The Dr Hauschka range of moisturisers includes seven different day creams to cover all skin types. To be honest, I think that’s a bit extreme. However, since each of them is around £25 for 30ml, it’s worth testing them out to find the one that suits you and I was able to test several of them by buying the Picture Perfect Skin sampler tin. Even though this gives you the tiniest of 5g tubes that's actually plenty enough to work out if you like the creams or not.
Rose Day Cream is a light cream, slightly beige in colour, thick and rather tacky in texture and very very rosy which is not surprising since it has rose water, rose oil, rose petal wax, rose petal extracts and rosehip. Like I said, very very rosy.
For me this is just a bit too smelly to put on my face regularly and I find the scent can be almost eye-wateringly strong. However, I used it on long haul flights to and from the USA where the nasty dry conditions of the aircraft cabin were quite a challenge to my skin, and in that setting, the smell was much more bearable. The richness of the cream and the good spreadability meant I was able to keep my skin well protected despite the conditions.
There's a slightly acrid, sour, off-note to this rose which I notice the more I use it and I probably wouldn't buy it again unless I got a great deal on it. I was using an Aromatherapy Associated Rose face cream at the same time and found that a much nicer, lighter scented alternative.
The rose day cream by Dr Hauschka has been one of my favourite face creams for years. I was first put on to it by a facialist who recommended it for my sensitive skin and I loved how it made my skin feel so I have used it on and off now since then.
It isn't a cheap day cream but I buy it online for 22.95 which is a little bit cheaper than it is in beauty salons. Even though it is pricy it is cheaper than a lot of designer beauty creams and in my opinion it is a lot better than most of the ones that I have tried from Clarins, Estee Lauder etc. for sensitive skin.
The cream has extracts of over 1000 rose petals in each one so this goes some way to explaining the price. All the ingredients in it are natural and high quality and this shows when using it. It smells lovely as rose is one of my favourite smells and I like using this in conjunction with the facial toner for not only more powerful results but also for their scent.
I use a lot of creams but this is the one that I always go back to when my skin is flaring up and being more sensitive than normal as I know this one will calm it down and help it return to normal quickly.
The cream is really thick and actually when you first use it the cream can feel as though it is going to be too thick to actually use but as long as you follow the instructions of warming the cream between your palms for a few seconds then it is easier to apply. Using it with the facial toner makes it easier still to apply. Although it is thick is isn't greasy but it really moisturises well especially if you are suffering from dry skin. I only use it in winter because of how thick it is as I feel that it is too heavy for my skin in summer but it is great at protecting my skin from the elements such as wind and cold. There is a lighter version of the cream for summer but I am not as keen on that version as I am the original one.
For sensitive skin this works a treat as it really helps to take away the sensitivity and help to control it. When I am having a flare up putting this on will straight away calm my skin down and then after using it for a few days the sensitivity is much better and it doesn't flare up so much. It also helps with the redness that comes with sensitivity and really tones it down a lot.
This is a lovely cream but an expensive but reasonable price tag. It works well and really does help to moisturise and help control sensitivity without being greasy or causing outbreaks of spots.
Dr.Hauschka is a brand I had no experience of and had heard very little about when I was given this day cream as a gift last year and on first glance, I wasn't really sure if I would like it or not as the fact it was called 'Rose Day Cream' did sound like a product I would associate with older people. Also I am not a fan of floral scented perfumes, bath and body products etc and so I thought the fragrance would be something I wouldn't like either.
The main reason however, that I wasn't sure about using this day cream is because the skin on my face can sometimes be sensitive too and so I try to steer clear of scented moisturisers and creams for my face.
And so my Rose Day Cream sat in a box unused whilst I continued to use other creams and moisturisers.
It wasn't until I read some reviews of Dr.Hauschka products that I began to realise that this brand appeared to be quite well thought of and wasn't exactly cheap either! I also read a magazine article which named this Rose Day Cream as 'product of the year' and by now I was quite intrigued and decided I should really dig out my cream and give it a try.
