Omoroivza Queen of Hungary Mist

I’ve recognized some skin care products for sticking around for decades, but this is the first time I’ve encountered something that has passed the test for centuries. The original formula of Queen of Hungary Water was formulated for Queen Elisabeth of Hungary in the 14th century. It was the original “must have” in Europe, known all over the continent for centuries. Are you paying attention yet? Because this legend certainly had mine. And I can’t say I blame the Queen for reportedly having the original formula written in letters of gold. Yes, it is that good.

And I am no stranger to sprays or sprits. I use these products year-round: for extra moisture in the winter and a refreshing cool-down in the summer. So trust me when I say this one is special. It is part fragrance, but only in the sense that it effects your mood in the most lovely way. The Orange Blossom, Rose, and Sage Waters are uplifting, refreshing and soothing all at the same time. The updated formula contains no alcohol, allowing for tremendous skin care benefits.

The whole Omorovicza line utilizes Hungarian Thermal Water, full of minerals and trace elements that work wonders on the skin. In addition, the founders developed Omorovicza Pannon Complex that works to best deliver these beneficial ingredients. So, as your mood lifts, you are toning and hydrating the skin – probably why I have decanted this into smaller containers for the airplane.

Some of my other Omorovicza favorites include: Thermal Cleansing Balm, Gold Eye Lift and Gold Shimmer Oil.



Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm

Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm is like a little slice of European Spa heaven. This black balm has a relaxing, natural scent that I only can describe as spa-like which assures me that the cleansing must be outstanding. I’m probably getting a whiff of:

  • Hungarian Moor Mud:Brimming with calcium and magnesium carbonates, acts as a magnet to impurities and make-up.
  • Sweet Almond Oil: Nourishes the skin and leaves it soft and silky.
  • Orange Blossom: A surprising whiff of orange blossom transports to distant shores.

A finger scoop of the greenish, black cream cleans out my pores and brightens my skin without stripping it of hydration. While it sounds messy and more mask-like, it really is a cream cleanser empowered by European detoxifying ingredients. Just massage all over the face – I’ve tried dry and wet skin and either works. Then rinse using a washcloth. Any skin type can take advantage of the balm.

The mud used in the balm has been around for 2,000 years, used in Hungary’s thermal baths for curative purposes. Five years ago, Margaret and Stephen de Heinrich de Omorovicza began using this ancient healing resource in their skin care system. Their packaging is elegant and harkens a glamourous age.

Right now, at Neiman Marcus, you receive a gift with any $100 Omorovicza purchase – reason to run out and pick some things up. I am a fan of so much of the line and have several Omorovicza product reviews coming up, including Queen of Hungary Mist, Gold Eye Lift and Gold Shimmer Oil.
