Oh, Omorovicza. The tear jerkingly expensive skincare my skin just loves. Oooph. I wrote a little ditty about an Omorovicza serum the other day, but this guy deserves a review all on it's own.
The *Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm, my friends. Yes, that one. The cleansing balm sweetheart that took the blogging world by storm a year or so ago. I'm a bit late to the party, but I don't even mind because this cleansing balm is amazing.
I know I've droned on and on about my sensitive, oily, acne prone skin. I genuinely didn't know if this balm cleanser would be too heavy for my skin and make me break out as a result. But nope! It's actually pretty perfect. I mean, I probably wouldn't use it in the heat of summer, but using this almost every day for the last almost two months or so has been almost too good.
I guess let's talk about the balm itself first, then I can coo a little more about what it has done for my skin.
The balm all cuddled up together is kind of an unpleasant dark brownish gray. It smells really good though, so that helps. It's kind of an herbal, fresh scent. I scoop up a little bit on the mini spoon that comes with (it's adorable) and when you dot it on your face it's still the same dark color. But, once you finally massage it into your face it thins down to an almost clear balm.
I like to give myself a nice facial massage when I'm using this because it's so luxurious it's hard not to massage your face. It's like I use this balm and turn into Gwyneth Paltrow. For massaging your face, this balm has just enough slip. It's not hard to maneuver over your your skin, and it isn't so oily that it turns out slippery.
They say on the Omorovicza website that you can use this as a makeup remover if you are incredibly rich or criminally insane. Paraphrasing, obviously. I use this cleanser after removing my makeup so I'm not wasting it. I feel like if I gave it the job of taking off my makeup I wouldn't get all the benefits because it wouldn't be touching my skin as much. And it would get all gunked up with dirty makeup. Just. No.
Oooh! Let's talk about the packaging too. Man. This is L U X E. The jar is made of a thick, frosted glass with a heavy plastic top. It also has one of those mini tops underneath the top to... keep germs out? I don't know. But the double lid thing definitely amps up the luxury feeling. It also comes with a mini scooper spoon (which, as I said, is adorable) and a tiny terry cloth to remove the cleanser with.
So I'm not going to totally attribute this only to this Omorovicza balm, but my skin has consistently been at it's best for the last month and a half or so.
And I'm not going to lie, after like three ish years of having what felt like a never ending parade of white heads, it feels good. I know it's a mix of so many factors all together but I know this balm has made an impact.
Since starting to use this balm on the regular, my skin is noticeably softer, smoother, and less combination. I think the mud part of this balm is soothing down my oily parts, and the oil in the balm is hydrating my dry patches.
I know it's a huge investment skincare product but I'm a huge fan.
