Omorovicza Reviews: Queen of Hungary Mist, Deep Cleansing Mask and Oxygen Booster

Omorovicza was one of the first brands I reviewed on this blog, and I’m so pleased to revisit it after all these months. Created by an American diplomat and her husband, a descendent of the noble Omorovicza family, the line is powered by a potent blend of Hungary’s mineral-rich healing waters and their patented Hydro Mineral Transference™ delivery system. Omorovicza uses a combination of natural extracts and safe synthetics to create some of the most luxurious products available. All their products are free from parabens, polyethylene glycol, petrochemicals, silicones, sulfates, synthetic colours, synthetic fragrances, microbeads and nanoparticles. The very sophisticated fragrances for their products are crafted using natural ingredients in Grasse, the perfume capital of the world.

I’ve been using the following products for over two months, and here are my impressions:

Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist:

Inspired by the fabled Queen of Hungary Water, the world’s first recorded perfume, this mist contains orange blossom, rose and sage waters to rejuvenate tired skin. I like to use it just after I cleanse, before a serum or an oil, or as a final setting spray after I’ve finished my skincare routine.

There are two things I love about the Queen of Hungary Mist (and differentiate it from hundreds of other mists on the market). The first thing is its unique fragrance. I was expecting it to have a pretty rose-neroli scent, but it has a refreshing herbal, wintergreen-like quality to it, thanks to the addition of the sage water. I find this very refreshing, especially in summer. The second thing I love about it is its ultra-fine delivery system. The sturdy pump delivers the finest whisper of a mist, making sure it doesn’t overload or drench the skin. It delivers the perfect amount of hydration to the skin every single time. I find that this also means that you end up using less product compared to other mists, making the bottle last longer.

Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask:

This is my favourite Omorovicza product so far! A brightening and detoxifying mask, this contains white clay and Hungarian moor mud to deep cleanse clogged pores. I love using this whenever my skin feels congested and acne-prone. Compared to many other clay masks, it is easy to apply and rinse off. It doesn’t leave much of a mess in the sink, either.

I feel a slight tingling sensation when I apply the Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask, but it disappears after a minute or two. I leave it on for 10-20 minutes before washing it off and following with the Queen of Hungary Mist. This is one of those products that helps stop acne in its tracks by decongesting the skin and getting all the gunk from your pores out. Despite being a deep cleansing clay mask, it doesn’t dry my skin or make it feel taut and uncomfortable. It’s definitely one of the best clay masks I’ve ever used, and I’d love to see how it compares to their jet-black Ultramoor Mud Mask (I always find black products attractive, not sure why!). I’ll definitely purchase/repurchase this when I run out.

Omorovicza Oxygen Booster:

This is a really unique product, and I don’t think there is anything like it on the market. It is a liquid oxygen hydrator to smooth, firm and plump tired, dull skin. Designed to mimic oxygen-infused spa treatments and facials, you’re meant to add a couple of pumps of this to your daily moisturiser or serum to deliver oxygen molecules into the skin. It has a minty smell that feels refreshing. What I find amazing about this product is the way it reduces the viscosity of moisturisers, serums and balms, when you add a drop or two of this to it. I feel like it helps deliver the ingredients of my serums and moisturisers deeper into the skin.

Do you need an ancillary product like this in your routine? I think it will depend on your skin type and lifestyle. If you live in a pristine, unpolluted environment and lead a very healthy lifestyle, or if you already have glowing skin, you do not need this. However, if you spend most of your time in planes, air conditioned offices or crowded urban spaces, this will give you that extra boost to take your skincare to the next level.

Final Thoughts:

Great products overall, worth the splurge. The packaging is super luxurious, and they make excellent gifts!

Note: These press samples were sent to me by the brand. I do sometimes get offered press samples for review, however, this does not have any bearing on the unbiased nature of my reviews. All products are subject to the same level of scrutiny.
