The product I am going to be reviewing today is the Algenist Regenerative Anti Aging Moisturizer. This product is manufactured in San Francisco, CA by the company Algenist. The company claims that the Alguronic Acid, which is the exclusive anti aging ingredient, minimizes wrinkles and moisturizes. Alguronic Acid is a marine ingredient that works beneath the skins surface. It is said that the product does similar to what a retanoid product would do, but without the irritation.
In my experience, retanoid products are found to be very effective. In some reviews, customers have said they had seen it in International Magazines top ten moisturizers, and says it works wonderfully for Asian skin. I unfortunately have not found it to be doctor recommended, or used by celebrities, although it was a part of the SAG awards makeup and skincare kit. That says something, right?

Algenist Regenerative Anti-Aging Moisturizer Cons

- Professionals rate it poorly
- Very limited information found on external websites
- Limited places to buy the product
I have found many positive reviews from customers even though the pros rate it poorly. Most reviews say that Algenist Regenerative Anti-Aging Moisturizer is very lightweight and absorbs quickly and that they would purchase it again. Many have said that they’ve seen a difference in as little as 10 days! One user reported that the wrinkles around their eyes and forehead were nearly invisible. A score of 4.5 stars out of 5 stars on average is very impressive in the skincare world!
From a 10 day self assessment test among 100 women, radiance was improved in 93, skin density improved in 86, and over 4 weeks, 78 women noticed that their wrinkles had dramatically reduced, and 81 women felt their skin had tightened and lifted. Just a tip for future use, apply the Algenist Regenerative Anti-Aging Moisturizer not just on the face, but also on the neck and decolletage as well! There are other areas of the body that age as well, but we sometimes forget that!
