OLEHENRIKSEN Banana Bright Serum Review
OLEHENRIKSEN is one of my favourite brands from Sephora. I have tried quite a few products from them and I am truly impressed; from the packaging to the ingredients used, you can definitely feel the quality and luxury. So, when Influenster sent me their Banana Bright Serum to review, I did a secret happy dance to finally be able to try another line. If not for the price, I will definitely complete OLEHENRIKSEN set, but for now, I am just contented to be able to try and review their products.
Description: A powerful age-defying serum—with 15 percent vitamin C, five percent PHAs, and hyaluronic acid—that instantly brightens, visibly firms, plumps skin with hydration, and reduces the appearance of dark spots, pores, and wrinkles.
Skin Type: Normal, Dry, Combination, and Oily .
Verdict: First of all, it smells heavenly. If you are from Quebec and you are familiar with Orange Julep, that is how it smells. For people not from Quebec, it smells like an orange milkshake. I just can’t get enough it, it makes the routine more exciting.
Secondly, the packaging. I love how nicely the packaged it is and the product detail is readable. I am visual in choosing my beauty products and packaging really matters to me. So for the packaging alone, I am giving this a 10/10.
And finally the effect of the serum on my skin. I waited this long to post my review because I want to be able to try it for a month for me to see the effect since I have been using different serums for the past few months. The serum is lightweight, it doesn’t leave a sticky and tacky feeling after application and it absorbs fast. It does leave a glossy finish which is responsible for the brightening effect. Vitamin C and Hyaluronic acid are the ingredients that I am looking for in beauty products because of the benefits it gives my skin, so I am glad that it has that on top of being vegan, gluten, and cruelty-free. With the stress that I am under currently, my skin is extremely dehydrated and lacks moisture, but this product fixed that. After a month of use, my skin felt more hydrated, moisturized, plumper and bright.
Where to buy: OLEHENRIKSEN Banana Bright Vitamin C Serum is available in all Sephora branches and online.
