Algenist has become the latest edition to my skincare regime with the Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Cream and  Vitamin C + SerumAlgenist is a clinical skincare brand from San Fransisco that harnessed a new anti-aging ingredient from Microalgae. This form of algae is one of the oldest and nutrient rich algae in the world. All Algenist products are formulated without Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Dyes, Phthalates, GMOs and Triclosan.

“This advanced, luxurious cream is the best of anti-aging biotechnology. For the first time, this powerful formula combines Alguronic Acid, a patented anti-aging breakthrough with a new source of nourishing oil, Microalgae Oil, and a plant-based collagen, to help visibly restore the skin resiliency and elasticity, delivering a firmer, tighter, more toned appearance. It visibly strengthens the most fragile skin texture and softens facial contours, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles to unveil skin’s youthful radiance.”

My Thoughts:

The first thing that I noticed about this cream was the jello like texture which took me a while to get used to but once I used it a few times it was easy to apply. The second thing I noticed was the fragrance that I wasn’t able to pin point until I started to read other reviews online where people said it reminded them of a vanilla chocolate scent and I think that pretty much describes it. When you first apply the cream you notice the scent but it goes away and you forget that it is there. This cream doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy and has a nice matte finish to it which is great for the summer. I noticed that my skin has been incredibly soft and my pores are minimized. For the first two days I only used the serum and cream on my face but I  felt like I needed that extra layer of moisture so I decided to add a face oil into my regime. After about a week I decided to use this cream strictly at night and switch to a different one during the day. This cream contains some powerful anti-aging ingredients but the only downside is the price point. I think it would be worth buying if you used it strictly at night along with the serum  because a little goes along way and they go hand in hand. The fragrance might bother some people at first so just keep that in mind if you sensitive to certain fragrances.

“For the first time, this powerful formula combines Alguronic Acid, a breakthrough anti-aging ingredient, with nourishing Microalgae Oil and a potent Vitamin C derivative* to help visibly minimize fine lines and wrinkles and reduce the appearance of age spots and discoloration. The most fragile skin texture appears strengthened and skin’s youthful, even radiance is revealed.”

My Thoughts:

I was really excited to try this serum because I wanted some of my facial discolouration along my jaw line to fade and brighten my skin tone. I used this serum on its own for two days and my skin felt a little flaky around my nose area so I decided to combine it with a face oil and avoided applying the serum around my nose. This serum is very powerful and I would almost recommend using it strictly at night time because it can increase your sensitivity to the sun. I noticed that after using it my skin was more sensitive to the sun and I had to apply sunscreen before I went out. I normally wear sunscreen everyday but I just noticed a few more freckles on my nose and my skin felt more sensitive. I did notice an intense exfoliation effect on my skin and a rapid cell turn over. I had some deeply embedded clogged pores around my chin and they finally came to the surface and cleared up. I am also happy to report that my skin tone is more even along my jaw line and I don’t need to wear as much foundation. This serum has a similar scent to the cream so just be aware of that. I would highly recommend this serum if you are looking to exfoliate and brighten your skin tone.

    Ah I love using serums but I don’t like that fact it flaked around your nose – that area is extremely dry for me

    Oohhh, I adore it when beauty products have that Jell-oish texture. I find that my dry skin tends to lap them straight up. Thank you for sharing about these two lovely offerings with us.

    I tried Algenist once, products didn’t smell so good at the beginning beacause they contain algae, but antiaging creams worked so well on my skin. I think it’s a very good brand 🙂
    I love your review…
