I don't get all the good reviews!

Comments about Algenist GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Melting Cleanser:

This always leaves me with racoon eyes, no matter how long I rub it around my dry face. It is by far the worst cleanser I have ever used. You either love or hate their products. I totally love their collagen serum, mist, and sunscreen. But I hate this and their jar creams which clog my skin more than any other brand I've tried!!!

        Works well for me when I remove my eye makeup with an eye makeup remover and then use Genius Ultimate all over my face. Love the pore reducing action after use.

          Comments about Algenist GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Melting Cleanser:

          I have been on the hunt for a makeup melt off cleanser that is in this form. I like balms but I do not always like the way they are packaged. I am very careful about bacteria getting into the products I use ever since I began to suffer adult acne so the fact that my fingers or anything else for that matter will never touch unused product is a huge plus for me. I also love the consistency of this. I do not care for the more watery formulas as I feel half is being wasted. This is the perfect combination of a cleansing oil and a gel like form making it easy to control how much you are using. It is very effective in removing makeup and dirt and couldn't be more easy. Now can we talk about that smell!!! The scent is heavenly!! I honestly cant get enough of the way this stuff smells! I definitely recommend this product!

            Comments about Algenist GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Melting Cleanser:

            Tried this product because I have a killer greasy t-zone and dry checks. Truly cleans and balances all of my face. I don't wear makeup much but when I do it removes my mascara like no other. Plus truly has helped with the beginning of fine lines around my eyes.

              It goes on as a gel and then I add water to it and it feels like a lotion, it removes my make-up and makes my skin feel clean and smooth
