Algenist Oil and Moisturizer {Review}

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

These winter blues sure have my skin in a tizzy. It seems that with the combination of dry winter cold and warm heaters constantly blowing, that my face has taken a huge turn for the worse. Add in pregnancy hormones, and the tri-fecta is complete.

Let me backtrack for a moment. My entire life, my skin has been unruly. It’s dryness mixed with random breakouts that looked like they wanted to graffiti everything in sight, are enough to drive any one crazy. Add to that the three pregnancies in the last five years, and you will find that my skin is one big problem, or so I thought, that is,  until I consulted a fellow makeup artist about my woes and she swore up and down that Algenist was the only way to go. Apparently the biggest problem with my face was exactly what I had always believed to be the opposite. My face was so dry that it caused breakouts. Who knew? Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, I am getting close to the big 3-0, so I bucked up and decided that it was high time to start taking care of my face.


I was introduced to Algenist by a consultant, and immediately I was hooked. Algenist is created using the newest technology in Alguronic Acid. This powerful compound derived from Micro-alge is found to not only be anti aging, but also evens skin tones and creates firmness where there once was one. So those deep set elevens from nights of missed sleep? Yea, those are becoming way less obvious.

What I thought was neat, is that Algenist has an option for any type of skin concern. For instance, the Gel Moisturizer was much more effective that any other moisturizer that I have tried  on my ultra dry skin, because it absorbed quickly and didn’t leave a greasy residue. With that I added a few drops of the Anti- Aging restorative oil to lock in moisture for up to 24 hours, and boom…I’ve been hooked ever since.


Using these two products after cleansing twice a day has made a major difference in not only the health of my skin, but also it has eliminated my breakouts and decreased the wrinkles that I had previously denied even having. I hearby declare, Algenist Gel Moisturizer and Algenist Anti-Aging restorative oil a success {gavel slams}!

To purchase Algenist products based upon your individual skin needs visit their Official Store and also check out their Facebook page for new product updates, information and more.  Algenist products are also sold in Sephora stores across the US.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free. Regardless, I only recommend products or services that I personally adore and think that you (the reader) will enjoy as well.
