If you have been following me for some time, you might know I am a fan of Masks and they are an important part of my weekly or sometimes twice in a week skincare routine. And if you are a new reader, then I want to mention that I had the view that masks do not do good enough to be used every other day or on the weekends, my views were changed since I have become a regular with the masks. I mask and sometimes multi-mask depending on my skin’s needs. The more I am regular, the better my skin behaves. I reviewed Omorovicza Midnight Radiance Mask here a few weeks back which is a nice escape for me when I am in no mood for my multiple step skincare routines. I am going to review Omorovicza Ultramoor Mud Mask which I highly recommend if you have not yet seen the results from any face mask yet.
Omorovicza Ultramoor Mud Mask is described to transform skin’s appearance in just a few minutes with this flash-lifting anti-aging mask. It provides gentle exfoliation and deep pore cleansing treatment to leave the facial contour more sharply defined and the complexion brighter. It is great for anti-aging, blemish-prone skin, and dull skin. It is suitable the most for oily, combination and normal skin types.
The packaging of the mask is in a heavy glass frosted jar. I have been using this mask once a week and the results have been great. I apply this mask on my face and neck avoiding the eye area. I leave it on for 10 minutes and then remove with warm water. My skin feels clean, soft, and bright. I do not feel any dryness or irritation after using this mask. I see the pore size is reduced, and the skin is firm and smooth. With regular use, my breakouts have been under control and my skin looks healthy and lifted, I wouldn’t comment much on the lifting but I feel the skin is firm.
The look of this mask and the texture does feel like the Deep Cleansing mask from the brand which I reviewed a few months back, linked here. The Deep Cleansing Mask clears congested pores and draws out impurities. The mask brightens skin with a glowing complexion and re-textures the epidermis. The Ultramoor Mud Mask, is a fast-acting anti-aging mask which transforms skin within minutes, the treatment plumps fine lines and tightens collagen fibers. Dead skin cells are eliminated for a brighter and more toned complexion. The Deep Cleansing Mask is suitable for dry, oily, combination and normal skin types and the Ultramoor Mud Mask is suitable for normal and oily skin. Both masks contain Hungarian Moor Mud which is extracted from Lake Héviz in Hungary, the mud is enriched with calcium and magnesium carbonates which detoxify and purify the skin.
This mask has become a favorite for my combination skin which is prone to congestion and also a great pick-me-up during the week to give an extra boost to the skin. I would highly recommend you to check this mask for oily, combination, and normal skin types, you will see the difference even after the first use.

Kopari Beauty is not new anymore and whoever I have talked to and has used their products, they are a fan. And personally, I am a big fan of coconut, I love eating coconut (both mature and soft jelly-like young coconut fruit), drinking coconut (coconut water is one of my all-time favorites), applying coconut oil on the skin and hair. This love started when I was little and in India, there was not a single time when my mom did not put coconut oil in my hair after washing and drying the hair, that was like a must-have and a part of the routine, as in most Indian households with kids. Even to moisturize the driest skin, coconut oil was always the answer. From north India, I went to South India where I could get fresh coconut juice and the fruit on every corner of the street. It was my best alternative to all the soft drinks and sometimes I could skip the water and drink it to freshen up. All these things aside, there are numerous benefits of coconut and its derivatives, so the main point here is coconut is a real favorite of mine and when there is a brand which is all about coconuts, then the love was obviously natural to happen.
Kopari Beauty products have 100% pure organic coconut oil, sourced from the Philippines. The products do not contain sulfates, parabens, GMOs, and toxins. The right blend of pure ingredients with cutting-edge chemistry is used to enhance benefits of coconut oil. I have been using Kopari Coconut Crush Scrub and Kopari Coconut Melt since last month and they have become my favorites, they are keeping my dry flaky and hence itchy winter skin on the body at bay.
Kopari Coconut Crush Scrub
Kopari Coconut Crush Scrub is described as a coconut oil-infused brown sugar scrub that polishes, exfoliates, and hydrates dry skin for a gorgeous glow. It is the best solution for dryness, dullness, uneven skin tone, and uneven texture. This is one-of-a-kind Coconut Crush Scrub is infused with a uniquely delicious blend of coconut oil, crushed Tahitian coconut shells, and brown sugar to hydrate and buff dry, dull skin for a silky smooth, lit-from-within glow. The complexion is left looking polished, restored, and radiant with a sweet, milky coconut scent to transport you to the tropics.
I use it on my dry skin as an exfoliator before turning on the shower, then I massage it gently in circular motions to buff away the dry skin. Then I rinse with warm water and pat dry my skin. The results are soft, radiant, clear, and healthy skin. I follow with the body lotion or moisturizer of my choice or with Kopari Coconut Melt and I think the pair works very well together.
Kopari Coconut Melt
Kopari Coconut Melt is described as a premium, multitasking organic coconut oil that hydrates and casts a dewy glow from head to toe. It is suitable for most of the skin types including sensitive skins. It is the best solution for dryness, redness, dullness, and uneven texture of skin. Coconut Melt is comprised of 100 percent pure, organic, and unrefined coconut oil that melts on contact to provide rich hydration from head to toe. Ideal for all hair and skin types, including dry skin, eczema-prone skin, and chemically-treated hair, this lavish oil is loaded with fatty acids to seal in moisture and lauric acid to combat inflammation. This can be used as a Makeup remover, Lip balm, Deepest conditioning hair mask, Bath boost, Super shave oil, Massage oil, Belly beauty balm, and Baby butter.
I melt a dollop in my hands by rubbing the palms together to warm up the oil, I do follow the traditional Indian way to keep the jar in hot water and it melts so nicely. Then I lather it generously all over the body as a moisturizer. Apart from that, I have used it to remove my makeup, it works great even for the waterproof makeup, coconut melt on the scars is an old remedy and it works, pre-shampoo treatment for hair, even on my kid’s dry winter skin for massaging and as a moisturizer for the body. It has come as a winner in all the ways I have used it till now. It melts when the temperature is high and solidifies again into the white soft texture when the temperature is low.
Overall, both these products are great for anyone looking to combat the dry winter skin. As there is no residue and it hydrates the skin without any oiliness, it will be great to use year around. These both are keepers for me and I would love to repurchase them once these jars get over. Kopari Coconut Crush Scrub and Kopari Coconut Melt are available in Sephora Canada.
