With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, we may decide to pamper ourselves and Dr Hauschka have some excellent products I was delighted to try out.
Rose Nurturing Body Oil 75ml
On opening the box, I found the product to be packaged in a glass bottle with pump action top to expel the oil. I hadn’t been aware of this product range previously, so it was nice to try something new and different. I squeezed a few drops of oil onto the back of my hand to test it out to start with, and I was amazed by the beautiful fragrance of this nourishing body oil. I then had a shower, and after partially drying off I took out this product and pressed out dots of oil onto my body and gently massaged it into my skin. The scent of this body oil really is amazing, especially in a steamy shower room, I felt like I was in a spa! The oil feels luxurious and it was easily absorbed into my skin, leaving it silky smooth and with a long lasting and beautiful floral scent!
I had hurt my neck in the day and had a muscle spasm, so I asked my husband to massage a little of this oil into my neck and back for me and I can’t tell you the relief it brought me. The scent has a big impact for me as it is so calming and fresh and the oil really nourishes the skin. I could see this being a perfect product for someone to give their loved one for Valentine’s Day, I most certainly would be pleased to receive it or share it with my partner!
I was also impressed to read that this product is suitable for delicate skin, including babies’ skin. Perfect for baby massage and I would have loved to have used this when I had my little tiny babies, as we really enjoyed the baby massage with ours.
The body oil (RRP: £21), I feel is good for the mind too, relaxing and calming while reviving the senses. The product has extracts of Damask roses, and rose essential oils which soothes, calms and protects sensitive skin. I have used this oil on my skin every day for the past week, and the difference in my skin is unbelievable. Granted, I probably don’t look after my skin as well as I should, so it was in desperate need of nourishment but I’ve never experienced such good results in such a short space of time, so it’s a big thumb’s up from me! My husband was also impressed with it, as he has very sensitive skin, and since massaging my back the oil has nourished and soothed his hands too – win, win!
I can very much recommend this quality product, it represents excellent value for money and I think it would make a perfect gift for Valentine’s Day.
I am now interested to explore the other products on offer from Dr Hauschka.
Rose Day Cream Light 30ml
I have been trying out all sorts of face creams recently, as my skin has rejected the daily moisturiser which I have been using for years. I think since I hit the big 40 everything has started to change! I have fairly dry and sensitive skin usually but can be prone to breakouts. This light day cream mentions that it should hydrate, harmonize and soothe skin – it sure does! It is to be used each morning after cleansing and toning. I thought I would give it a go. I opened the tube and squeezed a little out on the back of my hand – wow! The fragrance was amazing! It states to use a gentle pressing motion evenly into the face, neck and décolleté. I instantly felt fresh and revived, my skin felt smooth and hydrated. It quickly absorbed into my skin and it didn’t leave any greasy residue that I often get from face creams.
This cream (RRP: £30.50) is described as the ideal all day companion for sensitive, as well as normal, dry and irritated skin. My husband has very sensitive skin and I offered him some of this cream to try too. He has also been impressed with the results and is interested to try other products on offer to see if it continues to help him with his skin issues.
It is, as it says on the product description, a light formula. It has made a real difference to my face after only using for 1 week, so hoping that it continues. I reckon it will be perfect in the summertime too, as often day creams can block the pores, and this makes for a disaster zone in the heat of summer.
I found that this day cream is perfect as a base layer before applying my makeup too. It’s definitely a must have product in your daily skincare routine. If you are stuck for a gift idea for the one you love for Valentine’s Day, then this would make a lovely luxurious treat. Especially thoughtful since the product has the beautiful scent of roses – double brownie points!!
