Review: Augustinus Bader, The Rich Cream

It is very rare that I find a moisturizer worthy of repurchasing, primarily because I find that most moisturizers generally do the same thing but also because I get sent several moisturizers to test every month. Earlier this year I was sent The Rich Cream by Augustinus Bader, I was intrigued by the brand's high-tech approach to skincare and ingredients that claim to activate your own stem cells, boosting them into healing mode. I started using The Rich Cream day and night in June (I also used it under my eyes in lieu of an eye cream) and in just a few days there was a visible improvement in my skin. My skin appeared luminous and plumped, and my typically oily t-zone looked less oily. I also tend to get the occasional blemish every now and then, but I honestly did not have one single pimple or clogged pore while I was using The Rich Cream. I continued using The Rich Cream until August when the bottle tragically came to an end, and I couldn't believe how good my skin looked.  In fact I was almost annoyed at how good my skin looked considering a 50ml bottle retails for $265 (which is undeniably pricy).

I moved onto another moisturizer as I normally would, but I couldn't help but think about The Rich Cream. The way the luxuriously creamy yet weightless formula sunk into my skin, the way my skin glowed, the way the bottle's magnetic cap clicked in the most satisfying way. The best way to describe my skin while using The Rich Cream is happy and healthy. My skin had never felt more balanced, and I loved being able to use just one product for all of my post cleansing skincare needs. I quickly realized that although this cream came with a hefty price tag, $265 for a day cream, night cream, and eye cream is not that outrageous and absolutely worth it. Augustinus Bader's The Cream and The Rich Cream are now available in a 30ml bottle for $160, which is a bit more digestible if you're still not sold on shelling out the price for the full sized bottle. It's also worth mentioning that part of the proceeds fund the Augustinus Bader Foundation, which provides free hydrogel treatments to clinics that treat burn victims.

If you decide to give either of the Augstinus Bader creams a try, I would love to hear how it worked for your skin.
