The Immediate Concerns
The Indeed Labs website makes some claims regarding this cream including that is contains;
Linefill: a paraben-free, natural active derived from seeds of sesame (sesamin). This ingredient restores lost volume and minimizes the appearance of lines, particularly around the lip and mouth, leaving skin looking firmer and helping to restore the look of facial volume contours.and
Sym 3D: helps stimulate collagen production to correct and bring volume to the skin where it’s needed.If the all singing, all dancing part of this product is 'Linefill' from sesame seed extract then I'd be slightly concerned as sesame seed extract comes quite low down on the ingredients list. And Sym 3D, from what I can find is the tongue twisting Hydroxymethoxyphenyl Propylmethylmethoxybenzofuran which was created to prevent or reverse wrinkle formation but also is being called a 'long lasting lip plump' here.
Also the claim of hyaluronic acid being a fairly active ingredient is also dubious to my eyes as it appears nearly at the very end of the ingredients list.
Having said all that it does still contain many ingredients that are effective moisturisers, Isononyl Isononanoate for example an emollient skin conditioning agent that is beneficial for dry skin and many of the blue ingredients are either emollients or have humectant effects alongside their other uses.
Containing only two red ingredients at least it's not going to do anything nasty to you, the claims may be a bit over the top but it will still moisturise fairly well.
How Did It Fair?
This is actually my second bottle of Fillume, it applies nicely, has no scent that I can detect, and moisturises my skin well, however I don't suffer particularly dry skin being a combination/oily type.
I wouldn't say I'd stick religiously with this moisturiser but it really isn't bad at all for all the OTT claims that are made. I would probably buy it again at some point, a few more actual active and natural ingredients wouldn't go amiss though.
