Makeup4all Recommends: Omorovicza Omoressence

Long time readers will know that I am the biggest fan of Omorovicza, it is definitely one of my favourite brands.

And today I want to tell you about my personal hero product from them – Omoroessence.

You may think why on Earth would you need an extra step for £68? But hear me out.

The brand describe it as a product which is “halfway between a toner and a serum”, and I would agree. It is like that extra layer that instantly makes your skin feeling and looking plump and radiant. Even the driest skin feels soothed and soft, it is, quite frankly, a miracle in a bottle.

And what a bottle it is! A beautiful

Makeup4all Recommends: OMOROVICZA Illuminating Moisturiser

Omorovicza is as luxurious as it gets. I am a big fan of the brand in general, and especially of this cream.

I discovered it two winters ago when nothing would help my skin at all. Then I’ve decided to try a little sachet I was given with one of my purchases, and couldn’t believe what happened. My skin was literally transformed. From dull and extremely dry skin, with some rough patches, it was the “dream skin”.

I have now used up two bottles of this, and with it being priced at £87, it definitely says how much I rate it. It may be the best moisturiser I have ever used.

It comes in a glass bottle with a pump which is chic and hygienic. The formula is not heavy but yet very effective (vitamin C and E, Hungarian Thermal Water, among other things). I am also a fan of the herbal scent, it is not heavy or heady but just

Favourite Beauty Products of 2019

It is always exciting to share about the favourite beauty products of the whole year, and I have been doing so for a while, here is a look back to 2018.

When I was thinking about the favourite beauty products of 2019, I had to look back at:

And, although I had an idea of of the products I wanted to include this made it even easier. Now, most of the products I have written in details about, so I will link to those posts.

1 Darphin Intral Environmental Lightweight Shield SPF 50, ( Space NK, John Lewis ) probably the best city spf I’ve ever used. Lightweight and slightly tinted, it is not greasy or oily at all, gives you that healthy glow and protects the skin. Darphin is one of my favourite beauty brands in general, and this product is not an exception.

2. Annick Goutal Rose Pompon Perfume,from Harrods and Bergdorf. It has the notes of Bulgarian rose essence, taïf rose, peony, blackcurrent, rasberry, pink pepper, woody cedar, patchouli and white musk. And it is just my dream scent, I never want to be without it, ever.

3. Rose Candles (here and here).

You must be shocked, right? Rose candles and I… Linked above you can see a few that I’ve enjoyed the most this year. Need MORE!

4. Trish McEvoy Instant Eye Lift Concealer (review and swatches).

Brilliant product: not heavy, doesn’t sit in the fine lines, makes you look fresh and not so tired. Isn’t it what we all want?

5. The Balm Balm Desert, £17.50 here

Not only it has been featured in 2018 but also in 2017, it is my hands down, favourite cheek product, I just use a big fluffy brush to give my face some definition and to warm it up. Balm Desert is in the middle.

6. Rouge Bunny Rouge Blush

Christmas Gift Guide 2019: Luxury Beauty

I love writing Christmas gift guides but especially the luxury ones, because when else other than Christmas (and your Birthday, perhaps), you can get away with asking for something high-end? Or, maybe, getting a real treat for your loved ones or even for yourself?

So here are my top picks when it comes to luxury beauty products. And I’ve included only the things which I’ve tried myself and loved, or the things that I think deserve attention.

And, yes, I am aware that it is only October but I know a lot of people who like to plan in advance.

1. Liberty London Advert, £215 from the 16th of October.

This is the ultimate beauty gift, in my opinion. My husband very kindly got it for me last Christmas, and it was one of the best gifts ever. It is worth £600 so £215 is a bargain, if I dare say so.

Alternative:  I have posted a lot of other Advent Beauty Calendars on my Facebook page.

2. Goutal Perfumes, £110/£132 for 100 ml from Liberty, Escentual, Harrods.

There is something so special about the Goutal Paris perfumes (the brand was called Annick Goutal previously). The scents are exquisite and sophisticated, the bottles are gorgeous and elegant. If money was not an option I would love to have a whole wardrobe of their beautiful fragrances. But, as for now, I am really enjoying Rose Pompon. Also worth mentioning that the brand recently released alcohol free scents.

Alternative:  Frederic Malle, Le Labo, Jo Malone, Jo Loves.

3. Foreo Gadgets, £119 for a small one or £169 for a big version from Cult Beauty and Nordstrom.

Brilliant Swedish brand which offers a big variety of facial cleansing and massaging devices, toothbrushes and more. Not only the design is Scandi-chic,  the gadgets  last forever (here, here, here are mine) but they also are very effective.

4. Omorovicza Skincare Sets Replenish & Restore Collection shown, £95 from Cult Beauty

It’s not a secret that am a big fan of Omorovicza, and, obviously, had to include their sets in the guide. My skin loves it, and that justifies the price tag for me. The set I’ve chosen includes: Miracle Facial Oil (30ml) Rejuvenating Night Cream (15ml), and Omoressence (50ml) .

Alternatives: 111skin, Anne Semonin. Both brands with a hefty price tags which I’ve tried some products from, and loved.

5.  Luxury Hair Care:  Leonor Greyl, Long Hair Volume Set, €120 from

Cult Beauty and Nordstrom.

I love me a luxury hair care products, and Leonor Greyl is as good, as it gets. Everything I’ve tried from the brand was exceptional quality:

Spring 2019 Beauty and Lifestyle Favourites

I enjoyed sharing about the things that I loved in  Winter,   and now it is July and I did not share about my Spring favourites yet.

I’ve actually been strict with myself and allowed only a few products [makeup, beauty, lifestyle] so these are truly creme de la creme, for me.

Omorovicza Omoressence (from   Cult BeautyNet a Porter,Neiman MarcusNordstrom)

This is probably my favourite product of them all, and I promise to write about it in more details because, after all, why would you need an extra step in your skincare routine which is £65 on top of it all. But it truly transformed my skincare routine. Think of all those things beauty brands promise in their press releases. It is all that: healthy glow, hydrated skin which is soft and smooth. I think my skin loves the Hungarian thermal water and the urea. And did I mention the frosted luxurious bottle?

NURSE JAMIE Miracle Base Beauty Oil, £120 from Cult Beauty and Nordstrom

I’ve had a small bottle of this with one of my orders and did not expect to love it as much as I do. One of the best face oils I have ever used. Again, think of all those things we want our beauty products to do. Glowing complexion? Nourished and silky skin?
