Product Review: Infusion Florale Concentré Micro-Liquid Serum

African Botanics has done it again. For weeks African Botanics had posted sneak peeks on their Instagram about their newest creation, the Infusion Florale Concentré Micro-Liquid Serum, and let me tell you, it was well worth the wait.

Infusion is a luxurious essence in the form of a silky, liquid-light serum. This brilliant “skin transformer / micro-serum hybrid” packs a punch! The Serum contains highly concentrated active phytonutrients, trace elements, humectants, antioxidants, and advanced molecular biochemistry to deliver a boost of hydration and to revitalize the appearance of the skin.

  • An age-defying regenerating matrix of Immortelle oligosaccharides, Micro-Algae, Seaweed, anti-pollution Oceanic Cell Shields, moisture-binding plant Peptide complex, and Marine glucans to improve texture, deeply revitalize skin, and form a dynamic skin barrier.
  • Kalahari Desert Salt, hand-harvested African desert and bush plants, Vitamin C Ester, CoQ10, Willow Bark, and Lactic Acid nourish and tone while also bringing clarity and luminosity to the skin.
  • White Lupine provides low molecular-weight glutaminated oligo peptides to help boost epidermal lipid synthesis and to reinforce the barrier function while infusing skin with hydration. 

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the other impressive key benefits of Infusion:

  • Provides optimized hydration and improves moisture retention
  • Protects from urban and indoor pollution
  • Shields skin from High Energy Visible (HEV) light
  • Smoothing and skin brightening
  • Helps soothe, calm and reduce redness while speeding the recovery of damaged cells

I’ve been using Infusion for the past two weeks now and I’m in love! Infusion has a watery texture and smells just like their Résurrection Cell Recovery Serum. I’m so used to using a mist or toner after cleansing, but I’ve been using Infusion right after cleansing as it is intensely hydrating. In both my daytime and nighttime routine, I pour a few drops of Infusion into the palm of my hand, press my hands together to evenly distribute the essence, and then gently pat it into my face. Most of the time, I don’t feel the need to apply another serum after (only if I’m feeling extra, lol), since the Infusion is full of actives. I then apply a face oil like the Fleurs d’Afrique Intensive Recovery Oil, and then sometimes a face cream like the Fleurs d’Afrique Intensive Recovery Cream — because, why not?

After application, my skin drinks it in immediately, and feels super-plump and supple. It literally feels like the Serum creates a weightless veil over my skin to lock in moisture, and to lift and firm the skin. After using Infusion for a couple weeks now, my skin barrier does appear a lot stronger.

Final Thoughts

I’m so impressed by Infusion, but I would expect nothing less from African Botanics. Once again they’ve created a stunning product with a technically-advanced formula using beautiful, potent ingredients. I’m relatively new to essences, but Infusion is what I imagine the perfect essence to be. I love that I can always rely on African Botanics because their products work — they don’t just talk the talk, they actually walk the walk. If you’ve ever tried any of their products, then you know what I mean. 😉

Infusion (100ml) retails for $200 USD and can be purchased directly from African Botanics.

    How would you compare this to the rose essence, nutritive molecule serum and cloudburst? Are they similar/interchangeable? Or would you suggest one more than others? So curious how infusion fits in!

      Hi Chrissy!

      The Rose Essence is like a hydrating serum. The Nutritive Molecule Serum is a Vitamin C serum and Cloudburst is a lightweight moisturizer. The texture of all three of these are gel-like. The Infusion is a micro-serum in the form of a watery essence! I wouldn’t say that they are all similar or interchangeable – the serums have different actives and concentrate on specific skin concerns. You can certainly use one or more of the serums at the same time – it really depends on what your skin concerns are! The way I would use these or apply them is: Infusion, Rose Essence, Nutritive Molecule Serum, Cloudburst. I hope this helps! xo