This Rose day cream contains rose oil and wild Rose hip extract to envelop the skin with a protective nurturing film. Described as a rich, beautifully scented cream, with the extract of over 1,075 organic Rose petals in each tube, the cream is said to strengthen the skin and soothe redness and couperose conditions. Your skin is encouraged to repair and restore itself as well as being calmed and smoothed.
Now as I mentioned, my skin can sometimes be sensitive and in winter months in particular I experience dryness, tightness and have at time experienced some patchy redness too and so I like to use a good moisturising cream and have one or two which I really like and seem to suit my skin.
After reading up about my Rose Day Cream I went from not being very interested in using it, to extremely interested and as the cold months were approaching I decided a few weeks ago this would be a good time to try it out.
I was still unsure about using this cream when opening it as I could smell a delicate rose scent, but it wasn't a synthetic scent, it actually smells more natural than many floral products. Having said that however, it was still a floral scent and I wasn't really keen, I think I would prefer this cream to be unfragranced if I am honest.
Directions for use are to squeeze a small amount of Rose Day Cream onto the palm of your hand and warm it by pressing your hands together. This is to make it easier to apply and then you gently apply to your face, neck and earlobes.
Rose Day Cream can be used on all skin types in very cold weather and can also be mixed with a couple of drops of Translucent Bronze Concentratefor a tinted moisturiser. I have never done this personally but do use it a base before applying foundation or concealer.
When I first applied Rose Day Cream to my face I was still a little hesitant, thinking it may sting or irritate my skin, but it didn't. I was quite surprised to find it is actually quite soothing and my skin feels moisturised and hydrated immediately. I experience no tightness or dryness when using this cream and any sensitvity or redness is soothed and calmed after application.
It is very easily absorbed and my skin feels soft and moisturised all day after just one application each morning.
I really am fairly impressed at how soothing this cream is on my skin during the colder months, which is when I find I experience problems and I now wish I hadn't been put off using it at first by thinking it would not be suitable and didn't sound very appealing. It also is very good at helping my skin retain its moisture.
The only thing I don't like about Rose Day Cream is its fragrance. Some people may love it, but as I am not a fan of floral scents then this isn't really for me in that respect, but the benefits of using it do outweigh the fragrance and so I am happy to use it.
I also have another couple of creams and moisturisers I like to use too and so am not exactly sure if this is one I will buy for myself in the future, but I am happy to recommend it especially if you suffer with sensitivity or irritated skin, as it does soothe and calm redness and irritation from the first use.
I am not sure how much my 30ml tube of Rose Day Cream cost as it was a gift but have seen it priced at around £24 - £28 online, you can also purchase a trial size for £5 direct from the Dr.Hauschka website www.drhauschka.co.uk
2013 saw Rose Day Cream crowned the 'People's Hero' for the second year running after Dr.Hauschka consumers voted it their favourite product, so this shows there are a lot of happy consumers of this product. I am happy to recommend too, especially if you don't mind its 'rose' fragrance.
I have used a few of the products from this range and was interested to see whether this one would live up to the high standards of quality set by the brand.
The product comes in a rather unexciting orange and white plastic tube with white screw top lid. The product resembles toothpaste in the shape and design of the tube. I can't help feeling these products are designed to not be seen. The colours and letting are outdated. The design is simple and functional but that's about it. This doesn't especially bother me because I'd rather pay for a quality product than a gimmick designed to sell it. That said, this product looks so unappealing if it weren't for good recommendations I would have never purchased it in the first place. The tube is, however, easy to use and applicator hole is a good size. I like a plastic tube as it allows you to but it open and use the entire contents. I do think I would probably perfer a tub or jar overall though as they are just a little easier to use with slippery hands.
