BRIGHTNESS IN A BOTTLE | truth serum collagen booster

Here at OLEHENRIKSEN, we think of our truth serum collagen booster as your skin’s ultimate daily vitamin. Packed with essentials that your skin craves, this light-weight potent serum replenishes what’s lost in life’s daily wear and tear.

As a Sephora best-selling anti-aging serum, it delivers that sought after Ole glow and is definitely worthy of daily use. Check out the ingredients that make this anti-ager a true wonder and brightness in a bottle:

Vitamin C is the real star of the truth serum — and many other OLEHENRIKSEN products! Ole developed his revolutionary 5-C Complex to harness the power of Vitamin C and effectively repair, protect and nourish delicate skin. Over 75% of the skin is composed of the protein collagen and as we age, collagen levels begin to drop. Truth serum collagen booster protects the skin and boosts collagen production to keep skin looking smooth, bright and youthful.

In addition to Vitamin C, our serum is infused with green tea extract and rosehips extract to soothe inflammation, fade dark spots and heal post-breakout scars. It also contains sodium hyaluronate to lock in moisture and Vitamin E to treat wrinkles by activating new skin cell growth and boosting cell regeneration.

Pick up our truth serum collagen booster if you’re after an aromatic, anti-aging serum with long term results. Be sure to follow daily application with a moisturizer with SPF protection. We recommend truth revealed super crème SPF 15 or perfect truth cc crème SPF 30.

Key Ingredient Benefits:

  • Vitamin C: Shields skin from free radicals and boosts collagen production. Reduces inflammation and irritation. Fades post breakout red marks.
  • Green tea extract: Protects against damaging effects of free radicals. Anti-inflammatory and reduces UV damage.
  • Rosehips extract: Full of vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids that are known to correct dark spots and hydrate dry, itchy skin. Reduces scars and fine lines.
  • Sodium hyaluronate: Retains moisture to make skin look full and plump.
  • Vitamin E: Boosts collagen production. Treats wrinkles by supporting new skin cell growth and speeding up regeneration.

THE SKINNY ON OUR BESTSELLING CLEANSER african red tea foaming cleanser

Here at OLEHENRIKSEN, a freshly cleansed face is always the first step. With endless options to choose from, it can be difficult to find just the right fit. With that in mind we wanted to share what makes our african red tea foaming cleanser a bestseller year after year. Here’s the lowdown on what makes this cleanser a beloved favorite and definitely worth a try:

Named best natural cleanser at the Natural Health Beauty Awards, the benefits of this cleanser far exceed a deeply cleansed face. Packed with anti-oxidants and African red tea (a heavy duty skin strengthener) to soothe irritation and boost collagen production, this cleanser packs an anti-aging punch worth repeating twice daily. Also generously spiked with borage seed oil (derived from borage flowers and seeds), this cleanser works as an astringent and hydrator to promote elasticity and leave skin fresh and cushioned never dry.

For that perfect glow, we’ve also included skin superstar and Ole’s personal favorite, vitamin C. From brightening and firming to boosting collagen production and reducing inflammation, vitamin C does it all. This powerhouse cleanser is also formulated without parabens, sulfates or phthalates so you can rest assured that you are using only the highest quality cleanser in your skincare regimen.

Pick up our african red tea foaming cleanser if you are looking for a gentle yet effective anti-aging cleanser to use morning and night. Follow with our truth serum collagen booster for truly pampered skin.

Key Ingredient Benefits:

  • African red tea: Youth-restoring antioxidant to strengthen skin, slow the aging process and soothe skin. Learn more at here.
  • Borage seed oil: An essential fatty acid that hydrates and soothes. Leaves skin nourished and reduces inflammation.
  • Vitamin C: Brightens and firms. Stimulates collagen synthesis and fights environmental damage, increases collagen production and reduces inflammation.
  • Grapefruit, orange and tangerine extracts: Purifies and brightens with astringent, antiseptic and aromatic qualities.

Sunless Tan Prep: Ole’s Homemade Beach Body Scrub

Here at OLEHENRIKSEN protecting your skin from damaging and aging

UV rays is a top priority, but that doesn’t mean you can’t fake a natural-looking sun-kissed look with an expertly applied sunless tanner. For an even application, prep your skin to smooth perfection with Ole’s sensorial Eucalyptus and Coffee infused body scrub. Follow with your favorite sunless tanner.

