Although this is designed for rough skin, I use this before bed on my face. It has helped immeasurably with forming a barrier overnight from bacteria that forms acne. It is a thick, greasy product so it is difficult to use during the day but overnight it is a really awesome moisturizer. This has a strong scent of cirtus peel which is quite nice. I recommend this highly, overnight it leaves no residue (it will during the day because it takes hours to absorb) and leaves a wonderful soft skin behind.
This is a great product for dry hands. It works really good for hands and feets. My childeren and husband love it too. I recommend it to everybody.
I love this cream when I need a really intense moisturizer, and the smell is soooo divine!
I can only say good things about all Weleda products. Skin Food is no exception. I'm amazed at how a tiny, (and I mean tiny dab on my hands at night), allows me to wake up to beautifully moisturized hands the next morning. I also love the subtle, natural scent!
I just love this cream for its rich texture, its healing properties and its delightful smell.
It is an amazing product and I am using it every evening before going to bed since five years ago. The cream has an expiry date, is natural, and smells great!
This product is the best natural one I have found yet for very dry hands. It doesn't quickly rinse off and really works. It does leave a slight film on the hands if applied generously but it's worth it for the effect.
great for use at night as it is oily! leaves skin super moisturized and soft.
This stuff is the real deal! I have the driest, most damaged skin on the planet - especially on my legs, from years of broiling my fair skin in the sun back in the day. I have tried everything on the market to remedy this situation, but nothing has worked - UNTIL NOW! Skin Food is a perfect name for this product, because that's exactly what it does, it feeds that dry skin and makes it softer. It's on the pricey side, but it's oh so worth the money! If you have damaged skin, give it a try. I don't think you'll regret it.
I have a drawer full of unfinished products that didn't make the grade but Skin Food is one that I consistently use up and purchase again. It is thick and a bit greasy but in Calgary's dry climate that's what works! Makes a huge difference in my nails and cuticles. Highly recommend.
All things Weleda are great and this is no exception. Best used at night as it is oily, If you have very dry or problem hands, I recommend this.
This product is awesome! Comparable to spa products for hands and feet. I get very painful cracked skin on my fingerpads and using this nightly has healed them completely. It also smells heavenly!! I highly recommend this product.
I'm using this product as night cream. It's a bit too oily for daytime use but perfectly safe for face. Only downside is container of old-fashioned metal tube which is hard to squeeze. Plastic tube or glass jar is preferred.
The best hand cream and spreads well enough to use all over in the winter. No, it won't cure very dry skin, but it sure helps.
Love this "skin food".
I received this as a gift last year from my son and have since bought it for my friends. I use it on a daily basis and love it. Does everything it says it will.
This is a great hand cream. None of the yuckies, an nice feel, and a pleasant aroma. The smaller size is great for my purse, the larger for around the house.
This is the best hand cream i've ever used! I've been using it for a couple of years now and absolutely swear by it. I am very fair and prone to dry skin and my hands tend to get quite dry in the winter and sometimes red and cracked skin around the knuckles. Not when i use this cream!! it works!! and it's all natural..no harmful parabens or preservatives...LOVE IT! :-D. I also use it on my face in the winter.
This smells great and comes in a convenient size. However, I bought it because my hands were very dry and I find that while it soothes, it doesn't cure dry skin.
I love this product. During winter months my hands would get dry and sore,but this stuff works and my skin feels great now! I will continue to purchase.
This is one of my must have products. The formulation is very rich and works perfectly as a night time moisturizer for my dry skin. It has a subtle pleasant clean/natural scent. It has never caused my skin to breakout or clog my pores. Highly recommended!
A great product for dry to very dry skin. The advantage is that depending on the season, you don't even have to moisturize your dry skin with this cream every day. You can apply it every other day because its richness and oils make even very dry skin stay moisturized much longer than many other body creams out there. Love it, Been using it for 3 years+. Much better than creams containing wax or vaseline or paraffin (the latter two are not even healthy for you).
I love this product! It is very hydrating - and when well blended and buffed into the skin, it brings out the natural glowing of the skin! My husband now uses it for his dry hands it, and wants me to order some more now. I will be ordering more. :) happy costumer.
I'm outside all summer - barefoot - and this cream has been a miracle. It deals with my dry feet, elbows, hands. As reviewed earlier, it does leave a film but I use it only at night and by morning everything is smooth. The scent is pronounced but my husband likes it also so we both use it.
I love this stuff! It says it's made for dry skin like elbows, but I use it on my face. It leaves my skin super soft (great for counter-balancing the effects of benzoyl peroxide) and doesn't make me break out. In fact my skin is clearer the mornings after I use it than the days that I don't. The only downside is that it does leave a bit of a film, so I can't use it in the morning, but using it at night seems to be enough anyway.
If something works really well I don't really care ho it smells or how much there is. I just want it to work. I guess it worked OK but I'm not sure if it was any better than a product half it's price. Add in the fact that it smell like piine trees in my opinion and it just doesn't cut it for me. I guess like all skin care products it just depends on how it works for you. For me there was no wow factor.
this works really well on tough spots. I even had my husband use it on his white and cracked elbows. It works wonders.
My favorite Weleda product! My skin is extremely dry and I can use this heavy lotion on my face (before bed) and body. I wish I could find the larger bottle though...
love it, love it, love it. LOOOOVE how it hydrates and protects my skin (I got yery dry skin during the winter months), love the scent, love all weleda products... .
If you do want a naturally deep moisturizing sensation,,,this will hit the spot. However, if you are not into oily creams, this product is not for you.
I REALLY like this product. The consistency is comparable to an ointment. It does have a somewhat strong scent to it, although it dissipated after a short while. I would not think it's suitable for the face, but for rough, dry skin like the knees, elbows or feet. One application(it is now 48 hours later), and my skin feels amazing!
Well, the product description says clearlly: "... for dry and rough skin", doesn't it..
And it works wonders on my kids little faces during the wintertime when the air is dry and cold. Great for outdoors!!!!! Of course, it might be a littlt to oily to wear under make-up, but anyway that is not what it is made for.
I got it because I heard it's good for blemishes and pimples. However, this is not true. It is very thick and oily. Probably good for people with dry skin that needs nutrients and lots of oil. It does make skin more soft. However, my skin is fine as it is and it did not help with the breakouts.
I got the Skin Food as a present for my birthday. My skin is really dry and if I breakout, it leaves a mark even if I don't touch them. I tried everything, herbal to chemical, to help since I was 12. Now I am 26.
This is the first ever product that worked towards hydrating my skin and it worked the first time I used it.
