It’s Time to Face the Music and Embrace… Filorga Time-Filler Eyes

Filorga Time-Filler Eyes review

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 packaging

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.

Filorga Time-Filler Eyes texture

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!

    Nice! I started noticing some real crow’s feet happening in the last 6 months or so. I just got a Kiehl’s eye cream, but it’s too soon to tell if it’s doing anything. Fingers crossed!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Tracy, I hope it’ll work for you! People keep saying the eye area is really delicate and so on. Now I know it IS true!

  • http://redhotjillypeppers.com/ Redhotjillypeppers

    I love Filorga ! But how is it supposed to make your eyelashes thicker ? I can’t imagine applying cream on them :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Jill, I don’t apply the cream ON my lashes. I think some gets onto them when I pat the cream into my undereye area with my eyes closed :)

    What a pity, I received a sample of this at a parfumerie yesterday and binned it! I am very happy with my Sisleya Eye and Lip Contour Cream, though. After a brief detour to La Mer the Eye Concentrate we are back together and life is peachy. I have been lucky, I am very old and have no crow’s feet, only fine lines. I have bought eye creams since my early twenties but if i am perfectly honest I only really started *using* them in my late 20’s!.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Bella, aww that is a pity! Although if you have already found something you love so much, maybe it’s a good idea to stick to it! I started using eye creams pretty early, but I suffer from allergies so sometimes I rub my eyes…. Can’t be good for the delicate skin!

    Sounds like a real gem you have there! I’ve always had trouble with dark circles and puffiness, so eye cream is something I’m very into. Since getting lazik a year back, my eyes and eye area seems to have gone dry, so I’ve had to up the richness of my eye products, but I do get milia build up very easily, which means I can’t go too creamy… My current preference is an eye serum under a light eye cream.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey girl, have you tried an eye cream with caffeine? Those are good at de-puffing in my experience. I have also tried an eye cream or two that gave me milia, so I’m glad that while this one is rich enough, it doesn’t do that!

      If you like eye serums, make sure you try the Estee Lauder ANR one! I have so much love for that one. I’m squeezing the last bit out of my bottle, and then I might just have to repurchase.

      • 38noodles

        I love the EL ANR serum too, have used up like 3 bottles, and will be picking up a few more at duty free perhaps. My bags puffiness seemed to have been more tamed as long as I do the serum step.

  • BeautiesEva

    I don’t use any anti-aging products yet :) i’m having the opposite of old skin: acné!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Oh there is a whole array of products out there that can help you! Just keep up with your routine. The situation will improve!

  • http://www.beautyloves.be/ BeautyLoves

    I started using anti-ageing at younger age (early twenties), not all the time and always combined with hydrating products, so I guess you could say I’m a fan. My skin can look pretty dull and grey so I felt I needed it. Haven’t tried this Filorga eye cream yet, though!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey girl, it sounds like you made a great decision! I think this is what I’ll do from now on, too.

  • http://jadeinthepalace.blogspot.com/ Cassandrapamela

    this sounds very good! but I haven’t heard about the brand before..
    I use eye serum from clinique and then I apply vaseline on the eyelids ( my mom has been doing it since she was 15 and she’s 45 now and has minimal wrinkles around the eyes :-D)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Pamela, this is a French brand that is still expanding. I’m relatively sure it’s a bit everywhere in Europe.

      Oh wow vaseline! I’ve never thought about that! Glad to hear it’s worked so well for your mom!

  • http://www.abeautifulzen.blogspot.ca/ jenn @Abeautifulzen

    yea like you, i woudln’t have believed all its claims and usually think eye creams are a but of a hoax but this actually seems to work! always a wonderful surprise, i find.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I am in camp eye cream to be honest. I know that some think great moisturizers should be enough for the eye area, but the truth is the rest of my face does not need the same amount of moisturization, so I need a separate one anyways!

  • http://papayapieces.com/ Sofia

    Even though I usually go by my own judgement/formula knowledge when I buy cosmetics, but when it comes to eye cream I usually let (only knowledgable) sales assistants assess if I need a heavier one or not. Until now they’ve only ever advised that I need like the lightest basic ones from ANY brand I choose. Though maybe I should try a heavier antiaging one just to see what happens.
    Thicker lashes??? Maybe this is the one I should try!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      If you’re not seeing signs of aging, you might as well save some money and go for the basic hydrating ones!

      I don’t think it’s as effective as lash growth serums (though I’ve never tried one and I can’t tell you if any of those really work), but my lashes really seem stronger!

  • http://www.beautyfrontline.com/ Beauty Frontline

    Sounds great! I use eye cream from Himalaya and its good :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I’m glad you’ve found something that works for you!

    • http://adorableshe.com/ nausheen

      Really, currently i am using almond eye cream from VLCCand i am not satisfied with it

      • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

        Aww I’m so sorry to hear that! I hope you’ll find something you like next time you get an eye cream.

  • http://lipstickintheattic.blogspot.com/ Judith

    That’s quite an extensive list of ingredients! I’m curious about Filorga, a lot of women rave about them here! The brand is not available in North America

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Judith, I think Filorga is still expanding. Since we’re next door neighbors with France, naturally the brand is more known here :)

  • Patricia Gomes

    Filorga is a wonderful brand. I love their Hydra-Filler moisturizer. I’ll be checking out this eye cream for sure!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I’m glad that moisturizer works for you! I haven’t tried a lot from the brand, but they have these gloves that are supposed to improve hand/nail conditions. I’m sorely tempted!

  • http://www.thepaintedrogue.wordpress.com Syirael

    Interesting! I have about a million samples of Lancome’s Genifique eye cream, so I use those, but I’m not sure if it’s making a difference :-P Still, it seems to moisturise the area, so that’s a plus at least!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Syl, I haven’t tried that one yet! If you don’t have a “problem” in your eye area, I think you won’t see much difference though!
