I’ve heard so much good stuff about the Augustinus Bader Rich Cream that I’ve built up in my mind it has some kind of magical properties. This luxury moisturiser from German science boffin Professor Augustinus Bader is said to not just soften and hydrate skin, but to renew the skin at a cellular level. Using The Rich Cream every day for a month is said to dramatically change your skin and make it more youthful, but I’m more interested in the claim it can erase dark spots and hyperpigmentation. The ghosts of spots past haunt my very pale skin and I’m always looking for treatments that can boot them off my face and in to the afterlife once and for all.
I’m disappointed The Rich Cream doesn’t seem to be making much difference after two weeks, but I’ll keep going and see what a month can do. I have the trial sizes in both the rich and the non-rich version (the latter is slightly runnier and much easier to apply). The full size Rich Cream is £215, so if you do get life-changing results with repeated use I can see why people would pay that. In the meantime it’s making my skin incredibly soft, and it’s the perfect pre-makeup moisturiser for even foundation and fresh looking skin.
