I recently noticed a new moisturizer by a company called Algenist. It has appeared in fashion magazines such asVogue, Elle, and Marie Claire! It has been mentioned by Dr. Oz and I have even noticed it at Sephora. I wanted to find out what the hype is about so I was thrilled when I received the opportunity to try the Algenist Regenerative Anti-Aging Moisturizer with SPF 20!
Algenist is a unique company with unique products. I find their story interesting:
"A team of biotechnology scientists in San Francisco, California, focused on developing microalgae-based renewable energy solutions, unexpectedly discovered Alguronic Acid, a powerful compound responsible for regenerating and protecting the microalgae cell. When scientifically tested, Alguronic Acid demonstrated significant anti-aging properties, increasing elastin synthesis by up to 32%* and cellular regeneration by up to 55%*.
Leveraging the regenerative power of Alguronic Acid for the first time, Algenist delivers the next level of skincare technology backed by biotechnology expertise and outstanding consumer results.
A fast-absorbing, moisturizing, and protective anti-aging SPF cream formulated with the revolutionary anti-aging ingredient Alguronic Acid to nourish and restore skin moisture while rebuilding firmness and elasticity. The appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and pores is minimized. The skin is regenerated and protected against signs of aging caused by UVA & UVB exposure."
How cool is it that they were focusing on micro-algae-based renewable energy solutions and made unexpected discoveries for skin care?!
As I mentioned, I tried the Algenist Regenerative Anti-Aging Moisturizer with SPF 20. I found that it absorbs quickly and it effectively moisturized my skin. It did not irritate my skin. I like that it not only improves elasticity and firmness, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and regenerates skin, but it also provides protection from UVA and UVB exposure. In the past, most of the products that I have used to improve my skin are for night time use, so I am happy to find that this can be used during the day as it has the UVA and UVB protection! I was also worried about whether a product that is so effective has a strong scent. The scent reminded me of the smell of the beauty aisle in Whole Foods because it seemed like a more natural botanical scent. I don't know if that makes sense to everyone, but I liked it. This would make a wonderful Mother's Day gift!
I am appreciative of the free products that we received for this review. I was not monetarily compensated for this review and all opinions are honest and my own.
