I am unashamedly an avid fan of Filorga and I have been since way back in 1997, when I set up a syllabus for a 3rd year advanced skin care syllabus.
Filorga has the most amazing Mesotherapy Treatments which are now only offered by Medical Aesthetic Centres and the results truly speak for themselves.

The Filorga retail range has been just as impressive over the years, never disappointing and always making use of the cutting edge trends and technolgy. Based on an impressive history such as this, it is not surprising that they have just launched a product which is ... well a first (as far as I know) in the world of cosmetics. It features all their usual actives BUT for the first time, a night cream which includes meteorite extract .... yes you heard me, this product is truly out of this world!

So here is what I thought ...

Packaging - 
Filorga's packaging is always exceptional , high end and super luxe. This time the jar is a transparent square shaped jar showing the cream contained within , and in this instance it is a black cream ...yes, you heard me correctly it is black.
The packaging is beautiful , elegant and sophisticated however not the most practical for travel in both weight and size.

Fragrance -
Due to the actives in Filorga which are common across the brand, many of the products have the fabulous soft fresh/lemony type smell which is divine. SKIN ABSOLUTE shares this, but has the slightest mineral smell to it which I assume can only be attributed to the meteorite extract.

Texture - 
This is a gel cream texture and although the product appears to be a rather 'dense black' in the jar , it is in actual fact a transparent, grainy and greyish black colour. It spreads over the skin easily, and a little goes a long way ... no your skin does not go black, in fact it disappears into the skin without a trace.

Efficacy - 
I have been using this product for nearing on 3 weeks now and my skin is loving it , I am sure if we were genetically matched to a skin care brand mine would be Filorga.
The SKIN ABSOLUTE has helped to plump up lines and wrinkles and tightened the skin ....
just the other day someone said to me ' you look so good!' meanwhile back at the ranch I am exhausted and can't wait for this year to come to an end.

It works clearly!
** This product contains a cocktail of anti-aging ingredients.

So why Meteorites?

Meteorites are essentially composed of silicon. Silicon reserves within the body begin to deplete with age, particularly in certain tissues such as the skin, arteries and cartilage. The silicon contained within the meteorite extract in Skin-Absolute is vital for the synthesis of collage, elastin and hyaluronic acid, which lends the skin its soft and elastic texture. The meteorite extract is also what gives the product it’s black lacquered textures which disappears upon application. 

How do you use it?
Skin-Absolute should be applied at night after cleansing and the application of your Filorga serums.

SKIN ABSOLUTE will be available in selected Edgars and Red Square stores from November and will retail for ZAR 1 700.00 for 50ml.
