New from Algenist: Targeted Deep Wrinkle Minimizer

You may be don't have wrinkles Pammy! Well, I don't *but* I do have some pesky deep expression lines on my forehead and some fine lines. They are really not that noticeable but they totally bug me! When I found out that this product fills existing lines while also preventing lines, I figured it was worth a try!

This gel product is a very concentrated serum that contains Algenist's key anti-aging ingredient: Alguronic Acid. It feels like a super thick makeup primer.

What is Alguronic Acid?
It is the newest and latest anti-aging skincare discovery! It was discovered in San Francisco by a team of biotechology scientists (working on microalgae-based renewable energy solutions). The discovery was accidental...and aren't we beauty nuts excited about this "accident"! Alguronic Acid is more effective than Retinol, Vitamin C, and Hyaluronic Acid! Wow, this is indeed very exciting news.

Here is how Algenist's Targeted Deep Wrinkle Minimizer works:
  • FILL: upon application, the exclusive Alguronic Acid Filling Sphere technology swells to instantly fill and smooth lines and conceal imperfections.
  • PRIME: skin is primed and smoothed for improved ease of makeup application and longer lasting makeup wear.
  • TREAT: the regenerative power of Alguronic Acid combines with soy protein, Echinacea and an active peptide complex to minimize the size of deep wrinkles and even skin texture creating a more youthful appearance over time.

Algenist's Product Testing:

Independent consumer testing on the immediate results of the Targeted Deep Wrinkle Minimizer revealed: 100% reported fine lines and wrinkles were immediately smoothed and minimized in targeted areas

95% reported their skin was immediately primed for flawless makeup application
98% reported that it creates an immediate smooth, matte finish on skin

98% reported fine lines and wrinkles were immediately filled in targeted areas 

Key Ingredients:
  •  Alguronic Acid Filling Spheres: instantly fill lines and reduce the size of deep wrinkles over time 
  • Peptide Complex: cell messaging peptides minimize wrinkles and firm the skin 
  • Soy Protein: decreases the number and size of deep wrinkles 
  • Vitamins C, E, and B3: stimulates collagen production, provides antioxidant protection, & evens out skin tone

My Results:
While I can't evaluate the "deep wrinkle" claims, I can tell you that this product improved the look of my skin. I used this product like a super concentrated makeup primer. I apply it to my forehead line, the outer corner of my eye area, and around my smile. Makeup glides very smoothly on top of this product. My skin looks more "smoothed out" in these areas after application and makeup. Because of the consistency of this product, I can see how it would work on those with deeper wrinkles. The thick serum like feel has a bit of stick to help it stay put.

I find that I am really reaching for this when I want my makeup to look super nice and smooth! 

Only time will tell if this product has anti-aging benefits. Given the research behind Alguronic acid (see above), I feel like it is likely doing something beneficial. I know that is such a general claim but only very long-term testing will reveal if it works on deep wrinkles (and I don't have any yet...).

The Skinny:
  • Retails for $45.00 for a .5 oz pump tube. Yes, this is a small size; but, the product is so concentrated! You only need a very small amount of product.
  • Available at Sephora,, Algenist, and QVC.
Thanks for reading!
