Dr Hauschka- tried & tested

Natural products your thing? Holly Sands visits Dr Hauschka’s new centre

The promise
A well-known brand of all-natural skincare products, the Dr Hauschka line has been available at Dubai’s Organic Foods & Café for some time, but only now has a treatment room opened at The Greens branch of the health-conscious store. Three treatments are available, starting from a 30-minute “Discovery” facial.

Step by step
We’ve plumped for the “Time for Me” 60-minute treatment, which includes cleansing, massaging and a soft brushing that our therapist is keen to point out is for “lymphatic stimulation” rather than lymphatic drainage. Essentially, we should be left with clean, radiant and deeply hydrated skin, without the use of any conventional exfoliations or extractions. Initially, we’re a little disappointed to learn we won’t be having our blackheads squeezed, but we soon forget all about it. As promised, even as we lie with a mask on, our therapist never leaves – massaging our hands, legs and head while it does its work.

The result
Our skin feels indisputably plumped from all the hydrating creams and masks. We’re also impressed with how un-blotchy we are – unusual for a facial.

Pros
Our skin stays hydrated for days, and we’re tempted to start using the products.

Cons
It’s a little pricey for an in-shop treatment. But we’re already saving up for the next one.