The cream is very lightweight and doesn't feel at all greasy upon application. It has a lovely cooling and soothing effect for your skin so would be perfect for hot sunny days or cold, dry winter nights. I find the cream quite thick which is ideal for me as I have slightly dry skin but if you suffer from oily skin you might want to find a lighter moisturiser. The cream is hydrating and leave your skin feeling soft and refreshed. It has a pleasant rose scented smell to it which a little added bonus when applying the cream. I probably wouldn't advise this cream for sensitive skin as it did tend to irritate sore of broken skin of my face and neck. I think for such an expensive product this is very disappointing as it limits when it can be used. I also didn't find it particularly effective in targeting my dry skin in the long term, another disappointment.
This is not a bad product. It just doesn't quite live up to the marketing which for a company that focus so much on quality is very disappointing. It costs roughly £20.00 for a 30ml tube which is relatively expensive, although inexpensive compared to some of the other products in this range. I can't whole heartedly recommend this because the price is too large and it didn't do everything it said it would for me.
Overall? A disappointing product given the price.
As a rule I generally tend to use a moisturiser in the mornings before applying my make up as from time to time I do get the odd dry patch of skin, however since being pregnant I have found that my regular moisturiser isn't really doing what it should so I decided to hunt around for something different. I had recently tried Dr Hauschka Bath oil and had read a review on their day cream which people really seemed to recommend so I decided to give it a go, I wasn't really too worried what the price was as I really did need to find a different product that suited me better.
I have only tried a few of the Dr Hauschka products so far but what I like about these is that they are all produced sustainably with the environment in mind, where possible biodynamic methods are used to produce their ingredients which means that all of the ingredients are farmed in a self sustaining unit. To product the Rose Day Cream Damask Roses are used in regions which as Afghanistan, Turkey and Iran, all of the farmers which grow the pink damask roses are taught biodynamic techniques in a way which is fair constant and long term.
Dr Hauschka Rose Day Cream comes in a white plastic tube, the packaging as with the bath oil is quite plain, but this didn't really matter the main thing is the product inside. The lid doubles up as the base and this too is made from a white plastic, the base of the tube is narrower and widens towards the top. Right at the top of the tube is the brand "Dr Hauschka" written in a sort of gold colour, and just beneath this are the words "Rose Day Cream" this is written in black writing and repeated in a second language. Right at the bottom of the tube is a bright orange band which goes all the way around the tube, the size of the tube is just beneath this again in black, this is all of the information on the front of the packaging, it is very basic but says all that you need to know. Once the lid has been removed there is a small hole for the cream to come out of, this is quite small but plenty big enough for the cream too be squeezed from.
Dr Hauskha Rose Day Cream looks just like any other face cream, it is of a reasonably thick consistency although not so thick that it is difficult to rub into your skin. With the name of this moisturiser being Rose Day Cream I was expecting a floral fragrance, although I did not know how strong this would be and I was not disappointed. When the lid was removed the fragrance was not obvious however when I smelt the cream it had a light sweet floral fragrance (which I am assuming is the rose) This was quite a sweet smell and not harsh at all which for me was ideal, the fragrance was also not over powering either, I cannot stand face creams that are strongly perfumed, also these can sometimes irritate my skin but this is a bit of trial and error, the fragrance of the Rose Day Cream was very light and fresh. I have since found out that Dr Hauschka Rose Day Cream is scented with the extract of over 1075 organic rose petals per tube, that's a lot of rose petals, I had no idea so many were used for just one tube. When I squeezed a small amount of the cream into my hand it didn't feel greasy at all but had a soft silky feel to it, I was particularly pleased about this as I find if my face cream is too greasy it tends to make my skin greasy after just a couple of days, whilst I do use slightly greasier cream on my face on the odd occasion if it is particularly dry, however as an everyday cream I prefer something much lighter and this certainly felt like it was going to be just right.
