It’s baaaack, the dreadful summertime oily skin. I’ve been blessed or cursed, depending on how you look at it, with oily skin especially in the summer. Mother had skin so dry she slathered on baby oil, dad had skin so oily he was constantly wiping it off and mine is like his in the summer as well. Those of you who have oily skin know what a difficult time we have trying to keep it under control or at least somewhat manageable and my summertime go-to for my oily skin are these two Omorovicza products. Since I started using the Cleansing Foam and the Balancing Moisturizer my skin is significantly less oily throughout the day.

The Omorovicza line is inspired by the healing powers of the famous Hungarian thermal baths and they have created a patented mineral delivery system for their products to be absorbed by the epidermis and dermis in ways that other products cannot. Husband and wife founders, Margaret and Stephen de Heinrich de Omorovicza worked with Nobel prize winning Hungarian laboratory of Dermatology and Allergology at the Albert St George University. In doing so, they discovered the ability of minerals to treat a wide range of ailments.

Typically cleansing foams can be rather harsh and stripping the skin of necessary moisture (different than removing oil) on the face, but this isn’t drying at all. My skin just feels remarkably clean. The foam doesn’t foam up like typical foam cleansers, but works well to clean and the fresh scent makes me imagine I am relaxing at a thermal bath spa. The Cleansing Foam doesn’t contain any harmful sulfates, but it does contain copper gluconate to detoxify and regulate the production of sebum. The white lupin energizes and revitalizes the skin while the apple pectin restores suppleness and hydrates.

The Balancing Moisturizer is a lightweight lotion that keeps my skin hydrated and supple, but not oily feeling. It absorbs into the skin quickly and my excess sebum is under control, and my makeup goes over it very smoothly. It has pineapple and rosemary extracts to reduce pore size and clear dead skin cells enzymatically. Apple pectin is in this as well for suppleness and hydration and ruby crystal diffuses the appearance of fine lines.

Right now, Omorovicza is offering 10% off the cleanser with code     faboverforty_40    This is in effect until June 5th, 2012
