Algenist Genius_Ultimate Anti-Aging Cream, 2oz. Auto-Delivery
Best face cream
I've tired a lot of skin creams and this is the BEST. I love all Algenist products and would never use anything else again. Please bring us Algenist Genius eye cream. Also longer auto delivery would be great. I've used some Algenist products had them on auto pay and once it was completed you no longer offered it and had purchase on the outside.
This is an amazing cream!
I use a myriad of skin products, including some from Dr Perricone, and this cream has made an improvement to my skin. If you have mature skin that needs tightening and moisturizing, this would be a good one to use. I have already recommended this to my best girlfriend!
Works Wonders For Me!
I absolutely love this product. I have been using the Algenist firming & lifting serum along with the firming & lifting cream, I do use also the Algenist moisturizer, & then Genius came along. It was like icing on cake. When I first started using genius I only used it after the serum, & I was amazed, My fine lines on my forehead are gone. I had very light #11 lines gone completely. My problem are was the parenthesis or smile lines around my mouth, I see 50% difference. I now use all of the Agenerist products, I ordered the 2 New ones that were introduced 2 nights ago. One is scrub the other is an eye serum. I think I just finally found the right brand for me. I have used every high end line on the market & finally found one that works for me. That's key finding a line that works for u. I also use the clarasonic, that's just must-have go to for any skincare product. Ladies I don't even have to use these algenist products every day if I miss a day or two & my skin still glows & is moist. I am 60 yrs. Most people think I'm 50yrs
Wonderful texture to this mid-weight moisturizer, as it melts right into my combination skin. I am sensitive to added fragrance, but I personally like the smell of the shea butter ingredient. I was pleasantly surprised I did not have any skin breakouts, as my skin is so sensitive to new products. This has been a very good moisturizer during this crazy winter season. Although this is marketed as the all-in-one, anti-aging multi-purpose cream, I think one must still use an anti-aging serum underneath, both morning and night. Overall, a wonderful moisturizer. Will have to see if it will be too heavy for the summer months.
Softness and Hydration
I really like this product, even though I've not seen "monumental" improvements as to deeper lines. This cream really, REALLY hydrates and softens my skin incredibly; sinks in without a residue on the surface. Of course, hydration is key with wrinkles. I love how my skin feels. I cleanse a.m. and p.m. with Biore Free Your Pores Charcoal cleanser and follow with this. Not every skin reacts the same and I don't expect miracles. But I must admit that my skin is definitely more youthful feeling and looks so much better than before. I have not encountered any of the problems others have expressed with pilling and dryness whatsoever. Maybe if others tried to add periodic exfoliation to their regimen, it may works more effectively. I'm going to keep using this for now. I do think it is a bit pricey, however.
If you are expecting a "facelift in a jar..."
....or a "10 day miracle" you will be disappointed. The product has the consistency of pudding and a subtle, unidentifiable scent. After 1 month of use any improvement to the definition of minor lines and creases was virtually imperceptible. There was no improvement as dramatic as the "before" and "after" photos used in the product pitch, which are probably not "typical" results. I haven't had the product long enough to judge whether there is further potential benefit from prolonged use. Also, this product doesn't play well with other products when used as a base. While on vacation, I put a specially formulated facial sunscreen over this product and it rolled up into an unsightly mess of white, flaky residue. This had never happened with other moisturizers I have used as a base under sunscreen.Now I use this product only at bedtime. If you have deep pockets and want to give it a whirl, I hope your results will be different. I will finish the jar, but plan to cancel auto-delivery.
Best face cream ever used
58yrs old, so I've used many brands of high end creams. I really love this cream, the consistency of it, the way my skin feel after putting it on. There's no shine, greasy slick feel waiting for it to absorb. It goes right in so I can get my makeup on! I don't smell anything and I do have a sensitive nose. And you don't have to use a lot, it lasts along time, another plus!! My skin looks great! I first use Algenist firming serum then the cream. The two combined is a must. I've never experienced grainy feel or pilling. That usually happens when I'd mix various product lines together. I'm also using the new face oil and polishing duo Tatcha LOVE! And Kate Sommerville retinal duo. My skin has been transformed. I won't be without this cream. Thank you!
Love this cream
I have been using this cream for a few weeks and I love it! My skin is soft and supple, wrinkles are not as deep. I also really like the smell, and for me it is a soft, sweet coconut.
Soothing and Glowing
This is an amazing cream. I am very happy with the results. My skin has a greater luminosity and smooth texture . I find it vey soothing. As I am in my 60's , I need emollient and moisturizing. It does all that! It smells delicious too. Love all the Algenist products.
I have been using Genius for about a month now and have noticed a softening of the lines around my brow, mouth, and eyes. I like the texture and smell of the cream. I also recommend their eye cream. I have purchased a lot of the high end anti-aging creams from QVC and found this to be one of the very best and will put it on auto-delivery. I also look forward to trying the neck cream too.
I had been using the previous firming cream for 6 months with just minimal results. This product is so improved that I did see positive results in 10 days. But, wanted to know if I would continue to see more reduction in my wrinkles in 30 days. I am getting near the bottom of the jar and am still seeing improvement. My skin is softer, yet firmer. I have deep(!) wrinkles in my forehead and they are much better. By the end of the day, my forehead wrinkles are not as relaxed and smooth as in the morning, but the total 24 hr. appearance is greatly improved. I love the end results so far and am confident that improvements will continue. Highly recommend it.
For the price I expected better results. It made my skin feel very taut and grainy-feeling. Used it for more than 3 weeks and saw the same wrinkles but w/ a drier feel. The packaging is also way over the top. Couldn't they at least use a lighter weight jar (plastic rather than glass) so it wouldn't break if it falls off the vanity? It might even cost less to make and thereby pass the savings on to the consumer. I'm sending it back and returning to using Philosophy Miracle Worker which is more emoliant and makes my skin glow while plumping the wrinkles!
