Omorovicza | Acid Fix AHA BHA Treatment: Review

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links and the products featured were provided for review.
Ever since I was introduced to alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) in the form of the amazing Pixi Glow Tonic, I've been incorporating the ingredient into my daily skincare routine. I've tried AHA cleansers, masks, toners, and creams but my favorite category has to be serums. I've tried the likes of the Sunday Riley Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment, the Drunk Elephant Glycolic Night Serum, and the Pixi Overnight Glow Serum, and while they have all been pretty awesome, I am always interested in trying something new. So when Omorovica sent over their Acid Fix AHA BHA Treatment ($165 CAD for 30 ml), I was beyond excited! Now that I'm almost halfway through the bottle, I am ready to share with you my thoughts on the formulation. To read my review, click......
Omorovicza | Acid Fix AHA BHA Treatment
Housed in a simple frosted glass bottle equipped with a convenient dropper dispenser, the Omorovicza Acid Fix is an exfoliating treatment designed to brighten and resurface the skin. Formulated with both AHA in the form of glycolic acid, lactic acid, and BHA in the form of salicylic acid, Acid Fix not only removes dead skin cells on the surface of the skin but also penetrates deep into the pores to combat blackheads. In addition, the treatment contains yeast extract, sodium hyaluronate, radish root ferment, and Australian caviar lime extract. With a viscous liquid texture, Acid Fix is essentially a serum that applies very smoothly. There is some mild stinging sensation with each application but I've not experienced any irritation or sensitivity. Whereas some AHAs may leave behind a slightly filmy or tacky finish, the alcohol-free formulation absorbs quickly and leaves behind no residue or texture.

Because I've been using AHAs regularly for a couple years now, the introduction of any new exfoliators isn't going to make a huge difference. So although the Omorovicza Acid Fix keeps my skin smooth and glowy, I can't say that its results are drastically different than that of other AHAs serums I've used in the past. However, what I can say is that Acid Fix's formulation is one of the best I've tried. Since I like to mix a lot of serums, oils, and creams, I can't stand products that cause pilling or patching. However, because Acid Fix is so lightweight, it is perfect for mixing or layering with other products in my skincare routine. Therefore, this is definitely a product that I would recommend to seasoned AHA users as the $165 price tag may be a bit steep for those that are trying out the ingredient for the first time.
