Derived from the mineral-rich thermal waters of Hungary, Omorovicza are the healing and anti-aging experts. Beginning over 2,000 years ago, the brand was discovered after the Omorovicza family built a spa on a site on a medieval healing spring.

Like a love story made in skincare heaven, 200 years later family descendant Stephen took his future wife Margaret to bathe in the thermal waters of Budapest.  The couple were so amazed at how their skin felt that they teamed up with a Nobel prize-winning laboratory to help them bottle up the waters restorative qualities – and Omorovicza was born!

The Favourites:

From mud, to gold and diamonds, whatever nutrients your skin needs, Omorovicza has them at your fingertips. Here are some of our top must-haves for your beauty bag:

Mud Collection Thermal Cleansing Balm

What’s in it? This night time cleanser relies on natural extracts and minerals from the Hungarian thermal waters and mud.Combined with the brand’s innovative Hyrdro Mineral Transference, it works to recuperate and maintain bright, young skin, leaving your complexion polished and smooth after just one use.

When to use: We recommend you work the balm in to your cheeks in a circular motion, softly breaking it down until the texture is almost oily. Gently rub around the eye area to remove any stubborn eye makeup.

Expert tip: Remove the balm with a muslin cloth, rather than with bare hands. This enables the nourishing oils and minerals to remain on the face acting as a treatment for the skin.

 Gold Flash Firming Serum

What’s in it? One of the brand’s most popular products, this firming serum contains one of Omorovicza’s signature ingredients – Hungarian thermal waters.  Combined with the brand’s patented innovative Hyrdro Mineral Transference, the serum’s minerals deeply penetrate the epidermis, strengthening and healing damage resulting in firmer, younger looking skin.

When to use: We recommend using every day. Once you’ve cleansed the skin, apply all over the face before applying your moisturiser.

Blue Diamond Super Cream

What’s in it? The superwoman of anti-ageing creams! Containing 3 – 5 amino acids and multifaceted diamonds, this super cream’s powers work by tricking skin cells into believing collagen has been compromised – causing them to create more. It’s Dipalmitoyl Hydroxyprolin and Vitamin C gives your skin a radiance that is left plump and illuminated, as well as supercharging the skin’s ability to reverse the ageing process.

When to use: We recommend using this superpower every day after cleansing for optimal results.

Complexion Corrector SPF20

What’s in it? This uniquely formulated Complexion Corrector transforms dull, tired skin boosting radiance whilst protecting against UVA and UVB rays. Again, the brand’s carefully crafted Hydro Mineral Transference allows minerals to be deeply penetrated into the skin. The product’s ruby crystal minimises fine lines and wrinkles for a smoother complexion. Even better, the corrector is a three-in-one moisturiser, primer and sunscreen – perfect if you’re in a rush!

When to use: We recommend you use this daily after cleansing for a smooth and even tone.
