​Beauty Review:  Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream​ is the best anti-aging facial cream I’ve used thus far.

Last year, after I turned 30, I began to get a twinge of terror when I looked in the mirror under bright light. I was getting wrinkles!  For the first time, I began to mentally prepare myself for the inevitable aging process.  At the time, I was using MyChelle Deep Repair Cream.  I loved this cream but didn’t use it long because I got complaints from my BF that it smelled like mustard, so I looked into Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream, which I had read a lot about and noticed it had a sort of cult following for many years now, including J. Lo! And her skin is amazing!  I bought it on Amazon which was much cheaper than Whole Foods.  I loved the smell of it right away.  It felt really luxurious.  My only complaint is that it is a bit too thick.  I remedied that by wetting my hands before applying to thin it out a little.  Eight months later without even really paying attention, I realized that my skin looked like the way it used to! I wondered if I was going crazy last year when I noticed the wrinkles.  The wrinkles were never obvious in the first place but I do notice that my face feels as firm and smooth as it did >3 years ago.  Even though it is described as a day cream, I preferred to use it at night because it does feel a bit heavy and by the morning time the product has been fully absorbed and feels just right.  I’m almost out of the product and think next time I’ll buy the light version for easier application.  For comparison, other facial moisturizers I’ve used include:  Burt’s Bees, Oil of Olay, Clarins, Clinique, Kiss My Face, Avene, Shiseido, Roc, and Vanicream.  Dr. Hauschka is by far the best. What’s the best facial cream you’ve tried?  Would love to hear your thoughts.

  1. I’ve recently gotten hooked on the Origins line. I have been using the Plantscription Day Cream (http://www.origins.com/product/15352/42205/skincare/moisturize/moisturizers/Plantscription/SPF-25-Power-Anti-Aging-Oil-Free-Cream), and I noticed right after I started using it my face felt softer when I went to wash it at night. And in fact, just yesterday I added a Nitamins Oil Free moisturizer to my night routine. Excited to see how that will add to what I already love.

    1. Ohh, actually I did try out this Clarins day cream at my sister’s apartment. It felt really great and had a wonderful texture and smell. Love that it has SPF too. My only reservation about it was the chemical sunscreen ingredient. I’m debating whether or not it is worth the risk.
      I’ll need to do a little more research. Thanks Andrea. You have great taste!
