Hooked on Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream Light


Looks like I’ve found my one and only… in regards to moisturizers that is. I’ve been on a low-key hunt for the perfect moisturizer for a while. Flipping through YouTube videos, blog posts, and real-life stores galore! [gasp]. The trouble is… every person’s skin is so unique; I’ve come to find you really need to do get your hands dirty (clean) with this one to find out what really works best for you.

That being said… I’m still going to do a quick review of Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream Light because it’s done wonders for my skin and hey, maybe it will work for you too!

I’ve almost completely finished my first bottle of Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream Light. I wanted to wait to review this product after using it for a while. They say you never really know someone until you live with them… truth is, you never really know a foundation till you’ve lived in it. [Yes, folks, I did try to use a play-on-words. And yes, I did laugh out loud while typing this.] Point is, now I feel fully capable of reviewing this moisturizer for you all.

First off, I want to clarify that Dr. Hauschka has two rose moisturizers that are quite similar. The Rose Day Cream and the Rose Day Cream Light: The formulas of these two products have the same ingredients and benefits, the only difference is that the “Light” version is, exactly as it sounds, a lightweight formula of the original, beloved Rose Day Cream. I chose to go with the Rose Day Cream Light (as per recommendation by the lovely skincare specialist at my local Whole Foods Market) because I was first trying this product in the Summertime when all you need is a lightweight moisturizer. In the cooler months ahead, I plan on purchasing the original Rose Day Cream.

The most essential ingredient in Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream Light is of course rose! The rose water used in this moisturizer helps to balance and soothe sensitive skin. Take it from someone who has really sensitive skin: this moisturizer would be great for any skin type. For my fellow sensitive skin ladies out there, the Rose Day Cream Light doesn’t have an overwhelming scent and it didn’t irritate my skin in the slightest! I’ve noticed that my complexion is more even-toned now, and I attribute that to this moisturizer. Other key ingredients include marshmallow root extract and the essential oils including: sweet almond, avocado, and sesame. These ingredients are all extremely hydrating and nourishing.

My skin has never looked better since I’ve been using Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream Light. The lightweight formula is truly able to retain the moisture you need in your skin. After applying, my skin feels nourished, moisturized, and lively. It retains a “rosy” glow for hours after applying thanks to that rose water! This moisturizer leaves you with a subtle dewiness but it doesn’t make your face feel greasy or weighed down, so it’s a great base for any makeup you’ll be applying later. I also wanted to mention that I’ve been less prone to breakouts while using this moisturizer, which is always a good sign that something’s working!

This moisturizer hits all the bullet points in my book:

  • Filled with nourishing ingredients
  • Soothing moisture
  • Great for sensitive skin
  • Less prone to breakouts
  • Skin balancing
  • Lightweight feel

Dr. Hauschka, you’ve got me hooked.
