Omorovicza Hydra Melting Cleanser

I must admit that I'm a bit confused by the Omorovicza Hydra Melting Cleanser: it's not a terrible product, but I'm not sure I really like. And I am sure that at $110 I do not think that it is worth the price.

The Hydra Melting Cleanser is marketed as a 'triple-phase cleanser' that 'removes all makeup and impurities'. In the jar it is a gel-like consistency (it reminds me of something like the Belif Aqua Bomb in its appearance, only a bit thicker). It purports to then turn into an oil once in contact with the skin, but on me at least this never happens. So rather than effortlessly rubbing an oil onto my skin to remove makeup, I find myself trying to spread a not-so-viscous gel all over my face. Once you add water to emulsify the gel it does turn into a milk that washes off the skin easily and does seem to remove makeup effectively. But the whole experience is decidedly less than pleasant, and for $110 I want it to feel like baby kittens are rubbing my face with their soft paws.

Ultimately, I much prefer a cleansing oil (such as MAC Cleanse Off Oil, The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil, or Tatcha Camellia Cleansing Oil) to the Hydra Melting Cleanser. But if you are not a fan of cleansing oils and instead prefer balms, perhaps you will have more luck with this one. I can say that it doesn't feel stripping on the skin (great if you are prone to dryness) and doesn't leave a residue on the skin. But for the price, I'd much rather stick with a less expensive option that gets the job done more effectively.

The Omorovicza Hydra Cleansing Balm is available at Sephora for $110. Or you can order it off of some British websites for a lower price—it's around $78 on CultBeauty (the VAT comes off once the item is in your cart and you list a U.S. shipping address, making the price even lower than listed). You'll have to wait longer to get your item, but they do free shipping and often have coupon codes available.
