Weleda, the power of nature – Products Worth Reviewing

What is it about the scent of fresh rosebuds or the invigorating feel of soft petals touching your cheeks? There’s something magical in the power of nature and when you combine nature with science, something unique happens – you get, Weleda. Weleda is a leading manufacturer of skincare products using ingredients completely derived from nature. With Weleda, they believe in the powerful effects of what natural ingredients can achieve, and you can see the wondrous results for yourself. When I was searching for a new skincare line to try, I knew I wanted something that was safe for my skin and didn’t contain ingredients that would eventually harm the planet.

After an extensive search, I came upon Weleda. I knew they made great baby care products since I’ve been using them on my son since he was born, but I knew little about their adult skincare line. So I delved a bit more into their adult skincare line and was surprised and happy to know that they apply the same philosophy to their adult skincare products as to their babycare products. They take great care in providing natural, organic, and pure ingredients that help target specific needs of the skin. I found out that they actually have several skincare products to choose from and several specific lines that work specifically with the areas that you need help in. For instance, they have products for sensitive skin, for youthful skin, for first signs of aging skin, for aging skin, and for extremely dry skin. Each specific line of products uses specialized ingredients chosen for their protective and enhancing powers so you don’t have to guess which product will work for you. Since Weleda had already sent me their babycare products to try and review, I was super delighted when they sent me some of their adult skincare products to try as well. I was already interested in learning more about their products and started using their adult skincare products right away.

The products that Weleda sent me to try were the Wild Rose Smoothing Day Cream and Smoothing Eye Cream and Almond Soothing Facial Oil. The Wild Rose skincare line combats the first signs of aging by using organic rosehip seed oil which naturally contains powerful antioxidants Vitamins A and E as well as unsaturated fatty acids. As Weleda describes their organic rosehip seed oil, ” because this remarkable oil works in harmony with your skin, it helps stimulate its natural healthy functions and soften fines lines – all to counter first signs of aging. Your skin can hold on to its elasticity and vitality longer.” With such powerful words as that, I was eager to try their new skincare products and since their ingredients were ingredients that I recognized, I knew it was okay to give them a try.

With Weleda’s Wild Rose Smoothing Day Cream, I used it exclusively instead of my other face cream so that I can see the results. Upon initial application, my skin felt smoother and softer and the dry areas on my face were softer and definitely well-moisturized. The cream itself comes out rather easily and it went on smoothly and without a greasy feeling as you would expect most creams to feel. Because of the colder weather upon us, I was really surprised to see and feel the difference between my old facial cream and Weleda’s Wild Rose Smoothing Day Cream. The Wild Rose Smoothing Day Cream also seemed to have evened out my skin tone and created an overall balance between dry and oily areas. The Wild Rose Smoothing Eye Cream did the same to the areas around my eyes. Although I can’t say that my eyes look 20 years younger, I do feel the areas around my eyes tighter and they don’t look as tired. Both the Smoothing Day Cream and Smoothing Eye Cream were easy to apply and the cream absorbed quickly and pleasantly – and the scent is gentle and not overwhelming. You can definitely smell the roses but it’s not overpowering which is a major plus for me.

With Weleda’s Almond Soothing Facial Oil, their almond oil is rich in unsaturated fatty acids and Vitamin E. As a component for their Almond Soothing Cleansing Lotion and Facial Cream, I only tried their Soothing Facial Oil which I used after I washed my face. The soothing oil is meant to calm and nourish the delicate skin while gently restoring your skin’s natural balance. The Almond Soothing Facial Oil is pure and simple in its ingredients, but because almond is such a powerhouse in the antioxidant area, there really is no need to include a bunch of unnecessary ingredients. It only contains organic sweet almond oil, plum seed oil, and blackthorn flower extract. And that’s really one of the main reasons why I like Weleda so much. They’ve done years and years of extensive research on the powers of natural ingredients and what naturally-derived ingredients can do to nurture, purify, and enhance your body’s own healthy capabilities. At Weleda, they believe that our own natural capacity to be healthy can only be enhanced with natural ingredients in our lives.

Weleda currently makes a great assortment of products for both adults and children. Their products feature familiar ingredients such as pomegranate, rosemary, roses, almond, witch hazel, calendula, chamomile, sesame seed oil, and so forth. If you’re interested in trying products that are made with natural ingredients instead of synthetic, then you should really look into Weleda’s products.

You can find Weleda’s natural products at most natural grocery stores and certain Target stores and I’ve also seen them on Amazon.
