My first experience with Naturopathica products was when I reviewed a signature facial at Natural Body Spa in theHoliday Gift Guide.
The esthetician used the certified organic products throughout my facial. When I walked out of the spa, my skin felt moisturized and smooth. So I leaped at the opportunity to review Naturopathica Cassis Ultra Replenishing Cream (value: $85) and samples of the the cleansing products.
“Our approach to healthy skin care begins by eliminating harmful synthetics or skin irritants such as parabens, glycols or sulfates, and then adding clinically proven ingredients like antioxidants and peptides that provide real benefits to the skin.”
In this Naturopathica review:
- I’ll explain whether I saw any results after using the Cassis Ultra Replenishing Cream consistently for one week.
- Offer some advice on how to cope with the $85 sticker price for the cream.
- Tell you about my plan to update you on how well it’s working after using it for a month.
I’m an incredibly tired mom with extremely dry skin. I don’t drink as much water as I should, I get about six hours of sleep a night and I often fall asleep without moisturizing my face. (Just typing that made me cringe!)
So if Naturopathica products can work for my horrible case of dry skin – they can work for anybody. I made a commitment to use the Cassis Ultra Replenishing Cream and the Oat Facial Polish (to get rid of dead skin and brighter my skin) for one week.
You’re about to see some extreme closeups of my skin. You’ve been warned!
For first day I tried the products, I’d been awake since 5 a.m., took a WordPress design class all day, went grocery shopping came home and plopped in the bed. Then I remembered I needed to complete this review, so I washed and moisturized my face. I may have used a little too much replenishing cream. The instruction say a pea size amount.
The Cassis Replenishing cream skin soaked in to my skin immediately. I didn’t need to do a lot of rubbing. When I posted on the Mommy Talk Show Facebook page that I was trying it Saturday night, one of my fans asked about the scent. It has a light scent that dissipated a minute after using it.
The Oat Facial Polish was gently and effective. I shot a video of it on my face, but for some reason the audio is horrible. Sorry!
Overall, my skin is smoother, the dry patches between my eyes are vanishing and when I wake up in the morning my face doesn’t feel like it’s dying for moisture. Quick tip: I also use a dab of cream on my neck and the part of my chest that’s visible with a V-neck shirt. Those parts of your skin need love too!
Save on Naturopathica Products
A jar of Naturopathica Cassis Ultra Replenishing Cream retails for $85 and that could seriously hurt your budget. To save money, you could
- Ask for it as a gift for Valentine’s Day, birthday, Mother’s Day etc.
- Although you’re directed to use it morning and night – conserve your usage. Use it once a day, preferably at night when your skin is regenerating.
- Purchase a set like the Naturopathica Age Defense Skin Regimen Kit (value: $65) so you can sample what works for you.
- Think of it as an at-home spa treatment. For instance, a 60 minute facial or massage is $65-$100. This cream is about the same price and you can use it at home.

I’m going to keep using the products each day including the Aloe Cleansing Gel and update you an album I created on the Mommy Talk Show Facebook page.

Do you think the certified organic products are worth the investment?
Disclosure: I received complimentary products from Naturopathica
to review and provide my honest opinion.
These look like great products! Especially with the harsh cold weather we are having lately!
I’m always on the lookout for great moisturizer products. Alaska has a long winter season (like 7 months!) and I use lotion on a regular basis.
my skin get so dry in the winter here in NY–thanks for sharing–always looking for something good for my skin
This time of year my skin is so dry! This looks like a great product to combat dryness!
I am looking forward to seeing your final review of the products. It seems as if it is worth the cost though.
I can definitely see the difference in your skin. You wrote up a great review and I may have to try them out when I’m looking for future skin care products.
Very interested in seeing your before and after pictures after about a month. I have only recently started using an eye cream. I have a hard time with the idea of spending so much. But I can be convinced 🙂
I’ll have to try it out. The winter weather dried out my skin and creates dry patches on my face. i usually apply Vasoline on certain sections in addition to a moisturizer. Would love to have one product that does the job!
The winter weather is very harsh on the skin so I am always on the look for a great moisturizer. Maybe I will request this a brithday gift:)
glad it;s working for you!!
I have extremely dry skin too so this might be something I can try. I love that it is organic too 🙂
Thanks for sharing. Organic gets my attention. Would love to learn more.
Thans for sharing. Organic always gets my attention. would learn more.
Organic is the direction I want to go with my skin care overall. Our skin isbour largest organ and we put toxins on it all the time. Sounds like you’ve had some great results after only one week. Looking forward to your 30 day update!
WOW. i’m intrigued. i have horrible dry reactive skin.
How does this compare to homemade products? Did you see a real difference? You already have beautiful skin so it is hard to tell.
Winter months are really harsh on the skin. Thanks for the great tips and product information!
Thank for the great tips & product information!
Looks like a good product. Thanks for the ideas on how to save money on it.
Great product, I will have to check it out.
This looks like a thick cream. My skin is so dry year round so I could use this
