      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Best cream I've ever tried and results are visible after the first application...

      As you already know I'm a huge fan of this brand and until now I've never been deluded by their products... For quite a while I was searching for a good hydrating cream for day usage especially during the cold season and finally I must admit that I've found the good one...

      About Product & Features

      All the products from Iris range are featured with Iris rhizome extracts, used mainly to support the natural self-regulating properties of the skin ensuring the optimal oil and moisture balance and keeping the skin in the same time really hydrated.

      They also precise that Iris range brings extra moisture for skin up to the age of 30, but it can be used at any age as hydration is really needed even to fight wrinkles or against any other external aggressions (like windy days, cold season, pollution...).

      This cream is an intensive care for daily use, has a rich texture and is suitable for dry skin all year long and/or normal skin in winter season. It provides intensive hydration, whilst helping to regulate the skin's natural balance.

      INCI

      Water (Aqua), Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Distillate, Alcohol, Glycerin, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Lysolecithin, Beeswax (Cera Flava), Hydrolyzed Beeswax, Iris Germanica Root Extract, Xanthan Gum, Fragrance (Parfum)*, Limonene*, Linalool*, Citronellol*, Geraniol*, Citral*, Eugenol* (*from natural essential oils).

      Certified BDIH and newly NaTrue (2** stars -> meaning - Certified Natural Cosmetics with Organic Ingredients) this cream is suitable for vegetarians.

      Strengths

      As I've told you my skin really needs hydration and this cream is the first one that brings to my skin all it needs... I was afraid when I bought this cream that it will be a little too heavy for my skin, but used and applied with the right technique this cream is really wonderful. To give you an example, I'm also using Dr Hauschka products but none of their creams is capable to hydrate so well my skin and for all day long, even in a windy and cold winter day... I'm impressed and amazed in the same time, how good this cream is for people like me who really need a lot of hydration... The fragrance is good, I mean not so perfumed, just the right amount and it gives you a real pleasant felling just after applying it... You feel your skin really hydrated, pampered and very soft and smooth.

      Weaknesses

      None, not even the price... as it's quite affordable for 30 ml it costs around 10 Euro.

      How to use

      Apply to cleansed skin in the morning and gently massage into the face, neck and decolletage. Use only as much as the skin can readily absorb. For very dry skin you can also use Weleda Iris Hydrating Facial Masque for an intensive moisture boost. Also for dry skin, caused by seasonal or hormonal changes or changes in the weather, you can use Weleda Iris Hydrating Day Cream in combination with Weleda Iris Hydrating Facial Lotion.

      I have a quite different technique for applying this cream... In fact I'm using a floral water (Orange or Rose) that I'm spraying before on the skin. When the skin is still wet I'm using a little amount of this cream that I warm up for some seconds in my palms and gently applying all over my face... The mixture of the two products (floral water and cream) gives a light emulsion that really penetrates into the skin in some seconds, leaving the skin fresh, hydrated and with a nice velvet veil.

      Final Opinion

      Finally after long searches I've found the right hydrating cream for the cold season... Great fragrance, nice feeling on my skin and really hydrating, in fact it has all I need in a 30ml tube... The price is really affordable and you can find it in quite any beauty store... I intend to buy the Night Cream and also the Mask from the same range as those two products are complementary with this cream and really make a complete routine to hydrate the skin all over the year. Dehydration marks and wrinkles on my face are completely gone and my skin is smoother with a velvet look.

      Don't search anymore a solution to hydrate your skin, as this cream is all you need to solve your problem out...!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Great product for the daily cleansing routine for face and eye contour, mild and refreshing...

      Having a normal but dehydrated skin I had to change a little bit the daily cleansing protocol using products more adapted for my skin type and also for my particular needs... First step I had to banish all detergent and harsh products and use more gentle one. A friend of mine dermatologist advised me to use a cleansing cream for my daily cleansing routine... At the beginning I must admit it was quite intrigued as I never use makeup or other stuff like this, but though why not give a try...

      After long searches found this product and I must admit that this is a very good product quite an absolute delight for dry skins....

      About Product & Features

      Benefits:

      - All the delight of a soft, nourishing cream that removes makeup perfectly from the eyes and face.
      - Can be rinsed off with water without leaving a feeling of tightness.
      - A formula with delectable and high-performance active ingredients, especially formulated for dry skin.
      - Softens the skin, provides a draining action and stimulates skin micro-circulation.
      - Moisturizes the skin and leaves it feeling supple and incredibly comfortable.
      - Tones the skin, helps reduce blotchiness and protects with its anti-free radical action.

