I am a sucker for a good eye cream, especially one that is a good multi-tasker. Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm [$65] is my new favorite. It’s lightweight but packs a powerful punch thanks to alguronic acid, this is the hallmark of Algenist’s products. Algenist is a biotechnology laboratory out of the Bay Area and while they pursuing renewable energy solutions, they unexpectedly discovered the powerful properties of Alguronic Acid, the bioactive compound available only in Algenist products. Alguronic acid minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and improves the appearance of skin firmness. How great is THAT??
This rich, nourishing eye cream visibly diminishes signs of aging around the eyes, while decreasing the appearance of puffiness and dark circles. Alguronic Acid combined with vitamin C, caffeine, as well as cucumber, aloe and green tea extracts help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and helps nourish and hydrate the eye area for a recharged and rejuvenated appearance.
- Minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Decreases the look of puffiness and dark circles
- Helps nourish and hydrate the eye area
In comparison testing, Alguronic Acid outperformed other well-known active antiaging ingredients, demonstrating superior antiaging benefits. Average results measured following an in vitro test with Alguronic Acid:
– 55% increase in cellular regeneration
– 32% increase in elastin synthesis
– 26% decrease in melanin production
Following a self-assessment of 100 women, within 10 days of daily use:
– 86 % Felt skin density, suppleness, and elasticity was restored
– 93% Felt skin radiance appeared boosted
Within 4 weeks of daily use:
– Deep wrinkles appeared minimized in 78% of subjects.
– Skin appeared noticeably tightened and lifted in 81% of subjects.
My experience is a noticeable smoother appearance around my eyes AND bonus my concealer goes on SUPER smooth as well. The caffeine helps out with dark circles and to increase circulation around the eyes and the cucumber soothes! The best thing I like about this eye cream is that is is SO LIGHTWEIGHT but it does the job of a much heavier eye cream in terms of the results you get.
