You will notice a change in your skin right away . My skin was all one color. No splotches or sun damage. That was all gone. Nose to mouth lines weren't so deep. Love it. Vitamins c is good for anti aging. I think you'll like this one. Linkiepie
Rated 5 out of 5 by Galdena Amazing!!
At almost 61 yrs old, I confess to being a beauty product skeptic as I've tried more than a few in my time, but I just had to write about this one. It's truly amazing!! I had deep lines and wrinkles on my forehead and around my eyes (and growing concerned that I might finally be starting to look my age!) and was looking for the miracle product. I admit that it did nothing in the promised 10 day period but, then, nothing ever works on me like it apparently does on everyone involved in the studies, BUT, by week 3, using it under the MicroAlgae oil and my usual Genius moisturizer and eye cream, I was noticing very definite changes in my skin's appearance-- much softer to touch and the wrinkles were actually disappearing!! My face now looks like it's been airbrushed and I love rubbing my forehead and feeling how smooth it is. Unfortunately, this stuff (as with the entire Algenist line) is horrifically expensive and, since I absolutely bathe in this stuff, I ran out of it after only a month. Luckily, I just got a humongous raise at work so, hopefully, it can keep me in the entire Genius line as I'm on auto-delivery for all the products. I'm also happy that the line is carried at the BIG beauty store nearby for emergencies when I run out (although I do pay more for it there)-- they even carry it in their stores in Rome where I go 2x/yr so I never need to worry about ever being caught without it (which has definitely come in handy!). Plus, being from San Francisco, I am proud to be supporting a worthy local business. Still trying to figure out how they discovered an awesome skin care line while developing an alternative fuel source... did someone fall into a vat of it and come out wrinkle free??? I just absolutely LUV this stuff!! It's one of the few products that I've found delivers what it promises-- just not in 10 days. Patience...
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lemmonee Genius C Serum
I have been using for 40 days now. Face appears smoother, brighter. I use P.T. Roth Retinol PM, I started alternating this with my retinol, and I top off with my Strivectin wrinkle cream. I like the scent, and I like the feel of Genius on my clean skin. It works well with my other night time beauty treatments. I then began using in the day time as well it goes on very smooth, not greasy and I can then moisturize with my hydrashield, and then top with my primer. I have oily skin, even for 53. I have had some acne issues in my life as well. I would say a little goes a long way. I have been looking for a Vitamin C to complete my treatment, I have found it. I also would recommend the Genius moisturizer too. I want to try the cleanser as well. This product was not greasy IMO, it went on smooth and easy, no harsh effects.
Rated 5 out of 5 by KHART MAKES THE OTHER GENIUS PRODUCTS EVEN BETTER!
I HAVE BEEN USING THE GENIUS EYE AND SKIN TREATMENTS AND LOVE THEM. THIS JUST MAKES THEM WORK EVEN BETTER. IT DOESN'T SMELL AS GOOD AS THE OTHERS BUT THAT GOES AWAY IN A FLASH. MY SKIN FEELS EVEN SOFTER! I ALSO USE THE CLEANSER AND LOVE IT. I TOO WISH THEY WOULD SUPER SIZE EVERYTHING. I AM 65 AND ALWAYS WAS BLESSED WITH A GREAT COMPLEXION. THIS TAKES ME BACK TO THE FEEL OF YOUTH. I WAITED A FEW WEEKS AFTER RECEIVING TO SEE HOW IT WORKED OVER TIME BEFORE WRITING A REVIEW. I AM VERY IMPRESSED. I HAVE BEEN A LISCENSED COSMETOLOGITS FOR 46+ YEARS SO I HAVE ACCESS TO MANY PRODUCTS. I CHOOSE ALGENIST GENIUS LINE! I WANTED TO RECOMMEND THE EYE CREAM AND CLEANSER BUT I DIDN'T SEE THEM LISTED. I REALLY LIKE THE GENUIS LINE.
Rated 5 out of 5 by yat This Really Does Work As Promised!
I am red haired and have very sensitive skin and some serums I have tried seemed too harsh. With this serum it has been only positive. I actually saw a difference in less than a week! My skin got a finer texture and the pores around my nose look tighter and smaller. Even the crepy skin on my eye lids is much firmer and smoother. I also noticed my skin looked brighter, clearer and just overall better. Several people have commented on how great my skin looks. One even asked if I'd "Had a little work done". Now THAT'S a compliment. I so wish I had taken before and after shots. I am 64 years old.
Although your given no real instructions on the amount to use ( i.e. how many pumps), a little does go a long way.
Rated 1 out of 5 by dawni I only want the promised results.
I'm not asking for a lot. I just want the results shown in the 'before and afters.' Is that too much to ask? This is on it's way back.
Rated 1 out of 5 by SandraLee 10 DAYS AND NOTHING.
I know not every serum/cream works for everybody and this is one of those for me. I love the Algenist Line and am on Auto Delivery for the Tightening Cream and also used the Super Size Moisturizing Cream and LOVE them both but this C Serum just did absolutely nothing for me but leave my face sticky feeling...I felt like I had a sticky mask on and couldn't wait to put moisturizing cream over it from Algenist. I did wait around 15 minutes so it would have time to soak in and work a little bit... Did not help. I also put nothing on after it to see if that did something for a couple of days. I could hardly take the feeling of it on my face alone but I wanted to see if this needed some "alone time" so to speak... Nothing worked so I cannot recommend this C Serum at all. Good luck though and hope it works for you. Algenist has some amazing products.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Prendie Girl Disappointing Product
I had high hopes for this product but found no improvement to my skin. Too high priced to keep since much lower priced drug store products would give me the same results.
