This product totally blows. It isn't a very great moisturizer, just kind of "there". I didn't notice any changes or benefits from using this product (and I used it in conjunction with the serum for abt 3 months) and I feel it was a total waste of money. Oh, and did I mention its scented way too much = irritating to the skin? Don't bother with this one, it's not worth it.

This came in a pack with eye cream and serum. I have liked every product from this line. It doesn't offer SPF so I decided to wear it at night. I put on vitamin E oil, which is very sticky, and then go over it with this one. In the morning my skin feels really soft.

This does moisturize and make my skin look better.

However it's too expensive for the results I'm getting... also feels like it loses potency over time... probably because it has vit c as the active ingredient and has a CLEAR JAR that has a wide mouth that you DIP your fingers in ... vit c degrades with air and light exposure.

I find this with all Ole Henrikson products... the right ingredients that ultimately fails from the poor packaging because whomever designed it, didn't have enough chemistry knowledge about the ingredients.

What hydration? should be the name of this product. I have oily skin and this left my skin feeling dry. I definitely need more moisture in my moisturizer. Maybe for those with really oily skin this would work, but I did not find this product to be overly impressive, especially for the price point. Additionally, if you want to wear this during the day, you need to layer sun protection over this product, which means you need to spend more money just to make this doable. At least this did not irritate my skin.

I currently use and love OH's Sheer Transformation, so I was excited to try my sample of Truth Creme. TC has a liquidy, serum-like consistency but it moisturizes really well. I woke up to super smooth and soft skin. However, the scent is pretty gnarly and smells like rotten oranges, so I would not use this in the morning under my makeup, although the consistency definitely works if you want to layer products. I was not a fan of any of OH's Orange scented products, including the vitamin c serum which is very popular, but I think the scent of the TC is different and worse.

The scent is quite off-putting. The creme itself is just okay. It is hydrating but somewhat greasy. I bought the small jar of this in a set on boxing day at Sephora. I would not purchase the full-sized product. I don't feel this is the proper product for my combination, dehydrated skin and do not feel it is worth the price. I would purchase the serum in lieu.

I got a sample of this in my Ipsy bag. It moisterized moderatly well and didn't break me out but I just can't get past the terrible smell. It smells like rotten citrus to me. Overall, for the price it's not worth it.

I feel kind of bad writing this review for 2 reasons, 1. I love Ole's Truth Serum, and 2. I only used the moisturizer two times ( I received it as a sample). I don't normally have such a strong reaction to product, but as soon as I put it on my face I was grossed out. The smell is so bad my dog was literally sneezing when I walked by him( he has a very sensitive nose), and the smell lasted forever. The consistency felt sticky and overall not good!!

This face cream works great for my sensitive skin. Calms it down, makes it look clear. I like the slight citrus scent. It absorbs immediately; will definitively buy again.

Wow, I'm really surprised at all the bad reviews on this. I'm glad I didn't read them before giving this a try. I have incredibly sensitive and reactive skin, if it doesn't cause a rash, it will cause a breakout, usually both at once. This is the first moisturizer I've tried that didn't do either AND still moisturized and calmed my combo/dehydrated skin.

The smell... I'm thinking many reviewers got old or bad product. Mine smells like orange cream. It can be a little overwhelming, especially at first but I don't think it smells bad and once applied the scent fades within minutes.
I do hate the stupid jar though. I depot 1/3 of it at a time into a small container and store the remainder in a closet but I would much rather see this in a pump bottle.

This, along with The Body Shop Vitamin C Microdermabrasion and oil cleansing, have saved my skin this winter.