Indulge your senses and get glowing guilt-free!

Ole’s Homemade Beach Body Scrub Recipe

Makes 1.5 cups (approximately 3 treatments)


  • ½ cup of finely grained sea salt
  • ½ cup of finely ground coffee
  • ¼ cup of sesame oil
  • ½ TSP of eucalyptus essential oil


  1. Mix together all ingredients in a small bowl: salt, coffee ground, sesame oil and eucalyptus oil.
  2. Massage mixture into damp skin, in semicircular movements, then rinse well. We recommend using this scrub in the shower, facing away from the running water.
  3. Left over scrub can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for your next home spa experience. Use this scrub 3-4 times a week for radiant, glowing skin year-round.



Coffee tightens pores, removes dead skin cells, and holds a number of anti-wrinkle properties. For these benefits, coffee is commonly used in luxury beauty products and spa therapies to make skin look and feel younger.


Sea salt is also a common ingredient in spa remedies; it contains a number of vitamins and antioxidants that will leave your skin fresh and smooth.


Sesame oil is an important ingredient in home remedy scrubs because it nourishes and softens the skin while the eucalyptus oil purifies and oxygenates.

Tea Time with Ole: Home Spa Recipe Healing Ice Cube Facial Treatment

Since the beginning, Ole Henriksen has sought out the most efficacious botanicals for his skincare products. Testing all ingredients at home and in his spa, Ole’s home recipes inspire his skin care lines helping him to combine the best of nature with science. Try this recipe at home for a sensorial skin treat that will leave you glowing!

1. Ice cube tray
2. Chamomile Tea (calm soothe) or Rooibos Tea (anti-aging/brightening)
3. Handkerchief


  1. Select Chamomile Tea or Rooibos Tea. Make a strong batch of tea with your selection.
  2. Fill your ice cube tray with tea and freeze.
  3. Once frozen, take one ice cube out and wrap in a handkerchief (to prevent cold hands). Allow ice cube to melt slightly so that tea seeps through the cloth.
  4. Massage your entire jaw line, cheeks, eyes and forehead for a few minutes.
  5. Follow with Truth Serum Collagen Booster and your favorite OLEHENRIKSEN moisturizer.

Innately instilled with healing anti-oxidants, Chamomile Tea calms and soothes even the most sensitive skin, lightens discoloration and helps heal skin irritations. Chamomile is Ole’s inspiration and key ingredient in his chamomile comfort mask, step 3 of his most popular spa treatment the POWERpeel.

Rooibos Tea is a red tea indigenous to South Africa. Loaded with anti-oxidants, alpha hydroxyl acid and zinc, Rooibos Tea works to smooth skin texture, brighten and slow the aging process. Rooibos Tea is Ole’s inspiration and key ingredient in his bestselling african red tea foaming cleanser.

  We caught up with Ole Henriksen for his natural secret on how to fake awake for those days when a good night’s sleep seems like a faraway dream. This easy at-home remedy is part of every OLEHENRIKSEN complexion treatment at theOLEHENRIKSEN Spa in Beverly Hills — a truly relaxing and invigorating treatment to de-puff and brighten your fatigued eyes. All you’ll need is two simple ingredients to achieve a more rested look.


  • Half A Cucumber
  • Gauze or cheese cloth

Start by grating the cucumber. This releases the Caffeic Acid, which will reduce swelling in the eye region. Place the shredded cucumber in the center of gauze or cheese cloth and roll into a sushi-like roll. Rest the sushi roll over your eyes and leave in place for at least 10 minutes.

For a complete home spa ritual, Ole recommends using his hydrating lavender infused Blue/Black Berry Enzyme Mask while the cucumber sushi roll is in place. Take this time to lay on your back on a cushioned carpet with a nice pillow under your head and drift off into meditation while this deeply relaxing mask exfoliates your skin and the cucumber roll brightens and tightens the eye region. Follow with Ultimate Lift Eye Gel to seal in all the benefits from the cucumber booster treatment, leaving you with a fresh, radiant glow!
