All the way until really not so long ago, you have probably read sentences like “anti-aging is not yet my main concern” or something along that line here. While that might still be true somehow, I did notice my eye area taking the wrong turn some months ago. There was no better time to start testing out *Filorga Time-Filler Eyes, and I am so glad I did!
By the wrong turn, I don’t mean I started seeing real wrinkles or crow’s feet. However, I saw a fine line or two, and the undereye area also looked puffier. It is as if the skin had lost some firmness (oh the heartbreak).
Filorga Time-Filler Eyes (RRP in Belgium: 44,90 euros) is an eye cream that basically promises to solve every problem that you can see in the eye area. Be it wrinkles, sagging eyelids, thinning lashes, and dark circles. It comes in quite a chunky and minimalist-looking jar. Jar packaging is never my favorite, but with the texture, I think it is necessary evil. It has a light green tea scent (that doesn’t bother me or trigger allergies). The texture is between a really dense gel-cream or a light cream. It is rich enough for me, but it does not feel greasy. A little patting motion later, it is largely absorbed.
I have been using this twice a day for more than 2 months now. Despite the fact that it should be able to go straight on the eyelid, most of the time I restrict it to the skin underneath my eyes and along my orbital bone. Within the first couple of weeks, I saw general improvement in the eye area. The skin was well-moisturized, and the puffy “sagging” skin seemed to have tightened a little. I was very skeptical when I was told this would make my lashes thicker/longer, but to a certain extent I did notice a difference! My lashes became a little denser and stronger-looking. It might not be a difference that I can capture in a photo, but I can’t pretend it doesn’t make me pretty chuffed!
All in all, I am very impressed with Filorga Time-Filler Eyes. It has also got me thinking I should start embracing richer “anti-aging” eye creams. A while ago, I had the opportunity to ask the million-dollar question to a dermatologist:” when should I start using anti-aging products?” The answer is, it really varies from person to person. Your ethnicity, genes, skin type, lifestyles and so on all play a decisive role here. Some people may want to start sooner, and others can wait. The best indicator is actually just paying attention to your skin. Is it looking different? If so, could it be fatigue, stress, or the hormones? If the signs persist, then maybe it wouldn’t hurt to try something labeled as “anti-aging” to see how it works. I know that some of these products would be way too rich for my skin. Even if I start going down the anti-aging path in terms of eye cream, I might still have to stay with the less rich textures. But still. I am glad I tried this, and even more so because it worked!
