Back with another beauty snack, and this time, it’s to tell you that Omorovicza skincare is now available here in Malaysia stores. Omorovicza (pronounced Omo-ro-veet-sa) is a luxury skincare brand from Budapest, Hungary, and their story lies around the use and incorporation of thermal water into their products.
Omorovicza utilizes the healing properties of Hungary’s thermal waters in all their products. These thermal water baths had long been popular for people to soak in, to help heal skin problems, and also to soothe aching muscles. The curative properties of thermal waters can never be under estimated!
Their most popular, and bestselling item, is the Omorovicza Queen of Hungary mist. This is so named, as it is based on a perfume water first formulated for Queen Elisabeth of Hungary in the 14th century. This then explains why it is fragranced.
I have used the Queen of Hungary mist, and I have travel sizes of it lying around from various purchases over time, but I will say here that I’m not particularly enamoured by it. The reason is primarily due to the scent – I prefer my skincare products not to be so perfumed, especially a facial mist. Otherwise, it serves a perfectly decent function to hydrate skin.
I like the luxurious glass bottle (even if it makes it far less portable) and the spray mechanism is impressively fine. You aren’t hit with a spray of water in your face, and quite literally enjoy a fine mist of water, similar to that from an aerosol can without the aerosol. That said, it is one for the fat of wallet, as with most products in Omorovicza. It is after all, a luxury skincare brand 🙂
Another product I’ve tried prior to its launch here in Malaysia is the Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm. At one time, it was one of the most popular items featured on Instagram, and naturally I was suckered in. It is a decent cleansing balm, and even nice on the skin. But you can go read what I think of it haha! 😀
Other products I have tried are from the Omorovicza Discovery Set or Omorovicza Essentials Set, which is an excellent way of testing the products,
I personally find that the Omorovicza Balancing Moisturiser is quite nice. I sampled it in the discovery set and it left me with a very favourable impression. It wasn’t too heavy, and I liked how it sank right into my skin. I am quite particular about my creams these days, for I find that most conventional formulation do not suit me anymore. So I am more keen to try something that is a little less conventional. I did test some of the Omorovicza Gold Rescue Cream during the launch, and it felt lovely! It was very rich, but my skin felt velvety smooth and soft thereafter. That was also true of the Blue Diamond Serum, but that one costs an arm, leg and kidney, so I’m not quite ready to go there just yet! 😛
I also purchased the Omorovicza Acid Fix acid treatment a little while ago, and am still trying it out. The jury is still out for me, but I am trying hard to figure out what I really think about it. When I’m good and ready, I’ll share my thoughts 😀
Thus far, that’s been my experience with Omorovicza products. I’d peg it for someone with more matured skin, if I’m to be honest. Yes, you can use it if you are younger, and have fat wallets. But your skin may not appreciate it as much as older skin might.
The other thing is that unlike other products I use or am exposed to, Omorovicza isn’t very science-heavy. In that respect, I do find that the products will serve those who perhaps aren’t looking for something terribly science-based, want something that looks and feels luxurious, and is generally effective for general upkeep of skin.
That said, for those keeping an eye on what’s new, know now that you can find this luxury skincare brand right here in Malaysia, both online and in store (Ken’s Apothecary stores) 🙂
Have you tried anything from Omorovicza?
I’d be interested to know if you have and your thoughts on it. The brand seemed to pick up traction online in the past 2-3 years so it is quite ripe for it to enter our market now. Your thoughts? 🙂
Omorovicza skincare is available at all Ken’s Apothecary stores and online. Prices range from RM299 to RM1629