Before I purchased my tube of Rose Day Cream I did read up on it a little bit and I discovered that this cream contained not only rose oil but also wild rose hip extract which help to protect the skin. The moisturiser is ideal for sensitive skin despite the perfumed fragrance, it promises to strengthen the skin as well as sooth any redness caused by irritation, the natural ingredients are ideal for claming the skin allowing it to repair and restore itself as well as moisturising it, this sounded perfect for me if it worked. It is described as a rich cream which I have always associated with a greasy face cream, however as I have said this is not the case with this one, it is incredibly light. Whilst in theory the cream sounded perfect for me the main thing was whether it actually lived up to these promises. Other skin types which this cream is said to be good for is mature skin and those suffering with thread veins, the rose helps to maintain the skins top layer maintaining a good level of moisture, the rose wax and bees wax helps to fight against environmental influences.
Directions of Use
This can be applied just like any moisturisers, but the tube states that you should squeeze a small amount into your hands and warm it slightly by pressing your hands together, this is said to make it easier to apply, personally I do not really do this and I have no problems with the application of the cream. You then apply the moisturiser to your face, neck and earlobes, face and neck I can understand but I did find earlobes a little odd, I have never thought of moisturising my earlobes. I found the cream very easy to apply and it spread evenly over my skin, this was without warming it between my hands first.
Price & Availability
I purchased my tube of Dr Hauschka Rose Day Cream online from the actual website, you can buy two different sizes from here, one is just a trial which costs £3.50 and then there is the 30ml tube which costs £23.95. When I first saw the price I did think this was a bit expensive, however I wasn't having a lot of luck with my cheaper one so I decided to go for it and give it a go. I have since seen it available on other websites if you hunt around, the price does vary slightly depending on where you purchase it from, however it is not the cheapest cream I have come across and there is not a massive difference in price, well not that I have come across so far.
When my Rose Day Cream arrived I decided to give it a go the next morning when I applied my make up, I loved the fragrance of this, it was floral yet quite a soft smell it was not over powering, if it had of been I'm not sure I would have really wanted to use it. Whilst the cream is described as a rich cream I did not find it overly greasy at all, I only applied a small amount at a time as I find I cannot use a huge amount of cream before applying my make up, I like just enough to cover my face and keep it moisturised throughout the day. As I only used a small amount of the cream it soaked into my skin quickly and did not take too much rubbing in, again I was pleased at this as it meant I could apply my make up straight away and didn't have to sit and wait for it to soak in.
Once on my skin I did notice a difference in that my skin did not feel dry at all yet it didn't feel greasy either which I was pleased about, this has been the case every time have used the Rose Day Cream so far. Overall the cream has been a success, I have had no irritation from it and there is definitely an improvement in my skin in that it is less dry, it is certainly suiting my skin at the moment. I do not suffer from any skin conditions so I cannot really say how well it works with these but as a general moisturiser I was very impressed. For me the only disadvantage would probably be the price as it was a lot more expensive compared to my regular moisturiser, however as I wasn't getting on with this at all I didn't mind paying the extra money especially as it worked so well, also as I only use a small amount at a time the tube is lasting me a long while so I am finding it quite economical.
I would definitely recommend Dr Hauschka Rose Day Cream to anyone particularly if you suffer with sensitive skin or other skin conditions as this cream really does help to keep you skin in excellent condition and well moisturised without leaving it greasy, obviously that's what I have found, everyone's skin is different. This is certainly one I would consider using in the future despite the price.
This rose day cream is a constructive and protective day cream sold by Dr.Hauschka over 40 years. The special properties of this cream are that it protects normal, dry, sensitive and mature skin against premature aging. The rose oil and extracts of wild rose hips enhances the self-healing support of the skin. Shea butter and avocado prevents the dehydration of the skin. The fat and moisture content of the skin gets back into balance and the crème harmonize the skin functions. This cream is ideal for skin that tends to get red and for those with rosacea. This moisturizer also protects you from direct exposure to sunlight and extreme heat.
You need to apply this cream in the morning on a well cleansed face and neck. The day cream is also ideal for use as a base for makeup. The color of the cream is white. The smell is hard to describe but you can definitely smell roses. Now I am not a big fan of rose scents, but this fragrance is very subtle. The cream comes in a simple white roll-up metal tube with an orange border. On the tube you will find the brand and product name. The tube has a capacity of 30 ml. The tube is again packed in a cardboard box that looks just like the tube. Only found here on the side of product information and ingredients of the product. Also there is a very clearly written leaflet with.
