Skincare : Omorovicza

What to buy Omorovicza Omorovicza

Let me introduce you to Omorovicza, (a name that not many people can pronounce confidently) the luxurious Hungarian skin care brand that I’ve been very loyal to last 2 or so years. Nobel Prize winning laboratory & the art of mineral loveliness made me to blow my 2015 beauty budget on most of their products.

Glad to be of service today, in sharing much-loved from the brand and what didn’t work well for me.

Let’s begin with: Best Buys

Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm
Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm
  • Thermal Cleansing Balm – The best buy ever! Balm cleansing is somewhat a lengthy process where you take time in massaging & remove with a warm fennel cloth leaving for 10-15 minutes. Even though it takes a while to perform, the  post effect is just fabulous & there’s nothing like seeing your skin squeaky clean. Massaging activates the moor mud cells, gets deep into the skin & simply works wonders ensuring the skin is supple and at best condition. Seriously addictive stuff. One of my repeat repurchases (reviewed here).
Omorovicza Hydra Melting Cleanser
Omorovicza Hydra Melting Cleanser
  • Hydra Melting Cleanser – 3-in-1 Tiffany blue cleanser is for all lazy ‘cleansing-girls’. Once the gel applied to dry/makeup full face it turns into oil. Add water to emulsify when you’re ready to take-off the grime! Unlike other cleansers, this product really saves time & guarantees soft, super cleansed skin in less than 10 minutes! Not something I use on daily basis considering the GBP 58/- price tag. If your budget permits, then this is one-heck of a makeup remover and a second cleanse.
Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist
Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist
  • Queen of Hungary Mist – can be described as a luxury spritz toner & facial mist. Go-to product during my travels as it keeps the skin hydrated even when I’m not wearing moisturizer. To me this is the perfect in-flight mist, beach/pool refresher and a decent holiday toner. At home, I use after exfoliation to clam the skin but it doesn’t come cheap. If you are looking for a budget version – Mario Badescu’s facial spray with Aloe, Herbs & Rosewater is the closet. Back-up worthy product!
Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask
Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask
  • Deep Cleansing Mask – is the solution to white heads, excess oils, congested pores and all the nasties. Post cleansing (with Thermal Cleansing Balm), I leave it for 15-20 minutes and removes with a warm fennel cloth. It extracts impurities as soon as the thin layer covers the skin without over-drying or tightening. I’m amazed how it leaves the skin super clean and pores shriek its size dramatically & ready for masking after each use. Without a doubt a desert island product and a finest skin purifier. Best to use when your skin looks dull & stressed.
Omorovicza Refining Facial Polisher
Omorovicza Refining Facial Polisher
  • Refining Facial Polisher – another cult find! Emerald mask-polisher-buffer hybrid is my midweek exfoliation treat to remove dead skin & to brighten the texture. I’ve tried it as an ultra-fine buffing mask and a polisher. Though it’s not an excessively aggressive scrub, I prefer it as a mask for the gentle buffing effect. Post second cleanse, I apply a thin layer, leave for 10 mins & take off with a warm cloth. The effect, is fabulous & as you’d expect – skin is even toned, smooth and ready for the sleep-in mask. A tube will last a year or so.
Omorovicza Rejuvenating Night cream
Omorovicza Rejuvenating Night cream
  • Rejuvenating Night cream – is the only night cream, you ever going to need! This rich, creamy subtly scented weighty jar is my baby. Sinks into the skin effortlessly without a hint of greasiness. Come morning, skin is deeply hydrated. It’s packed with nourishing oils, vitamin A – that boosts production of collagen & anti-aging properties. Price is difficult to gobble but this lush cream is invested-worthy.
Omorovicza Miracle Facial Oil
Omorovicza Miracle Facial Oil
  • Miracle Facial Oil This, mother of all facial oils designed to feed and improve the quality of skin texture. Within a week use, I could see my skin topped off with an unknown radiance, velvety texture, noticeably smooth smile lines and not one patch of flakiness. I use this dry-oil as (1) a serum under Rejuvenating Night Cream on weekly basis & (2) on its own majorly at nights. It works either ways & 3 drops is all you need. I found that with increase use the effects keep getting better. More visible the results were I bid farewell to my ex-favorite Clarins Lotus Treatment oil. Comparatively, Omo is a marvelous skin nourishing oil, intense anti-aging treat and a huge complexion booster. And it isn’t oily, never made my skin greasy and the mimosa (almond like) aroma is heavenly. If you like oils with anti-aging benefits then go get it. And save some for winter!

On the fence products

Omorovicza Reviving eye cream
Omorovicza Reviving eye cream
  • Reviving eye cream – was my first eye cream purchase from the brand. Post  6 months of daily use, I could see my dehydration lines smoothed out but can’t say the same for my dark circles. More suitable for someone in early 20’s as a basic eye cream now that I think of it.
Omorovicza Perfecting Lip Balm
Omorovicza Perfecting Lip Balm
  • Perfecting Lip Balm – which I enjoyed using great deal last year but, it didn’t blow my mind. I now see it more as an OK-ish tingly lip conditioner & a nice base under matte lipsticks. Though it’s hydrating, not a HG status for severely dry, chapped & sore lips. Thick texture doesn’t last long & reapplication is a must.
Omorovicza Nourishing Hand Treatment
Omorovicza Nourishing Hand Treatment
  • Nourishing Hand Treatment – Liked it a lot till I found La Mer Hand the treatment. Balmy texture is on the drier side. Takes a while to massage-in but leaves hands really soft, nourished & locks the moisture immediately. But  never felt wow using it. I prefer something light, creamy in texture and a little scented for daily wear. Overall a good hand cream but not the best.

Not worthy products

  • Blue Diamond Eye cream – started using it 4-5 months back, particularly with high hopes. The silky texture is lovely, absorbs easily and deeply moisturizing.  Half a pump goes a very long way & I find it to be so much better than Reviving eye cream. Despite the fact, it pumps up the hydration levels, reduces puffiness and made my tired looking eyes a lot fresher; otherwise effects have not been noticeable. Besides it is one of the best eye creams I’ve tried, bitterly disappointed of $230/- priced pot!  I expected more!!
Omorovicza Radiance Renewal Serum
Omorovicza Radiance Renewal Serum
  • Radiance Renewal Serum – is a product that promises oomph skin. Even when I’m about to finish the bottle (using underneath the night moisturizer) – I see nothing but my good old skin. The glow, radiance & brightness it claimed nowhere to be seen. If I could a put a list of unimpressed products this would be on top.
Omorovicza Gold night drops
Omorovicza Gold night drops
  • Gold Eye Lift & Gold night drops – not even close to as good! I expected both to be fabulous based on the reviews, but haven’t seen any results so far that too nearly for a year. I never understood what Gold Night Drops did to my skin & what the ‘gold’ term stands for. Not bothered anymore.

 

In summary, leave the eye creams aside. Focus on masks, cleansers, facial oil & the polisher. They are worth every penny, offering real skin benefits and guaranteed results.  All the products purchased via Omorovicza website.
