Food for your skin? Yep, that's right folks. We're testing Weleda's Skin Food and letting you know how well it moisturizes dry skin!


Weleda Skin Food (, $12)Name this product:

Weleda Skin Food (, $12)

What the product claims to do:

This product helps maintain skin's natural balance thanks to its potent plant extracts. It moisturizes and soothes skin all over the body, especially dry areas like knees, elbows and feet.

How it worked for me:

This lotion gave my skin a nice level of moisture without leaving a big greasy feeling. Two days later, my skin was still soft so that was impressive!

How this product looks and feels:

The lotion is white and packaged in a compact green tube. It feels heavier on skin than a light lotion, so you just need to rub it in a bit.

What I liked about this product:

I loved the natural, safe ingredients and the nice moisture this lotion provides!

What I would change about this product:

The size of the bottle was very small. I'd prefer a larger bottle that would last longer.

I would recommend this product for:

I would recommend this product for women who are natural product junkies. It feels great knowing that your lotion is made up of safe ingredients! Also, anyone who needs a deep hydrating formula for their dry skin.

If relevant, how I felt about the scent of this product:

Initially when I applied the cream to my skin, I wasn't crazy about the scent. But it definitely doesn't linger so it's easy to grow accustomed to.
