I have quite sensitive skin and I need to be cautious about the products that I use on it. At the same time, I am fast approaching 30 so I need to make sure that I'm taking proper care of my skin to prevent me from getting wrinkles and fine lines too soon. For these reasons, I chose to purchase the Wild Rose Smoothing Night Cream by Weleda.
What does the product do?
The product promises to deeply hydrate the skin as you sleep. It claims that it will nourish the skin and to that it will promote healthy skin regeneration which reduce the appearance of fine lines. It will brighten the skin removing signs of dullness and dryness and it will leave the skin soft, supple and glowing with health. It contains rose oil and evening primrose oil which hydrates the skin, while nourishing it deeply. It also contains Olive Oil which contains Vitamin E, Peach Oil and Almond Oil.
How do you use the product?
The product needs to be applied to skin that has been cleansed and dried. It is obviously designed to be used in the night as is suggested by the name. You take some of the cream and massage it into the skin on the face and neck until it has been fully absorbed. You should use the product once a night.
Packaging and Price
The product comes contained within a small bottle which is coloured with different shades of pink merging into white. It looks pretty and eye catching and it has the product name at the top. It has a white screw top lid which is easy to open and close. The product is quite pricey and it will cost you around £14 for 30ml. It can be bought from large department stores and also from a range of online websites.
Application and Performance
The product is white in colour and it has quite a rich consistency. The product has quite a strong aroma of roses which smells natural and not artificial at all. It is quite evident as you can smell it as you're dropping off to sleep so you will need to make sure that you like the aroma as you can't ignore it. I find it quite relaxing and it's a fragrance which I associate with sleeping now. The product has a luxurious feel and it leaves you feeling pampered.
The product feels nice on my skin and it glides over my face easily. It has a rich consistency but it is still easy to massage into the skin. I have combination skin which is oily with a couple of dry patches. Because of this I don't over apply the product and I use it sparingly on my face. It is easily absorbed by my face with minimal massaging. It feels completely comfortable on my skin and it hasn't caused me any irritations or discomfort. It leaves my skin feeling moisturised straight away and relieves all feeling of tightness and dryness caused by my facial cleanser.
It doesn't feel greasy on my face and it doesn't leave my skin feeling unclean during the night. It leaves a sheen on my skin which I really wouldn't like in a day cream but which doesn't really matter in a night cream. Even though my skin can be prone to developing blemishes, this hasn't caused me to develop any spots which was a pleasant surprise after reading all of the oils which are included in the product. When I wake up in the morning, my skin is so soft and smooth. It looks bright and healthy, and my skin seems plumper. It hasn't banished the few fine lines which I already have on my face but I do feel like it will prevent me from getting too many more too quickly because it is so hydrating.
All in all, this is a rich and luxurious night cream which is packed full of natural ingredients. It deeply hydrates and nourishes my skin during the night so that it is left softer and more healthy looking in the morning. It doesn't cause me to develop any blemishes and it doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy or unclean. It is quite expensive and you only get a small amount but it is worth the expense in my opinion. I will definitely be repurchasing this night cream again.
WHAT IS IT?
A night cream from Weleda scented with rose and with an intensive formula for deep penetration into the skin.
HOW DO YOU USE IT?
Cleanse your face and neck using a gentle cleanser then apply the Weleda night cream using gentle upwards motions, massage into the skin until it has absorbed.
IS IT ANY GOOD?
I've been using Weleda products on myself and clients for a number of years now and this cream is very effective. It has a rich buttery smell with a very feminine natural rose scent, I like the smell of rose when it's kept natural and this is not synthetic at all. The cream is quite thick and takes longer than my usual night cream to absorb into my skin, it's greasier than I thought it would be when I first bought it but that doesn't mean it's unpleasant to use and it feels very relaxing as I massage it into my skin.
I use it to prevent the signs of aging because I don't have any wrinkles yet but it helps as I am feeling run down just now with my newborn baby who is waking for feeds regularly during the night. It helps to brighten my skin and brings back some elasticity to make me appear more alert and fresher. I have noticed that my skin looks very refreshed in the morning when I go into the bathroom to begin my morning routine but the cream does leave a slight greasy residue in places so I have to be scrupulous with my cleansing after I have used the Weleda Wild Rose Smoothing Night Cream.
One of my ladies is 66 and she has been using Weleda products for many years, she has the most beautiful dewy skin that a lady half her age would be proud of. I telephoned her this morning to ask her opinion on the smoothing effects of this cream and she has nothing but praise for it, stating that it plumps out her skin to such a degree that her lighter wrinkles will smooth out completely and even the deeper ones around her eyes and mouth become much less noticeable.
