My Number One Beauty Essential

If you have been here a while, you know that Augustinus Bader’s The Rich Cream is hands down, far and away, my number one beauty necessity. My skin just loves this moisturizer. I have very dry skin and up until discovering this several years ago, I hadn’t found anything that hydrated it quite as well. I make sure that no matter what other products I am testing or trying, I get this on my skin at least once a day. It is my true holy grail. Leaves skin dewy, hydrated, radiant, and glowing. And on top of that, there are the brand’s incredible anti-aging properties. I have been using this cream for years and have noticed such a difference in not only hydration but also an improvement of fine lines and wrinkles and more even skin tone. It is the best moisturizer I’ve ever used.

Professor Bader (the person)’s story is incredible. He is a globally recognized biomedical scientist and physician and one of the foremost experts in the field of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. He’s spent 30 years developing technologies to help the human body heal itself. In 2008 he developed a Wound Gel that heals severe skin traumas without the need for surgery or skin grafts. This is what inspired Augustinus Bader skincare.

As I mentioned above, this is THE best moisturizer I have ever tried. But you already know that, as I talk about it pretty much constantly. Today, I wanted to talk about some of the ways it is a must-have for the holiday season.

Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream
Restores Dry, Dehydrated Skin.

This is the most obvious one. During the holiday season, we are out and about more than usual. Parties and events are FUN but all of that champagne (plus turning the heat on!) leads to dry, dehydrated, tired-looking skin. This product brings my skin back to life. At night I always make sure that I take all of my makeup off, and if I’ve had a big night I add an extra pump (usually I do 3 pumps but 4 if I feel like my skin needs a little extra) of The Rich Cream. I will massage it into my skin and really concentrate on areas that get dry and dehydrated (for me it’s my forehead and cheeks). And I also really love packing on a little bit under my area. I have noticed that this makes a big difference the next day.

It mixes beautifully with foundation.

For a dewy, radiant look, I like to take just one pump of The Rich Cream (keep in mind I have already used it as my moisturizer at this point) and one pump of foundation (this works really well with the RMS foundation). I will swirl the two products together on the back of my hand and voila… perfect, radiant, no-makeup, makeup. (You can see how this looks in the reel that I filmed for the brand).

It’s the perfect highlight!

Last but not least, I will take maybe a half of a pump and pat it on the high points of my skin AFTER makeup. Like as a final step. Cheekbones, browbones, collar bones. It’s gorgeous and makes you look like you are just naturally GLOWING.

    Love to see it! I started using this moisturizer thanks to your recommendation… and then I started recommending it to everyone, so now my mother in law, sister in law, and cousins all use it too! It really is the best. It’s especially nice of use in the winter time.
