Filorga Skincare ~ a guest post by my lovely sister
Laboratoires Filorga is a French skincare brand, much loved by models and celebs. I was testing another range when I was sent this for review, so once pics were taken I handed over these stylish pots of loveliness to my big sis (& bestest friend), Paloma.
This is her review and my first guest post on the blog! Paloma is a skincare fanaticist, always searching for her holy grail products and has tested most high end brands in existence… I shall leave you in her very capable hands!
I loved the whole experience of using these products. Firstly because of the look of them… the packaging has a chic aesthetic, combined with convincing science. (The black packaging and double F logo are reminiscent of one of my favourite brands’ interlocking Cs!)
I also liked the consistency of the creams compared to the last moisturizer I used, Elemis Marine Cream. I loved the Elemis, but it seemed to evaporate daily. The Filorga went on easily and yet had reassuring body to it.
The Iso Structure (Absolute firming day cream) has to be worked well into the skin, and after three weeks of using it, I really didn't want to put on any foundation. My skin looked smooth and firm, had fewer flaws and seemed nice and bright.
The Sleep and Peel (Resurfacing night cream) has a mild tingle when you apply it. I liked this, as it convinced me that it was gently exfoliating all the dead stuff off my face as I slept! It’s also richly moisturising.
The Optim Eyes is for dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles, with a texture somewhere between a gel and a cream. I found it reasonably effective although quite drying - it wasn’t my favourite of the three products, so my search for the ultimate eye cream continues!
The day and night creams were definite winners - I was sorry to see the bottom of the jars and am sure if you are lucky enough to be able to combine these basic products with the serums, masks etc, you will see amazing results.
Thanks for a fabulous review sis! Have you got any French skincare favourites?
