Regenerative Anti-Aging Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30 - Light

Light is the fairest color in this product and being PPP I expected this to work for me. Not only is it not light it has a distinct sallow/orange undertone. The color looked far too dark for me. Then the off putting scent got to me. Not floral but a laboratory chemical note that lingers. That didn’t agree with me at all and is totally unnecessary. The actual product is not at all moisturizing and I simply could not wear this long enough to discern any possible regenerative effects. The finish was uneven regardless the application method or amount of product I applied. So, wrong color, unpleasant scent, non moisturizing quality and uneven finish make for a useless product. I love Algenist toners, moisturizers, repairing oil and luminizer drops. This one is great if you have perfect warm toned oily skin and don’t mind an odd scent. I returned this without regrets.

Gentle Rejuvenating Cleanser

Some brands such as this one (Algenist) and others (such as Amore Pacific) are great in small packages. I am always thrilled to receive the deluxe size samples. They feel so luxurious during the application process and my skin loves them (no unwanted irritation or side affects). However, whenever I decide to buy a full size product because of my experience with the samples, I come away feeling disappointed. This cleanser is no different. It has a gel-cream like consistency and is tingly upon application. In small doses, this is nice. Initially, I found it to be gentle, with no harsh scrubs, yet thoroughly cleansing. Afterwards, my skin would feel lean, soft, and comfortable - not dry and irritated. However, in the long run, I found this cleanser to be actually irritating. I became tired of the "rejuvenating" aspects and couldn't wait to finish the product. I find this whiplash process to be utterly frustrating. I will not buy this product again and only enjoy it in small doses if and when I get samples sizes again.

GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Cream

So don't bother buying this unless you have problematic skin as I do. It won't be worth it for you. But if like me you break out with acne and rosacea at the slightest ingredient your skin dislikes then this might be good for you. The texture is a bit weird but it does absorb beautifully. All dryness is gone and my skin is wonderfully prepped for make up. I don't think it does much in terms of anything else but for me something that doesn't make my face erupt is perfect. I will probably buy this again but there are products that are as good for a fraction of the price.
