Love it! It's officially my HG mascara.I'd been using this mascara a few years ago, when it came with compact, rather thin brush. Then they had change the brush to more fluffy, which was impossible to use without messing, thus I stopped.For a few years I've been searching for my perfect mascara, a could find something I was 100% happy about.Either it was the price, animal testing, lashes condition, etc.When I noticed the mascara was refreshed with new brush and packaging, initially I tried the "regular version" with thin brush but this one is way better.My lashes are quite long and dense, thus I wanted mascara which will give them a little bit of everything - volume, definition, separation and length. And this mascara delivers all.My lashes are just beautiful - look like they were created by nature that way ;) They are defined, black, glossy and soft. and I'm not getting any eye irritation like it was with drugstore or "luxury" mascaras.And this mascara does not run or smudge. This was my biggest issue with most of them (clinique, HR Lash Queen, Better than sex, MAC and many others). Lashes stay soft and light, but the mascara does not transfer or fall into crumbs on cheeks - nothing like that. It survived hot, humid summer months with no trace of "destruction" ;) However it is very water-non-resistant - if you wet your face, even accidentally (.i.e. light summer rain, grass sprinkler, swimming pool) it will run - just to warn you.But still it is the best mascara I could find on the market. It might not be suitable for those with allergic reaction, as it contains aromatic oils - I have no issues with that, but it could be a deal breaker for some.And the do not test on animals - great :D

Got a small trial size of this and was super excited to give it a try. I used this AM and PM as the first step in my skincare routine. I would dampen my face with warm water and mix this with a touch of water in the palm of my hand and then 'press' into my skin. It does become tempting to rub but you should avoid doing that. Repeat several more times and then rinse. What I found with this is it is quite hydrating and on a night time I would not require a moisturizer afterwards. It is quite a novel method of cleansing (at least for me) and also slightly time consuming. I'm used to just foaming up a cleanser on my face and rinsing off. I did notice some brightness but no difference on pores. It didn't break me out either which is a good thing and my skin actually 'felt' better, as odd as that might sound. I find the Dr Hauschka range to be hit and miss - love the ingredients and concept but I don't find that the products really do anything significant for my skin.

I got this as part of a Dr Hauschka sample pack full of lots of trial sizes. Of all the products this one was probably one of my least favorites. In itself it's not a bad product at all, with a lovely scent and natural ingredients, just too heavy for me to use on a daily basis, perhaps 'rich' would be a better word as the cream itself absorbed pretty rapidly and kept my skin nicely hydrated, but as the days progressed my face looked more and more like an oil slick. I only used on a night time, just a pea sized amount carefully patted onto the skin as opposed to massaging in until absorbed - which is what I would usually do with a moisturizer. Funnily enough my skin usually switches to something more along the lines of 'normal' when I'm in colder climates so I decided to take this with me on a trip to northern Europe, but despite that I was still finding this too rich and the same oil slick problem. Definitely one for more drier and dehydrated skin types.

This is an odd product with consistency of rich eye balm.I does not contain any turbo ingredients like retinol nor peptides, thus the effects are not spectacular.When using it, you have to bear in mind the holistic Hauschka's philosophy to avoid using anything fatty on you face for night. Thus this cream is only meant to be used as a day cream (as any other Hauschkas creams).I got mine jar and used it almost for a whole year, and then used remainings as a lip and nail balm (as I was worried the cream could gone sour, thus too risky to use for eye area).All you need is a tiny amount of the product to pat under you eyes. Surprisingly this stuff works ;) I have no idea what is the secret ingredient behind it, but my crow's feet were less prominent and the crepey skin under my eyes was gone. Moreover the whole area brightened and looked more relaxed and rested.If you use too much, then your make up could melt - just to warn you.Overall I'm not sure if I would buy this again, as with time I moved to more high-tech products. But on the other side I remember, that when I had been using the Hauschka products, my skin was in better condition (but it could be the case I was younger ;)).Currently I'm switching back to his products, as I am disappointed with pricey, super-tech products or luxury products in my bathroom.I replaced creme de la mer with Hauschka rose cream (muuuuch better and cheaper), mascara with Hauschka volume mascara and my skin is showing the results ;)

Mascaras are must have in my makeup bag. I can live without blush, lipstick, even eye pencil, but no without mascara.I think I might have tested zillions of mascaras - some even more than once, but wasn't able to find anything "decent" enough to give fine result, reasonable staying power and good quality.I tested super expensive mascaras like Helena Rubinstein, Burberry and Chanel to cheep ones - Astor, Inglot, etc.While I noticed that some expensive mascara are superior in quality, the general rule is that price is meaningless. You can get expensive garbage or treasure.This review is regarding the new version in navy, triangular shape tube. If it comes to this mascara, it will not give you dramatic effects nor length, but if your natural lashes are ok it will enhance them beautifully. It gives definition, some volume, some length and glossy, healthy finish.it is too wet after opening (for my liking), thus might give you a bit of clumps for a week or two, but after that the separation and definition is just great. In addition to that, I have noticed that condition of my lashes improved. They are not falling out, got more elasticity and gloss. My eye doesn't feel "tired" in the evening, as they were previously, when using drugstore or luxury mascaras.The most important thing is the mascara does not flake or run, even in the evening it looks exactly the same as in the morning (of course if you avoiding touching your eyes). I had may issues in the past with most of the mascaras - my eyelids are oily thus most of them just smudged and run after couple or hours, while the most "stubborn" ones cracked on my cheeks. not the case - I have no idea how they achieved that, as the mascara on lashes is soft and creamy.There's just one con I have noticed so far - if it have contact with water it runs. Rain, grass sprinkles, anything - it won't resist.
