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.

I purchased this product on advice from the clerk at Whole Foods, who said she uses it. I have sensitive skin and have been having trouble finding something that is not drying on my face. This product stung my face in a pronounced way. It felt like I had little knives or cuts all in my face (which may be the case unfortunately) and the product is penetrating into this and something in it is stinging. It is also not hydrating. The product has a strong herbal scent which is medicinal, and it is a bright yellow colour which stays a bit when you rub it in (although I didn't find this aspect of it unpleasant). I had to wash it off 10 minutes after putting it on and put on my Life Brand sunscreen which, at $5 for a big bottle, is the only thing that is somewhat neutral and soothing on my skin that I currently have in the house. I think this product goes overkill with the herbal ingredients. Its ingredient list is generally quite good in terms of having few weird chemical things, which is why I bought it, but it does have alcohol in it, so maybe that is what is stinging my skin. Anyway, I think this might be an all right cream for someone who doesn't have sensitive skin, but if you do, beware!

I hoard this whenever Wholefoods has them on sale. I use this on my face after I was diagnosed with cancer. I had to get brain radiation and that mean losing my hair and itchy scalp. But this cream saved me. I applied it to my forehead after each radiation treatment. And when I got bald, to my scalp. I didnt get radiation burn or burnt scalp ans went through 1 tube. I know it’s quite expensive to be used for such a large area such as the scalp. But it was all worth it. I didnt even get scalp irritation. For the face, this also works great. But you have to get used to the rose scent. This is my favorite moisturizer.

Currently the range is called “Eye definer” and my pencil eyeliner is in #00 Nude. I bought this because of the shade - light cream “nude” beige, ie not the stark white type which I find never flattering and so oldschool (eyeroll). Also, because of Dr.Hauschka skincare brand. And to check if my HG light nude Babor eyeliner still is the best choice (it is). So, the shade is noticeably lighter and cooler-toned than Babor’s which makes the Hauschka less flattering on the eyelid and the inner corner (where my Babor gives a nice uniform color correction and a flattering shade lift). Mind, i’m fair - nc10. In that, shadewise the Hauschka would look good only on the lower inner rim (like a kohl). So it is definitely not remotely as versatile as the Babor. The texture is waxier (in a bad way) and doesn’t blend well (like, stippling with a finger), the longevity is poor. It feels uncomfortable on the inner rim - too waxy. So, it is bad in every way that the Babor is so good.The Ingredients of my eyeliner reminded me of my beloved JI’s pencils (which are perfect but the range lacks a similar nude shade) and deceivingly promised a comparable quality:Hydrogenated Jojoba Oil, Mica, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Canola Oil, Sclerocarya Birrea Seed Oil, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Pyrus Cydonia Peel/Fruit Wax, Diatomaceous Earth (Solum Diatomeae), Glyceryl Caprylate, Anthyllis Vulneraria Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Bark/Leaf Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Fragrance (Parfum)*, Citronellol*, Geraniol*, Linalool*, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891).
