This is one of my absolutely favourite nighttime anti-aging serums. I love it because it really works and at the same time it’s not too exfoliating and doesn’t dry out the skin. Personally, I consider Filorga to be one of the best brands out there. Here is why.
Filorga is a French brand that combines the best of two worlds: cosmetics and aesthetic medicine. All their products are backed up by years of extensive scientific research. Laboratories Filorga Paris are a certified manufacturer of three medical products (mesotherapy, glycolic peels and injectable dermal fillers) and they offer professional aesthetic medicine services in their beauty clinics. They use the experience obtained in aesthetic medicine to produce high, performing top-of-the-range anti-aging products. Filorga uses the same active ingredients and techniques in medical products and its beauty products. Their expertise in natural cell renewal processes and anti-aging solutions is unparalleled. It is truly a superior type of skincare.
Meso + Serum: How it Works
Meso + serum is part of Filorga’s dermo-cosmetic range inspired by aesthetic medicine. It has three main effects: 1) it moisturises the skin, 2) it helps the skin heal, and 3) it renews and re-plumps the skin and provides long lasting anti-aging protection. The serum has four active ingredients.
First, hyaluronic acid which, as you might know, is naturally present in the body and is the main ingredient of semi-permanent dermal fillers such as Juvederm. It plumps the tissue and fills in wrinkles and fine lines. The one used by Filorga products is designed to be easily absorbed by the skin.
The second is NCTF which is normally injected during mesotherapy. It contains a blend of vitamins, amino acids, coenzymes, minerals and antioxidants.
The third active ingredient are DNA fragments which help to protect the skin against free radicals.
The fourth active ingredient is retinol which is scientifically proven to have strong anti-aging properties. It helps to stimulate cell renewal and prevents wrinkles from forming. Retinol is extremely sensitive to light and air – this means that it loses its properties when exposed to these elements. As a result products containing retinol have to be stored in airtight and light-protective containers in order to remain effective. This is one more reason why Meso + serum works well. The packaging keeps it nice and fresh and protects active ingredients from losing their beneficial properties.
I just finished the first bottle of this serum. I’ve been using it for the past 4 months and absolutely love it! It’s an amazing product. Filorga never falls short of my expectations and this product is no exception. The skin feels so smooth and fresh after using this product. The active ingredients gently exfoliate the skin but also moisturise it at the same time. As a result you’re not risking drying out your skin. I’ve also noticed that I didn’t have almost any blemishes while using this product. It might be due to other things as well, but I think that this serum helped to keep my skin healthy and clear.
The serum is very light and absorbs easily. It doesn’t leave the skin greasy or sticky – it has a smooth and velvet-like finish. I only used it at night but you can easily use it under makeup. It has no smell and it dermatologically tested so it doesn’t irritate sensitive skin.
It’s always hard to assess the effects of using a serum as they don’t appear overnight. I also don’t have wrinkles so it’s more of a preventive treatment. But I really liked how my skin looked and felt when I was using this product and I will definitely be repurchasing it. If you’re worried about premature aging and want to stop lines and wrinkles from appearing or deepening this is the right product for you. I would recommend it for all women over 28. In my opinion Filorga is really the best thing you can do for your skin. The only down side is that this product contains parabens. But it’s so good it kind of makes up for it.
At £54 per 30ml this serum is a bit on the pricey side. But it’s worth every penny.
TIP: If you’re planning to travel to France I would recommend buying it there. Filorga products tend to be much cheaper in France.
