Algenist Triple-Action Micropolish and Peel

I know when Marcia raves about a skin care line, it’s going to be good.  Every time we get together she raves and raves about Algenist, so I had high expectations for the Triple-Action Micropolish and Peel ($75).  It lived up to my expectations, and then some!

Triple-Action Micropolish and Peel is an at-h0me peel that exfoliates the skin using a 10% acid duo (patent-pending Alguronic Acid + Glycolic Acid) plus a 10% fruit enzyme complex and mini-polishing crystals.  It’s a gentle but potent combination that does a fabulous job of improving texture, brightening, and smoothing the skin.

The mini-crystals slough off dead skin, allowing the acids and fruit enzymes to penetrate and regenerate the skin.

I love the packaging, it’s just perfect.  The tube protects the active ingredients from sunlight and oxygen, and it’s extremely hygienic.

It’s super easy to use.  After cleansing, while your skin is still damp, you apply a small amount with your fingertips using small circular motions.  This activates the mini-crystals and starts the exfoliation process.  It feels like teeny-tiny grains of sand in a silky smooth serum.  Leave the polish on for about five minutes, then rinse off with warm water or wipe off with a damp washcloth.  And that’s it!  I find twice a week is perfect for keeping my skin clear and smooth.

Algenist has many excellent products, and the new Triple-Action Micropolish & Peel should be at the top of your ‘gotta try’ list.  I am truly impressed.  – Lisa
