Hello lovelies! I'm going through an it's too cold to be in the bathroom' phase at the moment. Is anyone else feeling me? I'm wanting to be in and out in a flash. Nothing says a relaxing bath like shivering your tootsies off and don't even get me started on the race to get your pyjamas on whilst still hugging the towel. I was kindly sent some skincare goodies from Weleda and as there were a few bath related products, I was hoping they would make spending time in the bathroom more enjoyable. After all, their motto is 'in harmony with nature and the human being'. That sounds pretty relaxing right? Lets see how I got on shall we?

Weleda promise
-certified body and facial care
-Free of synthetic preservatives, fragrances, colourants and mineral oil derivatives

Weleda Almond Sensitive Skin Body Wash*
Weleda claim that their new almond body wash gently cleanses and cares for the skin. It's a mild  body wash and has also been approved for skin intolerances. At first I wasn't too into the scent. It's a no frills marzipan fragrance and I'm usually a floral kinda girl. Surprisingly the scent didn't linger around and it actually started growing on me. I don't know if you girls have this problem but my legs become so itchy and sore after shaving (thank god it's winter). I was hoping this would calm them down a little and it really did soothe them. This was so hydrating! It felt like I'd moisturised afterwards which was crazy as I put my hands up. I haven't moisturised my body in god knows how long. It's just too cold and ain't nobody got time for that! Overall, I'm surprisingly happy with this and I'd actually purchase it due to how hydrating it was.  

The Almond Soothing Facial Cream *- For Sensitive Skin
This almond soothing facial cream is said to be gentle and aims to calm delicate skin. It contains organic almond oil to restore the skins balance and enhance protective layers. With it being an intensive moisturiser for dry and sensitive skin, my boyfriend ended up as a guinea pig here. I could see the fear in his eyes when I told him I had a cream to try out but he kindly let me smother his face in it. The cream isn't too heavy although it does take a while to rub in. Initially he said that the cream was stinging. Perhaps his skin is too sensitive to use this cream on. Looking back we probably should have done a patch test first. Stinging aside, his face did feel moisturised and the redness did settle down after washing.

This was definitely more my kind of thing. I was obsessed with The Body Shop's Wild Rose hand cream until I ran out about two weeks ago. The smell is just incredible so when I opened the box up, I couldn't wait to get my fix. Ahhh I was so pleased with this. A rose scented soap. This soap is plant based and made from 100% vegetable sources making it so gentle on the skin. I'm not going to lie I did get a little protective over who could use it. Don't use my soapy goodness! The soap is a creamy colour and ... well a bar of soap. It cleanses, you know the score. It's one of those soaps that leave a squeaky clean feeling but strangely doesn't feel stripping. I'm a lover of pretty soaps in the soap dish so I'm happy to have this box on display. 

Wild Rose Smoothing Facial Lotion *- For Normal & Combination Skin
This wild rose facial lotion aims to soften fine lines, preserves skins youthful vitality and stimulates skins growth processes. As with the other Weleda products, it contains natural ingredients such as the oil of organic rosa mosqueta seeds which aid in the skins regeneration. I must admit I'm a little picky when it comes to face cream. It can either make or break me or should I say break me out. I was willing to give this a go as I already had a rose scented body, I might as well have a matching face too. This was such a light lotion and glided on lovely. I did notice however that it left a slightly oily residue which wouldn't be a problem but I already have oily skin. It surprisingly didn't break me out but personally I think my skin would be more suited to their specialist skincare range. This is probably one for me to use when my skin is feeling a little dehydrated.

What I love about Weleda is that they understand that we are all different. They've got us all covered by introducing eight different skincare sets that tackle all of our problems and that's just their facial range. There's even one for men so you're boyfriend won't feel left out. If any of you are suffering with dry skin during the winter, definitely try the Almond Body Wash. I couldn't recommend it enough. Also Weleda like to use natural and organic ingredients making a lot of products suitable for vegetarians and vegans. If you'd like to see for yourself I'll leave a link here.

What's your thoughts? Have you got any winter skincare saviours?

  1. The body wash sounds great, I find my skin is quite dry after showering lately. I totally get what you mean about being too cold to stay in the bathroom long! I'm quite lazy about moisturising my body in this weather too!

  7. LOVE Weleda! That shower gel is a pretty awesome win for skin, no irritant SLS in there! It's so tough to find shower gel/cream products that will actually nourish skin, but this one, looking at the ingredients WILL absolutely do the trick :)
