During my facial at Sephora (Read: Free Mini Facials @ Sephora) the skin specialist suggested that I switch products. Apparently, products become ineffective when used over a long period of time. Although this specific product was not recommended, I ran out of Murad’s Rapid Age Spot + Pigment Lightening Serum and figured it was the perfect opportunity to start my switch to Ole Henriksen products.

Details: “Look forward to a bright future—daily. Formulated with a proprietary five-source vitamin C complex to support natural collagen production, brighten, and minimize fine lines, this must-have serum defends from environmental aggressors and free radical damage, leaving skin healthy and protected. It is enriched with green tea extract and sodium hyaluronate to nurture and nourish. This lightweight and oil-free formula quickly absorbs into skin while the iconic uplifting citrus scent pampers your skin and your senses.” Source: Sephora

I went back and forth between this and Murad’s serum for about 10 minutes.  There seemed to be more benefits associated with Murad’s product.  I was hoping an associate, consultant or whatever you call them would come over to assist me but NOPE *rolls eyes* Moreover, I found consolation in this product being among the top brightening serums and the cheapest of the bunch.

I haven’t been able to determine its effectiveness since I’ve been using it for just a few days but I can tell you one thing, it STINKS!  It smells like orange-flavored cough syrup. Ole Henriksen’s Truth Serum Collagen Booster retails for 48 bucks and can be found at Sephora.

Side note: I will be buying the recommended products over time and as I finish my current skincare products.  I am not about to drop a few hundreds at one time.  However, I have a birthday wish list that I texted to my family and got no response -_- lol

I am 90% done with the new site: Although I will continue to have a presence on Blogger, it will no longer be my main blog *insert tears here* Till then, you know I need friends so like Pink Gumbeaux on Facebook and follow me on Twitter and Instagram. And, check out my last blog post: Maze Runner: Bore Trials.

Don’t forget to share with friends 🙂
