Indeed Labs Fillume | Review

The Fillume range from Indeed Labs was launched earlier this year, and I have spent the last few months incorporating both the serum and the moisturiser into my skincare routine.
Being the skincare junkie that I am, I always love trying new products, and if I feel they are worth mentioning, they will land right here on the blog. Both of these products were sent to me for trial and consideration, and I have really been enjoying them. To date, there are not many Indeed Labs products that have failed to impress me, and I continue to enjoy the fragrance free, well formulated and effective skincare products in their range.

 Indeed Labs fillume is a range designed to " put the bloom back in you skin ". 

Indeed Labs claim that fillume is "designed to work with the skin's matrix, and help improve the visual signs of ageing including loss of firmness, moisture and elasticity, and by helping to visibly plump furrow lines, nasal labial creases and crow's feet".

I certainly have all of those trouble spots, however I have not yet started to notice volume loss, or any sagging of my facial skin, thank goodness... one thing at a time thanks!

If you would like to hear my thoughts and experience, please keep reading!

Indeed Laboratories fillume volumizing serum  30ml  rrp $34.99 AUD.

Indeed Labs fillume volumising serum is a lightweight, hydrating serum that feels fresh and light on the skin, and absorbs quickly. It does contain some silicones, which contribute to it's velvety feel, but it does not feel silicone "heavy" in my opinion. The hero anti-ageing ingredients of this serum are Peptides. Indeed Labs state that this unique formula contains five peptides to help improve skin firmness, restore facial contours, improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, increase the skin's hydration level and stimulate skin renewal, and finally improve the tone and texture of the skin.

Applied topically to the skin over a period of time, it is believed that the peptides stimulate collagen production, thus aiming to restore some of the suppleness and plumpness of youthful skin. Peptides are often considered part of the "cell communicating " group of ingredients for that reason. It is this stimulation of the production of Collagen that is believed to assist in producing the anti-ageing results listed above. Collagen is known as one of the main proteins, or 'building blocks' with the skin's structure.

This serum also contains the water holding and preserving ingredients Glycerin and Hyaluronic acid to keep the skin hydrated, and help protect from moisture loss.

I have been enjoying using a pea sized amount of the serum in the mornings, after cleansing and then following with the Indeed Labs fillume moisturiser...

Indeed Laboratories fillume volumising moisturiser  30ml  rrp $39.99 AUD.

You may be able to tell from my photographs above that I am almost at the end of this moisturiser. I really like it. The pump mechanism makes dispensing the product easy and hygienic, which a lot of people will appreciate. One pump provides plenty of product to smooth over the face, neck, and d√©colletage. I would describe the texture as a gel/cream, very lightweight and refreshing, and absorbs quickly to leave a matte/natural finish on the skin. It feels hydrating without being too emollient, which my combo/oily/acne prone skin loves. I like to wait a minute or two prior to applying my makeup, and find that it makes a really nice base for my foundation. 
The fillume moisturiser reminds me of the texture, finish and results I saw when using Estee Lauder's Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging  moisturiser, which retails for a significantly higher price point. In my extremely humble opinion, try Indeed Labs fillume first, and save yourself a bit of hard earned money.

Worthy of note, there are three types of alcohol in the ingredient list, however, they are not to be confused with the more damaging alcohols, such as denatured alcohol or SD alcohol. The alcohols present in this moisturiser are actually thickening, softening agents, often derived from coconut, or other oils, or manufactured synthetically, and are not damaging to the skin.

If I could use one word to describe how these two products make my skin feel, it would be Plump. I could notice a difference in my skin in the first week of trialing. It had a definite plumpness, and bounce. Over the next few weeks I could definitely see my fines lines and the wrinkles on my forehead becoming softer and less noticeable. My skin just looked generally healthier. As I mentioned at the beginning of the post, I don't really suffer from loss of volume, or thin, sagging skin, so I cannot comment on the claim of the restoration of facial contours.

Now correct me if I wrong, but I believe that results, particularly with peptides are best seen over a reasonable length of time, several months or more, and you need to be using them fairly consistently as well. This is true of many skincare ingredients.... we are often so eager and impatient, wanting immediate, visible results. Sometimes, you just need to be patient and consistent. ( I'm old, and I am allowed to say that! ). I am also of the belief that there are many great anti-ageing skincare ingredients out there, but protecting your skin everyday with a broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF is well known to be the most effective anti-ageing step you can incorporate into your skincare routine.

I would not hesitate to warmly recommend Indeed Labs fillume serum and moisturiser if you are noticing some visible signs of ageing, and your skin needs a bit of plumping! I really enjoy them both, and will certainly be keeping these in my skincare rotation.
