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 strong on the fragrance/essential oil side. The eucalyptus and peppermint fragrance is going to be too overpowering if you have sensitised skins. 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 would be too much.
And as a warning, the hole in the packaging is a little too big, it can let out too much if you’re heavy-handed. Go easy and be careful when you squeeze. Other than that, fab.
Would I purchase/repurchase?
Yes. Although I’ll stick to the Balm as my luxury cleanse, I’ve found myself reaching for this a lot in the mornings to wake myself up.
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 will absolutely love it.
If you are particularly sensitive, I would consider patch testing before purchasing.
