Hey, lovely people, it’s the weekend again! The spring is finally here in London and here I am writing about the skincare item I have been loving over the last few weeks. Meet Omorovicza Ultramoor Mud Mask: the facial mask that is known for its detoxifying and deep cleansing benefits. I bought it to tackle the remnants of my winter skin troubles, to detoxify and brighten my face and, of course, feel pampered.
I have never been the big facial masks user, but since getting the Malin+Goetz Detox Mask (check my blog post here) I got into the idea of giving my skin the little extra TLC on a more regular basis, and Omorovicza mask has so far proven be a super valuable addition to my skincare rituals.
According to Omorovicza, you are able to “transform skin’s appearance in just a few minutes with this flash-lifting anti-ageing mud mask. Gentle exfoliation and deep pore cleansing complete the treatment to leave the facial contour more sharply defined and the complexion brighter”. Having used this mask several times now, I can attest to the claims. I have been blown away by the way my skin felt and looked after the first time!
As Omorovicza Ultramoor Mud Mask contains essential oils of sage, chamomile, rosemary and rose geranium which have a cooling and antiseptic effect on the skin. I did struggle with a few breakouts around my chin and my nostrils over the winter months and I feel that the antiseptic effect of this mask has definitely helped, as I have fewer pimples now.
If you have been reading my blog for a while, you probably know that my skin is quite sensitive, often dry and dehydrated. I also have rosacea which occasionally gets flared up. I have been a fan of other Omorovicza skincare products. Omorovicza’s Queen of Hungary face mist is one of those seemingly useless products that I love using when an instant refreshment and cooling effect on my dry or flushed skin is needed. Also, I have been enjoying Omorovicza’s gorgeous perfume Bagatelle de Gabrielle – it has such a beautiful clean and fresh scent, not heavy or overpowering, which makes it perfect for wearing in spring!
I have tried a few other products from the small sample pouches Omorovicza sends with my orders and loved all of them. I have not, however, bought any other full size skincare items yet (apart from the Mud Mask). Watch this space as I think there is a high likelihood of me going for some 🙂
I love the simple package design of all Omorovicza products: nothing fancy, but it looks chic and sleek!
The little scoop comes handy for getting the mask out of the jar and lets you avoid sticking fingers into it in order to retrieve the product. I guess, it will become even more useful when I use up more than a half of the jar!
The mask itself has a nice pearlescent sheen to it, it is fairly thick but spreads very easily. The scent of essential oils is quite heavenly and I find it relaxing. It reminds me of the some cough medicines, the sage oil sure helps the sinuses as you inhale it! If you are not the fan of sage, it may be an issue as it is quite prominent.
I love the gentle tingly sensation on my skin when the mask is drying, together with the aromatherapeutic effect the whole experience is quite relaxing.
I usually wash the mask off with the muslin cloth soaked in warm water after about 10 or 15 minutes. It is not too messy, and I really enjoy the way my skin feels after this mask is removed: it is almost baby soft, looks brighter, more evenly toned, and I think the pores on my nose and cheeks shrink too!

I know that the Omorovicza is not a cheap brand by any means, it is, after all, a luxury, and the Ultramoor Mud Mask will set you back £65 ($82), but I can confidently say that it is a worthy skincare investment.
It is quite funny, really, in a way I am not rushing the time, but I cannot wait till my pamper day (Sunday night) so I can enjoy the mask whilst having a nice soak in the bath, unwinding before the long working week ahead.
I would love to hear your thoughts on Omorovicza Ultramoor Mud Mask or if you have tried any other products from the brand that you think I would like?
Thank very much for reading!
