Now is the time for everyone to think about their summer skin as the dark cold months come to an end in England (Thank God!) Summer clothing never looks good on dry dull skin. Forget about the holiday diet, anybody looks super covered in glowing plump skin.
Having sensitive dry skin I am always in search of new products that will enrich my skin. I was delighted to be able to review Weleda Skin Food as I have heard so much about this product it would be rude not to give it a go. If it is good enough for the celebs then it is good for me.
Weleda skin food is a super rich cream that deeply hydrates and protects. This cream is rich in essential fatty acids, Vitamin E and organic pansy which is known for antiseptic properties. Rosemary leaf extracts offer a mild antiseptic and anti-inflammatory.
This cream is super thick and I expected a greasy residue yet it leaves a lush, plump matt finish on the skin. There is a barrier effect but I like this and expect this as protection and continuous nourishment. It is not sticky, greasy or slimy just simply there and feels protected.
A little goes a long way, I love this as it is such good value for money.
I was very sceptic of the name "skin food" but this has left my skin glowing and enriched.
This product does contain Lanolin which triggers alarm bells for some people but many if you ask why they have no idea and are not allergic to it themselves. Lanolin is wax secreted by the sebaceous glands of wool-bearing animals. Lanolin used by humans usually comes from sheep that are raised specifically for their wool. It has been used for many years for nappy rash and sore nipples through breastfeeding because of its barrier properties.
Skinfood contains beeswax which is superb for moisture and a natural glow. It is anti-allergenic and anti-inflammatory so actually soothes irritated skin. This makes it a valuable ingredient for natural products for sensitive skin, skin prone to allergies, rosacea and eczema. It also acts as a layer of protection for the skin from environmental irritants and harsh weather.
It very much depends on individual preference with super food. It can be used as a facial cream, body cream, hand cream. The ingredients are so rich in nutrients that it will benefit all, I have even used it on my scalp for psoriasis and on my dry ends on my ponytail.
Do you use Skinfood?
How do you find it?
Love and gentle hugs
