  • Inspiration

    In Ole’s homeland of Scandinavia, saunas are revered as a place of both physical and mental relaxation, believed to improve circulation and detoxify. A cycle begins with a hot sauna session, followed by a cold plunge into a nearby lake, sea or swimming pool.

    This scrub features OLEHENRIKSEN’s Green Fusion Complex, a proprietary blend of potent active botanicals—including green tea, eucalyptus, algae (kelp) and Irish moss extracts—with natural antiseptic properties to help absorb excess oil and refine pores.

    Pore-Balance Facial Sauna Scrub is noncomedogenic.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mehhh Bought this about three months ago and use it at least twice a week. The warming sensation is nice but it only lasts like two seconds on my skin. Tried it during my hot showers and at the sink. The abrasive-ness of the volcanic sand is quite nice, its not soft powder or rocks, its in between! I feel like i need to put alot on my face to get a good scrub and ingredients to soak into my skin if you will. The packaging is okay, maybe a glass jar is better. I have to cut it open and found so much still left over. It's not for me personally

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Scrub Ever - Literally Best scrub ever. I’m a 30-year old guy with dry, sensitive skin and have been trying scrubs since junior high. The other scrubs (dermatologist recommended, in-store, online, etc.) we’re either too harsh or too mild. I realize that everyone has a different skin type and, scientifically, it’s hard to create one for everyone. But this one did it for me. I’ve used it for an entire year now and I’ve never had clearer skin.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Research ingredients! This is the first Olehenriksen product I ever purchased and used. I also purchased the mask thinking it complement each other well. After using this cleanser for 3 days, my skin is experiencing dermatitis symptoms including redness, itchiness, small bumps, tiny dry puss, and irritation. The glycolic acid works for some but definitely doesn’t work for me! It’s considered a harmful active ingredient, but beauty companies uses small portion in the ingredients to be “safe”. However, after multiple uses the skin is accumulating the glycolic acid. I really want to love this product based on the raves and promotion from beauty bloggers and other promoters. I have really bad oily skin so I purchased this product with high hopes and expectation. Unfortunately, my skin react to it negatively. I completely stop using the product but my face is trying to recover. These symptoms are uncomfortable and unbearable. I can’t go a day without the need to wash or splash my face with cold water. The ingredients in this product are too aggressive for me. I will not use or recommend this to anyone else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent exfoliator and pore control scrub I have only used for a few days and I noticed the difference with my facial skin. It has more radiant look to it after I finished the washing with this scrub. I really like the feeling of cool and warm sensation at the same time and my skin feels so clean and smooth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Scrub Ever! Love love love this scrub! With someone who has very dry flaky skin, this works wonders. It smells amazing and I love the hot minty sensation it gives, makes it feel like the product is actually working. Which it does! My skin feels very soft and refreshed after using. 10/10 recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MY NEW HOLY GRAIL CLEANSER I want to start by saying I have super sensitive skin: so much so that I’ve tried makeup wipes for sensitive skin and the next day my face broke out. So I’m always hesitant to try new things. I used to use the Arbonne Calm cleanser, but didn’t feel like it exfoliated at all. I happened to see a sample size of this at a Marshall’s, and figured it was so reasonably I would give it a shot. It only took one use and I. Am. Hooked. This product not only makes my skin so smooth and clean, but the post-cystic acne scarring I have is ALREADY fading and it’s only been 1 week. The immediate results from this product plus has re-sparked my dedication to my skincare routine (which has now all become olehenriksen) can’t say enough about this brand.
