Omnia Natura Anti-Ageing Immortelle Elixir

3/15/2016



I was so happy when I realized that my initiative to feature more organic, natural local skincare brands from Bosnia and Herzegovina left a really positive impression on you, my readers. Even a foreign reader found it useful and told me she planned what to purchase based on my posts during her visit to Sarajevo in March. I really hope the rest of you also found Maza (here) and Theca (here) reviews useful. But that wasn't the end - I have two more organic skincare brands to feature! Today I'm reviewing Omnia Natura Anti-Ageing Immortelle Elixir (10ml | approx $9) - the brand's most sought-after and bestselling product. You can contact the brand via their Facebook page (here).

I've had a brush with immortelle a while back as an ingredient via L'Occitane's Immortelle range and even then I found the results pretty amazing. What's rather specific about immortelle and what divides most opinions is the scent - very herbal, not to everyone's liking. This time, Omnia Natura's immortelle has a different 'aroma' to it, more nutty which I attribute to the fact their Anti-Ageing Immortelle Elixir contains 100% pure immortelle essential oil, immortelle flower concentrate and grapeseed oil (I think that grapeseed oil gives this elixir it's nutty vibe). Personally, I find the scent pleasant (albeit intensive) for the most time but I am sensitive to it during my PMS days when I skip using it and than resume it as soon as my hormones go back to normal.

I must mention that the presentation of the product is supreme for an organic item - you  get that rustic retro vibe with the cardboard cylinder box and the color scheme. I truly appreciate that the brand leaves their users to decide which type of application they prefer - the pipette (my fave!) or plain dropper and cap (both included in the packaging).

  • Jako me obradovalo primjetiti da se vama, mojim citateljicama, mnogo dopala inicijativa da cesce pisem o organskim, prirodnim preparativnim brendovima koje mozemo pronaci u BiH. Cak mi je i citateljica iz inozemstva porucila da su joj moje recenzije posluzile kao svojevrstan vodic za kupovinu tokom posjete Sarajevu u mjesecu martu. Nadam se da su i ostalima posluzile recenzije  Maza (ovdje) i Theca (ovdje) proizvoda. No, tu nije kraj - pripremila sam novitete jos dva prirodna BiH brenda. Danas pisem o Omnia Natura Eliksiru za podmladjivanje od smilja (10ml | 15KM-17KM ovisno o prodajnom mjestu) - najprodavanijem proizvodu ovog brenda. Brend mozete kontaktirati preko njihove Facebook stranice (ovdje).
  • U proslosti sam imala kontakt sa smiljem kao sastojkom kroz L'Occitane liniju preparative sa smiljem i cak tada sam primjetila pozitivne rezultate. Ono sto je specificno kod preparative sa smiljem je miris, koji nije po svacijem ukusu (izuzetno je biljan). Ovog puta, proizvod Omnia Natura brenda ima nesto drugaciju 'aromu' smilja, sa izrazenom orasastom notom koju pripisujem cinjenici da je ovo koncentrat ulja smilja i cvjetova smilja u ulju kospica grozdja. Vjerujem da ulje kospica grozdja eliksiru daje orasasti smek. Licno mi se miris dopada vecinu vremena (iako je intenzivan) ali sam na njega osjetljiva tokom PMSa. U tom periodu pauziram sa koristenjem i eliksiru se vracam po normalizaciji hormonalnog balansa.
  • Moram spomenuti da je prezentacija proizvoda vrhunska, pogotovo za jedan prirodni brend - daje mu rusticni retro epitet zbog kartonske cilindricne kutije i odabira boja. Jako cijenim cinjenicu sto brend korisnicama daje mogucnost odabira aplikacije eliksira. Biramo izmedju pipete (moj favorit!) i obicnog 'grla' sa poklopcem (pipeta i cep dolaze u pakovanju).



I was wondering why do you get only 10ml of product so I asked this question to the brand representatives - they said that most pure essential oils (e.g.lavender essential oil) come in 5-10ml bottles whilst immortelle, being an expensive ingredient, in most cases will be available in bottles of only 5ml. Elixirs, on the other hand, are featured in 20ml packagings if the concentrate is indeed pure - which is the case with Omnia Natura. They've settled on the 10ml bottle as it was the most optimal  option since a bigger amount would be followed by a higher price tag - something that this brand estimated wouldn't be realistic for a Bosnian market.

