Organic Skincare: Dr. Hauschka Review (Rose Day Cream & Lip Balm)

Hello girls!

How was your weekend?
My Sunday was lovely, and I'm not going to tell you anything else on the subject now, because I'm preparing a vlog & a blog post about it! ;)
Hopefully I'll manage to edit everything by tomorrow evening...tomorrow morning I have to wake up sooo early, I'm scared to even think about it!
I'll be working from 5:45 a.m. till 9.00 a.m. UGHHHH
I don't even have the right words to express my feelings about it!
I'll have to wake up at 5.00 a.m. - at this early hour, even the roosters are still sleeping!!!
Fortunately, this horrific work schedule happens only once a year, so I'll just have to bear with it- it'll pass too- like everything else does!
At least today I'm free, and then again, after tomorrow, I'll be free until are some comforting thoughts...

Anyways, let's get back ON TOPIC!
Today I have a review of dr. Hauschka Organic Skincare line.
I've done a video where talking about my experience with this brand...I have tried quite a few products from dr. Hauschka, but in this review, I'm more concentrated on reviewing the famous dr.Hauschka "Rose Day Cream" and a Lip Balm (in a jar), the two products that I'm currently using from the brand.

You can watch my review video here:

More about dr.Hauschka philosphy:

Inspired by a holistic approach to skin care , the complete line of dr. Hauschka Skin Care preparations is designed to bring harmony, balance and rhytm to the skin. Rather than masking or covering up skin conditions, dr. Hauschka products work with the skin, treating it as an integral part of the human being.
These holistic preparations meet all skin needs, addressing specific conditions rather than skin types because skin has the ability to change- to become balanced and harmonious.

Since 1967, WALA Heilmittel, the manufacturer of dr. Hauschka Skin Care, has produced pure, therapeutic and luxurious skin care. Carefully selected ingredients, found in nature, encourage and support the health of the skin. Their unique, environmentally sound processing strengthens and preserves the living essence of the plant ingredients.
Biodynamically grown plants carry more vitality than plants grown by other methods. The gardens at WALA Heilmittel have been biodynamic for more than 40 years.

Dr. Hauschka claims to have higher standards.
WALLA Heilmittel ensures that their growing, harvesting and processing is friendly to the environment.
They have never tested on animals and are opposed to this form of testing. 
Furthermore, no aspect of nature is damaged in any process, including animals and people.

The two products I'm currently loving from dr.Hauschka:

Rose Day Cream & Lip Balm

I like & recommend the Lip Balm!
It is very moisturizing & nourishing on my lips.
The little jar  contains 4.2 g/0.14 Oz of the product and my only complaint is that I usually finish this product in a two weeks' time!
It is a bit too expensive for such a small amount of the product :(
The ingredients:
Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Beeswax (Cera Alba), Arachis Hypogaea (Peanut) Oil, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Root Extract, Anthyllis Vulneraria Extract, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Hypericum Perforatum Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Silk (Serica) Powder, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Bran Extract, Lecithin, Fragrance (Parfum), Citronellol*, Geraniol*, Linalool*, Farnesol*, Benzyl Benzoate*, Citral*, Eugenol*, Benzyl Alcohol*, Benzyl Salicylate* *Component of natural essential oils
Suitable for all skin conditions

Intensive soothing care for dry, chapped lips, this rich balm promotes skin renewal as it moisturizes and softens. Lip Balm provides a translucent shine and helps visibly reduce fine lines around the mouth.

  • Calendula and St. John'swort extracts encourage renewal
  • Silk and anthyllis strengthen delicate lip tissue
  • Jojoba and wheat germ oils moisturize and protect
  • Natural botanical ingredients do not encourage dependency
It retails at $ 16.95
I usually buy it at my local pharmacy, or a herbalist store.
You can also purchase it here!

My lips get very dry, especially in winter time, so this lip balm is definitely my life, actually, lip saver!

dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream
Rose oil and wild Rose hip extract envelop the skin with a protective nurturing film. This rich, beautifully scented cream, with the extract of over 1,075 organic Rose petals in each tube, strengthens the skin and soothes redness and couperose conditions. The skin is encouraged to repair and restore itself as well as being calmed and smoothed.

  • This is a Dr.Hauschka 2011 Hero product. Hero products are all highly-revered, award-winning products that produce brilliant, beautiful skin.
  • Regenerates the epidermis (the top layer of the skin).
  • Helps the skin to maintain its moisture level.
I was really excited to try out this cream by dr. Hauschka, but I should have gone for the "light" version of it! My skin is oily/combination and this particular cream is meant for a very dry/sensitive/mature skin. It is a bit too oily for my skin type. I find that I can't use this product in summer, but just in a very cold winter days, or if I'm on a vacations in the mountains.
I can use it during the day only if I'm applying my Bare Minerals foundation on top- in this case it is a perfect base. Otherwise, if I'm applying just a regular foundation or a tinted moisturizer, it'll make my skin appear extremely shiny- ughhh!!!!
I also like to use it at night- even though from dr.Hauschka laboratories they advise not using the night cream, as our skin has the best ability to renew itself at night without the "help" of night creams!
( night, skin should be cleansed, then conditioned or toned. Night creams are not recommended and may actually be counterproductive in that they do not allow the skin to "breathe" and perform its natural metabolic functions during the night...)
Learn more about how to use this cream here!
30 ml of the product retails at £ 23.95

If you have a very dry & sensitive skin, this is going to be the perfect product for you, especially in the incoming cold winter weather!

The next time, I'm definitely getting the "light" version!

I hope this review helped you in some way, if you were interested in learning more about dr.Hauschka organic skincare philosophy.
