I Am Joining the Mud Cult with Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask!

Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask box

Have you noticed the lack of clay mask reviews on Mostly Sunny? Up until I tried Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask (120 USD on the Omorovicza site. This post does not contain affiliate links) recently, I had given up on clay masks for years. I have combination skin, so naturally many SAs tried to sell me clay masks and I did try some. However, I was always disillusioned. The texture was often thick and unpleasant, it cracked as it dried, and frankly I never saw enough difference to keep up with it. Since I have always had good experience with Omorovicza products and the brand is famous for the Deep Cleansing Mask, I decided to give it a go!

Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask pot

The packaging of Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask is the same with Thermal Cleansing Balm. The glass pot is very sturdy, and it comes with a spatula so you can scoop the product out easily.

Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask

Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask smells lightly of orange blossom. The texture is creamy yet lightweight. You are supposed to cover the face (and neck if you want to) with a generous layer of the mask, wait for 15-20 minutes before removing it (I like to do this with a damp muslin cloth. It offers some gentle exfoliation). Since the mask is not drying whatsoever, you can leave it on for longer if you want to. It doesn’t crack or tighten uncomfortably as it dries. I do experience some slight tingling almost every time, but it doesn’t bother me.

Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask review

Besides the fact that it isn’t drying at all, what’s special about Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask is the fact that it is rich in minerals (calcium and magnesium). Like what you would expect from a good clay mask, it cleanses the skin thoroughly. At the same time, the minerals work wonders. My skin is always softer, brighter, poreless, and well-hydrated by the time I remove the mask. It’s such a treat!

To make sure not all clay masks have got better since the last time I used any, I tried some sample sachets from other brands as well (including another beloved skincare brand, Aesop). What I am about to tell you is not good news for those who want to save some bucks: Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask is truly one of a kind. I either experienced drying with other masks, or they simply did not measure up to the brightening and pore-tightening effect. In short, I’m more or less mentally-prepared for the fact that this is a pricey product I simply have to repurchase!

Here’s some great news for those of you who are interested in Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask and Thermal Cleansing Balm: for the moment, they make a Summer Detox Pair (for your reference. Not affiliate link) on the Omorovicza site for 180 USD (the full price for both products would be 225 USD)! My pot of Thermal Cleansing Balm is on its last leg (and it makes me really sad), and I stand by what I said: it is not something I would use every day, but it is such a treat for the skin! Nowadays I use this combination once a week, and I am truly hooked!

Here is the ingredient list:

Bottom line: I was skeptical about Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask being described as something that would work for all skin types, but trying is believing! It cleanses my skin thoroughly without drying my normal (to dry, especially when it’s cold) cheeks out. I get incredibly soft, smooth, poreless, and well-hydrated skin from this mask, and this is something I had never thought a clay mask could do! If you are a clay mask enthusiast, you must lay your hands on this. If you are a clay mask skeptic, you must lay your hands on this as well, just so you’ll know not all clay masks are made equal!

Have you tried Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask? What’s your favorite clay mask? Does anyone else avoid clay masks like what I used to do?

    looks good :)

      It’s a good one!

    This mask seems beautiful but the price! Yikes! I rarely do masks, I have a few basic Cattier that I like because I don’t give them time to dry, otherwise it’s like you said, not pleasant and quite unfomfortable.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Helene, I know what you mean. The problem is I struggle to find anything comparable, so it’s a necessary evil ;)

  • http://MyLuciteDreams.com/ MyLuciteDreams

    Ooooh. I would love to try this one! Clay masks have come a long way. They can be moisturizing at the same time. I personally like to have one that tightens on the skin and alternate. I love they’re Cleansing Balm and the way it smells!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Taylor, what’s your favorite clay mask? I tried a couple more recently, but nothing really compares to this one!

  • http://twitter.com/KrystleKouture Krystle Kouture

    So glad to hear that this didn’t dry you out. I hate that feeling right before its time to take a mask off. The price is a bit of a turn off though. I don’t mind splurging on products I’ll use everyday like a moisturizer, but a once a week mask I dont think I could do it!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Krystle, I know what you mean, but before I can find an equivalent (though I seriously doubt it), it’s a necessary evil! It just cleanses so, so well!

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    Wow that’s a pricey one! But it works well, so I guess it’s worth it! It’s great to find a clay mask that’s doesn’t strip your skin raw.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Tracy, I know! And I’m so hopelessly in love with it! This one is actually really hydrating. I can use it even when my skin is acting up a little!

  • http://www.beautyloves.be/ BeautyLoves

    This sounds as a great mask. I’d like to smell it, because often clay masks just smell like clay and not like orange blossom :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha this one smells like orange blossom! It doesn’t have a strong scent, but it’s a pleasant one!

  • Lily

    I’m looking for a clay mask, but this is too pricey. I guess if it works well, then it’s worth it. It’s not available here though

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Lily, I’d honestly gladly repurchase the cleansing balm and the mask, so do consider the duo. I think their website ships all over the world as well!

  • http://kissandmakeupsbeautyblog.wordpress.com/ Kiss & Make-up

    Poreless? Sold!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Seriously. You’ll end up with skin that rivals a baby’s butt!

  • Christina

    Considering how much I could use a decent clay mask, I wouldn’t mind spending $120 on this (says the ever frugal woman). But there is another mask I have been wanting to try: Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay. When I buy it I’ll test it out and let you know if it’s a good alternative to the Omorovicza mask.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Christina, I’m curious about that one now! Do keep me posted!

  • http://beautyreductionista.blogspot.ca/ Liz

    Clay masks never did anything for me either. I always suspected that the act of simply rinsing/wiping them off was the beneficial step, not the actual product. Now I’m super curious about this product and brand!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Liz, this really really does something! More than something! I get super happy because my skin is bright, my pores are less visible, and everything’s just sooo soft!

  • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com/ Catherine

    It’s been a long time since I’ve tried a face mask… I think there was one that worked for me in high school, this green clay mask, but other than that, they always seemed to dry my skin out like crazy. I sort of wrote off face masks in general, thinking they didn’t do much except make my skin flaky. But maybe I need to start looking into them again. I think I’d look for something very hydrating… but pore-clearing too… if that’s even possible!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Catherine, I know what you mean! I gave up on clay masks for years because I was just never impressed. This one works in the most pleasant way. You should see if you can get a sample sachet somewhere!

  • Joyce (bronzer bunny)

    groan, i don’t need this but i REALLY WANT IT!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      To be honest I think you do need this, Joyce ;)
