Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream Review and Swatches

Everyone that has used this skincare says the same thing, it’s a miracle in a bottle! That combined with the price tag, I just about expected nothing short of a miracle from this product for my skin! I avoided even wanting to try this product for the past 12 months… but despite my greatest efforts, I just had to try this. I needed to know just how amazing this skincare could really be…I mean, after all, I am a makeup artist, shouldn’t I know first hand about this groundbreaking skincare? Lol

My initial thoughts…

The packaging is beautiful, I love the glass weighty bottle, the product itself feels so luxe on the skin. It’s a rich creamy oil-based texture, leaving my skin looking glowy and feeling hydrated. It overall definitely feels like a luxury product. The Rich Cream standard size bottle of 1.69 oz is $265 which seems crazy for someone to spend that kind of money on a moisturizer but it has some high claims.

I have The Rich Cream* the smaller 15ml bottle! To start I want to say, my skin is typically on the dry side, I have uneven texture in certain areas on my face, I also have some redness, and discoloration from sun damage. Now, I started using The Rich Cream in replacement of my normal moisturizer. I cleanse my skin, exfoliate, add my serums, then lastly, apply The Rich Cream! I have been using this for about 3 weeks so I wanted to talk about my initial thoughts and how my skin feels after using this for a couple of weeks.

My initial thoughts…This is definitely a rich cream designed for dry/dryer skin types. It is a lightweight formula but somehow rich in substance. Let me explain, so when I first tried this, I dispensed 2 pumps of the cream on my skin, it is not a heavy rich, buttery cream like I had been expecting. It is actually light and spreadable in texture BUT when I applied this to my skin, it feels like a rich weighted blanket on my skin. Very rich and creamy. I noticed that my skin looked super plump all day with this formula. It does not set. It left my skin feeling tacky throughout the day, but in a good way. It felt like my skin was hydrated and staying hydrated through the day from this formula. Some moisturizers, you apply them and within 10 minutes your skin is left dry all over again, and thirsty! This was the complete opposite, I felt as if my skin was super hydrated and happy all day! When evening came, and I went to wash my face and cleanse my skin, I could still feel the skincare working, I had to wash the skincare and makeup off from the morning! Crazy! All together, I am very impressed with this product.

After using this product for 3 weeks, I have noticed my skin truly does see a real difference. It looks more even-toned, my redness has definitely gone down, my skin feels soft and actually hydrated. My breakouts have been less and less. I don’t know guys, I think I really am truly loving this moisturizer. My skin just looks and feels different. I feel like my skin is plumper and feels so much softer.

The Rich Cream* is definitely an investment piece. Would I buy it again, I actually think I would. It gave real results, my skin looks all together so much better. I am truly happy with what this product did for my skin in such a short amount of time. If you ever get the opportunity, I would recommend trying this product if you have dry skin. It really was worth the splurge for me.
