Honest reviews


Very soothing, fast absorbing, not oily at all

I was looking for a gentle moisturizer and soother for my irritable sensitive skin, and I’ve always been impressed with the Weleda line, and based on the other good reviews, I purchased this.So far it is really gentle and soothing, just as its name implies. It’s surprisingly absorbent, meaning it has little ‘slip’ to it, you put it on and your fingers don’t even feel like anything was on them a second later.I use Retin A on my skin a few times a week (for collagen building, anti aging effects), but although I love the long term effects, it creates a lot of flakiness and I need something soothing for the ‘off days’ when I don’t use it, and this seems like a good bet for that.It has seemed to quiet down some of my redness. It is a tiny amount, but I am using just a little bit, and mixing it with another cream I use (an oxygen cream sold by a professional makeup store), and the two together really give my skin a bright but calmed look. But if one was using this product undiluted to apply to the entire face, using even once a day, you would very likely go through a tube in two weeks.

Great face lotion

This face lotion doesn’t break me out, the ingredients are natural and it goes on smooth. It’s a bit pricey but well worth the price. I did find that I went through this lotion is bit faster than I expected, but that could just be because I like it so much.

Love it

This is a nice, gentle moisturizer, it has a faint rose smell but doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin at all. I’m very pleased with this as well as their eye cream. It has been difficult to find a product that didn’t make my skin break out or swell. This cream is so light and is absorbed into my skin with no greasy residue or skin irritation. I love it!

Best natural facial lotion

I LOVE this facial lotion. It doesn’t feel greasy at all and is the perfect texture/consistency to moisturize my very dry pregnancy skin but not too heavy or thick that I feel like there is something on my face. I am very picky when it comes to lotion as I hate the feeling of greasiness or something lingering on my skin, but this lotion gets absorbed immediately, fixing the dryness and then I forget I ever put it on. Until I can use retinol creams (for anti-aging!) again when my baby is born, this is perfect.

Light, soft lotion

I love this lotion. Its perfect for daytime wear underneath makeup. Its super light yet moisturizing. No harsh chemicals. I never notice the almond scent. Its safe. The EWG (Environmental Working Group) approves of Weleda products!

Too Drying

I like the smell of this product as it is mild. It is also mild on skin. But…it made my skin dry after a while, it is not really that moisturizing as I had hoped.

Is it doing anything?

It doesn’t feel like it’s doing anything for me. Right after putting this on I still feel dry and have to put on other stuff. And I was hoping it’d smell like lovely almond, but it doesn’t smell like anything (except kind of lotion-y).

this lotion was a welcome addition to my beauty arsenal. the non-poisonous nature is the biggest draw but it also performed adequately and the lil bottle is cute/fun

This lotion really work well to moisturize my face, but did cause me to break out.

I wish this product didn’t cause me to break out because it did a wonderful job moisturizing my face. I have combination skin. Even my dry patches I usually have with regular lotions or night cream couldn’t moisturize the way how this product does. Also, I enjoy the light almond scent.

Great face lotion!

I found this recommended on a website that rates products based on ingredients that have been proven to irritate skin/allergies/etc. This was listed at the top of the list as being gentle on skin, so I tried it. Now I love it and will always come back to it. It’s really moisturizing w/o irritation and greasiness. Amazon offers subscribe/save, too, so you save a few bucks. Highly recommend!
