A Nintendo colleague invited me to the opening of his girlfriend’s new natural cosmetics shop. Of course, I was there with bells on!
Her shop sells the Dr Hauschka range of cosmetics and toiletries. I’d never heard of Dr Hauschka before, but as I was gazing at the shelves a Nintendo friend came up to me and was so enthusiastic about the brand, telling me how once you’ve used the lip balm, you’ll never want to use anything else. Coming from a guy, I thought it must be magical stuff! Unfortunately the lip balms ran out within 30 minutes of the shop opening
After speaking with the owner, Doreen (who is super lovely and speaks English as well as German), I bought some of the rose face moisturiser. This goes very well with my rose obsession right now. After having a wonderful sample of rose moisturiser in my JolieBox last month, I’ve been keen to see if other rose products will help my skin. It’s said that rose calms angry skin, and with the sample, I found this to be true. I have used the Dr Hauschka cream once or twice (I want to use up what I have opened before moving onto something new) and I can say that it really works wonders on my skin. My redness has faded, and my skin is just silky smooth. It comes in a small tube, but a tiny pea-sized amount covers your whole face so it’ll last me a long time.
They also have massages and facials there, too! A facial was around 40 Euros, and I’m considering getting one when pay day comes around. You can add a back massage onto the end of the facial for a little extra.
Everyone who went to the shop bought something there and I’ve not heard a single complaint from anyone. Mister bought a different face cream, a friend bought the lip balm, my flatmate bought the foundation.. and all say they love their products. I was given samples of the lemon grass body cream and the scent was lovely and lasted all day, so I think I’ll be getting some of that next time, along with the lip balm!!
The shop’s name is Wohlgemut naturkosmetik and you can find it at Vogelsbergstraße 28 60316 Frankfurt am Main – on the edge of Bornheim, and near to Friedberger Platz tram stop. **If she is giving massages out the back, the shop might be closed but on Fridays from 5 to 7 she is open purely as a shop so you can be sure she’ll be open then.