I am very happy with this cream, since I have a quite sensitive skin, I have not been troubled by tightness or redness of the skin after use. At first I thought this tube wouldn't last for long but since you don't need much so can easily last a few months with this one. It's a wonderful cream that makes my skin look fresh and awake. It really makes my skin smooth and works wonders on patches of dry skin. You can buy the tube of 30ml for 24 pounds.
WHAT IS IT?
A daily use moisturiser by Dr. Hauschka, designed to be organic and effective for dry and very dry skin.
HOW DO YOU USE IT?
The same as any other moisturiser. It is best applied in a light circular motion in the mornings, as this is a day cream it's light and absorbs easily into your skin.
IS IT ANY GOOD?
It's not a bad moisturiser but you can do better for your money. The rose fragrance is beautiful and very sweet, but as this is evident only while applying it doesn't enhance the effectiveness of the product.
The cream is lightweight and not greasy, it feels soothing to apply to problematic dry areas of skin and absorbs quicker than most other day creams I have used. I don't think it is as hydrating as it claims to be and although my skin does feel slightly better moisturised after application this effect does not last for long and I will usually have to reapply a few hours later. Minor dry skin patches can be dealt with using the cream but any stubborn dry areas will not be helped at all, apart from the initial hydration you will experience.
It's a good product to use before applying your make up as it provides a smooth and even base for foundation, it absorbs within two minutes so will not hamper your morning routine. Once it has absorbed it leaves no stickiness or residue. A 30ml tube costs £20 and even though you only need a small amount per application so the tube lasts a long time, I still think this is expensive for the minor effects this moisturiser provides.
3 Dooyoo Stars.
Dr Hauscka was a favourite brand of a beauty columnist on one of the Sunday papers. She used to rave about their products as she had dry sensitive easily irritated skin and I really wanted to try this as it seemed to fit my needs and at a reasonable price .
However this brand wasn't widely available when I first started looking for this and it was before internet shopping became the norm , so I was delighted when I came across this in Space NK one day .
It is a cream I have used on and off for many years and I know for sure that if my skin becomes really sensitive I will be OK with the Rose Day Cream as it is very gentle and seems to calm and smooth my skin.
The packaging and Price
This is fairly simple and unusually I think for a moisturiser it comes in a simple white 30 ml tube which is £23.95.
This is a day moisturiser that is suitable for people with dry , mature or sensitive skin . They do a light version aimed at people with oily skin.
This isn't a heavy moisturiser but it is very nourishing and leaves skin feeling soft and hydrated. I sometimes develop flaky patches and my skin can feel tight and products I normally use will irritate my skin. However I do find that this is a cream I can turn to as it feels so gentle and soothing and seems to calm my skin down.
I love the smell of real roses, but find that rose scented products can smell horrendous either too heavy or smell cheap and synthetic, but this is lovely as it is a very delicate natural rose aroma which comes from extracting the scent from organic rose petals.
The product contains all natural ingredients which include rose oil and rose hip extract, shea butter , beeswax, avocado oil and a range of components taken from natural essential oils.
The company do not use any ingredients that have been tested on animals and obtain as many of their ingredients as possible from certified biodynamic and organic sources.
It is easy to apply and you only need a small amount . Warm it in your hands before applying to your face and neck.
It absorbs quickly and after I apply this my skin feels soft , soothed and looks moisturised and healthy and it doesn't feel or look greasy . I tend to use this more in cold weather as my skin becomes more sensitive in Winter and I find after a couple of weeks using this, my skin is calmer and any flaky patches disappear.
I don't use this all year round , because although it is an effective moisturiser , I am always on the look out for the miracle cream which probably doesn't exist , that will also deal with lines and wrinkles. Which is probably why my skin becomes sensitive as I chop and change and layer on different products.
