This ticks all of the important facial mist boxes and some: purifying, toning and hydrating, it smells incredible, feels fresh and does all of this without containing a drop of alcohol. Some facial mists – even the expensive ones – seem to be rather drying once the initial effects have worn off; the Omorovicza version keeps the skin nicely freshened. The scent is one of my favourites, Orange Blossom, and the base of the mist, the water, is Hungarian Thermal Water which is the inspiration for the entire Omorovicza range. The thermal baths in Hungary have mineral-rich waters that are supposed to have incredible effects on the skin – so much so that that there are mud baths that will only let you stay in for twenty minutes! I wonder what happens if you overstay? I can imagine me sat there, reading on my Kindle, hauling myself out after three hours and glowing like a radioactive superhero!
Back to the mist: this is another Omorovicza product that gets a big old tick-in-the-box from me. It’s not cheap – Omorovicza are firmly in the ‘luxury’ category – but this mist is surprisingly only £14 more expensive than Caudalie’s version. If it’s alcohol-free luxury you’re after, it’s well worth the extra! It’s perfect to take on holiday – both for in-flight care and on-beach reviving. It’s also brilliant if you like to ‘tone’ but don’t want to use a standard toner – this one is gentle and healing and great for sweeping away last traces of cleanser whilst prepping the skin for moisturiser and makeup.
UPDATE: from today until the 29th, Omorovicza are having a facial event at Harrods – the firming gold experience costs £110 for 75 minutes including extraction. I can’t think of anything more luxurious and lovely – especially as fellow model Zoe raved about hers so much last year. I wonder if they’ll give me a facial if I…er….offer to wash the dishes. Or something. Every facial customer will receive a gift worth £50 and another gift if they purchase any product from the Omorovicza range. Bookings can be made on this number: 020 7893 8333
