Figs and Rouge skin care products were brought to us by, oh so amazing, Dutch box StyleTone beauty box. Every other month we received some of their full sized products. From the whole bunch of animal cruelty-free brands that we have discovered thanks to them, the F&R was definitely one of the biggest positive introductions of 2016.
When you read the philosophy behind the Figs and Rouge brand, you get an impression of some decent scientific work being done in the research and design. You can expect various products to focus on the specific imperfections and needs of your complexion.
From what we have seen the F&R cosmetics are divided into several lines, and each can help you fight various skin issues, for example:
- lack of moisture and ageing,
- large pores or dark spots,
Luckily, we tested the products on blemish prone, combination to oily skin that already needs extra anti-aging ingredients.
Figs & Rouge Pro-Acnéal Anti-Blemish Corrective+ Daily Lotion
The empty tube somehow survived since last year. The 50 ml of this transparent anti-blemish gel-lotion lasted for about two months of everyday use. Against the indications, the lotion was applied only once a day in the morning, before the Olay Total Effects moisturiser.
Btw, it made a fantastic base for the makeup.
The light formula was quickly absorbed into the skin. The appearance of pores was minimised; however, they still were visible. What makes Anti-Blemish Corrective Daily Lotion worth of the recommendation, is a visible improvement of the general skin appearance after just a few weeks.
On top of that a noticeable decrease in the creation of the new zits and blackheads. It might be due to the presence of the Sodium Salicylate that the uneven texture on the cheeks diminished almost to nothing. Big thumbs up!
Figs & Rouge Hydra-Activ Derma Renewal Hydra Riché Night Cream
This night moisturiser is filled with goodies. Like patented Smart Nutrient Technology and nourishing A, C and E vitamin complex, hyaluronic acid and Phutessence Blue Daisy Extract. It helped to reduce the appearance of the fine lines, no exaggeration. The skin was lovely hydrated. It was almost unnecessary to use additional hyaluronic acid in the morning.
Although the name suggests the night cream, the formula is more lotion like, very thin and liquidy. Perfect for normal to combination skin.
Avancé+ Invisible Pores Night Detox Serum
It has been only two weeks since this beauty arrived. It is a serious competition for our all time favourite Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher Serum from Estée Lauder. Besides beeing fabulous night serum, it can be successfully used as a pore minimising base before the makeup!
It feels great to see you skin clearing up. At this point, out of the all problematic areas, only the nose seems to have few stubborn blackheads left. But they also got smaller. It is almost beyond words.
If you have read our reviews before, you know that we do not exaggerate. We have quite high expectations and standards, so when we write this serum is a bomb, we mean it. It is very unusual to have clearer and more purified skin without it feeling stripped and dry. It was also one of the reasons, why the Idealist was our top choice.
Figs and Rouge – where to buy?
As you have probably noticed from the article, besides several different beauty boxes across the globe, the brand is for now exclusively available at feelunique.com. They do offer international shipping.
It is a real pleasure as beauty enthusiasts, to finally find a brand that keeps their promises.
