There are moments in skincare when you open a product and you realize it is truly, genuinely luxurious. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it’s INCREDIBLE. I had one of these moments the very first time I opened a Revivifying Ultimate Cream With Seanol™ from When Beauty.
I discovered When Beauty earlier this year at Indie Beauty Expo Los Angeles, and I am SO grateful that I did. This incredible line has become a staple in my routine, and I was overjoyed when I learned that they released an anti-aging line this year called Revivifying™ Skincare.
The key to this incredible line is a brown algae extract, which includes Ecklonia Cava Extract. This extract is from Jeju Island, a volcanic island in South Korea known for its incredibly clean environment and unique ecology due to the volcanic lava, similar to Hawaii. Ecklonia Cava is actually edible (which is awesome), and is packed with marine polyphenols, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory properties. When Beauty actually holds a patented form of the brown algae extract called Seanol®, which you’ll find in the Revivifying Ultimate Cream!
Let’s talk about seaweed and algae in skincare for just a moment. There are some products on the market that claim their line contains algae or seaweed. The truth is, it can be expensive to include the right seaweeds and algae, let along an amount that would make a difference in your skin. Many brands “fairy dust” marine ingredients into their products, meaning, there’s just enough to make it onto an ingredient list, but nowhere near enough to make a difference in your skincare.
Why do we want algae or seaweed in our skincare? Because they are the ocean’s superfood! Algae is a great source of many antioxidants, amino acids, proteins, vitamins A, B, C, and E, great as health supplements as well as on your skin. And When Beauty’s Seanol™ formulation helps to antioxidize, reduce fine wrinkles, and revive dull, tired skin. So, you can see how one ingredient can make a huge difference.
I am, quite simply, obsessed with When Beauty’s Revivifying Ultimate Cream With Seanol™. From the moment I opened the jar, I knew I was about to experience an amazing product. It is SO light – this moisturizer hydrates and nourishes without ever leaving my skin greasy or with a sticky residue. It absorbs immediately, leaving my skin feeling lush, healthy and dewy. This moisturizer has an incredible blend of Cacao Seed Butter, Mango Seed Butter, Macadamia Seed Oil, and Moringa Seed Extract help to replenish skin and guard against moisture loss.
How I use this product: As often as possible. Seriously, this is my new post-cleansing go-to. I particularly love it at night, as my head hits the pillow feeling clean, light and ready for rest!