      INCI

      Water (Aqua), Hydrogenated Polydecene, Cetyl Palmitate, Glycerin, Ceteth-20, Vegetable Oil (Olus), Cetyl Alcohol, Dicaprylyl Ether, Sorbitan Stearate, Zea Mays (Corn) Oil, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Gossypium Herbaceum (Cotton) Fruit Water, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract, Angelica Archangelica Root Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Oil, Elaeis Guineensis (Palm) Oil, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax (Candelilla Cera), Triethanolamine, Fragrance (Parfum), Carbomer, Tetrasodium Edta, Tocopheryl Acetate, Xanthan Gum, Benzyl Benzoate, Citronellol, Geraniol, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Limonene, Linalool, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Butylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Propylparaben.

      As you can see it contains some paraben preservatives and some other chemical stuff, but anyway as it's used only to cleans and the skin won't absorb anything, there is no big risk at all. They also state that this product meets natural beauty standards with a high concentration of quality natural botanical ingredients while keeping harsh chemicals to a minimum level.

      Strengths

      This velvet cream is great for cleansing face and eyes, very mild and with a very pleasant fragrance, I would say it has a very refreshing and delightful perfume. It doesn't dry at all and leaves your skin fresh and clean... as I'm not using makeup I can't give an objective opinion about removing it, but it cleans very well all the daily stuff you're accumulating on your skin (pollution, cigarette, smog...).

      Weaknesses

      I would say the composition which is not 100 % natural, but as I've said before, being used only to clean the skin then there is no big risk...

      How to use

      Massage the cream over the skin with the fingertips, using gentle circular movements. Rinse off with water or remove with a toner or any other lotion. As far as I'm concerned I'm using it on dry skin directly, massaging a generous amount all over my face including eyes contour and after 2 or 3 minutes I'm just whipping it off with a wet towel using a Japanese technique...

      Final Opinion

      This cleansing cream is very good for the daily cleansing routine, is very mild for dry and dehydrated skins and even for eye contour, leaving your skin smooth and velvety looking... It has a good composition even if it contains some chemical compounds they aren't dangerous at all for your skin or health as the percentage used if very low... I've used this cream for a while and was really satisfied by the results... The price is very interesting (around 25 Euro for a 400 ml combo bottle). Decleor is doing a permanent promotion on this product as you'll pay quite the same price as for 250 ml bottle and in Paris you can buy it almost in every beauty store... Just give it a try and I can guarantee you won't be disappointed at all... I've also tried their milky version for normal skins and had the same good experience... I must admit that their cleansing range is very good, mild products, refreshing fragrances and interesting prices...

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Best cream I've ever tried and results are visible after the first application... Don't think twice!

        As I've told you in my past reviews, my biggest concern is my dry and thin skin all over my face and my little dehydration wrinkles around my eyes. Having a thin skin, I must be very careful, hydrating and protecting it more than normal because being so fragile, wrinkles can appear quicker than on other skin types...

        Thanks God...!, I don't have deep wrinkles but specially during winter or cold season mainly, I can see very well little wrinkles around my eyes... and I'm not talking about the expression one, I mean when I smile or something like this... Anyway, I've looked for many years for a good cream to treat the delicate eye contour... and having tried the most expensive one existing on the market never got the results I was looking for. But one day I've discover this wonderful cream which is in fact more a balm than a cream, but gives you great results after the first application...

        Dr Hauschka site states that this balm :

        - Visibly smooth wrinkles and fine lines,
        - Moisturize and protect against dryness (Cocoa Butter and Jojoba Oil),
        - Soothe tender skin (Camellia and Anthyllis Extracts),
        - Support and strengthen delicate skin (Neem and Silk Powder).

        INCI

        Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Arachis Hypogaea (Peanut) Oil, Beeswax/Cera Flava, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Root Extract, Anthyllis Vulneraria Extract, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Hypericum Perforatum (St. John'swort) Extract, Silk/Serica Powder,Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Melia Azadirachta (Neem) Leaf Extract, Fragrance/Parfum (Essential Oil),Citronellol, Geraniol, Limonene, Linalool, Citral, Eugenol,Farnesol, Lecithin.

        As all Dr Hauschka products, this balm has a clean and natural composition, smells great, hydrates well even if the texture is quite greasy and protects all day long your fragile eyes contour against dehydration or other exogenous harmful agents.

        I must admit that I'm using this cream for a week now and I can really notice the difference, my eye contour is hydrated and my little dehydration wrinkles have diminished in depth and this without any optical cheat as many other conventional creams which are mainly using mineral compounds in order to reflect the light giving the impression of a smooth skin or worst using any type of silicon filmogenic derivatives...

