I try to use natural beauty products whenever possible. Organic and cruelty free; even better. But I learned that you can’t have it all. So I try to have a good balance in my beauty-closet.
Since years one of my most used brands has been Dr.Hauschka for facial care. It was the first natural facial product I bought more than 15 years ago.
Dr.Hauschka stands proudly by the products they sell, knowing that their purity and efficacy are helping people to nurture their health and beauty as well as inspiring them to recognize and foster beauty and well-being in others.
The majority of ingredients of the natural skin care products are grown biodynamically and organically, or are ethically wild-harvested. Only natural botanical preservatives (without chemical additives), coupled with intelligent packaging to keep products fresh, are used.
Not a single ingredient in any product comes from an organization involved in animal testing.(read more about the ingredients: here)
Recently a make-up artist introduced to me the ‚Regenerating line‚ backstage of a fashion show and developed a new ‚daily care plan‚ for me.
I have been using my new products for weeks now and I so can tell the difference! Here comes my (from now on, not so secret anymore) list of facial products, I am currently using after my morning shower with Blackthorn Body Wash, which truly is a ‚pep up‘:
- Cleansing Cream in the morning
- Facial Toner (can be used to refresh skin during daytime over make-up too)
- Regenerating Day Cream or if I wish a lighter undercoat for make-up or sunscreen Quince Day Cream
Finally the highlight: Regenerating Eye Cream! It not only absorbs quickly and therefor can be applied perfectly before make-up, but the promise of supporting its processes of self-renewal really, really works. What I do like too is the fact that the eye-cream comes in a great dispenser. As you only need such a little amount for your eye area, it often made me really angry when using eye-cream tubes, which you have to squeeze. No chance to squeeze out a size of a seed.
Luckily I already have my Travel Box prepared for the next holidays in Greece, which includes cute mini-sizes of all products in a little metal tin. It includes Cleansing Cream, Cleansing Milk, Facial Toner, Moisturizing Mask, Rose Day Cream and Quince Day Cream.
Next product on my list-to-buy after the holidays, to complete my little anti-aging series: Intensive Treatment 04, which promises to visibly refine lines, enhance the skin’s tone and elasticity, and helps visibly smooth wrinkles. We will see! A good reason to visit my trusted Natural Care Store in the first district on Wollzeile: STAUDIGL, when I arrive back home.
