      Comments about Algenist GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Melting Cleanser:

      Love the Algenist brand and have used their other cleansers, but I am so unhappy with this one, I wish I could return it. With the other Algenist cleansers, my face feels fresh and clean. With this product, my face feels oily, greasy and unclean. I'll switch back to the other Algenist cleanser.

                          A:

                          This would depend mostly on your skin concerns; however, if you enjoy the Genius Melting Cleanser, the Genius Cream would complement it very well. It addresses loss of elasticity and the advanced signs of aging. If there are concerns of skin discoloration, I would recommend the Genius Vitamin C+ Serum. If there are no concerns of skin discoloration, I would then recommend the Elevate Firming & Lifting Contouring Serum which helps to tighten, lift and sculpt. We hope this helps! :-) So glad you're loving the cleanser!
