After we graduated, my best friend moved to Budapest to teach English… I’d pop over to visit her when I could get a cheap flight and we’d while away the hours in the amazing thermal baths, where locals of all ages would gather to socialise. Little did I know that one day I’d try a luxury skincare range originating from the walls of the beautiful city I fell for back then, based on the healing properties of its thermal waters.
Omorovicza is one of many skincare brands I’ve discovered through blogging and has been on my wish list for a while, so it was amazing to have the opportunity to try it recently. When I heard that you can save 30% on the (rather hefty) price tag for a few days, I figured this was a good time to share my thoughts.
Queen of Hungary Mist is one of the most hyped products from the range and when I heard people rave about it, the cynic in me would roll my eyes at the idea that it could be any better than any other facial mist. I’m always happy to be proved wrong (even if it will end up costing me a fortune) and hands up - this is a really beautiful product, which I’ve reached for multiple times daily this month.
It tones with orange blossom, rose & sage waters, hydrates with apple pectin and contains multiple minerals in a base of Hungarian Thermal Water. The ultra fine mist smells incredible, feels refreshing and hydrating and works well on its own or over makeup.
I spritz first thing in the morning - literally the minute I get up, post cleansing and as I work at my desk. To be fair, I’ve introduced a few other products recently which I’ll share soon, but I do think this boosts my dehydrated skin, which hasn’t suffered the usual dryness that kicks in at this time of year. And it’s really such a treat to use.
Radiance is a big selling point for me when it comes to skin care, so Illuminating Moisturiser was next on my must try list. Aimed at normal to dry skin, apple pectin and plum almond oil hydrate, while ruby crystal blurs the appearance of fine lines. A little lighter in texture than I expected, I pair this with a serum and need a richer moisturiser at night, but find that it makes a great base for makeup and the pump bottle is so quick and easy to use (I need all the help I can get in the morning rush).
If you just fancy trying *something* from Omorovicza and aren’t sure what to treat yourself to, I’d definitely go for the Queen of Hungary Mist. It’s beautiful, hydrating and a pleasure to use.
For anyone concerned about lines and dehydration around your eyes - and of a certain age (I’d let you decide what that is, but I’d say 35+) - then my best discovery is Gold Eye Lift.
I try a lot of eye creams and few make a notable difference, but this one definitely has done. I took a second look in the mirror when I noticed - and am not saying the lines around my eyes have disappeared, but they absolutely look better. Better as in less noticeable, slightly softened and well hydrated. This is a rich cream and a teeny dot goes a long way.
It treats dark circles with vitamin K, resurfaces with vitamin A (retinol), reduces puffiness with arnica and offers a string of other benefits. Darkness, lines and puffiness = my main boxes ticked and I’m absolutely loving this. Unfortunately it’s also one of Omorovicza’s priciest products, though the 30% discount makes it slightly more palatable. I’m saving for my next pot already.
