Omovoricza Complexion Corrector ($155/ 1 oz.) (also available from Omovorica’s website) is a premium multi-tasking product made for day. I’ve been testing this product for a few weeks getting my mind wrapped around all of the thing that it can do. Which is considerable, because it is one of the products that you don’t realize that you wanted, because you didn’t think it could exist. And yet, here it is.
One of the unique properties of Omovoricza’s Complexion Corrector is that it hydrates and gives a matte /satin finish at the same time. You begin to realize the full import of that after you reach your late 20’s, and realize that all skin– even oily skin — needs hydration to look its best. Omovoricza’s Complexion Corrector can be used as alone, or as a primer, to hydrate and plump up my skin cells, so I get the “I spent all day in a spa” effect even after its removed for the day. However, unlike many hydrating primers (or worthwhile moisturizers), Omovoricza’s hydration does not get greasy or heavy. It remains as steady as a porcelain surface on the skin, very lightly so you do not notice it is there. Except for the fact that your skin looks glowing, hydrated, and healthy.
That’s a pretty neat trick-usually hydrating products make my skin “glowy” far too early in the day and do not have this stability. In addition, there is something really healing about Omorovicza’s line. After one 14-hour day that including a drive that took us from 100+ degree heat to 50 degree fog (and back), including a long family gathering in between, my Dolce & Gabanna foundation looked untouched after all of that time using this as my primer base. Further, the Complexion Corrector helped my stressed out skin look brighter and pinker after it was removed.
The product is said to have brightening properties as well. I did notice that the product softened and diffused imperfections, including slight discoloration because of the pigment in the product itself. According to the line, the product includes Vitamin C and watercress leaf extract which “brightens the complexion and corrects skin tone to diminish the appearance of imperfections.” I will say that my skin did look more even-toned after several days of use.
This comes in a luxe frosted glass bottle with a plastic pump:
Another significant benefit is that the product has a softening effect on my slight imperfections of my skin, and even very slightly blurs uneven color on the skin. I think diffusing imperfections is an accurate way to describe the effect. It comes out of the bottle white, but blends quickly into a sheer matte-satin finish (click to enlarge):
I blended some product out from the left side of the image all the way to the right on my arm. As the product goes to almost invisible, the effect is a little difficult to see (click the image below to enlarge):

For outdoor wear, I layered this over my sunscreen. The product still gave me a beautiful porcelain finish and didn’t feel heavy. During my in-office days, I wore the Omorovicza Complexion Corrector alone.
Overall: I loved it. It stabilized my makeup during the day, gave me a beautiful finish without the “silicone” feeling that some primers have, gave my skin moisture without feeling heavy or glowy, minimized imperfections, and gave my skin hydration throughout the day. For those who live busy lives, having all of those features in a single product is a huge time-saver, saving me many steps in my morning beauty routine.
