After BB There Is CC: Omorovicza Complexion Corrector SPF20

Omorovicza Complexion Corrector SPF20

While all the companies have been launching one BB cream after the other, we’re beginning to hear about CC creams. While definitions vary and companies will no doubt come up with their own versions, my first CC cream, Omorovicza Complexion Corrector SPF20 (30ml. 120 euros) has been nothing short of impressive!

Omorovicza CC cream review

Omorovicza Complexion Corrector SPF20 promises to “give skin a flawless and radiant appearance, this silicone-free formulation corrects unevenness, brightens tone and diminishes the appearance of age spots. Physical UV filters, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, provide SPF20 protection against UVA/B rays.” It contains ingredients such as hyaluronic acid (plumping), vitamin C (boosting collagen and elastin production), watercress leaf extract (brightening and correcting), ruby crystal (diffusing light), and so on.

Omorovicza Complexion Corrector SPF20 comes in a very sturdy glass bottle with a pump. The cream is white with tiny light-reflecting particle (ruby crystal. It’s the same with what’s in their Complexion Perfector BB SPF20) when it is pumped out, but it disappears into the skin tone once it is blended out. It has a light sunscreen smell, but no specific scent otherwise.

I know there is not much point “swatching” this, but I still did it anyways:

The effect is very interesting to say the least! The first thing you will notice is an incredible amount of instant brightening. I received the bottle at the end of March, and let’s just say March isn’t the most skin-friendly month. Most of the time my skin looked so dull that I appeared almost sick, and I couldn’t get away with what I can normally get away with. Once I put Omorovicza Complexion Corrector SPF20 on however, things suddenly look a lot brighter (literally)! Just to give you an idea, if you pat this in your undereye area, chances are you are going to see a visible improvement. It will be less dark, and your eyes will look lifted!

While the corrector offers instant brightening, it doesn’t make my skin look “dewy” all over. Again, like the Complexion Perfector BB SPF20, it pretty much keeps my skin in the same state as it has just been washed all day. I apply my serum (still Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum. My second bottle is rapidly coming to an end), and depending on how dry my cheeks are, sometimes a bit of Caudalie Moisturizing Sorbet¬†before Omorovicza Complexion Corrector SPF20. I can leave it as it is, and my skin definitely looks more even-toned, even-textured, and plumper. It has no “coverage,” but it blurs out imperfections efficiently.

Here you can see Omorovicza Complexion Corrector SPF20 blended out on the right side of my hand. The difference might not seem too significant (because there aren’t as many imperfections in a way), but the right side definitely looks smoother and more even-toned compared to the left:

Omorovicza Complexion Corrector SPF20 layers well underneath tinted moisturizers and foundations. As a matter of fact, because it is capable of keeping sebum protection on my T-zone under control as well as my cheeks hydrated, I love it the most as a primer. It delays the need to blot for hours (say I normally have to blot after lunch, with this underneath my foundation it can be late afternoon/early evening), and my foundation goes on more easily and holds up better.

The only thing that you might have to keep in mind about Omorovicza Complexion Corrector SPF20 is the fact that it could produce a white cast in photos when it is worn on its own. Underneath a tinted moisturizer or foundation I haven’t noticed this problem, but on its own it’s not so photogenic.

Here is the ingredient list. Note how it is silicone-free!

Omorovicza Complexion Corrector SPF20 ingredients

Bottom line: Omorovicza Complexion Corrector SPF20 instantly brightens the skin, evens out skin tone, and gives it a generally healthier appearance. It keeps my combination skin balanced throughout the day, adds radiance without an overall dewiness, and the SPF20 is the cherry on top! I would recommend this especially to people who want a good primer but are allergic to silicone, as it performs superbly well as one!

Have you tried any CC creams? Where do you stand on this trend?

    glad it works good for you :)

    • Sunny

      Yup Omorovicza BB/CC creams are both able to keep my skin in a pretty good, normalized state!

