Augustinus Bader Launches Face Oil

Once there was just The Cream and The Rich Cream. Then came the introduction of the Body Cream with its firming and cellulite reduction properties. Several months later, The Cleansing Gel. All of these products have been instantaneous hits with our customers. Everyone at Bellacara uses and loves the creams. But you don’t have to just take our word for it – Kate Bosworth said her “face craves it,” Kris Jenner calls it “crack,” and Hailey Bieber buys another bottle before the last one empties out.

When I heard Professor Bader was launching the Face Oil, I was thrilled. I love a face oil. This oil has the added benefit of not leaving the skin slick or shiny. It absorbs into the skin and leaves the skin supple and hydrated. Since it’s formulated for all skin types, it won’t clog pores.

The oil is perfect for daytime use as a lightweight moisturizer or as a serum underneath The Cream or The Rich Cream. I have started using The Face Oil during the day and the Rich Cream at night. It is the perfect primer for my Westman Atelier Vital Skin Foundation. My skin still glows, but the makeup stays on all day.

If you love The Cream but need a bit more hydration, or you’d like to use The Rich Cream only at night and lighten up during the day, you should definitely give this a try. I think you’ll love it.



  • The latest from Angela
I have been a beauty junkie for what seems like forever, but before I did anything about it, I went to law school. (Yes, my life is a little like the reverse of Legally Blonde.) Then, I worked as a prosecutor in Sonoma County after which I moved to the DC area with my husband in ’97. I served as Majority Counsel to the Senate Banking Committee followed by a year-long stint at a lobbying firm. You get the picture. It was then that I decided to act on my dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Finding my favorite beauty products proved to be impossible without stepping foot in a mall–the horror. So, I decided to bring my favorites to Alexandria. A few trips to New York and a flight to France and Bellacara was born in March 2000.
