  • Algenist-Genius Collagen Calming Relief
    What I liked
    I bought this because the first three ingredients (besides water) are Collagen, Squalane, and Glycerin. Hello, deep hydration and replenishment!! I know, I know, people say that collagen is useless in skincare because the molecules are too big to be meaningfully absorbed by skin but 🤷🏾‍♀️this girl would rather try than never have tried at all. Anyway, I have been loving this as my night-time moisturizer. A little goes a long way because this is quite thick – I've been mixing with some hyaluronic acid to make the consistency a bit more viscose for my skin. I've been dealing with some redness and minor rosacea these days due to seasonal changes. This cream always soothes the redness and my skin calms the heck down in the morning. Overall super impressed.
    What I disliked
    It is a bit thicker in texture than I would have liked. I don't like the feeling of "heavy" creams/masks as I feel my skin gets clogged / irritated easily.
