Dr Hauschka

Dr Hauschka animal friendly luxury

 You may notice a bit of a change to the way I do things. Over the next few weeks I will be weeding out products we use on our bodies, from companies that test on animals/affilianted with companies that test on animals to products that are 100% genuine animal friendly. This is very exciting for me and I look forward to bringing you some amazing products that are here to spoil and pamper you without the connection of harming animals in the making. After each paragraph there is a- if you like you will LOVE- this is a simple example of a popular product that we all know but use animal testing or affiliate with companies that do, compared to a similar animal friendly products. Hopefully this will make the comparison a bit more simple for you. 

Lip balm: I have been patting this on my lips about four times a day. For me that it a lot. This lip balm comes in a cute little pot and provides a translucent shine when applied . It doesn't feel like it is going to slip off my lips which is a BIG plus. The formulation is really creamy and not sticky at all, I can feel my lips becoming a lot more hydrated and soft and plumper. The Dr Hauschka Lip Balm has a really lovely soft floral smell that doesn't reek of synthetics. The ingredients include, Calendula (great for healing) and  St Johns Wort (antibacterial, anti inflammation) It also includes an interesting addition of  Silk which is proven to be moisturising, Ph balancing and protective to the skin. I don't know about you but I love the idea of putting Silk on my lips! This is a highly addictive Lip Balm because of its luxurious feel and wonderful refreshing scent.

As soon as I decided to convert to cruelty free products my brain got thinking to other things that we put on our body other than makeup and moisturisers. So I was really interested when Dr Hauschka showed a deodorant on their website. I just had to give it a try. Let me say one thing, this has GOT to have the most interesting smells I have ever experienced with a deodorant. I really like it, it reminds me of a day spa. I mainly steer towards natural deodorants but I always still get sweaty and at the end of the day the smell kicks in, but there is something really special about this deodorant because I don't get either of these. In fact it could be the end of the day and I notice that I still smell a little of  the nice herby deodorant and not stink. There is Sage and which Hazel in the creamy lotion so perhaps that's the interesting combination I get a whiff of?

I'm sure I have mentioned this a few times, but eye creams are something I have been thinking about a bit more recently. I'm getting to that age where I should start preventing the inevitable signs of ageing. I'm still getting used to the idea of using an eye cream, not because of the age thing ( that was always going to come around) but just the fact that I feel as though I need to LEARN how to use an eye cream. I think I'm doing it properly though. I put a little dollop of the Dr Hauschka Daily Revitalising Eye Cream on my ring fingers and dab it around on the bone in an inward motion. Is that right? I hope so... Ok I have just read the instructions and I am applying it right, good.  This eye cream contains Rose water, marshmallow and calendula to hydrate and soothe. Also pineapple is added to the mix as the 'key botanical', this is rich in vitamins and minerals and reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Points for pineapple!
