Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster

It really surprised me how long a 3.75mL/0.13fl. oz. dropper bottle of Vivierskin C E Peptides lasted, from mid June up until last week! I was using it as instructed, 3 drops per use, though I only use it daily in the morning.

Anyway, now I've moved on to a 15mL/0.5fl. oz. pump bottle of Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster from the All Four Love Set. From the same set I've already reviewed the African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser and the Sheer Transformation Face Creme.

Again I only use this serum daily in the morning, and only one pump per use too so it'll probably last me a couple of months at least. This is a viscous gel with a sweet vitamin-C-chewable scent, a little too sweet for me in fact. Add in the fact that it's orange and my morning routine becomes a little disconcerting, as if I'm spreading orange syrup all over my face. And oh, it's a bit sticky upon application too, which totally doesn't help the syrupy feel. Good thing it does absorb completely.

That said, I had to learn the hard way *not* apply it too close to my eyes. Because by the end of the day my oily lids bled this stuff and stung my eyes so badly I had to go rinse them out with warm water. Ouch. Other than the stinging, I don't notice any brightening or reduced lines and wrinkles either, though I can't really blame the serum in this instance. My little punkin is teething and between his crying bouts, the poor thing, my face is definitely not "brightening" and I'm definitely getting more lines and wrinkles =.=

Yeah the serum did zilch on me too...Now I have tried three vitamin c serum from sephora so far. Ole Henriksen only made my face tacky, Dr Dennis Gross was way too potent (irritates) and Korres wild rose oil also didnt do anything...Better stick to Asian brands I guess?

Hey Mina,

Honestly, I'm slathering on lotion just to keep from turning into a shriveled up mummy by the end of each day, so it could promise me the sun and the moon and I wouldn't notice ^.^" Ha.
