Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm


Omorovicza has always been an uber-luxe Hungarian spa brand in my mind. Products infused with Hungary’s mineral-rich healing water and naturally sourced ingredients, all packaged in heavy glass packaging accompanied by a hefty price tag. Living on a student loan doesn't exactly allow me to indulge in such luxury products, but having generous parents does. After gushing about Omorovicza's Thermal Cleansing Balm to my mum, the deed was done and I received this lil' pot of goodness for Christmas.



Coming back to what's so special about the water in Hungary, due to the earth's crust being thinner there, the water gathers more beneficial minerals than elsewhere. This, combined with an unusually high number of natural springs, made Budapest in the renowned 'Spa City'. Aside from Hungarian Thermal Water, it also contains gorgeous oils such as Sweet Almond, Jojoba and Squalene, which cleanses without stripping the skin from its natural oils and Hungarian Moor Mud removes impurities. Moreover, it is infused with soothing, repairing and neutralising ingredients such as Copper, Magnesium, Zinc, Calcium, Selenium and Manganese.

This is such a luxurious product that I'm using it very sparingly. You can use this to remove your make up, but because of the price I only use it as a second cleanse so my skin can actually absorb the goodness. Generally, I love to use this on a day when my skin is looking exceptionally dull or needs some TLC. I scoop a bit out with my finger or the spatula when I'm feeling particularly fancy and massage it all over my face, making it melt into an oil. When I've got some time, I tend to do a facial massage with this and I really notice a big difference when doing so continuously. You can choose to rinse it off with warm water, but because of all the oils, it may leave a film, so using a warm cloth to remove the product is recommended. I wouldn't say this is a must-have product, but definitely one worth investing in when you've got the spare pennies. Or if you feel like treating yourself to a proper pamper product. You know, like an investment for the mind and body. No?

  7. Definitely a treat product. LookFantastic usually have great promo codes all year around so that could save you 10-20% from the original price.

  8. If it's the price that's holding you back, I'd recommend keeping an eye out for LookFantastic's promo codes. It could save you about 10-20%.

  9. I know, she's the best! I've heard so many great things about the mist, but I'm not sure if it's worth the price tag. If you're really interested in getting something from Omorovicza, I'd recommend ordering through LookFantastic. They have free worldwide shipping and frequently have discount codes, which will save you about 10-20%.

  10. Yes, I agree! It gives the best grip for a (quick) facial massage and I really think my skin may have improved a bit due to this.

  11. I am definitely trying this out next autumn/winter (summer is NOT the time for balm cleansers here!) For now I am using the Oskia cleanser and that is everything!

  12. The Oskia Cleanser is amazing though!

  13. You're discovering me a lot of brands I didn't know before, WengYee! I don't know under what kind of rock I live, lol.


    This sounds so, so good! Might have to add it to my already overcrowded list of things I would like to try... sigh, the curse of a beauty blogger.

  14. This sounds like such a gorgeous product but it's so pricey. Just so pricey! I honestly don't think I could bring myself to use something so expensive but it seems like such a dream to use. It's tempting. xx
