Works wonders for mature skin

I am 54 years old and have been searching for several years for a moisturizer that is a true humectant that will actually hydrate my (ack!) aging skin. Being post menopausal means everything is drier, and I live in a very  ... dry climate as well. In desperation, and after spending a small fortune hither and yon, trusting in and purchasing anything that had positive reviews for "the best moisturizer," (but in truth were not ever very moisturizing), I gave in and used petroleum jelly. Yep, that's how low I sunk! Petroleum jelly - on my face! All it did was make me look greasy, and I got small bumps all over my face -even under my eyes. I was shocked that my dermatologist recommended continuing with it, despite the bumps. Well, I didn't follow his advice (thank heavens), nor did I like the samples of creams he gave me, and was about to give up on finding anything for my skin when I received a sample size tube of Weleda rich intensive skin food. I used it and immediately fell in love with it! I've used it for nearly 2 weeks now and not only does my face feel hydrated, but it looks dewy and younger too, and not greasy! And the weird bumps are gone! I'm here to now purchase the largest tube of this wonderful product that I can. I'm so grateful that Weleda rich intensive skin food came into my life. After years of spending too much money for poor products, and all of the frustration of dealing with red, painful itchy, sallow skin, I now have lovely, smooth, moisturized skin. Exactly what I have been looking for. I highly recommend this product to anyone, but especially those with mature skin.

As face cream

My good friend slathers her face with this ultra-rich cream every morning. Her skin is flawless like porcelain and she is in her 70’s. Too rich for my skin on my face, but perfect for hers.  ... If you have a dry face. Try it there. I use the light on my face and my face loves it.
