[Review] Ole Henriksen Truth Serum® Collagen Booster


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.

Realise there’s no Collagen listed in its ingredient? hehe

I first received this product at Sephora US for a free sample (7ml) using my beauty rewards card.

Like most skincare products with vitamin C ingredients, it smells citrusy orangey. I love the smell 🙂

A little bit goes a long way and one pump (frm the full size bot) is enough to spread all over my face and neck. My 7ml sample lasted me for 3 weeks! I like to spread & rub onto my palms before patting it on my face, a technique taught by the people @ Clarins for better absorption. This product starts off sticky (maybe cos i pat) cos the texture is rather thick and viscous but it absorbs into the skin quickly and doesn’t leave a sticky residue behind. I had a few acne scars at my temples and they are slowing but surely fading away after using this for 3 weeks. Maybe it’s me but perhaps the vitamin c is working its magic.

My sis recently started working in an a/c environment and mentioned that her skin feels dry. Adding this to her skincare regime really helped to plump up the moisture levels in her skin and she was so happy that she went ahead to buy the full sized bottle @ Sephora Singapore.

US$48 + tax  (1 fl oz / 30 ml)
SGD 80
