Review: Filorga Oil Absolute


When facial oils started becoming popular, I never understood why someone might want to drench their face in a greasy substance - mainly because I had combination skin and preferred a matte face. However, growing up my skin has become more dry, tired and in need of a more potent product that will penetrate deeply into the skin and give it a nice boost of hydration. I have been using Filorga products for the past couple of years and can swear by how these products transformed my skin - so when the brand released a facial oil, I was totally sold! 
Today, I will be going through the ingredients this product contains and the effects it had on my skin after using it for over a month or so. As usual, this product was gifted to me during the PR launch event but all opinions are my own.

Packaging:
The oil comes in a weighty black bottle, which looks extremely elegant and portrays the luxury of Filorga products. Once you twist the lid, a button pops out from the top and it is linked to a pipette - which sucks the product from the bottle and allows you to easily dispense the oil in your hands. Even though the bottle is a little heavy, the size is still considered travel friendly and won't occupy a huge space in your beauty bag. 


Product/Experience:
The oil-serum was developed by the Filorga team to tackle major anti-ageing issues such as wrinkles, dehydration, dullness and dark spots - and it is supposed to work its magic and transform the skin after 30 days of use. It contains a cocktail of natural and potent oils such as: Camelia oil, Buriti oil, Jojoba oil, Apricot Kernel Oil as well as Vitamin A &E. This combination of oils is supposed to help improve skin's elasticity, firmness and prevent wrinkles. It can also prevent dark spot, pigmentation and stimulate cell regeneration for younger looking skin. The oil is also infused with Amber essence for superior comfort and efficacy. The first time I used the oil, I notice the distinct and natural scent that it has, this might not be everyone's cup of tea but I quite like the scent of this product. I applied a couple of drops in my hands and warmed them up before massaging my entire face for a minute or so. I like to use upward massaging motions with oils in order to stimulate blood flow and help keep the skin lifted over time (This isn't part of the instructions but I like to do that with most facial oils). The oil instantly absorbs into the skin leaving it feeling smooth, soft and firm. Also, I have noticed that it makes any fine lines instantly disappear, deeply hydrates the skin and gives a subtle healthy glow up until the next morning. It is supposed to be used once in the morning and once in the evening, but I like to use it at night only before my daily moisturiser. After using it for a month, I have to say it has become a must in my skin care routine and I cannot go a day with out it. My skin definitely feels firmer and more hydrated than ever - I also like how healthy and smooth my skin looks after incorporating this product in my routine. 

Overall opinion:
I'm quite impressed by the positive results this oil had on my skin. I highly recommend trying out this product if you're on the hunt for a potent facial oil, that will show results in just 30 days. The price point of this oil is on the higher end of the spectrum but I have to say it is worth every penny and I would definitely repurchase it again.

Note: Filorga Absolute Oil is priced at AED 515 from leading pharmacies across UAE including Bin Sina.
