My mum has always raved about Dr Hauschka and after buying me a selection recently, I can see why and I have started to 'treat' myself and I am enjoying trying different items in their product range. One that I have recently brought is the Pure Care Cover Stick.
The product is available in three different shades, 01 - Natural, 02 - Beige and 03 - Sand, due to my skin tone, I choose beige and found this to be a really good match,
*Price & Availability:*
Not many places stock Dr Hauschka, my mum buys it from John Lewis online, what I like about John Lewis is they offer a wide variety of delivery options (evenings, next days, specific days and Saturdays all for reasonable prices). You can also buy online from Dr Hauschka direct at http://www.drhauschka.co.uk where delivery is free if you spend over £40 but the delivery options are not as flexible.
The cover sticks cost around £16.95 for a 2g tube.
What I like about this brand is that they use completely natural ingredients and do not test on any animals. Also, they boast that where possible, they try and obtain most of their ingredients from certified biodynamic and organic sources.
*How to use:*
The product comes in a stick format (like a lipstick). To use, simple apply over the spot at the first sign of a breakout, rub and blend in. I then apply my normal foundation over the top. The concealer blended in quite easily and did not look too orangey or look like I had obviously applied something first.
It was really easy to apply and did not require too much 'rubbing' to blend into my skin, I also found that I did not have to apply too much to get adequate coverage.
Since the birth of my daughter, I seem to have more outbreaks of spots than I did as a teenager. This product boasts that it contains product which will help clear up the spot as well as concealing it. I found that it was quite a good concealer, in the past I have found other concealers have dries out my skin yet this was quite the opposite, my skin around the spots did not look dry by the end of the day like it did with other brands. Apparently it contains natural waxes which help prevent dryness.
It contains anti bacterial properties which are meant to help clarify the skin, with regards to my spots, they do appear to clear up quicker than normal.
I love the fact that this is quite a small product and fits nicely into my handbag, I have a tendency to touch my face a lot while working so most of my foundation ends up on my hands yet with this, I can touch up during the day, having said that, this does tend to stay on my face longer than other concealers.
I have found that sometimes I have quite sensitive skin on my face yet I did not experience any reactions or problems with using this.
Although this product is expensive compared to similar products on the market, I have found this to be one of the best performers with regards to both covering and clearing up my spots and I would recommend. I have been using for around a month now and I Still have loads left.
5 out of 5 stars from me
