I’m always looking for the next best thing to keep my skin looking its very best and I’m so excited about these new launches from 3 of my favourite skincare brands. I’ve been using these three amazing products together, as part of my daily routine and my skin loves it…
Filorga Time Zero
I absolutely adore this product! I’m still a big, big fan of Filorga Perfect + Skin Serum, but since I started using the new Time-Zero, I’m not sure if I’ll go back to Perfect + again. Not because I prefer Time-Zero over Perfect +, but I just feel that Time-Zero is working so well for me right now, I wouldn’t want to change a thing. Make sense?
I also like that with Filorga Time-Zero I’m getting a tripple-filler effect and since I’m not a spring chicken anymore, the more power I can get into my skin to slow down visible signs of ageing, the better.
I’ve become more aware of fine lines developing on my forehead and on my neck, so I’m trying to stop them in their tracks. While I wouldn’t say they are deep wrinkles, they are definitely more contraction wrinkles, and Filorga Time-Zero targets not only deep and contraction wrinkles, but fatigue wrinkles and surface wrinkles too in a 360° approach.
Being a skincare brand focused on anti-ageing, Filorga is always top of my list to tackle fine lines and wrinkles.
The formula is a non greasy stretch-effect gel that also works as a beautiful makeup primer. You’ll also notice it has the most incredible packaging with Filorga’s ground breaking swirl technology, that not only looks beautiful, but this technology allows formulas that were previously incompatible, to co-exist in a single product, making life easier for you!

Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Skin Brightening Exfoliator
When I started using this product I didn’t really expect to see a visible difference. Now, I have to physically force myself not to use it every single day. It’s made such a difference to my skin, and I love that even after exfoliating, my skin doesn’t feel dry and in need of moisturizer. The biggest difference I noticed with this, is how much brighter and clearer my skin looked and even immediately after use, my skin just looks fresher while feeling squeaky clean.
I still suffer with Melasma, so I had no expectations of it removing that, but it certainly helps to clear up breakouts and other minor skin blemishes with prolonged use, and when used as part of a routine with Kiehl’s complete Clearly Corrective range.
It’s designed to not only clean the skin, but help boost the skin’s moisture and keep the moisture balanced.
The formula has tiny beads that are not abrasive, yet they still manage to create a pleasant exfoliation. A little goes a really long way, and I love how it lathers up on the face, feeling more like a cleanser than an exfoliator.
Although it does say to avoid the eye area, so you shouldn’t really use it to remove all your makeup, it does a pretty amazing job at removing foundation. On the odd occasion, when I’ve been lazy, I’ve used it to remove my eye makeup as well and haven’t had any problems with it.
Dermalogica Phyto Replenish Oil
I’m all for skincare oils. I usually slather them on my face at night and when I wake up, my skin looks radiant and healthy. This new treatment oil from Dermalogica is my ticket to dewy skin – the healthy way, and I love that I can use it in the morning since it’s feather light and absorbs in seconds!
Think of it as a 3 in one power oil and one that (1) restores the skin’s natural barrier, (2) smoothes out visible lines, locking in moisture, and (3) shield’s your skin against free radical damage.
What more could a girl ask for?
Dermalogica Phyto Replenish Oil comprises of plant-based active ingredients and can be used daily to restore depleted lipids in the skin, resulting in a natural, healthy glow
There’s a whole ritual, DIY to Dewy Skin that comes packaged with this product and shows you different ways to press this oil into your skin for maximum effort. For lazy girls, you can also mix it in with your moisturizer, but I love the feeling of the ritual.
