Ordolava Review: Do Green Tea Masks Work?

Ordolava Review: Do Green Tea Masks Work?

Read our Editorial Guidelines to learn more about what makes our site the premier resource for online health information.

Ordolava is a cosmetics brand that sells a green tea facial cleansing mask on Amazon. The brand claims their product is a blackhead remover and moisturizer. 

But does Ordolava’s cream contain research-backed ingredients for moisturizing and acne removal or are these just marketing claims? Does it contain any unhealthy additive ingredients? Does green tea even have cosmetic benefits? And how do real users rate and describe the effects of Ordolava’s green tea cleanser stick?

In this article we’ll answer all of these questions and more as we analyze the ingredients in Ordolava’s cream based on medical studies to give our take on whether or not it’s likely to be effective.

We’ll also share our concerns about the brand and feature real, unsponsored Ordolava user reviews.

Ingredient Analysis

Ordolava ingredients

The Amazon listing for Ordolava’s green mask stick shows three active ingredients: green tea, volcanic mud and vitamin E.

Green tea has a number of research-backed cosmetic benefits. It was shown in a clinical trial published in the Dermatologic Therapy journal to reduce skin roughness and have “pronounced moisturizing effects.”

Volcanic mud contains volcanic ash residue and may be rich in nutrients. A 2020 medical review found that this compound may be effective in the management of skin diseases, but we can’t find any evidence that it reduces acne or increases skin hydration.

Vitamin E can help protect skin from damage when applied topically. As we documented in our CeraVe Moisturizing Cream review article, clinical studies have shown that vitamin E helps protect skin from the damaging and aging effects of UV rays.

We consider Odrolava’s serum potentially effective for increasing skin hydration and protecting the skin from damage. We found less research backing for the brand’s claims about acne reduction.

Our concern is the lack of full ingredient disclosure. As shown in the image above, these three active ingredients are highlighted in the brand’s marketing, but it’s unclear if there are additional ingredients like fillers, preservatives and fragrance.

Most high-quality brands publish a full ingredient list and we cannot recommend any cosmetic product without one. But we have some further concerns about the Odrolava brand that we’ll discuss in the next section.

Our Concerns About Ordolava

Our main concern about Ordolava as a brand is that there doesn’t appear to be one clear manufacturer, product listing or website. 

There are a number of different green tea cosmetic products on Amazon sold under the “Ordolava” brand as shown below:

As we discussed in our review of the TikTok-famous Green Mask Stick, the risk of counterfeit and misbranded products may be higher when there’s not a clear manufacturer or company backing a product.

The product that’s the subject of this review is titled on Amazon “Ordolava Green Tea Deep Cleanse Mask,” but there are similar products with names like “NKICAW Ordolava Green Tea Deep Cleanse Mask” and ZOEBER Ordolava Green Tea Deep Cleanse Mask.”

We generally recommend that consumers stick to products with a clear manufacturer and owner.

Real, Unsponsored Ordolava User Reviews

A YouTube channel called “Natalie and Tara” reviewed the Ordolava product in this article including a live product demonstration with their thoughts on whether or not it works:

A TikTok video from a channel called “kuyoi_store” has a video with some real users of Ordolava’s product, although the video is more promotional in nature:

Is Ordolava a Scam?

Given the concerns about the manufacturer and sourcing, many consumers are curious about whether or not Ordolava is a scam.

To our knowledge, and based on the Amazon product reviews, the brands selling Ordolava products appear to be shipping the products that are listed. We haven’t found any evidence that brands are failing to ship products or misrepresenting their products on Amazon.

A “scam” is when a company intentionally misrepresents their product or offering, or collects customer money without sending any product.

So we don’t consider Ordolava to be a scam. It may not be effective, but it does appear to be a legitimate product that’s sold as described.

Part of the confusion around Ordolava being a scam comes from YouTube channels with the word “SCAM” in the title or thumbnail, but with no explanation in the video on how this brand is a scam. We recommend avoiding those YouTube creators.

Our Clean Skincare Picks

There are skincare products that contain ingredients shown in clinical trials to be effective for reducing wrinkles and improving skin quality generally.

Annie Mak Vitamin C Serum is our top skin cream pick because of its effective and clean formulation. It contains hyaluronic acid which was described as a "skin-rejuvenating biomedicine" in a medical review due to its ability to reduce wrinkles and signs of facial aging.

Interested consumers can check out Annie Mak Vitamin C Serum at this link to the product page on the official brand's website.

Hydraglow is our top moisturizer pick. It features bakuchiol as an active ingredient which was described in a 2014 clinical trial as "clinically proven to have anti-aging effects."

Interested consumers can purchase Hydraglow at the secure checkout below:

The only oral supplement we recommend for skin quality improvement is Bulletproof Collagen Powder.

Oral collagen supplementation was shown in a medical review published in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology to improve visible signs of skin aging as well as improve skin elasticity and skin hydration.

Interested consumers can check out Bulletproof Collagen Powder at this link to the product page on the brand's official website.

None of the products recommended in this section contain additive ingredients that we consider questionable from a health perspective.

Pros and Cons of Ordolava

Here are the pros and cons of Ordolava as a brand in our opinion:

Pros:

  • Effective active ingredients
  • Should have a moisturizing effect
  • May have an anti-acne effect
  • Affordable

Cons:

  • No full ingredient list published
  • Unclear manufacturer
  • Many companies selling product under Ordolava name
  • Not many real online customer reviews
Stay up-to-date on our research reviews

Conclusion

Ordolava is one of the more popular green mask stick brands. Green tea is actually a very well-studied skincare ingredient, and can reduce skin roughness and improve skin moisturization. 

The brand’s green stick product also contains two other active ingredients (volcanic mud and vitamin E) which have research-backed benefits for skin, so we consider the product to be potentially effective.

Our main concern about Ordolava is that the full ingredient list isn’t published, so we’re unclear on whether there are unhealthy filler ingredients like fragrance or preservatives. We’re also concerned about the lack of a clear manufacturer or owner of the brand, which may reduce legal recourse for consumers and increase the risk of fraudulent product.

Ordolava is quite affordable at under $10, but we believe there are better and safer options on the market for natural acne reduction and skin quality improvements.

That being said, we would not consider Ordolava to be a scam. The brand appears to be shipping real products to real customers, and there are customer reviews online confirming such. A scam is more than a bad product; it’s when the company either fails to ship product or deceives consumers in an intentional way.
