Augustinus Bader The review of the cream

It can be hard to figure out which products are worth your money in such a saturated beauty space, but here are two telltale signs: if celebrities recommend the product without getting paid, and if beauty editors, who are sent free products to test regularly, let’s say they would spend their money on it, the product is likely to be worth a place in your routine.

The Cream by Augustinus Bader (for combination and oily skin) and The Rich Cream (for dry skin) tick both of these boxes. Word of mouth testimonials from The Cream have given the product cult status. In fact, it was recommended three separate times in I Swear By This, a franchise where creatives share their must-have beauty products.

“I felt like this product came out of nowhere; like a day, it popped up and everyone was recommending it. I have very sensitive skin, so I’m generally reluctant to try new products, but I’ve tried. When I woke up the next day, I was a believer. Everything everyone says about this cream is true. The price is much higher, but it’s really worth it. ” – Grace Pae, celebrity makeup artist

“This has become central not just to my routine, but to the routine of many of our customers. We were the first platform to launch this product and it was really exciting, the whole experience of discovering this beauty, the Holy Grail. It has been the best-seller since it was launched. ” – Cassandra Gray, founder of the Violet Gray beauty e-commerce platform

“If it’s good enough for burn victims, it’s good enough for me. It’s expensive, but for some things you can’t really put a price on it. Also, I’m not using that much. My girlfriend buys it, so it’s all over the house. Basically, when it’s not there, I use it, so I don’t slap myself.

“This is an interesting product because it has become the hot chick thing. They sell it to The Row; is that. Every two or three years, there is such a product. I don’t even know if it’s celebrity driven because, with anything getting as big and popular as this one, it’s just because it’s good and it works.

“Skin care and beauty are so personal. You can’t just have beautiful packaging and marketing. It really has to work and there has to be an element of word of mouth. This criterion does not exist in other categories “. – Chris Black, writer, consultant and co-host of the podcast How long gone

Given all the hype the product has received, I decided to give it a try myself. Below, my Augustinus Bader The Cream review.

The formula

In 2008, Augustinus Bader, a professor of applied stem cell biology and cell technology at the University of Leipzig in Germany, formulated a wound gel that treats third-degree burns without surgery. From this turning point, the homonymous line for skin care was born. The ethics behind Bader’s work is the idea that your skin doesn’t need an endless supply of new ingredients.

Our skin contains stem cells, which have healing and regenerative properties. However, according to the research, in order to trigger the self-renewal process, the environment must give the green light to stem cells to do their job. If they don’t receive signals to activate, the skin’s stem cells remain dormant.

Both creams are formulated with Trigger Factor Complex, which contains vitamins, peptides, amino acids and lipids, ingredients that nourish the environment and signal dormant stem cells to wake up. Once the body’s stem cells are activated, the healing process promotes skin care benefits such as reducing redness, fading hyperpigmentation, and minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The results

After years of hearing about the brand, I decided to give it a try to see if the cream was really as good as people say. I have combination skin prone to dehydration and dark spots, so I chose The Cream instead of The Rich Cream. The brand recommends using the product for at least 27 days (the time it takes for cell turnover to occur). They also suggest using it on its own, with no other skin care products aside from the cleanser. However, I have decided to incorporate The Cream into my morning and evening routine. After cleansing, I would apply the product before stacking the other serums.



The cream worked well with the other products in my routine. Its light texture glided smoothly onto my skin and the formula did not dry out sticky: there was no grease residue left. My skin looked (and looked) plump after application and absorbed quickly. After a couple of weeks of using The Cream, I started noticing a difference. My skin, which usually appears dull and very dry in the morning, was supple and felt dewy. My stubborn dark spots were beginning to fade. Overall, my complexion looked healthier.

I still have a couple of weeks left to hit the 27 day milestone, but The Cream has quickly become a staple in my routine. Yes, it’s expensive, but due to its clinically supported formula and proven performance, I think it’s totally worth it.
