REVIEW: Filorga Global-Repair Cream and Global-Repair Intensive Revitalising Serum

Filorga’s Global-Repair Cream and Global-Repair Intensive Nutri-Restorative Multi-Revitalising Serum contain a plethora of anti ageing ingredients to address skin concerns like lack of firmness, loss of volume, dark spots, signs of fatigue and undefined face contour. I was delighted to be sent them to try out; here’s what I thought….

Filorga Global-Repair Cream

Aimed specifically at mature skin, the latest Filorga Global-Repair Cream and Global-Repair Intensive Nutri-Restorative Multi-Revitalising Serum  offer some noteworthy ingredients to help regenerate, restore and strengthen skin for a luminous and renewed complexion.

If you’re a fan of Sisley’s cult Black Rose Cream read here then you’ll love Filorga Global-Repair Cream as much as I have from the very first application. A thick rich consistency leaves ones skin feeling super nourished and pampered. Like the former product this doubles up as an overnight mask. Here’s a quick break down of some of the active ingredients.

Filorga’s patented NCEF formula found in injectable mesotherapy contains antioxidants, vitamins and co-enzymes which help regenerate the cells from deep within, boost cell turnover and prevent cells against oxidation.

A cocktail of boosting vitamins, jojoba and evening primrose oils and super ceramides  strengthen and regenerate  the skin’s barrier while hyaluronic acid acts like a sponge helping skin to hold on to water. Peonies aren’t just pretty flowers, but contain a root rich in oligosaccarides that step up lipid storage  in the adipose tissues to help thicken skin so features are restored and redefined.

This powerful new anti-ageing range is extremely effective for those women with a devitalised, mature skin that want an ultra-effective skincare range that instantly tackles all the signs of skin ageing. It is the most powerful anti-ageing skincare range launched by Filorga to date and boasts very impressive results.”Filorga International Medical Advisor, Dr Rieke Smit

As I mentioned earlier the Global Repair Cream used as an overnight mask is super beneficial thanks to anti-ageing ingredients and despite my insomnia, my skin look surprisingly refreshed and rejuvenated! I used the cream on a daily basis over the serum and once or twice a week applied a thick layer just before climbing into bed – it feels soft and velvety and smells good too!

Filorga Global-Repair Cream and Global-Repair Intensive Nutri-Restorative Multi-Revitalising Serum 

The highly concentrated Filorga Global-Repair Intensive Nutri-Restorative Serum has active ingredients to effectively rejuvenate tired and lacklustre skin. With Hyaluronic Acid, Niacinamide and Retinol the serum simultaneously boosts collagen and cellular renewal to smooth wrinkles, restore firmness and deeply nourish the skin. These two products are really impressive and would definitely be on my re-purchase list!

PS: I’ve been a little frantic catching up on a backlog of merchandise and incorporating new ways of shooting at work- all very exciting but time consuming so I haven’t been as regular as I would have liked on the blog, BUT yay, I have found some balance to my days, so back to frequent blogging – my first love! Hoping you day is a bright and sunshiny day!!


(REVIEW): ALOE UNIQUE Age-Defying Day & Night Cream

With over twenty years experience in the aloe business, ALOE UNIQUE is a family run local brand whose core values include honesty and integrity, producing sustainable products of the highest quality at affordable prices. I just finished using ALOE UNIQUE Age-Defying Day and Night Cream and loved them; here’s why:

aloe unique age-defying day and night cream

“We combine the best of ancient and modern technology, blending vitamins with ecologically-harvested Aloe Ferox plant ingredients, preserving with a paraben-free formula and packing our high-quality range in recyclable containers”.


“By insisting on sustainable harvesting methods we preserve the plant’s natural occurrence, now and for future generations.”

Every now and then I go on a bit of a clean the mind and body trip, where I try to be a bit more mindful about what goes into and onto my skin (without becoming too self- righteous, I mean who can live without coffee and still enjoy life?!) So I was super chuffed to try out ALOE UNIQUE‘s paraben-free and environmentally friendly products. Indigenous to South Africa the wildly grown plant contains healing properties and double the amino acids to Aloe Vera, penetrating skin to its deeper level, thereby increasing hydration dramatically. Aloe Ferox has a dilating effect on capillaries, meaning an increase in nutrients can be transported into the skin. Aloe Ferox decreases skin sensitivity, soothes irritation and reduces inflammation. Rich in Vitamins A, B, C and E, all necessary for skin elasticity and increasing the production of collagen for nourished hydrated skin.


“Known for its incredible regenerative properties, Aloe Ferox has been a vital source of health and healing for centuries.”

The consistency of both products was lovely and rich, sinking into skin quickly and are non-greasy. I really love this range especially as it is home grown and the family business focuses on working with the community. “Their passion means that all aspects of the Aloe Unique brand is injected with innovation, whether it’s in the recyclable packaging, the natural ingredients or its collaboration with skincare technologists as far as Japan.” LOVE!