        This natural cream really treats the dehydration on eye contour area and gives a real comfort to the skin... I won't say that deep wrinkles will be completely treated with this cream, but using it on a daily base you can really improve your skin quality, giving it more hydration, protection for a great look and resilience...

        This balm can also be used before steaming your face and treating yourself to a sauna, in order to protect the sensitive skin around the eyes.

        There is also a little trick to know before applying this cream, a friend of mine told me to use a floral water toner before applying it around eye contour... I must admit that this technique helps a lot the balm to easy penetrate and be quickly absorbed by the skin, locking in the same time the moisture offered by the flower water toner into the skin.

        You don't need a big amount of this balm meaning that the 10 g container can last you for at least 4 to 5 months using it only during the morning routine. You really need the amount of a rice grain that you have to soften through your fingers and then apply gently using a tapping and circular movements from the inner to the outer eye contour.

        More than sure I won't changed it soon at least I'll found better than this one, but I'm not sure I'll find something better soon...

        The price of this balm is around 23,00 Euro in Paris, but you can find it cheaper on German stores or even eBay.

        As I've told you this balm won't do miracles for your skin but it will hydrate, nourish and protect it all day long, which is already a very good point. I guess for very warm season it can be a little to greasy on skin but you can use it from October till April without any problem.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Great feet cream, giving a refreshing sensation, perfuming as well and softening the dry skin...

        Thanks God, I don't have any problem with my feet (I mean bad smell or sweating) but saw this cream in my favorite store and as I'm quite curios and adore this brand, I decided to buy it... In fact bought it first for my cousin as a gift but he decided not to use it as he doesn't really appreciate or use natural skin care brands...

        Anyway, having it in and wanting to treat my dry skin, decided to use it at least to see how it works... This non-greasy cream is conceived to instantly cool, moisturize and helps nourish dry feet keeping the skin supple and soft. The non-greasy texture helps you to keep feet soft and comfortably dry, using a refreshing combination of essential oils cools and leaves a pleasant subtle aroma on the skin.

        I must admit that this cream is really pleasant to use... having a wonderful fragrance and leaving your feet dry and soft all day long... I've first tried it once and decided to use it on a daily basis as it softens the skin and leaves a pleasant fragrance.

        INCI

        Water (Aqua), Alcohol, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Lanolin, Magnesium Aluminium Silicate, Fragrance (Parfum)*, Commiphora Myrrha Resin Extract, Hydrolysed Beeswax, Sodium Beeswax, Calendula Officinalis Extract, Limonene*, Linalool*, Citronellol*, Geraniol*, Citral*, Coumarin* (* from natural essential oils).

        As far as I'm concerned I don't have any problems with sweating, bad odors or something like this, then I can't really state if this cream could be good enough for this purpose but all I can say is that it softens, hydrates very well the skin and has a wonderful fragrance. Also noticed another thing, having a pair of shoes that I really love but they have a strange leather inner soles that smells a little bit weird, using this cream my socks doesn't smell weird as they usually do, they only have quite the same perfume as the cream, which is a very good point...

        It works well and the perfume is really wonderful. I guess it will be a really interesting product for the warm season, because it cools very well your feet and leaves a refreshing sensation.

        I've never been deluded by Weleda products until now and this products is really great for a basic usage.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Natural composition, really pleasant fragrance, not too expensive, living your skin hydrated...

        Having a dry skin all over the body, after each shower or bath I have to apply a body cream or lotion... otherwise my skin is so itchy. I must admit that I've tried a bunch of products but none of them gave me complete satisfaction... Fragrances were great but each time I was applying those products had a long lasting oily sensation on my skin...

        I don't have enough time in the morning to wait until creams or lotions are well absorbed into the skin, so I must admit I was quite desperate to find the good product, that hydrates and nourishes without living any oily sensation...

        Some months ago while I was visiting a friend of mine in Italy, I saw a nice blue bottle in his bathroom... Quite surprised to see that he was a huge fan of Weleda's products, I've asked him about this body lotion... He told me that having quite the same problems with the oily sensation left on the skin by other creams and following his grandma advises he bought this wonderful body lotion...

        I've decided right a way to give a try to this product in order to be sure that the solution to my long search was finally found and I must admit that this new trial wasn't disappointing at all... The fragrance is gorgeous kind of mixture between citrus, mandarin and also orange notes, living a refreshing and invigorating sensation and the most important thing the lotion penetrates the skin in some seconds... gifting you with a pampered skin fully hydrated and nourished...

