Algenist is a clinical skincare and make-up brand from San Fransisco with a variety of anti-aging products and ingredients that might sound complicated but actually, deliver what they promise.
Anti-aging is probably one of the most asked for products for skincare, because frankly who doesn’t like plumper skin? As we age the collagen breaks down, and there is no away of reversing that process, so plumping the skin from the inside out can help minimise signs of aging while increasing hydration.
All of their products are created using innovative techniques with Microalgae, which is one of the nutrient-rich algae in the world. Founded in America in Silicon Valley, science and technology is in the epicentre of the brand. One of their most important ingredient discovery is the patented alguronic acid which promises to deliver anti-aging results within 10 days. In nature, it’s very powerful in regenerating the microalgae.

What’s also great is that all their products are non-comedogenic, so they will not block your pores, and hypoallergenic, as well as created without parabens, GMOs and sulfates.
The Elevate Advanced Lift Contouring Cream is the perfect choice if you don’t want to add another step to your skincare routine, but want to see results. It will work while you sleep which is great, as the skin is known to regenerate while you are sleeping. The main ingredients are of course alguronic acid, tripeptide-2; which promotes firmer skin, and gold; which helps with the peptides’ strength and activity to help skin texture and tone.
The whipped cream texture is lightweight and doesn’t feel greasy. “10 minutes to firm. 10 days to sculpt” – the promise to plumper, smoother and more contoured appearance!
I have tried it a couple of times now and the formulation is rich but light at the same time, leaving my skin hydrated and definitely looks plumper by morning. To me, this is a perfect overnight treatment for when it’s colder and my skin needs the extra hydration. Would definitely recommend, especially to combat fine lines and achieve a plumper skin.
