New Staple

I’ve only been using this for about a week now, but by day 4 I could see such a difference, especially in the mornings. I started out using this as both a day and night cream, but it’s so thick that I’m going to switch to just using it at night. I have dry - normal skin that tends to err on the sensitive side, and I’ve noticed such a total awakening and rejuvenation in my skin tone in the mornings. No red patches or flakiness, everything is even and bright. The TINIEST little dot will go such a long way. Even knowing this and purposely using a small amount, I guarantee you’ll still take too much the first time you try it. I can’t recommend this stuff enough. Thank you, Weleda!

HOLY GRAIL

I purchased this cream after seeing a makeup artist that I follow use it. I have very dry hands that crack and bleed in the winter, and this is so moisturizing for them. However, my favorite use is on my FACE. I have had terrible adult acne on my forehead for years. They were little bumps that NEVER went away no matter what I did. I was worried that this thick cream would make it 10x worse, but I gave it a shot anyways, and honestly my skin is clearer than it has been in the past 5 years. I don't know how this little miracle works, but I'll never be caught without it. Highly recommend.

Great product if used right!

I have a combination skin , oily nose and normal the rest of the face. I only apply the product on the entire face , avoiding the nose area , other wise would be to heavy on my pores. I would say is to heavy for an oily skin , but WELEDA offers lighter products for all skin types. I loved all of their creams that I tried so far.

Wonderful!

I recently purchased a tube of Weleda Skin Food and it's wonderful! My hands have been so dry and I didn't quite know what product to purchase that would work well. There are many products on the market that are too greasy and some just wash off. While recently shopping at Whole Foods, I asked the cosmetic clerk for a recommendation and she told me Weleda was her favorite. I put your product on that night and saw a difference the next morning. The fragrance is very nice and I've already told my sisters to try Weleda. In fact, if my sisters don't get around to purchasing Weleda, I will buy them a tube. I haven't tried any other products in the Weleda line, but I am anxious to do so. Thank you for putting such a great hand cream on the market. Regards, Vivian PS - I am not one to give testimonials unless I am thrilled about a product.

THANK YOU

I just wanted to send you a big THANK YOU for your Skin Food cream. I've been renovating my home and the skin on my hands has suffered tremendously with all the abuse and Skin Food has helped me so much. It provides almost instant relief to the dry, chapped skin. I thought I'd tried just about everything on the market and nothing was working--I'd have to put more on every 10 minutes because my hands were drying out so badly. But with Skin Food, I can put it on twice daily and my hands continue to feel soft even when I'm working. Also, I'm a physician with a private practice here in Austin, TX, so I will be suggesting this product to my patients with dry or damaged skin. Thank you so much for developing something that actually works! With Gratitude, Amy

A top quality product

Dry weather seems to dry out my hands and my finger tips get rough. I've tried other lotions and creams without lasting results, not to mention the sticky feeling they left behind. Skin Food is a top quality product. It soaks into my dry hands and softens the dryness quickly. A little goes a long way and it smells fresh and clean. I should have bought it sooner and looked past the price. Don't ever discontinue this fabulous product, please!

Excellent product!

I cannot stop raving about the magical powers of Skin Food. I am on a medication (a sort of Accutane) for my acne that dries out my skin so much that the peeling has brought me to tears. When my friend recommended weleda I was hesitant because it seemed too greasy for facial care but it has truly changed my life. I am no longer self conscience about checking my face every ten minutes to see if I've got any flaking because Weleda works so well! What an excellent product!

Will never stop using it

My son has Down syndrome We having been struggling with very skin, and extremely dry cracked elbows, knees, ankles. Over the years we saw several dermatologists. All gave him creams of which none have worked. Last winter while in whole foods I found skin food. He has been using it twice a day. This week he showed us that his skin was perfect for the first time in fifteen years. He will never stop using it. Thank you Weleda.

IT IS AMAZING!!

I have worked as a Makeup Artist for all the high end brands and many high end department stores. I discovered Weleda Skin Food about 5 years ago and have used it on my face every day for the last 5 years. IT IS AMAZING!!! Working with skin care I have had access to skin creams that cost up to $400.00 a jar and NOTHING has ever compared to this cream in the dry climate of Las Vegas Nevada where I live. When you first use it you may feel it's heavy, but due to its natural and essential oil property it absorbs quickly and leaves my face the softest its ever been. I will NEVER use anything else!!!!! i use it on my face, neck and chest, PLEASE Weleda DO NOT EVER DISCONTINUE THIS BEAUTIFUL PRODUCT Always Daleena Singian

I am most grateful!!

