Last month Beauty Bloggers from Karachi, along with some media persons were invited to the official launch of FILORGA Laboratories, Paris in Pakistan. We were also given a goody bag, which consisted of amongst other things one of their top products from the range of OPTIM EYES. I shall be reviewing that product today.
ABOUT THE BRAND
ABOUT THE PRODUCT
Filorga Optim-Eyes Lotion is the first three-phase lotion that combines an eye make-up remover with a serum to moisturise and revitalise the skin, while strenthening lashes.
- Two phase make-up removal:
An oleo clean complex instantly removes all eye-makeup even waterproof.
- Serum phase:
A stimulating peptide reduces the sign of fatigue with each application and a protein booster makes lash stronger for longer.
Lets start with packaging: the product comes in a sturdy plastic cylindrical bottle with a white twist off cap. The quality of the bottle is very good and not cheap at all. The product is oil based, which can be seen easily when the bottle is shaken or even when it is still. There is no scent to the product, which is good for sensitive eyes so as not to irritate them.
It is best to shake the bottle properly before use. Pour some on a cotton ball, put the cotton over the eye for 30 seconds or so and wipe gently. Voila! all make-up gone in a single swipe. This product is very hydrating for the eye area, as it has serum properties. It is also very gentle on the eye lashes. Usually while removing mascara from the lashes, I notice one or two lashes falling off. BUT with this eye-makeup removing lotion I noticed no lash fall out. I was pleasantly surprised.
I tested this lotion with a couple of products namely:
- TARTE lights, camera, splashes waterproof mascara.
- Jordana color extend, all day wear, waterproof eyeliner in Blackout.
- Essence, Valentine-who cares? Smoky Eye-shadow stick.
- STILA Magnificent Metals Glitter and Glow Liquid Eye-shadow.
My experience with all the above products was very good. I chose the waterproof versions for the mascara and eye pencil. Both the TARTE and Jordana products came off in a single swipe. I hold the pre-soaked cotton ball for 30 seconds on the area that needs attention and then wipe off gently. This helps to melt the makeup off and ensures no tugging and rough swiping.
With the Essence smoky eye shadow stick, which I tell you is pretty good and long-lasting. Once set it doesn’t budge till it is removed. I experienced the same result. It came off beautifully. With the STILA magnificent metals glitter and glow liquid eye-shadow, as it has glitter in it, I wanted to see how this removes? And even with this, the glitter came off perfectly. Yes, with the glitter it took two swipes BUT I was so glad it worked equally good for all the products.
After using the FILORGA Optim eyes lotion, I felt my eye area:
- There was no itching or burning.
- There was no lash fallout.
I would say this is a pretty good product to add to ones makeup removal brigade. Eye makeup removes perfectly with this remover, even water-proof. There is no itching or burning. The eye area is hydrated and lashes are fortified. What more can one want? The best part is, for me, this product delivered what it claimed 🙂
