Algenist ALIVE Prebiotic Balancing Mask $32/1.7 oz The Claim: A vegan Prebiotic AND Probiotic color morphing mask that rebalances, detoxifies & hydrates skin; revealing a healthy, alive & refreshed overall glow. Formulated with an algae derived prebiotic & a probiotic ( Lactococcus Ferment Lysate ) to target concerns that may result from unbalanced surface skin bacteria. I made informational slides about the special ingredients in this mask & a quick breakdown on the difference between 🦠probiotics & 🧫prebiotics. ALGENIST - ALIVE Prebiotic Balancing Mask I was excited to try this mask, even before I knew of the color changing aspect🍬 It’s a cool indicator of when the application is complete. After you first apply it, you rub in circular motions until it turns pink. The loop i shot (with help lol) shows me trying to get the color to change in time, but you should massage more gently, so it will take a few moments longer. Once it’s turned pink, you leave it on for 3-5 minutes, then rinse. 💗The texture is very smooth, easy to spread & has a charcoal mask feel. It’s fragrance free, but has the slightest “fresh air” scent. This is just a ‘first impressions’ review & I’ll definitely be using this again soon! It says to use 2-3x/week, but personally I’m not sure if I would use it that frequently because I have dry skin. Though it was not a tight/dry feeling after I rinsed the mask, my skin was incredibly thirsty! I’m not sure if that’s a good or a bad thing, but my usual post-mask hydration & moisture routine didn’t hit like it usually do💦🤷🏻‍♀️ It didn’t feel drying during any other part of the application. *I added my post-mask routine I used when I tried this product as the last slide. I double-cleansed prior & I use a little May Coop Raw Sauce essence around my eyes & on my neck to keep hydration-comfort while I mask. *There are full reviews of all of those products in my previous posts (except the YSL cleansing balm, which I love, & a review is coming soon)🖤 🧼This may be a great option for oily or acne prone skin. My skin felt refreshed & glowing afterwards & very clean. 🌿It also contains Lactic Acid, Lauric Acid, Palmitic Acid & Myristic Acid. As well as Vitamin E & botanical extracts of Chinaberry flower & leaf, Basil & Holy Basil & Turmeric. 🍬Check out the slides for all ingredients🍬 Luv nay 💌PS- for more information on the origins of Algenist as a brand, check out my recent review of their Liquid Collagen Lip Treatment👄

Prebiotic Mask 🦠
{gifted} ALGENIST - ALIVE Prebiotic Balancing Mask Skin type: Young (22), sensitive, reactive, combination skin Product intention: rebalance, detoxify, and hydrate skin, revealing a healthy, alive, and refreshed overall glow Texture: (as shown) creamy, thick. Color transforms upon application I use this product about once a week, when my skin is feeling a little congested. What I love about this mask is that it will ALWAYS leave me feeling clean and balanced, and never will make my skin react, even if it’s already sensitized. This skin is also incredibly fun to apply (and you know I LOVE those)… It is green in the jar, and as you apply it to your skin and rub it in, it turns pink! After it turns pink, you leave it on for al little while and then wash off with warm water. Skin is left feeling SO fresh and balanced. I would definitely recommend this product - Algenist is a wonderful brand and I’m a huge fan of a lot of their products. This one was a big hit for me. I keep it in my skincare fridge to extend its shelf life because while I love this mask, I don’t use it nearly enough to be finishing it soon. It’s $38, and if you can cop it during a Sephora sale, or on the Algenist website (they have a discount for new members!), it’s even less.

