[Review] Olehenriksen Wonderfeel Double Cleanser

With all of the winter-proof beauty looks we’ll be wearing this season, it can sometimes be a struggle to find something that takes it all off at the end of the day!

One of my favorite products is the Wonderful Double Cleanser by Olenhenriksen ($39). This creamy cleanser is perfect for taking off the setting sprays, long wear foundation, and even stubborn eye makeup. Your skin will benefit from the olive and borage seed oils, as well as other ingredients like black current extract. The combination of all these special oils makes the cleanser smell amazing.

The best part? The cleanser includes a cloth you can use to remove any remaining makeup. Sounds good? Find out more about the Wonderful Double Cleanser by Olenhenriksen.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard of Rihanna’s new makeup line, Fenty Beauty. The line includes highlighters, primers, and of course, the fan favourite foundation with a whopping 40 shades for people of all colours. The foundation has been getting rave reviews from beauty bloggers, magazines, and everyday beauty lovers alike.

The foundation has medium coverage (buildable to full coverage) with a matte finish, and an oil-free formula. It also comes with 32ml of foundation instead of the traditional 30ml.To ensure that you’ll be matte for the whole day, the foundation is made with “climate-adaptive” technology resistant to sweat and humidity.

I received the foundation in Shade 370 which is a perfect match for my skin. When I first put on the foundation, I found it to be very natural looking on the skin, so it wasn’t very obvious that I was wearing foundation. The matte finish was also very nice, and made my skin very smooth. My favourite thing about this foundation is how long wearing it is.

I can definitely say that this is now my go to foundation when I know I won’t have time for touch-ups. I have worn it now about 3 times for 12 hour days, and to my surprise, when I come home my makeup still looks freshly applied.

I can’t wait see how this foundation performs in the summer months, but for now it will be great for holiday parties!

Fenty Beauty is available at Sephora
