Apparently, the original Skin Food cream is sold every 23 seconds. I am not surprised, to be honest.
This is a cult product, and rightly so. Used by makeup artists, celebrities and skin care lovers all over the World.
I have finished numerous green tubes myself over the years, and here is why.
Skin Food by Weleda has been out since 1926, and the fact that, with all those non-stop new launches, it is still around says a lot.
It is a universal rich cream which instantly makes the dry and rough skin feel and look better. Think about that glossy healthy looking skin. But don’t worry, if glossy is not your thing – there is now also a light version available for combination/oily skin types.
While it can be used everywhere, I love using it on
Natural deodorants have been a huge thing lately. And not only in the beauty industry but among my girlfriends, too. And most of them could not be less interested in beauty trends.
While I am personally not about all organic “clean” products, I’ve decided to try the “natural deodorant”, as well. And while Malin & Goetz (Nordstrom, Net a Porter, Space NK) seemed like the most popular and effective based on the recommendations I saw, I went for Weleda because… rose, obviously. I mean, gimme all the rose scented products.
On Weleda’s website we read that with this deodorant “the sweating process is allowed to continue its essential job, but the odour is inhibited” which sounds great but is it really that way?
One of my best girlfriends, who is like a spokesperson for Weleda and always raves about their products, was not impressed with their deodorants (she uses baking soda or lemons now) but I’ve decide to try it anyways. Rose, remember?
So what are my impressions?
First of all,
Back in March I was away to a spa trip for my Birthday with one of my best girlfriends. Of course, I had to check her favourite beauty products as she has a very good taste in everything. And it was all mostly Weleda. I haven’t tried that many products (here is a review of the birch body scrub), so I had to go Weleda shopping when I came home.
And I’ve got myself their Citrus Creamy Body Wash.
And it is pretty nice, I have two main requirements for a shower gel – for it to smell nice, and not to be drying, and it ticks both boxes.
With my very dry skin, I don’t really believe in moisturizing shower products but this out isn’t drying (no SLS in the ingredients list), as I already said, so that is good. I use a cream/butter/oil/lotion afterwards anyway.
As for the scent – it was exactly what I was looking for, a zesty, invigoration and uplifting. I was looking for a new morning shower gel, as I
I love a good body scrub! I always have at least three different options on my bathroom shelve. And today I’d like to show you the one that I’ve been really loving this hot summer season. It is Weleda’s Birch Body Scrub.
Why do I like this scrub so much? Mostly because of the scent, the brand says it is birch leaf extract and essential oils (rosemary?). And I’d say that it has an uplifting and invigorating aroma, fresh and clean scent – very unisex. I don’t know what it is, but it is one of my favourites; the kind of fragrance that makes you want to
About time for me to write about my Winter 2020 favourites. If you want to check out my Autumn favourites, here they are.
So which products stood out to me beauty, style, books and shows wise?
Let’s start with makeup, as there are just a few products in this category:
YSL Touche Eclat, £26 from John Lewis, Harrods, Selfridges and Nordstrom. Touch Eclat needs no introduction, I’ve lost my count on how many of these I’ve used up. It has that a light-reflective effect which makes you look fresher; the formula is not heavy or detectable on the skin.
This is such a brilliant highlighter, it is more on the glowing side but without being over-the-top. Exactly the kind of product you would expect from Queen Tilbury. It gives you that incredible polished look.
Rouge Bunny Rouge new Glassy Gloss (review and swatches)
I wore quite a few of the new RBR glosses, I wrote a detailed review about them. Can be worn sheer stain-like or opaque and glossy. The one I chose for this feature is Berry Sorbet, a creamy opaque berry pink. For me it’s “my lips but better” kind of shade.
Burberry Cat Lashes Mascara, £24 from Burberry
Soft and flexible brush allows you to layer and built up the effect. I find it to be giving great result, elongating the lashes, opening up the eye and lasting all day long (on me at least).
byTerry Ligne Blackstar in So Black (review and swatches)
A long-time favourite. Intense, ultra black, long-lasting and
