Description
What is it: This dual-action anti-wrinkle firming serum, which is gentle enough to use every day, helps improve the appearance of skin texture and radiance.

Who is it for: Anyone experiencing fine lines and wrinkles who is looking to help improve the appearance of skin firmness, smoothness, and overall radiance.

Why is it different: Alguronic acid is combined with retinol in this comprehensive antiaging formulation to help improve the appearance of skin firmness while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Algenist Retinol Firming Serum 1oz is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did nothing Sorry, but it did nothing for my skin. Maybe that's the way it is with products - they work for some and not others. So, I'm disappointed. It's going back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Algenist rocks I have yet to meet an Algenist product that I didn't love. Their product deliver as promised and never irritate the skin. I have tried a lot of brands over the years but rarely wanted to stick with one in particular until I tried Algenist. Love it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Product Is Fine I agree with the other writer, who said she that although she liked the product, she HATES the container! In addition to the reasons she mentioned, it is constant,y tipping over on the counter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this--but where did the deluxe 2 oz size go? I love this product. I started using it on January 1st (I am 33 years old and made a New Years Resolution for better skin!) with the expectation that I would not be seeing results right away. I have quite a bit of sun damage from tanning beds in my teens & twenties (ugh!), and I've always battled with acne and acne scarring. Although a round of Accutane took care of most of my acne woes 10 years ago, it also zapped all the oil in my skin and as most of us know...dry skin ages much, much, much faster. My skin is also super sensitive has a hard time tolerating prescription-strength retinoids. I turn into a bright red, painful, stinging-faced, flakey skin mess when using them. But I also know that studies show that retinoids are the best at reversing signs of sun damage and aging, so I decided this time around to take babysteps back into using prescription-strength retinoids by introducing an OTC retinol first...to get my sensitive skin used to them first, so to speak. A mild retinol is better than no retnoid at all, right? I did some research and settled on Algenist's Retinol Firming Serum mostly because of its glowing reviews around the internet and the fact that it has both a retinol and some peptides for firming, too. The first few months have been a bit bumpy for me, literally--retinols can cause break outs when you first use them since your skin is "purging", so I was well-prepared for that. (Sidenote: I read several reviews on the internet of people giving this product one star because it "caused breakouts" but retinols do that! That means they are working! The breakouts only last a little while, you just have to keep using the product and get through it. Most retinols will likely cause breakouts in the beginning, just keep that in mind.) Now that I'm about 9 weeks in, I'm finally seeing some good results! The break outs have cleared and my skin looks much clearer/brighter/smoother and more even. Retinols can take 6 months to a full year to show results, and so if I'm seeing results like this now...I can't wait to see what my skin looks like a few months down the road! That being said--QVC had a deluxe 2 ounce size that I ordered because I've found I go through 1 ounce of it every month, and it's expensive. The 2 ounce was a little bit more economical and awesome, but I notice it's no longer available to purchase here. Please bring that size back, QVC! It's the reason why I purchased this product through you, and now I'm forced to look elsewhere to buy it. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! "I am always skeptical of wrinkle creams/lotions and their claims but this seems to be working on my deep wrinkles. I've tried to use it faithfully since March 10 and I am noticing some difference. I don't expect a miracle at 68 but maybe? I am using it in conjunction with the handheld Nuface facial toner."

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the serum...HATE the container! I Love this serum! That being said, I HATE this container. There is no way to see what is truly in the container and about 10 days into the 90 days, I was pumping more air than serum. I use this serum ONCE a day and I know that there is not a 90 day supply in the container. It is impossible to get the container open to get very drop of the serum out...and due to the cost that is exactly, what I want to do...this has happened with my first two shipments...one more is on the way. If this is the case with #3...three strikes and your out! What a shame.....great serum!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great product but packaging needs work. This product has worked great for me. I am 55 years old and my skin is much smoother looking and feels so soft to the touch. I noticed a difference within two weeks of beginning use of this product. Have been using this serum for 31/2 months and plan to continue using unless I have more problems with the pump. There were no problems at all with the first shipment I received but the second shipment that arrived is a different story. Either the pump is defective or there is barely any product in the container. I will be contacting customer service and returning the second shipment for a replacement. A simple solution to this problem (not an uncommon problem, read the reviews) is to repackage the product in a different container with a removable top. I agree with another reviewer that even though this is advertised as a 90 day supply it is a very skimpy 90 day supply. I barely made it through the first 90 days and only used it once a day. For me, the product itself is 5 star but due to the skimpy 90 day supply and the defective pump in the second shipment I am only giving a 3 star rating. QVC should address these problems immediately-the pump issue in particular due to the complaints by several reviewers.
