Dr Hauschka Cleansing Milk
Favourite product of the week
Drum roll please…
Dr. Hauschka cleansing milk. To be honest, I’ve had this product for about a month now, and 3 pumps (morning and night) has kept my skin feeling supple and fresh. After experiencing THE most frustrating issues with eczema around my eyes and the odd patch of dry skin here and there, I’ve had to be super careful when using skin care and make up. I have been back and forth to the doctors for around a year (possibly more) and no emollient, cream or anything helped.
The only thing that I found helped was the suns UV rays, after sunning for the one week it was hot this summer my skin had improved, only to go back to (which was now) normal when the british weather returned. I realised I was actually becoming more and more down about my eczema. Not being able to wear make up was the worst. Obviously, being a make up artist this is really important to me as well as trying new products! Eyes are my most favourite feature to make up as well so being restricted in this area was really upsetting.
Anyway, sob story over, I have now got normal (still as tad sensitive) skin! From basically wearing no make up all summer and following a strict daily skin care routine, my skin slowly started to relax and breathe. The itchiness and red areas faded and I was left with a blank canvass. Only, I have to be really careful that the eczema won’t flare up again.
This is where Dr. Hauschka’s cleansing milk comes in, it is great for everyday use as it’s completely natural and specially made to be kind to sensitive skin. It can be used massaged into the skin and splashed away with water, as well as, removing tough eye make up using a dampened cotton wool pad. It’s quite pricey at £23.45 but well worth it, especially for me! I will be using this constantly throughout the cold winter months, religiously making sure the devil itself (eczema) doesn’t come back!