        INCI

        Water (Aqua), Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Alcohol, Hippophae Rhamnoides Oil, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Fragrance (Parfum)*, Limonene*, Linalool*, Benzyl Benzoate*, Xanthan gum, Tapioca Starch. *from natural essential oils.

        The composition is clean and natural as all their products. Not too sophisticated but well conceived in order to hydrate and replenish the skin without living any oily sensation. I'm thrilled by this product and must admit that I'm using it all year long... as it's not too light for winter and not too oily on warm season...

        Sea Buckthorn is known to give a lighter hale to the skin, enhancing the existing suntan and protecting your skin from UV rays during exposure to the sun. The oil is already widely used alone or in various preparations topically applied for burns, ulcerations, infections and the emollient properties promote tissue regeneration.

        Their body range contains oils and lotions. I've never been a great fun of their body oils even if they are great for massages and this because I'm using Dr Hauschka oils that I found really fabulous... But their body lotions are very good products and quite affordable.

        In Paris is quite difficult to find foreign products, as for example, some Weleda's body lotions aren't available in France or even other organic or natural brands... More than sure you have a big choice if you're looking for French brands, but German or English brands are quite difficult to find or are sold at an outrageous price...

        The only advise I can give you is just to give this lotion a try and you'll see the results by yourself...

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Great all purpose cream, with a wonderful fragrance and heeling almost everything...

          I must admit that this product is really amazing... I was looking for a product like this for years and I'm glad I've finally found this one...

          The main purpose of this cream is moisture and protection... but this light cream can do more than that...

          Let's talk first about the texture, fragrance and the composition of this wonderful all purpose cream... As always the composition is clean and natural, I personally adore the fragrance as it has some citrus and lemon-grass notes that really gives you a refreshing and toning sensation... This cream is light and has more a lotion texture than a cream one...

          INCI : Water/Aqua, Anthyllis Vulneraria Extract, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Alcohol, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil,Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Root Extract, Arachis Hypogaea (Peanut) Oil, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ Oil, Hypericum Perforatum (St. John'swort) Extract, Glycerin, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract,Lecithin, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil,Fragrance/Parfum (Essential Oil), Limonene, Linalool,Farnesol, Benzyl Benzoate, Geraniol, Citronellol, Citral,Eugenol, Benzyl Salicylate, Algin, Xanthan Gum.

          I'll give you more details in order to show you that this product could be used for almost everything and during any season.

          Having a normal to dry but mainly very dehydrated skin and during the windy and cold winter days the Rose Cream is not sufficient to really bring hydration to my skin. Following the Dr Hauschka site advises, this cream can be used as the first step of your daily skin care treatment and combined with another cream depending on your skin type, needs and weather conditions...

          I'll give you bellow some tips concerning my daily routines :

          - During the winter season on windy and really cold days you can first apply this cream in order to deeply moisture the skin. Right after you can apply a little amount of Rose or Rose Light Cream in order to add an extra protection for your skin.

          - During the summer, this cream can be used alone, bringing a refreshing sensation, hydration and a marvelous refreshing perfume to your skin...

          - During the spring and autumn season this cream can be used combined with Quince Cream. This way the first cream hydrates your skin and the second gives to your skin a great protection for all external aggressive agents.

          As you can see, this cream can be used all year long and I would rather say for quite each skin type... But I must admit that I use it also for other skin treatments than my face skin...

          As I was traveling abroad, I've suddenly realized that I have forgotten home my hand cream... Thought a little bit and decided to use this cream for my hands... I must admit that it has repaired and protected my skin very well...

          Also during last summer while I was in Italy got a really bad sunburn on my back... I've just used this cream for three days long as a body milk and got a nice replenishing skin well repaired and great looking...

          Really this cream is great for almost everything and I really adore the refreshing sensation it leaves on your skin each time you're applying it... Try it at least once and you'll see what I'm talking about. The fragrance is question of personal taste and I can't assure you at all you'll love it, but the results you can get using this product are great and without any doubt this cream is one of the best...

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Great cream good to treat dry skin (lack of lipids) but not the best to rehydrate it...!

          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...

          INCI

          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...

          Best cream I've ever tried and results are visible after the first application... Don't think twice!

          Here is the little story of this wonderful and marvelous cream... In fact I've discovered this cream looking after a good hand cream... I must admit that I was a little bit desperate as all the creams I've used before were quite a big deception for me, not treating or healing chapped and dry hand skin at all...

