Review :: My Serum Treatment Empties

I just finished up 3 different serums, so I wanted to share with you my thoughts, results, and if I would buy again.

Shiseido ULTIMUNE Power Infusing Concentrate


This is supposed to have anti-aging and regenerative properties. You are also supposed to use this first to help your other serums work better.

I got 2 deluxe samples of this and just finished my second bottle. Overall it lasted me a month. I can definitely say that my skin felt smoother and felt healthier, but I didn’t see any difference when I used this. I am going to buy the 1 ounce bottle since I believe that would last me 2-3 months to really see how well this product works. I also really like the fresh light fragrance of it.

Grade – B

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum® Vitamin C Collagen Booster


Brightening serum rich in vitamin c. Supposed to help with fine lines, wrinkles, brighten your skin and boost collagen.

Ok, I have a love hate relationship with this product. I see almost instant results. (especially the next morning because I only use this at night) My skin feels firmer, healthier, and my fine lines started to disappear. PROBLEM is, like most Vitamin C products it really irritates my face. When I apply it my face gets beet red and can feel a little burny. But the results are so dang good! So I only use this at night. I already bought a replacement, because well, the stuff works. But if you have sensitive skin to be careful. This stuff may aggravate it.

Grade – B+

RADICAL Skincare Advanced Peptide Antioxidant Serum


This is an anti aging, and high in antioxidant serum.

I got this as a deluxe sample, and was able to use it for over a month. I can honestly say I saw absolutely no change. No bad reactions, no results of any kind. This formula did nothing for my skin. I will not be purchasing this. I am not saying if this is good or bad it just did nothing or me.

Grade – C


Those are my empties this go around!

Also the full size of Dr Brandt’s is nice, I have all but given up hope on the brand doing anything for my skin, so maybe this product will be a redemption for them. We will see!
