The first time I tried Weleda Iris Hydrating Day Cream was the day of my last birthday. A friend of mine who knows my passion for iris smell, decided to buy this cream as a gift for that special occasion.
When I opened the package I was so happy to receive a new Weleda product because I love this brand for many reasons and above all for the absence of syntetics and the wonderful iris smell.
I decided to try it straight away and I used it before applying the make-up. My skin was so smooth and scented and no trace of grease appeared even though I have an oily skin and this cream was created for dry skin. It is very easy to apply and it was absorbed in no time. The perfume is simply excellent and so delicate because it is natural.
I also noticed that all ingredients are natural and this is not easy to find: no parabens, no ELS, no paraffinum, nothing that could damage your skin. I started to use it and when the first tube finished, I bought a new one for only £ 13 that is a very convenient price for a cream like this. As it is hydrating, I used it also for my dry hands and the result is excellent. The only problem I have is that my daughter and my friend discovered it in my beauty case so now the third tube is almost empty! I highly recommend this product as one of the best I have ever used.
Definitely does what it says it is going to do! Hydrated the skin pretty well, great for everyday use, the skin looks natural and feels very smooth. I'm impressed as it's made with all natural ingredients, consistency is great and soaks into the skin which is great for cold days and hot days.
This product was one of a few I have been given by the lovely people at Weleda and I have yet to find a product that I don't like.
Weleda make all their products using natural ingredients and none of them have any parabens or synthetics so they are great for anyone who cares about these things and for anyone with skin that is sensitive. having said that Weleda do say that if you have sensitive skin it is best to do a patch test on new, untried products.
This is a day cream so not quite as intense or thick as the night cream but even so it is a lovely rich, moisturising cream. It has been created for those with dry skin as it is designed using ingredients that helps regulate the skin’s natural balance at the same time as giving plenty of moisturising.
This lightly scented moisturising day cream has witch hazel which is soothing and jojoba seed oil which helps to soften the skin at the same time as improving elasticity.
I find this is light enough to not feel heavy and soaks in quickly leaving my skin feeling healthy and not greasy at all. It allows my to apply my make up with no slippery feeling at all.
I have found that my skin feels good day long and at no time do I feel I need a moisture top up.
I love the scent , it isn't overwhelming but is pleasantly floral with a hint of talciness to it.
This is a perfect day cream and at night you can use the Iris night cream or a different night product should you fancy. This day Cream is a richer choice than the Weleda Iris Hydrating Facial Lotion so you have a choice of a number of different creams in the same iris options and so you can use which suits your skin at the time.
The thing to remember when applying creams to your face or indeed any other part of yor body, only apply as much as the skin can readily absorb. there is no need to plaster it on as it does not get any better by applying more than needed.
The iris in this day cream is there because the iris properties help the skin regulate its moisture level. Iris extracts not only moisturise the top layer of the skin but they stimulate the skin layer which produces keratin which helps keep skin younger.The iris fatty acids in the extracts also work on the deeper layers of skin.
This is a lovely gentle, pleasant smelling day cream that makes my skin feel lovely and well balanced and moisturised.
WHAT IS IT?
This is cream that is made by Weleda. It is to be used in the daytime because it is not so rich as night cream.
WHY DID I BUY IT?
I was invited to choose a free gift when I bought some other Weleda products so instead of buying something that I had used before already I thought it would be a good opportunity to try something new from them. I have liked their skin creams before when I have used them and thought I would like to try this one also.
WHAT I THINK
I like this skin cream very much and I am happy that I received it for free. I am going to buy another tube when mine runs out.
I think the fragrance is quite strong, I like it because it has got a floral smell of iris that is pleasing to me but if a person had sensitive skin I think the strong perfume might be a problem for them.
I like the way this cream is light and it absorbs into my skin straight away. I do not have to spend alot of time rubbing it in and it is suited for being a daytime face cream because it does not ever make my skin feel greasy and it absorbs quick so that it can start to work.
My skin feels soft and moisturised when I use this face cream and I am happy about that. I think the skin on my face is smoother also when I have used this and that happened very quick in the first one or two times I used it. I think it is effective as a day cream.
My husband does not like the smell and he can smell the iris for quite long after I have applied it so that shows how strong and floral it is.
A tube of this Iris face cream costs about £13 and I think that is value because alot of other day creams are more expensive and they do not work as good.

As you already know I'm a huge fan of this brand and until now I've never been deluded by their products... For quite a while I was searching for a good hydrating cream for day usage especially during the cold season and finally I must admit that I've found the good one...

As I've told you my skin really needs hydration and this cream is the first one that brings to my skin all it needs... I was afraid when I bought this cream that it will be a little too heavy for my skin, but used and applied with the right technique this cream is really wonderful. To give you an example, I'm also using Dr Hauschka products but none of their creams is capable to hydrate so well my skin and for all day long, even in a windy and cold winter day... I'm impressed and amazed in the same time, how good this cream is for people like me who really need a lot of hydration... The fragrance is good, I mean not so perfumed, just the right amount and it gives you a real pleasant felling just after applying it... You feel your skin really hydrated, pampered and very soft and smooth.
None, not even the price... as it's quite affordable for 30 ml it costs around 10 Euro.
How to use
Apply to cleansed skin in the morning and gently massage into the face, neck and decolletage. Use only as much as the skin can readily absorb. For very dry skin you can also use Weleda Iris Hydrating Facial Masque for an intensive moisture boost. Also for dry skin, caused by seasonal or hormonal changes or changes in the weather, you can use Weleda Iris Hydrating Day Cream in combination with Weleda Iris Hydrating Facial Lotion.
I have a quite different technique for applying this cream... In fact I'm using a floral water (Orange or Rose) that I'm spraying before on the skin. When the skin is still wet I'm using a little amount of this cream that I warm up for some seconds in my palms and gently applying all over my face... The mixture of the two products (floral water and cream) gives a light emulsion that really penetrates into the skin in some seconds, leaving the skin fresh, hydrated and with a nice velvet veil.
Finally after long searches I've found the right hydrating cream for the cold season... Great fragrance, nice feeling on my skin and really hydrating, in fact it has all I need in a 30ml tube... The price is really affordable and you can find it in quite any beauty store... I intend to buy the Night Cream and also the Mask from the same range as those two products are complementary with this cream and really make a complete routine to hydrate the skin all over the year. Dehydration marks and wrinkles on my face are completely gone and my skin is smoother with a velvet look.
Don't search anymore a solution to hydrate your skin, as this cream is all you need to solve your problem out...!
