Since Sephora opened I've been exposed to a plethora of new and amazing beauty products which is so exciting. The Algenist brand is from San Fransisco and have a very impressive range of products.
Algenist is a clinical skincare brand delivering anti-aging innovation from Microalgae, one of the oldest and most nutrient-rich algae in the world.
The story of Algenist is deeply rooted in biotechnology expertise from the heart of the biotechnology industry, San Francisco. Scientists behind the brand were studying Microalgae as a source of environmentally sustainable, renewable energy when they came across an unexpected discovery that revolutionised the skincare industry.
While researching microalgae-based renewable energy solutions, a team of scientists uncovered Alguronic Acid, a patented, powerful compound that is responsible for regenerating and protecting the microalgae cell. When scientifically tested, Alguronic Acid demonstrated significant anti-aging properties, helping to rejuvenate the skin for a more youthful appearance.
Renewable and sustainable, Microalgae Oil is sourced from microalgae and is the second patented-pending ingredient to come from Algenist biotechnology. Its rich composition containing Oleic Acid, Phytosterols, Tocopherols and Tocotrienols, deliver superior benefits to the skin, replenishing essential moisture and nutrient loss. Microalgae Oil is clinically proven to keep skin hydrated 5x longer than untreated skin over a 24-hour period.
The Algenist Melting Cleanser
This unique, luxurious melting cleanser is the best of biotechnology and offers an unparalleled sensorial experience. The powerful formula combines both Alguronic Acid and a new source of nourishing oil, Microalgae Oil, to visibly replenish and smooth skin.
This transforming gel cleanser melts into a silky oil when mixed with water, to gently and effectively lift away all traces of long-wearing makeup. Upon contact with water, this lightweight oil turns into a milky emulsion and rinses clean to wash away impurities leaving skin beautifully cleansed, soft and radiant looking.
The Algenist Ultimate Anti-Aging Melting Cleanser is suitable for all skin types and can be used morning and evening. I found this to be the most effective cleanswer to remove makeup in it's entirety.
Complete Eye Renewal Balm
The Complete Eye Renewal Balm is a multi-tasking product designed to minimise the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles, brighten dark circles, reduce puffiness & fatigue, and hydrate, soothe, & nourish the skin.
This rich, nourishing eye cream visibly diminishes signs of aging around the eyes, while decreasing the appearance of puffiness and dark circles. Alguronic Acid combined with vitamin C, caffeine, as well as cucumber, aloe and green tea extracts help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and helps nourish and hydrate the eye area for a recharged and rejuvenated appearance.
The Eye Balm also acts like an eye primer to prepare the eye area for makeup application.
