimen.
While containing a large and diverse suite of botanical extracts, the key ingredient in the formula of Ole Henriksen African Red Tea Feel the Difference Perfecting Face Mask is Aspalathus linearis leaf extract. This small shrub, commonly known as African red tea or bush tea, only grows in the harsh desert areas of southwest Africa, specifically Botswana, Namibia and the Western Cape province of South Africa. Its antioxidant effects, combined with Macrocystis pyrifera (kelp) extract, (tea) leaf extract, pomegranate extract and vitamin E, provide strong anti-aging benefits. The shea butter, coconut oil and Borago officinalis (borage) seed oil are effective emollients. Taken together, this mask helps to calm, soothe, hydrate and protect the skin.
To help control excess oils, reduce inflammation of pores and provide a firming tone to the skin, Ole Henriksen Firm Action Mask uses kaolin (a refined form of fine white clay) as an absorbent. Botanical extracts, including Aloe barbadensis leaf juice and Hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel) among others, lift impurities from the skin, tighten skin tissues and hydrate the skin.
The discovery of the antioxidant benefits of blueberries revolutionized skin care, and Ole Henriksen Blue Black Berry Enzyme Mask takes this one step further by also including blackberry fruit extract to provide anti-aging benefits.
