Filorga Meso-C Review

Filorga Meso-C After the astonishing effects of using a regular overnight exfoliant (see my Liquid Gold review and my ‘skincare secrets’ video) I decided that I would try out all manner of different brighteners and chemical ‘resurfacers’. There are so many out there, so it is taking me a while, but the ‘serum du jour’ is Filorga’s Meso-C. You will see Filorga mentioned quite a lot in the Summer Skincare Video – they’re a brand that’s not very easily available in the UK (except online at House of Fraser or in the Apothecary at selected branches), but in France they are a top-selling, well-respected skincare laboratory. Their research is in specialist aesthetic medicine and cosmetic surgery, so it’s no surprise that the skincare is very hi-tech and high-performance. It’s the kind of skincare, to put it bluntly, that you really need to read the instructions for.

Meso-C is a 21-day intensive vitamin C treatment. There are three vials (one for each week) and once a vial has been opened (concentrated powder mixed with the liquid, lid replaced with pipette) it must be stored in the fridge to keep the serum stable and effective. Every morning, after cleansing, the (nice and cool!) serum is applied to face and neck. At night-time, normal service is resumed and you can use whatever it is that you’re into. Unless you have very sensitive skin, in which case it’s not advised to also use an overnight peel or exfoliant of any kind. (See the dangers of over-exfoliation!)  This intensive dose of vitamin C is supposed to fight wrinkles, even out the complexion and boost cellular activity. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, so I suppose you’d expect to see an overall increase in brightness and clarity too..

Do you know, I have only done eleven days and I’m in awe of the results? The little dark patch on my cheek (from where I squeezed a spot in May, tut-tut!) has almost completely faded! My skin looks as though it has had some kind of soft-focus powder dusted across it – it’s somehow paler and more luminous. The overnight glycolic no doubt has something to do with these results too, but I’ve been using some form of glycolic exfoliant since May and so I know that the Meso-C is having its own effect. And I’m only on day eleven! Of course I shall report back after 21 days (although it seems that there’s enough serum to last twice that amount of time) but…so far so good!

For those who have been asking for a great product for brightening skin and taking down dark spots, this could be your answer. It’s not cheap – £60.50 – but you only need to do this 21-day routine once or twice a year. (And I reckon you could get away with only using two vials in 21-days, thus always having one left over…you catch my drift?) Make sure you use an SPF if you’re going out into the big wide world, as the Meso-C is kick-starting cell-renewal and bringing new cells to the surface faster. Protect the new cells, or it’s all pointless!

  1. Ruth, tis me again :P I know I’m only 22, but I want to try the Sleep and Peel- do you think it is appropriate? ( I have normal, slightly combination t-zone) THANKS

  2. Hi Ruth! Just found your post on this – got some Meso C on huge discount in House of Fraser and wanted to know if one should use this once a day in the morning or it can be used twice a day instead? I read on London Beauty Review that she used it morning AND evening and was wondering if that would be too much… Thanks!!

  3. A wonderful product if used correctly. The reason why it works so well is because the Vitamin C is with lots of Amino acids Vitamins and MInerals all found in healthy skin . They are made to be minute in size so it actually gets into the skin . When you have used your Sleep and Peel the night before the skin the next day is ready to really absorb the Vitamin C etc and it goes straight to work. Its done wonders for my skin . The Meso Mask really makes a massive difference in only one use i adore it your skin glows and leaves it looking brighter.

    Now the thing i have fo rnext month is the Mesotherapy treatment together with the Skin roller to get the ingredients deep into the skin layers to totally rejuvanate the skin deep down . That should be really exciting to see. when i went to Paris its sold every where and i saw many people with beautuiful skin buying it.

    The House Of fraiser in Leeds stopped selling it because i guess it was shoved in a corner with no information. But its an incredible range

  4. This looks like just the thing to get rid of a few annoying post blemish marks that I have. Do you use it under moisturiser?
    I’ve been following a similar skincare regime to you since july and have noticed a huge difference in my skin, but am struggling to work out how to fit in masks and treatments into it, so am wondering how often you use a mask, and if you follow it with your usual glycolic products?
    Thanks x

    • @Gillian I use a mask about once or twice a week on the non-glycolic days! I do a deep cleanse, sometimes with the Clarisonic and then I apply a lovely mask. I’ll be doing a video on it soon! xx

  5. just to let you know Meso Serum is £40 on Leguidesante at the moment

  6. And you don’t think that using this and the alpha-h liquid gold would be too harsh on the skin?

  7. i’ve been trying out la roche-posay effaclar serrum (has glycolic and LHA) and i almost feels like it might be making my generally normal-ish skin oily and clogging pores. i haven’t added other exfoliants as i’m a bit worried about over-exfoliating, but was wondering if you have found it necessary to use a separate, physical exfoliant when using a chemical exfoliant?

    • @Jamie no never. I mean, I use a scrub typed product once every couple of weeks, but it’s usually just because I feel like having a bit of a scrub, not that I think I need to! x
