Received a sample from Sephora and this stuff is really great for me while on accutane. Works great at night with Vaseline on top.



Cleansers -Algenist -GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Melting Cleanser

I got this in a set so it's not the full size but big enough to have used it for a few weeks. I like the smell (sort of vanilla) and the texture which is thicker than an oil or gel. It removes most of my makeup quickly though I do have trouble with removing mascara as other reviewers noted. I have sensitive eyes but haven't had a problem with this cleanser. My issue with this is that it doesn't rinse off completely or at least it doesn't feel like it. I get that you want a soft feeling after using a cleanser and don't want skin to be stripped but my face just doesn't feel totally clean after using this. I usually follow it with another gentle cleanser to remove the residue. Because of that, I'm going to use up the tube I have but won't repurchase.

Moisturizers -Algenist -POWER Recharging Night Pressed Serum

Surprised this product doesn't have more reviews. I got a small jar of this serum as part of a kit that I purchased at sephora. Of all the products in the kit this serum was the one I fell in love with.

It feels so hydrating and refreshing going on and it smells delicious. The scent is like a sweet vanilla but very subtle. The serum is solid in the jar but immediately melts into a serum when applied. It just feels like luxury.

As much as I loved it I didnt think I would ever purchase it again because it's over a hundred dollars but then I was in sephora one day and they had this on sale at half price and the jar contains 2 full ounces so it was a steal. I bought it and I use it every night before bed. I still love it but I also don't think I would ever pay full price for it. As lovely and luxurious as it looks and feels I can't say that it's actually improved my skin in any way other than making it feel hydrated and I don't need to spend over a hundred bucks for that. This serum is just an expensive treat that I will only buy if it's on sale.

Primer/ Corrector -Algenist -REVEAL Color Correcting Radiant Primer

It seems that both this product and the color-correcting powder are designed for medium skin tones. This primer went on fine, but definitely gave me a mild, and not uniform, "fake tan" look. Same as the powder, which however I can utilize as a bronzer/for contour. Whether it's actually color-correcting or not, I can't tell, given my new tan.

Meh.

Treatments (Face) -Algenist -Genius Liquid Collagen

Got my hands on a this beauty last week, used for 7 days now and already really liking it. My skin looks glowing, rested and more plump by the morning and generally just better overall. Even from the 1st application I could see a difference. It hasn't made any difference to texture or pores but I would use a Retinol or AHA/BHA for that purpose, separate to this. No stickiness to speak of, I think if anyone does experience a sticky after feel chances are they are using too much serum.

A friend of mine who used Liquid Collagen had dismissed this as all hype after an SA told her it could get rid of her 11's (expression lines) which she knows as well as I do - NO skincare product can do that as these are created by repeated muscular movements well below skin level. Only something that can stop those movements at their source, i.e botox can diminish the muscular movements and therefore the 11s.

Ok so back to this; yes it is pricey, it smells like a frying pan to my nose but I've read all sorts of feedback on the smell from good to bad. Personally I don't mind what it smells like when the results are this good! The dispenser system is a bit fiddly and often will not dispense product which can be frustrating. Yes it has its minor downfalls but its saving grace is its ingredients, everything from peptides to niacinamide, proven ingredients that help the condition and appearance/function of your skin... not those 11's!!
