A worthy product for my 100th review!
Weleda Pomegranate Body Wash
Why choose Weleda?
A longstanding favourite company of mine. Established and experienced in producing beauty treats to a high standard using organic, natural ingredients which smell amazing. The company conducts itself ethically and are cruelty free with all products suitable for vegetarians and a good amount catering for vegans. I have grown to trust and respect Weleda they have always been consistent in terms of quality.
Why Pomegranate Body Wash?
Dry skin on my shins had been plaguing me and I had trialled other products with some relief though not remedied it satisfactorily. The pomegranate range is aimed at the age group of 40 or over but to be honest that would not stop me from trying out this appealing range. I was intrigued by the advertising which describes 'nurtured skin which is soft to the touch' and 'infused with essential oil'. The price is a little on the higher side for a body wash but as it was on offer BOGOF how could I resist?
This product arrives unboxed - unusual for Weleda but not a problem. At 200ml the tube style container is, as I expected, quality. It is professional and high end in the aesthetics department as it feels and handles like an expensive item should. Robust materials and easy flip lid. As usual the design is minimalist and modest - everything you need to know is detailed on the back. Simple and functional with minimal fuss - sorted.
Creamy times - the trial!
I decided to use the wash whilst bathing mostly though I have showered with it too. The first thing I notice when I open the lid is the fresh and fruity smell - I like it and find it awakens the senses. I squirt a good amount into the palm of my hand and then massage into the body. The cream is thick and it is 'creamy'. A luxurious, though not suddy, lather covers the body and it feels incredible. It is not greasy and not bubbly - this is quality creaminess and feels like a real expensive treat.
I allow the cream to sit on my body for a short while and it does not become drying. I now notice the fragrance has changed and I can detect the neroli which is a favourite of mine. It is very uplifting and relaxing at the same time. I occasionally use a body mitt to massage with but mostly I use my hands.
Rinsing off is easily done and it is obvious how rich the cream is as it stays for a few splashes and sweeps with the hands - it does not float in the bath water as it is not oily.
I finish off my pamper time by massaging the Pomegranate body oil into my body. My skin is soft and smooth before I apply the oil though the oil makes all the difference. These are great to use together though on the rare occasion that I have omitted the oil my skin is noticeably soft for the duration of the night and the next morning. My shins are no longer dry. The skin is not thirsty any longer and I put that down to the wonderful Pomegranate range. I will be sticking with this body wash as an important part of my beauty routine - I have never experienced anything like it before.
The body wash lasts me approximately a month and a half which I think is impressive.

Final thoughts on the creaminess of Weleda...
I have stocked up on this product when Weleda had the recent offer of BOGOF. This has proved to be a wise decision as I have found the perfect match for me and my skin requirements. My skin is significantly improved in appearance and feel since beginning my pamper regime with the pomegranate range. This product is a sensuous experience - the senses become aroused immediately as you journey through the notes of the blend. At the same time you experience the sumptuous consistency of the creamy body wash - it slides onto the skin and sits there until you decide to rinse it off. It feels luxurious and I feel it is a treat every time I bathe or shower. Applied with hands or mitt the results are impressive. Dry and thirsty skin is now a thing of the past for my lower legs. I would happily pay full price for this product as you get what you pay for and it is fit for purpose. Packing and product are the usual excellent standard from this ethical and cruelty free company. I need look no further for I have found my elixir of body washes here.
A High FIVE!
That's all for now folks...
