Algenist AA Barrier Serum Review

I've been using Algenist's AA Barrier serum for a while now so thought it was time for a review! This serum is designed to protect your skin from pollution, strengthen your skin barrier as well as having anti-aging benefits. It contains Algenist's patented anti-aging ingredient - Algeronic Acid. This is a compound found in algae that has regenerative and protective properties. The serum is packed with antioxidants like Vitamin B3, Ergothioneine which is found in mushrooms and phloretin. These all help to protect and fortify your skin whilst combating dullness and uneven skin tone.

The serum itself is a thick gel consistency that melts instantly into skin. It has a slight chemical scent when first applied but it's very faint and dissipates instantly. Skin is instantly visibly plumped and hydrated. I've been using the serum in my PM routine but it would work just as well in a morning too. I've had no pilling issues with it at all, even when applying an oil after.

I found that the serum feels instantly nourishing. I've been loving using it after my peels or when I use my retinol serum. It feels comforting on sensitised skin and doesn't aggravate it at all. The main thing that I've noticed since using this serum is that my skin just looks better all round in general. It feels in better condition. It looks firmer and brighter, more glowy! My cheeks usually have red, blotchy patches - even they seem to have decreased. I'd definitely say my skin looks and feels healthier since using this serum. I'm very impressed. It just goes to show what a difference it can make when you give your skin barrier that extra bit of love!

Algenist AA Barrier serum is available from Space NK HERE and Look Fantastic HERE for £80.
