Rated 4 out of 5 by Auburnmom Great Product
I would've given 5 stars but deducted one for what I consider to be a really high price. I rec'vd the sample tube last yr. but never used it until yesterday. I normally don't use a scrub. I am 54, have very sensitive skin, large pores, oily t-zone, and most products from creams to lotions to make-up break me out. I've used ProActive for the past 10 years but try sample products I order from QVC on occasion. Yesterday when I used this peel for the first time I was AMAZED! It did take a good bit of product, a pea sized amount on each side of face plus another for forehead and another for chin and nose (total 4). I followed directions, it did NOT burn. Left it on for 5 minutes then wiped off with damp wash cloth. I was stunned at how smooth and wonderful my skin looked and felt. Also it did not scrape off what little tan I have left on my face which was a big plus! If QVC reduces the price I will definitely order the large tube, otherwise when I run out of my sample tube I will search for it somewhere else at a lower price. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

First, I'm ignoring the price in this review. You can see your yourself that it is $75 for 2 ounces and decide if that matters to you.
This is a treatment that helps refine the skin. My skin is 46 years old, damaged by sun, large pores, sometimes clogged pores and oily t-zone. Uneven texture overall. I've used this product 3 times (pea sized amount each time, though I could have used more, I didn't feel I needed to). Each morning, it has been like a little miracle.
Last night was no different. After a long hot day I had black heads around my nose and forehead, my pores looked huge and my skin looked limp and textured. I ran out of my Philosophy microdelievery peel, which always gave me immediate results but zero results lasted to the next day (I knew I wouldn't repurchase that one). This Algenist peel is different. I woke up with tiny, minuscule looking pores, no black heads, and a few pimples that had been forming yesterday are gone. My skin feels as glassy and looks taut. My skin tone is smooth and looks younger. And I'm not lying. It burns a little when I use this product, especially any pimples, but I know that it means that it is working. A pea sized amount every week should last me at least 6 months, so I'm going to buy this size once my small tube runs out.
I highly recommend that you try this, or Try it in the kit if you have large pores, aging, sun damaged skin, acne or any combination of the above. I have no idea how it would work on dry skin.
I think that it works better for me (faster for sure!) than the Ole Hendrickson3-step peel as well, and blows the microdelievery out of the water. I need to

I love this product, I received it in a kit. It is amazing! I have very sensitive skin and it did not burn. My skin was so smooth after the application. The reason for 3 stars is the price. Too expensive! The Algenist products are great but to start buying them separately would be $$$$. Algenist please bring more kits please.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Macallanmom Why so expensive ?
Although I do like this product, I'm not happy with QVC's pricing. After ordering this, I found it at my local Sephora (same 2oz size) for $58.00. Very surprised that QVC is selling the exact same product for $75.00. This is certainly not a good VALUE for me !

I was first exposed to the Algenist brand of products through the Beauty Test Tube and found that there wasn't a product that I got to sample that I didn't fall in love with. I have gone back and purchased full size versions a few times already. When I received this micropolish I was excited because I have been exfoliating for years and if I don't do it regularly something feels off. This product is gentle and yet produces fine results. You can use it frequently without the fear of overdoing it. Another home run for Algenist.
Rated 5 out of 5 by APRI LOVE THIS STUFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A
IVE USED ALGENIST FACE CREAM SINCE QVC FIRST GOT IT. I GOT THIS LAST MONTH AND JUST GOT AROUND TO USEING IT. I LOVE IT, IT STINGS JUST A TAD BIT WHEN YOU WORK IT AROUND YOUR SKIN IN CIRCULAR MOTIONS, BUT WHEN YOU RINSE IT OFF, MY SKIN LOOKED AND FELT GREAT. I TOPPED IT OFF WITH THE FACE CREAM AND IT LOOKS GREAT AND I FEEL SO PAMPERED. THESE ARE WONDERFUL PRODUCT. I USE THEM REGULAR AND I LOVE THE RESULTS. THATS THE SECRET TO FACE CREAM. GIVE THEM TIME TO WORK, USE THEM EVERY DAY. THANKS QVC. :)
Rated 5 out of 5 by FKC Best Sample Ever
I got a smaller tube of these the Beauty Test Tube. Wow!! I use it once a week and it makes my skin baby soft and smooth. Just a few minutes and remove with a washcloth. And no weird looking colors, it is clear and looks invisible.
What I love the most is when my skin is this smooth I need less of other products to maintain an amazing look. Rudiness, rough patches, whiteheads - all gone without one use. Also pore cleansing and tightening. Doesn't leave skin dry, just smooth and ready to receive serums and lotions.
I would take care not to over-use. The .5 ounce sample will last me quite sometime and I will absolutely purchase the full size when it is used up.

Because of surgery, I was not able to care for my skin & noticed numerous blackheads on my nose. I got a sample in the Test Tube so I tried it. Then put on lotion & went about my business until it was time to settle & use hand lotion. My hands were smoother than with newly applied lotion! Same for face. And with continued use, blackheads are disappearing.

I'm an exfoliation junkie.lol I'm always looking for the next-best exfoliator. My skin is super sensitive though so I have to be very careful what I use, but at my age, I can see my skin slowing down so I definitely have to use something.
This product really really makes my face feel smooth! I don't leave it on as long as they say to--I really don't have time. I just cleanse with my Wen cleanser and then use this to exfoliate and rinse off after about a minute.
Seriously, this removes any dry, flaky patches I have especially around my nose, and leaves my face baby soft and smooth. I haven't had any redness with it, but then I haven't left it on the full 3-minutes they recommend.
My makeup goes on smoother, my skin feels much nicer, and I'm really enjoying this product. I got the sample size that comes in the Beauty Tube, but it's really a generous sample so it ought to last me a while.
If I can hold off on my Wen-obsession (lol) I'll buy a full-sized tube when this runs out.
Definitely a great product for your beauty arsenal!

Purchased this item with much hesitation due to cost but decided to try. I was much surprised by the lovely results with very little time or effort. Just put it on when going into shower and massage it over skin in shower; then wash off after 5 mins. Results are very smooth and soft skin that takes moisturizer and foundation perfectly. __ Did deduct 1 star for overzealous price - just can't imagine how this is justified for the long term.
Rated 5 out of 5 by noway really effective and simple
I have tolerant skin, so I left it on the full 5 minutes after scrubbing.
It is just as effective as a 2 step micropolish peel I have used and MUCH easier. The infusion is not the same, the other being vitamin C and this being alguronic acid, so I cannot speak to the long term benefits of of one over the other. But the instant results are fantastic- and as I said, so much easier. Just apply, scrub, wait 3-5 mins and rinse.

Received first small tube. Results are ok at best. Using every orher day, this lasted only 3 wks.
