Weleda Skin Food

I read about this in Sali Hughes book “Pretty Iconic” and thought that I should get a tube, especially as it wasn’t too expensive and could be bought at Holland and Barrett. 

I’m not sure that I really knew what I was going to do with this, so after a first try, I put it away. 

Then it’s moment arrived. My hands had got so dry that they had split. I decide to get my tube of Food Skin out of the drawer and use it as hand cream over night. The next day my skin has started to repair itself. I was so impressed with this. I kept using it for a few more days. 

It’s second job, was my legs becoming dry and flaky. Food Skin made them better overnight. 

I now know, that it is the product to have around, when your skin needs rescuing. I’m not sure that I would use it on my face (you can) as it feels rich and a bit greasy. 

It has a medicinal smell about it. Not unpleasant at all but not my favourite smell. It doesn’t put me off from using the product though.

I’m really not sure how I missed this product, as I have used Weleda Calendula Nappy Cream and thought that this was a great product for babies bottoms.  

For those who have not heard of the brand, Weleda is a German company that began in 1921 as a pharmaceutical laboratory, with a medicinal plant garden. Today it is a manufacturer of holistic natural cosmetics. 

Worth a try. Comment below and let me know what you think too.
