My skin says thank you

After a few days away with my girlfriend and me bitching about dry elbows. she asks me if I’ve ever tried skin food. I had never heard of it before and she pulls hers out of her bag and told me to try it.. I did. I loved it. I’ve now bought it. And I will tell everyone about it!!

Your Skin Will Thank You

I started using this after trying time and time again to find a moisturizer that wouldn't make my sensitive skin break out and that would provide enough moisture for my skin to stay hydrated all day/night long. I found this through a dermatologist, and honestly can't say enough wonderful things about this product. I used to have very, VERY intense acne, and with combo skin, usually the dryness would make my breakouts even worse. When I started using this as part of my skincare regimen (with some additional medications/washes/toners), I immediately noticed a difference - my skin is glowing, soft, and absolutely beautiful! I feel so good in my skin and feel like this is the perfect fit for me. I plan on buying myself the Skin Food bundle for the holidays simply because it's that amazing. I use it both day and night and just love how a little goes a long way. Do yourself (and your skin) a favor and try this product! Your skin will thank you. :)

Holy grail

I’ve tried many moisturizers around the colder seasons. My face dries out and gets flakey especially around the nose. I’ve been using this cream every night and each morning my face is soft! No more dry patches. Not harsh on my sensitive eczema prone skin either nor did I break out! Finally found my holy grail moisturizer. Can’t wait to try more Weleda products!

The Holy Grail of Moisturizers

Fantastic! Amazing! Incredible! The best moisturizer I've used on this 49 year old face. Surprisingly nourishing but that's not even the best part... My skin is even toned, my blemishes GONE, and my skin looked healthy enough to go out in public without any concealer or foundation (a big no no for my skin). I am a big believer that when things go wrong with our bodies it's due to a deficit of something we need. My skin needed this Skin Food. If you have oily skin you could still use as a night mask. Definitely try this product.. No doubt it's good for skin in late 20's to very mature.

My salvation

I have moderate psoriasis on my hands and feet. Since starting a regimen that includes your Skin Food I am seeing a marked difference in my skin. Thank you for a non-petroleum based non-greasy product. I love the fragrance as well. You've earned a long term user in me. Love the stuff!

Perfect for very dry skin

I have very dry skin, even though I live in a hot humid country. This is thick, and it takes a little to be absorbed by the skin. I was concerned I will break out due to its thickness, or that I couldn't use it under my makeup. I was mistaken. I can use it under my makeup, and it seems that my make up last longer with it. Not sure why. But my skins feels so soft, it looks radiant and plump. Perfect now that I'm in my late thirties.

Just try it.

I’ve been using this product for exactly 7 days. I have noticed a beautiful difference in my skin. I put wedela on my face, under my eyes, behind my ears, on my neck (front and back) and on my chest. I ware it both as a night cream and a morning cream before I apply makeup. I’ve purchased two more tubes for the fear of running out. I also use the body butter and have noticed a difference in the texture of my skin. Bottom line it works. I’m 54 and take pretty good care of myself and skin. This product give you a healthy glow and a youthful plump to my face.

Healed my skin!

On a recommendation from my mom, I decided to try this product. I had a flare up of really dry skin on my face —very red, puffy, itchy and peeling. People were asking me if I was ok based on how bad it looked. I tried everything I had in my medicine cabinet for several days. Nothing was working. Within an hour of putting this cream on my face, the redness was 90% gone and it stopped itching and the next morning it was completely gone. It felt like a miracle! Plus the scent is nice too ;)

Tried it for the first time...now I'm a fan

I use it for my face. I have sensitive skin and I was so pleasantly surprised by how calming and nourishing this cream is. I don't see redness or bumps. When I wake up in the morning, I see a radiant and more even toned complexion. I'm so thankful to have found this cream as I've struggled to find the perfect facial moisturizers. Must now try the less rich formula to see if I could use it for the warmer season.

Mircale Product

This product does it all. I have extremely dry hands and this is the only thing that helps. I was traveling and forgot my face moisturizer and used this instead...I am blown away. It HEALED my acne scars in 3 days. I had no idea you could use this on your face! I have psoriasis in my eyebrows thought I might as well give it a try...HEALED. Unbelievable.

A dewy glow!

A hydrating crème that gives my skin a youthful, dewy glow. A must have!! In winter months, I layer with the Cold Crème, which provides a terrific barrier against the cold, and too much indoor heat.

My new favorite

I saw so many people praising this. I decided to give it a try. I took a huge leap of faith and tried it on my acne prone face. At first, I thought there was no way my face wouldn’t look extremely oily after application. I decided to try it as a primer, and I’m never going back to anything else. My acne has cleared up and I almost feel as if I don’t need foundation anymore.

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!
