Quoted Text
Genoma Eye Crème includes Lupine protein, which stimulates cellular activity and renews the stratum corneum, the outer-most layer of the epidermis. Alfalfa seed supports the synthesis of collagen, Myrtle limits the skin aging process, which is induced by oxidative stress. These ingredients are enhanced by the inclusion of Sea Fennel (Chrithmum maritimum), which works much the same way as retinoids but does not induce the inflammatory response generally associated with them. Additionally, Sea Fennel works to stimulate cell renewal, which increases the thickness of the skin.

Dry ginger smell oxidized to me, I like better the fresh sliced or grated one and  also the fruit scent or smell in candies, teas and toiletries are often awful to my nose, the fresh fruit rules and cooked fruit is less tasty for me.
The coconut scent is always all chemical not natural extracted, as per  my aromatherapy books . I could ate as a girl coconut and coconut flour cookies but  I find fake coconut scent nearly disgusting.

Narnia, I recently switched to a product with no scent at all and all natural ingredients. It's called madara. I use this daycream: http://www.naturisimo.com/products.cfm?id=840&type=Moisturisers&nme=mad&skincare=1

Perhaps something for you?

Thank you!  I went to the site, but it took pounds and not dollars, so I see that it's overseas.

I may have to search to find them in the US.

Narnia,

To see if you are reacting to the smell or the actual application of the cream, have you considered putting it on outside on a breezy day?  You could make an artificial breeze with a fan blowing towards you.

Just an idea for a test.

The breeze will dry/fan away the scent rather quickly.  Once the product is dry, it doesn't give off much scent.

I had tried applying the cream and holding my face in front of an ozone generator while holding my breath.  Even then, the scent didn't go away enough for comfort.

I may give it another try since my immune system seems to be improving.

My experience with the Genoma skincare products is so positive!
When I started the scent was strong and the first effect was adstringent to my skin.
After a few days of use I was used to the scent and my skin has never been softer and in balance. No more dryness and other irritations.

Received from the NAP4EU some awesome Genoma leaflets titled: Food for your Skin.
Indeed it is food.. My skin won't do without Genoma anymore..

Together with natural haircare (no more chemicals to dye my hair) and 100% natural shampoo and conditioner, my eczema on my skull is completely vanished..   

Take care and stay well!

I continue to be impressed with the Genoma cremes also, RhodaMaria.  I have used natural bodycare products for the past 20 years, so I didn't really think this line would make any difference.  I was very surprised.  One of the things I've noticed is that all my adult life, my facial skin has been so dry, it has been necessary to use very rich natural moisturizers after bathing, because creams that vanished were never enough to keep my skin from drying out.

The Genoma Cremes disappear very quickly, but the soft, moist feel of my skin does not.    The lines in my face are noticeably fewer and lighter.  When I touch my face, it feels like it did 25 years ago.

I agree with Vicki.  I only smell the light natural oils when I first apply it.  After a few minutes, the smell is completely gone.

I am very happy with the performance of the Genoma skin care - it is the only regimen that healed me of chronic whiteheads (I also use a mild daily exfoliant - that's the only element the Genoma line is missing).

I find the scent from the botanicals very aromatic - meaning - yeah, it's got a big presence when you first put it on, but it doesn't last long.  Natural botanicals smell like natural botanicals!  

Can someone tell me what the "expiration date" is for these products? I bought the 4 pack and am very happy - since they are on sale right now (November only, I assume) I am tempted to buy the 5-pack, but I don't want to risk it going bad on the shelf before I get to it!  Thanks a bunch!

Back in September I was using a different natural product (see earlier post). It was good, but no where near as good as Genoma. I now also have the cleanser and the Toner. I am truly amazed at the results of these products. Were my pigmentation spots first disappearing, now they are almost completely gone.

Narnia, maybe the toner is something you can use. I didn't smell a thing when I sprayed it on and you don't have to use the daycream after it.

I don't know the expiration date, but I'm on my third round of the products.  I'm using them sparingly and they are staying fresh.  My second order included a couple of bottles of one product and I kept the extra in the fridge until I was ready to start using it . . just to be safe.

I purchased Genoma about January this year.  I used the cleanser, day moisturizer and night moisturizer.  The smell was great.  I loved the way it felt on my skin.  Then after a short time, I can't remember how long, my skin started to itch badly, then it started to burn, then it peeled.  I attributed it to dust mites or something like that.  I went on a mite killing spree, but things didn't get better.  Finally, I thought about discontinuing use of Genoma.  Things got better, but I was not sure which to attribute it to.  Yesterday, I decided to give a try to the products again to see.  I cleansed, used the day cream, later cleansed, used the night cream.  This morning while reading email trying to wake up, my face and neck were itching terribly. Instinctively, I started going over in my mind what I could have eaten yesterday.  I got up an hour or so later and looked in the mirror.  Exactly where I apply the products, my face looks beet red and feels like it is on fire.  Reactions like these are not uncommon for me.  I had to go without makeup for years because of reactions.  I found out i had a hormone deficiency, then I was fine again.  Maybe it is my nonnie-ness?  I am wondering if this could be a good reaction.  Maybe something needs burning/detoxed from my skin?

I've never had any discomfort from either of the cremes, but I've noticed that the cleanser really seems to increase circulation to the surface of the skin.  My skin would be a little pink if I left it on a long time.  If you're curious, try leaving that off and just using the cremes just to see what happens.

For some reason, I suspect the night cream.  It seems like I used the cleanser and day cream and was ok.  I think I ordered the night cream a little later.  That could explain why I didn't react at first.  I am not sure, but I am so bad right now that I am taking a benadryl and going to lay down.  I haven't taken that stuff in years.  I don't like it, but my face is on fire and I am a little short of breath.  It is just me.  My skin has always reacted to many things.  Back to my olive oil soap.  I love the cleanser and day cream.  If I am brave enough, I might try them again.

I have been using the cleanser, toner, day cream, eye cream and night cream for a few months and love them. My skin feels fresh, clean and hydrated. I just started taking the genoma derma tablet, also.
I just wish they were "on sale" more often!

I am not too fussy on the containers. The lids fall off easy and the bottles are tippy and when they tip, the lids crack easily. They do not travel well. Come open in the luggage. I also prefer containers that you can see when you are getting low on a product. I am not sure if the product was the source of my acne problem or due to detox. Stopped using it and have been using mms topically and it is almost entirely cleared up. Will give the product another try again and see.

Quoted from maukik
I am taking a benadryl and going to lay down.


Benadryl didn't help at all.  My face and neck are puffy, very red, and still burning.  It must be a "chemical burn".  I believe that is what happened last time only not as rapidly.  My whole face peeled last time.  I am sure it is going to happen again.  I should end up with very nice, smooth skin.

Mine lasts for more than 2 months, maybe 3.  I don't slather it on like department store lotions.  It's like nectar -- a little goes a long way.

I also find these products lasts a very long time, around 3 months. The cleanser seems to last the longest and the toner goes first. I think I use a normal amount.

What's the best to buy if one is on a limited budget?

What if I just go the day cream, night cream and eye cream?  I'm over 50 now and pretty sure I'm headed to menopause so I want to start using some really good products that will help the collagen.

Thanks all!
