What is Alguronic Acid? I recently found myself wondering the same thing. On one of my recent trips to Sephora I came across Algenist products. That is when one of the associates came over and told me a little bit about the main ingredient, Alguronic Acid.
Alguronic Acid is a powerful compound that is responsible for regenerating and protecting the microalgae cell. When scientifically tested, Alguronic Acid demonstrated significant anti-aging properties, helping to rejuvenate the skin for a more youthful appearance. In addition to Alguronic Acid, Algentist products also contain algaprotein. It is rich in essential amino acids and anti-oxidants. This is a key ingredient in improving the skins firmness and elasticity. Not only that, but it also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while visibly improving overall texture. And lastly, Microalgae Oil, sourced from microalgae, and is the second patented-pending ingredient to come from Algenist biotechnology. It provides superior benefits to the skin, replenishing essential moisture and nutrient loss. Microalgae Oil is clinically proven to keep skin hydrated 5x longer than untreated skin over a 24-hour period.
After I finished hearing everything she had to tell me, I was ready. I knew I had to try something from the skincare line, I just didn’t know what. I knew I wanted something hydrating, but I also needed it to provide superior anti-aging benefits. Finally, I decided to go with the Pure GENIUS Collection Kit. This was the best deal because it comes with four separate products:
GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Eye Cream
- Nourishes, smooths and visibly reinforces skin resilience
- Appearance of expression lines and wrinkles is reduced
- Skin tone appears evened out for brighter-looking eyes
- Skin texture is visibly improved
- Under-eye sagging is visibly minimized
The GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Eye Cream delivers unparalleled benefits through a combination of Alguronic Acid and Microalgae Oil. Not only will this cream increase skin’s smoothness, but it will deliver smoother looking skin. In addition, Microalgae Oil also works to replenish the eye contour moisture while improving the skin’s luminosity. These two ingredients joined with a plant-based collagen and a persian silk tree extract, visibly firm and lift the upper eyelid, nourish and smooth skin for a 360 degree action around the delicate eye area. Eyes appear refreshed with lines and wrinkles visibly lessened.
GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Cream

This advanced, luxurious cream is the best of anti-aging biotechnology. For the first time, this powerful formula combines Alguronic Acid, a patented anti-aging breakthrough with a new source of nourishing oil, Microalgae Oil, and a plant-based collagen, to help visibly restore the skin resiliency and elasticity, delivering a firmer, tighter, more toned appearance. It visibly strengthens the most fragile skin texture and softens facial contours, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles to unveil skin’s youthful radiance.
GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Melting Cleanser

This unique, luxurious melting cleanser is the best of biotechnology and offers an unparalleled sensorial experience.

Upon contact with water, this lightweight oil turns into a milky emulsion and rinses clean to wash away impurities leaving skin beautifully cleansed, soft and radiant looking. This new cleansing sensation delivers an unparalleled sensorial experience.
GENIUS Liquid Collagen (My Favorite!)
- First ever vegan, plant-based collagen formulation with the highest concentration of active collagen.
- Helps condition the skin to visibly improve resiliency and bounce.
- 13,000 beads of Microalgae Oil in every bottle hydrates, nourishes, and visibly restores skin’s radiance.
GENIUS Liquid Collagen™ contains a unique formula of vegan, plant collagen and Microalgae Oil beads. The beads help to restore skin’s bounce and resilience in just 10 days. Plant collagen is a new innovative technology created by binding together corn, soy and wheat protein fibers. The result yields vegan amino acids that structurally mimic collagen and allow for a functional equivalent to animal-derived collagen. Each bottle contains over 13,000 beads of Microalgae Oil, which is extremely rich in Omega 3 and Vitamin E.

- After cleansing, apply GENIUS Liquid Collagen to the entire face and neck.
- Apply GENIUS Eye Cream around the eyes in gentle patting motions.
- Lastly, apply GENIUS Cream to the entire face and neck.
I am so happy with the results I am seeing! Not only does my skin look smoother, but any fine lines I once had are almost invisible! I just cannot believe my eyes! Never did I ever expect to see such dramatic results in such a short period of time. I probably should have mentioned this before, but I have only been using my kit for SEVEN days! The results I am experiencing have only made me want to try more Algenist products. Before, I just didn’t know what all the hype was about and now I see it for myself. I even did my own research into Alguronic Acid and learned that it is more effective than Retinol, Vitamin C, and Hylauronic Acid. Previously, I had been using all three of these products.
The main changes I see are:
- Smoother and softer skin
- Increased hydration
- Increased firmness of skin
- Decrease in fine lines
Without a doubt, I will definitely be using more products made by Algenist!!! I am so amazed by my results and I really believe that I will see greater benefits with long-term use. I encourage everyone reading this to try it out. It may not be for everyone, but there are many more products in their skincare line so I’m sure you will find something suitable for your skin.
In addition to skincare, Algenist has a makeup line as well. I just can’t wait to try more products and share my thoughts with you guys. Stay tuned for more reviews! I hope you guys enjoyed this post and try these products out. I promise you will love them. Thank you for reading!
