I have been using a few Weleda products lately and have found them to be very good for my skin. I bought this Almond soothing facial lotion from Amazon for just under £8 which I don't think is too bad for a good quality facial lotion and have spent a lot more on other brands. You can get it direct from Weleda for £11 and they also do day and night cream and a hydrating mask in the same fragrance if you like everything from the same range.
The tube is 30ml so is not very big but you do really only have to use a very small amount so it probably does last as long as a cheaper one which you need to use a far bigger amount to do the job. The smell is fresh and sweet without being sickly or overpowering and unlike some other fragranced lotions I have used before, the smell stays the same when you have applied it and you can smell it for some time after applying it.
It is a light smooth cream but is still thick enough to stay on your finger without dripping or falling off as you apply it. It is thinner than the average day cream which I do find a bit too thick sometimes and find that it can take a bit of rubbing in, however this cream soaks in almost immediately and you can actually feel it absorbing deep into your skin. It is supposed to stimulate your natural moisture balance and it is suitable for all ages, and it balances your skin whatever your skin type is.
It contains all natural ingredients and essential oils and it is suitable for vegetarians. I will use this cream daily after showering in the morning and it provides a perfect base for my make up as it completely absorbs leaving no shiny wet patches. I find that my make up goes on smoothly and it seems to stay on longer when I use this cream.
To use I will squeeze a small blob onto my finger and dab it onto my forehead, cheeks and chin. It does only look a very small amount on each part of my face but it really is sufficient to cover it all. I will use both my hands and with my fingers use small outward sweeping movements until I have covered my whole face.
Even though this cream is light it is rich enough to really hydrate my skin and make it feel fresh and soft. I find that my dry skin has faded and my face does seem brighter and fresher. I would highly recommend this facial lotion and think it is good quality and in my opinion well worth the money. This lotion comes highly recommended if you like to look after and pamper your skin
