For a long time, I steered clear of cleansing balms. I thought they would be heavy and oppressive. All that changed after a chance encounter with a pushy sales associate at a favourite department store.
Ever since, I’ve been trying cleansing balms left, right and centre, and Omorovicza’s Thermal Cleansing Balm has become a favourite.
Ok. First things first. How do you pronounce Omorovicza? It’s simple. Say it with me: “O-Mor-O-Veet-Sa”.
This Thermal Cleansing Balm is thick, rich and dense. The consistency is quite nice and those with dry skin will love this. I won’t lie. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, you may want to opt for a lighter option. I would get a sample though and try it out on a small patch of skin and see how it goes. It is formulated for all skin types, but I did find it on the heavy side for my combination skin.
An award-winner, this anti-aging cleanser is quite gentle, leaving skin feeling very hydrated and moisturized. Made with Hungarian Moor Mud, this balm cleanses, detoxifies and is fantastic at removing the most stubborn of makeup (think rock solid waterproof mascara and the like).
My forehead has been giving me problems all winter with its dried-out and almost scaly texture (I do not know what is going on). This balm was really soothing, and definitely made a difference for the better.
Now, I really liked the Thermal Cleansing Balm, but the Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist was the scene stealer here! First of all, I’m a sucker for beautiful packaging. This is one of those products that’s too pretty to use…almost.
So, what’s behind the “Queen of Hungary” name? Well, this mist is formulated with neroli and rosewater, which was inspired by Queen of Hungary Water, which is supposedly the world’s first recorded perfume. This perfume was created for Queen Elisabeth of Hungary in the 14th century.
I love this mist. It is my all-time favourite mist…EVER. Why? Let me list the reasons:
- The spray bottle is more like an atomizer, which produces a fine, long, perfect spray which evenly covers your face. The simple act of spritzing is luxurious.
- It smells incredible. Delicate, feminine, fabulous. The neroli, rose and sage scents mix beautifully to produce a completely refreshing fragrance.
- This mist is the perfect way to add a dewy glow to your skin after you apply your makeup. Too much foundation? Spritz it. Too much pressed powder? Spritz it. Too much shiny highlighter? SPRITZ IT.
- This product reduces redness and irritation, so throw it in your beach bag to take the sting out of sunburns. A great tip for all of you smart people heading down south.
