It’s not just about your face — the skin on your neck is one of the first places to show age. Apply Algenist Firming & Lifting Cream twice daily to neck and decolletage.

Birchbox Breakdown

In the battle against time, we’ve tried nearly every anti-aging product out there—and nothing beats this sophisticated moisturizer. Powerful enough to go head to head with our deepest lines and wrinkles, it uses a unique microalgae compound to spur the cellular renewal process. And unlike harsh retinoids, it won’t irritate skin and is gentle enough to wear during the day. Formulated for all skin types, it leaves skin firm and glowing. Who can argue with that?

How to Use

Apply to a cleansed face, neck, and décolleté morning and evening.

Another one of my favorite moisturizers. Really feels like it's doing something almost immediately. Highly recommend!

Enjoyed but not stand out
Purchased

What I liked about the product was it was light-weight and applied nicely. However, after about a month of use, I didn't notice much difference in the wrinkles around my eyes and forehead.

Obsessed

I am absolutely obsessed with this moisturizer. I have really dry skin and this is the only face lotion that moisturizes all day. Worth every penny!

So far so good!
Purchased

I just received this product and have only used it twice. what I know this far is that it smells good, not much of a scent. And feels great on. The packaging is nice, looks put together, and is informative! This product is pricey and hope it lives up to that price tag.

Love

I'm always on the lookout for a rich cream for my 50+ skin.
This has a nice creamy texture and the SPF is a bonus. Thanks for the large sample, plenty of product to really give it a good try.

Amazing

Live this product. It smells amazing and feels great. Has a sort of creamy, milky texture. Too expensive though. :/

best moisturizer I've tried

I have acne-prone skin and have tried so many different lotions and creams. They all make me break out. This is the only one that leaves my skin perfectly clear (not to mention brighter and softer and younger-looking). So expensive, but worth it to me.

good moisturizer

i don't really need an anti-aging moisturizer yet, but i still really liked the texture and feel of this cream. it made my skin really soft and did seem to give my skin a healthy, clear glow, but i can't comment on the wrinkle reducing properties. i will definitely remember this brand for future use though and would recommend it.

Nothing too impressive

This definitely quenches thirsty skin and leaves it feeling nice and supple but it felt more like a really good moisturizer than an anti-aging cream. Not bad nonetheless but I probably wouldn't buy it again.

Love this stuff!

This moisturizer goes on smoothly and is not oily. Like the pleasant, not overpowering scent. And better yet, it totally works and I have seen noticeable results.
