If you’ve been reading along on Storybook Apothecary, you know that some of my first posts were about Omorovicza, particularly the amazing Thermal Cleansing Balm.
See the review for that – here!
They have such a beautiful line of products and I was lucky enough to be sent some samples from them recently – 2 each of the Complexion Enhancer SPF15, Illuminating Moisturizer, and the Deep Cleansing Mask.
If you’re unfamiliar with Omorovicza, they are a high end luxury skincare brand from Hungary that utilizes natural ingredients such as Rose, Apple Pectin, and their Trademarked Mineral Technology.
Here’s What I Received:
I really wasn’t able to use any of these for a prolonged period of time. I was able to use the Deep Cleansing Mask four times, the Illuminating Moisturizer for about one week and the Complexion Enhancer SPF 15 for about one week as well.
Complexion Enhancer SPF15
This product is raved about by so many beauty editors and bloggers alike and is the winner of beauty awards around.
The product’s consistency is very light and serum-like.
The coverage is super light and airy, just like a tinted moisturizer; it goes on smoothly, but offers little to no coverage for anyone who has spots, breakouts or dark circles so be sure to use a separate concealer with this if you have any concerns with that.
My experiences with this are that it offers really no coverage at all. I really like the consistency of this complexion enhancer a lot, it doesn’t clog pores, and and the pigment is just brightening enough to give a subtle glow to medium skin tones.
This is definitely not for those who are super pale or fair. In fact, if I hadn’t gotten any sun recently, I wouldn’t be able to use it as I’m normally quite pale, but anything in the medium beige range to darker tones can wear this comfortably as a tinted moisturizer and the overall finish and effect is quite nice.
This is the one product out of the samples that just fell flat for me. I really like the consistency of this and it smells quite pleasant, but the overall effects seemed muted on me. It may be because I just didn’t have more time to use this and a week may not be long enough to see the full effects of this, but either way, I just wasn’t impressed by this.
I think that drier skin types may benefit more from this than those with oily to combination types.
That being said, it does hydrate the skin well, it didn’t cause any adverse reactions and for that, I feel it’s a good moisturizer.
Is it worth the $150 price tag?
Not to me, but it may be to someone.
Deep Cleansing Mask
This was the star of the samples for me!
I can certainly see why other beauty bloggers rave about this mask.
It does an incredible job of unclogging pores and brings out any and all dirt and debris that is sitting underneath the skin.
That being said, the next day, your skin may look pretty horrific, but after a day or so, your skin will look clearer and brighter.
I absolutely loved this cleansing mask and would be the $113 price tag to get a full size of it!
Definitely recommend this one!
