Weleda Almond Range/ facial care for dry and sensitive skin
Weleda is one of those brands that cooperate with nature to create a natural products with healthy ingredients.The new Almond Soothing facial care for dry and sensitive skin range is one of them.
“The almond is full of minerals and vitamins. It provides unsaturated fatty acids, high quality protein and on top of that, tastes delicious. So it is probably no surprise that the almond scores high in skin care. Nowadays, our largest sensory organ, the skin, is exposed to all sorts of hardships: environmental influences, stress and an unbalanced diet among them. That’s why it can become sensitive, dry and irritated. Almond oil is one of the most valuable skin care oils for helping to soothe irritated skin, enveloping it with a protective layer.
As the oil from the almond is similar in structure to the outer lipid layers of the skin, the skin can absorb its ingredients very well. The very high content of unsaturated fatty acids is not only healthy for the heart and brain but also strengthens the hydro-lipid mantle of the skin and protects it from water loss. The vitamin E in the almond is a known antioxidant that fights free radicals and thus counteracts the ageing process of our skin. Irritated skin is well protected and can recover and find its way back to natural beauty” – says the beauty experts from Weleda.
Almond Soothing Facial Oil* is a mild, soothing oil for sensitive and unbalanced skin. Perfect for extremely dry skin to use daily, morning and evening, or as extra protection when the skin is exposed to wind and cold weather. Weleda Almond Soothing Facial Oil contains high quality organic almond oil and plum kernel oil, to make the skin soft and supple whilst strengthening its natural protection.
Ingredients: Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Prunus Domestica Seed Oil, Prunus Spinosa Flower Extract.
How to use:
Weleda Almond Soothing Facial Oil can be used on its own to provide basic care for sensitive skin or to protect the skin from the elements during the day. Spread several drops in the hand and then apply gently to cleansed, moist skin.
To remove eye make-up apply a few drops to a moist cotton wool pad and gently stroke over the eye area. To regenerate extremely dry skin during the night, gently massage a small amount into the skin using the fingertips. This is particularly effective on sensitive skin areas which are prone to development of wrinkles such as eye lids, neck and décolletage.
Tip: Weleda Almond Soothing Facial Oil can be combined with Weleda Almond Soothing Facial Cream to make an extra-rich treatment. Mix a small amount of the cream and oil in the palm of the hand and apply gently to face, neck and décolletage.
Weleda has been a favourite brand of mine for years now. I have been using their products on my child and his dry/ eczema prone skin love them. My skin is dry and especially Autumn/ Winter can become very flaky. The Almond Soothing Facial Oil is a really lovely and feels gentle on the skin. I use it in the morning after a have washed my face and than i apply the Almond Soothing Cream. It is very moisturizing and if your skin is not extremely dry you can get away by using only the oil without applying the face cream on top. In the evening i like to apply it on dry skin. The consistency feels a bit thicker when applied on dry skin, but i like the result that the oil gives me in the morning. I gently massage it into my face until my skin absorb the oil. The Soothing Facial Oil does calm my skin and makes it feel radiant and healthy looking. It does not have a scent which is always a plus if you have a sensitive skin.
It comes in a dark navy blue glass bottle with a plastic lid. You get 50 ml of product for £15.95 price tag.

If i had to choose one skincare product to treat my skin throughout Autumn/ Winter , it will definitely be this face cream. I have never come across such a deep moisturizing face cream. The consistency is very light, but ones applied this cream gives my skin an amazing boost and glow. After i apply it in the morning i have noticed that the cream does not absorb in my skin completely. It feels like it creates a barrier between my dry skin and the outside environment. The Almond Soothing Cream gives my skin so much glow and elasticity. After a few hours, when the cream has fully absorbed, my skin looks healthy and incredibly soft. I will definitely purchase this cream again! I would recommend to get a sample and try it at home. It is amazing skincare product for colder months!
It comes in a metal tube, which i think is great, as it is travel friendly. You get 30 ml product for £ 13.95 price tag.
Almond Soothing Facial Lotion* is a light hydrating moisturiser that absorbs quickly to balance and protect sensitive skin. This fragrance-free moisturiser gently protects and cares for skin, maintaining its natural balance of oils and moisture.Weleda Almond Soothing Facial Lotion (formerly Almond Moisture Cream) is a mild, unperfumed, hydrating moisturiser made from the finest organic almond oil and plum kernel oil which make the skin soft and supple and improve its natural protection. Excellent for use below make up.
Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Glycerin, Hydrolyzed Beeswax, Prunus Domestica Seed Oil, Xanthan Gum, Lactic Acid.
How to use: Apply morning and evening to cleansed skin on the face, neck and chest, gently massaging in. Apply only as much as the skin can fully absorb. For dry skin, as a result of health or environmental influence, Weleda Almond Soothing Facial Lotion can be used in combination with the more strongly protective Almond Soothing Facial Cream, or it can be mixed with a little Almond Soothing Facial Oil to produce a richer cream.
My thoughts: This cream is a lighter version of the Soothing Facial Cream. So if you don’t fancy a very deep hydration treatment (or perhaps our skin does not need it) you can go for this one. It is very light face moisturizer and feel very comfortable on the face. I can not comment on the ” balancing” the natural oils on my face kinda benefits as my skin is not combination, but overall i think it is a great day moisturizer and primer for your makeup.

It feels like Weleda really done a great job in the range especially to benefit those people with sensitive skin. Or people, like me, who like to prepare and really take care of heir skin during colder months.
