Review | Algenist Genius Liquid Collagen

Algenist has created the first ever ABSORBABLE collagen! What does that mean? Well, collagen particles are typically too large to absorbed into the skin but Algenist has found a way to infuse their latest serum with particles small enough to penetrate the skin! This is a revolutionary product in the beauty and skincare industry, it is being strongly supported by Sephora, where this product is sold. 

I was fortunate enough to be invited to the launch party for this revolutionary new product and received a bottle as a gift. At the party, I was able to meet many of the faces behind this biotechnology based company and I could tell how passionate everyone was about their work and the brand. Meeting everyone really puts into perspective how hard this relatively small company works and they were all very excited for the launch of this serum.

The Algenist Genius Liquid Collagen retails for $115.00 USD and is available at Sephora and Algenist.

Let's talk about the beautiful packaging, the glass bottle has a beautiful aqua colored pipette at the top. The best way to draw product from the bottle is to release all the air by pumping down, hold and insert the pipette into the product, then release the pipette. One pipette of this product can easily cover your face and neck.

The serum is a thicker gel consistency, unlike many serums you may have used in the past. The small golden pearls are microalgae oil and when massaged into the skin the serum almost feels "creamy". It's very hydrating but still absorbs quickly without leaving a greasy residue. You will immediately see your skin glow and look very healthy! You will also notice some plumping effects to your skin. This product work great for both day or night and it works beautifully with any skincare routine but of course, it works best with Algenist products.

When I wear it at night, my morning results are amazing! My skin is super fresh and glowing! Although I don't have very deep lines, I am very aware that the lines I do have are starting to get deeper and more noticeable as I age. My recent birthday that has just passed has made me more and more concerned that I am not doing enough to care for my skin. Due to this serum, my fine lines on my forehead and around my mouth have significantly plumped out! My skin feels very hydrated and like advertised, it has a healthy bounce to it! This is definitely the healthiest my skin has looked and I have been so hooked on this product, that despite wanting to use other products,  this is the one product that hasn't changed in my routine! I just can't go without it!

Here's a little look into my Algenist skincare routine for day or night:

I start with the Algenist Splash Hydrating Setting Mist all over my face and then follow up with the Genius Liquid Collagen. Finally, I apply the Splash Absolute Hydration Replenishing Gel Moisturizer and the Complete Eye Renewal Balm.

With my dry skin, my skin drinks up all these products. Dry skin types tend to have more aging skin problems than people with oily skin, so I really like to layer on all the hydration and nutrients I can get. This has routine has really kept my skin looking healthy and youthful!

After using this product for more than 2 months, on and off, I have to say, I have no idea why I ever stop using it. Usually it because I am testing out a new skincare product and I don't want this serum to effect the results of the other skincare product but every time I go back to using this product, I remember why I love it so much! The price may seem like a lot but for the results you can achieve in a short period of time, it's a bargain! My skin has been looking and feeling so healthy. The elasticity has improved so much and it always seems to have a natural glow! I highly recommend this serum for all skin types and ages! I know this is a product that will always (i really mean it!) be in my collection!

  1. Omg algenist liquid collagen is the truth. My skin has never looked so good. I wash my face with Peter Thomas Roth cleanser followed by a Peter Thomas Roth Vitamin C Serum and then I use Algenist Liquid Collagen to plump up the hollows under my eye. I follow this with Oil of Olay Whips Moisturizer. This has made a huge difference in my skin. I immediately saw a difference. Just try 10 days. It’s worth the price !!!
