Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist Limited Edition


It’s been a stressful couple of weeks. (Don’t ask. But it involved a website, and Mercury retrograde. If that means anything to you, you’ll know exactly where we’re coming from.) Happily, this has just about saved our bacon: a gorgeous, star-bedecked limited edition of Omorovicza’s much-loved facial mist. To be honest, we’re not massive fans of them usually – a bit of a faff – but the sense-soothing benefits of this have calmed us right down. Probably something to do with the blend of orange flower and rose waters (it also has a touch of sage leaf water), which feel instantly calming to the senses.

This ‘cult’ product is based on one of the world’s first recognised skincare products, the original Queen of Hungary water, created for (duh) The Queen of Hungary, centuries ago. Naturally, the notion’s been somewhat updated for the 21st Century, but it still blends Hungary’s famously mineral-rich healing waters with acerola fruit extract, apple pectin and other skincare actives.

Just mist onto face when skin’s feeling a bit dry.

Or you feel like sobbing.

Or maybe sticking pins in a voodoo doll of a techie.

Whatever: it’s a godsend.
