I used Dr Hauschka products several years ago. Overall, I did not see any visible effect from this product on my face, and do not have very good impression of this brand. I used it only because the brand claims to be natural and can adjust skin's metabolism. I had serious acne back then and hoped to cure my acne with this brand.

I have seen only a slight effect of this product in controlling acne. However, it did not completely solve my problem. I have learned a lesson from those years fighting acne: most likely, one has an endocrine problem if he/she has serious acne occurring regularly. Do not waste any money on skincare in this case. Go see a doctor and ask for medicine.

1. Dr Hauschka Clarifying Toner

This toner claims to minimize the appearance of blemishes. From my previous experience, it has only a very slight effect on reducing the acne. So if you have serious acne, do not expect much from this toner.

I was told that with this toner, you do NOT need apply any moisturizer at night. If you have young and oil skin, a toner may be enough. However, do not rely on it too much. You still need a moisturizer most of time.

2. Dr Hauschka Rose Day Cream

This is very greasy cream. It is hard to extend it over the face. It may work for very dry skin but not for combination or oil skin. My entire face looked oily with this cream on.

3. Dr Hauschka Revitalising Day Cream

This cream is less greasy and more watery than day rose cream. However, it is very hard for the skin to absorb. The yellow cream is floating on the skin, making my face look yellowish. During cold winter time, this cream may not be strong enough for protecting the skin from driness. My general impression is that this brand cannot balance oil and water well.

4. Dr Hauschka Dr Hauschka Renewing Night Conditioner

Very expensive product. I had a high hope of this product to cure my acne. It seems that if your skin does not have any big problem, it can improve your skin condition. However, given its price, you can find much better products with the same price.

5. Dr Hauschka Eye Revive

I remembered that this product has a good cooling effect on eyes. It kind of works. However, it is expensive with low performance price ratio.

6. Dr Hauschka Lip Balm

This is a very good product. The lip balm is not greasy and not too expensive. My only issue is that balm is not as easy to apply nor as sanitary as lip stick.

7. Dr Hauschka Eye Balm

The eye balm is easy to apply and non-greasy. Not bad for a daily eye cream.

8. Dr Hauschka Soothing Cleansing Milk

I do not like this product. It cannot generate any foam, and thus cannot remove completely oil and dirt on the face.

Overall, Dr Hauschka is too mild to produce any visible or good effect.

9. Dr Hauschka Clarifying Day Oil

Never like face oil. I like serums more which can infuse water into dry skin.

This brand is easily accessible since it is sold at Whole Foods. Highly recommend to get some samples before buying any full size.

Xyzabcd8 thank you for posting. Could you share how old you are and what your targets were with using the brand. I have used some of their products and loved them and would continue to use them if they werenít so darned expensive but am in my middle 60s, and have very dry but sensitive skin. My feedback on the products you mention are:

Dr Hauschka Clarifying Toner Ė I liked this and it smells lovely. I would continue to buy this but its quite pricey and prefer to make my own diy toners with ingredients that I learned from EDS however it worked well for me. I didnít see pore tightening, but thatís not an issue for me and I use Retin A for 30 plus years. Plus itís a spray toner too so depending on size of your face I always find it problematic.

Dr Hauschka Rose Day Cream Ė I didnít find it greasy Ė in fact quite the opposite but I love the smell of this product and have bought it when money has been good. It really does moisturize dry skin. I didnít find it sitting on top but it did definitely absorb and plump out the areas of my face that are really prone to dryness so is a winner for me personally! Plus I like the pump dispenser too.

Dr Hauschka Dr Hauschka Renewing Night Conditioner Ė this is an oil free product and the thing I loved about it is that it allows the skin to breath. I love massaging this product into my skin and whilst my skin is quite reactive to things Ė this gave me no bother at all. Plus my skin felt great immediately afterwards and in the morning I went and looked in the mirror and my skin felt beautiful and soft too.

Dr Hauschka Eye Revive Ė I donít recall it having a cooling effect on the eyes, but I did like it as an eye cream. However I must admit that I also liked another product at the time so opted for that. I didnít see anything stand out about this product.

Dr Hauschka Lip Balm Ė havenít used this product.

Dr Hauschka Eye Balm Ė I found this product quite heavy. It reminded me a bit of Eve Lomís balm and took experimenting to work out how much to apply without being to heavy handed. It didnít absorb well for me on a few occasions.

Dr Hauschka Soothing Cleansing Milk Ė I love this product and have repurchased several times. It isnít a foam cleanser but a milk product that smells wonderful. Its just the right consistency as well and I found I could massage into problem places like the side of my nose etc. I loved this and have repurchased several times and continue to!

Dr Hauschka Clarifying Day Oil Ė I didnít like this product. Hard to pinpoint exactly why. Plus mine came with a leaflet detailing a massage routine that looked seriously flawed to me.

I also have used a few of their steam bath products which I love. Their rose and lavender ones are so nice and I swear I see an immediate result from them afterwards.

I was in mid twenties when first using the brand. I had combination to oil skin with serious acne. Back then my skin was robust, not thirsty, and never had any allergy.

I have not used this brand recently.

Thanks TheresaMary's useful information. Our experience just presented Dr. Hauschka's effects on two very different skin types. Hopefully this information can help other interested users to make right decision.

for Dr.Hauschka, I've been using it for about two years, and I wanted to repair my sensitive skin, but I didn't see any effect. His lotion is very greasy. Although I am dry skin, I still feel heavy. Then I start buying lamer, and I get the desired effect.
