Along with fussy hair, I have fussy skin. I have slight rosacea, with combination skin. Lotion tends to make my skin break out and still manage to not take care of the dry flakes. And on top of that, it feels like I’m wearing a greasy lead apron on my face, which I don’t deal well with. I got a couple of samples of Dr. Hauschka’s Regenerating Day Cream and Regenerating Night Serum.
The day cream is very light. I’m not overly in love with the smell of it. It’s citrusy, but not in a light sort of way. It’s not overly heavy and absorbs nicely. And, it takes care of my dry skin, which has been exacerbated by the sudden onset of winter in the northeast over the last few days. It did seem to make my face break out a little, so if you’re prone to lotion making you break out, this might not be for you.
The night time serum is a little bit better as it’s a serum, so the texture is much much lighter. After exfoliating my skin, and using tea tree oil pads, I applied the serum, which soothed my skin. It absorbed immediately and didn’t feel oily. The next morning, I noticed a difference in the even color of my skin. Not too red, or blotchy, which normally tends to happen to me the next day after I exfoliate my skin. I also noticed that the dark patches on my face (age spots. Getting old sucks!) seem a little lighter.
Overall, I would probably use the night serum over the day cream, just due to the nature of my skin. But both of them work really well. This is my first run with Dr. Hauschka products and I definitely wasn’t disappointed. But it does have a few more chemically sounding ingredients for my liking. This brand for me, at least, will require a little bit more research.
Get It: You can find a wide array of Dr. Hauschka’s products at most Whole Foods stores, or you can order online at Saffron Rouge.
