I purchased this as I was in need of a super intense moisture hit after suffering really dry skin for a week. I had heard so much noise about this product so wanted to give it a go! It is super thick, and I would definitely not recommend using it in the morning under makeup - it is far too thick, and sometimes it felt like my skin wasn't breathing. However, I would apply this product of an evening when my skin was extra dry or I'd spent a day in the sun (I'm a typical Rudolph nose in summer despite wearing zinc!) - I would wake up the next morning and my skin was baby fresh, soft and nourished! It has never left my skin congested, despite feeling thick and gooey. I only ordered the smaller size to see how it went, and I will definitely be purchasing the bigger size now - hot summer days or the cold winter air, I know this beauty is going to stay in my life!

Too rich for me
I received a deluxe sample of this and was keen to give it a go after reading so many people rave about it. Unfortunately, the formula is too rich and oily for me. I might give the light version a try instead.

Skin felt amazingI have very dry skin, and dry heels, I have tried absolutely everything on my feet and nothing works, this cream has made a massive difference to my dry feet, and the best part it doesn’t feel greasy on your skin, but moisturises so well, and smells really fresh
Beautiful as a balmIt's perfect size for a lap balm to carry around I used it to touch up my dry lips and face in the hot months. It smells great and works amazing.
Really liked this for my dry under eyesI had really dry, almost scaly patches under my eyes, and this helped to sort them out. It was a bit too think to use anywhere else, but I did really like how it worked for the dry patches.
Thirsty skin loves this stuffverified purchaserI use this to lock in facial oils of a night time if my skin is a little on the thirsty side. It’s very thick and greasy, however you’ll wake up with baby soft skin. It’s a bit too thick for day use in my opinion, but I love having this in my cabinet and a little goes a long way.
Very thick, great for dry skinThis is a very thick cream, so if I use it on my face for rosacea or something similar I use it sparingly, and it does the trick. But because it's so thick it works really well on dryer parts of the body like elbows, heels, etc.
The best!Weleda Skin food is the best cream I have ever used for my heels. I didn’t set out to use this cream on my heels, but began putting some on when I did my legs. I can honestly say my very dry heels have never looked better, there is no dryness anymore! It’s much less greasy than ‘heel balm’ I now use it solely on my heels once a day.
Will bail you out if you've over sensitised your skinSometimes I use too many acids/exfoliants (oops) and Weleda skin food is always there to save the day. Its VERY thick, but it works wonders. It soothes and hydrates my skin without blocking pours. Smells like essential oils which I love too. Bit expensive for size though - 30ml is very small.
fulfillingverified purchaserthis moisturizer is like nothing else! its so thick and heavy but my skin just absolutely loves it! this cream is amaazing for anyone who has super dry skin that needs to feel nourished sooth and hydrated. liter rally dont think i could live without it now
Very richI received a sample of this it's very rich and creamy I liked it for the body but not the face would be great for the hands
Too rich for meI received a deluxe sample of this and was keen to give it a go after reading so many people rave about it. Unfortunately, the formula is too rich and oily for me. I might give the light version a try instead.
EnrichingPerfect for winter dryness, so enriching, the smells not great , but this is great for my winter lips and cuticles.
She thicc girlI love the smell of this cream, but it is very thick. I have dry, eczema prone skin, and it’s too thick for the face. I’ve started to mix it with another moisturiser to thin it down a bit, and then it’s great to use on the face. Leaves my skin sooooo soft.
Amazed how good it is!I loathe moisturizing my body. Especially when my whole body is left feeling greasy! This product surprised me! It absorbs fast and feels amazing on!
my go-toI use this everywhere except for my face and love it! My skin is dry, dry, dry so anything I use needs to be super hydrating.
Amazing!Amazing product I can not live without it. Ridiculously moisturising for ridiculously dry skin
Absolute winnerThis is a great product. It's an instant fix when your hands have got all dry and cracked, but it's also great anywhere else on your body including the face. I use it to fix that dry flaky skin around your nose nose you get after you've had a cold. Love it. And this size is small enough to fit in my kit bag at work.
Working the magic!I purchased this on a recommendation from a friend after suffering from severe dry skin.
Definitely takes a little getting used to, can leave a bit of a film on top of the skin, I'll often put this on before going to bed whilst reading a book and just let it work it's magic. My skin is always feeling great in the morning!!
