DrHauschka Rose Day Cream Review

Hello Lovelies,

Welcome back! And if you are new here, welcome 💕💕💕

Dr.Hauschka Rose Day Cream Review

How are you guys doing? Hope you are all well?

Today I will be reviewing one product from the brand that pretty much has started it all - and I think we will all agree that DrHauschka is a pioneer in green beauty long before it was cool and popular. It is a hereditary brand that gets much of my respect - there are not many green beauty brands that can claim they have been started in 1935 after all! I love the company's ethos and ingredients they use. The brand has been written about time and time again, everyone and their mother knows it, so I feel I can safely skip the introduction part to it and jump to the product review. May I? I feel everyone who is starting with the all things natural, starts with this brand. Thankfully it is widely available everywhere, in the health shops and online - in Love Lula, Amazon, Big Green Smile, Ethical Superstore, The Natural Collection & more.

The official blurb says it is a rich, luxurious daily moisturizer. Soothing rose ingredients nurture and renew sensitive, dry and weather-damaged skin. Protects skin against dryness and soothes red, irritated skin - I have to agree with all of it!

Key benefits:
  • Protects the delicate outer layer of the skin against dryness and irritation
  • Avocado oil with extracts of rose petal and rose hip soothe and renew red, irritated, sensitive skin
  • Seals in moisture to help prevent dryness
  • 30 rose petals go into each tube of Rose Day Cream
  • Used as directed, Rose Day Cream lasts approximately 3 months

Water (Aqua), Arachis Hypogaea (Peanut) Oil, Althaea Officinalis Root Extract, Beeswax (Cera Alba), Hypericum Perforatum Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Sucrose Distearate, Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil Unsaponifiables, Fragrance (Parfum), Citronellol*, Geraniol*, Linalool*, Limonene*, Citral*, Farnesol*, Benzyl Alcohol*, Eugenol*, Rosa Damascena Flower Extract, Rosa Canina Fruit Extract, Rosa Damascena Flower Wax, Lanolin, Lecithin *Component of natural essential oils.

A sign of a well loved product, ha! DrHauschka Rose Day Cream

My thoughts & verdict:
I love this product! Even though I knew about if for years, I held off from buying as I always saw it as overpriced - and at around 30€ per 30ml it is indeed not cheap. But having said all that, this year I've come to change my mind when it comes to the pricing of the products - if it suits me, it is indeed well worth it's price. Up until last year or so I was on a self inflicted mission to find the cheapest but still good products in every category - but I was doomed to fail at this on so many different levels - my uber sensitive skin wouldn't tolerate soooo many products I've lost count, many cheaper products have less-than-desirable ingredients in them (alcohol as one of the first ingredients, anyone?) or they are simply not available to me (finding a good product in TKMaxx and never being able to find it ever since, anyone?) or the crippling custom fees from buying from outside EU?
So I decided not to be so much of a perfectionist and not to sweat small stuff too much and sort of end my search for the cheapest products, after all I've got only one face that I should cherish rather than abuse, and nobody is paying me to test all these products after all! So yes, my moisturiser costs a bit more now, but so what? It is well worth it. If it suits me, the most sensitive skin gal, it is most likely to suit you as well - I highly recommend picking up a sample if you haven't already try it, and if you did, I want to know your thoughts on it! It made my skin happy, supple, well nourished, and all the irritations I have from time to time were vanished for the whole time I used it, and everybody commented on how good my skin looked. My skin is dry, so the greasiness from the cream didn't bother me one bit, I would say my skin lapped it up! This time around I got the light version, but in my eyes it is still a rich, almost greasy type of cream, not light at all - don't expect it to be thin lotion kind of product. I would say you would like it if your skin is dry to normal, even combo to some extent, but if you have greasy skin, this product is not for you I am afraid. Nor it is suitable for my vegan friends, I am sorry. And if you have severe peanut allergy, please stay clear of it - the second ingredient in it is peanut oil, which surprised me, but as I don't have allergy to it, I am fine with it. I have to say the cream lasted me a month, even though I was very careful of not using it too much, only a pea sized amount - at first I used it both morning and night, but after seeing it going at a lighting speed, I only used it in the morning. So I am not sure about the three month thing. As you can see from the photo above, I scraped every last bit of it and want more, like ASAP! I have tried some fabulous green beauty creams after this (I had a few waiting to be tried, I only use one thing of each category at a time) but nothing lived up to it, so I think I found my perfect product! Already repurchased, see my last Instagram post 💕

Have you tried this or any other DrHauschka product? How you like them? What do you think I should try next from this brand?
