Get Smart – Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Vitamin C+ Serum



While skincare does rely on science, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out what’s right for you. It does, however, take the Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Vitamin C+ Serum to prevent and correct hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and uneven skin tone. Addressing any and all of the above, the very latest from this San Francisco based company hit Sephora shelves (and mine!) just a few weeks ago.

Every Algenist treatment product features the brand’s signature Alguronic Acid, a patented microalgae compound scientifically proven to firm and tone the skin. The new Genius Serum is also infused with a new breakthrough Microalgae Oil that boasts powerful hydrating abilities, a new generation of Vitamin C derivative that will boost that inner glow of yours, and Plant Collagen to encourage cell regeneration. As a treatment step in any routine, this fantastic multi-tasker offers great flexibility for people of all skin types and conditions, making it pretty genius indeed.

The youth promoting ingredient deck aside, Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Vitamin C+ Serum has an elegant liquigel consistency that absorbs comfortably within seconds. Two pumps will cover your entire face and as well as tracing down your neck and chest area. Keep in mind that serums are light in texture but heavy on active ingredients, always follow them with a moisturizer. Both day and night creams layer seamlessly on top of this treatment. With a scent that resembles toasted coconut, you will find yourself reaching for this one AM and PM.



Utilizing cutting edge technology and consisting of all natural ingredients, Algenist promises visible results after just 10 days using the Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Vitamin C+ Serum. Two weeks in, I concur. If you’re on a hunt to juice up your skincare routine, make this new Algenist serum your daily dose of Vitamin C. Instantly softer, your skin will only get brighter and smoother. I cannot vouch for wrinkle depth, but it is meant to decrease significantly over time.

With global coverage ranging from French Vogue to The New York Times, Algenist has grown drastically over the last couple of years. Studded with impressive solutions that combat a wide array of skin issues, the brand is favored by beauty editors all over the world. Explore the complete line-up at and take a look at my other favorites, the Triple-Action Micropolish & Peel (one of the best Glycolic Acid peels) and the Genius Eye Cream (winter weather winner).

    Smells like toasted coconut – that is enough for me to want this! 🙂 Great review! I’ve never seen this in the UK though so maybe it’s another of those US ‘exclusives’?
