It’s the truth!

Here we are, in Mid May.  It’s hard to believe that time has flown so fast!  Winter is waning and Spring and Summer are trying to come out to play. If your’e like me, winter can leave your skin a bit dead and dull, needed a bit of a pick me up.  Or perhaps you always need a little boost for your skin.

In a recent Test Tube, I received a large sample size (.5 oz) of the Ole Hendrickson Truth Serum Collagen Booster.  This vitamin C complex is said to helps smooth out lines and wrinkles and prevents further damage. It’s also loaded with antioxidants to fight off those nasty free radicals that make our skin look not so nice.

Can I just tell you, I love this serum!  It’s actually more like orange juice for your skin.  It’s not heavy like many serums, and absorbs instantly, leaving a bit of a tingly sensation.  I’ve been using this for a week, and while I dont’ have that many wrinkles to release, my skin is bright and soft, and I do notice it looks perkier.

So what’s the big deal about Vitamin C in skin care?  Vitamin C, and specifically L-Ascorbic acid, has been proven to promote the development of collagen.  Collagen production naturally decreases with age, and sun worshippers can also have a decreases in collagen.  Collagen is what gives your skin that bounce, elasticity, and youthful appearance, which is why as you age, you sage, get deep lines, and loose plumpness.

Vitamin C has also been shown to hep reduce lines, scars, and wrinkles.  I personally use maracuja oil on my hands and some small scars.  Maracuja oil is another potent Vitamin C source.  I prefer the Truth Serum for my face as it’s weightless.  The Truth Serum also has green tea extracts, which also help with aging and damage, licorice extract which evens skin tone, and hyaluronic acid which is a super moisturizer.

I highly suggest you check this out!  I will definately be repurchasing when I run out.  you can find it at QVC, Sephora, and better department stores for $48 per one ounce bottle.

    As recently as last week, I saw a sephora.com 500 point bonus of Ole Henriksen, for anyone who wants to try it without ponying up the $$$.

    Yes, saw this too. Of course you have to pony up the dollars to buy something to get your perk but it’s a great way to try the products! ;-)

    I use Maracuja oil which is not supposed to be used during the day. I wonder whether this is because Vitamin C oxidizes on your skin in daylight if it’s not specifically stabilized, and whether Ole Henrikson takes care of that. I also have two of the 500-point O.H. perk kits.

      THe main reason they say don’t use Maracuja oil in the day is because it’s a heavy moisturizer. The BE Serum is very similar in texture, tho not ingredients to the oil.

      The Truth Serum is a much lighter formula with NO oil i it – completely different product. It states to use it any time – it’s primarily a skin brightener, NOT a moisture and repair treatment.

      Use those kits and let us know what you think!
