My skin was in a bad state post-LFW - too many coffees and sugary snacks fueling me in between the shows had led to break out round my jawline and a general dullness that I couldn't shift. Urban Retreat Beautique kindly sent me an Omorovicza Taupe gift set to review recently so I decided it was the perfect opportunity to trial the products. I have been using Lush skincare religiously for the past 5 years – my skin is quite sensitive – so I was nervous that the products might be too harsh. I hadn’t heard of the brand before but some reading up informed me that Omorovicza is a Hungarian skin care company which uses ‘Mineral CosmetologyTM’ - a patented mineral-based anti-aging system - that the beauty editors are raving about.
The set contains the following products:
· Deep Cleansing Mask 15ml
· Queen of Hungry Mist 30ml
· Cleansing Foam 30ml
· Illuminating Moisturiser 2ml sachets (2 per bag)
I used all the products daily over a course of 1 week to trial them thoroughly. I was relieved to find my sensitive skin loved the gentle and natural nature of the products – I even used the Queen of Hungary mist to remove traces of eye make-up and it didn’t sting as removers often can. The Cleansing Foam had a lovely creamy texture that lathered nicely and left my skin feeling clean but moisturized – no post-lathering skin tightness! My favourite product in the kit was the Deep Cleansing Mask – satisfyingly tingly, I could really feel it working to deep clean the London grime out my pores. I am still using the products in conjunction with my Lush skin care – nothing beats Lush ultra bland cleanser for removing make-up in my opinion, but the cleansing foam has become a morning staple for me. And the best part? My break out cleared up within two days of using the products - which never happens. The deep cleansing mask must have worked it's magic.
