Algenist’s newest cream is DIVINE!

algenist1

Sometimes I think I’m going to have to invent a new adjective, because I use so many of them on a daily basis. I completely forgot about divine! I’m going to have to use it more often!

If you think we just LOVE everything we try, let me assure you WE DO NOT. We are sent so much stuff every month to test out – and very rarely will we talk about a product we don’t love. If a company emails me back looking for a review, I’ll say “I didn’t like it – you want me telling people that?” I don’t review products I don’t like. The reason I don’t is for one reason and one reason alone…. it didn’t work FOR ME. That doesn’t mean it won’t work for you – it just didn’t work for me. We keep it honest, we keep it real…. and I think that’s what everyone wants, right?

Anyhoo, back to this product here. I’ve been using this lotion since the beginning of January, and I’m absolutely in love with it. My skin is aging (at warp speed, I swear) and so all the help I can give it, I’ll take! This product has really helped my skin tone up and firm up, and makes it look more smooth.

Algenist’s Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Cream

Genius is a scientifically advanced formulation designed to address the signs of aging skin. Youthful suppleness and radiance is restored, skin density is increased, facial contours become more defined and deep wrinkles are visibly minimized leaving skin firmer, softer and smoother. Alguronic Acid is combined with the breakthrough Microalgae Oil to create a powerful and highly active formula which addresses the accelerated signs of aging caused by hormonal changes, environmental stress and the natural aging process.

The actives harnessed in Genius are delivered in a luxurious, emollient formula that instantly absorbs into the skin, softening and smoothing upon contact. Results are apparent in just 10 days, and even more visible after 28 days of usage.

Seriously, GET THIS. I adore it!

Key Benefits

  • Skin appears nourished and radiance boosted
  • Skin resiliency and elasticity appear restored
  • Visibly minimizes fine lines and deep wrinkles
