Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Face Mist – If it is fit for a queen…

Whenever I hear Queen of Hungary, I immediately think of Sissi, the movies. They might not be very popular outside of Germany, but here they were a must see when I was young and without fail are repeated every Christmas.

Now Sissi was technically the empress of Hungary, and her story has nothing to do with Omorovicza, but what can I do? Childhood influences have the better on us for the rest of our lives.

The Queen of Hungary face mist I am talking about today was inspired by a perfume made in the 14th century. For Elisabeth, Queen of Hungary. And if it is fit for a queen, how could I resist? But does it stand the test of modern times? Let´s see.

 

What Omorovicza claims:

A quick spritz of this neroli and rose-scented face mist refreshes the skin and lifts the spirits…

Purifying and hydrating, this toner was inspired by the Queen of Hungary Water, the world’s first recorded perfume, formulated for Queen Elisabeth of Hungary in the 14th century. Perfect for a midday pick-me-up or as a post-cleanse toner.

 

Facts:

Prize and size

There are two sizes available, a full size containing 100 ml that retails for 65 € here and a travel size containing 30 ml that is available in a kit here.

Both are packaged in a glass bottle and produce a very fine mist when sprayed.

Texture and smell

Now a spray doesn´t really have a texture to start with, but the mist is very fine and leaves the skin feeling refreshed, but not wet. The scent is truly beautiful, refreshing and floral without being too overpowering.

 

Application and effects

A few quick spritzes left my skin feeling refreshed after cleansing and prepared everything very well for the following skincare steps. It wasn´t overly hydrating on my face, but definitely added back a bit of moisture.

 

Favorable ingredients:

  • Rosa Damascena Flower Water: improves smell, toning
  • Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Flower Water: firming
  • Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Water: Regulating sebum production
  • Glycerin: Hydrating
  • Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract: Contains AHA
  • Saccharomyces (Hungarian Thermal Water) Ferment Extract: Firming (less than 1%)
  • Malpighia Punicifolia (Acerola) Fruit Extract: Antioxidant (less than 1%)
  • Chlorella Vulgaris/Lupinus Albus Protein Ferment: Skin Conditioning (less than 1%)
  • Pectin: Firming (less than 1%)

It is important to the brand that they use special Hungarian Thermal Water enriched with minerals and claim to use a special „Hydro Mineral Transference“ to make sure the minerals penetrate the skin deeply. Hm.

Unfavorable Ingredients:

  • Linalool, Geraniol, Citronellol: potential irritants, all occurring in essential oils

 

Does it live up to its claims?

Most of them.

It refreshes and lifts the spirits for sure. It is hydrating as well, but I am not sure about the purifying aspects. And I am not sure how much potency the „Water“ formulation in the ingredients have, the associated skin care benefits usually are measured in an oil as opposed to a watery formulation.

 

Would I repurchase?

Only if money wasn´t an issue.

I really wholeheartedly enjoyed using it and I would gladly keep spritzing my face with it, but it is too much of an additional step for me to justify the price.

 

Who do I recommend it to?

If you feel the need for a lovely smelling and refreshing face mist and don’t mind the price, go for it.

If you want to really treat yourself, go for it.

But if your skin is heavily dehydrated or you are on a tight budget, look elsewhere.

 

Have you tried the product yourself?

And which childhood memory keeps haunting you?

 

Oh, and did you catch my latest Vlog?

  • The Sissi movies are quite popular in France too, they really like to broadcast them around Christmas! The price is also what make me quite reluctant to try this mist, I can’t help but thinking: what if I like it too much and have to repurchase it all the time, it sounds lovely though!

    • I totally get you, I consider that every time I am tempted to splurge on something as well. There is far too much expensive skincare that I enjoy already…

  • Oh I’ve never heard of the Sissi movies, and I didn’t know about the first recorded use of perfume either. Lots of education in this post! It does sound a lot fancier than the little spritz I have It’s a shame it wasn’t something that wowed you and made you want to keep using and repurchase though.

    • If you are into romantic things, royalty and „Kitsch“, watch Sissi. It was Romy Schneiders breakthrough movie.

  • As much as I’d love to try it I can’t justify this amount of money on a facial mist, maybe when one day I treat myself to a kit of Omorovicza products.

    As for Sissi movies, I remembered they were popular in Poland too 🙂 x

    • Yes, I got that one as a gift with purchase, I don’t think I would splurge on a face mist as well.

  • I love this face mist and Omorovicza products, in general! Their Omoressence is one of my favourite discoveries this year so far xx

    • I only tried two, that one and the clay mask, that I love. It seems to be an amazing brand, but really pricey.

  • Denise

    Loved the Queen of Hungary Face Mist and the video – made me hungry, so many amazing sweets and dishes! I also thought of Sissi as soon as read „Queen of Hungary“. I have been watching Sissi since I was twelve – and I simply still love it! It seems to be a good product, I would like to try it, for the not overly hydration, that’s the way I like hydration. Nice that you’ve been going to the south of France since 12, the place looks amazing! I really liked the video, you look lovely! Hope you have a great week!

    • I had a fun time. I mean, how could you not, eating and going to the beach?

  • A few Omorovicza products have been on my beauty wish list but I haven’t gotten around to purchasing them yet. This is pretty pricey for a facial mist. It might be worth it only if it provided more transformational results.

    • I think that they do a lot of great products, but for me, a face mist just isn’t worth the splurge. I will look into more of the brand though, once I made a bigger dent in my stash.

  • I know people who swear by it and others who thing it’s just ok and nice but too expensive. I’ve got the Tatcha mist on the way to me right now. I used it once at Sephora and I really liked it. It works great pre-foundation.

    This little mist sounds amazing, until I saw the price! I don’t think I could justify purchasing it myself, although I sure wouldn’t mind it as a gift. 🙂 It does sound very unusual, and I like the concept behind it – it’s quite original! 🙂 <3 The smell seems lovely and refreshing, also. I don't have many mists myself, I prefer heavier perfume concentrations – I'm one of those annoying people that you can smell before you see them, haha (cause of perfume, of course!!). 😀 x x

  • Holy cow, in the words of Kathleen Light ‚dassss expensive!‘. LOL! I have never really got into face spritz, well only recently got into thermal water so thankfully I don’t feel the need to try this (yet).

  • This mist sounds refreshing, but the price is definitely a deterrent for me as well.

  • Sounds pretty good! But yeah, expensive…