Excellent to soothe and rehydrate dry skinI purchased Weleda Skin Food after it was highly recommended by those from a beauty blog
My feet and heals had become very dry after wearing sandals in the summer heat.
I was soaking them in a bucket of Epsom salts and then lathering my feet in half a bottlle of moisturiser at night
Now I only need to apply a small amount of Weleda after my shower and they are soft and hydrated.<...Read More
NourishingGood moisturizer quite hydrating.
too thick and greasyThis product just wasn't for me. Even using the most smallest amount my skin was greasy for hours afterwards, and its so thick to apply. Would be more beneficial for me if it were lighter in texture!
Super hydrating and nourishing!This cream is very thick with a strong natural scent. It's more suited for the warmer months as it's very hydrating and protective. Really good for dry skin.
Perfect hand cream to have in your bag!Well worth the purchase! I have eczema and my hands are forever dry. The cream was thick and hydrating and in a few days my hands looked much better.
Old reliableI was skeptical of this when I first purchased as I have oily/decongested skin, but it really surprised me. I like to use it once a week all over my face during winter for a hit of hydration, but it's also been super effective healing a couple of small but weird patches of red bumpy dryness I developed either side of my mouth and just below my nose. It's also an EXCELLENT eye cream if your concer...Read More
Hydrating and Beautifully ScentedI had heard great things about the Skin Food range so had to try it out. It is a lovely moisturiser with a delicious citrus smell that I can’t get enough of. I use this as both a night cream and general moisturiser for my lips and face. I use it both after serums, and I mix it with TO L-Absorbic Acid which I find works beautifully. I wouldn’t recommend it for morning use, as it is quite heavy and ...Read More
good hand creamI originally bought this for my face but found it to be way too thick, and the essential oils were too much for my sensitive skin. However It smells amazing and would make a great hand cream. It would also be good to apply in small amounts to dry patches on the face.
Amazing!I use this on all of my dry spots and it instantly overnight repairs them! Could not be more happy with my purchase. Also use it on my lips.
So moisturizingI got this in a sample pack and had to purchase the full size. It’s so hydrating and my skin feels amazing when I wake up. However it’s super thick so I only wear it in winter as it’s a bit uncomfortable in hot weather. Really good for healing dry patches of skin too.
super plumpingi use this at night around my eyes are i wake up with no puffiness and my lines plumped out. its amaazing to sleep in,
A good thick creamI use this cream on my cuticles, hands & feet and tattoos. It is hydrating and gets rid of any scaly bits, however it is quite thick and greasy (sometimes makes my hands slippery if I use too much) and very fragranced. I would not apply this to my face, but for any weird dry bits (like your elbows before fake tanning, or scaly feet etc) it is great!
ALL TIMEskin food is my go to for moisturising & nourishing my skin, I use for highlighting top of cheek bones too AND ALWAYS bring to night shift as it makes me look less tired & prevents air con drying out skin
Nice smellI like the smell but for me this is too greasy.
Good creamReally good richcream for dry skin.
So versatileThis is a beautiful product that is thick and moisturising. Very versatile product that definitely helps on the skins healing process
Never be withoutI can't remember not having this in my bathroom. So thick and nourishing, my skin loves it!
Best for overnight usageI brought this as I was wanting to start a better skin care routine and saw this was in amongst the top rated. Whilst it is great it is really thick and has a texture like paw paw, it does also leave you with a bit of shine. I recommend using this at night cream just before bed as it does soak in your skin overnight and leave you waking up with smooth skin.
LoveAbsolutely love this product as my go to rescue option for hydration. I use it after the ASAP DNA serum and receive compliments every day after about how glowing my skin looks. Perfect as a spot treatment for dry patches too. I find it very useful in the days after derma rolling where you can peel a little. It’s also the easiest thing to apply after a night out when you can’t be bothered with the...Read More
Great multi purpose moisturiserAmazing multipurpose moisturiser for various areas of the face and body. Easily absorbed , keeps skin smooth soft and hydrated, so glad they have changed the packaging which is an improvementon the old one.
