To reverse all the tell-tale signs of aging, apply this lotion to your décolleté regularly.

Algenist

Birchbox Breakdown

Science class was never our strong suit back in our school days. Thankfully for us, the folks at Algenist were taking notes. This cutting-edge lotion earns an A+ in combating the common signs of aging. Designed for all skin types, the lightweight formula reinvigorates damaged skins cells and increases skin’s elasticity. Wear it daily to turn back the clock on your complexion.

How it Works

This super-hydrating lotion improves your skin’s appearance with a three-pronged approach. First, the patented ingredient Alguronic Acid transforms the skin’s surface by repairing damaged skin cells from the inside out. Next, essential Vitamins C and E naturally correct discoloration to reveal an even and noticeably brighter skin tone. Finally, algae extract firms and lifts tired skin. The result? A youthful glow we haven't seen since we were teens.

How to Use

Apply twice daily to a clean face, paying close attention to wrinkles and your jaw-line in order to maximize the firming effects of this lotion.

Why would I want my face to smell like a fish market?

I test moisturizing and anti-aging products on my hands before daring to apply anything to my hyper-sensitive face. This lotion barely made it onto my fingers before I was gagging over the "sea wrack" odor and grabbing for a wipe to get it off my skin. It hadn't smelled pleasant in the bottle, but I never dreamed it would be so offensive when applied! Even the makeup-removing wipe wasn't sufficient; only a thorough scrub with soap and water finally got rid of the stench, and now I'll need cortisone to clear up the rash on my hands from whatever ingredient(s) caused the reaction. I'd rather live with wrinkles.

Wonderful moisturizer

A little goes such a long way! It leaves my skin feeling moisturized without feeling heavy or greasy and I feel it has improved my fine lines. Its very light scent is really nice and my bottle lasted me for months.

Great Lotion

This anti Aging lotion is great. It's lightweight and leaves my skin feeling very smooth. I have definitely noticed a difference in the short time I have been using it.

WoW

Worth the money. I’m in love with this product. It moisturizes without being too heavy, and it soaks right in. People have been commenting on the clarity of my skin, as well as I have been noticing that the soft lines seem to be softening a little. My skin looks much better.

I have been using Algenist for several months now, and I can't say enough about it!! The wrinkles around my eyes are fading, and the sunspots on my cheeks have disappeared! Well worth the price...

Perfect lotion for summer

I have been using the Algenist cream for winter harsh weather and also night time... however this lotion is the best for daily use in the upcoming summer weather.
Algenist is my new favorite!

Good lotion, not amazing anti-aging

Been using about a month as my day lotion. I haven't seen amazing results, but I like the way it feels and smells. It's not heavy, which is good because I have oily skin.

Too expensive unless you snag it for free

I got this free sample and I like it. It's not something I'd buy for myself (I find myself saying that a lot lately for birchbox products) but getting the sample is nice because I've been looking for a nighttime moisturizer and this fits the bill. The smell is kind of funny but it does not linger which I'm sure my boyfriend appreciates. Anyway, skin feels good after application and I'll use it til it's gone. Then maybe try to score another free sample.

Algenist anti-aging lotion

I'm glad I received this in my birchbox. It's a very expensive product and glad that I received a deluxe sample of this. I love how it keeps my sin moisturized. I use it as a night lotion and in the morning my skin looks very hydrated. I also have rosacea and skin sensitivity and did not have any reaction to this. As an anti aging product I didn't see any difference. If it were not such an expensive product I probably would purchase it.
