Ole Henriksen Perfect Truth CC Creme Broad Spectrum SPF 30

s1529601-main-Lhero

This CC Creme from Ole Henriksen knocks it out of the park! The first thing I notice when I apply it is the fresh citrus scent, perfect for the mornings I am just dragging (so every day). The product is very lightweight and melts right into my skin. One pump and I have great coverage and it evens out my skin tone. If I want a little more coverage I just add a bit more and voila, skin perfected.

My new addiction, I love the soft, dewy glow it leaves on my skin. As someone who always fights to banish shine I never thought I would like a dewy look, but this one is just right. It evens my skin tone and leaves my skin glowing. I LOVE that it has SPF 30, one more layer of protection for my skin. And if that wasn’t enough it is also working to minimize fine lines, lighten dark spots and reduce redness. Slam dunk!!

OLEHENRIKSEN ultimate l LIFT serum review

CYMERA_20131125_162652

A combination of allergies and lack of sleep had me feeling and looking like Droopy Dog. It may be cute for dogs, but not so cute staring back at me in the mirror. When offered the chance to try the brand spanking new OleHenriksen ultimate lift serum I jumped at the chance.

droopy-02

I have been using the serum for almost a month and man does it work! The serum is really lightweight and has a beautiful soft floral scent. I apply it every morning and at night before bed and I love how quickly it absorbs. One thing I noticed is it seems to work right away making my skin feel tighter and keeps my skin looking smooth all day.

Now after a few weeks use my whole face is looking so much firmer and lifted. It even seems to make my pores less noticeable. If you are starting to see the signs of aging this is one serum you won’t want to miss.

OLEHENRIKSEN ultimate|LIFT serum is a dual-action miracle worker that visibly lifts and restructures skin, while immediately tightening for sculpted facial contours. This lightweight, oil-free serum diminishes the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles and plumps to restore a youthful appearance.

Powered by high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid, skin is densely moisturized and plumped from the inside out and protected by a lightweight barrier that locks in hydration. ultimate|LIFTTM serum also contains a gravity defying complex of copper tripeptide and botanical collagen stimulators to rebuild firmness and elasticity and lock in the hyluronic acid, while restructuring and redensifying skin.

Key Benefits:

* Creates an instantly sculpted, contoured look

* Lifts, tightens and deeply hydrates

* Increases skin density

* Rebuilds collagen and elastin

* Visibly reduces expression line and wrinkles

* Provides anti-oxidant protection

* Lightweight and oil-free

Key Ingredients:

* Proprietary “lift & contour” complex (oat-algae extract blend + bamboo-pea extract blend) triggers immediate tightening effect as it stimulates collagen and elastin production

* Hyaluronic Acid “dense hydration” blend hydrates and plumps from the inside out as it forms a moisture barrier

* Copper Tripeptide firms and protects from damaging free radicals

* AHA (Lactic + Glycolic) blend stimulates cell renewal allowing key actives to penetrate deeper

Directions:

* Apply in the AM & PM by gently blending into skin and massaging in an upward motion to help further defy gravity

Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Youth Activating Oil

PureTruthwithOil

I have always shied away from using oil on my face. With combination, blemish prone skin the thought of putting oil on my face was a bit too scary.  I was sent  a sample of the Ole Henriksen pure truth youth activating oil serum. I have been recovering from pneumonia and my skin was not looking very great.  I decided to put on my big girl pants and try using oil, and am I ever glad I did.

The oil itself is really light and has a nice citrus scent. Once I apply it, the oil immediately absorbs and my face doesn’t feel greasy or icky. Within the first day my skin looked brighter!  Now I am on my third week of use and my fine lines are looking  better and my overall skin quality has really improved. Using the pure truth your activating oil actually moisturized my face better than cream and leaves it less oily throughout  the day.  I apply this in the morning and at night on my face neck and chest and my skin is feeling fantastic.

Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Youth Activating Oil
What it is:
A powerful activating oil infused with 100 percent pure organic rose hips seed oil, a natural source of active vitamin C, vitamin A, and essential fatty acids, to brighten, repair, and nourish while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

What it is formulated to do:
Luxurious and lightweight, this brightly citrus-scented potent antiaging treatment oil quickly absorbs and deeply penetrates to heal, nourish, and hydrate. Fine lines are visibly reduced and skin is immediately brighter and more radiant. Abundant with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, skin is defended from future damage and balanced—look forward to a brighter future daily.

What else you need to know:
Unprocessed to maintain the highest potency, rose hips oil is a single source of active vitamin A, vitamin C, and high levels of essential fatty acids.

In a consumer usage study:
