If there’s anyone who knows how to produce top-notch beauty products, it’s the French. Understated elegance, natural allure, and the mantra “less is more” are all things you can expect from these luxury formulas. But of course, not all products are as revolutionary as the next—some offer a little extra to truly transform the skin, like the formulas hailing from Laboratoires FILORGA. The brand’s 10-day treatment is capable of mimicking the effects of injectables alone.
The French beauty brand is paving its way in the space of needle-less botox-alternatives. By combining two of their cult-favorite products, the NCEF Shot Serum and their Hydra Hyal Serum, users may witness incredible results in a matter of days, such as a restored youthfulness and reinvigorated glow.
The brand’s star ingredient is its NCEF, New Cellular Encapsulated Factors, which is a “proprietary blend of 50 ingredients including vitamins, amino acids, minerals, coenzymes, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid.” The brand’s founder was inspired by aesthetic medicine and the power of injectables, amazed by the way they mimic the composition of our skin. This technology penetrates each layer of skin (100 of them, to be exact) through a 24-hour, time-release capsule. According to the brand, daily applications of the serum “deliver the equivalent of one meso-injection.”
FILORGA’s NCEF Shot Serum is a 10-day treatment that effectively targets wrinkles while adding firmness and radiance. It’s recommended to use twice a day, followed by four times a year for upkeep once the 10-day mark has passed in order to maintain results akin to a cosmetic treatment, such as filler. While it retails for a minimum of $104, the powerful complex has been deemed worthy of every penny by loyal users online. “Quickly improves skin texture in face, neck and hands. Noticeable difference in just a few days. Amazing product,” wrote one person.
While the NCEF Shot Serum is enough to transform the skin alone, its benefits are further amplified when paired with the Hydra-Hyal Serum, a nourishing complex that “delivers 5 types of natural-origin hyaluronic acids deep into the skin”, alongside FILORGA’s NCEF technology. Sophora Japonica extract, an antioxidant that fights against skin aging, was also incorporated into the formula. The product promises skin improvement in just seven days, also eliminating the need for fillers or needles. Reviewers agree its benefits are no joke: “My fine lines are diminished and my skin is glowing. The overall texture has improved greatly,” wrote one.
If you want to shop FILORGA’s NCEF Shot Serum and their Hydra-Hyal Serum, we’d suggest running, not walking to their website now. From what we’ve heard, it’s hard to get your hands on its best-selling products, some of which are flown in from Paris itself to meet the demands of their overseas customers.
