According to Algenist, their proprietary accidental “discovery,” algae-based Alguronic Acid, is a revolutionary age fighter. Unfortunately, their tests were conducted in vitro rather than in the real world using a large enough sample size to be accurate. Their “self –assessment” of 100 women just doesn’t cut it. Needless to say, since the product sells so well, I figured there must be something to it.
I didn’t notice the decreased puffiness and reduced circles that were promised, but it did moisturize quite well without leaving me greasy. As most people know, simply adding quality moisture is the key to a better appearance. While it was a nice product, it just wasn’t worth the price tag for a simple moisturizer. Some people swear by this stuff, and I can’t say that it’s a bad product. I just won’t be repurchasing it personally.
Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm retails for $65.00 for 0.50 oz.
