Comments about Algenist GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Melting Cleanser:

I love this cleanser. It melts everything away and when you add water, it turns a milky white and "emulsifies." I just wish it wasn't so expensive.

    Comments about Algenist GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Melting Cleanser:

    I had been looking for a cleanser that did not irritate my eyes and would take off make and be a wash, without having to do two steps! This product is AWESOME! It goes on kinda oily (not really an oil, but I can't think of a better word for it!) and work it around on your face without WATER and then you add the water it becomes a very nice wash, like soap, except that it isn't! My face feels clean, fresh, and best of all my makeup is gonel

    I don't usually spend this much on a second cleanser, but this stuff is AMAZING. It is a great non-foaming cleanser, with anti-aging properties and it LASTS FOREVER. It leave skins clean, but not dry. I've had my last tube for nearly 6 months!

              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.

                      I really like the cleanser. I'm in my 70,s. And would like to know what serum and moisturizer is best. My skin is not overly dry or oily.

                        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!
