Is this Omorovicza Classic the Perfect Summer Face Mist?

Share the love!

Every so often a product comes along whose quality shines through so immediately that you know you’ll be rebuying for years.

And for me, this was the case as soon as I tried the Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist.

Although I’m by no means a face mist addict (even though I like them I always forget to actually use them), this is one that I literally pick up and spray every time I pass it – partly because I feel ridiculously chic using it thanks to the gorgeous packaging – but mainly because the ingredients and super fine mist action make using this really feel like such a luxury.

As an added bonus, the ultra-soothing, spa-like scent (courtesy of neroli and rose), really adds to the enjoyment of using this.

Because even though I don’t find face mists a necessary part of my skincare routine (I get enough hydration from my Fresh Deep Hydration Facial Toner twice a day), I really do believe that the ritual of using skincare you love can be almost as important as the actual products themselves…And this is one of those products that I really do love using (plus whoever said no to some extra hydration?).

 


Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist

Like the rest of Omorovicza’s Queen of Hungary Mist line-up, this spray is inspired by the Queen of Hungary Water, the world’s first recorded perfume, which was created for Queen Elizabeth of Hungary in the 14th century.

As well as its (truly) blissful scent, Omorovicza’s spray contains several skin-soothing goodies, including glycerin (to soften), apple fruit extract (for its antioxidant benefits) and Hungarian thermal water (for its mineral properties).

It’s delicately fragranced with neroli and rose, and designed to be used daily as a post-cleanse toner, to prep skin pre-makeup, and as a spritz throughout the day whenever skin feels dry and needs a refreshing pick-me-up.

Vegan and vegetarian, this spray is also alcohol, oil, and phthalate-free.


 


How to use it

Since this comes out as such a fine mist over the skin (instead of one of those really harsh sprays that squirts you in the eye when you least expect it), I find myself using this whenever my skin feels in need of light refreshment. That pretty much means this sits on my desk so I can use it as a perk-me-up when stuck for ideas when writing (so quite a lot).

The Queen of Hungary Mist is not to be simply consigned to just one use though…No, no, this little regal spray is also great for keeping in handbags for refreshing tired eyes/dehydrated skin/flagging makeup. It also works beautifully as a post-beach refreshing mist, as well as for quick hydration on flights or while travelling.

Spray liberally from a sensible distance from the face (I find around 12 inches works just fine). Alternatively, spritz onto a cotton pad (preferably recyclable) for a post-cleansing toner.

What other people have to say

Customers on the Omorovicza Instagram page have commented on the versatility and hydrating benefits of this face mist, with one saying “This is absolutely my fav. I keep one in my car, my kitchen and my parents house. It’s amazing for my skin.”

While, over on the Omorovicza website, another customer says “It’s the best Mist I‘ve ever tried, and I tested a lot! It does not dry out the skin, moisturizes and the scent is very pleasant! Thank you!”

 


The takeaway

I’m a total sucker for anything that makes me feel like a million Dollars when I use it (without actually costing much more than a meal out), and Omorovicza’s Queen of Hungary Mist definitely falls into that category.

Is it a necessity? Absolutely not. Is it one of life’s little luxuries that perks up your day just a little bit every time you use it? For me at least, definitely.

I’m also loving the Hungarian thermal water this contains, which as someone who has spent a summer wallowing blissfully in some of Hungary’s natural thermal spas, I can confirm is both delightfully mineral-rich and skin-softening.

As a side note, the high-quality pump action spray here means you get an even application that is genuinely superior to a lot of sprays I’ve used.

Great for: Any real face mist fans who will probably love this thanks to its natural ingredients, delightful scent and dewy results. Even face mist sceptics like me are likely to enjoy the sheer luxury of using this. Gift giving, since even the hardest-to-please aunt/sister/friend is likely to enjoy this.

Not-so-great for: Affordability, this is unlikely to win any awards for being a budget buy (unless you’re some sort of oligarch, then this might seem really cheap).  Also, very sensitive skin types, who could find the rose or orange flower waters here irritating.

Omorvicza’s Queen of Hungary Mist is £62.00 on the Omorvicza UK website/$95.00 on the Omorvicza US website
