    Comments about Algenist GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Vitamin C+ Serum:

    I have dry/sensitive skin coupled with allergies. I've incorporated vitamin c into my skincare for years (to fight my freckles). I have a hard time finding products that don't break me out or eventually trigger an allergic reaction. This is gentle enough for my skin, heavy on the active ingredients, with the quickest results I have seen from any skin care product.

    I've ran out of this a couple of times, and the difference when not using it is noticeable. Within 2 days of morning and night use, my skin is softer. Within 5 days I have less dry patches. Within 7-10 I can notice the brightening and evening out of my complexion. Well worth the price tag.

        Comments about Algenist GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Vitamin C+ Serum:

        I use a vit c serum every am. I have normal skin (31 yrs old). I recently purchased this to try but I would prefer it as my vit c serum for the winter months as it contains oils so it's much more moisturizing than my regular serums. This serum does not cause any redness or stinging so I would recommend it for sensitive skin types as well or mature skin types In need of the extra hydration. Overall, this serum is effective. Also, the scent is not offensive as you might associate with an algae based product. Not bad.

        Comments about Algenist GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Vitamin C+ Serum:

        I hate that I love this product, since it's so expensive. I've tried the much-hyped Drunk Elephant c-serum and it just doesn't compare to this one. I see immediate results with this. It calms my redness better than any other product on the market. I wish they'd make a larger (and cheaper per oz) version of this.

              Algenist has great serums. I've used the normal serum for a while and saw significant difference in brow frown lines. Ulta had a special on this one so I picked up a bottle and am glad I did. The serum spreads further so I use half as much as the normal serum. I would definitely buy again.

              Got turned onto Algenist by a sample of the Genius Melting Cleanser. Love it. I just bought the serum a week ago and I can already tell the difference. My wrinkles are reduced and my complexion is brightened. I just look so healthy! Having recently celebrated my 60th birthday, I was looking for a skin pick-me-up and I have found it! I remembering reading a review on this site about the product's bad smell, and I have to agree. My first reaction was something like "OMG this is bad!" I did think, however, that it must work for people to put up with it. Strangely enough, after only a couple of days, I no longer find it offensive. I was also concerned my first couple of nights that my sensitive skin would react to the serum because at first my skin tingled a bit. I am happy to say that my skin has adjusted well to it. And I have started using it in the morning as well.
