Review: Weleda Skin Food

Friday, 10 January 2014

If you suffer with dry skin, Weleda skin food will become your new best friend. I've had this 10ml sample in my stash for a while now thanks to a past beauty box. It's only till recently when I noticed a significant increase of dryness on my elbows that I dug it out and decide to give it a go. 

This hydrating and moisturising treatment is perfect for those area's that tend to get dry rather quickly ; elbows, hands and your feet. You can use it all over the body, but these specific target areas are where it really excels. I'm terrible for having my elbows on the table, I'm also constantly leaning on them while working at my desk at work. Over time this has left them so dry. You know when people have white elbows because they are so dehydrated... yeah, I was heading that way! (It probably doesn't help that I am rubbish and don't moisturise daily after I shower - I'm always in too much of a rush! I need to rectify this.) For the past 2 weeks I have been applying Skin food to my elbows before bed. Each morning I woke up and saw some improvement. Over the course of the two weeks, the dryness has pretty much completely gone which I am so pleased about. I will definitely continue to use the product to keep my elbows looking lovely, but maybe keep it as an every other day thing instead of daily (because you know... I will start to use up those body butters I have stashed.. I will)

 It is sold as a cream, however the consistency of the Weleda skin food is more balmy. With this in mind, I predominately use it on my elbows & sometimes my feet after using my micro pedi.. If my face is feeling particularly parched and is in need of some serious moisture, I use it as an over night mask to perk up my complexion and spring some life back into my skin! 

The best thing about Weleda skin food is that it really isnt that expensive. You can get the 30ml tube from Feel Unique for just £5.95. They currently have the 75ml tube on offer at £7.19 so it would make a lot of sense to pick up the bigger tube if you were planning on purchasing it! With the current weather we are experiencing I would say it's good product to have in your stash! If you just want a small sample to try like the one I currently have you get buy it direct from the Weleda website

Have you tried this product before? Is it something you would like to try?

Much love,


  1. I keep seeing Weleda in my supermarket (in Germany) but didn't really know anything about it! But my elbows are in bits, might be worth a shot!

  2. Weleda is popping up everywhere but I'm yet to try things yet!
