Last year I was lucky enough to experience one of Omorovicza’s incredible facials, when Harvey Nichols Edinburgh invited me for an afternoon of relaxation. Apart from glowing skin, I walked away with a skincare wish-list as long as my arm, and right up at the top was the Queen of Hungary Mist.
In addition to a name that makes me feel akin to Marie Antoinette (or perhaps Empress Elizabeth of Austria aka Queen of Hungary), the Facial Mist is just a study in luxurious perfection. As if I didn’t love the mist enough, Omorovicza have just released this new limited edition bottle, and it’s more than fair to say that I’m in love!
The glass bottle feels thick and sturdy to hold, and the designs which swirl round it are just beautiful. I don’t think it could look more summer-appropriate, and I’m just aching to throw it into a beach bag! As well as looking the part – my Queen of Hungary Mist is a real skin-saver. Last week we had some record temperatures, and a quick spritz of the mist kept me looking and feeling fresh all day, despite my trampling around three different towns and cities.
The mist is super-fine, and wouldn’t mess the most intricate of makeup looks. Instead, it just delivers the most perfect, cooling spritz that feels absolutely heavenly to apply. Scented with neroli and rose, a quick application is a super quick way to both relax and freshen skin. As well as using it as a way to cool down, the Queen of Hungary Mist can also be used as a gentle toner. It’s wonderful to use if your skin is slightly dry or sensitised, and I love a quick mist prior to applying a sheet mask.