  • http://willworkformakeup.blogspot.com/ Tiffany

    Great post, Sunny! Omorovicza has definitely piqued my interested lately as a brand in general, and this complexion corrector sounds like yet another great product! It’s a bit out of my price range, unfortunately, but I don’t doubt for a second that it’s worth it :) Anything that brightens my complexion gets a thumbs up in my book!

    • Sunny

      Hey Tiffany, the owner of Omorovicza did say on Twitter that the sample sachets are in production. Maybe you should give it a go when they’re available to see if it works!

  • http://leisurelysensitive.blogspot.nl Yak Man

    Wow that is expensive :o. And haha they use special water :’). Even though it is expensive it sounds like a great product!

    • Sunny

      Yeah I know what you mean. I like the ingredient list though. I think it’s great for people who are picky about the ingredients and have the means!

  • http://www.peggytimmermans.be/blog peggy timmermans

    It sounds for sure very interesting…I tried the l’Oreal CC cream in peach..i looked like a…peach! Not good :)

    • Sunny

      Oh uh… it’s probably not a good idea then! It also comes in green so I kind of wonder what will happen if I put that on my face LOL

  • http://aucupariabrumalis.wordpress.com Claire

    I had a skincare sample from this line (oh well, it’s very expensive, lol) and was impressed, not blown away though. This CC cream (the era of BB creams is over I guess, everyone is going crazy … CC cream) sounds interesting, I am still looking for a reason, why there is a CC cream everywhere now, haha. So you will be on your third bottle of Caudalie vinoperfect? :D this stuff is amazing, isn’t it?! I think for my dry skin this cc thing is a no-no but glad it worked for you ;)

    • Sunny

      Oh yes the third bottle of Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum is already sitting around waiting to be cracked open! It just works. I might switch to something else if I try a sample that I like, but it’s my security blanket! You should give their Copper Peel a try. That, my friend, is mind-blowing! I will try to do a detailed review soon!

      • http://aucupariabrumalis.wordpress.com Claire

        oh, that sounds wonderful! copper peel! Can’t wait for your review Sunny ;)

    When I thought BB cream would die down, in comes the CC cream. We were joking on Twitter if there will be a DD or an EE cream out in the near future. I’d kill myself. LOL! Either way, BB or CC creams or whatever you call it, as long as it works on my skin, I’m sold. So in the end, it doesn’t really matter what they’re called, does it? Glad this works on you! Do you guys get Rachel K CC Cream? I’m loving it. I think you can get 10 tubes of RachelK with the money you spend on one of this. HAHAHA!

    • Sunny

      Hey Lily, I know what you mean. I’ve always thought BB cream is a bit of a trend, but as long as it works for the skin! I haven’t tried Rachel K yet!

  • http://eyeheartit.blogspot.com Larie

    I love that they use only physical sunscreens, but man, they are pricey!

    • Sunny

      Yeah, sadly that’s one of the things that come with Omorovicza products. I do think it makes a compelling case for those who are allergic to silicone though!

  • http://beautyreductionista.blogspot.ca/ Liz

    I don`t even know if this brand is available here. I only see it featured on the blogs and am becoming more and more curious! Sounds like a nice time-saver so that we don`t have to prime and block in two steps!

    • Sunny

      Hey Liz, I think Omorovicza ships to Canada but I don’t know if there is a counter there! It’s a great silicone-free primer. I am OK with makeup that contains silicone, but personally when I can do without I want to do without!

  • http://www.beauty-reflections.com Tracy@Beauty Reflections

    This brand sounds amazing! Just so expensive though! Kind of lucky it’s not available here like Liz said LOL. otherwise I’d be eating oatmeal for months haha!

    • Sunny

      Haha yeah I know what you mean. The problem is I’m now hooked on some stuff so I will no doubt be eating oatmeal for months!

  • Mike

    Hey,

    thank you for the review. Do you think I may use this creame as man or is it good only for women? Thank you

    • Sunny

      Hey Mike, I don’t think you’ll have any problems! It depends on how you want to use it though. If you want something you can wear alone, I’d suggest their BB cream. This is better under a base product. Hope this helps :)
