This is a brand that we have stocked for many years, but it may have sneaked under your radar so you missed it or thought that it didn’t have a product suitable for you. It’s definitely worth looking at this range that is constantly evolving, and now taking are their skincare technologies into reinventing make-up and colour-correction problems, with many new launches this summer.
Of course they have always been famous because of their own scientific labs bursting into the skincare market with a global discovery of alguronic acid. This is their patented, clinically-proven regenerative skin compound originating from micro-algae.
This skincare range has extended and allows you not just to have the original anti-wrinkle range, of which the hero will always be the concentrated Reconstructing Serum (the one product that is definitely worth adding into your regime if you don’t want to change your skincare), through to the hydrating range including the Splash Absolute Hydration Overnight Sleep Mask. This can instantly rehydrate and drench the skin with that essential alguronic acid ingredient, but also has the make-up technologies mixed in with naturally-pigmented algae used to camouflage and brighten.
You will be seeing many new launches with us, none so more important than the product of the month for July. This Elevate Firming & Lifting Contouring Eye Cream gives instant visible lifting and brightening properties which, even just with the skincare product, can give a better look instantly to the naked skin around the eye. This is a perfect time of year to test it as, during the summer months we wear a lot less make-up, yet the eye ageing problem is at its worst with the damaging effects of the sun. To have an eyeproduct that makes lightweight make-up, self-tanning or tanned skin look fresher and better, as well as counteracting the ageing/slackening problems, is fab. Incidentally, men love the Algenist line as the science very much appeals to them.
This clever formula has a priming feel to it when it goes on that allows make-up to look better (if you wear it). You have an instant surge of moisture and it can give a brighter, more revived and sculpted look around the eye area with continued use. I would definitely recommend this for anyone who has a gravity or crepeing eye problems, including a double lid or a slackened look which often causes the eyes to downturn in the corner with folds.
For best results use twice a day, and if you are trying to play catch-up or you have thirsty eyes, you can get even more results try applying it more than this for a few days and see if you get more results (and whilst its product of the month with a 30 day money back guarantee). This is one of my tips to bring an eye back into good condition if you are not responding to your products – often caused by illness, medication, stress etc. – or sometimes the same application technique that you had when you were 20 is not the same prescriptive technique you need in your 40’s plus.
Although it has instant brightness and blurring properties there is no ashiness so its suitable for all ethnicities.
During the summer months, especially when you are applying any once-a-day sun screens such as Ultrasun, you can do any of the following application techniques:
- Apply all your skincare products including this new eye cream, wait 10 – 15 minutes until your skin is completely dry to the touch again and then apply Ultrasun
- Apply Ultrasun to dry skin first, wait 10 minutes and then apply your skincare on top
- If you are in a rush or it’s a hot, humid day, or you are on holiday, apply your Ultrasun, and then, early evening or off the beach, cleanse and apply your skincare regime (including this product), and then reapply before you go to bed to get the two applications in to see results
