It's Amazing

Amazing Cream

I was worried this would be too thick and heavy and cause closed comedones on my cheeks, but that has not happened at all! If anything my skin looks smoother and healthier than it ever has.

Amazing multi-purpose cream

Great on feet

I bought this for my face initially, however, when Covid-19 hit and the nail salons was closed I started using this on my feet. My heals were rough but now since I start putting this on my feet so much better!

Great lotion

This lotion it great. It goes on evenly and doesn't leave an oily feeling. Small enough to travel with. It also dries fast which makes it perfect to use on the go. It has a great scent that is not to over powering. I recommend.

Great item

I love the name and that is what made me try it. Food for my skin. This has made my skin really soft and from drying out. With the cold weather my hands are always getting dried out and this has helped a lot.

Good. Product

Very moist

I took this lotion on a trip recently and surprised how thick it was. It is very moisturizing and thick to put on. That said it seems to work well as I was surprised how good my skin felt later in the day.

Ultra rich is right!

This moisturizer is super thick and rich, but spreads nicely and absorbs quickly without being greasy. And it lasted through the night! I love the scent. It's herbal with a touch of lavender. Not too strong or sweet.

This cream is amazing

The product works on sensitive skin. It is very thick coming out of the tube and I was concerned it might clog pores but it hasn't happened. I have been using this twice a day and my skin looks better than it has in a very long time.

The thickest cream I have ever experienced

This is like the cement version of lotion. It is thick and it's not slippery--just take a bit and put it on your super dry/cracked areas. Feels great! I would definitely recommend for ppl like myself who get very dry hands in the winter

Great product

Great job. Product worked very well. Body was able to get wet and still have moisture in my skin afterwards. I would definitely use this again and again. I would recommend it to everyone. Great smell also.

My skin loves it

Weleda original skin food is amazing! I used it on my hands and it feels great. It's not watery and it has a very pleasant smell. This would be good to keep in the purse or in your car. They are other scents, I can't wait to try them all.

Great stuff

My skin hasn't looked this smooth in awhile. Not sure if it's for every skin type, but it worked great on mine and has kept me free of blackheads. Highly recommend using this at night and then waking up refreshed!
