        I have been waiting days for this promo! Only to find myself out of luck! As I was checking out online this prdt. sold out - so I rushed over to my local store with 30 minutes to spare! Only to find the doors locked at 7 mins till 9!! The Sales Associate refused to let me in, and worst of all they had this prdt. on display at the front of their store! This was extremely aggeravating - it will take me some time to stomach this and to go back to buying from Ulta!!!!

        Comments about Algenist Retinol Firming & Lifting Serum:

        I like Algenist products a lot, some better than others. This product feels nice when applied but I find I can't use it more than a few nights a week or it leaves me dry and sensitive. I am accustomed to retinol products so I am not a newbie but sensitivity varies with the delivery system of the retinol itself. I have to skip a day or two in between using this which is unusual for me. I have previously used Exuviance retinol and Skinceuticals among others without this issue but I will continue to use this rather than return it. I bought it on a beauty deal but don't think I would purchase again at full price. I have not yet noticed any significant changes in my skin but I'm going to give it a chance as overall I like this line.

          • Sensitive Skin

          Comments about Algenist Retinol Firming & Lifting Serum:

          Most serums containing retinol leave my skin with red, itchy patches. This serum is soothing and doesn't cause red blotches, even if I use it every day. At my age, I don't expect wrinkles to disappear, but this does leave my skin looking smoother and with a better texture. Algenist products are not cheap, but they are effective and a little goes a long way.

            Comments about Algenist Retinol Firming & Lifting Serum:

            This product was one that got excellent reviews & continued to pop up in my own research so I decided to go for it despite the hefty price tag. I'm glad I did as the product works very well! After a week of 2x daily use as directed my skin is overall smoother, small imperfections are disappearing or are hardly noticeable, and my skin tone has very much evened out. It also seems to have kept the oilier parts of my face in check without drying out the rest or irritating at all. I have sensitive/combo skin & have used Roc Daily Retinol Day/Night moisturizers as well as Neutrogena's latest retinol product. These were okay, but no retinol products I've tried thus far have worked so completely with my sensitive/combo skin. For this reason I will continue to use it despite the price point.
            My only complaint is there is no way possible to know how much product is left in the tube/bottle even though the packaging suggests you would be able to see & measure out the appropriate amount. This is UBER frustrating because you just have to guess at the correct amount & hope you don't run out before you're able to purchase your next bottle. For a product offered at over $100 I feel this inconvenience is pretty stupid & should be an easy fix for the company. Yes, I'll shell out the cash for a product that truly works but this one annoyance shouldn't have to be an issue for such an 'upscale' brand as Algenist.
