Ole Henricksen Truth Eye Peel
Dry and flaky undereyes
were a new problem for me.
This tiny yet expensive tube,
with a fancy name I didn’t know
was a gift from family.
An eye gel packed with vitamin c,
algae, rice bran protein, AHA’s too.
“Truth” seemed too good to be true.
I dabbed it on carefully
both day and night.
The dry patches faded
but otherwise my skin
stayed just the same, just all right.
My dark circles stayed,
and then I started to wonder.
Were my eyes actually dry
or was it concealer ill-applied,
ill-removed? A rookie girl’s blunder.
No changes still, for better or worse,
yet diligently I finished the tube.
I’m certain now
that the dryness was my fault,
And unsurprised that Ole’s “truth” is discontinued
