Algenist Retinol Firming Serum and Firming Neck Cream
I am sensitive and this works for me!
I am on AD and I have to say if you have problems with other neck creams that everyone raves about, but they irritate your skin on your neck, this prob will work for you. The RETINOL SERUM is also VERY GOOD and not all hype. It works BEAUTIFULLY and from what I read "The Cosmetic Cop" Paula Begoun rates this as "BEST". She saves that level of ratings only for proven cell communicating ingredients. "Contains a mix of retinol and other beneficial anti-aging ingredients. Packaged to protect its formula from light and air.
Lightweight texture works well with any moisturizer." Given the return policy, this is well worth your time to try.
My mind is changed on Algenist. I decided to give the products another chance to impress me. My skin is cooperating this time. First, the retinol really has made a difference in my fine lines and firmness, but it took awhile. Ten days wasn't near enough. And ditto for the neck cream. Yes, I'm liking Algenist so much that I've added the eye balm, serum, new cleanser and moisturizer to my regimen. Might we have an affordable TSV with full size items like in the 4 piece discovery kit? Also, I'd love to incorporate the firming products, but they have gluten. Bottom line is: I'm glad I tried Algenist again, and my mirror agrees.
Made a difference
I have learned through trial/error that nothing's going to stop the aging process on the face completely except for surgery. This duo did produce results. My skin is smoother & a bit more firm. It does look better. Having said that I probably will continue to search for a less expensive solution.
Don't Believe the Hype
I ordered this product in the hopes that by the holidays my skin would look more radiant. I am sorry to say that I believed all of the "scientific" hype used to endorse it. I used it according to the directions and it simply did not do anything at all.
Highly recommend Algenist - Price is right and have shared with family, thanks for bringing us such good products
I purchased the auto-delivery plan in October and I'm not sure that it has done a thing for my face except moisturize. The neck cream is fine as a moisturizer, but I don't see any changes in fine lines. I've had less faith in the firming serum. Part of the problem is the packaging. I had to return one because the pump didn't work. The top cannot be removed so I wasn't able to get the product out of the tube. I was quickly sent a replacement, but it seems like there is less product that I'm able to get out compared to my first shipment. I have a lot more neck cream (triple the amount) left compared to the firming serum. I'm 40 years old and don't have a lot of lines, but I don't see any noticeable difference. I think I might continue to use as a base if the packaging could be more consistent.
Was very disappointed with these products, especially for the price. I'm on the auto-delivery program and have been using the products since they were a TSV in October. The serum was okay and I did notice a slight difference. However, the neck cream didn't do anything but moisturize. Will be cancelling my A/D.
Made a difference
I have tried numerous skin care items, but I have to say that I have seen an improvement in my 68 year old skin. People tell me that I look much younger than my age, so Algenist is definitely helping. I see less lines on my face & neck since I have been using Algenist. I recommend giving it a try.
$100 Down The Drain
Gave both 30 days....no change. Have been sucked in too many times by qvc claims and will be passing on their many miracle skin renewing products in the future.
This stuff works
Wish this would come back as a TSV at same price. I ordered it and on a 62 year old neck, it made a remarkable difference. Have used lots of other products and they all bombed out.
I was excited when Algenist was first introduced on QVC and thought there may just be something to their theory. I began with trial kits. Thought the eye balm and moisturizer were nice. When the serum and firming neck cream was added, I decided to try these.
For me the serum was no different than other serums. The neck cream is nothing more than a moisturizer. I have noticed NO firming what so ever. Kept the products, cancelled the auto delivery and continued to use the remainder to justify the expense of this duo. I stumbled across Cellceuticals and I am IMPRESSED with their night treatment and love, love, love their moisturizer. Certainly has been saving my skin from this harsh winter.
Tried these for quite awhile now. Using daily. Neck cream is a nice moisturizer- keeping my skin well hydrated, but no magic in firmness. Just slightly better.
The firming serum for face- haven't seen much in the way of results.
I do have to say the original Algenist products; Anti-Aging Moisturizer, Reconstructing serum and Eye Renewal Balm are all lovely. I do think I need more help in the eye area though- still searching for something magical!
I do switch off with Dr. Denese's products at night for extra help.- they are all great!
