You can never go wrong with Dr Hauschka skincare products!

I have tried them out for a couple of weeks now and I can honestly say that the results are noticeable.

If wishing for something in the Christmas stocking was a thing, I would ask for some Dr Hauschka products.

They have built their brand around natural, high-quality ingredients and also pay attention to how these affect your skin.

Not only are they kind to skin and the environment, they also come in handy 30ml sizes, making them the perfect stocking fillers this Christmas.

For the hair

Love certainly is in the hair! Dr Hauschka’s three-step hair-care routine will leave your hair feeling soft and looking shiny.

The shampoo contains nourishing ingredients such as rosemary, neem and quince, and can be used on all hair types, including coloured hair.

Conditioning is next and to get the maximum shine and silkiness, the producers have used a mix of coconut oil, apple cider vinegar and neem. The end result is a soft scent of vanilla and essential oils.

The last step is hair tonic. Containing birch bark, arnica and burdock, it adds shine and volume to the hair without weighing it down. Including these products in the Christmas stocking will ensure a well-rounded happy hair routine.

For the face

A good skin care routine is essential and can be simple, yet effective.

For a selection of testers to include in someone’s stocking this year, you only need three products to get them hooked on a good routine. A good rule of thumb when it comes to this is cleanse, tone, moisturise.

The Dr Hauschka cleansing cream contains almonds, chamomile and calendula extracts that work together to cleanse, exfoliate, fortify and refresh the skin.

Step two is applying toner, the hydrating base for your moisturiser. Spritzing the Dr Hauschka toner - containing ingredients such as Anthyllis and witch hazel - over your face will leave it glowing with a rosy complexion.

Last up is moisturising. With its thick consistency, the rose day cream is perfect for protecting the skin during the dry and cold winter months. Ingredients are rose, shea butter and avocado oil to maximise hydration.

For the body

If you are looking for something small as a filler, Dr Hauschka has a few nice products to pamper your loved one.

The hydrating handcream ensures some TLC to an area of the body that is exposed a bit more to the cold. It absorbs quickly into the skin and can also be used on other dry skin part such as elbows.

It’s ideal to fit in stockings and to carry along in your handbag.

The lemon lemongrass vitalising body milk contains, you might have guessed it, lemon. The ingredient not only refreshes, but also tightens and firms skin. The scent alone will have you energised and ready for all the festivities.
