Let’s talk skin care…. so many things to consider. From cleansers, toners, serums, eye creams, moisturizers and so much more— where does a girl even start? I decided to start with serums. I feel like eye creams and serums are crucial to my skin, so I will start there.
About my skin: I don’t have super sensitive skin, but it is combination and changes with the seasons – drier in fall/winter and slightly oily in spring/summer. I am sensitive to added fragrances, so that is a big consideration in my choices.
Based on reviews (on Sephora.com), my first trial is Ole Henriksen Truth Serum. The Sephora site describes it as good for multiple skin types and as helping with dryness, dullness, uneven texture and loss of firmness… all things I look for in a serum. It is also described as being made without Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates which is a plus. It contains vitamin C and collegen which can contribute to brightening and hydration.
My thoughts: The texture/feel of this serum is a smooth gel. This is especially good as it is cooling to the touch. For me it was absorbed quickly and made my skin ready for my moisturizer. My face did not feel tight or oily, simply a smooth canvas for makeup in daytime. After using for a few weeks, my skin does appear to have the beginning effects of using a product with vitamin C and I will continue until I finish the bottle and give an update if there is more visible change. The only negative I have is that there is a strong scent/fragrance to the product. It is a orange/citrus smell so that doesn’t bother me. My concern is that “parfum/fragrance” is the 10th ingredient, which means there is quite a lot in there. This would be an ideal product for me if there were much less or no fragrance as my skin is a bit sensitive to added scents. If fragrance is not a concern for you, this would be a great serum to try. The brand website also has a small version so you can try with out spending more on the full size bottle.
I have another serum in line to try out, so stay tuned. Thank you so much for reading. I would be grateful if you could like this post and blog — and even share you have another skin care lover in your life.
