I have combo skin, and this product eventually worked wonders on my skin; it just took a little time. The first use made my skin unhappy, and I thought that would be the case all the time. But after I used it more, it started morphing my skin into being more beautiful and taking my blemishes away. I still can't believe it, but it's true.

I have combination skin (pretty oily t-zone) but I ordered this product about a month ago and have been so happy with it. It cleans your face and leaves a soft silky non-oily finish when you rinse off.

It is very fatty and leaves a soft residue on the skin that comes off with heat. I leave it on my skin to fill in fine lines and make my skin extra soft. A little goes a long way. One jar lasts around six months. You get used to the smell. It is very different and exceptional.

I think this would be great for combination skin. It will feel very rich at first but it rinses off completely and it isnt drying and does not leave an oily residue. Try it!

Yes, you must rinse, as it contains some minerals that are like black flecks. Also it would be too oily to leave on the skin. A pea sized amount can be warmed between your fingers and spread over the face, then rinse with a washcloth (it will not rinse properly without using a cloth of some kind).

I use a nickel sized amount and apply it to my damp face. I do gentle circles all over my face for about a minute and then use my Clairsonic for another minute. I use a hot wet washcloth to steam and wipe off the balm. It won't rinse off if you just try to splash water on your face.

Yes, rinse with warm water. You should use a wash cloth to remove the product from your face. Personally, I use paper towels.This way you have a new one each time and you don't have to worry about any dirt accumulating on a hand towel or wash cloth.

You use this like you would a cleansing oil. Take some in the palms of your hands and emulsify it, then apply it to your face and eyes in circular motions to remove your makeup. I then remove it using a warm washcloth.

the clarisonic irritates my skin so i use this with a wash cloth. I run it under hot water and then apply it to my face for a few seconds and then wipe clean. My hands are greasy after applying it so i rinse them with soap before i use the wash cloth but when i wipe my face clean it does not feel greasy.

I used it with my Clairisonic, but then had to follow with a washcloth in order to feel that the product was removed from the skin adequately.

Only a warm cloth. It doesn't get foamy it just goes on like a cream. This really does penetrate and cleans pores.

no, this is a balm that turns to oil, it won't foam or anything. It's not even meant to be used on a wet face- applied to dry skin only then wiped off with a warm damp cloth.

this is my first jar and after two weeks daily use (once a day) i have used just under a fourth of it. I expect to have to buy it every other month or so and i wish it didn't cost so much but I will pay for something that is actually effective. I have spent a lot of money on products over the years that did not do what they claimed so something that produces results on my skin is worth it to me. And I am extremely happy I found this product.

Only a couple of Sephora stores carry this line. If you want tons of free samples call the Omorovicza counter at Bergdorf's. They're fabulous and will send whatever u want. I loved this balm from the first moment I tried it - at Bergdorf.

Ingredients listed different than Omorovicza website
Why are the ingredients listed on this site different than the ingredients listed on the Omorovicza site? Sephora says it's limited edition, so is it a different formulation than the original? I'm confused.

This is the same formulation as on the Omorovicza website. Sephora has not listed all the ingredients for some reason. Note that they don't even list moor mud as an ingredient lol but it's in there. The Euro and US ingredients for all the products are the same.

There may be a difference between the U.S. version and what is sold in Europe. If an ingredient is not FDA-approved, a suitable substitute must put in its place without compromising the product's integrity. The product would not be allowed to sell otherwise.

I know it would be okay if this product were to be used twice a day (morning and night) but it really comes down to your own skin type. You might want to use it less if you have oily skin (even though it does work well with oily skin) and use it more often with dry skin, but that's just my own opinion from what I have observed.

I would save this for nighttime use to remove your face makeup at night as it leaves a oil residue on your face after you tissue/rinse it off.
