Ole was inspired by the dramatic age-fighting benefits retinol delivers, but wanted to find a natural alternative. He selected bakuchiol, derived from the Ayurvedic babchi herb, after learning that it delivers retinol-like youth-boosting benefits—and is suitable for use during the day. This serum’s skin-brightening lavender tint is inspired by the babchi plant’s delicate flowers.Glow Cycle™ Retin-ALT Power Serum is rated out of 5 by 850.Rated 5 out of 5 by Maria27 from Done Looking - Everything I ever wanted! I have pores, texture, oily skin with dry patches, and breakout every now and then. I have always jumped from one moisturizer to another with no luck as I felt they would just sit on my skin without doing anything and making a lot more oily. I considered this product, both the serum and sleeping crème because of my favorite youtuber. However, based on reviews, I was a little hesitant because of the allergic reactions and breakouts, but I decided to buy it and give it a try. I can say that I am really happy because I found this decision to be the best I have ever made, skincare wise. I have always wanted a glowing face not an oily one. Both of these products have done that, my face is brighter, my pores are getting smaller, discoloration is going away, and most importantly, I have the OleGlow and not a greaseball of a face. Now, I am trying the banana brightening eye crème and the truth serum and I couldn't be happier, totally recommend!Date published: 2018-12-14Rated 1 out of 5 by Candayce from Bad Allergic Reaction!!! I received a complimentary sample of the Glow Cycle Retin-Alt Power Serum. I have no known skin allergies or sensitive skin; however, I developed a severe itchy, red rash within 24 hours of applying the product to my neck and face. So far it’s been about 5 days since I’ve used the product and the rash is still present on a significant portion of my face and neck. I would not recommend this product to anyone!Date published: 2018-12-11Rated 1 out of 5 by Anna M from Severe allergic reaction - ended up in hospital I recieved a sample of this whilst shopping other skin care products. After two hours of applying the serum, my face and neck started to itch, then became red and really hot, then began to swell up. After 8 hours my face was unrecognizable, eyelids completely swollen (I did not apply any serum on the eye area of course), lips and throat swollen. Full on angiooedema. My face was hurting so bad I had to go to the emergency room where I was treated with steroids and anti-histamines. Three days later, my face is still red, itchy and swollen. Hopefully, a one week prednisone treatment will calm it down.Date published: 2018-12-04Rated 1 out of 5 by Mandy1991 from Broke me about! I purchased this a few weeks ago from Sephora and have had to stop using it completely. It broke me out like no other product i have used before. I do not have sensitive skin and have never had reactions from products before so was very disappointed with what this did to my skin. It gave me the most horribly tiny under the skin bumps all over my face that made my face so red and sore. I had to stop using it and it took a week for my face to calm down. I had made no other changes to my usual routine so it had to be this product. Totally horrible, would not recommend to anyone.Date published: 2018-11-12Rated 5 out of 5 by MM2004 from My skin loves me for this! I have been using Ole Henrikson products for about 6 years but this serum is a game changer now that I'm 50. i love it!!! I only wish I would’ve discovered this in my 20’s!Date published: 2018-11-02Rated 5 out of 5 by Jocelyn35 from Best serum ever! I been using Ole Hendriksen products since April 2018 and i love it... now this New serum been using for Almost 2 months and its amazing. I had problems of my face ever since with my oily skin that cause acne that leave scars and dullness but now it starts fading. It's anti_aging really!!!Date published: 2018-11-01Rated 1 out of 5 by MyFaceHurtsNow from Allergic Reaction I received a complimentary sample of the Glow Cycle Retin-Alt power serum. Not having sensitive skin or any known topical allergies, I didn’t think anything of trying the sample out. Within 24 hours of applying my neck and face had turned bright red and within another 12 hours my face was swollen. Almost 5 days after testing this product out, my face and neck are almost scaly to the touch. As someone who has gone 26 years without a reaction like this to a face product and does not have sensitive skin, I strongly recommend testing this product on a smaller patch of skin before sacrificing your face and risking having to take off work to sit at home with ice packs on your face.Date published: 2018-10-19Rated 5 out of 5 by TinaD from Totally love! I received this product complimentary for review purposes. I totally love Ole’s products and this one definitely did not disappoint. After using the serum for a week, I did notice the fine lines around my mouth and crows feet at the corner of my eyes were less visible. I was so impressed that I did purchase the Sleep Creme as well. Paired together, I don’t think my face has been so soft and glowy. Hopefully, these two products can combat the dryness the colder weather usually does to my skin.Date published: 2018-10-01
