While I still consider myself a young lass, I’ve lately been taking an extra interest in providing my skin with the nourishment it needs to fight wrinkles and other signs of aging. Dr. Hauschka is considered to be one of the best in skincare products, and their prices certainly reflect that! Call me cheap, but it pains me to spend more than $20 on most beauty products. But, one must make sacrifices! If you don’t sacrifice some money, your skin will end up sacrificing much more!
I am a huge fan of rose. I love the scent, have worn tea rose perfume for years, and clamber after any opportunity I can get to permeate my person with the smell. So, when I decided to look into Dr. Hauschka’s skincare products, I was pleased to find that he offers a rose-scented cream. Sign me up!
Though my inner miser snarled a few times, I ignored the $27.96 price tag and ordered a 1 oz. tube of Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream. It had great reviews, and I appreciated that it wasn’t full of chemicals or unnecessary additives.
The day came when it arrived. While I knew I’d just ordered a 1 oz. tube, I was still horrified by how light and small it felt clutched in my hand. This wouldn’t last me two weeks, I thought. Wrong.
It’s been over a month and I still have plenty left. This cream goes a long way because it’s so thick and luxurious. I was rather surprised that it’s considered to be a day cream (and marveled at what Dr. Hauschka’s night cream must be like), because this stuff is thick and leaves a sheen on your face for at least 20 minutes. It does sink in, but not as rapidly as most moisturizers I have used in the past. I generally apply it well before I intend on doing my makeup, which gives it time to absorb into my skin.
It has a really delicate, sweet smell of rose, but the smell doesn’t linger. Those who would rather not smell like they’ve been rolling in rose bushes will be pleased that the smell wears off after only a few minutes.
Since using this cream, I have noticed that my skin feels smoother and seems plumper. I have used it as both a day and night cream; it’s fairly versatile and suits both needs for me. I have noticed a softening of minor lines under my eyes, which is a great comfort to me since these have just sprung up in the past several months and had me freaking out for the first couple of weeks. I totally believe I can get rid of the little suckers, though, and hope that Dr. Hauschka’s Day Cream Light will assist in that endeavor!
I recommend this cream if you like natural products, a thicker consistency, and want something that could work as both a day and night cream. I plan on buying more in the future, though I am quite curious about Dr. Hauschka’s other products! We’ll see! I'm not thrilled with the price tag considering the amount you get, but that may be the price one pays for superior ingredients that aren't manufactured in a lab.
