The eye cream is a little thick/greasy. The moisturizer is great and not too heavy. The facewash is a foam which is really light and easy on the skin. Hope this helps. And, as far as the anti-agng...I've been using for about 2 weeks and noticed MAJOR results with the little fine lines around my eyes and creases in between my eyebrows.

No Not at all, just make sure you let the spray toner dry before you put on moisturizer. and only use lotion sparingly, a little really does go a long way.

I'm 24 and I'm very cautious about skincare because frankly I don't want wrinkles when I'm 40. But yes this is a great line for preventive care because it's hydrating and not drying and intense as some other lines for mature aging skin. I bought my mom Lancome's Genefique and it does work wonders but I feel it was strong and very expensive for me. But perfect for my mom that already had wrinkles. This is definately a step up for young (acne prone) skin and before the aging skincare line. I would definately recommend this kit. It's amazing

I would use this on any skin type especially if you are a little dry or if you are out in the sun a lot and your face gets a lot of sun or if you have tanned a lot this product would be great. I also do not think your age is too young to start protecting it.

I'm 33 and don't feel it's too much for me - I, too, wanted to do more preventative - no harsh feeling on this kit, which I love. Very light feel to this - not the HEAVY feel that so many "age-preventing" moisturizers have. Love it.

I've always had problems with acne, especially after giving birth, & when I first tried this skincare regimen, I was worried the anti-aging ingredients might exacerbate them. On the contrary, my skin is the clearest it has ever been. I have been amazed by how well this product line has worked for my skin.

I have tried both, and continue to use both sets. I use the three little wonders primarily for daytime, and the anti-aging at night. I vary the use of the creams from day to day, depending on what my skin is doing. (The anti-aging cream is very helpful when my skin feels drier, and I use the three little wonders when I feel more oily.)

These are smaller sizes and there are more pieces from the line, but overall they give you a similar feel. They are also age-defying so have active ingredients. If you can do the wonders kit, you could do these :)

If you have sensitive skin, this set is more suitable. The invigorating night gel in "Three Little Wonders " might slightly irritates your face, if you have sensitive skin.

Question
Red Tea line vs 3 Little Wonders
I am 50. The store set me up w/3 Little Wonders plus a night serum, which I liked. Then the Red Tea aging kit came out so I bought it and also love it. The question is, should I use up the rest of the 3 Little Wonders and then just stick w/the Red Tea line or should I use both at the same time? I do love the serums for both day and night as they seem to clarify my skin but don't want to waste my money.

finish up what you have before opening the new stuff, all these come in jars and once they are opened they tend to get oxidized and lose potency. The red tea stuff is amazing, so hurry up :)

For what it's worth, I use both. I use the three little wonders during the day, and switch to the anti-aging line for night. I vary the moisturizers from both kits depending on the needs of my skin for that day. I think they compliment each other well.

I've used the 3 little wonders kit as well and I think it would be perfectly fine to mix. I've been using the African Tea set and will likely add one of their toners to my routine and am considering one of their other eye creams. I've mixed in a few other products and it doesn't seem to impact the overall effectiveness.

They are definitely completely different products so I think if you're really looking to improve your skin then you're going to want to use both. If you just want to maintain it then the red tea set should be just fine.

Question
Can I add the truth collagen booster with this line?
hi!
A beauty consultant recommended the red anti-age started kit for me. I started using it 2 days ago, saw a big difference in my skin.
I have highly sensitive, combination skin and suffer from redness on my cheeks. I've been doing some research and noticed that the 3 little wonders kit has tons of great reviews about the kit and the Truth Serum collagen booster. I am 27, is this kits right for me? or can I simply combine the Truth serum collagen booster with the African red tea kit?

None of the kits come with a serum, so I would suggest determining which one is the most appropriate for your skin and adding that to whichever regimen you choose. It could be useful to look at the OH official website. From what I have read, I believe the products in the bright pink bottles are meant for more skin that has already aged and needs wrinkle reversal, whereas the products in the orange are age prevention. I have tried both of these serums (the bright pink called "See the Difference Serum" and the collagen-boosting orange "Truth Serum"), and I think it depends on your skin type. The one in the pink bottle has a cream consistency and the orange bottle is more of a gel; I think this is because most anti-wrinkle creams fight the dryness of maturing skin, so they assume skin is dry. For this reason, I use the orange bottle (the one you described) in the summer and the pink bottle in the winter. In general, they would likely suggest the orange bottle for younger, perhaps oilier skin (for reference, I'm 21 with normal-to-combination skin). Both serums are excellent, and I'm sure that either would supplement the Red Tea Anti-Aging Kit beautifully.

Yes I believe the Truth serum is actually the recommended morning serum for this line. If you look up the Ole Henriksen page on sephora and click on beauty regimens and look at the age defense part it tells you what you should use.

I am 41, but definately think I would have used this product as a preventative line when I was in my twenties. I have used other products from Ole Henriksen, but have'nt seen as dramatic of effect as I have with the African Red Tea line... You may want to get a sample of the collagen booster to try before you purchase the full size, I too have sensitive skin and some of the serums tended to upset my skin.
