Algenist Anti-Aging Skin Care 3-piece Discovery Kit
I've been in the market for the most effective anti aging cream I can find that takes the least amount of time to use daily since I don't have time to do a 5 plus step routine every day. Most recently I tried several of the Murad products with minimal success. I loved that this comes in a trial kit and have heard good things about Algenist, so I thought I'd give it a try. I've been using it for about 2 weeks and have found it to be a marginal improvement over the Murad products I tried. It does have an unusual smell but not enough to be bothersome. My skin has been softer and less dry, which I like, but I'm still on the fence about how well it does on my fine lines and wrinkles. At 40 something I still struggle with acne, and this product does not lead to any breakouts which is a large plus. While I'm not wowed at this point, I'm willing to continue using it until I finish the kit. My average rating was mostly due to my indecision about the fine lines and wrinkles, but I may need to use it longer to see more accurate results. I would say that this is a great way to try out the Algenist line.
This product delivers results. The lines on my forehead appear to have diminished to boot. The moisturizer is one of the few that I really like for it actually soaks into the skin, instead of just sitting on top of the skin. But the real winner in the kit is the eye cream. I am truly amazed at the results that I have seen over the last three weeks. I've used quite a few a eye creams in the past, and none delivered as well as this for me. Unfortunately, I have eye issues, so colleagues have noticed the change as well. Am I embarrassed by that? Not one bit. I'm glad that something is actually delivering for once. I ordered another set a few days ago and think that I may order another one real soon. Try it, you may as pleased as me.
Have been using this for a few weeks now and it does seem to be working. It soaks into the skin well so you know it is not just a surface product. I am not too big on the eye cream as it is a little too greasy and if used in the morning my eye liner was spread all over my face pretty quickly. The biggest issue I have is the smell is medicinal, maybe because they are not a beauty focused company. I am used to skin care having a pleasant smell. This is not bad, I just would not call it pleasant :) It is pricey you would think they could add a small amount of pleasing aroma to it, just saying.
I am 64, with pretty good skin that I do want to keep nice. I've been using this set for about 3 weeks, and what fine lines I had are completely gone. My skin feels so smooth and soft. A little does go a long way - so it's a good value for your money. If you're not expecting cosmetic surgery results, I think you'll be very pleased with these products.
Price is excellent. Felt great. I tried something else and will be back
THIS WORKS BEYOND WHAT YOU EXCPECT!
I was so happy I found a cream that works in two weeks! I have tried so many creams that didn't get me results. BUT this is amazing! I took before and after pictures. I had the darkest black eye circles and two weeks later they were gone! I was moving and looked so hagered and needed to try something new since what I was using stopped working. I actually got "carded" and was called "Miss" again. I am sold on this product and cant believe I found something that really, really, really works!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Not For Me
I gave this a 2 week trial and I'm afraid my fine lines aren't as fine as I'd like to believe they are. I plan to replace this product for another in the near future.
I gave it 4 stars for being easy to use, light feeling on skin, no strong scent and over all a nice product. I'm pushing 60 and this would be more of a preventive tool for someone starting to have fine lines appearing.
I tried but it has been sent back.
I agree this should be on auto-delivery. Much better sizes for traveling. As far as it working on a 66 year old face, WOW. Fine line and deep wrinkles much better and fading. Skin is soft and firm. And the best of all, these proudcts DO NOT make my puffy eyes worst which alot of products I've tried do. In fact, the puffy eyes seem to be not as puffy. A good thing!
these are three products i would like to use forever....they are expensive, so i hope i can afford it. it seems that you don't need to use much, as a little goes a looooong way. i'm seeing a difference after only 1 week, especially under my eyes. Yay!
I used it only on one hand for a week and it's an unbelievable difference. Of course I'm using it on my face too and my face looks way better too!
TURNS BACK TIME!!!!!!
I am 62 and have tried just about every skincare line on QVC and everywhere else, mainly trying to decrease my very deep nasolabial folds and loss of firmness. Some seemed to help a little, others not at all. In late January I decided to give this discovery kit a try, since I had tried everthing else. Well to my amazement within 2 weeks I first noticed my skin appeared firmer and was glowing, yes glowing!! I thought it was wishful thinking until my young grandaughter said one day, "Grandma your face looks so pretty" Then I noticed my nasolabial folds appeared to be decreasing, again thought I was wishing them away, until my younger sisters asked me if I had botox. My skin is not only firmer, but has a healthy glow is softer and those darn nasolabial folds have decreased tremendously!!! This serum has taken years off my face, I am beyond thrilled to have found a product that does what it promises. Recently I went to visit my best friend from childhood who I had not seen in a year. She met me at the airport and the first thing she said was,"You look so amazing, how is it that you are looking younger, I want your secret". Needless to say this will be my skincare line from now on. I will keep using my Purity and Microdelivery wash, because they are excellent, but everything else will be Algenist, it is pricey, but it delivers and I will gladly pay more for results like I have seen.
No.. it's not cheap... but I use it because it works... nothing works overnight... but this is pretty close... the money is in the product not the packaging... I've had no problem with 'rub off'... & even so... it's easy to tell which is which simply by shape & size...
