Omorovicza was kind enough to send me a sampling of their most lauded products. Since I am using Differin at the moment (prescribed to me by my doc), I have a review so far of the products that I am able to use in tandem with the retinol. Once I get through my first three months (check back in May), I will make my way over to the Copper Peel, the Gold Eye Lift and the Gold Shimmer Oil.
I was really excited to try these products out–I have heard so much about them, especially the mask, and had high expectations.
The Thermal Cleansing Balm has a consistency similar to Clinique’s TTDO, but maybe a little bit thinner. It looks black in the pot, but spreads out to becoming quite translucent. It has a slight warming sensation as it is massage into the skin, and leaves the face feeling hydrated and soft. It removes all makeup, making cleansing a 1-step process.
I’ve heard pretty crazy things about the Deep Cleansing Mask: “don’t use it before a big event, it will bring pimples to the surface”, “your face will need a few days to recover”, and the like. This made me excited–bring all the pimples up now! I want them gone! And it definitely does really deep clean your face. I use it on the weekend so that my face has cleared up a bit before the work week.
It has a slight warming sensation for me, and really works to smooth the skin and the clay tightens up pores (closing pores is kind of a myth, but this mask really does something). I love to use it as the second mask when I’m giving myself my mini facial (exfoliating mask, clarifying mask, hydrating mask).
The Queen of Hungary Mist is a hydrating mist that can be used as a toner or throughout the day to refresh makeup and add moisture. The scent is lovely–orange blossom-y, but not overpowering. I do love this, but this is something I don’t think I could afford on a regular basis. If I was a fancy pants, I would definitely keep this around on my desk for a pick-me-up.
Omorovicza’s products are quite pricey, but if I was to buy one product (so far in the set), it would be the mask. If you’re not one to pony up the cash for facials on a regular basis, this product would be a good way to justify spending around $100 for facial-like effects.
