One of the awesome perks of being a VIB rouge member at Sephora is that you get the privilege of trying out products you would otherwise would have not for numerous reasons; either for reason of a hefty price tag or for simply being a product which might have not been on the radar for you. Recently, I got a few generous sized deluxe sample by redeeming my points from the popular brand Algenist. With skin care items, it’s really a hit or miss hence I loved being able to give a product a go before deciding whether it was worth the splurge for the full size ; and a splurge it indeed is.
Read on to know more about my thought on the Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti Ageing cream.
About The Product:
An advanced antiaging cream which, for the first time, fuses alguronic acid and the new breakthrough microalgae oil.
What it is formulated to do:
This advanced, luxurious cream features the best in antiaging biotechnology. For the first time, this powerful formula combines alguronic acid—a patented antiaging breakthrough—with a new source of nourishing oil, microalgae oil, and a plant-based collagen. This potent fusion helps restore skin resiliency and elasticity, delivering a firmer, tighter, more toned appearance. It strengthens the most fragile skin texture, softens facial contours, visibly minimizes fine lines and deep wrinkles, and unveils skin’s youthful radiance.

-Plant-derived Collagen: Reinforces skin structure and supports natural skin matrix.
Price: $110 for full size :O
My Expereince with Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-aging Cream:
I have been using this generous-sized deluxe sample for a little more than a month and have enough to last me another week hence I can say I have thoroughly assessed this product and weighed all the pros and cons.
It comes in a tub packaging which I am not a fan of due to hygienic reasons. I usually prefer products in a pump or squeeze tube as the minimal contact with air also helps the ingredients remain stable.
This product has a thick whipped consistency like Greek Yogurt. It spread easily and literally melts into your skin upon contact. A little bit goes a long way and I use this cream everyday as a part of my night time skin care regiment.
Feel on Skin & Results:
This cream does not feel heavy on the skin at all nor does it give a super greasy or sticky feel. It gives a light dewiness to the skin, hence I only use this at night time and not under my makeup.
With continuous use of this product, I have definitely seen visible improvements in my skin. My skin is usually dry, dehydrated and dull. I haven’t suffered from a single dry patch on my skin since I started using this cream. My skin has become more supple and soft.. I definitely saw improvement in the elasticity of my skin. My skin truly felt firmer and toned. I am still in my mid 20s so I cannot support the claims of these reducing wrinkles. I have not seen any reduction in acne marks, it did not even out or my skin tone but it never claimed to do any of that.
This cream is not fragrance-free. It has a very light fresh scent which I like and it is not bothersome or overwhelming.
Overall, yes I am truly impressed with this cream. The helps my skin feel more youthful and supple and firm. The only thing that hinders me from purchasing a full size of this is a whopping $110 price tag. I am not sure I will be spending so much on 1 item but if I had to recommend this cream I most definitely will.
Pros of Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-aging Cream:

• Leaves a beautiful dewy/Glowy finish
• Does not feel greasy or heavy
• Very lightweight and absorbs instantly
• Skin feels more firm and toned with regular use
Cons of Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-aging Cream:
• Very very expensive
