Rated 5 out of 5 by cosmicquality Gentle and Effective
I am happy with my purchase. Please note that I have not tried the new power cream by Algenist. In my opinion the Genius Cleanser is comparable to other oil cleansers that I have tried. I had tried sample sizes of the Genius Cream and found it to be gentle and more effective than the antiaging cream I used prior to this purchase. The Genius Cream does have a firming action that the cream I used prior to this did not have. My bf noticed the difference. Also I have dry/dehydrated sensitive skin and this cream keeps my skin very comfortable. When I am very dry I add a few drops of Algenist oil on top or Josie Maran Argan oil. To me getting the cleanser included in this package made the high price of the Genius Cream easier to deal with. Please note that I hit one of those major birthdays that end with 0 around the time I started this auto delivery. As of now I have not tried the Genius Serum.

I started using this cleanser/moisturizer combo about 6 weeks ago and my skin has never looked better. The cleanser is very different so I recommend reading about it before purchasing. And since the moisturizer is $110 by itself, you're basically getting the cleanser for free.
The auto-delivery defaults to every 90 days, but I'll be lucky to get 60 days out of the cleanser.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Suchi Just what I needed!
Been struggling with really dry skin this year and have been trying all types of products on my face. This was exactly what I needed. The Gel cleanser works exactly as it's supposed to do and leaves my face soft and hydrated. I follow with the Genius cream and I'm done. I love the consistency and feel of the cream, moisturizing, yet NEVER greasy.
Just wish it wasn't so pricey.

I like the moisturizer but do not like the cleanser at all, it is oily, greasy and feels like it is not cleaning the face. May return and just order the regular Algenist night moisturizer
Rated 5 out of 5 by Debp Moisturizing and Lessens Lines
I really like this set so far. The cleanser is fantastic. It takes off all of your makeup including eye makeup. It's gentle and your skin feels hydrated afterwards. The cream is very nice. It's moisturizing and there is definite improvement on my eleven lines and neck. The smell of the cream is actually very nice. It reminds me of fresh cream or something - I can't quite pinpoint it. I am pleasantly surprised with the results so far.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Pennykarma Not worth the money
I had very high hopes for this product and this line. I will avoid the Genius line all together and possibly Algenist as a whole. The scent is way to strong smells like cheap over scented candles, and I am not scent sensitive but it is just over the top. The cream may be a good if you have normal or oily skin. The cleanser was the big draw and a big disappointment. It workes but what good is it if I have to really rub hard to get mascara off? Sort of defeats the purpose of being gentle to the eye area.
