Masks play a hefty role in my skincare routine. Whether it’s for a mid-week pep-up or a weekend pamper it’s a step that I thoroughly enjoy and I promise that it has nothing to do with that fact that I can creep round the flat scaring others. My bevy of face masks is pretty all-encompassing but there was one tub missing that I’d been itching to add into the mix, Omorovicza’s Deep Cleansing Mask. On an evening where I was feeling particularly spendy in this pricey pot went to the basket and since its arrival I’ve been painting it on as a twice weekly occurrence. With additions of Hungary’s healing waters and thermal mud this is supposed to work like your usual cleansing mask with some added oomph. And I find it to do just that; I apply post-cleanse, wait 10 minutes till my face starts to resemble that of a statue then rinse off and continue on with the rest of my routine. The next morning all the gunk is there for the world to see in the form of some pretty pesky pimples, nice. Drawing toxins out is nothing new in the world of mud masks, but although this tends to bring them on it does seem to rid of them pretty quickly. Two, three days later and everything’s healed and peace is restored.
In terms of my other favourite mask offerings there’s not much between them. The Omorovicza works like a slightly more souped-up version of Origins Clear Improvements Mask but isn’t as radiance boosting and blackhead-zapping as the Borghese Fango Active Mud for Face & Body. If you too are feeling (very) spendy, then you can pick up the Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask from Cult Beauty for £57 (thank gawd my Mum doesn’t read my blog!). My top clay-based pick is still the Origins Clear Improvements; not too pricey and rids your skin of any lurking nasties. But now, with the Omorovicza, my mud mask massive is complete.
