Weleda Skin Food Review

Do you know how some girls are obsessed with lip balm. They buy every lip balm out there and are always applying it to their lips. I'm the same way with hand moisturiser. I've been told many times that I'm always putting something on my hands. It's not only because I need to protect my hands from this harsh weather but there is something comforting about massaging my hands with cream and breathing in the calming scent.

As someone who has tried so many creams, I'd like to share my views on Weleda's Skin Food, which they kindly sent me to try*.

Firstly, I must comment on Weleda's brand. I have a lot of respect for Weleda because it has a long heritage of being ethical. I'm never taught on the ethical side of business on my degree so I always find companies such as Weleda very inspiring.

So, onto the product. The consistency of Skin Food is very different to many moisturisers on the market. Because it is mostly made up of sunflower seed oil, it melts instantly onto my skin and it's quickly absorbed without leaving a damp and oily residue.

The smell is very calming thanks to the extracts of Chamomile and Calendula. It also has a mild grassy smell, reminding me of spring, which I am really looking forward to as it has been one long winter!

As soon as the cream is absorbed, my hands feel very soft and the calming scent lingers on my skin.

Surprisingly, this great product doesn't come with a big price tag either. A 30ml tube costs £4.95 and the 75ml tube is £8.95 on the Weleda website.

Have you tried Weleda Skin Food? Let me know what you think.


*100% honest as always :)

This is by far the best product I have ever used for my skin, not sure if I can use anything else now! Big big fan :) Far too much to say so please feel free to read my review if you wish :)

Hand cream is also my addiction, I always have so many on the go, I have only tried the Pomegranate range from Weleda which I was given as a gift. It's a brand that I need to take a closer look at. Thanks for the great review :)
