Omorovicza Complexion Brightener & Thermal Cleansing Balm

Omorovicza is a Hungarian based skincare line I've talked about once before.   Based on using  a patented mineral  delivery system  and Hungarian thermal waters, this luxury line has recently added some great new products to the line.

In my earlier testing I loved the Rejuvenating Night Cream( I've been using this all late fall into winter ) and the Radiance Renewal Serum.

Now for daytime I've got Complexion Brightener.  This has SPF 20 and is perfect for normal to oily  skin, but especially oily skin. It goes on very light  and sets to a slightly matte but glowing look while adding some moisture. I was surprised yesterday when I had applied this and  some blush thinking I wasn't going out and then I needed to make a quick run  to Walgreens in the snow. I looked in the  mirror and my skin looked great.  Finished  and bright . Off I went looking almost like I had a light foundation on.

The company says it conceals imperfections  and leaves skin porcelain, and they're right .  In warmer weather this will be  even better.

Also new is Thermal Cleansing Balm.  Here's what Omorovicza founder Margaret de Heinrich says about it  - " Thermal Cleansing Balm this really is my favorite product in the line (though I love them all, of course!)...You apply a small amount to a dry face (rub the balm between your fingers first so that it turns into an oil)...massage over your eyes (removes eye makeup) and then all over your face for about one minute. Afterwards, use a warm wet terry cloth mitt or hand towel to wipe off excess (must use a cloth as just water will not remove product).

"The mud we use is medical grade mud and comes from largest thermal lake in Europe (2nd largest in the world)...the lake renews itself naturally every 24 hours. It also contains sweet almond oil dissolves oil, this product is amazing for targeting and breaking up impurities (makeup, dirt, etc) and is fantastic for all skin types. Smells of orange blossom which is a scent created personally for us by same perfume house in Grasse that does all Hermes perfumes. Product detoxifies, removes impurities. "

 Personally  I liked how  this  worked but I simply can't get on board with  cleansing oils on my face, I have enough of my own. I know they say oil cleans oil, but I've tried other high end cleansing oils and have felt the same way.  It's a great cleanser for the right skin though, normal to dry in my opinion.  And it does have a lovely scent, which you wouldn't expect from a  mud based cleanser.  Also a little is all you need.  A small amount goes a long way.
