How many times have we spent a hefty amount of cash on a product that doesn’t do what it claims?! Canadian brand Indeed Labs is here to bare all with simplistic yet attractive packaging and some impressive skincare technology. All products are paraben free, fragrance free, colourant free, sulfate free, and not tested on animals. High five to this beauty brand from my home country!
This is my first time using Indeed Labs and I was introduced to the award winning nanoblur, and the fillume volumising duo which launched in September 2015- the fillume volumising serum and fillume volumising moisturiser.
The nanoblur ($19.99) is one of the most popular products from Indeed Labs; claims to smooth and soften the appearance of fine lines, enlarged pores, uneven texture and tone…who wouldn’t be intrigued as we know we want high definition skin without putting in much effort!
nanoblur uses advanced optical prism technology- light is diffused by micro-prisms to make the skin look smooth. It is neither a moisturizer nor a primer; it can be used over top of liquid makeup or underneath powder makeup. However, I’ve been wearing it as a primer or over my moisturizer without makeup. I don’t use powder foundation and found it a bit tricky to use over liquid foundation. When I tried nanoblur over Make Up For Ever Ultra Hd Invisible Cover Foundation, my foundation sort of rolled together.
When worn alone, nanoblur wipes away the shine and makes my pores/blackheads less visible. I can’t tell you what it does on fine lines (yet,) but this has certainly been making my skin more smooth looking than it is! My nose looks like it had one of those pore strips on and then removed!
Now that I’m 25, it’s KINDA the time to start looking into anti-aging, or to prevent aging. The fillume Volumising serum ($29.99) contains five clinically proven peptides to add some plumpness and elasticity and restore facial contours. There is something called “Linefill,” produced from seeds of sesame, to enhance fat cells. Dimethicone is third on the ingredient list; there are silicones in this serum which helps with the skin smoothing. Again, I can’t say for sure how well it will do for me currently, anti aging-wise, as I don’t have much lines, but it’s an inexpensive serum that makes my skin hydrated and ready for makeup application.
The fillume Volumising Moisturiser ($24.99) is used in conjunction with the serum to deliver hydration and even skin tone and texture. It contains “Sym3D” that helps in stimulating fat cells to rebuild volume and “Synhycan tripeptide” to generate hyaluronic acid (ding ding ding!) My skin does feel plumper after using it for a few weeks now (take a shot everytime I mention ‘plump’ in this post hah.) By the way I measure plumpness by closing my eyes and feeling both sides of my face.
The volumising moisturiser has a neat packaging; the cream is dispensed via a pump so the moisturiser isn’t exposed to the environment. It is thicker than other moisturizers I’ve used in the past and I didn’t find it as hydrating as I hoped even with using the serum before hand.
I can’t guarantee if Indeed Labs’ anti-aging magic has been working yet, but if I still get recognized as a 18 year old when I’m 28, then I’ll have to stock up on more of this stuff. The fillume line has shown good results so far and the price point helps me enjoy these products more and recommend them to people looking for a solid skincare line. I’m always looking for products like nanoblur to make my nose look photoshopped, and I love the immediate effect of blurring it does!
