I got this in the Selfridges Beauty Box a few weeks back and I was really excited that it was in the box, having heard such good things about the brand and raves about the mask. I love using face masks and particularly love clay masks. This is the first time I have ever tried anything from this high end Hungarian brand, though I heard of it a long time back.
I have to say, the size of the sample (5ml) was disappointing – its pretty small so I could only use the mask twice.
The full size mask is £57 for 50ml
This is what Omorovicza have to say about it:
- Much more than a deep-cleansing treatment, this calcium and magnesium-rich mask actively re-energises and brightens the skin as it draws out impurities.
- Hungarian Moor mud, rich in calcium and magnesium carbonates, cleanses deeply and nourishes.
- White clay naturally absorbs pore-clogging oil and draws out toxins and impurities.
- Mineral CosmetologyTM, a patented mineral delivery system, leaves skin firmer, more supple and younger-looking.
This masks applies well, its quite easy to spread it across your face and feels comfortable when its on. It does harden as it dries but not to the point that your face feels like a rock, as some face masks can do to you.
Both times I used this I left it on for about 30 mins where as the directions say to leave it for 15-20 minutes. I often do this with face masks, I feel you get more from them if you leave them on for longer.
Washing this off was quite easy too, I have found it much harder to get other clay masks off.
Now on to the results – well, I want to tell you that this mask left my skin feeling amazing – but I cant, that would be a massive over-exaggeration! This mask, whilst pleasant was simply not all that impressive for me. It was okay but I didn’t feel that it left my skin particularly soft, pampered, plump or nourished, did I think it helped to draw out impurities, which I think is the main function of a deep cleansing mask. I was disappointed since I had high hopes, but this was just so so for me, and I felt the results were the same both times I have used it.
I have used much cheaper clay masks and had much better results – the Herbalife one reviewed here and my current favourite from Uni Brennan, reviewed here are much more effective and not to mention a lot cheaper too!
In my opinion, this is not worth the high price tag and should be skipped! Sorry, but there is no way I would pay for a full size version of this.
Have you tried this? Were you “wowed” by it? I would love to know! What is your favourite clay face mask?
I am giving this 2.5/5
Thanks for reading!
