Beauty || Starting out with Omorovicza

Omorovicza is one of those brands that I've wanted to try for quite some time now but I've always been put off by the price tag. 
So imagine my surprise when I opened the 6 piece introductory kit   on Christmas morning. 
Priced at £42 this is a great way of getting to know the brand and see if those well hyped products are worth the hype. 
In this little kit you get the 
- Thermal cleansing balm (5ml) full price £45
-Cleansing foam (30ml) full price £45
-Illuminating moisturiser (20ml) full price £85
-Queen of Hungary mist (30ml) full price £46
-Instant plumping cream (5ml) £105
-Deep Cleansing mask (15ml) £57 

Instead of going through each product in detail I thought it be easier to tell you which products stole the show for me and which one I felt was perhaps wasted on little old me. 
I really like the mist but personally I found it very similar to the Caudalie beauty elixir and the cleansing foam well just wasn't anything to write home about. Again the moisturiser is lovely but I think there are cheaper alternatives.
As for the cleansing balm that's a whole different ball game - this odd looking black balm relies on minerals from the Hungarian thermal waters and muds gently lifts impurities whilst keeping skin hydrated. 
What I really like is that it  gives my skin a nice healthy glow but doesn't leave a nasty film.
I'm also in love with the deep cleansing mask and I cannot wait to repurchase this bad boy.
This clay mask uses moor mud to purify and de-congest the skin to revel bright,fresh and beautiful skin. 
Word of warning when they say deep cleaning they mean deep cleaning and I'd recommend that if your wanting to use this before a big event do it at least a few days in advance. 
It really does bring all the yucky grime to the surface but within a few days all that is gone and your left with lovely skin. 
This along with the balm really helped take my dull cold ridden skin from grey to glowing. 
You can also use this as an overnight spot treatment. 

Now finally the product that for me just didn't really shine was the instant plumping cream I just found that  it was wasted on my skin especially when it retails at £105 for a full sized pot. 
It's a product that's aimed at reduced the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and at 23 that just isn't a concern of mine. 
This is a rich moisturiser containing  hyaluronic acid is left on overnight to reveal plump and juicy skin however I found that the Origins drink up intensive mask left me with the same results. 
However if this is something your after I'm sure you'll love this product. 

I really love these little starter kits and travel packs because they are great for getting to know the brand and seeing if its worth splashing the cash and eating beans for the rest of the week. 
I know that come pay day I will defiantly be surviving off the latter. 

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Who's that stranger ...

Oh hey there you probably wont remember me it's been rather a long time since I put pen to paper or rather finger tips to keypad. 
But I've been thinking that I really miss writing about the things I love so thought what's the worst that can happen. 
After spending four years in University I'd found that once I left that the desire to write was there but I simply couldn't be bothered. 
The passion had gone. 
However since having a break I've found that I actually crave having an outlet in which I can share my thoughts and feelings ... now before you go thinking that this is going to be a deep blog it's really not.
I'm just using it as a means to get back into writing. 

So what's it all about I hear you say? 
Instead of focusing solely on beauty I'm going to tell you about some other passions of mine. 
There's going to be fitness posts, cooking, lifestyle and beauty. 
I may also share a little bit of my wedding planning journey which will be commencing at the end of this month. 

Let's roll with this and see where we end up .
My name's Brigid nice to meet you and I hope you enjoy my little snippet of the internet.
