    Great for my sensitive skin. Expensive but worth the price. My skin is smoother, less break outs and it is reducing lines and wrinkles.

        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.

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

        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.

            I've been using the Algenist line including this product for 2 years. This is a great product, and I just stocked up during the 1-day ULTA half off sale. It absorbs well, works well with my oily skin, tightens and brightens. A little goes a long way, and I would highly recommend it.

              This stuff seriously is amazing. The only con is the price. Put all that cheap stuff together and costs the same. So worth it. By end of week 1 my skin was seriously smoother and pores smaller. It works!

                This solves my hunt for a lightener. I have many acne scars and sunburn spots. This instantly lightens. Yes it is temporary like all skincare. Yes it has a wrong smell even though it has a small fragrance. This is worth the money. Out of all my lighteners, this out beat all. I'm not sure about anti-aging but Vitamin C says it all.
