What is it?

Originally included in the Ole Henriksen 3 Little Wonders set, this moisturizer quickly became a fan favourite thanks to its versatility. The Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturizer can be used as either a day or night moisturizer, it’s suitable for all ages and skin types.

This vegan, oil-free moisturizer weightlessly provides skin with a boost of hydration that won’t clog pores. Not only is it an ultra lightweight way to provide hydration to tired, thirsty skin, it also has a silky whipped texture that’s quickly absorbed.

Formulated with multi-fruit acids, plus liquorice and pea extracts, it’s a targeted formula that’s designed to gently refine uneven skin tone and texture. This silky, multitasking moisturizer is also the perfect prep step for makeup because it smooths and brightens for flawless foundation application.

‘Literally my holy grail’

So far this moisturizer has earned a 4.2-star rating from more than 2,800 customer reviews, as well as 89,000 “loves” from Sephora shoppers. Shoppers of all ages have been loving its lightweight texture, calling it their “holy grail.”

“I'm over 50, have pretty good skin, and have been using this moisturizer probably since it was first released. I love it. I apply it probably 5-6 nights per week. The best combination is with a facial oil. I mix a drop of oil with Sheer Transformation and the next day my skin is soft and smooth,” one reviewer noted. “I have tons of products, both skin care and cosmetics, but this is one of the few products I've finished and repurchased.”

“Literally my holy grail. I have yet to find another product to replace this moisturizer. It’s perfect for my combination sensitive skin. It’s moisturizing enough without making me oily throughout the day. My favorite moisturizer hands down,” added another.

Others have found the lightweight texture not moisturizing enough for their needs, so if you find yourself in need of intense hydration you may want to pass on this cream.

“Too light for me, but I have mature skin and live in the desert. If you're younger or live someplace with actual humidity, this would be great,” reads one review.

Since it’s on sale now, you’ll want to snag the Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturizer while you can, along with more of Sephora’s sale beauty finds below.