          At the beginning as I was afraid a little bit concerning the fragrance of this product as it is 100 % natural, but frankly this is the best cream I've ever tried, plus it has a wonderful and very delicate fragrance...

          Water (Aqua), Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Lanolin, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Alcohol, Beeswax (Cera Flava), Glyceryl Linoleate, Hydrolyzed Beeswax, Fragrance (Parfum)*, Viola Tricolor Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Cholesterol, Limonene*, Linalool*, Geraniol*, Citral*, Coumarin* (* from natural essential oils).

          As you can see no harsh preservatives, no mineral oils and no other silicons or other garbage like this... This cream is simply the best to treat dry skin and protect from cold weather especially on winter season... I've tried it first to treat and heal my dry hand skin, fully and badly chapped...

          Applied it before going to bed and massaged it well on my skin (anyway the cream penetrate quite well and fast, but I must admit that it gives a real pleasure to massage it into the skin)... The fragrance is delicate, really pleasant and comforting... When I waked up next morning I was more than amazed, no dry skin, no cracks, no nothing, just a wonderful skin replenished, fully hydrated and feeling so well...

          After this first good impression and being frankly more than amazed of the fast results I've obtained using this cream, I've decided to apply it also on my face skin... After a single application my skin was really hydrated and even the little wrinkles around the eyes was gone... What else to say, I found a cream that's good for everything, smelling divine and not costing a lot... In Paris this 30 ml trial tube is around 6,50 Euro but bought from UK or Germany the big size (75 ml) is around the same price...

          This cream conquered me and I'm really amazed by the results I've got each time I'm using it... All I can say is that Weleda is a great brand, natural and really good... I'm really impressed and amazed by their products...

          By the way a little precision, it contains Cholesterol but in a little percentage as it placed quite at the end (see INCI) but is natural and macromolecular sized... meaning that it can't penetrate the skin barrier at all.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Dr Hauschka - Great, simple and good products for your daily skin treatment.

          Like many others I've used for years very expensive skin care products, paying a lot of money for I would say nothing... just an outrageous marketing and a nice container...! No results or less than promised, a lot of silicone and other bunch of harmful products in the composition but having the impression to do the best for me and my skin...

          But thanks God, all that is behind me... and I'm finally enjoying the pleasure of using natural products, free of all petrochemical compounds and other dangerous preservatives...

          It's came to me one day, when being tired to look after a good hand cream, I've tried another brand called Weleda... It's true that the texture was different and also the fragrance used to perfume the product, but I was surprised to see how efficient the cream was and all this not being expensive at all...

          I have some preferred beauty stores in Paris where I'm mostly buying natural and organic products and in one of those stores I had the pleasure to discovered Dr Hauschka products... I had the chance to have some trials or trial them directly using the tester in the store and from the begging I was conquered by the fragrance and also the good results I've had using their products.

          There is no question about brand fame or something like this (even if some friends of mine told me that some VIP are using this brand... anyway as far as I'm concerned and nowadays this doesn't mean anything at all, as for money anyone can claim everything), it's all about the results you've got using this products...

          I'm also impressed about their policy concerning the daily skin treatment, as far as I'm concerned this is the first time when a brand state to not use at night nothing else than cleansing and toning products... One really good point for them, as I've read in a book offered by a friend of mine about the night routine regimen treatment and even if the edition I've been offered was published in 1970 they state the same thing concerning the usage of the night creams... advising that at least twice a week to not use something else that the normal cleansing and toning routine...

          Really, I'm not a longtime user of this brand and haven't used all their products but for what I've tried or used till now I'm more than impressed... Don't think that it will replace the plastic surgery at all because there is no product who can replace it, but some improvements using the products you can see after only few days...

          Anyway I'll try to publish a review on each product I'm using this way you'll have more details as I don't want this review to become to long or to boring to read...

          Just one more thing... At this moment and having tried many different brands, there is no miraculous product... Skin reflects your internal health, then eat well, have a healthy life style and you'll see the difference. Dr Hauschka products are well to support the skin in its own regenerating process, but won't do miracles... Another important point, the diet is essential, eating the right stuff, having various and healthy meals will help you a lot... Let's be clear from the beginning, don't wait a lot from a product otherwise you'll be deluded.

          Use only products that are mild for you and who will help your skin to regenerate by its own processes. I'm not saying to use natural ones but it has been proven that all synthetic stuff isn't good for your skin and also can be dangerous for your health. Don't read or believe in commercial advertising but just make your own opinion trying or using the products. This is the only way you can be sure what product is really good for you.
