Second Skin

Whoever came up with the name Pure Truth Youth Activating Oil was practically begging for a skeptical response. But breathless marketing aside, Ole Henriksen’s most recent anti-aging product has a lot going for it. Ideal for cold weather, when skin tends to be especially dry, it’s formulated to brighten skin tone while minimizing flaws on the face and neck. The key ingredient is concentrated rose hip seed oil, a natural source of vitamins A, C and E (antioxidants that work together to reduce skin damage and promote cell growth) as well as essential fatty acids. Although the oil works on its own, you can go for broke and layer it over Ole Henriksen’s popular Truth Serum Vitamin C Collagen Booster. Some users object to the newer product’s less-than-subtle citrus scent, but that’s a matter of taste. When it comes to practical application, there’s a clear consensus: Pure Truth Youth Activating Oil is the real deal. — Lola Ehrlich and John Birmingham
