Omorovicza are a funny brand, as they’ve been around for a while and have an extremely good reputation, yet they’re not that well known; Omorovicza fans are pretty committed to the luxury range and as to where they sit in the skincare market, I’d say they’re kind of a more pampering and less clinical alternative to Biologique Recherche. I’m yet to try an Omorovicza product that I haven’t loved, so I’d say this a range of skincare that’s pricey, but worth it!
The Omorovicza Summer Edit is a small collection of products from the range that have been put together to help you achieve that infamous, post-facial glow – the edit is inspired by fresh-faced and make-up free models as seen on the fall runways. The first three products are all about cleansing and exfoliating, starting with one of the most popular products which is the Thermal Cleansing Balm. I could not wait to get this on my skin as I’d heard such great things about it, and it is a fab product; wonderfully nourishing yet very effective at make-up removal, even on the eyes. There are two versions available, the one pictured above and a larger, luxury size that’s just launched – if you’re a fan and need to stock up then the luxury size is for you since it works out a lot better value. The Refining Facial Polisher isn’t normally my sort of thing as I don’t like to use manual exfoliators unless they are very gentle. This one comes out looking like molasses with sand in it, which you work over the face and can be left on as a mask-type treatment as it’s pretty dense and non-foaming. It’s a fantastic pre make-up exfoliator as skin feels really polished after use. The Queen of Hungary Mist pictured above is a special edition with a very pretty bottle. This is a rose and neroli scented spray that’s just lovely – it’s the perfect finishing product after using either or both of the above products.
The final skincare products in the edit take care of hydration, with the Mineral Shield providing a mineral SPF30, protecting against both UVA and UVB rays in a non-comedogenic formula. The Perfecting Lip Balm is soooo gorgeous – it tastes yummy (not always a good thing if you’re like me and prone to applying over and over again without giving it much thought) and it’s wonderfully hydrating on the lips without feeling greasy.
Finally the finishing products are Complexion Perfection BB Cream, a traditional, all-in-one BB product that provides skincare and make-up benefits alongside an SPF. The Mineral Touch Concealer is probably the product I’m most excited about as it’s rich and creamy; it’s available in two shades but as I have the darker one I haven’t been able to fully put it to the test. The final product pictured above is the only body product to make the edit, which is the Gold Shimmer Oil, a perfect Summer product for adding both hydration and a gentle sheen to any exposed skin. If you’re going to try just one product, make it either the Thermal Cleansing Balm or the Refining Facial Polisher, as both of these are such great representatives of the brand – they’re wonderfully luxurious to use whilst delivering results.
