So I’m sure you guys have noticed the face mask pattern in my last few posts. I kiiiiiinda went a little ham on buying a bunch of new masks at the same time and absolutely nothing else, lol! But stop judging me because I love nothing more than to mask, mask, mask! It’s literally what I do all day. I prooobably should go to esthetics school considering how obsessed with skincare I am just generally.
Today I’d like to talk about this Algenist Algae Brightening mask that I came across on the Sephora app (which is where I seem to do most of my shopping lately). I was on the app hunting specifically for face masks and this one caught my eye because a) it’s packaging seems very “grown up” and expensive, and b) it’s a brightening mask, which is something I’ve been obsessed with lately because who doesn’t want to have bright and naturally glowing skin?! So far, I’m really loving this mask. It feels very luxurious, like SpaUtopia magically appeared in my apartment and put it on my face. When I first opened it I actually thought it was going to be like a mousse because it looks really lightweight and fluffy, but it’s a regular mask. It does glide on and spread really well though. I’ve noticed a huge difference in my skin tone as well, it has become brighter, smoother and more even, with my redness not being as prominent as it once was (those were dark days for me, I looked like Mr.Krabs). So basically, the mask does everything it says it’s supposed to do which doesn’t surprise me at all considering that Algenist is a super sciencey brand who has put intensive research into all of their products, focusing mostly on microalgae, microalgae oil and alguronic acid. Algenist also swears that their products are anti-aging, suitable for all skin types, dermatologist tested, non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic. I also really like that Algenist products are formulated without parabens, sulfates, synthetic dyes, phthalates, GMOs(!!) and triclosan.
I am looking forward to trying more things from this brand, in fact I think my next mask purchase will be the Algenist PERFECTClarifying Pore Corrector Mask. Have you guys tried any Algenist products? What did you think? Recommend me something!
