What makes Algenist a unique brand their use of biotechnology in formulating their products. Algenist uses Microalgae, a nutrient-rich algae in its skincare products. Alguronic acid is the compound that is derived from the microalgae, and it has significant anti-ageng benefits.
The San Franciscan scientists behind the brand were studying Microalgae as a source of environmentally sustainable, renewable energy and discovered that it has unique anti-aging properties. There are also no parabens, sulfates of phthalates in any Algenist products.
Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm with Alguronic Acid and Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil with Microalgae Oil, are great companion products, especially for women in their 20’s. I have purchased both products more than once and don’t see them leaving my cosmetic counter anytime soon.
The Complete Eye Renewal Balm with Alguronic Acid costs $65, and is one of my favorite eye creams for a number of reasons. It is just the right density; it is not too heavy and sinks into the skin nicely, without leaving excess product. I can see results with the product, particularly in the winter months. It also travels well, at 15ml you can easily take this with you on a plane or overnight.
Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil with Microalgae Oil is $79, and works beautifully as an after shower moisturizer. After a shower I will typically put a small amount in the palm of my hand, and massage the product lightly into my face, neck, and chest with my fingertips to help circulate blood flow.
Not to say that this face oil isn’t great any time of day. It is often part of my pre-makeup routine. Although the Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil might not be the best choicce for your inflight cosmetic bag; its 30ml size makes it just the right fit, but it is just too easy to spill if things get bumpy. Keep this product safe on the counter where it belongs.
Both of these product are great for women in their 20’s, because they deliver the results of a high end product with an affordable price point. For those of you who are new to anti-aging creams and serums, this brand is worth a try, and can be purchased at algenist.com or at Sephora. Remember it is never too early to start taking care of your skin.
