- What it is: An advanced microdermabrasion peel that resurfaces the skin texture and tone.
- What it is formulated WITHOUT: – Parabens – Sulfates – Synthetic Fragrances – Synthetic Dyes – Phthalates – GMOs – Triclosan
- This product is for all skin types, dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic, non-irritating, non-comedogenic, and not tested on animals.
- What it is formulated to do: This microdermabrasion peel contains a 10 percent acid duo (patent-pending alguronic acid and glycolic acid) in a potent combination with a 10 percent fruit enzyme complex and micro polishing crystals to immediately transform skin texture and tone. The acid duo and fruit enzyme complex work deep into the epidermis to dissolve the smaller skin-dulling cells and regenerate smoother, more even skin underneath. As cell turnover is stimulated, the active formula exfoliates and resurfaces, correcting skin imperfections and instantly improving texture and tone for smoother, brighter, more radiant skin.
- What else you need to know: Alguronic Acid is a powerful compound responsible for regenerating and protecting the microalgae cell. This unique ingredient was unexpectedly discovered by a team of biotechnology scientists in San Francisco while researching microalgae for renewable energy solutions. When scientifically tested, Alguronic Acid demonstrated significant antiaging properties: increasing elastin synthesis and cellular regeneration. Algenist is the only line of skincare products to contain the antiaging power of Alguronic Acid.
Really good product!
I was nervous about trying this product. I have very sensitive skin, and it smells very medicinal. I associate that smell with pain on my face. However, I have been very pleasantly surprised! This did not irritate my skin at all, and my skin definitely feels smooth after use. I have used this product three times, all at night, and I can tell a difference the next morning- things just look a little brighter and if I had a breakout, it looks less irritated.(This review also seen on my blog- […]
I like it!
I’ve been using this product a couple times a week for a few weeks now. I’m not sure if it’s a result of this product alone or the combination of products that I’ve been using but I do feel like there’s a glow to my skin that wasn’t there before. I don’t really think the product has reduced the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles like I hoped it would but I do like the feeling that it’s cleaning my skin more than just washing would. For the price on Amazon compared to other places I’ve seen it, it certainly seems worth using!
Caused Red Bumps
I am a huge fan of Algenist, in fact I love their product so much I did a video on you tube and forwarded it to the company. I don’t recall how I got this sample but tried it the other day, and when I put it on my face, not more than 30 seconds had passed and my face felt like it was on fire. I immediately washed it off, only to be left with huge red bumps that resemble blisters along my temples, cheeks and area near my nose. From the reviews I’ve read, many people have liked this product and I really don’t want to lower their rating by giving it one star, but this product reeked such havoc on my face, I have to give it that rating. I would never tell anyone not to purchase this, but if you do purchase it, please get the travel size to test it out for yourself, since these products are extremely costly.
Don’t waste your money
I bought this product after reading about it in a well known beauty magazine and I have to say I am VERY disappointed. I literally have not seen one change in my skin after using the product. I have used it diligently, and per the instructions, and I see zero benefit. I would definitely not buy this product again. My skin is normal to dry.
I got a sample of this with a purchase for something else and loved it so much I had to order some. My skin is super sensitive and everything makes me red and some peels leave me with like burned looking skin. This somehow magically takes away only dead skin without burning into live skin. Leaves skin super smooth. Worth a splurge.
