I’m going to cover a very popular product produced my and brand that’s well-known all over the globe. That’s right, I’m referring to Ole Henriksen. For those of you not familiar with this brand, it’s a company that’s been named after it’s creator, Ole Henriksen. Those that have had the pleasure of meeting Ole Henriksen say that he’s very kind and they also say that his products are some of the best in the industry. After all, it’s not easy to become the best selling serum on Sephora. Heck, if Justin Bieber uses this skin care line, then it’s gotta be somewhat decent! I’m going to share the most neutral and unbiased review possible of the Total Truth Eye Creme.
Facts About Ole Henriksen Total Truth Eye Creme
To kick things off, Ole has specifically included the use of Omega 3 extracts to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines and just better hydrate your skin overall.
Similar to other eye creams that are available on the market today, this one comes equipped with SPF 15, an essential to youthful looking skin. Actually, now that I think of it, if you’re using an eye cream that doesn’t contain SPF 15 (at a minimum) then you’re doing your skin a huge injustice. Most popular eye creams today incorporate the use of SPF in order to reduce the build up of free radicals within your skin.
This product also contains peptides and Micro Algae, both of which I’ve mentioned in other tried and true skin care products on the market today. Peptides are the building blocks of protein which help improve elasticity, collagen, and more.
While the Ole Henriksen, products in general, have a pretty high rating across the board, this particular product seems to be viewed as just average by consumers. That’s not to say that it’s not a good product. I’m merely sharing what I’ve learned after doing some research on the Internet. What I can tell you is that there aren’t that many 5 star ratings for this product. Less than a dozen of them even exist on the company website. That’s a bit of a red flag to me right there. If you do some more browsing around you’ll notice that on Amazon, this product is showing with only 1 review and it’s a 3-star review. See below for the actual screenshot of what was indexed in the search results. Not a good sign, but then again, it was only one review.
According to the manufacturer, the product is jam packed with nutrients. The problem is that some of the consumers that purchased this product feel that the abundance of nutrients are not enough reason to continue use. Some users have complained that the product itself is too heavy, which is exactly why many avoid applying it in the morning. They complained about the consistency stating that it was just too thick for them. Putting the mixed reviews aside, I’ll continue to share some basic product information with you, starting with application technique.
Most people that use this product, do so on a daily basis. Many even apply it twice daily. However, those that choose to use it once per day tend to apply it in the evening versus first thing in the morning.
One good thing that I can say about this eye creme is that it doesn’t contain many of the bad ingredients that most products do today. For example, you will not find any parabens, sulfates, synthetic dyes or fragrances, or petrochemicals. These are all common ingredients that are incorporated into mass-produced products and they are used to help preserve or increase the product shelf life. They offer very little in terms of personal skin improvement.
Ingredients included in the formula are the Omega 3 Happiness Concentrate. That’s a concentrate that’s supposed to improve circulation and reduce the presence of dark circles underneath your eyes. You know, the most common issue that we have when it comes to eye treatment!
It also contains a peptide called tripeptide-5. What this does is it helps further stimulate collagen synthesis. You want to have a strong presence of collagen in order to help reduce or better yet, eliminate any lines or wrinkles that might exist around your eyes. Last but not least, a Micro Algae is included to help firm up the skin and encourage the production of collagen.
Those ingredients that I’ve just mentioned are all proprietary blends or those formulated specifically for this product. I must also mention that the active ingredients of this eye creme are Avobenzone, Octinoxate, and Octisalate. I’ve shared some information on each of these ingredients. If you’re interested in learning more about them, then I suggest you take a look around. the site.
How To Apply
This eye creme is very easy to use. All you need to do apply a small amount of creme under your eyes by applying the creme on starting from the middle of your face and out to your temples. Be very careful not to get any of this in your eye.
Where To Buy
If you’re still interested in purchasing this product, you can do so by visiting Amazon.com or simply visiting the company website. They sell the product in 0.5oz jars. You’ll probably find the product available at a price point of $40 on average. It contains SPF and does moisturize your skin so it’s not completely out of the question.
If you’re still skeptical after reading this review then I can only suggest that you speak with your dermatologist. You can’t just speak with any dermatologist, you need to speak with one that you see on a regular basis. it does make a difference.
