Wondering how to choose the bestface serum? We got you.

Whether you’re starting a new skincare routine or have a pretty good idea of what the right skincare routine for you looks like, face serums are usually a point of confusion. But don’t worry, we’re going to break it down for you.

Face serums may be considered extra credit for skincare newbies, but they are a great way to introduce additional skincare benefits to any routine. According to Ole’s Glow Cycle, every skincare routine should feature a vitamin-C-based product in the morning and a chemical exfoliant-based one in the evening. We recommend applying your serum after cleansing and toning but before your face moisturizer. In our opinion, the best face serum strategy is to use at least one to brighten in the morning and at least one to renew at night, so you’re tackling your skin concerns around the clock.

Take it from Ole himself -“Healthy skin is happy skin!” Read on to learn how face serums work and what they can do to enhance your routine (and results).



Glow bananas

Tell dullness to bounce with this powerhouse serum. Banana Bright Vitamin C Serum is our #1 vitamin C serum, created for skincare users that are looking to advance their brightening routine. It contains Ole’s highest concentration of vitamin C for daily use. It combines three Ole Glow® icons—vitamin C, exfoliating acids and banana powder-inspired pigments—to help instantly brighten, firm, reduce the look of dark spots, pores and wrinkles and defend skin against pollution, while delivering a sensorial experience you’ll love. And, this vitamin c and hyaluronic acid serum helps reinforce skin’s moisture barrier.

The results speak for themselves. People see brighter, bouncier skin in 7 days, with 94% of people feeling firmer skin over time*. This OLEHENRIKSEN bestseller also visibly fades dark spots over time, with instant brightening benefits.

C brighter, firmer, better skin

Truth Serum is our iconic OG vitamin C serum, and with good reason. Created by Ole in the 80’s, it revolutionized access to brightening products and made it even easier to maintain glowing results between trips to his spa in Beverly Hills. Truth Serum is one of Ole’s first formulas, loved by celebrities for decades, and remains our best face serum for brightening, firming and all-day hydration.

It’s different from Banana Bright Vitamin C Serum in that itis more a more universal level of vitamin C. It is an excellent "gateway” into vitamin C serums and getting to know how your skin responds. Like a daily multivitamin for your skin, itsmade with our True-C Complex™ and boosted with collagen. Its silky texture and energizing citrus scent creates an addictively indulgent experience.

If you are someone who likes layering serums, we recommend applying Truth Serum before Glow Cycle.

Results without the retinol

Glow Cycle Retin-ALT Power Serum is like the kitchen sink of age-fighting skincare–so many powerhouse ingredients ready to get to work! It’s made with bakuchiol, a natural, plant-based retinol alternative, and targets fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots and pores. Plus, with AHAs and Edelweiss stem cell, it helps firm the skin. Glow Cycle was made to be used during the day, and its pearlized lavender tint instantly brightens and helps create a glowing canvas for makeup.

Layer this over Truth Serum in the morning to lock in the benefits of both products. At night, we recommend pairing it with Goodnight Glow Retin-ALT Sleeping Crème (we call them the Power Duo for a reason).

Hello results, goodbye retinol!
