However, the wealth of scientific research behind Augustinus Bader’s formulas did pique my interest. With over 30 years of experience in stem cell research, Professor Bader developed a groundbreaking technology that helps to activate the body’s own repair system. Instilling this technology into every formula, Professor Bader promises his streamlined range will visibly reduce the signs of ageing and environmental damage. I tried the latter for the recommended five weeks, here are the four key benefits I noticed after using Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream, £135.00…
It Plumps And Firms
By far the most noticeable difference I found with this cream was how plump and firm my skin felt. Within a matter of days my skin felt, for want of a better word, thicker. Having asked the brand about this, I’ve learnt that this is down to the patented Trigger Factor Complex, which is at the centre of all Augustinus Bader formulas. High in natural amino acids, high-grade vitamins and heavyweight skincare ingredients, this innovative complex works with your body and active dormant stem cells.
It Offers Long-Lasting Hydration
My skin kept that moisturised, cushioned feeling all day. While some creams seem to disappear and your skin can feel a little bit dry by the end of the day, this one doesn’t. On some days I even forgot to give my skin it’s four o’clock spritz of Caudalie Beauty Elixir, £8.40.
It’s Rich But Not Heavy
As I’ve mentioned I have slightly oily skin, so I was worried that The Rich Cream might be, well, too rich for my skin and would lead to a breakout. I was pleasantly surprised by the light texture, which didn’t cause any blemishes or block my pores. There is the option of Augustinus Bader The Cream, £135.00 for those who want a featherlight version.
It Doubles Up As A Primer
An unexpected benefit from The Rich Cream was that it works as a good primer for makeup. As it plumps and hydrates skin so effectively, you’re left with this gorgeous, natural-looking glow. On several occasions I found that I could just touch up with a bit of concealer – my absolute favourite is Hourglass Vanish Airbrush Concealer, £32.00.
