What’s good about it?
If you like the other Omorovicza mud products such as the Thermal Cleansing Balm and the Ultramoor Mud Mask/Deep Cleansing Mask, you will love this. It’s like the perfect hybrid between the Mud Mask and the Cleansing Balm. The texture is great, it’s not too runny, it’s not drying. It definitely leaves the skin fresh and clean, and is a great morning cleanse if you’re not too sensitive because….
What’s not so good about it?
…it’s really strong on the fragrance/essential oil side. I personally think fragrance, eucalyptus and peppermint is too much. It’s overkill. I used this while my skin was normal and could feel the slight eucalyptus cool tingle, but I couldn’t use it while retinol’ing. It was far too much.
And as an aside, the hole in the packaging is a little too big, it lets out too much. Be careful when you squeeze!
Would I purchase/repurchase?
Probably not. I’d stick to the Balm, which although includes fragrance, is nowhere near as strong.
Do you need it?
If you are an Omorovicza fan, and have used their other products with no problem, don’t have sensitised skin and equally have no issue with fragrance/essential oils, you’ll probably love it.
Otherwise I would patch test before purchasing. It’s not cut and dry, I do like it, but it just feels stronger on the skin than the balm.
