In Love With: Ole Henriksen’s Banana Bright serum is like Botox in a bottle

Melissa Carton

This is a skincare must have!

Being in my early 30s the thing I look for most in a good serum is how hydrated it makes my skin look and feel.

If it makes my skin more firm and blurs the fine lines too, that is also a plus.

I’ve tried a lot of different skin care products that I’ve heard people rave about and some have been worth the hype, while others haven’t.

One product that I started using last month that I will absolutely be buying again though is the Ole Henriksen Banana Bright Vitamin C serum because honestly, it’s Botox in a bottle.

The Ole Henriksen Banana Bright serum has all the good stuff in it including 15 per cent Vitamin C, five per cent PHAs and hyaluronic acid.

It smells really fruity and refreshing so I usually use it first time in the morning as it’s just one of those scents that makes you feel more awake.


One thing you’ll notice if you decide to give the Banana Bright serum a try is how quickly you can feel it start to firm your skin.

It just instantly makes your skin feel tighter and more lifted, while also giving your skin a dewy glow.

I’ve been using it for over a month now and while I used to rush for my concealer almost everyday to get rid of redness or under eye circles, I’ve noticed a huge improvement in the quality of my skin.

Given that I’ve been in lockdown homeschooling for the better part of a year at this stage I’d say my face is looking pretty fresh and awake (even if I’m not feeling very awake).

The Banana Bright serum is quite a rich and creamy consistency and personally I think it’s probably going to be too heavy if you’re in your early 20s, but for late 20s and upwards this is definitely a must have.

I haven’t found any other serum that has given my skin the same glow as this.

Boots currently stock it for €69 and while it’s not cheap it really works and to be honest a really good skin product is always a good investment.
