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.

    • 15% Vitamin C

    • 5% PHAs (Polyhydroxy Acids)

    • Hyaluronic Acid

      Helps plump skin’s surface with hydration and reinforce skin’s moisture barrier.

    • Banana Powder-Inspired Pigments

      Instantly illuminates and color corrects.

    • Vitamin E

  • Inspiration

    Ole has been changing the skincare game since the beginning—he was a pioneer in bringing vitamin C to the skincare world and pushed boundaries when he brought makeup artist secret “banana powder” to our daily routines. Now, he’s combining those tried-and-true brighteners with more essentials for glowing skin—skin-smoothing PHAs and hydration-boosting hyaluronic acid—to create the ultimate multi-acid serum. This serum contains our highest concentration of vitamin C for daily use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glowing! I'm onto my second bottle of this after purchasing my first during the summer. My skin has such a noticeable shine to it and haven't experienced any allergic reaction, which is my usual issue with skincare. I did put it too close to the corners of my lips and got little sores once, but that was careless application. Otherwise, I'm recommending it to everyone!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the best and misleading packaging I needed a serum and I like the smell of this one so I purchased. I didn’t notice any results after using for a month but continued to use it to give it some time. Shortly after that, I thought that the pump had stopped working. I went to to ask their advice. The packaging doesn’t allow the pump to be opened. You simply cannot open it up to see what’s broken. I contacted olehenriksen and they were no help. SO GUESS WHAT!!! I forced open the top and the serum was all used. In 1 month the $65 serum was gone BUT because the pump has a weighted bottom, it gives the impression that there is a lot of product. I was fooled and olehenriksen doesn’t care and refused to refund. I will never buy anything from the company again!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible reaction Within an hour of applying this product, my face was red and swollen. By the next day, the swelling had increased and tiny blisters formed. The following day my face started peeling and continued being red, swollen and peeling for several days. I've never had such a bad reaction to any product, and I've tried many, many products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great glow I ordered this after using a sample. I use it every morning and love how it gives my skin a glow

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BUG MISTAKE I received this as a sample from Sephora. Felt great going on but by the end of the day my face had scattered dry patches and small red raised areas and it was painful. The next morning my face was still so dry and incredibly itchy. I don’t have very sensitive skin and I use vitamin c and retinol everyday and never had a reaction from either. I don’t know what is in this to cause this irritation, essentially a chemical burn but it’s awful. My skin that was perfect now looks destroyed. I honestly don’t know why and how this has such good reviews. Others have had the same experience and I’m so disappointed I didn’t look at the bad reviews first. If I had, I would’ve thrown this right in the garbage, where it belongs.
