Dr. Hauschka Skin Care is pretty bad-ass on many levels. Aside from offering holistic skin care and makeup, they are doing their part to help end world hunger by donating a portion of their proceeds (when you buy a Dr. Hauschka trial kit) to Heifer, an international program which is set up to help end world hunger.
*Although I acknowledge Heifer’s efforts, I do believe their fundages could feed even more hungry people by educating and teaching the ways of a vegan diet in third world countries. My two cents.
Okay ladies, ready to get excited? Dr. Hauschka has mascara ($23.50) in the most amazing fabu colors (aside from their various shades of black and brown): royal blue, golden green and aubergine (purpley goodness). Not only is their volume mascara cruelty free (amen!) but they are also smudge resistant and contain neem leaf extract which helps strengthen your lashes.
If you’re a liquid liner kind of girl like I am, watch out! They have a smooth vegan eye liner ($16.95) which also contains neem and is perfect for those with sensitive skin. It strengthens and conditions and lasts throughout the day. I have a soft spot for this particular product. This vegan eyeliner was one of the first vegan beauty products I had ever tried back in the day (’twas a gift from my sugar booger).
Also, on the makeup side of things, their liquid concealer ($21.95) is the shiznit and contains all-natural mineral ingredients and therapeutic botanicals to sooth redness and irritation.
Dr. Hauschka has a very dope, user friendly website which is easy to navigate. They offer a wide variety of skin care and body care and you can shop by skin concern, season, lifestyle, mood or ingredient. Check for ingredients when reading product descriptions. Some contain honey and beeswax (which I realize some vegans use and some don’t). Dr. Hauschka is like fine dining for makeup. It’s a lil’ on the pricey side but well worth it… so get your boyfriend to surprise you with some holistic goodies for your birthday.
