Indeed Labs Fillume Moisturiser and Serum

Fillume is the latest launch from Indeed Labs, and it makes some pretty bonkers claims.  It is, apparently, a volumising moisturiser, designed to plump out the skin and improve facial contours, all in a bid to target the appearence of 'subtle facial volume loss'.  I don't really know what 'subtle facial volume loss' actually is - the only loss of volume my face suffers is when I stop talking (usually because I'm eating or drinking wine).  Luckily though, the plumping and hydrating effects sound nice enough.

Anyway, confusion over volume aside, there are two products in the lineup - a moisturiser, packaged in that glorious sealed pump pot thing Indeed are so good at; and a serum, packaged in a simple squeezy tube.  The serum is a very lightweight affair - it spreads easily over the skin and sinks in quickly, leaving no residue behind.  The moisturiser is a little heavier, as you'd expect - it takes a bit of massage for it to sink in fully, and it does leave a bit of residue behind.  Nothing awful, though, and I've actually found it to be a pretty useful residue when I apply a dryish foundation directly on top of it.

I've been using both products for about a month now, and I reckon that you can sod all this volume nonsense, and just look at these two products as extremely effective at moisturising and plumping the skin.  My skin feels lovely and smooth, and remains hydrated thoughout the day - a little too effectively with the serum as well as the moisturiser in fact, as I've found I get a little shiny, so I've been sticking to using the serum at night.

They're also reasonably inexpensive too - £24.99 for the moisturiser, which is worth it for the moisturising effects and the spill and contamination proof packaging, and £29.99 for the serum, which in the grand scheme of things isn't too expensive for a hydrating serum.  If you suffer from dehydrated or dry skin, these are definitely worth a try.
