I bought this because I was desperate for something that would help my skin in the cold, windy, harsh Dutch winters. My skin is sensitive and dislikes the cold as much as I do.
It is a very rich, oily-gely balm, and after applying it sits on my skin for a couple of minutes and then my skin drinks it right up. I'm not a huge fan of the smell, it reminds me of chamomile but ohwell, can't have it all.
I'm happy with the product, I don't think it makes me break out or anything. I find it soothing but not as great as avene's skin recovery cream. But it is great for protecting/recovering from windburn.
I think I will try weleda's cold cream next but i would repurchase generally. I also think the price is ok, I thought it was fairly cheap actually for a "natural" ingredient product.
I think the tube would benefit from a more narrow opening because you really dont need a lot of the cream and because it is so runny it gets a bit messy.

I am absolutley in love with this cream! I use it on my face at night, and sometimes on my hands, and it works beautifully.
I found this when i was buying my regular Weleda Baby Calendula Moisturising Body Cream, īcos with winter coming up I wanted something heavier. The wierd thing is that i used to have acne prone and sort of oily skin until i started using heavier creams (natural stuff like Weleda, I have to add. No mineral oil!!) on my face, and now my acne is pretty much gone, and i dont get oily patches on my forhead and nose.
So, if you have sensitive and sort of nervous, irregular and angry skin I definitly recomend you to give this one a try!
It has a very subtle scent, it melts in your hand and spreads easily over your face. It doesnt "sink in" like light moisturizers, but i like the creamy feeling, plus i use it over night so it doesnt really matter .

This is a heavy duty gel that leaves a protective layer on your skin. Very good against chapped lips and dry hands. Goes on very smooth and you only need the tiniest amount for both hands (about one drop). It is too oily for day time use on my face, but it's fine as a night treatment. Bought this for about 6.50 euro (for 30 ml), which is ok, because a tube lasts forever.

A very moisturizing product that does wonders for the adult face in winter. I slathered a generous amount of this on top of a very thin layer of Desert Essense jojoba oil which acted as base so that the cream would blend easily into my facial skin. With wind chilling temperatures of below zero Celsius and surrounding temperatures at about 2 to 3 degree Celsius, it was a miracle product. Coming from someone with rosacea & eczema prone skin, my face had no adverse reactions to it, no acne and no rosacea induced papules & pastules. I am so very impressed with this product for cold temperate climates!

A very rich and oily cream that works fine on a baby's butt or in the face if you're going out in minus-degree climate. Also works fine on cuticles and dry hands. Nice smell. Won't buy it again since it a little bit too licuid and I found better creams for those purposes.

This is an oily orange-transparent gel wit a nice smell. It is really liquid and runny so be careful - only a drop is enough to speread it all over your face.
recently I had a strong reaction from a retinaldehyd product (Diacneal) under my eyes and this was the only cera that managed to soothe my dry, painful , irritated skin there without any stinging.
The ingerdients are nice and natural so even tough I have applied it all over my face in winter (during nights of course as during the day it is definitely far too oliy to be used under my Avene sunscreen emulsion)there were any new break outs.
Highly recommended for extremely dry, chapped skin in winter.
P.S. German name is Wind und Wetter Balsam. It comes in an orange tube with yellow letters.

This is a great, healthy alternitive to most petrolium based lip gloss products. This is based with jojoba oil. The taste and smell is that of a rose. The tase could be better for lips but it works great.
It really feels as if it blocks the wind! Great natural product.

I use this for the eczema on my body.No other cream (also the ones of the doctor) has reduced the dryness and itchyness of my eczema that well.It is greasy,but it sinks into your skin quickly.
UPDATE: At this moment I have some eczema under my eyes because of an allergic reaction.I am using this balm for that and I am very happy with it.This works really well for eczema!!!!
