Ole Henriksen: Glow Cycle Retin-ALT Power Serum:
🔮This product claims to use a natural retinol alternative to instantly brighten, target fine lines, wrinkles, and reduce the look of pores & dark spots. Moisturizes the skin without the harsh effects of retinol— like dryness and redness. Tailored towards maturing skin, but good for all skin types. If you have sensitive skin, gradually work up to daily application.
1. Bakuchiol: a plant-based retinol alternative that evens skin tone, smoothes fine lines and wrinkles.
2. Hibiscus flower extract: increases skin elasticity by preventing the breakdown of elastin.
🔮 Can be applied morning or night to face and neck in an upward motion. Apply after Ole Henriksen’s Truth Serum in the morning or before the Goodnight Glow Sleeping Crème.
❗️Sun Alert: wear a sunscreen of at least SPF 30 while using this product, may cause excess sun sensitivity or even sunburn.
🔮This product has a strong scent that smells like lemonade. It smells like lemon Skittles to me! It’s very potent so if your skin is sensitive to smell, stay clear.
🐰 Ole Henriksen is a cruelty-free brand!
✨My Review: For some reason, the first time I wore this, I had some sort of reaction. It made (only) my neck turn bright red and my neck became extremely itchy (swipe to see reaction) but my face was completely fine. I had to wash it off right away! The next day, I totally forgot this happened and applied it to my face and neck again. That time, no reaction so I’m not exactly sure what happened but I gave this a second chance because I’m such an #OleFan
. This product brightens instantly because it has a pretty lavender color and has a little shimmer. If you understand color correcting, lavender brightens dull skin. This is a great product to use under makeup for extra glow! I don’t have many fine lines so I can’t currently back up its claims of smoothing those but it has helped with my dark spots for sure! When I use this my skin looks brighter, more even and glows! Despite my previous, one-time reaction, I can’t complain about it one bit and it is a staple in my current skin care routine! As always, the #Oleglow
is strong with this one 👍!
