I’ve long been a fan of Filorga, so when I found out that they were expanding into makeup and launching their first foundation, I was thrilled.
Lately, I’ve found myself struggling to find a foundation that perfectly matches my skin tone and disguises any blemishes, while still looking natural and ‘skin-like’. Most foundations I’ve tried end up sitting in my pores and creasing in fine lines and wrinkles, or they oxidise after a couple of hours of wear, leaving me looking a bit like an Oompa Loompa. I’ve also battled with products that look cakey and mask-like on my skin, but given that Filorga is renowned for their incredible skincare, I had high hopes for this beauty.
And I’m happy to report that Filorga Flash-Nude [Fluid] Pro-Perfection Tinted Fluid SPF30 (R520) did not disappoint! In fact, I’d go so far as to say that this is one of the best foundations I’ve ever tried! I usually have a preference for medium- to full-coverage foundations because I tend to struggle with hormonal breakouts and dark spots, but I’ve found that this tinted fluid works a treat at disguising blemishes – despite it being more of a natural-to-sheer finish. If I feel that I need a little extra coverage, I simply apply a little more product to the areas that need it most (or I haul out my trusty concealer).
It boasts broad-spectrum sun protection, along with powerful antioxidants, such as Niacinamide, to help prevent any damage caused by the sun, urban pollution, and other environmental stressors. And if you battle with pigmentation or dark spots (like I do) you’ll love the fact that it contains Hexylresorcinol, a botanical active ingredient that’s known for its brightening properties. This little wonder ingredient helps to inhibit melanin synthesis and reduces pigmentation spots by as much as 60% after 8 weeks of daily application. I’ve been using Filorga Flash-Nude [Fluid] Pro-Perfection Tinted Fluid SPF30 daily for about three weeks now, so I can’t quite report back on these claims, but you can be sure that I’ll be editing this post to add my findings towards the middle of November, so be sure to check back here (or follow me on Instagram) for my final thoughts!
I love the fact that Filorga Flash-Nude [Fluid] Pro-Perfection Tinted Fluid SPF30 leaves my skin looking dewy and instantly more luminous – like my skin, but better! It’s also very lightweight, to the point where I often forget that I’m wearing any foundation to begin with.
At R520, it’s a little on the pricier side for a foundation, but given the fact that this foundation offers a plethora of treatment benefits (like providing broad-spectrum sun protection, a bunch of hardworking antioxidants, and helps to reduce dark spots over time), I’d say it’s well worth it.
Filorga Flash-Nude [Fluid] Pro-Perfection Tinted Fluid SPF30 launched at the beginning of this month and is currently available at selected Edgars stores nationwide. It’s only available in two shades for the time being, so it’s not suitable for those with darker complexions (sadly).
Are you keen to give this foundation a go? I’ve tried several Filorga products in the past, and definitely think I need to do a few more reviews – is this a brand you’d be interested in learning more about? Do you already use their products? Leave a comment and let me know!
