Filorga Optim-Eyes Eye Contour


Filorga is a brand which I've had my eye on for a little while now and have been wanting to try something from their range. Touted as more of a cosmeceutical line with "30 years of aesthetic medicine", it's definitely appealed to me as a professional, as a range which delivers results and I've  also heard / read great things about them.

The lovely people over at Farmaline UK offered to send me the Filorga Optim-Eyes Eye Contour to try. The eyes are definitely my personal main area of concern (aside from persistent stress breakouts), so the Filorga Optim-Eyes Eye Contour seemed a perfect way to dip my toe in to Filorga as a brand.

One thing you'll notice, which goes for all Filorga products, is they have very complex formulations with many different ingredients, including hyaluronic acid, peptides, amino acids and antioxidants (far too many to list!). They state clearly how many ingredients in total, but also a percentage of which are active ingredients (the ones that DO something). The Filorga Optim-Eyes Eye Contour contains 60% Actives. Personally I find this a little low, but I do respect their transparency and being upfront about things.

The Filorga Optim-Eyes Eye Contour is a triple-action eye treatment to target all areas of ageing around the eye area including lines & wrinkles, under-eye bags and dark circles. 
Luckily I've never really suffered with under-eye bags or dark circles but my main area of concern is lines & wrinkles, which considering my age is not too surprising. 

The texture of the Filorga Optim-Eyes Eye Contour is gel-cream consistency. It's nice and light, absorbing quickly. I really like the airless pump dispenser packaging too, although I found a whole pump far too much for both eyes. I appreciate brands going to the effort of using airless packaging, but I wish more thought would go in to getting a measured dose. Particularly with cosmeceutical-grade skin care.

Results wise, I have been sadly a little disappointed. I think my expectations for this product were very high, maybe a little too high. It's a nice hydrating eye product but unfortunately I didn't see much improvement in my lines. I probably wouldn't go out of my way to repurchase.

Filorga Optim-Eyes Eye Contour retails at £38 for 15ml but you can get this on farmaline.co.uk (along with the rest of the Filorga range) for only £30.06. 

Have you tried anything from the Filorga range? Any recommendations?

  1. I've tried Filorga Time -Filler. A beautiful product to use, but again, like you, a little disappointed results-wise.
