When I turned 30, I started getting REALLY serious about my skincare. I’ve never had any cosmetic surgery, but I’ve had injectables and surface treatments such as peels and dermapen. When I started this blog, I ceased getting injectables, and haven’t had any for almost two years. This is because I wanted to be able to fully evaluate what works, and what doesn’t.
Now that all injections have long ago worn off, I’ve found that some of the best products are those that help plump the skin, resulting in a reduced appearance of fine lines. I’ve been using Omorovicza products for years, even before the concept of blogging ever even crossed my mind. The brand’s Instant Plumping Cream is one of my favorite products!
Omorovicza Budapest uses the water from the thermal baths in Hungary as a base ingredient in its products. Through their patented Hydro Mineral Transference system, the minerals are able to penetrate the skin, resulting in a much improved appearance.
Omorovicza Instant Plumping Mask is an overnight mask that helps reduce the appearance and depth of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition to Hungarian thermal water, it contains micro-spheres filled with hyaluronic acid to provide instant hydration and help swell and plump the skin overnight.

Omorovicza recommends alternating the Instant Plumping Mask with the Rejuvenating Night Cream, another excellent, high-quality night time product. A really neat trick is to spray the brand’s Queen of Hungary Mist on right after the Plumping Mask, then massage them in together. This really amplifies the hydration and plumping- especially great for the night before a big event!
The Omorovicza Instant Plumping Mask is HEAVY, so unless you’re really dry, you probably won’t want to use this during the day. That being said, despite being heavy, I’ve experienced ZERO problems with it, even though I’m oily and hypersensitive. No irritation, no clogged pores, no acne, nothing. And again, it’s a sleeping mask, so the heaviness is to be expected. When I wash my face the next morning, all I can say is OMG my skin looks amazing!
Just a heads up, this does have quite a scent to it, which I absolutely adore, it’s a beautiful fragrance. If you’re sensitive to fragrance, it may be a bit “too much” at first, but it dissipates quickly. The only negative is the jar packaging. Not only is this a sanitary issue with repeatedly dipping one’s fingers into the jar, but there’s an effectiveness issue as well.
Exposure to light and air causes degradation of antioxidants, and renders them useless. Therefore, products with antioxidants should be packaged in such a manner as to avoid exposure to air and light (Kaur, Kapila & Agrawal, 2007). When you’re spending a good bit of money on a product, it’s nice if it remains effective for the duration, right?
Well, I’m going to tell you right now, that this mask is so amazing that the packaging is NOT a deal-breaker. The jar is gorgeous, and looks stunning on my vanity. All I do is remove small amounts at a time and place it into an opaque bottle. This way, I’m not constantly exposing the cream to air and light, and it keeps it sanitary, too. I should mention, though, that Omorovicza does include a cute little spatula to dip the product out, so that’s very helpful!
Overall, Omorovicza Instant Plumping Mask is an amazing product that feels luxurious, and it WORKS. At $260 for 1.7 oz., it’s pretty pricey. But, I’ll tell you right now, it’s so concentrated this will last for AGES. I had a sample size jar that lasted me almost two months. So, keep it tightly sealed, away from air, and you’ll be good to go. Plus, Omorovicza has a very generous rewards program- you earn Pengo points for each purchase, which can be used to purchase even more skincare luxuries!
