The two phases combine to offer an unparalleled experience - the effectiveness of a peel, with the luxurious benefits of an oil. Includes 30 cotton pads.

      Comments about Algenist GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Bi-Phase Peel:

      Very effective, non iriitating. It feels soothing when I apply because of the nourishing oil in it. I've been using glycolic acid and other chemical peels for about a decade so my skin is no stranger to peels. Because of my high tolerance, I leave this on for as many as 15 mins (could go longer but haven't tried) before I wash it off even though instructions say only up to 5 mins. I've had great results.

      No more dry patches, skin tone is more even and decreased acne breakouts. Gives me a radiant glow. It comes with 30 cotton pads and I've used all the pads but still have a little bit of the product left maybe for 2 or 3 more applications (I apply liberally). So you'll get 30-35 uses before you run out.

        I received a sample of this product and I was impressed with how it made my skin feel and look. I was initially hesitant due to the high cost, but I think the results make the cost of the product worth the purchase. I use it about every other day after showering and my skin feels softer and looks more even and supple.

          I don't feel I can give a good review until I've used a product for a while and I've only been using this approx. 2 weeks. I can tell you it feels like it's working its exfoliating magic. My skin is not irritated, nor does it make my skin dry to the point of tight and itchy like most exfoliators with a ton of glycolic acid, thanks to all the wonderful oils included in the formula. The real review comes if I see improvement in how my skin looks a couple of months from now...

            was told that you only need to use this once a week, but i've been using it every three days. it's seem to be 'repairing' my skin tone, sun spots and overall appearance. once i'm happy, i'll reduce to once a week.

            I love this product! I can't use it as many times as it suggests because I have really intense combo skin, and I find it dries out my skin like crazy, so I use it 1x per week when I really need a great exfoliator.

                A:

                Both the salicylic and glycolic acids in the Genius Bi-Phase Peel are at active levels; however, the actual percentages are proprietary and cannot be disclosed. The combination of ingredients is what is responsible for the amazing 10 day results. Of course, the addition of Alguronic Acid and Microalgae Oil help to repair and nourish the skin during the exfoliation process.
