Algenist Regenerative Anti-Aging Moisturizer

In the battle against time, we’ve tried nearly every anti-aging product out there—and nothing beats this sophisticated moisturizer. Powerful enough to go head to head with our deepest lines and wrinkles, it uses a unique microalgae compound to spur the cellular renewal process. And unlike harsh retinoids, it won’t irritate skin and is gentle enough to wear during the day. Formulated for all skin types, it leaves skin firm and glowing. Who can argue with that?

Painfully pricey
Sampled

I'm sure it's good, and I made my minuscule sample last as long as I could, but it's far too pricey to use.

Made me break out!
Purchased

Clogged my pores to no end. Should have tried the sample size! What a waste of money, I won't buy anything else fullsized again without trying it out.

Hated the scent

This seemed fine as a moisturizer, but the scent was NOT good. I could hardly put it on my face.

A little too much tingle....
Sampled

I have been using the Philosophy Hope in a Jar on my face for over a year with good results. No redness, tingling etc. Having received this sample I figured I would give it a try as I had seen rave reviews for it countless times on QVC.

After my normal AM face wash, I applied this product like I would normally apply my Hope in a Jar. Within minutes I started to feel an odd tingling sensation that I could not stand. This resulted in me washing the product off my face. Maybe with time the tingling subsides, but I have worked so hard to get my skin to the point that its currently at that I didn't want to risk leaving it on to find out.

I'm 20 so don't really need an anti-aging cream... I wish age were taken into account when the boxes are made because I've had a couple samples like this that just aren't appropriate for me

Hated the smell
Sampled

I thought the smell of this product was horrible! It has a medicinal smell to me that was very unappealing! I'd never spend $90 on a product that smelled bad, even if it worked great!

This product had too much of a silicone base...
Sampled

This product had too much of a silicone base for my skin and clogged my pores. I think it resembles a foundation primer more than a moisturizer.

lacks (exfoliating) bells and whistles
Sampled

This moisturizer is unscented and leaves my skin feeling very soft and supple. It has a lovely texture. Unfortunately, after two weeks of using it as my primary moisturizer, I'm seeing spots and overall (subtle but noticeable to me!) dullness. I don't have a major breakout, but there are whiteheads all over my face. My skin requires consistent doses of chemical exfoliation to stay clear. This moisturizer may work well for those without desquamation issues.

Soft
Sampled

Leaves my face soft. I'm not old though so I don't have any aging with my face to see a difference yet.

Good, but not enough moisture for me
Sampled

While I liked this product, I have dry skin and I just do not feel it was moisturizing enough. If your skin tends to be more oily you may love it.
