Ole Henriksens Truth Serum Vitamin C Collagen Booster REVIEW!!

I received a sample of this product from a clarisonic package from Sephora. I was eager to try this, I am trying to find the perfect vitamin c serum. The packaging on this product is in a clear jar with a pump. The only complaint is it is a clear jar. Vitamin C wont be effective for long with the presence of air and sunlight.

As far as the claims go : It is an antioxidant serum that is meant to brighten, increase collagen production, minimize fine lines, and it also defends against free radical damage.  It also states it contains green tea extract and sodium hyaluronate. This nourishes and hydrates the skin. It also contains orange extract which is suppose to renew cells. There is grapefruit extract with is an antiseptic. There is rose hips seeds extract which is healing and repairs damage. There is Sodium Ascrobyl Phosphate which helps aid in the production of collagen. There is also Ester C which is the stable vitamin c.

My own observations on the ingredients and my personal experience with the serum is not very good. The ingredients are the first thing I will address. The only good thing about the ingredients list is the vitamin c ingredient is the second ingredient.v This ensures that the vitamin c is going to work on what you want to minimize. However there are some ingredients that are damaging to the skin and further damage. The first one is the orange extract. This is very irritating to the skin. This isn't a very good ingredient in the serum even though they try to state it is an effective ingredient. The next one is Linalool. This is also an irritating ingredient. The next is fragrance for the same reasons. My experience with this serum was not bad at first. However my skin started feeling irritated after a few days. It started to burn a little.

Overall I don't recommend this product to people it is great with the amount of vitamin c and vitamin e but it has a few irritating ingredients that damage the skin. I wont purchase this product in the future. This is $48- $72. You can purchase this at Sephora.
