Ole Henriksen Truth Serum

A 1oz/30ml bottle of this product will cost you $60 at Sephora.  That works out to $2 per ml of product.  It smells heavenly, it comes in a pump bottle, it delivers a dose of Vitamin C to help brighten the skin by encouraging cell turnover.  It works, and it is incredible.

It is also not even close to a budget-friendly product.  There is the way it evens out my complexion or the reality of how it makes my skin appear to be lit from within, which makes me say that it is totally worth a try if you have the option to test it out.  I love how it smells and the way that it soaks into my skin quickly without tackiness.  It is indeed a perfect product in every way but price.

As described on the Ole Henriksen website:

Truth Serum is like a daily multivitamin for the skin and Ole Henriksen’s #1 age-defying serum. Ole was an early adopter of vitamin C in skincare, believing that its antioxidant properties and role in promoting collagen make it a crucial ingredient. Supercharged with True-C Complex™ and collagen, this potent vitamin c collagen serum helps brighten and firm the skin as it delivers all-day hydration.

Enriched with orange and green tea extracts, this fast-absorbing, oil-free formula revives the complexion. Indulge in this serum’s sweet, energizing citrus aroma and silky texture as it glides beautifully on the skin for a healthier, more youthful-looking Ole Glow™.
