Dr. Hauschka in the news

dr_hauschka_banner

We feel  a bit like a proud parent bragging about their child, but we would be remiss if we didn’t give a mention to all the incredible press Dr. Hauschka has been receiving lately.

Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream and been featured in Tory Burch, Style.com, and US Magazine lately. Gucci Westman and Jennifer Aniston regularly use the rose day cream as an integral part of their skin care routine. Aniston says, “I’ve used Neutrogena face soap since I was a teen. I also like Dr. Hauschka Rose day cream, which I now mix with sunblock.” Style describes the cream as, “I hate foundation, but I do wear Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream on my face. It feels natural, and I like the smell. It’s light, and it looks sort of like butter.”

Rose Day Cream isn’t getting all the love, NYMag features the Normalizing Day Oil stating,

“Before trying this product, I hadn’t concluded that anyone would actually want to switch from a lotion to a oil. Then, a few drops of this “normalizing” blend of apricot, peanut, carrot, sunflower, and other oils made my dry skin look fresh while eliminating most of grossness from that “T-zone” area dermatologists always signal out. Like a good cream, it felt nice to spread this stuff across my face in the morning. And the slightly medicinal/menthol-y smell (it has added fragrance, unlike many others tested) suggested cleanliness with no extra cologne needed. Only problem: With no dropper included, the bottle is a bit messy.”

If you’re looking for a body oil, instead of face – The Beauty Bean has a great review on the Dr. Hauschka Lemon Lemongrass Body Oil calling it, “No gimmicks, no empty promise, just a high quality body oil that will firm and fortify the skin to diminish the appearance of cellulite.”

Looking to shrink your pores? The Scoop has a selection of featured products that help minimize their appearance, including the Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Clay Mask.
