Whether you’re missing your holiday lie-ins, or you’re exhausted from the festive season, this new launch from Filorga is just what you need.
The NCEF-Night Mask is basically 8 hours’ sleep in a jar. It was developed to improve the skin’s repair processes regardless of how little sleep you’ve had. The result? Waking up to a plumper rested complexion.
The formula contains hyaluronic acid and 50 skin regenerating ingredients to fill wrinkles, boost firmness and increase radiance while you sleep.
Wrinkles are tackled with Melatonin’CX, a silk tree extract that activates your natural sleep regulator to trigger your skin’s repairing processes.
Hyaluronic acid pairs up with collagen to boost hydration and help reinforce the skin’s structure to increase firmness.
Red Indigo extract has also been added for it’s detoxifying properties. It is a strong antioxidant that helps combat redness, as well as reducing cortisol production (that’s the stress hormone).
Filorga International Medical Advisor Dr. Riekie Smit says, “Sleep has a major impact on the appearance of young, healthy-looking skin. Research has shown that women who sleep less than five hours a night appear four to five years older than those who get seven hours’ sleep. NCEF-Night Mask is literally like eight hours of sleep in a mask. From the first application, the skin is radiant and rested, providing a wonderful overall refreshed appearance upon waking.”
The first time I used it, I couldn’t believe the results. My skin looked like I’d just had the most radiance-boosting facial, but I’d just woken up. I’m in my mid-thirties, so have noticed that it takes a while for my skin to wake up in the morning, and the chest wrinkles take their sweet time in smoothing out.
I use it twice a week on my face, neck and décolletage, and wake up to beautifully glowing skin. The texture is wonderful, as it’s a lightweight gel that absorbs almost instantly so you don’t lose the product to your pillow. Filorga fans may know the Sleep-Recover Anti-Fatigue Night Balm – this is similar, but I much prefer the formula on this one, as it’s less sticky.
You’ll find the Filorga NCEF-Night Mask at selected Edgars, Edgars Beauty and Clicks stores nationwide for R899 for 50ml.
