Is gold the new wonder ingredient? | London Beauty Insider

I was recently asked by the London Beauty Insider if Gold really was one of the new Wonder Ingredients.

They wrote:

Gold is next on the agenda, and one that immediately results in an eye roll. Gold, really? But actually, if you look a little closer into its history, it’s an ingredient that has been used for centuries. Kim Davies, Global Spa Director at Omorvicza talks us through its benefits.

Is the use of gold in skincare a new thing?

“No, the healing powers of gold have been known to us for centuries. The Egyptians used gold for all manner of physical, mental and spiritual concerns, and the Romans used it to cure skin complaints such as lesions and sores. It is also believed that Cleopatra used it to enhance and add radiance to her complexion”.

What are its benefits?

“We use it to rejuvenate skin, reduce inflammation, inhibiting the breakdown of collagen and elastin and reduce wrinkles”.

Which types of products should we look for it within, and how is it best applied?

“It is best used in serums, day and night, as the ingredients are more easily absorbed this way. You can also use it in a moisturiser or mask for added radiance beneath a foundation”.

Cat reviews Omorovicza’s Gold Flash Firming Serum

I must admit that gold has never been an ingredient I would ordinarily look for in a beauty product. It seems perhaps a little gimmicky – like something a brand would bring out at Christmas to make a product seem more magical and luxurious? But, having tried Omorovicza’s Gold Flash Firming Serum, I would retract my words. I love it! Give me gold, gold and more gold!

Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm….

This is a blogger friend of mine who has written about one of my favourite products, the Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm.

Elegant Ageless Beauty

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty..

Omorovicza is a Hungarian beauty brand, the story begins 2000 years ago really when the healing properties of  Hungary’s thermal waters were first discovered. It wasn’t until the 1800’s though that the Omorovicza family built the Racz spa in the capital, Budapest which is on the sight of a medieval healing spring. Then 200 years later a descendant of the Omorovicza family decided to take his wife to the baths in Budapest where they discovered how much better their skin was, so they called upon a Nobel prize-winning laboratory to take these healing waters and turn it into skincare. OmoroviczaCosmetics was born. I’m sharing with you today the AWARD WINNING Thermal Cleansing Balm.


Firstly a disclaimer, I’ve  never used a cleansing balm before in my skincare routine so I have nothing to compare this lovely product too. What I can tell you is that it’s…

Mewslade and Fall Bay – Gower Swansea

This is so beautiful and the photography is amazing.

Fall bay at sunset

Want to park your car next to an easily accessible beach with lifeguards, ice-cream vans and souvenir shops? don’t go to Fall bay or Mewslade! Want to visit a hauntingly beautiful bay with rare wildlife and outdoor activities? Then this is for you.

Stormy Mewsllad

Getting to either bay is not easy, whether you drive or catch a bus a minimum of a 15 minute walk awaits you. If you drive follow the B4247 towards Rhossili, when you enter Piton take the left hand turning after Pitton Cross caravan Park and drive into the field which is marked up with parking spaces. Pop £3 in the honesty box and walk towards the barns where you turn right at the gate. Follow the path all the way until it brings you into a valley which leads to beautiful Mewslade beach,

Fall bay is to your right as you face the sea.

Moisturisers vs Oils

Understand the differences between oils and moisturisers

Personally I am always fascinated by the debate – oils or moisturisers. So was particularly interested in this blog by Omorovicza Cosmetics. My conclusion is use an oil at night time and a moisturiser during the day but this is just my personal choice. You have to have very dry skin to use an oil during the day, particularly if you are putting foundation over the top.

The Omorovicza new Miracle Facial Oil is an amazing product which I would certainly recommend. I have had the privilege of using this product over the last two months but it launches later this month online and in leading Department Stores – Liberty, Harrods, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Selfridges etc.

We’re always looking for ways to maintain healthier younger looking skin.

Skin cells are held together by an abundance of oils and as we age, the production of these oils decrease. Skin subsequently becomes dull and dehydrated. To maintain a healthy glow, it is essential to give these oils back, by restoring the lipid barrier to help retain the skin’s moisture. We’re often asked which products are better to moisturise your skin – cream or oils? The answer is quite simply both; creams and oils can be incorporated into anyone’s skincare routine. Oils protect the skin’s lipid barrier and ensures moisture doesn’t evaporate from your skin. A common misconception is that applying an oil to acne-prone/greasy skin will clog pores, cause breakouts or leave a greasy film. The truth however is that most natural oils are easily absorbed and noncomedogenic (they don’t clog pores). Creams on the other hand are designed to penetrate the epidermis, leaving skin softer and hydrated. They contain a number of beneficial ingredients which ensures skin is replenished and damaged skin cells are repaired. You can find Omorovicza Moisturisers here and the Miracle Facial Oil here. – See more at:
