Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Vitamin C Collagen Booster

When I first tried this (from the kit I bought a few months ago) I didn’t fall in love right away.

It took a few more “dates” before I started to see us being together in the long-term.

Now I can say I really love Truth Serum!

From the website:

“Like a daily vitamin for your face, this high powered Vitamin C complex helps smooth out lines and wrinkles and prevents further damage. Loaded with antioxidants to fight off environmental aggressors and moisture-binding ingredients to keep your skin nourished and protected, this aromatic serum is absorbed instantly and penetrates to the deeper layers of the skin to provide long term results. Sensitive skin prone to irritation will benefit immensely from the calming properties of this oil-free serum.


Grapefruit and Orange Extract: Purifying, astringent, brightening
Green Tea Extract: Protects against damage with antioxidants
Rosehips Extract: Repairs and strengthens with concentrated vitamin C
Sodium Hyaluronate: Binds moisture to the skin
Vitamin C: Calms, heals and strengthens collagen
Vitamin E: Heals, restores and nourishes”

I use this in the morning just after I wake up. I almost never wash my face in the morning. So after I (grudgingly) get out of bed, I head to the bathroom and grab this serum out of the medicine cabinet. It feels very refreshing and soothing on my skin. The scent is quite fruity and not too citrus-y. It smell sweet without being too overpowering on the senses.

I have noticed a brightness and smoothness to my face that is not present when I don’t use this. I think it has a positive effect on my skin. It makes my skin feel nourished and cared for.

    This one seems to give temporary effect..but replesnishing effect sounds good…and good point is that it is lightweight..

  2. I don’t think my skin could handle all that citrus/vitamin C.
