Ole Henriksen Truth Serum

RATING (out of 5 stars): 4 stars

COST: $48 for 1 ounce

THE SKINNY: I had no idea I needed this product (or that it even existed) until I tried it. Now I am hooked.

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum contains a bunch of vitamins C and E in a super-runny moisturizer that makes your skin look and feel fantastic. (My sensitive skin just soaked it right up.) Whether it is the vitamins or something else is up for debate but after just one application my skin had a great, fresher look to it.

But this is not what I would call an everyday product. It is super moisturizing. (Translation: Use it at home when you are not going out or wearing makeup because you will get a little bit of slickness.) 

I've been using it weekly and feel like that is probably enough although the directions say to apply mornings and evenings. (My skin can't take that much moisture.) The directions also say to follow with your normal moisturizer -- again, that would just be too much.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep. I love this sample (which came in my August Glossybox). I think the small bottle will last a while. (Thankfully, because it is expensive.)

CHECK IT OUT: You can find out more about Ole Henriksen Truth Serum and buy direct from the company. It gets super reviews on the Ole Henriksen site as well.
