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!

It says it has a scent of orange blossoms. To me it smelled really earthy - maybe more like ashes??? Although, I didn't find it unbearable. If perfumey scent bother you, this should be fine. I suggest you go to the store and see if you can get a sample so you can spot check it before buying an entire jar of it.

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.

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.

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.

Just enough time to remove makeup, like 30 seconds- 1 min maybe a bit more thoroughly focused on the eye area if you're wearing a lot of makeup

a minute or two in circular motions with your finger tips and then gently wipe away with a warm damp towel. You will feel a little oiliness left behind but I like it since it adds a little hydration during winter months.

I LOVE THIS STUFF! Omorovicza has totally transformed my skin. And I love how quick, simple & neat (aka. no water splashing all over the place :) this cleanser is. Used nightly, this balm works efficiently within a couple of minutes - just long enough to apply, rub all around - and then remove with 2 rounds of washcloth wipe-off … or … indulge as long as you like.

You can use it both morning and night, but I only recommend using it before bed. It is a thick product and leaves your face very moisturized and dewy for night, not necessarily for day.

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.

It removed all my makeup and made my face feel clean. It does make your face very moisturized because the product itself is very oily. I don't think you would need to use a second cleanser, unless you found it too moisturizing, but I did need a wash cloth to make sure the product was completely off my face.

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.

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.
