Skincare enthusiasts who appreciate the value of a really good quality face cream have been keen to spread the gospel about celeb favourite, The Rich Cream from Augustinus Bader.
Not one for the bargain hunters among us, the multi-award-winning moisturiser costs between £71 and £225 for a pump action bottle in the brand’s blue and bronze livery.
But, packed full of fancy-sounding ingredients, the cost doesn’t seem to be a deciding factor with over 450 skin cream fans on the website enthusing how the luxury formulation is worth every penny.
The Rich Cream formula was hand crafted by Professor Augustinus Bader in his own laboratory: Professor Bader is a globally recognized biomedical scientist, physician and one of the foremost experts in the field of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine.
Developed to support cellular renewal to dramatically improve the complexion’s appearance, the pricey but popular face cream also claims to help reduce the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks, while also increasing firmness, tone and texture and calming redness and irritated skin.
What is clear, is that the ‘must have‘ moisturising cream has built up quite a fanbase, with many shoppers insisting they use it daily.
On the website, one enthusiastic fan wrote: “My skin has never felt or looked so good. I’m sure my wrinkles and fine lines have improved. I can honestly say I will never use any other products on my face. If you’re looking for a cream that actually makes a difference to your skin, this is it!”
A second submitted a five-star review, saying: “I am addicted to this rich face cream. I’ve been purchasing for the last three years and I’m not going to stop. I wake up and my skin feels plump and my fine lines have definitely softened. People comment on my skin all the time.”
The Rich Cream also seems to work on users of all ages, with one younger user saying “I love this product so much, I am only 23 and know this will be a product I continue to use. I can already see hydration improvement I have very naturally dry skin and travelling only makes it worse. I apply the rich cream at night only and have seen my skin slowly regain elasticity.”
Another delighted user said: “This is the best moisturizer I’ve ever used. I’ve just started using it and have been stopped twice and asked what I’m using because both said my skin looks so healthy and glowing! And that has not happened before and I’m 60 yrs old.”
Users who discovered the difference after using the high-end moisturiser can save money on future purchases by subscribing to the company’s auto-replenish feature, which takes the cost of the 50ml bottle down by £45.
