Algenist blue algae Vitamin C bottle next to the collagen gel

Sure, budget beauty brands are our mainstays, our beauty bread and butter. But there are those of us who enjoy pampering ourselves with high-end products once in a while that are both luxurious and effective in supporting our unique skin care needs. If this sounds like you, this Memorial Day, Algenist is offering a 20% discount on purchases over $75 and a 25% discount on $125 or more. A $175 purchase will be discounted by 30%.

You'll need to apply one of three promo codes to get the discounted prices listed above. Using 22MAY20, 22MAY25 and 22MAY30 will get you 20%, 25% and 30% off respectively through May 30. And you get free shipping too.

While there are many products to choose from, this offer cannot be combined with any other discount, and gift and kit options are unavailable. 

So, I've tested Algenist and my first impressions are pretty good. I got my hands on the $95 Weekender kit (not available during this sale). Inside are a rejuvenating cleanser, AA barrier serum, eye balm, anti-aging cream and a prebiotic balancing mask. The cleanser has a gentle lather that's not too soapy, but your face feels clean (not squeaky clean). And each cream had a nice consistency and didn't feel oily, even after drying. But the smell leaves a bit to be desired. This is a brand that all ages can use, but older people will likely find it more helpful for advanced skin care issues such as fine lines and wrinkles.

If you want suggestions that you can get on sale right now, get the Genius liquid collagen that reduces fine lines and wrinkles, the Sublime defense SPF 50 that dries clear without a cast and the Blue Algae Vitamin C dark spot correcting peel to help reveal smoother, more even skin.
