Bar for a Shampoo?
Okay. So it's my own darn fault for buying the darn thing, but hey. I tried it. It not only did NOT clean my hair, it dried it to a Brillo pad. It's an item to bring with you on a camping trip, I suppose but not if you intend on combing out your hair afterward. I had to reenter the shower and use half a bottle of conditioner to get my hair somewhat approachable.

Olay facial Hair Removal
Great products for a great price are what I think of when I see the name Olay. The Smooth Finish Hair Removal Duo is an Olay product and the price is decent for use on thinner hair so it’s no exception, I suppose. The two-step process is doable from the privacy of your own home and all you need is a washcloth, a sink and a timer. In less than 10 min. you can be smooth with minimal effort. But then there is the foul scent. Unfortunately, it is NOT fragrance-free but the fragrance isn’t as strong as other products of this nature. You are using it right under your nose for those 8 minutes I admit. But it dissipates. I have pretty thick hair so it probably wasn't as effective as it could have been but on thinner hair it works well at making you smooth without plucking or a razor and it’s a gentle and non-irritating alternative.

Clean but moisturized
On my thick, coarse hair, this shampoo left all strands clean but moisturized until the next washing a few days later. Many shampoos that clean the hair dry it out. Others that moisturize leave my hair and scalp greasy. This shampoo did a decent job for a reasonable price. For a softer, bouncier mane though, I'd use the matching conditioner.

If you like a pink tint to your lips, you may like this slightly-waxy balm. It is cheap, yes, but it looks cheap. I'd stick with Chapstick or Vaseline as a lip moisturizer and a MAC lipstick to color your mouth. I gave this product to my daughter and she seemed happy with it.

Sheer Transformation Cream
This cream was included in the package of Ole Henriksen Products through Sephora's Beauty Insider Points. It is a jar of very thick cream that I rubbed over a couple Chicken Pox scars on my forehead and nose. I also have been using it under my eyes. I'm finding the results minimal on the scar issue but I am pleased with the dewy, glowing results under my eyes. Will I buy a jar? Probably not but it leaves a pleasing glow with a very small amount of product. When used this way, the price tag isn't bad.

Luxury For Sensitive Skin
This creamy, silky, fresh-smelling cleanser feels so luxurious when I massage it onto my sensitive, reactive skin and rinse it off with warm water. It doesn't burn or dry out my skin, and when I use a cotton ball to tone my face after, no make-up remains..It is luxury. Pure luxury. My face feels youthfully soft and smooth before even my Night Treatment.. And at a half pump a day, it costs under fifty dollars a year.

Olay and Ole Truth (No surgery)
Amazing Wow IN CREDIBLE! After using the Olay Regenerist Night Cream, I pump a squirt of this serum by Ole into my left hand and use a finger from my right hand to spread a drop over my laugh lines and under my eyes where I have several crows feet. The other day, I wasn't sure if what I saw in the bathroom mirror was real. I had to go to a different room with different light and a different mirror. I am stunned. My face looks like it's several years younger. Incredible. It may seem expensive at first glance but a pump a day makes Ole Truth Serum totally worth the price. And that's the truth.

Wow. I was given a sample of this thick cream with my Sephora order and am amazed at the results. It is great for sensitive skin types, especially those with eczema or rosacea, and although you can smell the eucalyptus at first, the scent doesn't linger. For drier skins, it soothes any irritation and absorbs quickly and...it's reasonably priced!

Ole Night Cream
My night-time ritual includes cleansing my face and using Olay Regenerist night cream. I have added to that ritual lately becauseI got a small trio of Ole products as a reward from Sephora. It'll probably last a month though, because I use such a little amount. I remove the lid of this greenish gel (that looks like aloe vera gel) and dip the tip of my finger into it, smoothing that teeny amount over my whole face. It is light, essentially fragrance-free, and leaves my skin looking smoother and younger but I probably won't buy it because it costs a pretty penny and can't be found at the drug store. But does it work? Oh yeah.

I got a sample of this scrub by Zirh and used it before realizing it was meant for men. I thought the smell was like kitchen cleaner and although the scrub wasn't horrible, it wasn't meant for my dry, sensitive skin. It's really for oily skin and I can see why it's for men.
