Hands up if your passport hasn’t seen the light of day in forever. Yup, us too. If the words “red list” send a shiver down your spine and you’re spending far too much time scrolling through #wanderlust posts on Insta, Dr. Hauschka might just have the ticket. A skincare ticket, that is – not a flight one…
Launching just in time for summer staycays and getaways, their new limited-edition ‘Skin Care Passport’ features mini versions of their hero products to take you on the ultimate face and body-transforming trip, guaranteed to leave you looking and feeling your very best. Don’t be surprised if your glowing skin fools people to think you’ve actually been away – you’ll look that radiant and rejuvenated.
Just like a passport, our skin is unique, and the way in which we take care of it is incredibly personal. But when it comes to the key steps, there are a few skin staples and ingredients that benefit us all and provide deep down nourishment and goodness. For over 50 years, Dr. Hauschka has been creating some of the best all-natural, organic products in the business – using ingredients grown in their very own garden and through sustainable, ethical partnerships – so you can rest assured that your skin, and the planet, is in the best possible hands.
So, sit back, relax, and enjoy your journey as we take you on the ultimate great-skin trip with just six stops.
First Stop: Makeup Remover
First things first, and that’s removing your makeup, which is why our first stop is all about the ‘Make-Up Remover’. Gentle enough to use on the delicate eye area, it uses precious rosewater grown in Afghanistan alongside extracts of fennel, eyebright, and fast-absorbing oils to melt away makeup (yes, even waterproof mascara) without stressing out skin. Plus, thanks to sesame and sunflower oils, it even nourishes lashes and brows and leaves skin silky soft and smooth.
Second Stop: Cleansing
Next, it’s all about getting rid of all that daily dirt and grime to create the perfect base on which to apply your products. With two cleansers to choose from – a milk and a cream – it couldn’t be easier to wash away the day. Plus, when used as a pair, you’ve got the perfect double cleanse situation.
Start with the ‘Soothing Cleansing Milk’ to gently cleanse without disrupting the skin’s delicate acid mantle. Formulated with calming, nourishing ingredients including jojoba and almond oils and Anthyllis, it won’t strip skin of its natural oils or leave it feeling dry and tight. Follow with the ‘Cleansing Cream’ to really get deep down into pores with the gentle exfoliating powers of creamy sweet almond meal. It also contains the topnotch medicinal plant extracts of chamomile, calendula, and Anthyllis to protect the skin’s natural hydro-lipid barrier, revitalize, and calm the complexion.
Third Stop: Toner
It’s time for a quick toner stop, which is a key step you should not be skipping. Not only does it help your skin absorb your treatment products better, but it also works to refine pores, balance moisture and oil levels, and boost the renewal process. Thanks to Anthyllis and witch hazel, this “Facial Toner” also enhances elasticity and tone and provides a hit of refreshment, making it the perfect skincare journey pick-me-up.
Fourth Stop: Bronzer
Ending the face part of our trip is the glow-getting ‘Translucent Bronzing Tint’. Doing just what it says on the tin, it gives skin back its glow and adds radiancy for the ultimate sun-kissed look. Used alone, mixed into your moisturiser, or on top of your foundation, its tinted mineral pigments, olive oil, and plant extracts will leave you looking like you’ve spent the day on the sand and not sat on the sofa…
Fifth Stop: Body Booster
We’re now entering the body care zone, because why should our faces have all the fun? Not only does the ‘Lemon Lemongrass Vitalizing Body Milk’ smell like an exotic holiday thanks to extracts of Italian and Argentinian lemons and lemongrass, but it’s packed with super hydrating ingredients (quince seed extract and olive and jojoba oils included) that replenish moisture levels, nourish, and fortify skin all day long.
Final Stop: Hand Care
Our journey comes to an end with the heavenly ‘Hydrating Hand Cream’, which gives mitts some much needed TLC after all that non-stop washing and sanitizing. A nourishing blend of beeswax, wheatgerm oil, blackthorn, and Anthyllis, it deeply hydrates and softens sans greasy residue, and its nifty travel-friendly size means it’s perfect to keep in your bag for whenever your hands need, well, a helping hand!
