In consistency the moisturizer is reminiscent of a slightly watery lotion. Although it does not proceed directly, but that it emits moisture, you'll immediately notice after the initial skin contact. With the scent, however, I'm not completely satisfied. Because this has come much too intense for my taste. What possibly may be due to the wrong expectations. Because flowery smell the Smoothing Moisturizer in any case. Even if Weleda has allegedly used here only natural ingredients, the impression is very artificial. The Wildrose comes through only in its infancy. Distributing the care cream is correspondingly well and quickly. Until it is absorbed into the skin, it takes a while. So which one should use in any case too much. Due to contained alcohol occurs at first a cooling effect that can consistently perceives as pleasant and relaxing the skin. Firming ingredients does not own the product but Weleda. Because the smoothing effect is achieved in a very different way. Namely, by upholstering the skin with fat and moisture. What particular works pretty well if you already have a dry skin. Great miracles but we must not expect from this natural remedy. Small wrinkles disappear entirely. Since Weleda promises not too much. For the slightly lower age wrinkles, however one needs to have significantly greater resources.
I have been using a few Weleda products lately and have found them to be very good for my skin. I bought this Almond Wild Rose soothing face lotion from Amazon for just under £8 which is really a good bad for a good quality facial lotion. 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 matching.
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 light and floral 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.
