      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A really lovely masque!

      My first experience of Weleda was when I received a free sachet of Skin Food when I ordered something from a natural beauty website. I was impressed with the Skin Food (face cream) so I searched for more Weleda products. I liked the look of this Wild Rose Smoothing Masque and so I decided to give it a try.

      This product is suitable for vegans and the Weleda website says that all of their products are suitable for vegetarians. The ingredients are;

      Water (Aqua), Prunus Persica (Peach) Kernel Oil, Glycerin, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Alcohol, Rosa Moschata Seed Oil, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Kaolin, Malva Sylvestris (Mallow) Extract, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Fragrance (Parfum)*, Limonene*, Linalool*, Citronellol*, BenzylAlcohol*, Geraniol*, Citral*, Eugenol*, Farnesol*, Xanthan Gum. *from natural essential oils.

      The peach kernel oil attracted me to this product because it leaves the skin soft and is light and non-greasy. The same goes for the sweet almond oil, which is moisturising and easily absorbed by the skin. I really like to use products that contain nice ingredients like the 'Rosa Moschata Seed Oil' (rosehip seed oil) which I have used alone before and found it to have lovely effects on my skin tone and texture. I almost always think that 'natural' brands could improve their ingredients, sometimes there are ingredients that I'm unsure about or that seem unnecessary but on the whole, I think these ingredients are pretty good!

      I really love the smell of this, it has a subtle but noticeable rose fragrance. I like how it doesn't smell artificial to me, the natural essential oils smell great and leave a light scent on the skin. The texture of the masque itself is thick and creamy but it's still quite light, it isn't too heavy or gloopy which is great. It spreads easily and a little goes a long way. There is only 30ml in the tube so I was really glad that I don't have to use too much of this, it makes it better value for money and lasts longer!

      To use this, you are supposed to apply it evenly and thinly, avoiding the eyes and lips. It says that you can apply this to the face, neck and décolletage but I have only used it on my face. First, I wash my face and then I apply this in a thin and even layer like it says. I leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes, I really like how it doesn't harden or tighten which can be unpleasant. It is recommended to wipe this masque off with moist cotton wool, I have done this but I've also just rinsed it off with water. I have had good results from both.

      I found that this masque left my skin feeling soft and smooth, it was gentle and didn't irritate my skin or leave me with any soreness or redness like some other face masques have in the past. I think this is because of the nice, natural ingredients. My skin tone looked brighter after using this and my face also looked a lot smoother as well as feeling smooth. My skin is prone to dryness, especially in the colder months and this masque left it feeling moisturised. I wasn't expecting good moisturising results so I was pleasantly surprised by this.

      I enjoyed using this because of the texture of the product and the lovely, light scent of roses. I really like the results of this masque and I definitely recommend it, although I think it's quite expensive. I bought mine from Amazon for £12.99 for only 30mls. Luckily, the masque spreads easily and you don't have to use too much of it.

        A lovely and relaxing face masque which hydrates and softens the skin

        I love spending time pampering and I enjoy using lots of different products to help me do so. Everyone who knows me knows this and so I very gratefully received the Weleda Wild Rose Smoothing Masque for my last birthday.

        What does the product do?
        The product is an intensive masque which promises to smooth out and nourish the skin and to help to combat the first signs of aging. It claims that it will leave the skin looking clean and clear, and to reduce the appearance of fine lines while strengthening the skin's natural defence barrier. The product has been designed for those with tired and in need of hydration. It is packed full of natural ingredients such as Wild Rose Seed Oil, Peach Kernel, Mallow and Sweet Almond Oil.

        How do you use the product?
        The product needs to be applied to clean, dry skin. You apply the product to the face and neck, carefully avoiding the eye and lip area. You then relax and leave the product to get to work for about 20 minutes. Once the time is up, you remove the product using a damp, warm flannel and then rinsing off the excess with warm water. You then need to pat the face dry and moisturise as usual. The product can be used once or twice a week.

        Packaging and Price
        The product comes contains within a pink and white plastic which looks quite pretty on display in my bathroom. There is little design on the bottle and other than the product name and logo, and a description of the product, the bottle is rather plain. It comes with a white screw top lid on which the product can stand. The face masque will cost you around £15 and it can be bought from large department stores and also from a range of online websites.

