One of the newest additions to the awesome Omorovicza skincare line is the Omorovicza Ultramoor Mud Mask, which has a lot to live up to considering that one of the brand’s most iconic products is the amazing Deep Cleansing Mask – a product I use at least every other time I do an at-home facial, and to be honest, if I didn’t have products to test all the time, I’d probably use it for ever facial – so I was very excited to get my hands on this new arrival.
On the surface, both masks seem pretty similar; they’re both mud-based, they both suit most skin types other than sensitive and they both provide a skin detox. However, the Deep Cleansing Mask performs the basic (albeit very effective) task of sucking out all the impurities and, as the name suggests, giving the skin a deep cleanse. The Ultramoor Mud Mask also provides a level of deep cleansing, but it does a lot more than that in one sitting; it contains enzymes that exfoliate, peptides and amino acids that rehydrate and soften alongside the moor mud that purifies skin. Consequently, a lot is happening in one sitting and once the product is removed, you are left with a noticeable glow from that skin that’s both cleansed and lightly hydrated.
Interestingly, the Ultramoor Mud Mask is more clay-like than the Deep Cleansing Mask as it dries to a clay finish, so you do have the usual battle of removal that you don’t really get with the Deep Cleansing Mask, but that’s okay as long as you’re used to clay masks. Having thoroughly tested both masks, I’d say that the Ultramoor Mud Mask is a one-stop treatment that’s great if you have mostly decent skin that just benefits from a quick and effective product. It’s also a great midweek pep if you like to save your full facial for the weekend. It’s very much a jack of all trades whilst the Deep Cleansing Mask is the master of one – it deep cleanses like nothing else. If I had to pick between the two, I’d go for the Deep Cleansing Mask, but that’s because it’s uniquely suited to my tricky skin. The Ultramoor Mud Mask is much more of a “wow” mask, so if you’re the sort of person who thinks masks are a waste of time and don’t do much, you might find your mind changed by this one, which is £65 here – link.
