I would buy this product again, but only in the winter when my skin tends to be drier. I have a friend who swears by this stuff. I can tell when she is using it because her skin looks great. The Quince is a better formulation for me. I wish I could use the rose every day... I love how it smells and it imparts a wonderful rosy glow! Update: this product may work for you. It ended up giving me blister like acne - very painful. I react poorly to Hauschka. I am very sad about it. Hope it works for you!
I love this toner. I have not used toner in years. This makes my skin glow and keeps it from breaking out at the same time. Other products were either too much oil or dried my skin out leaving flaky skin. This toner keeps it balanced and I don't feel that I have to slather a cream on to make up for what the toner took away. I just use a tiny bit of the Quince Day Cream in the morning and I love it!!!!! You only need a tiny bit of Hauschka products! The best I have ever tried. I tried the asprin toner recommended from the "most helpful" review, but didn't notice any benefit. Plus, I was nervous that my system would be digesting asprin on a daily basis...your skin is an organ, after all. Update: I have allergic reactions to Hauschka products. I discontinued using. This works great for some - not me.
I have started using this cream. I use it in the morning only and after I use the clarifying toner. I use the tiniest amount as it spreads easily over the toner and I pat it in gently, I do not spread it. I must say the toner makes a huge difference when using the quince cream. My skin has a little bit of a breakout in the beginning while it is adjusting, but after a couple of weeks it is getting clearer, smoother and my husband told me one night that I looked like I was 24 - but I am 34! I give this line the credit for that! I also love the fresh smell of this cream. I also love the smell of the Rose, but my skin isn't dry enough to use that and I end up with problems. My skin is combination/normal. Update: I have allergic reactions to Hauschka products. Discontinued using.
Love the packaging. I found this to be too dry and was not worth the $38. I ordered this over the phone, and I think the MA sent the wrong color and I didn't get to test it out. That being said, I think my cheeks looked pretty much the same with the product as it did without. Personally, I like the Alchemy's Quince and Kola cream blush better.
I love this pencil, too. Only $9! It is a very pretty bronze color and stays on very well though the day. I am not a big Mary Kay user, but they do have very nice products.
I can't believe that anyone would not like these. They are the best. My old boyfriend tried to steal them from me - they are so good. These are worth $20. I mean a brow wax costs about $20 USD so I think it saves me money in the long run, if I can maintain a clean brow myself with the proper tools. This is the one cosmetic tool I can't live without. If you don't have one yet, I don't know what you are waiting for. I bought the stainless slant tip. I grabs hair far better than any other I have tried. GO get one right now.

I wanted to like this, but I think the fragrance or something in it made my hands itch. I like ShiKai Borage Dry Skin Therapy better and it is much cheaper, unscented and very natural.

I just bought this from drugstore.com and I really like it. I have tried L'Occitane, Bliss Labs, Aveda, Crabtree and Eveyln and other more expensive handcreams. This feels like it is really doing some good work, not just coating my skin with silicone like ingredients and still leaving my hands dry. This was only $6 and I will be buy more tubes for my desk, purse, etc.

This did moisturize my lips incredibly. I just didn't like the pale pink color - it looked muddy and grey on me. Next time I will buy the clear one.

I like how this goes on, but after a few minutes my lips start to feel dry and the color disappears. I think just about anything would last longer than this. I like the packaging (although it could be a little smaller) and the color is a great natural rosy brown on me, but again feels drying and doesn't last. Prefer gloss.

I like this gentle exfoliating wash. It is great for morning, since I won't use it to take off my eye makeup. Like the smell, too! Skin feels clean and balanced. Update: I think this made me break out like crazy after using for a month. Stopped and switched to Dr. Hauschka. Will give a review on that after I see results.
I bought this and received a sample. The sample I tried gave me little white bumps. The ingredients are far to simple to warrant $55.00. All I can say about this simple product is lots of hype with a big price tag! I prefer Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream for $35 and feel it does a better job on giving me the healthy glow!

I used this product for 1-1/2 years. I really liked it for a long time, and I put up with breaking out. It does give skin a nice glow and I do think there is something valid about the enzymes, but I fell in love with Sundari products and feel that works best for my combination skin.

Glowing luminous skin that isn't greasy. This is really like a toner, it conditions and balances the skin. I would fight my t-zone and my nose would get flaky. So far this keeps everything in balance and I really like the holistic approach.
My all-around favorite lip balm. Love the minty tingle! I have been using it for over 10 years and have bought it for friends - some of which are as addicted to it as I am. Great to use with a lip liner instead of lipstick!
