Holy grail product: Weleda Skin Food

Sunday, December 30, 2018


Funnily enough, in my last 'Holy Grail' post, I mentioned that I was using Skin Food but it was too moisturising and I needed something lighter. Flash forward ten months and I'm practically bathing in Skin Food once again. 

My skin is generally on the dry side but in the spring/summer I don't need or want something as intense as Skin Food (I use Avene Hydrance Optimale Light Hydrating Emulsion in the summer), whereas in the winter I need three layers of the stuff on my face just to function.


Every autumn/winter I fall back in deep, deep love with Weleda's Skin Food. It is truly a miracle product. I don't use it as a full face moisturiser (it is too heavy and thick), I just use it on dry patches, mostly around my chin and jaw where I get spots and flakiness. Once my spots have dried out and start to heal, Skin Food keeps the scabs moisturised so they don't crack (a grim image, but don't pretend you don't know what I'm talking about) and makes sure the skin around them stays hydrated.

This product saves my skin on a daily basis. I couldn't live without the stuff. Anyone who suffers from dry skin on the face or body needs to use this. It just works. It is such a rich formula. Anyone with dry spots or acne (wouldn't recommend for oily skin) needs to be slathering this on either as a mask or a night cream because your skin will drink it up and love you forever.

I don't personally use this under make-up in the day (you can, just go in with a light hand and it'll be fine); instead I use it more like a face mask by putting a thick coat on any dry areas and letting it sit. I don't rub it in. A few hours later (or the next morning) my spots aren't dry or red. 

Skin Food also makes for a luxurious foot mask in the summer.


Weleda recently released more Skin Food products which I'm drying to try. I can't wait to get my hands on the lip balm and light moisturiser

You can buy two sizes of the original Skin Food - 30ml or 75ml. Both will last you a lifetime. In my opinion, this product is so thick and rich you won't need a lot to get decent coverage. The website says to 'apply generously' but it's up to you how much you want to use. Suppose it depends on how dry your skin is.

Weleda is a cruelty free brand and do sell vegan products (note that not everything is vegan, do check the ingredients). You can read into every one of their ingredients here and learn about their ethics, commitments and environmental sustainability here

Like the last post, this is not a #spon, I just bloody love this product and brand and want everyone to know about it.
