For anyone who loves that hit of camphor that comes from Eve Lom cleanser, it’s in a lighter, less medicinal version in Omorovicza Hydra Melting Cleanser. If you love your cleansers, this really is one to look out for, even at £65. As a tri-phase, that turns from balm-gel to oil on the skin and then to a milky emulsion when it comes into contact with water, it’s the best of that category that I’ve used.
This is a cleanser that is just an absolute pleasure to use – soft, melty, tactile and fresh – so it’s no surprise that it delivered a very good cleanse that left my skin feeling alive (thank you, camphor) and perfectly clean. Key ingredient wise, there’s mallow flower, sea buckthorn berry oil, and essential oils of sage, rose geranium and chamomile that make it an all round delight. This is definitely one for the cleansing brigade to get excited about.
What I like about cleansing balm is that supple feeling on the finish; tri or bi-phase cleansers that transform to milk when water is applied can often undo that comfort feeling and you end up with skin that feels taut. I have to say that didn’t happen here, but neither did I end up with that same balmy film feel. I did feel that I had both an effective and luxurious cleanse with Omorovicza Hydra Melting Cleanser, which comes in a 100ml pot. You can find it HERE.
