Algenist Pore Corrector Anti-Aging Primer hides flaws instantly and uses firming and exfoliating ingredients to tighten pores long term.
The Worldwide Buzz
See who’s talking about Algenist and the breakthrough anti-aging skincare ingredient: Alguronic Acid.
Multi-Perfecting Pore Corrector Concentrate: Made with Alguronic Acid (a compound derived from algae), this toner tightens pores and smooths roughness.
Seaweed-based Alguronic Acid and clay remove impurities to help prevent pores from getting clogged and stretched out.
Algae-derived Alguronic Acid is said to increase cell turnover, promoting firm, wrinkle-free skin over time, while avocado oil and olive oil provide quick hit of moisture.
It's like microdermabrasion in a tube: After it sat on our face for five minutes, our skin was brighter and smoother. Though the enzymes in the formula have anti-inflammatory properties, massage this peel gently onto skin. If you're too rough, you could end up with splotches.
This hydrating, soothing gem is from a company whose products are all the result of hardcore scientific research with microalgae. Yes, algae.
A protective and nourishing shield surrounds every algae cell, and new research shows that when applied topically, algae can protect human skin, too. Many tests (and a patented extraction method) later, we have alguronic acid, available only in Algenist skincare products.
If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to take better care of your skin (if it’s not, it should be), then look no further than Algenist Anti-Aging Moisturizer with SPF 20. It protects against the sun without having to remember that extra layer of sunscreen. Plus, the anti-aging will help keep your youthful good looks intact throughout 2013.
This local brand is a new addition to my beauty routine. Senior Editor Katie Hintz-Zambrano first told me about Algenist and boy, am I glad she did. Made by a team of biotechnology scientists in South San Francisco, the moisturizer’s texture is sleek, clean, and super restorative.
I'm happy to tell you there is a needle-free way to soften the look of those "elevens" (that's what dermatologists call them). Because celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff works wonders with makeup (and eschews needles herself), I asked her about the techniques she might use.