Handbag savourCuticles? Check. Dry elbows or knees? Check. Irritated skin? Check. In-flight mask? Check. This is the best multi purpose product, I keep one in my handbag at all times as the 30ml size is also perfect for travel. You need this!
for dry patchesif you have dry skin like me, you should definately give this a try. it's rich and nourishing and really relives dry skin
for dry patchesif you have dry skin like me, you should definately give this a try. it's rich and nourishing and really relives dry skin
Thick but hydratingI bought this then bought the big one I liked it so much! This stuff smells like a health food shop but works a treat as a night cream. It’s VERY thick so unless your skin is as dry it’s probably not going to work as a day cream as it takes a while to sink in. It’s so hydrating, I wake up glowing and fabulous.
Thirst quenchingly good!This product truly quenches your skins thirst! I mainly use this on my face at night, due to it being a super thick lotion and in the morning, I am left with plump, moisturised skin. If you need a moisturised base for make up, pop this on sparingly half an hour before to allow absorption and it works wonders.
NourishingI use this as a hand cream, I work outside with animals and wash my hand lots so they’re super dry and soak up this thick formula. Love it.
Great Weekly TreatmentYes, this is thick in consistency but I really like it for my super dry skin! I use it on my face 1-2 times a week and also when I have been in an aeroplane.
I tried this size at first to trial it and now I will be purchasing the bigger size.
Thick & richSuper rich and thick cream in winter when you really need it - although I’d only really use it on dry spots not all over.
So richI received a couple samples of this and I love it as a cuticle cream. I find it strengthens my nails really well. I'll definitely purchase the full size once the sample runs out.
great natural highlighterThis is a very rich and quite sticky moisturizer. It works great as a highlight and for when your skin is itchy or especially dry. I wouldn't use it as a day to day moisturizer as it is quite thick.
MiracleThis stuff is amazing. It has a very thick consistency but isn't greasy. I used it around my nose and above my lips where my skin had got very dry and flaky after having a cold for a few weeks. It instantly looked and felt better and the results were long lasting. Not necessary for everyday use but a miracle for those patches of skin that have become out of control dry, cracked or flaky.
Amazing!I cannot recommend this product highly enough! Perfect for dry skin and the 30ml size is perfect for travel.
Weleda Skin FoodBeautiful consistency, hydrates and fixes my skin overnight. Has been a saviour during winter! Can use it all over the body. My fave is hands, face and feet.
Very thickI'm not sure if this product is for everyone... it is very thick. It does however have a lovely scent and is very moisturizing.
Handy trial size if you're undecidedI bought this 30ml size as a trial after reading so much hype online about this product. It has a nice botanical smell, and the consistency is nice and thick. I've been using it as an overnight mask, as well as to help soothe my flaking nose from the flu. My only issue is it requires a lot of re-application, as the effects don't last very long.
I should have bought the biggest tube!This balm is so good. I use it on my 4yo's skin and it definitely has helped the chapped skin from the winter wind. The fragrance is subtle and pleasant, so much so that my child request I apply it every night!
It’s alrightIt’s a rich, very pleasantly scented cream. It’s good for dry skin, it reliefs the dryness. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to have any long-lasting effect so you have to apply it and reapply and reapply.
pocket sizeI love this, use it as a hand balm and it's really rich but really helps with dry skin
Thick!I really like the consistency of this, it's really thick and balmy. So deeply hydrating. I find it's a little too thick to use on my hands but works well on areas like elbows and knees. Also really great at deeply nourishing dry heels. I like the earthy scent too.
LOVE this product!I use this daily on my hands and it helps keep them hydrated, especially in Winter! Also really good for dry cuticles.
Really thick consistencyI might not recommend this to everyone (it's a little thick than what I expected) but I can definitely see when I would be able to use it - when my skin is really really dry.
Great product for dry skinI use this mixed in with my Weleda Sensitive skin lotion for the perfect consistency. Keeps my dry skin nourished during winter.
Restores moisture during cold monthsDefinitely has restored moisture to my skin during the cold months!
No more dry skinI apply this to the dry areas on my face at night, by the next morning the dry patches are gone. Takes a little bit to get past the strong scent but i honestly think it’s worth it for how hydrating it is.
Good for dry skin BUTI think the all the fragrances in this are a bit irritating, otherwise it would be good for dry skin (for sensitivity issues). Also it is thick so doesn't spread the best.
EffectiveThis is a good size to start with as it’s great value for money. I find this cream effective for very dry skin. I use on my hands, elbows and knees. Very hydrating thick moisturiser. Bit too strong for my face, but if someone has extra dry skin this could help.
Very thick - recommend for night use onlyVerrrrry thick cream, too thick to wear during the day.
Would recommend this as a barrier cream to lock in all your serums.
