Algenist Retinol Firming Serum and Firming Neck Cream
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!
I first tried Algenist with the TSV. I really liked the weight (heavy for neck, light for face) and greaseless feel. However the packaging on the retinol face treatment didn't allow me to utilize the treatment - pump, pump, pump and nothing. I was past the 30-days so just tossed it and kept the neck cream. Just received an auto-ship and again frustration as there is virtually nothing coming out o f the pump. I am sending it back - sad because I do like it when I can get the few odd drops. But when I pay this much for a month or two of face cream I want to use every last drop. This packaging hardly allows me to get the first drop!
I'm a fan!
I was already using the retinol firming serum; so this TSV is perfect for me. I love the serum, and I can a difference in my skin. There is NO discomfort when using this retinol product. I really like the neck cream also. It is moisturizing and firming. I am now such a fan of Algenist. Keep the new products coming.
No better than Ponds
I'm at the point with QVC that if the product doesn't do what it claims...well...it simply goes back! The TV hype was great - and I was certainly hoping for a small miracle; but like the others say - it's not worth the price! It didn't work and I used it religiously! BACK IT WENT!
that is about it. I did not notice any difference in my skin texture or any firming, so I would say it is not worth the price. I will not be reordering this.
