In the world of celebrity-adored beauty, few brands have made the impact of Augustinus Bader. The brand prides itself on sitting at the intersection where science meets skincare, and has earned a whopping 76 industry awards in just four years to prove it. 

Every product in the line is hand crafted by brand founder and globally recognized biomedical scientist Professor Augustinus Bader in his own laboratory and contains Bader's patented TFC8® technology, which is backed by three decades of science and research. The result is a range of products like The Rich Cream—an upgraded, slightly heavier version of the brand’s best-selling moisturizer The Cream—which counts celebrities like Jennifer Anniston and Meghan Markle as fans. The Cream is also a Marie Claire favorite in its own right, earning high praise from our team. 

Beyond celebrity praise, The Rich Cream is backed up by clinical results. One trial noted that 100 percent of users said their skin felt calmed and soothed after 12 weeks of use. Similarly, 99 percent of users also found that their dry skin felt hydrated all day long. In short: this is a dream product for your skin during these tricky transitional months when, somehow, it is both boiling hot and frigidly cold on the same day.

But, like most things that have a cult-like celebrity following, Bader’s products all come with a high price tag. Both The Cream and The Rich Cream retail for $280. However, beauty insiders and editors alike have long been aware of the brand’s Auto-Replenishment program, which lets you shop the products for 20 percent off. All you have to do is select the “Auto-Replenish” button at the bottom of each of the product pages, select how often you use each product and how much of it you use, and a fresh jar will magically show up on your doorstep on the best timeline for your lifestyle. You can change the subscription any time and can cancel it after three months for topical products. Oh—and you’ll continue to receive a discount each cycle and receive loyalty points on every purchase.

If you already have a face cream that you love, don’t worry. There are tons of other award-winning products in the line to invest in that celebrities adore. Supermodel Heidi Klum for instance, swears by Augustinus Bader's The Face Oil, which is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and uneven skin tone. The Essence, another top-seller in the line, does away with any impurities in the skin.

Even better than the discount, the brand has their You Shop, We Donate initiative, which allows shoppers to donate five percent of every purchase to a charity of their choosing. Keep scrolling to shop a selection of the brand’s most popular–and highly-rated–products. From an eye cream that increases elasticity to a brand-new face cream that’s been described as a “skin savior,” Augustinus Bader's  lineup is truly worth the investment.
