Algenist has just introduced its Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Vitamin C+ Serum. Formulated to “minimize the appearance of deep wrinkles and strengthen the most fragile skin texture,” this product also promises to visibly reduce the look of age spots and discoloration. The serum contains micro-algae oil that can help intensely hydrate skin, as well as provide a Vitamin C derivative and plant collagen.

I will say upfront that I am a lover of serums, both for the way they absorb into the skin and their ability to achieve results. So I was excited about trying this one, especially after smelling it. The product contains a distinct aroma of chocolate, which, for me, was a huge plus.

I used this product twice a day, for 10 days, as directed. In the morning, I used along with an SPF 40 product, but at night, I used it alone, and not with a moisturizer (which was suggested) because I did not feel I needed one—the serum was sufficiently rich. It went on easily and absorbed well. And, as I said, the smell was luscious.

After 10 days, I can’t say I noticed any change in the wrinkle or dark spot situation (the latter a result of many foolish hours spent baking in the sun slathered in baby oil and armed with a tanning reflector—yikes!), but I did see a nice effect on my dull and dry winter skin, especially after using the serum at night. I woke up to a fresh, revitalized look, and my skin felt both soft and supple. So while it did not fulfill all of its claims, this is a good, solid product that yields a more than satisfactory result.
