I’ll be turning 30 soon, so whatever preventative steps I take to slow down the aging process (or at least the physical signs of it!), I’m all in. My latest discovery? Algenist’s ELEVATE Advanced Lift Contouring Cream, the brand’s latest anti-aging skincare cream. With a motto like “10 Minutes to Firm, 10 Days to Sculpt”, it’s one product I was anxious to try! (And better yet, purchases help support a cause this month – more on that below!)
What makes Algenist’s ELEVATE Advanced Lift Contouring Cream so innovative? ELEVATE combines fast-acting peptide technology with a unique sculpting texture that firms skin in just 10 minutes. ELEVATE also features Algenist’s signature patented ingredient – Alguronic Acid – which is a produced from microalgae. What’s unique about Alguronic Acid is that it helps to increase cell reproduction by 55%, while also minimizing environmental damage and boosting the efficacy of other anti-aging ingredients. By combining Alguronic Acid with a gold delivery system, Algenist was able to formulate a product that visibly sculpts the face overtime. The combination is so effective, that it has the ability to produce results in as little as 10 days.
Algenist took their ELEVATE Advanced Lift Contouring Cream to the lab and here’s what they found: In a clinical study of 20 participants who used ELEVATE once, subjects noticed an increase in firmness by 16% and elasticity by 28% after just 10 minutes. In a customer study involving 80 participants who used ELEVATE twice daily, 94% of subjects reported smoother skin and 93% reported softer and more nourished skin after 10 days.
ELEVATE’s powerful, fast-acting, and clinically-proven ingredients are packed inside an ultra-luxurious cream. The texture is whipped yet buttery, and instantly melts into the skin on contact. The cream settles to a semi-matte finish within seconds and leaves skin feeling soft, smooth, and moisturized.
From my experience, ten minutes after applying, my skin will feel ever-so-slightly tighter. I’ll notice the biggest difference around my eye area – it will feel subtly ‘lifted’. Although I’ve only been using the cream for a week now, I’m impressed with its ‘anti-gravity’ effects so far and am anxious to continue use to see what it’s able to achieve long-term.
In the meantime, Algenist’s ELEVATE Advanced Lift Contouring Cream has so far met all of my combination skin’s needs as a regular nighttime moisturizer – it hydrates even my driest areas, and manages to keep my skin balanced all throughout the night. Even as a morning moisturizer, it works beautifully, leaving my skin super smooth and firmed, not to mention perfectly prepped for make up. Combine all that with ELEVATE’s long-term potential to sculpt and contour the face, and this could easily earn itself a spot in my permanent skincare routine!
