Last March, fresh off of Paris Fashion Week, a friend told me about a new cream that would completely transform my skin. As you can imagine I hear about ‘magic’ creams pretty frequently and they almost never live up to the hype. It came recommended by a friend whose taste and judgment I trust, though, so I decided to give it a try. What a journey it has taken me on!
When I first picked up Augustinus Bader’s The Rich Cream I wasn’t sure that it was making much of a difference. I did love the texture – which is incredibly luxurious and easily absorbed – so I decided to keep using it. When I finished off the bottle my skin looked smoother, but I chalked it up to some recent weight gain and didn’t repurchase.
After a few days without the cream I noticed that my skin had lost its extra luster, so I gave it another shot and followed the directions faithfully. By the end of my second bottle I was absolutely hooked!
It works so well that it has completely changed my skincare routine. My first step is a resurfacing compound (that I’ve perfected in a lab, more on that later!), followed by The Rich Cream and eye cream, plus sunscreen in the morning. That’s it! When it’s particularly cold and dry, like it was in Aspen over the holidays, I layer on a facial oil as a last step before bed.
When Augustinus Bader invited me to be a part of their Dallas launch, I jumped at the chance to partner with them and learn more about the innovative ingredients in their products. Both Augustinus Bader Rich Cream and the lighter-weight original cream utilize TFC8 Complex technology, an ingredient initially used to treat burn victims, to support your body’s natural renewal process and visibly transform your skin in just 27 days.
Have you tried The Cream or The Rich Cream yet? If you’re stuck between the two, The Rich Cream features a blend of decadent oils, while The Cream is highlighted by a bit of Vitamin A which makes it fantastic for acne prone skin and gives it a weightless texture.
Try it for yourself!
