Weleda Skin Food

55 comments
Having really loved the Almond Hand Cream I received from Weleda at the last PegasusLive event, I was thrilled to find another product from the brand in this year's goodie bag. Skin Food is not exactly what you would call a new launch. In fact, it's been going for ninety years, and the formula has remained unchanged in all that time. So they must be doing something right!

Weleda Skin Food 1
 
An incredibly rich and thick cream, Skin Food is a bit of a multi-purpose product. It's designed as a heavy duty moisturiser, to rescue particularly dry areas such as hands, feet and elbows. However, you can use it all over your body, as an overnight treat for your face or even to tame the ends of your hair. Like all Weleda products, it's certified 100% natural and is ethically and sustainably produced, right down to the fully recyclable packaging. A fashion week staple, its list of celebrity fans is impressive and includes Suki Waterhouse, Alexa Chung, Erin O'Connor and Helena Christensen.

As soon as you squeeze this product from the tube, you just know that any pesky dry patches are going to find their days are numbered pretty quickly. It's seriously rich, and takes a fair amount of working in. I also find it takes a long time for my skin to drink it up completely, so it's probably not one for those mornings when you're in a hurry! However, it's brilliant to slather on hands and feet (or anywhere you need a good moisture hit) before bed. I've been using it like this on my hands, and by morning they feel smooth and baby-soft.

Possibly my favourite thing about this product is the smell. It contains, among other ingredients, chamomile, rosemary and orange, and the fragrance is a delightful mixture of all three. It's not overpowering at all, but it does linger, which I love.

This is a fabulous product to keep in your stash for those times when you need a bit of extra help with dry skin. You can pick it up from health food stores, pharmacies or Holland and Barrett, or order online from Weleda.

Have you tried Skin Food?

  3. I don't have very dry hands or feet, but the name sounds like a promise of it being perfect for anyone who has.

  27. I own skin food and love it for it's moisturizing qualities, but I don't really love the smell. It's such a great product, though!
