Beautiful packaging with nothing to deliver. When I first received Fleuresse, I was really impressed with how well everything was packaged. From the outside in, it showed class and sophisticated elegance. Wrapped in plastic, it guaranteed that only my hands would be touching what lays inside the package. I felt special, thinking that I was about to experience pure luxury for my skin. To my dismay, it was the complete opposite.
The Fleuresse Go Kit is developed for a 7 day (one week) use of night and day skincare treatments. It consists of a cleanser, serum, day cream, night cream and an eye cream. Fleuresse states on their website, “The Fleuresse skincare system, hydrates, nourishes and accelerates skin cell regeneration to reveal brighter, more youthful looking skin.” They also state on their website, “Kyani combines the remarkable ingredients we have used for years in the Triangle of Health-Blueberry, Noni and Tocotrienol Vitamin E with plant stem cell extracts from a rare variety of Swiss apple”. They also go on to state, “this blend of natural ingredients”, which would be great if those were the only ingredients used. These ingredients that are used on their home page of the Flueresse as their opening statement are misleading. Delving further into the ingredients of their products, I was utterly in shock by the lengthy list. For the Fleuresse Day Crème Ingredient list, I counted 64 ingredients. Sixty-four! Never have I seen such a long list of ingredients, especially with the word “natural” being used to describe it.
Above is the ingredient list for Fleuresse Day Crème. As you can see, it took me three screen shots to capture all of the listed ingredients. Look closer at the ingredient list, particularly to the first five listed ingredients:
- Hexlyene Glycol
Two forms of chemically derived silicone are listed as number 2 and number 3. What does this mean for your skin? It is a great filler on your skin, helps to give your skin that smooth touch and smooth appearance by helping to “fill in” fine lines on your skin. It also is a film on your skin and just sits there. It does not penetrate into the skin and deliver amazing results that the other ingredients would that were listed in their Triangle of Health. These two are great ingredients to use as a primer for your makeup but not for using as a skincare treatment intended to “hydrate, nourish and accelerate skin cell regeneration”.
Using the cleanser, I felt like I was using a cheap lotion from the all-a-dollar store. I never felt that I was getting a deep cleanse. If it weren’t for the use of my Clarisonic with my cleanse, I would have felt that I was layering on cleanser after cleanser, day after day. The serum had a nice glide to it but I had to use more of the product because it would dry up too fast. Applying the Day Crème and the Night Crème on my skin, I felt like I was reapplying the cleanser. There was no change in scent, texture or amount used for application. The eye cream had a brightening color of pink hue which was my favorite choice out of the entire kit.
What I experienced with the Fleuresse Go Kit is that my skin got drier. I never once saw a “brighter, more youthful” appearance on my skin as they state it will do. It felt like I was applying silicone to my skin everyday. Fleuresse created an illusion. They began with the packaging, artistically creating an aesthetic appeal to the eye and for their product they filled it with silicone to help deceive the consumers eye for it delivers no benefits to the skin.
Flueresse Go Kit receives 2.0 stars.
