The problem right, when you start getting into anything, be it makeup or skincare, you start developing an unhealthy interest in items that you can’t actually get in local stores. I tend to follow many bloggers from the UK for some reason, and it’s a whole new world of brands and products there that I’m not sure I’ll ever see here.
Enter then, online shopping – praise the online shopping Gods!
And that’s how I ended up lusting over and eventually purchasing the very highly raved Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm without ever having seen or tried it in person. A quick search online will throw up multiple glowing reviews from many high-profile bloggers, some of whom know their stuff. Which is why I got suckered in even deeper!
Omorovicza is a Hungarian brand of luxury skincare hailing from Budapest (that’s a city I hope to visit some day!) It utilizes Hungary’s thermal waters in their fairly extensive product range. The thermal waters contain minerals that heal and rejuvenate skin, and there’s even a spa built on the site of this thermal spring. The Thermal Cleansing Balm is one of their popular products, and as I’m an avid user of cleansing balm, I just had to try it.
A few months of use and half a tub later… I’m afraid I’m going to be that spoilsport and say “Meh… let’s move on!”
