Review: Algenist Genius Liquid Collagen

I’ve never hummed and hawed over a product as long as I did with Algenist’s Genius Liquid Collagen. And for good reason. This sucker is a whopping $132 CAD! But I finally took the plunge and I couldn’t be happier.

I’ve always considered myself a serious person when it came to skincare. I’ve had very sensitive skin for as long as I can remember, so I was willing to splurge if it meant keeping my skin in check. Now that I’m in my 30’s I’m even more aware of what my skin is doing, so even with a price tag like $132, I’m willing to do whatever it takes.

Algenist’s Genius Liquid Collagen is a 100% vegan formulation designed to plump and preserve all skin types. This “fountain of youth” – so they call it – contains 13,000 microalgae oil beads, omegas 3, 6, and 9, as well vitamin E, and claims to restore bounce and resilience in just 10 days.

I’ve been using this product for a couple of weeks now and I can attest that this really does plump your skin. In fact, I first started seeing results around day 3! This product has revolutionized my skincare routine. I apply it after cleansing and toning my skin – the formula is a gel-like consistency that applies like silk. The pump takes some getting used to (think of it like a dropper), but once you get the hang of it, it only takes one drop to cover your whole face.


In reviews I read some people said they had an issue with the scent, however it doesn’t seem to bother me. It has a light floral/botanical scent, which dissipates fairly quickly. Some people also mentioned breaking out with this product, but I haven’t seen that kind of reaction on my skin, so I’m hopeful.

If you’re really looking for something to plump up and brighten your skin, I can’t recommend this product enough. It has a pretty hefty price tag, but if you’re anything like me, and willing to splurge when it comes to skin, definitely check this one out! A+ Algenist! Well done!
