I HAVE USED THIS PRODUCT FOR 2 DAYS ALONG WITH THE SERUM AND MOISTURIZER, MY FACE SEEMS TO HAVE DRIED OUT AND SHOWS MORE WRINKLES. IS THIS PRODUCT FOR OILY SKIN ONLY?

This product will not dry you because it contains Aulgoronic Acid, Oat Amino Acids and Witch Hazel which help condition and soften the skin.

I didn't have good luck with the serum. I do use the overnight cream at night and the firming and toning during the day. I returned the serum because I thought I noticed it was starting to clog my pores.

I'm a big Algenist fan and I feel it doesn't require any serums so I don't use any. I don't know how, but possibly the combination somehow is drying your skin - Algenist is very hydrating for me. I use the eye gel and once used a serum and cream -- whoa - too much can be NOT good - so that may be the problem but I'm not sure - it's just a suggestion - try leaving the serum out.

I have oily skin and I find that sometimes it can dry out my skin. I've only been using this since summer, so fall/winter will tell me. Right now if my skin feels dry I'll alternate it with Cliniques liquid facial soap (only because I still have 1/2 a bottle).

Most new product will dry out the skin. In the beginning this dried my skin too, but I stuck with it and my skin has never looked better. The dryness went away and my skin looks very healthy.

answer 8
I have an oily T-zone, but my cheeks are super dry. I haven't experienced a problem with my skin drying out from these products. Instead it has seemed to balance the PH of my skin. If you feel dry though, I would recommend trying another product or adding something to your current routine to increase moisture levels.

Only if its minimal eye makeup. I would think it would irritate if you just used it as an eye removal cream

I wouldn't count on this to remove my eye-make up - personally I remove it with eye-make up remover then wash with Algenist. Then again this would depend on how much eye make up you use, too and whether or not it's a very waterproof or water-resistant kind .... but if you're counting on a cleanser to remove most eye make up (mine are usually waterproof or resistant) then I would use Fresh's Soy Facial Cleanser. I was surprised at how much eye make-up came off one night when I was so tired I didn't care if I left my eye make up on - but that cleanser took it off.

This product does't mineral oil which can cause breakouts. Otherwise if you don't consistently wash your face day and night your skin will naturally purge but not because of the quality of the product but because your skin wants to release all the toxins in your pores.

Is this oil free?
I'm getting lash extensions and can only use oil free cleanser on my face. Does anyone know if this is oil free? I looked at the list of ingredients and didn't see anything that had the work "oil" in it but you never know.

Does this get very foamy?
I need a cleanser that delivers a lot of lather and foam. I disliked the Philosophy Purity cleanser because it didn't foam up. How foamy is this?
