Ole Henriksen Total Truth™ Eye Creme SPF 15

The final item from my Ole Henriksen haul. The tiny pot of eye cream.

From the website:

“This richly textured eye crème is designed to renew and protect your eyes. Nourishing Omega 3 Extracts hydrate and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while Micro Algae and Peptides strengthen and firm for total age-defying results.

BENEFITS

Omega 3 Happiness Concentrate: Improves microcirculation to treat dark circles and promotes happy eyes.
Tripeptide-5: Stimulates collagen synthesis to help eliminate fine lines and wrinkles
Micro Algae: Firms skin and boosts collagen production”

I found it to be a good evening eye cream. It’s thick, rich and really hydrating. My eye area looked a bit brighter after using this.

It improved my lines just slightly, but the results weren’t dramatic enough for me to get too excited. I didn’t notice much lightening of my dark circles, but to be fair mine are uniquely dark and famously obstinate.

I did enjoy it as a standard eye cream, and it found that my eye area seemed to get firmer the more I used it. I needed to be careful while putting in on because it stings a bit if I get too much in my eye.

Would I buy the full size pot? Well, it’s expensive and I have greater needs, so this wouldn’t be my first choice. If I badly needed an eye cream and this were the only one on the sales shelf, I would get it because I don’t dislike it.

  1. The formula looks nice. And I think I can overlook the tiny bit of alcohol.
