Ole Henriksen Hygge HydraClay Detox Mask – Product Review


Contains – 3 oz


Hello everyone!  Can’t believe it’s Monday again!! The weekend went by so fast!  Also, I have to apologize (AGAIN) about the missed posts last week.  It was a bit crazy at work and I didn’t have any time to schedule anything besides for the first post on Monday.  I wanted to catch up on some blogs this weekend, but didn’t really get a chance. However, I am trying to get back on a schedule so again – so sorry!

Ole Henriksen Hygge HydraClay Detox Mask

Today, we’re talking skincare – and more specifically – one of my favorite masks to clean out my skin without being too abrasive.  Lately, I’ve been breaking out (A LOT) and I think it’s because I still haven’t replaced my Clarisonic brush heads. On top of that, I’ve been eating a lot of chocolate since Easter and I’m sure that’s not helping matters.  When I have a few bad breakouts, rather than doing a really powerful purifying clay mask, strong exfoliating mask, or a chemical peel – I like to do a gentler alternative that still provides results.

That’s where this product comes in – it’s Ole Henriksen’s Hygge HydraClay Detox Mask and it’s actually the last step to his Power Play Transforming Facial System, which I mentioned in my review of the complete 3-step system here.  This mask is suitable for all skin types due to its ingredients.  It has Vitamin E to help increase cell turnover, which creates a gentle exfoliation for textured or blemish-prone skin, as well as Kaolin to detoxify the pores and remove excess sebum and other impurities – which is perfect for oily skin.  However, the addition of some botanical extracts (like jojoba, grapeseed, sunflower, almond and borage oils) replenish the skin with moisture and nutrients, making it perfect for dry skin types – while the Chamomile flower extract smooth and calm even the most sensitive skins.  Additionally the star of the show HydraClay both draws out dirt and replaces it with essential hydration due to the innovative clay-oil fusion.

I sometimes like to combine this with a Biore pore strip for my nose – since that always needs something a bit stringer to really clean out my pores.  It’s a great combination since they both need to be left on for about 10-15 minutes. When I remove this mask though, my skin looks bright and healthy – it does not irritate any of my blemishes, but rather reduces any redness or inflammation caused by those breakouts.  It smells very familiar – almost like a baby rash cream, which sounds weird, but it’s actually quite natural and unlike other highly fragranced masks that smell artificial. I love how smooth my skin looks after this mask and how well my serums and moisturizes apply/absorb as well.

Struggle Factor – 1:  Honestly, I have nothing bad to say about this mask.  It’s as easy to apply as any other clay mask and though the price point may seem a bit high – I think for the amount of product you get and the quality of product, it’s well worth it!  As you know, I truly love Ole Henriksen’s products and I completely stand by pretty much everything he comes out with. For some reason, it all just works with my skin. If you looking for some great skin care to invest in – give this brand a try!!


Have any of you used this Hygge mask before?  What did you think of it? Any of you looking for something new and thinking about trying this out?  I’m not at all sponsored, but if you use my link ( to place an order, you’ll get $15.00 off!!  I also get $15.00 so if you feel more comfortable, use the actual product links at the beginning of this post – none of those are affiliate links so they’ll just take you to product pages 🙂


Love you all and let me know if these work for any of you!!