Would I recommend
Definitely , this is a moisturiser I have used for many years that I find really effective at rebalancing my skin when it has become over-sensitive and for dealing with dry flaky patches. I don't know whether it is the slightly medicinal looking packaging or the rose smell , but I feel that this is healing and soothing my skin from the moment I apply this.
It is very gentle and feels skin friendly so I would recommend to anyone who has skin problems such as excema , sensitivity, redness or rosacea or dry patches.
This is always being talked about in the press and recommended by beauty editors and is one that a lot of celebreties seem to use. That doesn't always mean they are great products , but this lives up to the praise it receives.
I think it is reasonably priced at £23.95 for 30ml from the Dr Hauschka website. This is sold in Harvey Nichols and Space NK who are not known for selling value for money products .
This lasts me ages, because I don't use it every day , but as you only need a small amount this will last for several months if used daily. Also this doesn't go off quickly once opened , I would say at least 12 months.
What is great about this brand is they sell trial sized versions so you can try this for £3.50 and see whether it works for you before committing to the full size.
Shop around for this as the prices do vary - Amazon have it at £27.50 but Harvey Nichols are selling the same size for £24, so you can probably get this cheaper.
A 5 star must have moisturiser
As a lot of you may remember I have a big problem with my face, the skin is dry on my cheeks making it difficult for any make up to stay on and I haven't found a real solution as yet. A friend recommended this but reading up on it, it's mainly aimed at 'mature' skin. Even though I'm only 19 but skins pretty bad so I thought what could go wrong now so I may as well try some.
The price of this isn't pretty when I bought this is was over £20, just for a moisturiser is a little excessive to me but I bought it any way in hope that it would work. The website say that this is for dry sensitive and mature skin, well I have two of the three so it's fine for me to use this, they also state that each tube has over 1000 extracts of rose petals init (maybe that's why the high price!) The fragrance of this is of course Rose, it is made with Rose oil and extracts, this is lovely and I love being able to smell this on my face, it is very fresh and smells of spring flowers, which is great in the depressing months of winter. The rose petals in the tube "strengthens the skin and soothes redness and couperose conditions" This helps the skin to be encouraged to repair itself.
The cream is not very thick but not dead running either, this spreads really well so you only need a small amount, you apply a thin layer to get a 'veil' on your face, this way it stops any areas feeling oily, this soaks in quite fast, a couple of minutes and your ready to put your make-up or whatever on.
I've worn this a few times without make up to allow my skin to breath and the fragrance is long lasting, I put this on morning and night ( or whenever I get up and got to bed ) I've been using this for around 2 weeks now, and I have noticed the redness changing to pink but I do have a feeling that this is as far as it's going to go, it isn't much of a long term product to get my skin back to normal. However I have to say that you cannot get your skin rehydrated just by using a cream, you need to drink lots of liquids to get the moisture back into your body, so you also need to drink lots of water and get all the nutrients and vitamins your body needs, if you did this without using the creams, your skin would probably repair itself anything, this just helps to encourage it a little more.
My skin has been softer since using this and the colour has changed to pink, the bumps has smoothed out a little making my make up look a lot nicer and also a lot easier to apply, I have dark marks under my eyes because I cannot sleep, this has lightened them up a little which I am really please about. This is something I will continue using for a while longer to see if my condition clears up completely or if this is as good as it gets.

I have tried both the Dr Haushka day cream and the toner as they were recommended to me for my sensitive Rosacea skin. I had to go to a beauty salon to buy them as they aren't available in shops or department stores but they are available in some online shops.
I only ever bought them the once as they were on the expensive side and I wasn't that impressed with their redness reducing abilities although I did think that they were lovely to use.
The Rose day cream makes a big statement on the fact that it is ideal for Rosacea skin as it is supposed to help counteract and sooth redness and calm the skin whilst strengthening it.
The cream comes in quite a small 30ml tube and costs in the region of £24. The cream contains organic rose petal extract, rose hip and peanut oil to name but a few of its ingredients. There is no doubting that this is a high quality product and you can feel that quality on your skin.