Harsh winter had decidedly arrived here in Morocco's Middle Atlas Mountains and with it dry skin. Your Skin Food is saving me! Without it my hands would be miserable and I am most grateful for this especially wonderful product. Thank you a thousand times. I am a long-time enthusiast of your products, a handful of which I packed along with me eight months ago when departing for the Peace Corps. Natural, perfectly-scented organic products like yours are scarce if at all possible to find in these parts. In addition to your Skin Food, I am also loving your Sea Buckthorn Body Lotion and Body Wash right now, and for as long as they will last. Sometimes these treasures show up in care packages from home, thanks to my parents :). Thank you again for your organic commitment, hard work, and sharing of great products. I am most grateful!!

Can't wait to try more!

I can't wait to try more from this brand. I love Skin Food because it is a natural alternative to other, more expensive balms. I love using a dab of this as a nighttime eye cream, after a manicure to soften cuticles, as a foot cream on stubbornly dry heels, on the top of the cheekbones on no makeup days for a glow, or at night in a thin layer all over for a deeply hydrating mask. There's nothing this cream can't do. The signature scent is so soothing. I love everything about this product - the results, the price, the green tube, the scent... Can't wait to try more from Weleda.

WOW!

Wow. I applied Skin Food to my dry feet last night and the roughness is gone. I'm usually very good at keeping hydrated, but this winter, a new home, the heating is taking a toll on my skin, so I am using lotion in a big way. I've long used Waleda Seabuckthorn lotion for my hands...however, Skin Food gives an extra oomph to my thicker soles and heels. Just love it.

Ordering more!

I am a RN working in a busy ER. The soap & water free foam do great on killing germs but leave my hands red, cracked & bleeding around the nails. It gets really bad in the winter . I have tried everything but when I work 3-4 days in a row it gets very painful. My daughter-in-law saw my hands on Thanksgiving & had a tube of Weleda skin food with only 1/3 left. My hands improved in just 3 days. I'm ordering 2 more tubes today. It's now the buzz at work. Everyone wants it.

I LOVE Weleda Skin Food

I LOVE Weleda Skin Food. I managed a busy health food store; referring and selling a LOT of this product. I initially thought it was a product solely for the hands, elbows and heels; however if you have dry facial skin, use Skin Food on your face! It's thick and heavy to apply but wow does it work its magic. Smear dollops on your forehead, cheeks, nose, chin and massage into your skin. You'll look shiny for about fifteen minutes and then as your skin soaks up the cream, you'll go through the day with your skin feeling and looking fantastic. If you travel, it's the best cream you can keep on your skin during flights. I live in Australia in a dry climate and would not be without this product. I travel regularly to the US and have found it still works well for me even when I'm in a hot and humid climate; however I'm able to use less cream on my skin. This is not a cream I would suggest for oily skin. It's a perfect facial cream for anyone from about 40 onwards; however any age for the elbows, hands and feet. Cheers ~

Lifetime customer

I have suffered my whole life with terrible dry and sensitive skin. Growing up in the rainy Pacific NW of the US, and recently moving to the high desert, I had no idea how dry my skin could get! "Natural" and "skin sensitive" products such as Aveeno & Neutrogena did nothing for the dryness and more than not caused burning and irritation. I tried many types of organic oils including argon, coconut, vitamin e & even EVOO, all to no avail. I was desperate and felt like I was aging fast. I was ready to call a dermatologist. Before I did that, I started asking my coworkers their winter skin care routine. Lucky enough, one of them had Skin Food in their desk. I borrowed it for 2 days and it was as close to a miracle as I have ever found! I am a lifetime customer and forever grateful to finally find something that works for my skin. Currently, I use Skin Food after morning shower (under makeup) and before bed. I am eager to try more Weleda products.

THANK YOU for making such wonderful products

I'd just like to thank you for making such wonderful products. My mother & I are huge fans of your line. We both love your Weleda lip balms. I'm also a fan of your arnica ointment. But the main product I swear by is your Skin Food treatment. I now give a tube of Weleda skin food in each gift bag I give to my girlfriends for their birthdays. We always enjoy testing your new (and older) products, and have come to love your brand even more.My mother and; I will continue to be loyal customers for hopefully many years to come. Thank you for your time and; keep up the great work! Best Wishes, Kim

Skin is nourished and hydrated

I am a licensed esthetician and had a friend that wanted me to work on her at my place. So I recently just purchased your Skin Food because she is allergic to aloe and everything I had at the time contained aloe. So using it on her I loved seeing the results, especially because she had just started forming a dry patch, and afterward her skin looked and felt amazing. So of course I decided to use on my face. So far I love the way it feels. It doesn't feel heavy at all, my skin looks calmer and feels great but it is nourished and hydrated. Very hard to achieve especially with age. I am definitely excited to try other the facial products and see how my skin evolves. Look forward to updating and seeing results.

