If you are into your skincare then you definitely would have seen this doing the rounds the last month or so. The Algenist Blue Algae Vitamin C Dark Spot Correcting Peel has launched with a bang and I want to share with you how I’ve been getting on.

I have used Algenist on and off since it launched into Space NK. I used to absolutely LOVE their Triple-Action Microdermabrasion which was a gel-like AHA exfoliator WITH small beads that did an incredible job at brightening and exfoliating the skin and I was super sad when they discontinued it! I think their Genius Cleanser is incredible and *that* Collagen serum is pretty banging too.

Algenist (AL•GEN•NIST) is a brand that is known for their key ingredient Alguronic acid from algae which is naturally sourced and they use biotechnology to sustainably product this special ingredient. Alguronic acid, in a nutshell, is a powerhouse ingredient for anti-ageing in skincare.

Sustainably produced. Ingredient efficacy. Biotechnology. Vegan

Algenist focus on innovative ingredient discoveries that produce visible and proven results. Their latest ingredient discovery is the Vitamin C from Spirulina which is a blue-green algae and found in the incredible peel I’m talking all about today. This pure vitamin C is vegan and renewable as it’s harvested from the Spirulina fields off the coast of California, where it is produced in a close-loop system.

This Blue Algae Vitamin C Peel is honestly incredible! I’ve only used it a few times but after the first use I knew it was a winner. It made my skin the most baby-soft and smoothest and I couldn’t stop feeling my face after using it. I have had this much of a noticeable difference in my skin after using an exfoliator/peel for a long time!

It contains Blue Algae Vitamin C, their patented Alguronic acid, Vitamins, Minerals, antioxidant Phycocyacin and a triple-acid complex of AHA’s, BHA and PHA. These ingredients combined make for a super-potent brightening treatment that will exfoliate, even the skin tone, brighten and smooth the skin.

The packaging is sleek, eye-catching and functional. Pump applicator which dispenses a good dose of the blue gel with one pump. I need about 3 for a full face mask and apply it straight onto a clean, damp skin and leave it on for up to 20 minutes. The first time I used it I only had time to leave it on for 5 and honestly my skin was baby-soft even after this amount of time.

The one thing I don’t like about it? The name. I wish it wasn’t called ‘Dark Spot Correcting Peel’ as if I was a consumer in a shop, I wouldn’t think this was for me. I don’t have dark spots : but this is for everyone and anyone who want an brightening, smoothing, acid peel. 

It has been clinically tested and 89% said the skin felt soft and polished after 1 use and after 8 uses 89% said the appearance of dark spots is visibly diminished.

This peel is for anyone and everyone who wants an acid exfoliator to brighten, smooth and soften the skin. Obviously it’s also incredible if you have dark spots, but don’t be put off this treatment if you don’t have dark spots!

The Algenist Blue Algae Vitamin C Dark Spot Correcting Peel is available now from Space Nk and Cult Beauty and costs £80.