The cream has quite a thick consistency and although I was expecting it to smell quite strongly of roses it wasn't overly pungent and had a nice subtle scent at least to my nose.
When you apply it to your skin you are supposed to warm it in your hands first and I really did find that this made it so much easier to apply and helped spread it out more.
I found that using this after the toner left my skin feeling ultra moisturised but as I have slightly greasy skin I did think that it was maybe slightly too rich for my skin. It did work wonders on my patches of dry skin and left my whole face looking much more even. It was amazing for protecting my skin in wintery conditions and coming in from the wind outside my skin didn't look weather beaten.
After using for a few weeks my skin was looking gorgeous and so smooth but it did hardly anything for the redness that I suffer from which is what I originally bought it for. I also couldn't get used to the dewy layer it left on the top of my skin although I was informed this wasn't grease but a protective layer. To me it just made me feel a bit paranoid that I looked shiny and greasy.
As I mentioned I only bought it once as it didn't really do anything to stop the redness on my skin. If I had only bought it as a moisturiser I would have been very happy with it especially if I had dry skin. For sensitive dry skin I would highly recommend this but if you are looking for something that will stop redness then look elsewhere. However if you are just looking for something that will moisturise without aggravating your skin then give this a try.
Used by celebrities and those in the know, Dr Haushcka Rose cream is the cult product that is everybody is talking about!
If you suffer from dry sensitive skin - then this is the product for you!
For years I have suffered with dehydrated skin that is prone to nasty flare ups and reactions to chemically enhanced products and central heating. Full of despair and sick of spending a fortune on trying variuos brands/skin care producs a friend of mine recommended Dr Hauschka Rose Cream.
A german brand that cares about the enviroment and the skin that it treats; the Rose cream helps regenerate the epidermis and aids the skin to maintain its moisture level.
Its main ingrediants include Rose, Avocado, Shea Butter, Lecithin, Citronellol and Limonene amongst others and it sinks into the skin like butter it also smells absolutley fantastic.
After a month of using the Rose cream my skin was transformed, fine lines and redness were reduced and my face felt smooth and looked radiant. Friends actually commented that my skin glowed. I can honestly say that I would not use any other product on my face now and I am a convert to Dr Hauschka!
I must admit first of all that I'm a huge fan of this brand and I adore quite all their products I've used till now.
I'm a 33 years old man with a normal / dry skin but mainly very dehydrated and my two biggest concerns are the fine lines around my eyes and also the lack of hydration I have.
This cream is specially conceived for dry, sensitive and mature skins. Reading some reviews on other sites I was afraid that this cream will be a little heavy for my skin. Anyway, decided to try it by my own, I've bought it some days ago and I'm using it for more than a week now.
The fragrance of this cream is really gorgeous, I admit that I adore rose fragrance and this cream smells really the spring rose flowers. As always the composition is clean and natural as all Dr Hauschka's products...
Water/Aqua, Arachis Hypogaea (Peanut) Oil, Althaea Officinalis (Marsh Mallow) Root Extract, Beeswax/Cera Flava,Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil Unsaponifiables, Hypericum Perforatum (St. John'swort) Extract, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Lecithin, Fragrance/Parfum (Essential Oil),Citronellol, Geraniol, Linalool, Limonene, Citral, Farnesol,Benzyl Alcohol, Eugenol, Rosa Gallica (Rose) Flower Wax,Rosa Gallica (Rose) Flower Extract, Rosa Canina (Rose Hip) Fruit Extract.
A friend of mine advised me a little bit on how to use and apply this cream. She is always warming up her hands before squeezing a little amount of this cream into her palms. She is warming up again the cream before applying it on the face... this protocol warms the cream and helps it to penetrate easily into the skin...
I must admit that this technique works, as far as I'm concerned no oily sensation on my face at all, just a light veil of moisture and a gorgeous fragrance...
