IS THERE REALLY A SERUM OUT THERE FOR SENSITIVE SKIN?!?
I've had some difficulty in locating the perfect daily facial serum with my super sensitive skin and I'm quite sure that I am not alone in this quest! What happens often, is that the serum I do end up giving a try, causing an adverse skin reaction, doesn't really work or make much of a difference, or causes me to break out :/ Because many serums in days past had caused blemishes and acne issues, I had steered clear of them; however, I started to realize that I might be missing out all together!
I decided to make a change and look for a serum that I could actually use. One of the BEST serums that I've found is made by Ole Henriksen and I wanted to share what I LOVE about this product and why you'll want to add this one to your daily skincare regimen :) You can purchase this product in a variety of sizes, however I did score my most recent version from inside of Sephora's beauty favorites Beauty Closet [I reviewed this item last Thurs- make sure to see what it's all about & check out my post!]
WHO IS OLE HENRIKSEN?
Ole Henriksen is a Danish skin consultant who branched out into the world of making his own skincare products. He started up his own spa business, which Ole has been running for over 30 years and then created his own beloved line that's now available in over 12 countries. Ole's interest in skincare was piqued when after moving to Indonesia, he was stricken with the skin condition cystic acne.
It was here at a clinic in Jakarta, that an aesthetician treated his condition through botanical treatments that also cured his skin problems! Henriksen then moved to London to further his passion of skincare, by pursuing degrees in skincare and cosmetic chemistry. Ole is really known for his "down-to-earth" approach with those around him- customers and business associates alike :)
THE BEAUTY CLOSET RECOMMENDS:
truth serum collagen booster
[1 fl. oz size]*
If you've been seeking an all-round effective serum that makes a real difference- yet doesn't cause skin irritation or annoying breakouts, then this is the perfect serum for you. I would really recommend truth serum collagen booster to any woman of any age! It's a great addition and must have for any beauty routine :)
It's rare to find so may wonderful ingredients in a serum, but with Ole Henriksen that's what you get: Grapefruit & Orange extracts to brighten and tone; greet tea extract to infuse cells with antioxidants and aid in fending off damage; Rosehips to fortify and repair cells, with concentrated Vitamin C; Sodium hyaluronate to provide a binding moisturization to skin; and Vitamin E that rejuventates and heals your skin too!
The well-designed glass pump bottle makes it a cinch to get out the right amount of product, without wasting it as the same time :) You also don't need much for application as I found that only about 1-2 pump depresses were utilized each time I used the serum- that managed to cover my entire neck and face area with a good, thin layer!
As for the feel and look of the product itself- it will really surprise you! I enjoyed the perfect texture that made spreading a thin layer quickly, an easy task :) The scent is a pleasant but light hint of citrus, which makes for a nice bonus with this product. I don't run across serums that often that have the all-around goodness that truth serum does, but this collagen booster really does hit the mark!
By the end of the first week of usage with Ole Henriksen's truth serum, you will definitely notice an improvement in your skin's brightness, smoothness, and evenness of skin tone too :) I also saw a marked difference in my acne issues and that wasn't something I was actually expecting with a serum at all- but it was a very pleasant surprise!
I would have to say that the only drawback that I could find with truth serum by Ole Henriksen, is that is may be what many might consider a tad bit on the pricier side. I'll admit that this is something that does indeed hold me back at times myself, however if the product works- I'm also willing to dig a little deeper for some extra cash ;) This product is one of those times and I would give it 5 STARS ***** as it's well-deserved, even at the higher price point.
