      Comments about Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Melting Cleanser:

      I first received this as a deluxe sample gift with purchase. I tried it as a waterless makeup remover, applying a baby pea size on my dry, made-up skin, and wiped it off with a soft tissue. Not only does it smell divine, and not in that gross perfumey way, it's effective for removing even the most durable waterproof mascara and eyeliner. Alternatively, you can use it on dry skin, add a few drops of water to further loosen your makeup, and rinse it clean. You'll be amazed at how much makeup this removes. Personally, I have very oily, acne-prone skin. I'm prone to cystic acne. This product does not aggravate my skin but to be fair I do cleanse again my favorite bland skin cleanser from Paula's Choice and my Foreo Luna. I've since purchased the full size after finding that the deluxe 1.5oz size lasted me over two months. It's worth every penny! On a side note, this did not irritate my eyes - at all. If you're frustrated over the poor quality of makeup removers give this a try. If you have super sensitive, dry skin - give this a try. Or even if you have oily skin it's no matter. This cleanser is truly for anyone looking for a gentle, effective cleanse.

          Terribly greasiness that lasts and lasts all day

            • Too Greasy

            Best Uses

              Comments about Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Melting Cleanser:

              I used this 3 times, using varying amounts of product, from a dime sized dollop all the way down to smaller than a pea sized dollop to use on my whole face. I followed the directions to a T: put it on my dry face, rubbed in circles until it became an oil (a thick, grease is more like it), and then added warm water (in the shower!!!...you could NEVER use this at the sink to wash your face!!!) to try to turn it into a light, milky emulsion. That last part never happened no matter what I did.

              This product is a thick, heavy, greasy, impossible to rinse from your face disaster. After each time I tried this product, I had to use my regular cleanser (Murad) twice to remove the disgusting thick grease it left on my face. Also, after the third time I used it I developed 3 (!!!!) deep pimples on my cheeks. I am 50 years old, and haven't had a pimple like these in over 30 years.

              I truly don't understand the positive reviews of this product. It is literally the worst facial product I have ever used. It did remove makeup, but then again so would Vaseline petroleum jelly, which is exactly how this product feels like on the skin after using it....heavy and greasy.

              My recommendation is to avoid this product at all costs, and I usually enjoy using Algenist products.

              I received this product as a sample in a gift bag that was free with another purchase from Ulta

                  At 50 --I've been looking for the 'right' cleanser for me. Until trying this one, they all seemed the same no matter what the price. This product is unusual--the texture and greasiness seems strange, but it works!!

                        I received a sample of this when I made a rather large purchase a few weeks ago. I thought the girl made a mistake and put someone else's purchase in my bag because the sample was seriously huge! From the very first time using it, I was in LOVE! I'm huge on smells and this one smells awesome! Not chemical-like but clean and sweet. My skin texture improved from the first use! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS!
