Olehenriksen’s Glow20H Dark Spot Toner has become a staple in my skin care routine over the last year and a bit. I had never found any toners that worked for me in the past, but I have noticed a visible difference on my hyperpigmentation within the first month and a bit of use.
My skin is very sensitive and I find that other toners tend to burn my face, but that isn’t the case with this one. It also has a very pleasant scent to it that reminds me a lot of a lemon meringue pie, while I found that other toners I’ve tried had a vinegary scent to it which was very off putting.
What makes this product a staple for me apart from the effectiveness on my skin? The price is also reasonable. The standard size is $38 CAD and the smaller one is $22. After seeing great results for many months, I wanted to change up what products I was using and try different brands but found myself always coming back to this. And example of this was that I read a lot of positive things about the Drunk Elephant C-Firma Serum helping people with hyperpigmentation, but it didn’t work for me. I didn’t see any difference at the end of the bottle and at the $105 price tag, the fact it needs to be kept in a fridge to prevent it from oxidizing rapidly, and the gross metallic smell left me essentially running back to Olehenriksen.
