Simon Cowell and I probably don’t have much in common but one thing we definitely share is a love for products from Weleda. He raves about the Weleda Refreshing Citrus Bath Milk, a product that I’m also very enthusiastic about. In fact, I like everything in the Citrus range, especially the Body Oil.
The latest Weleda products I’ve been using are part of the Almond Collection For Sensitive Skin . Here are my thoughts…
Almond Sensitive Skin Hand Cream
Ingredients: Water, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil, Alcohol, Behenyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Tapioca Starch, Cetearyl Glucoside, Carrageenan, Xanthan Gum, Lactic Acid, Fragrance (from natural essential oils).
I don’t have sensitive skin, particularly on my hands but I still think my hands are benefiting from using this. It feels very silky, nourishing and is non-sticky. It absorbs quickly so you can get on with things straight away after applying it. You get a light scent of almonds/marzipan when it first comes out the tube which quickly fades as you rub it in. My cuticles and nails also feel moisturised from this hand cream.
Almond Sensitive Skin Soothing Facial Oil
Ingredients: Sweet Almond Oil, Prunus Domestica Seed Oil, Prunus Spinosa Flower Extract
There’s no doubt that going from the cold to the dry, warmth of central heating can play havoc on the skin. This oil is the perfect antidote for that. It can be dabbed lightly on to cheeks under moisturiser/spf to protect against the elements during the day or used in the evening to soothe and calm.
I avoid using oils on my chin/nose as I’m prone to congestion but I love how mild this feels on the rest of my face. I’ve also been saturating my neck with it as it’s slightly irritated. It’s helped to take the ‘heat’ away and heal the area.
The oil itself is light in consistency and has a barely detectable scent of almonds.
As well as coming in a ‘normal size’ bottle, you can also get it in a cute mini travel size.
I just wanted to quickly mention the following as I think it’s a rather lovely idea. Weleda offer 1:1 consultations with mini-treatment in your own home with one of their Wellbeing Advisors. It doesn’t cost anything and there’s no obligation to buy any of the products. Weleda make a lot of different ranges so this is a great way of discovering the products that are right for you. It’s a particularly good service if you’re house bound for whatever reason. I recently met one of the Wellbeing Advisors and thought she was well-informed, kind and couldn’t imagine her doing a hard sell on anyone.
Weleda are also looking for people with an interest in natural products to become advisors for them. If either of these options are of interest you can call 0115 9448698 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
