As I was nearing the end of my Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip cleanser I seriously contemplated repurchasing; the product is fantastic, the packaging drives me nuts. Before I dolled out the money for something that didn't live up to my expectations 100% I decided to splurge on an even more expensive cleanser with great reviews. I felt justified in my splurge once I received a $20 coupon in my inbox from Sephora and have celebrated getting a year older.
The cleanser with they serious sticker price is Omorovicza Cleansing Foam. Love the packaging; the wide upside down squeeze tube is right up my alley in convenience and practicality.
This is a Hungarian line with a patent protected mineral delivery system called Mineral Cosmetology™. This company promises firmer, suppler and younger looking skin as their products are more easily absorbed by the epidermis and dermis. Well before I invest in a moisturizer I needed to test drive a cleanser.
This beautiful pale seafoam green is aerated (has been whipped) and has a great light texture. It easily foams up to remove makeup and impurities. Claims not to strip skin of moisture, regulate sebum, and detoxify with copper.
Doesn't all that sound wonderful? I just couldn't wait to start slapping this on my face.
First while I was so excited about the packaging, it's not the right kind for the texture of this cleanser. I would prefer this in a little jar. I feel the fact that it is aerated works to the benefit of the company (more buck for less product). It also sticks to the sides of the bottle, and sometimes when I squeeze all I get is an air fart. Conclusion: the product is so light, that even sitting upside down gravity can't pull it down... that's a bit of a pet peeve of mine. I'm not impressed.
So it was one of those things I had to give a try. It's lovely while it lasts, but I draw the line at $30... ok maybe $40 for a cleanser... and save ridiculous splurges for birthday celebrations.
By the way, the inside of the box is super pretty... but that shouldn't be a reason for purchase :)
