Soft and Sweet: Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm

Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing BalmTime to have a look at an iconic skincare product: Omorovicza’s Thermal Cleansing Balm. I am going to warn you before you start reading: I love it…but it is a little expensive. Continue reading at your own peril.

This cleansing balm by Hungarian brand Omorovicza is based around their signature ingredient: Hungarian Moor Mud. The minerals and added sweet almond oil help keep your skin clear and hydrated. It smells of sweet orange blossom without being overwhelming.

The balm has a distinct black tint in the glass jar and a very smooth texture. I love how easy this is to distribute across the skin: no drag or grains at all. This softness makes it great to use for a quick facial massage. It removes make-up with ease and leaves your skin feeling soft.

Now for the bad news: a full sized jar of this retails for $110 / £48 / €65 and contains 50 ml. This is definitely luxury skincare and it is well worth the price in my opinion, but I am well aware not everyone has the budget to spend this amount on a cleanser. I certainly don’t, but I was lucky enough to receive this luxury sample for free with an online purchase and I have loved every second of using it.


Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm

Tijd om te kijken naar een iconische huidverzorgingsproduct: Omorovicza’s Thermal Cleansing Balm. Ik waarschuw je wel alvast voor je begint met lezen: ik ben er dol op…maar het is wel duur. Verder lezen is op eigen risico.

Deze reinigingsbalsem van het Hongaarse merk Omorovicza is gebaseerd op hun karakteristieke ingredient: Hongaarse Moor Modder. De mineralen en toegevoegde amandelolie helpen om je huid helder en gehydrateerd te houden. Het ruikt naar zoete oranjebloesem zonder overweldigend te zijn.

De balsem heeft een opvallende zwarte kleur in het glazen potje en een hele soepele textuur. Het is heel makkelijk over je gezicht te verdelen: soepel en zonder korrels. Deze zachtheid maken het heel fijn om een snelle gezichtsmassage mee te zoen. Het verwijdert make-up heel makkelijk en laat je huid zacht achter.

Nu het slechte nieuws: een grote pot van 50 ml kost je €65. Het is echt luxe huidverzorging en meer dan de prijs waard, maar ik begrijp heel goed dat niet iedereen dit kan uitgeven aan een reiniger. Ik ook niet, dus ik had geluk dat ik deze luxe tester gratis bij een online bestelling kreeg en ik heb genoten van elke seconde van gebruik.

    The way I see the pricing is like Sunday Tiley skincare and eventually I’ll be sucked in. I do think these skincare are promising. But for now, baby steps! I’ll have to look back at this post for your recommendations! Thanks Anne! 🙂 x

      Absolutely right, very similar in price to Sunday Riley which I have coveted from afar for a long time as well. I personally think you should always try to get samples or trial kits from these expensive brands first to ensure it is worth it. For me, omorovicza is amazing!

    This is one of my favourite cleansers – I love how gentle it is. It is one of my favourite skincare brands! Lookfantastic regularly have 20% discount codes available & they can be used on Omorovicza xx

      It is just so gentle and soft, but it still works well. Sometimes gentle equates to useless at removing make-up.
      Very true, look fantastic do some great deals with O! xx Anne

      Oh yes, this was such a great score. Still can’t believe it was a GWP and I will certainly keep my eyes peeled for similar bargains. xx

    I’ve been dreaming about this brand ever since you first mentioned it, and I finally scored a sample of this balm!! I can’t wait to try it (but I’m also a little afraid it will be amazing and I’ll have to buy the full size). The perils of being a beauty blogger…

      Oh how nice! I am sure you’ll love it…which is a problem. I couldn’t believe how bad the conversion rate was between our european prices and the USD though. Does look fantastic ship to you? they have some great bargains every now and then. xx

          Oh they are great! If you enroll for their newsletter they will send you amazing discounts and GWP. I love them, because you can usually combine the two and get a discount and free gift (doesn’t happen a lot here in EU).

    Gotta admit, Hungarian Moor Mud doesn’t sound too enticing, LOL! 😀 Glad you loved it, but sorry it’s so pricy!

      I know! The color was a bit weird at first as well, but it just works so wonderfully well I forgave it.

      Oh I know 😦 The conversion rate is a little crazy as well I have to say: the usd and euro prices are miles apart but it still doesn’t make it cheap.

    Het is inderdaad prijzig maar voor goede gezichts- verzorging heb ik dat wel over. Fijne review wel even wennen denk ik omdat het anders is dan andere reinigings- producten voor de huid.

      Oh dit is het zeker waard! Ik hou zelf wel van reinigingsbalsems, maar het is inderdaad wel een heel ander gevoel dan een creme.
