Algenist Elevate Firming & Lifting Contouring Serum/ Eye Cream

We'll call this a dynamic duo. Just in time for me to work seriously on my skin as I usually do in Winter, come these two new from Algenist .

 As I get older , I see more of a need for lifting and firming. I know no cream is going to change my skin dramatically and suddenly lift everything where it was 10 years ago but I also know that good skincare is a step in the right direction and can help. So I have been applying the Elevate Serum almost every night for weeks.

Both eye cream and serum have  Alguronic Acid and ProPeptide3 along with gold and apple extract, all things we have been told are tops for skin.  I like that  it's lightly moisturizing, just right for my normal  skin and not heavy.  I can add a moisturizer over it if needed, but for me , just this is  usually  enough. It has a light feel  and sinks in well. 

I feel like my skin looks more clarified and smoother so far.  I am especially into putting this alongside my mouth , those darn marionette lines, that I have just started to notice.   They seem a bit better and I'll take it. 

The one odd thing here is that the serum does some tiny shimmer to it. I use it mainly at night and I need no shimmer then but for day it would be ok. It is very subtle. 

The eye cream  has a lot of moisture but also feels  light on. It's great for these cold  temps to use day and night to soothe  and smooth eye area skin as well as add some firming.

Algenist Elevate Firming & Lifting Contouring Serum is $ 108
Algenist Elevate Firming & Lifting Contouring Eye Cream is $ 72
