I like this moisturizer. It does it's job without being greasy. And it absorbs into the skin. Not just sit on top of it like others do. My face feels nice after using it at night. The complaints I have are 1. I do not like the smell. It's not horrible but I just don't care for it. 2. I wish they'd put it in a pump. Even though I wash my hands before using, I still feel that it's unsanitary. 3. The price is a little high but it's the best thing I've found that works for me. If they'd put it in a pump bottle I'd buy it again.

Broke me out badly...,I tried the regular and the spf 20. I couldn't trust if they both gave me lil pimples or if it was just one over the other. Too bad cause I liked the product, but for 90$ I would be a mess if I kept using this. Got great samples at sephora, used this product for 10 days. Might be the "Algae" sea product in the ingredients that did it, idk. This is a highly acne causing ingredient. Most sea extract stuff breaks out skin.

This was marketed to me as something that would calm down, and moisturize my skin (even though t was an anti-aging product). I have oily, acne-prone skin, so I don't know what I was thinking when I purchased this. But I thought, hey, this person sees my face right now, plus I told her what I was looking for. She definitely knows what she's talking about. Too bad for me, I guess. Bottom line, didn't work at all for what the representative at Sephora told me.

I received a sample of the Overnight Restorative Cream if rom Sephora which I loved. I bought the full Algenist line thinking I was set and I will love them. Unfortunately, I did not love the Regenerative Anti-Aging Moisturizer with SPF20. It did not love me back as well. In fact, it gave me a really really bad thrashing reaction on my neck, only used on my neck to try out. My neck looks like a cat went psycho on me and scratched it like a scratching post. I returned everything I bought from the line, fearing for my poor skin.

Excellent product. I absolutely love this. I have been trying out different Algenist products via gwp's and samples for the past year now. For some reason there have been loads of Algenist freebies in circulation from Sephora, Birchbox, etc. Well, aside from the cleanser (which I haven't made up my mind about yet) I can say the Regenerative Anti-Aging Moisturizer is their only product that I would pay full price for. What sets this moisturizer apart (for me) is that there is a visible difference when I use it vs. when I don't. This moisturizer makes my skin glow. I look healthy, rested, and younger. Honestly, younger! I put this product up there with Creme de la Mer, but unlike La Mer the texture is somewhat lightweight and so much easier to deal with. I think this is the stand-out of the whole Algenist line and I do plan to repurchase.

This is nothing special. I used the version with SPF 20. It has a pleasant enough smell and a nice texture (goes on well, not oily), but for the money ($90 for 2 oz/60 ml) I expect more results. Also, I dropped it and the top broke, which doesn't usually happen to me. I feel that other products work better at a lower price.

Used this faithfully every night following the Algenist serum and besides being a good moisturizing night cream I saw no other benefits. Super expensive for a night cream that just moisturizes, but didn't break me out and no sensitivity so I can say that much. I've moved on to a different line and I kind of regret spending the money that I did but maybe it works for others, just not me.

I'm very happy with this lotion - I only wish it had sunscreen in it, and then it would be pretty close to perfect. It sinks in quickly, makeup applies flawlessly on top of it, it's perfectly moisturizing yet never greasy, smells pleasant, and most importantly - it has lessened the fine lines near my eyes and on my forehead. Am I wrinkle-free? Nope. Pretty sure I would need something surgical rather than topical for that, but my skin definitely looks fresher and younger than when I was using Oil of Olay. So I'm willing to pay the $75 for this until something just as effective comes along at a lower price.

I've been using this for a couple months and I've noticed a huge difference in my skin. I'm only 23 and I have pretty good skin, so I wasn't expecting much beyond a decent moisturizer, but I am completely blown away by how much better my skin looks overall by using this just once a day. It absorbs really well and doesn't feel greasy (and I'm really sensitive about greasy products). My skin looks smoother, my pores look smaller and I have this awesome glow that I've never seen in my skin before. My only advice would be to make sure you wash your face before using this, otherwise it WILL feel greasy. But, if you apply it to a clean face, it feels light and soft.

Wonderful product! I had a sample of this moisturizer before I bought it and it made my make up look better, moisturized my skin better than my previous one.

I have super oily and extremely acne prone skin and it's always an issue using moisturizers and being worried about whether it'll make my face feel greasy or break me out. This product sinks right in and makes my skin feel smooth and didn't make my skin break out at all.

I love it so much however because of the price I can't purchase a second jar, I'm almost done with my first one.

The packaging is alright, but I'd much rather using a pump, seems more sanitary that way.
The entire jar lasted me about 5 months, which is pretty good.

So over all, LOVE IT, would purchase again (When I have the cash to spare!)
