Great for my combination skin

Honestly don't know what my skin is doing from one day to the next - oily in places, dry in others. This cream helps balance it out, and it smells lovely and fresh

Perfect hydration in the summer

I love using this cream in the summer as it's a great moisturiser without being heavy, and great for sensitive skin.

Really happy!

This was one of the first purchases I made from Dr Hauschka and I wasn’t disappointed! My skin is combination, I suffer from breakouts round my forehead, and oily T-Zone but red, dry cheeks. The free cleansing cream that comes with this day cream is fabulous, I use it morning and night, my skin feels so fresh and soft afterwards. I love that it’s cleansing in a really gentle way.
The day cream is really lovely, it glides onto my skin and absorbs really quickly which I like. My skin feels lovely and soft all day and I don’t have that horrible oily shine on my T-Zone I used to get by the end of the day. The smell of the day cream is my favourite, reminds me of a spa! I mix the soothing mask with the day cream when I’m having a particularly red day but that’s happening less and less since I started using these products.

Perfect morning kick

Superb quality, it smells so earthy and is very light but firm on the skin. I wish it was more of it!

Best transitional cream.

I use this cream when my dry winter cream is no longer needed and we move into Spring/ Summer and I need a lighter consistency. It deals with my oily T zone and drier sides of my face. A good all rounder.

Love this stuff

My favourite day-to-day face cream EVER. You really notice a difference after using it... even only a few days. It is a nice consistency, the tube lasts a while and you don't even know you have it on. I put make up straight on top.

My skin feels amazing I can’t recommend this brand enough ! I'd never heard of the brand until a client gifted me a tin of bath oils. I felt like I was walking on cloud nine after, everything does what it says x

Best moisturiser I’ve ever used!

As in the title it really is the best product I’ve ever used. My skin is problematic prone to breakouts and this moisturiser is not heavy nor too light, I feel my skin balance after using it.

Great every day product

I’ve been using this for months and it’s great for combination skin. It has a matte effect that gets rid of of shining T bar on your face. No more checking for shining patches on my face. Highly recommend.

Made my combination skin more oily sadly

Admittedly I have hormonally changing skin, however this cream I think will be better for me to use in the Autumn/Winter as it seems too heavy and makes my combination skin more oily. That said, it is a good moisturiser. For the Spring/Summer I am now using the Revitalising moisturiser with a couple of drops of the clarifying day oil. Perfect. Thank you for that website tip Dr Hauschka.
