    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 bakuchiol serum, powered with AHAs and bakuchiol—a plant-based 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 bakuchiol 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®!

  • 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Allergic Reaction for the First Time!! When I received this in the mail i was so excited to try it. Because i wanted to even my skintone and work on my skin for my wedding day. I put it on and next day i woke up with my face and neck red and with tiny bumps. I don’t have sensitive skin and NEVER had a reaction before to any products. But this did it! I have a week already with this rash, and it burns and itches like crazy. Already took meds prescribed by my doctor and ive seen some improvement but still bad on my neck. I really hope it is gone soon because I don’t want to be looking like this on my WEDDING DAY, which is ONE MONTH AWAY. Im praying. Before using this product please test it on a small patch of skin first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great serum. This serum is absolutely wonderful. My face feels refreshed, the serum smells too good (due to all of the floral products that they have grounded up and put in it), and it makes me feel like my skin feels like it is staying tight throughout my daily routine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Yet to find it's value I was researching for a retinol alternative and found this product which would be similar to a product that I wanted which was discontinued by the other skincare brand but I'm yet to find if this product actually works since it's been only three weeks into using this serum. Overall, I like the smell and consistency. Can feel somewhat drying or maybe there's tiny grains of something when applying. Is it worth the price? I doubt so.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Turns my face reddish purple I used to like this moisturizer but recently its turning my face shades of purple & red. it's the same bottle i purchased a few months ago so I'm not sure if the ingredients settle with's not even 6 months old so who knows.... I even use less and less each time but i still get that tint and i can't even cover my entire face with it or else I'd look like a clown.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really liked this serum I initially tried this as a sample, and immediately fell in love. Made my very dry skin feel plump and moisturized. I have dull looking skin and this makes me glow! I used with the Night Retin-Alt cream and that was a bit much, the next day my skin looked great but felt very taut. At first I thought wow face lift but then it was bit uncomfortable. I now alternate between the serum and night cream, rather than together. I would highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm in love Sephora gifted me the power duo which was this day serum and the night cream as a pair, for sample sizes they lasted me a little over a month and my skin looked soooo good. I love this product especially because I've been not using cover up as much this year and it makes my natural skin look glowy and awake. I read other reviews about how they didn't see a difference but honestly everyone has different skin types. I'm a combo skin/ dry and this product gives me life! (And the night cream).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a fan Very watery and. Turns my face a silver/purple color from all the unnecessary ingredients. Not sure if I’m seeing results but I am seeing the color come off all over my white pillows in the morning. Love all of your other products though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money I used most of the products and it never bothered me but this serum is the worst. It has my skin looking like someone smeared chalk on my face.
