Algenist is a fairly new brand of skincare that I was introduced to last year. I really loved the products that I have used (see my review at http://tinyurl.com/72b6eqg) so I was excited to try their new Firming & Lifting Cream ($94 USD)!
This product is an ultra-firming and restructuring cream that tightens and lifts while reinforcing skin structure. The claim is that it leverages the power of alguronic acid and ProPeptide3. Brought together in a never-before-seen antiaging complex, these ingredients boost production of skin’s key structural proteins: elastin, collagen, and proteoglycans. As it strengthens skin’s structure, this advanced formula redefines facial contours, leaving skin smooth, sculpted, and lifted.
Algenist Firming and lifting cream contains This cream also contains avocado oil, phytosterols, and olive fruit oil to moisturize and nourish the skin. It is dermatologist tested, ophthalmologist tested, for all skin types, hypoallergenic, non-irritating, non-comedogenic, and not tested on animals. It does not contain parabens, sulfates, sythetic dyes, petrochemicals, phthalates or triclosan.
What I think: The texture of this cream is very thick, like a butter or a balm. But it is not greasy once applied. I have been using it morning and night for a couple of weeks on my face and neck.
My skin looks good, but I don’t know how much firmer it is. I’m lucky not to have sagging skin (yet), but I do like the moisture this gives my skin and my neck is smooth. I will continue using this every day to prevent sagging skin.