But there is a little problem with this cream. The cream is great but mainly conceived for dry and mature skin. Let's clear one point, dry skin refers mainly to lack of lipids and dehydrated skin concerns the lack of moisture and here I'm really talking about water in cells. In my case it's more lack of hydration than lipids and this cream used alone it's not enough as it doesn't hydrate the skin. I would say that this cream on winter season and very cold and windy days is not enough for a normal dehydrated skin as I need first to apply the Moisturizing Day Cream and after apply just a veil of Rose Cream... This way the first cream hydrates and moisturizes my skin and the second offers all the nutriments my skin needs for a longtime protection and comfort...
I really advise you this cream because if applied with the right technique this cream won't leave any oily sensation on your skin and will protect you for all daily stress factors (smog, wind, cold weather, air conditioning...).
Just an advise if you allow me... When I'm using a brand generally I'm trying to follow up all the protocols and techniques provided by the brand in order to use their products the right way and also obtain and maximize the results... I saw on many sites specially French one, that people use this cream for the night treatment. I must admit that at the beginning I was a little bit surprised by the Dr Hauschka daily treatment, but reading in a old book the same statements I realize that they are right... Not using a cream for night treatment let your skin produce all the substances necessary for the internal functions and won't let it become lazy.
Our organism has the capacity to regulate its functions and I can assure you that even if I have a dry skin not applying any cream at night helped me to fight a little bit this dryness... At the beginning I had some strange feeling after finishing the night routine (cleansing and toning), it wasn't an uncomfortable sensation but just a little dryness on my face. But after few days I was also surprised to see that my skin regulates by its own and this dryness was gone. As you can see we have the capacity to solve out all problems by ourselves, then the only advise I can give you is just to follow up the right treatment and you'll see that results will appear in few days, don't innovate just use a proven treatment routines that works.
As I've told you bellow this cream is great for a dry (lack of lipids) or mature skin, if applied with the good technique won't leave you any oily sensation and will treat you skin condition very well. But I don't recommend you to use it alone to treat dehydrated skins during the coldest season as you can get the reverse result, I mean your skin condition can get worst because of Rose extracts that have an astringent effect on skin...
I have very dry skin and often suffer with flaky patches, especially during the cold winter months. I have tried numerous moisturising creams, some with better results than others. However I have recently found a cream that I think is amazing; Dr Hauschka's Rose day cream.
Dr Hauschka's products are normally to be found in beauty salons and I first came across this wonder cream at my local salon, when I was offered a small sample tube to try. I have used Dr Hauschka's products in the past and have always been pleased with the results. Rose day cream is recommended for sensitive, mature dry skin and has been recommended by several beauty magazines. The cream contains Rose oil and wild Rose hip extract, both of which are known to help calm and sooth skin. Dr Hauschka say that this cream works by giving the skin a protective nurturing film, keeping the skins natural moisture in and the harmful effects of the elements out.
The cream is available in either a 30 ml tube for around £21.00 or a trial size for around £3. The tube itself is nothing fancy; just plain white with an orange screw top lid. The cream itself is a pale beige colour and very thick. The Rose scent of the cream is truly gorgeous! I was surprised at how thick this cream was and initially worried that it would feel too heavy on my skin.
The instructions tell you to first cleanse your face. Then squeeze a small amount of the cream into the palm of your hand and then press your hands together slightly to warm the cream a little, before massaging into your face and neck. The cream may feel thick, but I was amazed at how easily it is absorbed into my skin. When I first started to use this cream I had flaky skin around the bridge of my nose; after using the cream for just a few days this has completely cleared up. Not only have the flaky patches disappeared, but my skin looks smooth and radiant. In short I couldn't be more pleased! I love the gorgeous scent of this cream and am pleased to report that the fragrance has caused no irritation.
Although Rose day cream is an amazingly good day moisturising cream, it is not recommended for use at night. This is because during the night your skin excretes toxins and any barrier cream would interfere with that process. Overall I love this cream and can't recommend it highly enough!
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
