Prime Time! Time Flash Express Smoothing Primer- Filorga

I love my skincare ritual, it’s my “me” time, but I have to admit that primer is a step I usually skip out, as once I have moisturized my skin, my makeup is very quick and easy (less is more!) and I’m usually out the door in about 5 minutes. I’m also fortunate that I don’t have many skin issues, such as acne scars ot texture that could possibly benefit from a thin layer of primer.

However, I was intrigued when Filorga came out with the new Time-Flash primer- to my knowledge, the first ever by Filorga! And because they are serious about skincare, this had to be a goodie…

What Filorga says:

It’s a double-action primer that provides an instant smoothing effect along with the added benefit of long-term anti-wrinkle treatment.

 Lift Action

This unique new formulation contains 3D-polysaccharides which link together with hydrogen and adhere to the skin’s surface to instantly form a continuous, tightening film that restores tension to the skin tissue, for an immediate lifting action.

Blur Action

Silicon elastomers provide a filling effect, thus helping to blur wrinkles and visible pores providing a softy, silky finish.


A multi-correction anti-wrinkle complex containing ingredients inspired by aesthetic medicine help to provide a long-term, anti-ageing effect on the four different types of fine lines and wrinkles:

  • Gluconolactone, a peeling-like active ingredient, gently resurfaces the skin to help reduce surface wrinkles.
  • A Botox-like hexapeptide helps to relax contraction or expression lines in a controlled, lasting manner without freezing the features.
  • Time-Flash incorporates ingredients inspired by anti-ageing mesotherapy to smooth wrinkles caused by sagging. Filorga’s patented NCTF complex containing minerals, vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants provides deep-down cellular revitalisation. A collagen booster composed of two high-performance matrikines stimulates collagen synthesis to help redensify tissues to assist with sagging.
  • A high molecular weight hyaluronic acid booster deeply moisturises tissue to assist with dehydration wrinkles.


What I thought:

I tested this primer for a few weeks and I really love how it gives my skin an absolutely flawless finish. It’s super melting formula glides on easily- you only need a pea-sized amount. I applied to the cheek area near my nose, where pores are more visible, on my chin and nose and middle of my forehead. It’s best to leave it on for a few minutes before applying BB cream or foundation. It smells gorgeous and makeup seems to last a lot longer and doesn't settle into fine lines.

This is great for normal to dry skins, with the added benefit of anti-ageing ingredients. Big plus!
