Algenist Concentrated Serum and Firming Cream Duo
I purchased this duo when it was a TSV. I have previously used Dr. Denese's line for years along with Hope in a Jar. I still use these products intermittently Because they are excellent & I have always received compliments on my skin, at 60yrs. of age I am always told that I look like I'm in my early 50's, needless to say I love that. I also feel that after using any one product for awhile you have to rotate to other products because your skin just gets used to the product & is not as effective. I stumbled upon Algenerist & have been using it for months now & have received many compliments on my skin. it really is soft, smooth, & glowing. The only complaint I have is that of many others. This duo does not provide enough serum to last I belive 90 days or whatever the auto ship is. I have half a jar of firming cream & next to nothing with the serum. I hope Algenerist can correct what seems to be a problem or I will consider trying other products or going back to the ones that worked before. I never had this happen to me with any of Dr, Denese's products or Philosophy either. I wouldn't mind paying a few extra dollars to Algenerist to get the correct size of serum although it seems to be a mistake on their part. It is for that reason I am giving this product four stars instead of five. I considered giving it three stars but couldn't because it is an excellent product.
I've been using these products and the eye cream for several months and have seen no difference in my skin. The products are good enough to finish but not reorder. If you really want to see a difference, try Kate Somerville.
LUV LUV LUV!!!
I am a self-confessed beauty product junkie and have probably tried every commercial product on the market if it promised anti-aging benefits. Plus, as a medical professional, I also have access to the best prescription skin care products available. But I have to say that this stuff is the BOMB!! I am so glad I got it on auto delivery although, like others have commented, the serum doesn't last anywhere close to 90 days-- they really have to make that a larger size-- and I only use the stuff in the morning. I am 59 (+ 1/2) yrs old, have had a life-time of excessive sun exposure and, even though I was lucky my skin didn't look much worse, I was really looking for some improvement. I've been using Algenist now for 3 months and what a difference!! The lines and wrinkles really have almost disappeared, age spots on my jawline have faded, and my skin looks absolutely luminous. I honestly look 15 yrs younger and am thrilled. Now, I confess, I put the serum on in the morning and then use the LightStim to kind of bake it in. Not really sure if that makes a real difference or not. But I am extremely pleased with this product and how it's made a difference in making my skin look yrs younger. I won't be without it...in fact, I ran out of the serum while in Rome and, luckily, Sephora carried it so I was safe.
LOVE THE PRODUCT BUT!
I PURCHASED THIS ON AUTOSHIP WHEN IT WAS TSV. I NOW DO NOT WANT TO USE ANTHING ELSE. I AGREE WITH THE OTHER REVIEWS THAT THE
SERUM DOES NOT LAST MORE THAN 3 WEEKS AND THAT DROPPER IS
AWFULL. PLEASE IMPROVE THE DELIVERY SYSTEM, BUT THE PRODUCT IS
This Algenist duo is the greatest. Diminished fine lines and wrinkles in a very short time. Only drawback is that the serum does not last anywhere near 90 days! Highly recommend they increase the size of the serum. I have been out of serum over 2 weeks and still have 1/2 jar of cream. P.S. I am 71 years old. Wish everyone would tell their age to give a better idea on results for different age groups.
What Wrinkles What Large Pores
After one day of using this product my wrinkles and very large pores were gone gone gone. I have tried more products than I would like to admit, most made me breakout and the pores never got better. These products worked for me, I look 10 years younger as all my friends tell me. I am glad that I am on auto delivery. Thanks for a great product
Was told 3 times in one day how young I looked!
I was on a trip and 3 times during my air travel---I was told that I couldn't be a mother of 30+ year olds or the grandmother to 4.
I only have one complaint, waiting for my auto-delivery and I have a lot of the cream left and no serum....I think an adjustment in the sizes woul be great...more serum and possibly less cream.
Other than that, I'm sold! I love it! I've had other serums that make my skin itch, and have tried other duos that are at least 50% more expensive.
The difference in the fine lines and wrinkles is quite noticeable!
So Far, NO Results!
I've been using this for a month and see no change whatsoever, also there is no way this will last for 90 days. I also didn't know you were supposed to use a moisturizer on top of all this. By the time you buy the eye cream, the cleanser, etc. it costs a small fortune. In the long run, cosmetic surgery would be less expensive with results you could see. I gave it 3 stars because I do like the firming cream, not because it firms, but because it feels good on my skin.
Surprised at how well this duo is working!
I have been using Dr. Denese for almost two years with great success. My 56 year old skin looks a good 8 years younger. I thought I would see if Algenist would be an upgrade. Well, after ten days of use my skin is even more firm and smoother than what the Denese products were giving me. So now I use Denese facial firming pads followed by Algenist serum and then Algenist firming cream. I still use Dr. Denese Wrinkle Rx Moisrure Surge.
My skin could not be more beautiful. Every two days I also use Dr. Denese retinol. Yes, these products are expensive and I really cannot afford them but I have so much confidence when I know my skin looks this beautiful.
What an improvement!!!!
Tried this product hoping for firming. What a surpirse. Have used this product for 3 weeks now and there is a change!!!!
Should have known better
I have always thought It would take a cosmetic procedure to see any significant improvement to the firmness of my skin. I have lost elasticity and have some wrinkles but have been blessed with clear skin. Even at a younger age I didn't break out, until now. Since I stared using this product my face is broken out, and I really see no change in my wrinkles or firmness, obviously I am not a happy customer!!
I have purchased and tried many much more expensive anti aging serums and creams that
did practically nothing and at the most just moisturize. Algenist is almost a miracle face and neck cream. I am 61, and my stubborn forehead wrinkles and my no 11 softened dramatically within 2 weeks of use, and now in my 3rd week, wrinkles almost gone. I have noticed a bit of firming on my face and neck but am still waiting some softening of my naso-labial fold. For now, I am happy with what I see and will continue to use.
