Common in herb gardens, lemon balm grows to be a strong, bushy plant about 60 to 90 cm. tall with oval, intensely green leaves with serrated edges. It forms the very picture of lush vegetation. Growing in tiers, the leaves emit a lemony fragrance when rubbed. The key ingredient in Dr. Hauschka Melissa Day Cream, lemon balm is known for its mediating properties and is able to strike an effective balance between the opposing forces within oily, dry and sensitive areas of skin.

The best day cream ever!!!
The day cream is the best day cream ever. Get right in to the skin, leaving nice and fresh scent on it. Not oily or greasy feeling. The skin absorb it right away and you can feel very rejuvenating.

Absolutely love it!
I lucked up on this moisturizer when I got sunburned last year during a trip to Mount Shasta. A local health food store was selling test packages of the Melissa Day Cream. This is the first moisturizer I have found that doe snot make sensitive, combination skin break out. I am close to 50 years old and have almost never used any moisturizer at all for that reason. I highly recommend this one, leave the skin to do its thing at night and stick with the Hauschka general cyclical concept.

WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE ABOUT THIS JEWEL?!!
Santa Fe, NM
Is this the greatest light moisture cream on the planet for those of us with sensitive combo-oily complexions? Answer: A resounding YES! I'm fifty years young and until I decided to give this Melissa Day Cream a try I had not found a moisturizer yet that didn't break me out (sooner or later). I put a small dollop in my clean palm and tap the moisture dollop with light quick taps of my fingers. Then I use light upward strokes and smooth the moisture into one side of my face. I repeat this scenario for the application of moisture to the other side of my face. If I have a particularly dryer area on my face, I may dab a bit extra only there at that locale. Never oily feeling yet it calms, soothes, and really does create just enough hydration for the skin so that the skin knows its taken care of and doesn't send more oil to the surface like the skin (a very intelligent organ!) is prone to do when the surface of the skin is stripped by too-harsh products. If you never moisturize (with the absolutely appropriate moisture for your skin type) then the skin is going to be predisposed to have its sebaceous glands sending extra oil to the skin's surface - a never-ending perpetual cycle which just takes the skin into unhealthy territory! And at night, after cleansing, do what the Dr. Hauschka experts so wisely advise: go to bed with nothing on the face -- letting it take a breather and (re)calibrate on its own sans product. Of course, I generally always put eye cream on - and I love their Regenerating Eye Cream and apply every morning and every night. Try this Melissa moisturizer and vow and stick with it -- I suspect if you do stick with this you shall see and feel the wonderful difference this product (and all of the Dr. Hauschka product line) makes. I'm picayune and a real stickler about efficacy and quality. Every single Dr. Hauschka product I have used has always, without fail, won my very-hard-to-come-by seal of approval.
