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

Very effective! There is a strong smell upon application but results are worth it! I saw glowing skin and reduced discoloration in only a few days, using only at night. I'm 32 and no wrinkles yet so I can't speak to the effectiveness on wrinkles or fine lines but I've loved all of the algenist products i've tried so far. I'm going to be loyal to this brand especially as I get older and develop wrinkles.

My makeup application goes on much more smoothly too because this softens and refines the skin!

      It is costly so I use it every morning and alternate evenings. I use the Algenist face wash every evening. That is great also. It is the melting scrub.

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

      Wonderful product. I bought it because it had 3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid as the primary active and a host of other good ingredients. It left my face very soft, and I don't need a moisturizer afterwards. Really brightens the face as well.

      It does have a smell that's attributed to some of the ingredients, but it doesn't last after 5 minutes and it's not strong.

      • Q:

        I have oily/acne prone skin, would this be a safe product to use without breaking me out? Non-comedogenic?
        Asked on 4/9/2016 by Saji

        1 answer

        • Staff Expert

          A:

          All Algenist products, including Genius Vitamin C+ Serum, are non-comedogenic and are formulated for all skin types. If you have specific concerns with skin sensitivity, I would recommend to conduct a patch test prior to using. The Genius Vitamin C+ Serum could be a great choice if you have discoloration from old acne scars, fine lines, and deep wrinkles or have seen sagging in the skin. We hope this helps!
