Omorovicza Gold Sugar Scrub review
I was sent the Gold Sugar Body Scrub to try. This is a cane sugar scrub with a gold polypeptide suspension in it, and is £57 for 200ml. It is currently a gift with purchase on orders over £100 on the www.omorovicza.com website (I've played with a basket, and it is a full size product free).
Gold is a favourite ingredient in the very high end lines at the moment; the theory behind it is that gold is anti-inflammatory and helps to repair damage. Omorovicza also sells a Gold Rescue Cream for the face (also expensive at £107, but less insane than the £370 that Chantecaille charges for their Nano Gold Energising Cream).
The Gold Sugar Scrub comes packaged in a smart and sturdy box in the Omorovicza white and gold livery.
This is applied to damp skin and is not a foaming scrub - the sugar particles give a thorough but gentle exfoliation before melting into the skin. The texture of the scrub is perfect - the oil and sugar blend is neither dry nor overly oily, and leaves the skin feeling plump and smoothed but not greasy after rinsing.
Available from www.omorovicza.com, Fenwicks, Harrods, Liberty and Harvey Nichols (Edinburgh, London and Manchester).
