I love this little thing! It has just a few ingredients, never irritates my sensitive skin, istead makes it calm and soft and even. Affordable and lasts quite a while, easy to find. The only thing you might want to consider is that it is not the most hydrating so you might wanna use a different one under makeup. I almost never use makeup so that is not an issue for me, but if you do, this might not work (you can still use it as a night cream!), because I tried it a couple of times under a tinted moisturizer (yes, i use a cream under) and it didn`t look that great as it didn`t give me enought moisture. So IMO your skin will look wonderful alone with it, even and soft, calm, but for makeup users you might want something more moisturizing...
Great moisturizer. I use it as nightcream. It even made my little lines fade. It leaves your skin feeling ultrasoft.
I am sooo amazed at this little super cream!!! It has done what none of my other serums, lotions and potions specifically for redness and blotchiness could do! It actually calms my skin and makes it less red in about 60 seconds after applying it. My skin is soft, moisturized and soothed. It is truly amazing because I would have never guessed this simple little cream could do so much. I ignored it for years, but am so glad that I finally gave in and tried it about a month and a half ago. Based on its simple ingredient list, I'm guessing its the hydrolyzed beeswax that does all the wonders for me. It keeps my skin barrier sealed. I get similar results from diemthicone/silicone primers but if I apply them too heavy than I can get breakouts. This cream soothes redness, adds moisture, and acts sort of like a primer because my makeup looks great over this. I cleanse with Weleda cleansing milk (another fantastic game changer product), Avene themal water, then moisturize my face with this cream. Then if I want to really get a perfect canvas for my makeup application, I take a half a pea size of this cream and mix it with my Reviva primer (about a 1/4 pea amount) So you can see I am using way less silicone primer and thats saving me money. Also, its crazy but I have not gotten any inflamed pimples since using this. I've gotten some small whiteheads (only after eating food I know I react bad to like too many carbs or chips) and this cream helps all my pimples heal faster. Since I've been using it a while, I would say that it really has helped my sensitive skin get stronger and I breakout way less than ever before. I am so happy with this cream. Its not expensive and I can save money since I dont have to buy all those fancy, expensive serums for rosacea, redness and blotchiness. HG in my book!
When my skin had a bad allergic reaction over a month's time to a change in laundry detergent, this was the product that reversed the reaction. I had no idea what was happening and ended up sleeping on a pillowcase washed in this oxy-clean detergent for a month and a half and it sucked ALL of the moisture out of my face. I was breaking out like crazy (which I rarely ever break out) and my combination-dry skin was super super all-over dry. I scrambled to find new moisturizer and cleanser. The first moisturizer I tried was Korres Yogurt Cream, which worked wonderfully, but it just wasn't quite moisturizing enough. I tried this and my skin loved me for it. After using it for about 2-3 months, my skin went back to 'normal' for me and this became too thick, so I switched to Weleda almond soothing facial lotion (a thinner version of this stuff) and still use it today. Love it!
Very soothing on rosacea, helped reduce redness and irritation, but after a week of this used alongside the almond cleanser, my skin felt comfortable but looked so much older. think its got too much alcohol and gave me lines that were not there before. would not repurchase.
I use this product as an eye cream, and love it for that purpose. I originally used it all over my face, but found that it was a little too oily and on some parts of my face, there was a bit of oil left on the surface after applying it. However, my eye area is dry and it is fantastic there, and does a great job of reducing wrinkles. I also love that this is a natural, organic product.
Very moisturising cream, I use this morning and night after washing my face with Phisohex and the Weleda Almond Soothing Cleansing Lotion. It has a pleasent smell, goes lovely under makeup and basically does the job of a moisturiser.
It is incredibly gentle, I broke out it hives during a stressful period of time and this was the only moisturiser gentle enough for the affected areas.
I would not recommend this product for oily skinned girls... but I would highly recommend this product to dry/normal skinned girls! I have already repurchased twice, and will continue to do so ($25.00 AUD, available from certain health food stores in Australia or online).
This is a good daytime moisturizer. It seems to have been designed for sensitive dry skin. It reduces redness and does not feel heavy. It contains few ingredients and is fragrance free. The package is rather small so it ends up being expensive, but I find it well worth it. Before discovering this product I had problems applying makeup on flaky dry skin. A few downside: it doesn't contain an SPF and it contains lactic acid which I would rater not use every day.
NB - THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE WELEDA ALMOND FACIAL LOTION AND NOT THE CREAM
PRICE: 24.95 CAD (Canada) and 18.95 USD (United States)
DESCRIPTION: This thin lotion is a bit of a mystery. Despite having a high percentage of almond oil, this manages to dry my skin out and induce flaking and I am otherwise oily. The Weleda Almond Facial Cream (see separate review) does not do this nor does using Weleda's Facial Almond Oil. I attribute this phenomenon to the oil being diluted by the glyceryl stearate se and the alcohol in the product. Overall, this isn't even moisturizing enough for summertime for me.
INGREDIENTS: Water (Aqua), Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Glycerin, Hydrolyzed Beeswax, Prunus Domestica (Plum) Seed Oil, Xanthan Gum, Lactic Acid.
I would not rebuy and would recommend the Weleda Almond Facial Oil or the Weleda Almond Facial Cream from this line instead.
This cream is a bit funny. It seems to be somewhat hydrating to some areas of my face but other parts experience extreme flaking throughout the day. It's also kind of greasy which I'm not sure I like since I have combo skin so my t-zone just gets oilier. I probably will not be purchasing this again. Just doesn't seem like enough moisturizing occurring or enough of the product for the price.
