I threw myself into Dr. Hauschka, trying loads of their products, thinking that it was going to be my HG line...but alas, no. This cleanser is horrible! I followed the instructions to the "t" and yet the granules made my mild rosacea flare up and left a nasty-feeling film on the surface of my skin. Afterwards, my skin felt irritated and dirty. And don't get me started on the smell. I'm moving on to greener pastures.

It's in fact very good for those who have a very "clean" diet (vegetarian or vegan) and healthy lifestyle, and young teenagers who desire to maintain a healthy skin and lifestyle. Also, Dr. Hauschka skincare is a very good choice to be incorporated in a skincare regime for ex-smokers trying to reverse the damages nicotines done on skin, and you would notice a significant recovery from using it, togehter with an overall healthy lifestyle change. But it's too gentle for the rest of us who use mainstream, non all-natural skin products and cosmetics, and expect some potent skincare products to salvage the skin.

I couldn't wait for this product to come. What a disappointment it's been!! It doesn't remove any make up AT ALL. Whatever foundation i had on my face was still there, even after 3 times of washing. May be fine for those who don't use any make up, that's not my case. It aslo says to avoid area around the eyes. So what's the purpose of this product, actually? I appreciate it's all natural, but it just doesn't do its job. I didn't like the smell and the texture, it felt like a scrub and my skin is very sensitive. I never use scrubs and especially i don't want to use it on every day basis. I developed more acne in just a few hours after rubbing that over my face. It might suit just well for dry mature skin but not for acne-prone like mine. Won't buy it again for sure.

Dr Hauchka is a particular product for unique skin type's that other products don't fulfill. My personal expierience is i need a cleanser that not only clean's but hydrates and nourishes. I find Dr Hauschka delivers in all those areas. Although initially for some Dr Hauschka may appear expensive, however with the correct techniques and portion control it is very cost effective. Its the combination of almond meal for gentle exfoliation and the moisturizing oils for re-hydration that I find works for my skin best. Being a long term user of Dr Hauschka Cream Cleanser, this product in particular i can thouroughly reccommend.

This reminded me a lot of Angels on Bare Skin by Lush...but with a hefty price tag, and not so clean rinse-off. I have doubts this removed any of my mineral make-up, and if anything, it felt like it left a layer on my skin.
I did follow-up with the Facial Toner (rose), which helped to remove that layer.
I liked the cleansing milk more than this, in terms of this line's cleansers for normal/dry skin.

Have used this product for two weeks now and really love it. I started this product as my first Dr Hauschka's regime.
Skin feels soft and clean.The roll and press took a little to get use to, but now its a regular routine.Do like the aroma.Since using Dr Hauschka's products (cleansing milk, regenerating serum and daily moistorizer.Today I have received a compliment on what lovely skin I have.
This is a first.

Like many reviewers before me, I noticed huge pimples appearing in my chin area after the use of that product, which I usually donīt get. For very dry skin, it may be fine, but even me with actually quite dry skin, which is sensitive and always in need of moisture, this was everything but cleansing. I didnīt even try to remove any kind of even the slightest makeup with it, I just used it in the morning for a gentle cleanse. But even with thorough rinsing afterwards, it leaves such a layer of oils on the skin, that I donīt feel clean, just greasy. I always had the feeling that applying my serum & moisturizer afterwards is kind of pointless because it wont soak in as well as usual. I just bought a tiny travel size to try it out, and I will leave it at that. Not a good product for me. Also, the metal tube doesnīt look pretty after a few uses, just kind of crumpled.

A few years ago I spent the summer near Nice. A lifelong skincare junkie, I was entranced by the wonderful aromas drifting out of the French 'eco' shops. After blissfully browsing around, I came away with some books on green skincare, spent the next week avidly reading about the horrors of chemicals and the following weekend bought starter kits of Dr. Hauschka skincare.
Full of enthusiasm, I gave myself a facial that evening. By the following evening I had cysts on both sides of my chin and 3 days into the experiment I realised that it was not for me.
However, I do continue to use the cleansing cream - not as instructed, but as a scrub, as some others do. As a scrub, I find it wonderfully purifying, it gives me a glow, but ONLY if I follow it with a foaming cleanser. It leaves a greasy residue which I find impossible under make-up; I've even tried using it in the morning, followed by Skinoren if I am at home all day, but by the evening I can usually feel the start of a nasty cyst on my chin.
I did like the rejuvenating mask - but again, only as long as I washed it off. I also liked the liquid bronzer added to a Dr. Hauschka sunscreen, which, strangely, I did not find clogging, although it aggravated a tendency to dermatitus on my neck - a problem I have only just resolved with the help of Avene and Ducray.
In theory, I love the idea of natural cosmetics, but in practise, most of them seem to cause me more problems than they solve. I have recently begun to think that the preservatives they use may be partly to blame for dermatitus issues I have been having on my neck.
Edit 08/2010: I have now replaced this with the Bioderma Sebium exfoliator - a gentle, one step scrub/wash with the addition of glycolic acid.

I am on a complete Dr hauschka skincare regime and this product is one of my absolute favourites. It is not supposed to be rubbed against the skin, you just squeeze out about 1cm of product, rub it in your hands and press it onto your face. Wet your hands and press again while rolling your palms over your face. I have dry, sensitive skin and scrubs irritate my skin, but not this one.
Im in Europe, so I get this for around 15USD and compared to other brands in the natural range like Jurlique and Suki, this is the cheapest AND best.
I only use this cleanser once a day, in the morning as advised by my Dr Hauschka dermatologist, and I love how it leaves my skin clean and soft without any sense of drying. I use the normal toner afterwards and then the liquid moisturiser in the glass bottle even though I have dry skin, and it works great. My skin used to be very very dry, but now it's more on the combination side, which is progress for me. Very satisfied.
The tube is metal and somewhat unhandy, but I suppose it's hygenic. When travelling I squeeze out a few cm into a small plastic jar, so no biggie.

I used this product ages ago and it made my skin greasy and prickly almost. Not good.
But I find that using ground almonds as a scrub everyday works brilliantly and is a hell of a lot cheeper than this.
