Tried and Tested: Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream
Does the cult face cream live up to the hype? Our in-house beauty buffs find out…
Beauty's best-loved product for three years and counting, The Rich Cream's cult following continues to take the industry with its miracle-working properties. It was the face cream that gave Augustinus Bader its unshakeable reputation, said to visibly turn back time with its unmatched ability to renew - a result of the founding professor's revolutionary stem cell technology. From reducing myriad signs of ageing to enhanced skin texture and free radical protection, this now-vegan moisturiser's claims are countless - so Liberty staff dedicated four weeks to the product they've been desperate to try…
My skin looked and felt noticeably smooth, clear and plumped by morning
I really loved the texture of this cream – as luxurious and nourishing as the name suggests. It worked great as a moisturiser layered between serum and sun cream for daytime, but I was really impressed by the magic worked overnight in place of my normal face oil – my skin looked and felt noticeably smooth, clear and plumped by morning, so much so that people commented on it. I believe the word “radiant” was used!
I used it without my usual serums and oils and it still delivered
My skin has been hard to handle this last year; dehydrated with patches of redness and even a small patch of eczema appearing under one of my eyes. The Rich Cream seemed to tackle most of these issues and has left my skin in a much better condition. My forehead seems smoother and overall I am a lot more glowy. I used it without my usual serums and oils and it still delivered - making the investment even more worthwhile.
I don’t think I can live without it now!
My skin loves me again! The cream was super thick and hydrating yet not oily at all. I have combination skin and was nervous about the cream being greasy but it melted into my skin effortlessly and left a beautiful glow. I also feel as though my skin has become much more plump and I can definitely see a difference in the texture. I’ve really enjoyed using it for day and night alongside my usual routine and don’t think I can live without it now!