        Application and Performance
        The cream smell just as you would expect it too. It smells strongly of roses but somehow it affords smelling like something your grandma would wear. It has a natural aroma which isn't artificial at all and although it is really evident, it doesn't get sickly or overpowering. The cream has the consistency of a thick face cream. It is very rich and luxurious, and the texture is very smooth and silky. You don't need to use much of the product in order to get the desired results.

        The product glides easily onto the skin without pulling or dragging my skin. It is easy to get a good coverage of the product. It isn't so thick that it can't be spread but it isn't so runny that it's going to go in your eyes either. It stays put on your face so you can wander around the house getting on with jobs if you want to or you could just lay back in the bath. The lovely aroma makes the experience a relaxing one. It feels comfortable on my skin and you can tell that the product will be very hydrating. It hasn't caused my skin any irritations at all.

        The mask does not dry out or tighten on the skin. The only change is that some of the product is absorbed by my skin by the time the twenty minutes are up. Before wiping it off, I massage the mask into the skin to get the full benefit of it. It is easily removed with a damp flannel, although it does take a few wipes before it's all gone. Once it's off, my skin does look a little pink but this is probably because of all the wiping.

        Once my skin is dry, it does feel very hydrated and soft to the touch. My skin looks brighter and healthy, and in a better condition, and it does remain this way for a few days. Despite its heavy and rich texture, it hasn't caused me to develop any blemishes on my face which is a good thing as my skin can be quite spot prone. I can't say that I've noticed a reduction in my fine lines, and I don't have many to start with, but maybe this will change with continued use. The aroma lingers lightly on the skin. If you like this then other products in the rose collection include a face lotion, night cream, eye cream and facial lotion capsules.

        Conclusion
        All in all, this is a great hydrating face masque which leaves my skin feeling really soft and smooth. It is easy to use, full of natural ingredients and it smells really natural and relaxing. It hasn't reduced the appearance of the my fine lines so far but maybe it will with time. It has left my skin looking healthier and brighter so I am happy with this masque.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Great product that delivers what is says it will

          I first came across this product at my Mother in Laws house, and after I gave it a go I bought some for myself. I purchased the 30ml masque from my local health food store for £12.95.

          The masque is part of a whole beauty care line by Weleda, which includes day and night creams, eye creams and facial oils.

          The product comes in a soft plastic tube with a white screw top lid that is easy to use and does not leak; it also helps the masque to stand up on a shelf. In addition it comes in a cardboard box, both are coloured in varying shades of pink from light to dark, which makes the product quite attractive looking.

          The masque contains high quality cold-pressed wild rose seed oil and peach kernel oil that strengthen the skin's natural protective barrier and give the skin extra nourishment. Mallow extract also soothes the skin whilst improving the skin's renewal process.

          The masque has the following ingredients:

          Water (Aqua), Prunus Persica (Peach) Kernel Oil, Glycerin, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Alcohol, Rosa Moschata Seed Oil, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Kaolin, Malva Sylvestris (Mallow) Extract, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Fragrance (Parfum)*, Limonene*, Linalool*, Citronellol*, BenzylAlcohol*, Geraniol*, Citral*, Eugenol*, Farnesol*, Xanthan Gum. *from natural essential oils.

          It is recommended that you use the product twice per week. The masque is quite thick and smells of fabulous roses, which is one of my favourite smells. To use the masque I cleanse my face and neck and apply the masque quite thinly, it is recommend that use cover up to 1-2mm thick on the tube, also I avoid the eye area. I leave the masque to dry which takes around 10-15 minutes, but longer if I am in the bath of shower due to the steam, and then rinse off with clean water. You are supposed to use cotton wool or tissue, but I find this to be a faff and also messy and a bit more time consuming as you still need to rinse your face with water anyway. I only use the masque once a week or maybe once every two weeks, but it has improved my skin overall.

          After I have used the masque my face feels softer and look more radiant, it definitely improves my skin and addressees any issues in terms of dryness. I have combination skin and it works well and I have not experienced any irritation.

          Overall I would recommend this product to others as it smells great, is easy to apply and make your skin feel softer, more radiant and less dry. The only downside I have is that it is quite expensive.
