Algenist Retinol Firming and Lifting serum REVIEW!!
This is a retinol serum that is over the counter. The packaging for this product is one of the best for protecting the product from going bad. It has a pump and is in a clear glass bottle. It is 1 fl. oz. I am in love with this retinol product. It is a lightweight moisturizer that delivers a lot of hydration, while vanishing the appearance of fine lines and dark spots. This product does not contain parabens, sulfates, or phthalates. It contains an ingredient called, algae exopolysaccharides. This ingredient is hyped up to be an all time anti aging ingredient. Although the claims have not been proven, it still has great features like antioxidants and moisturizing capabilities. The ninth ingredient is retinol which is not bad considering it is over the counter. With that being said, this product did not make my skin dry and flaky like some retinol creams do. I have sensitive skin and this retinol treatment didn't cause any problems with my skin. I recommend this for any skin type, as the texture of this is like a light moisturizer. It also doesn't leave a greasy look to the skin. You can purchase this at Algenist.com, sephora, or QVC. However I do want to mention that any over the counter retinol isn't going to get rid of deep wrinkles, only prescription strength retinol can do that. However this is a great serum to help prevent the aging process.
