Happy new week lovelies,hope you all are doing good and starting the new week on a great note.Today I will be reviewing a product that i have been using for over a month now with great results and getting tons of compliments from friends and complete strangers alike,… aww girl what are you doing ?you look great… yes tons of that.
Well I was was reading through some articles on the net when my attention was drawn to this particular article by the great Dr Oz, The Best Kept Secrets of Anti aging, and voila my journey to discovering the benefits of Vitamin C and my adventure into this whole new world deepened even more with the introduction of Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen booster into my daily beauty routine.
This serum is the truth, and I mean it literally. It has a smooth and silky texture and gets soaked in almost immediately when applied to the skin leaving a fresh ,silky and soft skin behind.
As a dark skin woman, I do suffer from hyper pigmentation ,dark spots and scarring resulting from breakouts and picking on my pimples and sun damage from over the years ,made it even worse. So Im no stranger to trying out every new product in the market that promises to clear up my face and bring that youthful glow back. Yes I tried so many products and didn’t quite get the results I needed.I kid you not, even picking up the truth Serum from Sephora, I was skeptical but Im glad I did. I use this every morning and nigh on my face,neck and chest after cleansing. A little goes a long way, so don’t worry, you only need about 2 drops for every application. After 6 weeks of using The Ole Henriksen Truth Serum, my face has changed completely,well I don’t mean to be dramatic though, but as a young lady approaching 30 and suffering from Hyper pigmentation, I have not seen my skin glow this way in a long time,my laugh lines are smoothing out, the scarring is clearing up and I just glow.. This product does exactly what it says ,no wonder the dermatologists on the Dr Oz show swore by it, saying Vitamin C is the best kept Anti aging secret in Hollywood. They promise to start seeing complete results of using Vitamin C on the skin after 6 months, but Ole Henriksen s truth serum is giving me those results in 6weeks and Im loving every inch of it.
Apart from doing exactly what its says it will do, this serum is averagely priced.I mean coming from a market where everything cosmetics and beauty with some outrageous claims cost an arm and a leg, I ll say at $48 for a 30ml bottle, the truth serum is a great choice.
This serum is non irritating and even on a very sensitive skin like mine, thats definitely a plus.
I have a love/hate relationship with the smell of this serum, sometimes I love it and sometimes I don’t.While some people will find the smell appealing others don’t. It has a light citric smell ,which isn’t over powering and fades away a few minutes after application. Well if after almost 2 months of usage and I can’t possibly state my complete Love for the smell,then its a con for me.
Another con is, if you have dry to very dry skin, this product can be a little over drying for you. It gets soaked in immediately I apply it on my dry combination skin. It leaves my oily t-zone particularly dry but hydrated which I love, but the rest on the face is left sometimes too dry for my liking, but nothing that a good moisturizer can’t fix though. So my ladies with dry skin should be cautious when using this but those with oily skin will benefit a lot from this I believe.
Any of you beautiful ladies tried this serum or any other products from Ole Henriksen line? want to share your experience with us? please leave a comment below. I look forward to reading from you. I will try more products from the line and hopefully do more in depth reviews. Vitamin C is a great anti aging product and so many reputable beauty brands out there have different products containing the golden Vitamin C,so ladies its up to you to find which one works for you,remember its never to early to start caring for the skin you re in. As for me, Ole Henriksen s truth serum does the job..
