  • The Details

    Instantly brightens; target fine lines, wrinkles, pores and dark spots.

    Say “hello results, goodbye retinol” with bakuchiol, a plant-based retinol alternative.

    This groundbreaking age-defying serum, powered with AHAs and bakuchiol—a natural alternative to retinol— fights all major signs of aging and more. It targets fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots, firms and reduces the look of pores.

    Enriched with Edelweiss stem cell, a delicately beautiful and resilient flower that thrives in harsh conditions, this potent day serum also helps firm and improve elasticity. And, with hibiscus flower extract, it dramatically evens skin tone and texture.

    Plus, its lavender tint instantly brightens to awaken a fresher, more youthful-looking Ole Glow®!

    Directions: Apply evenly to face and neck daily. Gently massage in an upward, circular motion. In the morning, layer over Truth Serum. At night, pair with Goodnight Glow Retin-ALT Sleeping Crème. For external use only. Use as directed. Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn.

  • Inspiration

    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 4.5 out of 5 by 737.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it! This serum smells super pleasant and is easy to apply. Doesn’t leave a film and sinks right into your skin. Very similar to Becca first light priming filter in terms of color, texture and smell and wears just as well under make up! The only reason I gave it a 4 star is because I don’t notice much of a difference as far as how my pores look after using it as much as I do with the cold plunge mask. I received this product for free. However all opinions are my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I dig this Absolutely amazing serum!!!! I love using retinol and am so excited that there’s a natural alternative to retinol that I can use during the day. Where do I start?! The serum is a beautiful lavender color which is the natural color of the retinol alternative called bakuchiol. The smell is absolutely amazing and the serum easily glides on your face. It leaves your skin feeling baby soft, minimizes pores and wrinkles and leaves your skin glowy but not too glowy. The perfect step for creating a beautiful smooth canvas before makeup application. I’m in love!!! I received this complimentary product for review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and fast results This serum is a great product, that gives really good and fast results. It's also not harsh and a very gentle retinol product, that I can highly recommend. Retinol is the only proven ingredient that reverses skin aging signs. It's the best you can do as an anti aging step in your routine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best serum ever I've been using Ole Henriksen products for awhile now so I was excited to try the new Glow Cycle. It works wonders on large pores, skin texture, and best of all dark spots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goodbye large pores! This product has changed my life. My pores have always been large, although I continuously use skin care I never seem to find a product that gives me smooth flawless skin. I received this product complimentary through Influenster and although I was hesitant I was able to see a difference within a day. I used it at night and when I woke up my face felt smoother and it had a beautiful glow. I receive many products complimentary but I do not recommend them unless I truly believe in them. I will be purchasing this product once I run out!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure if it’s worth the money I keep seeing great reviews on this product but mainly from people who received the product for free, which makes me question them all. I have been using this serum for a month and have not seen anything major about it. The Ole Henriksen product hands down holy grail for me is Sheer Transformation so I’m using this with that cream, I can’t say I’ve seen a difference in anything. The Sheer Transformation alone smooths my skin, so I’m not sold on a repurchase of this product. I even had to come back on here to see what it is supposed to Target because I’m just not seeing it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glow First, I wanted to state that I did receive this product complimentary to try out. With that said, I believe that this product definitely leaves the skin glowing and helped even out the skin tone with continued use. I did enjoy that the color was purple but I don’t think it was necessary as the dye could cause issues with people who have more sensitive skin. All in all, this is a good serum and really does provide you that glow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Magical Unicorn Tear Serum This product is wonderful. I have been using it for a few weeks now and I have noticed a difference in my skin! My skin immediately glows when I apply the product but over time I have noticed my skin becoming more bright and smooth. So let’s talk about how amazing the serum smells and the color! The serum is purple and sparkly, which makes me feel like I’m putting magical unicorn tears on my face! (How luxurious, right!?) The sent is not overpowering but light and fresh. Once it is rubbed in the sent is not noticeable. It is also surprisingly hydrating for my skin. I struggle with dry skin, especially on my face. I was skeptical to switch moisturizer but have been surprisingly pleased with the hydrating effects of this product. Also, a small amount of this product goes a long way. One pump covers my entire face and neck. I would definitely recommend trying this product. Disclosure: I received this product complimentary for testing purposes and my review is my own.
