Algenist quickly became one of my favorite skincare brands when I first started using their products about 8 years ago. I explored much of Algenist’s selection over the years and many of their products visibly made a difference to my skin. This post features all the products I personally love and feel are worth the splurge!

Skincare is deeply personal and very different for everyone so do keep that in mind when reading my and anyone else’s experiences and recommendations. That said, I have combination skin – meaning parts of my skin are dry and other parts are oily. I also have some parts that are normal. Now, onto my favorite Algenist products!

GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Melting Cleanser – $38
This non-drying, rich melting cleanser is the best of biotechnology and offers an unparalleled sensorial experience. The powerful formula combines both alguronic acid, a patented antiaging breakthrough, and microalgae oil, a new source of nourishing oil, to visibly replenish and smooth skin. This transforming cleanser melts into a silky oil to lift away all traces of long-wearing makeup gently and effectively. Upon contact with water, this lightweight oil turns into a milky emulsion and rinses clean to wash away impurities, leaving skin beautifully cleansed, soft, and radiant-looking.
I love this cleanser because it’s super gentle yet removes makeup and all impurities like a dream!
GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Eye Cream – $78
The GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Eye Cream is a potent, antiaging blend of actives for brighter, younger-looking eyes. Powered by alguronic acid, plant collagen, persian silk tree extract, and kigelia africana fruit extract, this creamy treatment visibly firms and lifts the upper eyelid, improves elasticity, and smooths fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area. The eyes are given a hydrated, conditioned, wide-eyed look.
This is one of the first eye creams I ever used and I always go back to it. This Algenist eye cream keeps my under eyes hydrated and smooth.
GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Cream – $112
This dermatologist-tested, non-comedogenic, and ultra-nurturing daily moisturizer infuses skin with a blend of actives including patented alguronic acid, vegan collagen, and microalgae oil to visibly brighten, hydrate, firm, lift, improve elasticity, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles—resulting in a youthful glow.
Another one of the first Algenist products I tried and what I really love about this moisturizer is that it leaves my skin feeling soft, plump, and so healthy!
GENIUS Liquid Collagen Lip – $35
This unique dual-phase lip treatment is formulated with exclusive alguronic acid, Active Vegan Collagen™, hundreds of microalgae oil beads, and botanical lip enhancers to improve lip definition—smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for an enhanced, fuller-looking lip area.
This is definitely a product I purchase when I’m in the mood to splurge. It’s not a necessity but gosh, it works so nicely! I use this day and night and it makes my lips super smooth, plump, and overall healthy.
GENIUS Sleeping Collagen – $98
Sleeping Collagen works overnight, during skin’s optimal recovery time. With exclusive alguronic acid, Active Vegan Collagen™, skin-mimicking ceramides, and Mary Thistle—skin is left more hydrated, softer, supple, and radiant. Skin is also protected from moisture loss and visible damage from aggressors.
Sleeping Collagen is something I like to use nightly when my skin isn’t feeling the best. I feel this gives my skin that extra boost overnight.
GENIUS Liquid Collagen – $115
This formula delivers: Active Vegan Collagen™ to skin to help restore suppleness; patented alguronic acid to visibly reduce lines and wrinkles; 13,000 beads of microalgae oil to hydrate and nourish; omegas three, six, and nine to smooth skin surface; and vitamin E to nurture and protect skin from free radical damage.
This Algenist product was a game changer for me and when I learned about the importance of collagen. Algenist’s Liquid Collagen made my skin so silky smooth and supple! It’s pricey but very effective.
Blue Algae Vitamin C Dark Spot Correcting Peel – $85
This peel is formulated with Algenist’s patented Alguronic Acid, vitamin C from blue-green microalgae, potent antioxidant phycocyanin, and a powerhouse blend of AHAs/BHA/PHA. After using the peel, skin appears is visibly refined and resurfaced, the look of dark spots and hyperpigmentation are reduced, and complexion’s appearance is brightened.
This is Algenist’s newest product and although I’ve only used it for a few weeks, I have enough confidence to add it to my favorites list. I’m so picky with peels because the wrong one can definitely do some damage on skin. However, this Algenist peel is formulated in such a way, it leaves my skin instantly smooth, renewed, and brighter. I’m such a fan!
Complete Eye Renewal Balm – $68
This rich, multitasking cream nurtures the eye area, diminishes the look of puffiness and dark circles, and preps for smooth, long-lasting makeup application. Patented Alguronic Acid, vitamin C, caffeine, cucumber, aloe, and green tea extracts help hydrate eyes for a recharged, rejuvenated appearance.
I like to use this eye cream on days my eyes are extra tired or puffy – it helps with the look of puffy eyes.
Power Recharging Night Pressed Serum – $95
This highly concentrated solid serum delivers potent activates overnight for a youthful-looking, glowing complexion in the morning. Supercharged with patented alguronic acid, a powerful antiaging ingredient, and fortified by algae protein and nutrient-rich coconut water, this hybrid pressed serum addresses the first visible signs of aging by recharging fatigued skin, visibly reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and refining dull, uneven texture. This unique formula breaks into a serum on application and melts into the skin to provide a smooth, supple, and radiant complexion in as little as 10 days.
This serum is so neat. It’s a solid formula and melts into skin as you apply it. I sound like a broken record at this point but like every other product listed here, it delivers results and does what exactly it claims to do.
Total Genius Duo – $112
Two bestselling innovations paired together in a limited-edition duo. Formulated with patented alguronic acid from algae, Active Vegan Collagen™, and nourishing microalgae oil. Together, these two safe, vegan formulations help visibly tighten the appearance of skin for a supple, radiant glow.