This product had blessed me.

I came down with Sinus infection/upper respiratory infection which of course caused my nose to become raw from having to blow my nose frequently. I was applying many different products but nothing helped. Then I tried the Skin Food and it worked tremendously well. This product had blessed me. Thank you.

Thanks Weleda!

Really love the skin food lotion it makes my hands soft and I can easily apply it during the day as it soaks into my skin nicely. I don't know what took me so long to discover Weleda as the Wild rose face lotion saved my problematic 45 year old skin. I guess the price can be scary but I only use a little bit and my face looks 10 years younger. Thanks Weleda!

Thankful for the wonderful product!

Both my husband and I work a lot outside. During the winter our hands crack and chap. Over the years we have tried so many expensive products, and none of them helped our hands very much. Then, we found Weleda Skin Food. Weleda does a tremendous job of keeping our hands soft. If we get cracked hands from the cold weather, Weleda heals them up overnight. We are very thankful for the wonderful product! Now, we always have Weleda Skin Food on hand!

Absolutely love it!

I recently started using Weleda Skin Food and I absolutely love it! I was a bit worried it would be too heavy or greasy but it absorbs very quickly and leaves my skin so soft and moisturized. I also love that it's made from all natural ingredients. I'm using it as a night cream on my face and on my dry hands. This cream is a keeper and I will be buying it for the foreseeable future!

Unbelievable

This product is unbelievable. While shopping at Sprouts, I often check the little basket for free samples because they prove to be excellent. This little sample pack is quintessential for dry feet, hands, elbows, etc. Immediately, I instructed my son to drop by the store and purchase the 2.5 oz today. On October 2, 2016, a tall and very distinguished gentleman sat beside me in Sunday school asking, "Do you have any lotion in my purse." He looked like a professional basketball player, but I am too polished to asked a gentleman of his professional status not knowing for sure. He was far too handsome and dapper. I really desired to tell him, "Hold on, I'll be right back with that lotion." A lady walked in taking a seat to my immediate left; I asked her for her lotion and gave it to him. I hope that count for something. [Smile] Anyway, I left my lotion in the car by mistake. I wished I had a few packs of these samples to give him one. He now frequent my Sunday school class and I am simply mesmerized at his presence. You should hear the sound of his voice. You know what will be in my purse from now on. Yes, "Weleda Skin Food!" If I should marry him [smiling], it shall, likewise be in our estate in each lavatory especially in the guests lavatory. Excellent product!

A Life Saver

I was suffering from extremely dry and flaky skin on my face due to weather change. I used a small amount of Skin Food on my irritated patches over night. The next morning I couldn't believe the difference! Flakiness was gone, redness reduced, and overall irritation disappeared. This product is a life saver!

AMAZING

I received this product for free, for a review from Octoly. But my opinion is 100% my own, and 100% honest. This little green tube of "Skin Food" is absolutely amazing. I used it on my feet, they were super soft, as well as my hands, but my most favorite was using it before i applied my makeup. I thought "this might be too thick.. is this even a good idea?" And oh boy let me tell you- It was an AMAZING idea. My skin looked so amazing, so smoothe, hydrated, and my makeup applied beautifully. I am a fan for life.

Thank you so very much!

We would just like to say how wonderful your products are. I was referred by my sister-in-law to use your products ( I would normally use a product with parabens). I was astonished to see the difference in my daughter's skin! Amazing products you have. We currently use the Skin Food & the Calendula Shampoo & Body Wash.

I will definitely buy these Welela products in the future. Thank you so very much!

Necessity!

The thick texture is a little bit intimidating at first, but ends up being much more helpful for your skin than any thinner lotion! Skin feels hydrated without feeling greasy and instantly has a healthy-looking glow. Perfect for legs before going out in shorts/skirts/dresses!

I love, love, love Skin Food. Not only do I use it on my hands, elbows and heels of my feet, but I put it under my eyes every night before bed for some serious hydration. The best part is, I know my skin is absorbing a product made with natural ingredients. It is simply amazing!
