The entire Algenist brand is based on a single ingredient that claims to have superior benefits for skin; Microalgae. “Scientists behind the brand were studying Microalgaes as a source of environmentally sustainable, renewable energy when they came across an unexpected discovery that revolutionized the skincare industry. The Genius of Algae”
The combination of Microalgae and Alguronic Acid are responsible for generating and protecting skin cells and have superior anti-aging properties. All of their products are formulated without parabens, sulfates, GMOs, synthetic dyes, triclosan and phthalates. The more and more I read about best practices on keeping your skin healthy and youthful, the more I find on the benefits of using anti-aging products well before you actually NEED them.
At 27, wrinkles aren’t at all a concern of mine. So, is using anti-aging skincare in my 20’s actually necessary? Well, depending on your skin type and specific concerns and of course your budget, that’s for you to decide. This is a luxury skincare line, and definitely a splurge for some, but it’s worth researching their full collection to find what will work best for your specific needs. I do believe that these products have made a difference in my skin for the better over the course of the last few weeks. And, I’m also a believer in investing into your skincare routine, you’ll definitely thank yourself later.
Retinol Firming & Lifting Serum .:. Again, I don’t have any wrinkles or noticeable fine lines, but I do notice a difference in the texture and firmness of my skin after using this. It’s subtle but I feel a difference and like that the formula is light and sensitive skin friendly.
Reveal Green Color Correcting Drops .:. Color correcting has gained a lot of attention in the beauty community the past few months and is a great way to “correct” your imperfections. One of my skin concerns (and biggest insecurities) is having uneven, red skin. I do everything in my power to cover it up and blend everything seamlessly so it goes unnoticed. This helps. A few drops of this applied before foundation helps cover the redness and helps me avoid over using my foundation & concealer. It’s a really light, liquid formula and doesn’t feel like your even adding another layer of product. I’m inclined to try their other colors as well!
Power Advanced Wrinkle Fighter Serum .:. Even though wrinkles aren’t currently an issue, I’m glad I didn’t look past this serum. I like using it at night after cleansing and before moisturizing. It applies like a lotion but doesn’t feel as thick or heavy.
Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Cream .:. Alguronic acid + microalgae oil. This cream feels super luxurious and nourishing. I notice a big difference in the firmness, elasticity and overall texture in my skin since using this. This is works well with any skin type and as someone with oily skin, I am picky with moisturizers, and this one makes the cut. This cream compliments the rest of the collection and leaves my skin incredibly soft and radiant.
Complete Eye Renewal Balm .:. I’ve been addicted to eye creams/balms and using them both morning & night. I love how moisturizing and soothing this feels. It’s a powerful combination of alguronic acid, vitamin C to boost radiance, caffeine to reduce puffiness and cucumber extract to soothe & nourish.