What does this elixir do? It's geared towards fighting fatigue, aging, dryness and it aims to minimize the appearance of wrinkles & fine lines whilst maximizing the skin's elasticity and tonus. That's a pretty bold set of claims and I'm not sure if the results I've experienced would be as intense or obvious on mature skin with heavy wrinkles - on my almost thirty year old skin, it has pretty much erased dehydration lines. If my skincare isn't adequate, horizontal wrinkles over my forehead look very pronounced and my eye area looks very baggy and dry. I think this elixir has addressed both issues tremendously!

I use it exclusively as a night treatment (on dry or moist, freshly cleansed skin) but it's advised to be used twice a day. Even using it once a day for a little over a month provided me with impressive results. My skin looks very plump, smooth, healthy and makeup looks even better now than it has a few months ago. My fine lines are softer, much softer and even the camera barely picks them up. I note that my jawline is susceptible to light sagging and this elixir helped to firm it up a bit - obviously nothing comparable to aesthetic surgery but still noticeable. I have decided to put up with the smell as the benefits are worth it for me. As I'm starting to experience first signs of ageing, it's now more than ever that I'm passionately advocating prevention to be the best way to keep that youthful appearance of our skin.

  • Zanimalo me zbog cega se za navedenu cijenu dobije samo 10ml proizvoda - ovo pitanje sam postavila predstavnicima brenda i njihov odgovor vam prenosim u potpunosti. 'Inicijalno etericna ulja (cista) dolaze u bocicama od 5-10 ml. Lavanda uglavnom dolazi u vise ml jer je jeftina dok smilje je jako skupo i dolazi u bocicama od 5ml maksimalno. Ali to je etericno ulje. Sa druge strane, eliksiri dolaze u maksimalno 20ml bocicama ako je cisti koncentrat kao sto je kod nas slucaj. Zato samo 10ml. Cijena eliksira je od 15-17 KM sto je jako malo i mi realno ne pokrijemo troskove proizvodnje i ambalaze ali da smo skuplji to bi tesko prodali u BiH.' 
  • Kakvo je djelovanje eliskira? Namijenjen je ciljanom uklanjanju vidljivih znakova starenja, poboljsava elasticnost koze i tonus, smanjuje vidljivost bora i pomaze u sprijecavanju buducih znakova starenja. Priznati cete da su ovo dosta hrabre tvrdnje i zaista ne znam da li bi rezultati koje sam ja iskusila bili jednako intenzivni i upecatljivi na zreloj kozi sa izrazenim borama. Na mojoj kozi, koja ce uskoro imati trideset godina, ovaj eliksir je gotovo u potpunosti izbrisao fine linije koje nastaju uslijed dehidratacije. Ukoliko ne koristim adekvatnu njegu, horizontalne bore na celu postaju izuzetno primjetne a koza okoloocnog podrucja postaje suha i opustena. Mislim da je ovaj eliksir jako lijepo pomogao kod ova dva problema!
  • Koristim ga iskljucivo kao nocni tretman (na suhoj ili vlaznoj i tek ociscenoj kozi) no preporucuje se koristenje dva puta dveno. Cak i jedno koristenje po danu nesto duze od mjesec mi je dalo impresivne rezultate. Koza lica mi izgleda dosta punacko, zagladjeno, mekse i zdravije a sminka se ljepse nanosi danas nego prije par mjeseci. Fine linije na mom licu su znatno omeksane i cak ih fotoaparat tesko uhvati na fotografijama. Primjetila sam da mi je koza vilice podlozna opustanju i eliksir je malo ucvrstio. Nije rijec o pomaku koji se moze mjeriti sa efektom estetske hirurgije (ocigledno) ali - ipak se razlika vidi. Odlucila sam da cu napraviti kompromis glede mirisa jer mi je ovaj proizvod pomogao. Kako pocinjem primjecivati prve prave znakove starenja koze, sada sam vise nego ikada strastveni zagovornik prevencije kao najboljeg nacina odrzavanja mladolikog izgleda koze.
