Skinstore x Filorga Limited Edition Box Review
Here is the info booklet for the box.
Filorga Meso-Mask, 50 ml – Retail Value $59.00
This mask was surprisingly creamy! Before I dove in, though, I really appreciated the foil seal on this mask- it made everything feel securely sanitary. Once I peeled the metal off, I found a creamy white mask that wasn’t drying at all to my skin. This mask is made with collagen, elastin, polysaccharides, urea, beeswax, and sweet almond oil. Since I don’t really have wrinkles, I couldn’t test if this mask would visibly smooth them after one use, but it definitely left my skin softer and more hydrated.
Filorga Optim-Eyes Eye Contour Cream, 0.5 oz – Retail Value $49.00
This eye cream has a gel-cream texture that’s really lightweight, and it absorbed into the delicate skin around my eyes quickly. This is designed to target dark circles, puffiness, and wrinkles. This eye cream features an ingredient formulated by Filorga called “melaton-eyes,” which is designed to target signs of fatigue related to a lack of sleep. The formula also has peptides, niacinamide, and multiple amino acids. It layered well in both my morning and evening routines, and I like the twist-up mechanism that hides the pump when the cream is not in use.
Filorga Time-Filler Super Smoothing Face Mask – Retail Value $11.00
I think this was my favorite item in the box- I love sheet masks, and this one left my skin looking radiant. The mask features “black fiber” technology that normally I would call a gimmick, except this sheet mask fits my face absolutely perfectly. The ingredients list includes things like collagen, polysaccharides, and gluconolactone, which is a polyhydroxy acid (PHA) that, interestingly enough, is also used in the making of feta cheese. I may not understand it, but I know that my skin loved it. If you’re curious about how this sheet mask worked for me (along with a few other products from this box), you can check out my video below where I do a short Filorga-based skincare routine.
Filorga Time-Filler Absolute Wrinkle Correction Cream, 15 ml – Estimated Value $26.70 (buy the 50 ml version for $89.00)
This moisturizer features multiple peptides, botanical extracts, squalane, and hyaluronic acid (among others). I really liked this as a night cream- it felt perfectly heavy and like my skin was being hugged by a moisturizer. This didn’t work so well for me in my morning routine, though- this ingredients list does have silicones in it, and when I tried to apply this over my regular morning products with sunscreen on top, there was a ton of pilling. Even if I can’t use this in the AM, this left my skin dewy and plump enough that I’m absolutely going to continue using it at night.
Micellar waters are one of those products I don’t ever splurge on because I get perfectly satisfactory results from cheaper brands, but I still like receiving fancier ones in beauty boxes! This did a good job of removing light dirt from my skin and left my skin feeling hydrated, and I like that the ingredients list includes zinc (it’s a great ingredient for sensitive skin).
This was my second favorite item in the box after the sheet mask- every morning after using this the night before I woke up to my skin glowing. I can’t tell you the last time I saw a skincare company use “supreme” to describe its product, but I kinda get the hype after using it multiple nights in a row (and waking up radiant every single morning after). This has some fancy Filorga-specific ingredients (Melatonin’CX® and NCEF, a complex created by the brand that features amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals), and it also has hyaluronic acid, collagen, and squalane. I almost have this mini tube empty, and it really is one of those products you can see small but noticeable results once you start using it.
The Verdict: I really enjoyed experiencing Filorga through this limited edition Skinstore partnership. I hadn’t used anything from the brand prior to reviewing this box, but I really enjoyed all of the products and appreciated their unique packaging. My favorites were the night mask and sheet mask- that sheet mask is a little pricy, but I would definitely buy it again to use before a special occasion. I think this box had a good balance of full-size and sample-sized products, and by my math, everything adds up to $159.83. That’s about $10 below the promised value of $170, but I definitely think the value is still worth it in this box.
