Algenist's new Firming and Lifting Eye Gel was my intro to the brand. I'd heard good things but hadn't yet tried anything. Founded by a biotechnology lab in San Francisco, the line uses their discovery, patent pending Alguronic Acid, which comes from sea algae that they found to be regenerative to skin.
As intro's go, it was a good one. For one thing, the eye cream/serum search is always on. I have a couple favorites right now but I am always happy to find new and great ones .
Algenist delivers on the firming . After applying you feel a little tightening on the eye area. Not a lot and nothing unconfortable, but just enough so that you feel it's working. It's lightly moisturizing , feels great on the eyes and is very refreshing. This makes it especially nice for day use but the refreshing factor is nice on tired eyes at night as well.
Other ingredients include ProPeptide which combines peptides and the proteins of elastin, collagen and proteoglycans, chamomile and alfalfa , both known to be anti -inflammatory as well as caffeine.
I can see that this will be my summer eye gel. It's not too heavy for hot days but just enough . Sticking it in the fridge will make it even better.
The Firming and Lifting Eye Gel is $ 68 and exclusive to www.sephora.com
