When a cheap and cheerful product that's been around since 1926 has a celeb A list following like Victoria Beckham, Julia Roberts, Sharon Stone, Adele and Helena Christensen ... my ears prick up. To say that Weleda Skin Food hasn’t changed all of our lives would be understatement. The certified natural and holistic brand Weleda has supported us - and our A List friends - through our crustiest and flakiest days for over 90 years. That’s a long time of skincare revolution that continues to stand the test of time. It’s pretty impressive, if you ask me.
So, what makes Weleda Skin Food so revolutionary, I hear you ask? Besides the fact that it’s super affordable (only $22.95), this green tube of hydrating goodness is curated with beautiful, nutritional 100% natural ingredients that serves an array of purposes.
Dry hands? Skin Food.
Flakey skin? Skin Food.
Calluses? Skin Food.
Overnight mask? Skin Food.
Honestly, if it was around in the Egyptians days it probably would’ve been used to preserve pharaohs - that’s how epic it is.
Now, nearly 100 years later, Weleda has gifted us with the Skin Food Experience we all deserve. Weleda welcome's 3 new Skin Food products inspired by the brand’s stellar firstborn.
Weleda Skin Food Body Butter
150ml. RRP: $29.95
Click here to BUY
First up on the must-haves is Skin Food Body Butter. Formulated with a luxurious blend of sunflower oil, lanolin, beeswax, shea butter and cocoa butter. This product will leave your skin feeling intensely soft, smooth and hydrated but never greasy!
And there’s no need to worry about a head-ache inducing fragrance, the smell is beautifully light and never overpowering.
Best suited to:
EVERYONE! Since the formulation is fast absorbing and non greasy, everyone can benefit from the deliciousness of this green tube.
Weleda Skin Food Light
75mL. RRP: $22.95
Click HERE to Buy
If you find the consistency of Weleda Skin Food a little too thick and creamy, then you’ll love this! Keeping the integrity of the original formula, this little goodie comes in a gel consistency. Perfect for those who don’t need an intense hydration but love a good skin nourishing product. Skin Food light makes for a beautiful make up base combining a moisturiser and primer in one. How awesome’s that!
Tip: For the usage of cracked, dry skin I recommend that you use the Original Skin Food - click HERE to buy - as this won’t provide the intense healing property like the original version does.
Best Suited to:
Normal/ Dry Skin, for every day use.
Normal/Oily Skin, use as a night moisturiser.
Mix a tiny amount of loose shimmer with a couple of drops of Weleda Skin Food Light to create your own customised illuminating base. Ensure you leave the product to sink in before applying other base products.
Weleda Skin Food Lip Balm
8ml. RRP: $12.95
Click HERE to buy
Get ready for the colder season with this bad boy! Packed with botanical extracts and natural oils. This lip balm will soothe and repair your chapped lips before you start complaining about them ;). It feels comfortable and smooth on the lips and never heavy.
Best suited to:
Anyone with lips!
