Algae Brightening Mask
Wrap your face in the detoxifying and nourishing power of algae. This luxurious mask harnesses a rich composition of both micro and macro algae. It gently exfoliates with real leaves of sea kelp and a freshly scented blue-green algae silt base creating a visibly more radiant and even toned complexion. Its expert formulation is designed to visibly brighten, smooth and hydrate while pampering your skin.
• Visibly more radiant and even toned complexion
• Instantly brightens the appearance of skin
• Skin looks more hydrated and feels smoother
Composed with six sources of algae, the Algae Brightening Mask includes: Alguronic Acid, Algenist’s patented ingredient which helps rejuvenate the skin for a more youthful appearance; Algae Extract which helps improve skin’s hydration; Macrocystis Pyrifera Extract (sea kelp), a calming skin exfoliator; Alaria Esculenta Extract (brown algae) decreases the appearance of wrinkles, and promotes skin suppleness; Haematococcus Pluvialis (freshwater green algae), which helps provide protection from oxidative stress and protect skin against environmental stresses; Silt works to nourish the skin.
This combination of powerful algae based ingredients delivers extraordinary results in a balanced and rich formulation. Immediately after use skin feels clean and detoxified, skin tone and radiance appears boosted, and skin texture is visibly improved. Within 10 days of use pores are visibly refined and fine lines appear softened.

This stuff is wonderful. Ten minutes of this for the results of an expensive facial. After one use so keen to see how it does over time.

I'm on my third pot of this mask and will probably continue to keep a supply after this one is finished. There are so many different face treatments and magical claims out there, and it can be difficult to decide which to opt for, while trying to be conscious of the amount of storage space I have for them, and their longevity after opening them. If I was limited to one, it would always be something like this. I've never bothered to read what Algenist claims it can do, I can only tell you that my face feels very clean, soft and fresh after use. If I had one niggle, it's that the little seeds in the mask take some extra effort to remove. Nothing a little wipe of toner can't sort!

Softer and fresher looking skin
I wanted a mask that would reduce the need for me to wear makeup during the day e.g. Foundation by brightening my skin and making it look generally fresher. Within 2 weeks (I do use it 3-4 times a week) my skin looked a lot healthier (pores minimised) and brighter!

Great on sensitive skin
I have very reactive, sensitive skin so am always a little nervous about hi-tec products or exfoliants. I didn't need to worry with this. After using a trial sachet my skin had visibly calmed down, was less red and had a better texture. Amazing !
I thought it may be a coincidence but having now bought it, it continues to help improve my skin tone. I would definitely recommend this product.

Great product, worth every penny! I have used many masks but this one is the best. My skin feels really soft. You don't need exfoliator, it is mask and exfoliator in one product. Love it!
