Review

Results you may expect from using Omorovicza Gold Flash Firming Serum:

Based on the ingredient analysis by CreamScan, these are the key benefits you can expect from using Omorovicza Gold Flash Firming Serum:

  • A bit of moisturizing. It has a moisturizing rating of 1.8 out of 10.
  • Antioxidant protection.

How moisturizing is it?

Slightly moisturizing: Omorovicza Gold Flash Firming Serum has a moisturizing rating of 1.8 out of 10.

Is it more humectant or occlusive? Purely humectant. It has zero occlusivity (we didn't find any occlusive ingredients on the ingredient list) and a moderate humectancy of 3.6 out of 10, primarily due to the high content of Glycerin (est. ≈3.0%).

Please refer to the Ratings section below for details of the moisturizing rating calculation.

Anti-wrinkle efficacy

According to CreamScan analysis, Omorovicza Gold Flash Firming Serum has a zero anti-wrinkle rating.

It contains Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 and Caprooyl Tetrapeptide-3, two ingredients marketed as effective in reducing wrinkles. However, the studies supporting the anti-wrinkle claims of these ingredients provide insufficient evidence of efficacy according to CreamScan Research Evaluation Standards. Therefore, these ingredients do not generate the anti-wrinkle rating.

Please refer to the Ratings section below for details of the anti-wrinkle rating calculation.

Antioxidant benefits

We estimate that Omorovicza Gold Flash Firming Serum is rich (> 3%) in antioxidants, specifically Saccharomyces Extract (est. ≈4.0%).

A key benefit of antioxidants is their ability to reduce oxidative stress caused by free radicals and therefore prevent accelerated skin aging. Studies also show that antioxidants can protect against environmental damage such as UV radiation and pollution, and help reduce inflammation and skin redness.
