Omorovicza sent me a selection of their divine skincare to try, and I’ve put these through their paces over the past few weeks. This Hungarian brand has been on my radar for a while, but I didn’t know too much about it, other than it being quite pricey and hard to pronounce. I’m always wary of products with hyperbolic names, things with magic or miraculous in the title, but my gosh – The Miracle Facial Oil is hands down one of the best things I’ve tried in years. If you’re a regular reader you’ll know I was recommended oils by a dermatologist to even out my skin and prevent it being oily (weird, right?), and for a while now I’ve been a big fan of US brand Sunday Riley. Omorovicza is the Ritz to Sunday Riley’s Pret a Manger – well maybe not Pret, perhaps a semi-fancy hotel for this analogy. Miracle Facial Oil smells delicious and sweet, without being overly perfumed (one of the reassuring and yet deeply annoying things about Sunday Riley is how whiffy their all-natural face oils are). Using it every day has made my skin appear smoothed out and hydrated, it’s silky to the touch and my acne scarring looks less visible. This is a non-greasy oil that can be used as a serum under makeup to give you a dewy look, or just slather it on in the evenings like I do after taking my makeup off and cleansing.
If you try anything from Omorovicza I would recommend the Miracle Facial Oil in a heartbeat to combat all kinds of skin issues, particularly ageing. However, if skin clarity is your issue, the Acid Fix has been great for clearing up spots. It’s not its main function, it’s an acid peel to rejuvenate skin, tackle wrinkles, and reverse damage caused by sunlight and acne, but its tingly goodness has worked a treat on areas of inflammation. After loving the Kate Somerville acid treatment I thought this would be a similar paste on/wash off affair, so I was surprised to learn you keep it on all day under your moisturiser and makeup (use up to three times a week). I prefer using it at night, it feels like a good sleep skincare option, but I have tried wearing it all day and it didn’t effect my makeup.
The Cashmere Cleanser is a new addition to the brand, and it’s as luxurious as it sounds. Apricot oil and shea butter help to decongest and soothe the skin whilst stimulating collagen production. Perfect for the second step of a double cleanse, it’s incredibly hydrating and made me feel like I didn’t even need to follow with moisturiser. Though that might be because the Miracle Oil and the Acid Fix have been doing such a good job in turning my skin around, it’s hard to say. I’m so impressed with this brand, the results are really quick, and it’s absolutely perfect for feeling pampered and protected for the coming colder months. I cannot wait to try more things from their range.
Omorovicza is available in the UK at John Lewis, Cult Beauty, Selfridges, Liberty London, Look Fantastic, Net a Porter, and on their UK site.
