My friend is a VERY successful makeup artist and she is the one who turned me on to these products... She suggested I try these products a bit differently then directed and my results have been PHENOMENAL!

I use the Truth Serum, Sheer Transformation and THEN the Night Gel in the evenings. The key is making sure you don't use too much and waiting 10 minutes between products. This allows them to absorb fully and I have never had a problem with the products balling up.

In the morning I use the Truth Serum and then Truth Revealed Super Cream with SPF... again, waiting about 10 minutes between applications.

Sure it takes a while but it is absolutely worth the results!!

If you look at the Ole Henriksen product page under the skincare regimens tab it explains how to use a lot of the products. For these, truth serum + sheer transformation in AM and invigorating night gel + sheer transformation in PM. I agree that if you use the night gel without following with the moisturizer your skin will feel extra tight and dry. (And mine is normally oily.) So be sure to moisturize after.

Most people use this kit completely wrong and therefore do not get its full benefits. In the morning after cleansing, apply the truth serum and after it dries, apply the sheer transformation. At night after cleansing, apply the night gel and after it dries, apply the sheer transformation.

Question
I think one of the products in the kit is causing breakouts
Hi,
After 4 months of sudden hormonal acne, I used Ole's acne kit and I managed to get rid of my breakouts. The products worked slow, but they worked. I did have to stop using the Vitamin E moisturizer. I was still getting daily breakouts until I stopped using it. Now, it's been 3 or 4 weeks that I am blemish free and I decided to buy this kit because I was left with a lot of scars. I started using it last night. The only new product I introduced to the routine last night was the sheer transformation moisturizer since I was already using the invigorating night gel as part of the acne kit routine. This morning I woke up and I have 2 or 3 new blemishes. I still decided to keep the routine and this morning I used the serum and the sheer transformation moisturizer again. I don't want to give up on the products so easily, but I don't want to go back to the way my face was 2 months ago.

The life cycle of a pimple is going to be anywhere from 1-3 months. This means the pimple is going to be sitting under your skin for usually at least a month before it ever appears on the surface. Thus, if you used the product once, and woke up the very next morning with a new pimple, that pimple was already there and could not have been caused by this product. This being said I have not actually tried this set, and I do not personally know if it can cause acne.

Keep the invigorating creme and drop the other. It could be too much citrus (acidity) and causing you to dry out too much. I have been using all three of these products and have been having great success with breakout prevention, but sometimes when I use all three at once it is a little too much. I use the night gel in the morning and night and then use the others every other night alternating between the transformation and serum. Good luck!

A Sephora rep once told me that you could use the gel alone at night as a moisturizer...maybe you could try that? Or if your face feels too tight after the gel (mine does), try a very little bit of the sheer transformation after the gel. I've found that these products are very moisturizing, and a little goes a long way. If I were you, I'd put a good amount of the gel on, but just a dime size of the sheer transformation.

I had the SAME situation. Good skin after a whole lifetime of acne ups and downs (finally got a regimine that worked) and wanted something to help smooth things out and fade the scars. I already knew the truth serum did not break me out because I'd used it before...adding the other 2 products unfortunately broke me out like crazy. In my case it turned out to be mostly the night gel (but the cream was a little heavy for me so I discontinued both anyway), and I didn't clear up until I completely stopped using it (I gave it about a month before I threw in the towel). But I got clear again about a week after I stopped the other two products. Ihope this helps!

Hi!!
Sheer transformation is waaayyy to greasy, I highly suggest that you stop using it at night, stay with the Night gel firming and don't add anything else. A lot of people in the forum commented that without the Sheer Trans. this regimen is too drying for their skin, and its truth, that's why acne prone people like us, should stick with the less greasy routine possible, specially at nights.

good luck and great skin!!

I would say, give them a try! They are seriously AMAZING. There are lots of reviews for them by ladies of 50 who are raving about them, too. The great thing is, is you don't like them Sephora will take them back and find you something that works!
If these don't work you could also try the Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus product. It also gets RAVE reviews, and is more for people who have sun spots that need fading and wrinkles. It is for the sun spot reason that I bought it for my mother (who is 62) for Christmas.

parabens
I got the 3 (mini) little wonders set as a point perk. Liked the skin results and just re-ordered these products.

I can't be sure, but perhaps it has to do with the concentration. Companies don't have to list parabens if they are under a certain concentration, and the smaller size may need a greater concentration to preserve the product (for whatever reason). That means there may be parabens in the larger product, but they may not be at a high enough concentration where they need to be accounted for.

That happens because you're not getting enough exfoliation when you wash your face. 2-3 times a week, use a washcloth with your regular face wash and scrub away, or buy a scrub, any will do. So you don't have to wait forever for the blackheads to finally clear, you want to go get a facial to jumpstart the process. I hope that helps!
