I bought this together with the WIld Rose night cream. While I like the night cream, this cream is nothing like its after dark twin - it has so much alcohol in it that my skin feels drier and flakier after using it.
Even in Springtime in Hong Kong (where the humidity is somewhere between 75-95%), I need to apply, re-apply and re-re-apply it throughout the day just to keep my skin from feeling stretchy tight. If I have flakes on my cheeks, this cream does nothing to soothe it nor does it make the flakes less visible (let alone making them disappear).
I can probably use it during the hot summer days in Hong Kong, where the temperature can surge up to 35 degree celsius. On drier or colder days, however, I would use the night cream (as a day cream) (you may see my review on the night cream).
The good things about it:
(a) nice rose smell
(b) it absorbs very quickly and you can apply makeup as soon as you finish applying it on your face
(c) it is reasonably priced.
This was given to me as a gift, however the pricing was still on (lol) and it was quite expensive given the quality. I found the consistency very watery and the product didn't give my dry skin enough coverage. It may be suitable for younger, normal skin. I won't use this product again.
I got this cream in a beautybox a couple of weeks ago. First thing that I noticed was the strong smell of this product, which is really too strong for my liking. I also found out that it makes my face look too shiny when I use foundation after this, so I only put this cream on when I don't plan on using any foundation that day.
Despite those two cons, I must say that it does hydrate my skin and it didn't break me out (instead, small blemishes have disappeared), which is a huge plus. Unfortunately, this is not the moisturizer for me so after I've used this up, I won't repurchase.
I got this as a bonus from a kit, and I have to say the fragrance is way too strong for a facial moisturizer. I do like the non-greasy texture and how it doesn't break me out (I have combination, acne-prone skin), but I have a hard time dealing with the headache from the strong rose-scent at night. This also isn't too cheap so I'll try more drugstore moisturizers to find my HG.
i use it on my neck and forehead against wrinkles. i dont use it on my face as i have acne prone skin and this didnt feel non comedogenic at all. smells nice and it has a smooth texture
This product worked perfectly for my skin type. It imparted moisture to dry parts without causing breakouts on oilier parts. It also didn't leave a greasy feeling like many moisturizing cremes tend to. It is, however, rather expensive when compared to other products. I purchased it *on clearance* for 13.50! Thankfully, one tube generally lasts me for months.
I've been using the new 'smoothing facial lotion' version of this for 'normal and combination skin'. The first time I put it on, my skin felt suffocated for some reason-almost like I need to put another moisturizer on top. But that said, my skin started to look smoother and brighter within a couple of days and there was a very noticable reduction in the faint lines on my forehead. I actually quite like the smell of this lotion-its strong herbal. I bought it for 12.50 GBP which I consider neither cheap nor expensive for this 30 ml tube. The only down falls are the bits of peeling I get when I wear concealer and foundation on top-this moisturizer doesn't make a particularly good under make-up base, and the fact that my spots, that I've had since before using this, still haven't disappeared. But overall, the best Weleda range product for my skin.
Does not spread easily, and is sticky :( I did not like. Smelled like pickles and roses. Ew!
I've been using this every morning for about a month. While it is not a miracle product, it does a nice job moisturizing. I have pretty normal skin, sometimes a little dry in the winter, and this lotion is a nice base for my foundation. The smell is what drives me crazy. To me - it almost smells rotten. I have noticed that my face is getting shinier from this lotion during mid day (problems I didn't have with any other moisturizers) and I found myself needing to apply MUFE loose powder more and more to keep the oiliness at bay.
I'll finish the tube because it is a nice moisturizer, but I've tried better. I do appreciate the all natural aspect, but as a total package this lotion doesn't impress me. Maybe as a night cream or as a moisturizer for a day where I'm not planning on wearing foundation...
My Face: sensitive/dry/oily/small bumps/mild hormonal pimples. I do not have the greatest skin as you can tell. I've been using this for awhile and my skin has done a 360. The texture of my skin has changed so much. It is now hydrated, smooth, has a glow & is supple.
Ive been using Panoxyl (10% ben. perioxide facial wash) and it has completely dried out all my pimples and my skin (which i wanted), so I needed an moisturizer. This was it. Amazing. The texture of the cream feel like a lotion, but nonetheless when you rub it in, its mosdef a cream. Its not thick, but it adds so much moisture without the greasiness. Just does the job, especially since i use an intense face wash. I use this on my face every other night, or sometimes in the morning, or just when my skin needs it. I have not broken out from this product, which means a lot since I break out to a lot of products.
Overall a great product, semi organic, and has made a huge difference on my skin.
