Review: Omorovicza Thermal Cleaning Balm

I'm slightly in love with balms at the moment.  After I burned my face off with a facemask the other week, I've been giving my face some TLC, so this week, I'm showing you my favourite balm products from my collection.

I'll start off with this little black beauty from Omorovicza.  I've long been fascinated by the idea of the Thermal Cleansing Balm from the Omorovicza range, mainly because it's black admittedly (my inner goth is fascinated), but I've been seeing a few reviews of the range around some of my trusted blogging buddies, so thought it was time to take the plunge.

Based on the mineral healing properties of the thermal spas in Budapest, the thermal cleansing balm gets the unique colour from Hungarian Moor Mud, which is rich in magnesium, contains sweet almond oil to avoid stripping the skin, and is scented - oh most heavenly scented! - with orange blossom.  It's possibly the most luxurious-smelling cleanser I own, and I find myself burying my nose in the jar every time I use it.

To use it, you scrape a small amount from the jar (and a little really does go a long way), emulsify it between your palms, then apply the resulting liquified balm to your face and massage it into your skin, then, using either a damp muslin cloth or a face flannel, remove it, again, whilst massaging your face.  It's not perfect for removing eye makeup, in all honesty, so I'd suggest you use a separate eye-makeup remover.  I love that you can see grains of the mineral-rich mud in the balm when you emulsify it, and the scent really makes this a wondrous cleansing experience.

I find that a single cleanse is sufficient with this (I very rarely double cleanse anyway, I have to say), and my skin is left soft, supple and glowing afterwards, with no dryness or taut-feeling.  It is on the price-y side at £46 a jar, but this will last a very long time, and it's rocketed to the top of my re-purchase list.

  1. I'm falling for balms too. This is hovering at the top of my purchase list. I'm a double cleanse kinda gal, so can easily justify another cleanser in my cupboard....

  2. OMG, I love this cleanser apart from when it leaves my sink with grey residue.

    Worked wonders on my skin when I had a massive breakout.


  3. Honestly first Mrs.Hirons and then yourself recommending cleansers, not to mention So Far So Chic waxing lyrical about Suti, I will be buying I know. Thankyou for this, I like the idea of a cleanser that can calm.

  4. This is just divine. The Omorovicza website has videos where they talk about it. You can hear how they pronounce it there :)

    1. Ha ha! I don't really do video (I'm hardcore old-school, can't be doing with listening to the internet), but I shall check them out ...


Thanks, I love hearing from you!