✨ Algenist kindly gifted me their gorgeous “Alive” duo which consists of the Prebiotic Balancing Mask and the Prebiotic Balancing Moisturiser. ✨ Algenist creates powerful anti-ageing skincare harnessing algae, one of the oldest and most nutrient-rich plants in the world. Algae produces a compound that not only allows them to survive, but also thrive and regenerate in the harshest environments on the planet. This compound is Alguronic Acid, naturally-sourced and sustainably produced. When scientifically tested, Alguronic Acid demonstrated significant anti-aging properties compared to other well-known anti-ageing skincare ingredients. ✨ The Prebiotic Balancing Mask changes colour from mint green to bright pink as it addresses bacteria, whilst also providing hydration. I was really worried this kaolin mask would make my skin feel dry but it didn’t at all! It was a strange feeling, felt like it was exfoliating my skin gently but at the same time adding moisture. I looked at the ingredients and of course - there was the lactic acid. One of the ingredients I LOVE! Caroline Hirons calls this aha pac man and she is so right! 👌🏻 ✨ The Prebiotic Balancing Moisturiser is a really light yet nourishing moisturiser with SPF 15. The SPF of 15 is the only negative here as I usually don’t leave the house with anything less than 30. However. The light fluffiness of this cream makes me want to use it every day! It absorbs really well, leaves my skin smooth and complexion glowy + healthy-looking! I get now why this range is called Alive - this is the cream you need when you want to look like you’re fully rested when in reality you’ve hardly slept! There is no sticky feeling either (sticky creams are a deal breaker for me!) It’s everything I want in a daytime moisturiser so I will continue using this but will just need to top up with a higher sunscreen on top! Algenist please make this with an SPF of 30! I will love you forever! ✨ The Prebiotic Balancing Mask costs £38 and the Prebiotic Balancing Moisturiser costs £40. Available to purchase from Spacenk + Lookfantastic

Trying to organize a little bit... My sink top is usually a bit cluttered, so let’s talk about the cabinet! Just like a cute little skincare closet🤎 I’m not usually one to stock up, but between moving to a rural area, quarantine & some gifts, it happened. I have some friends that hoard their favorites when there’s a sale or fear of apocalypse.... Apocalypse aside, I really don’t recommend “stocking up” Running out of a crucial product sucks, but overstocking can be problematic. I acquired more treatments than I know what to do with lol, & if they stay locked away I’ll never remember to try them! Another big issue is expiration dates as well as ingredients/actives that are sensitive to light, heat or humidity. Products with organic ingredients/products free of preservatives will definitely be sensitive to these elements. Some actives, like vitamin C are notoriously unstable, loosing some of their stability & potency over time. If not stored in cool, dark & dry conditions, it can speed up oxidation, causing the degradation of the molecule. This can lead to simply a waste of money or serious skin irritation! I recommend keeping any vitamin C products out of the sun, especially if they have a clear bottle. A few favorites I have back ups of: (check previous posts for full reviews) HERBIVORE - Amethyst Body Scrub With Epsom Salt the best jasmine scented body scrub💜 giovanni - D:Tox System Purifying Facial Mask charcoal & volcanic ash mask🌋 TONYMOLY - 62% Alcohol Aloe Hand Gel candy pear scented hand sanitizer🍐 SHANGPREE - Diamond Luminous Cream a super luxurious Niacinamide cream💎 unpa.Cosmetics - Bubi Bubi Lip Ampoule just reviewed this, my new favorite!🌹 A few things I’m really excited to try, & can’t wait to share my experience/review with you guys❤️Drop me some tips in the comments if you’ve tried any of these or have any questions about the others😊 HERBIVORE - Prism Exfoliating Glow Duo TONYMOLY - Strawberry Nose Pack ETUDE - Moistfull Collagen Eye Cream ETUDE - SoonJung 2x Barrier Intensive Cream Elizabeth Arden - Vitamin C Ceramide Capsules Radiance Renewal Serum Kaja - Brow Blowout Fiber Gel Brow Definer ALGENIST - ALIVE Prebiotic Balancing Mask NEOGENLAB - Real Vita C Powder Lemon ⬆️ powder Vitamin C is more stable than liquid forms & doesn’t degrade in sunlight as easily.

The texture on this mask is amazing! I like this mask a lot. It feels like a thick whipped frosting and changes color with heat once applied. It makes my skin feel really soft and I’m enjoying this so far!
