I discovered Omorovicza, a Hungarian very pricey luxury skincare line, last year. I didn’t want to try any of it originally because of the price. Omorovicza uses great ingredients, and leaves out the bad stuff. I started with the Thermal Cleansing Balm, have now tried almost everything they make. I must admit my skin loves Omorovicza. I highly recommend them, and starting with a smaller set like the Hero or Introductory Kit is a great way to try several products and see if they work for you.
The Intensive Hydralifting Cream is one of my favorite creams they make, I use it at night. Per Omorovicza’s website: “A rich, yet easily absorbed, anti-aging moisturiser formulated for every day use, this Intensive Hydralifting Cream delivers instant lifting, visible plumping and prolonged, sustained firming.” The Key Benefits are:
- Plump and resurface lines and wrinkles while providing lasting hydration with hyaluronic acid; encapsulated and micro-injected.
- Visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles by tightening the skin’s surface with vegetal polysaccharide.
- Remodel the surface of the skin with an amino-acid dipalmitoyl hydroxyproline.
- Redensify and plump the skin with Arabian myrrh.
- Strengthen the skin’s immune system with bifida ferment.
- Brighten tone while providing an anti-oxidant defense against free radials with vitamin C.
- Leave skin firmer, more supple and younger-looking as Hydro Mineral Transference™ delivers minerals deep into the skin.
The main ingredients are: Hungarian thermal water, squalane, coconut triglyceride, olive oil derivavtive, methylsilanol mannuronate(seaweed derivative), glycerin, shea butter, beeswax, Hungarian thermal water ferment extract, dipalmitoyl hydroxyproline(DPHP-amino acid & fatty acid molecule for anti aging), vitamin C, sucrose palmitate(sugar fatty acid), plum seed extract, apricot kernel oil, glyceryl linoleate(fatty acid), vitamin E derivative, sodium hyaluronate, rose flower oil, vitamin E, commiphora mukul resin extract(Arabian myrrh), phospholipids, bifida ferment lysate(probiotic).
This is a pricey cream retailing for $225 for a 1.7 oz glass jar. The texture is a thinner cream that’s not greasy or heavy at all. It’s rich, yet absorbs quickly. This is the lightest cream they make. Next would be the Rejuvenating Night Cream, then the Blue Diamond Super Cream and the most heavy is the Gold Rescue Cream. This could be used for day for dry skin or possibly normal skin if you live in a drier climate. When I lived in Montana I could use this in the day if I wanted to. Here in Texas it’s almost becoming too much for me at this time of year with the humidity even for just night use. It has a very faint scent, nothing big. All of their stuff has a very pleasant faint light scent that’s a bit fruity, a bit floral and a bit earthy. By earthy I just mean natural, not that deep musty scent you can get from some more natural products that use a bunch of essential oils.
I love this cream. It’s the perfect amount of moisture for a night cream, absorbs quickly and gives results with great ingredients. With consistent use I notice my fine lines on my forehead do get better, when I stop using it to test something else they come back a little. My skin also feels plumper, more youthful and has a better texture when I use this consistently. I much prefer this to Creme de la Mer which I used for years, this doesn’t break me out like la Mer can, and it gives visible results which I never got from la Mer besides moisture.
My only complaint is while the glass jar is nice and luxurious, opening it daily and exposing it to air has the potential to degrade the ingredients over time. As well as putting your fingers into the jar every day can introduce bacteria and degrade the jar as well. This is why I use a clean scoop to fill a smaller 5ml plastic sample jar with the cream, then I only use the small jar to put my fingers into and open daily. I only have to open the big one once a month. This also takes less space in my cabinet. With a pricey cream in a jar I tend to do this. A glass pump would be awesome on this, or even a squeeze tube. Though they do feel or look as luxurious, they protect the integrity of the ingredients better.
