I have brought this more then once, I always come back to this cleanser, although it does not work the way a traditional cleanser, as someone who has clogged pores and sometimes minor pigmentation issues this cleanser is wonderful I can get oily if I don't properly cleanse most of the time my skin is combo with problems mostly in the t-zone,(clogged pores around my nose and lip area so nasty! ) First and formost pat and roll the greasier your skin is the longer you should do the pat and roll technique, and it is critical if you use makeup to pre-cleanse with either the lavender bath product or as I do with a cleansing oil-once a week I do the Oil cleansing technique, this and use bobbi brown gentle toner, you don't have to use all the dr.haushka products but be gentle and critical of what you place on your skin! I use to load my skin up with aha and glyoic acid products but you don't need to use 5 different products with the same aha and acids in them! I also use the mature reintegrating serum, love this.

Very expensive, but SUCH a treat! Wonderful almond scent (contains ground almonds). It's not intended to be used as scrub, but I also use it as mild scrub. If you mix it with some drops of water or facial tonic, it turns into a cleansing milk which can be spread easily on the skin. It's moisturizing and builds the protective the lipid barrier of the epidermis. I love it, only downside is the high price... but if you mix it with water, it lasts much longer!

I have been using this product a few times a week in the morning and I am overall very happy with it. Even though I have very sensitive skin, I feel like I need a tiny bit of exfoliation because it is also dry and can look at bit flaky. The tiny bits of almond meal do a great job at gently exfoliating. I use the 'press and roll' motion that is recommended in the instructions (google it!), so it doesn't aggravate my redness. I concentrate on the areas where I have breakouts (my jaw line). And I think it has helped a little. It is somewhat expensive for the quantity, at about $30 for 1.7 oz.
*** Update: I find that my skin looks better when I skip this product, in terms of redness and pimples. I'm not sure why...

This is not what I expected a cream cleanser to look like. It It looks like a granular exfoliant so I was really tempted to scrub my face with it the first time I used it. I didn't have too much experience with the press and roll method and I could feel my skin chafing from pressing too hard and I didn't wash the cleanser off properly. My face looked blotchy and I seriously wanted to give up. But now that I've learned how to use it, I'm really impressed. My face feels soft, cleansed, smooth and hydrated. No blotchiness either. Really ladies, you have to use this product properly! I would like to buy another tube except that mine lasted only three months and its really pricey. I'd rather stick to Clarins Extra Comfort Cream which cleans just as well but lasts twice as long.

I love this cleanser, it cleans my skin, making it feel softer and look better. at first my skin purged a little, nothing too bad, just a few small spots that covered up easily. This lasted for a week or two, and then my skin cleared up and now it looks great! I use this along with the toner and normalising day oil.

I like natural (paraben free) products, and I prefer cleansers and moisturisers in tubes. I have dry, sensitive skin. This cleanser is OK, I didn't hate it, I didn't love it. I didn't particularly like the smell or the consistency, or the oily film it left on my skin. But if it was the only cleanser in the world I'd use it.
If it works for you, a little goes a long way, so it would probably be fairly good value for money.
I bought a Dr. Hauschka trial set. Very glad I didn't invest in full-size products. Dr. Hauschka uses far too much alcohol and most of their products inflame and dry out my skin. It seems unnecessary as other natural products like REN don't use alcohol as a preservative.

this cleanser uses almond meal as it's choice of exfoliant, which is an interesting choice. It is also an interesting combination of cleanser and exfoliator that i was assured would be fine to use daily, but i have my doubts. However, almond meal is not preferred to synthetic beads as it can lead to microscratches on the skins surface as the surfaces of almond meal is not smooth (read; MICROSCRATCHES). the smell is incredibly off-putting as well, i had to hold my breathe as i smeared it on my skin. it is incredibly thick, and expensive.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Hazel
The entire Dr. Hauschka line gave my skin the most horrendous breakout it has ever had. At first I thought it was purging, but no, I ended up with cystic acne that it has taken me 6 months to get rid of.
Perhaps this line would work for someone who is not acne-prone, but if you have problem skin, I would definitely steer clear!

This cleanser is fantastic. I have been using it about once a day for almost three months. I was initially sceptical as to how clean it would get my face (I have sensitive combination skin) but I am now a convert.
When I use this, I first wet my face and then squeeze out about a centimetre onto my palm. I then add a little water to make a paste which I pat over my face. I then gently press the cleanser into my skin. There's no need to scrub; the granules gently buff your skin as you press them in. Sometimes I leave the cleanser to sit on my face for a while as it contains some nice essential oils. Then you simply wash it off.
The first time I used this, I was shocked at how good my skin looked. It was even toned and glowing. Even stranger, my skin felt more soft and plumped up. I haven't experienced any irritation or break outs.
One drawback is the packaging. The foil tube crinkles, making it hard to get all the product out.
Also, this is more expensive than cleansers I'd normally buy. I bought it for around AU$24 on ebay. As much as I love it, I don't think I could justify paying the retail price, so I will be heading back to ebay to repurchase.
Dr Hauschka's Cleansing Cream may be a little more work than the average cleanser, but I think it is really worth the effort for the way your skin looks and feels.

I used to have oily, spotty and very sensitive skin. Then I switched to all-natural and organic skin care and makeup over two years ago. I had heard of Dr. Hauschka and their concept back then, but stingily decided against buying their expensive products. Instead I went with cheaper organic skin care products by Alverde and Alterra. My skin got somewhat better back then. It became less sensitive and only my T-Zone remained oily and spotty. Needless to say I was not satisfied and have been looking for a different skin care routine for the last two years.
I then remembered Dr. Hauschka's concept. I sent them an email explaining about my skin and asking a few questions I still didn't understand about their concept. They answered really nicely and even sent me a package home. In it were a plan for my skin care routine, should I decide to switch to Dr. Hauschka, plus trail sizes of the Cleansing Cream, the Clarifying Toner and the Normalizing Day Oil. I'm really really glad I received this package not only for the free trail sizes included. Using Dr. Hauschka products is almost a science. The plan included in that package helped me a lot to understand how to use the products as did a video on YouTube that showed the Press and Roll Technique.
As instructed I use the Cleasing Cream in the morning and in the evening after removing my makeup. I first wet my face, my neck and my cleavage. I put a hazelnut sized amount in my hands and mix it with water. Then I press and roll the Cream gently onto my face, neck and cleavage. I repeat the pressing and rolling. Then with warm water I gently remove the Cream and afterwards splash my face with cold water. Note that the Cleansing Cream is only meant for your face and not for your neck and cleavage.
You should never use the Cleansing Cream for exfoliating. In my email I had asked the Dr. Hauschka team why there wasn't an exfoliator in their range. They explained that by regularly exfoliating one's skin, the skin is going to produce more and more callused skin. When stopping to exfoliate, your skin is supposted to stop doing that and become nice and smooth again. I was very skeptical, but it turned out to be true.
The Cleansing Cream feels nice on my skin. Its fragence is unusual but interesting and not unpleasent. It does leave a greasy residue behind. It is supposed to do that.
I was very pleased with the way face changed after the first month of using nothing but this three products. It became less oily and spotty plus I feel like it became stronger and less sensitive.
After using up my trail sizes I repurchased the Cleansing Cream and the Claifying Toner. I didn't however get the Normalizing Day Oil, because aside form the T-Zone my face became somewhat dry. I find that the Melissa Day Cream works better for me. By Dr. Hauschka I have also bought the Cleansing Milk for removing my makeup, the Cleasing Clay Mask, Rejuvernating Mask and the Facial Steam Bath. I am very pleased with the entire range.
