I wear a lot of makeup. I use the Cleansing Milk to remove it. This is how I do it: 1) I use wet wipes like SANTE's Facial Cleansing Tissues. 2) I wet my face, neck and cleavage (I wear foundation there as well) and put two pumps of the Cleansing Milk on and remove it with a gentle facial sponge. I splash with warm water. 3) There will still be some eye makeup left. I get a damp cotton pad and add one pump of the Cleansing Milk. With it I take the rest of the makeup off. Afterwards I will clean my face the Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Cream and use the Dr. Hauschka Clarifying Toner. Then it's off to bed (without moisturizer!). The Cleansing Milk is the most gentle and effective organic makeup remover I ever tried. I love the feel of it on my skin. Also I know that after I used it all(!) of my makeup is gone. One bottle lasts me for about two months.
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.
Treatments -John Frieda - Daily Nourishment leave-in fortifying spray

I usually spray this on my hair before brush it. The stray does make brushing my hair easier. But I think most leave-in conditioners do that. So a cheaper product would do as well... I like the smell of John Frieda's spray though.