Skin food- worth the hypeI wanted to try this after all of the good reviews I had read.
I applied this cream to dry patches around my chin area bought on by pregnancy. After a few daily applications the redness and irritation lessened.
The consistency is rather thick so only a small amount is required. The scent also reminds me of botanical herbs which is very pleasant.
Nice, but too rich.I liked this product, but maybe as more of a hydration mask for me as it is way too rich and leaves your skin looking wayy too greasy for everyday wear. I have normal skin, maybe this would work better for dry skin but I also found the smell quite strong. If you don't like natural, herby kinds of smells, this may put you off.
A little goes a long wayI have combination skin with oily t-zone and u-zone, so was initially hesitant to try and so only bought the smaller tube on instance of a friend. It's been pretty dry in SA in this year and this product has been a life saver. While I have an oily t-zone the tip of my nose is often quite dry and it's even more obvious when I wear powder foundation. I have this problem no longer, you only need a...Read More
Yes yes and yesI am in love with this stuff. Yes, its thick, and yes it has a strong citrus smell, both of which are generally big no no’s for me but I pop this on after my face oil in the evening and my face locks in all the goodness and moisture and my skin feels so hydrated.
This size bottle is teeny tiny though and therefore i'm nearly through it all in a week, so my pro tip is to invest in the...Read More
Best affordable moisturizerI decided to buy this after seeing a dermatologists skin care routine on YouTube to help my dry, sensitive, dehydrated and kp skin. This replaced my Ordinary moisturizing factors HA cream and I love it over the winter months. Starts off tacky but dries down to a float finish and is a great base for make up. Couldn’t love this product any more.
Cracks goneI usually have cracked heals from work, so this has really really helped heal up and smooth over the cracks and dryness. Very thick so only a small amount is fine
Strong scent but goodI wear this before bed. It has a strong scent and helped with cracked skin. Just make sure the cracked skin is due to dryness and not a worse issue like “athletes foot” type issues.
LoveOk, so i have to admit, it wasn't love at first use with this product. The first time I used it, I found it quite thick and greasy and difficult to apply. However, I soon learnt that the best way to apply it is to emulsify it between your fingers before smoothing over the skin. Yes, the texture is still quite thick and balm like, however, it gives the skin such a nice glow and I wake up the next m...Read More
GoodI use this at night and this product keeps my skin healthy looking and never dry.
skin saverThis stuff is excellent to use on dry skin, chapped lips, and skin that is irritated from to many actives.
LOVE ITI'em really impressed with this moisturizer, after i wash my face and apply acne treatment my face is quite dry, after using this moisturizer my face is instantly hydrated and this lasts the whole night and into the morning
A classic for a reasonLove the smell, Weleda is great quality. At times this can feel too thick and like it sits on the skin, but I've been using this on my hands recently and they absorbed the cream really well. Still best to use before bed though as it does leave a slight residue behind but worth the moisturising benefits.
Super hydratingI sometimes use this moisturiser as a night mask if I need a moisture surge - and it definitely does the job. It is thick, quite greasy, but I don’t mind as it works and I wake up feeling hydrated. The only downside is the smell, it’s quite strong and citrus like, which is not my cup of tea, but I like it and it’s a good value product.
Definitely moisturising but quite thick!I underestimated the reviews I read about this product in regards to it being thick!! It is very thick and I almost hate putting it on because smearing it all over your face almost feels like your pulling your skin apart. But it is very very moisturising and lasts! I have found with a lot of moisturisers especially in winter, i put it on before bed and wake up with dry skin but this one has defini...Read More
Very nice productI have very sensitive skin and it didn’t cause any reactions. The cream is thick and calming and has helped with dry patches
great for dry skin but thickthis is really great for dry skin but it's a pretty thick cream and doesn't spread that easily. smells not very fragranted which I like and keeps dry skin hydrated for a long time
Smells amazingThis product is great for dry skin, I originally tried it as a sample size from Adore and absolutely loved it. It’s great for hands and dry area and smells amazing when applying it. You only need to apply a very small amount so the product will last. Great value for money.
Dry skinVery rich and nourishing for dry skin. Would recommend for night time as well. Oily skin might find this too greasy.
Go to for dry skin!I adore this product! Very rich, nourishing moisturiser (feels like an ointment) that I use on my face, lips and hands. It leaves a dewy/ shiny finish so I usually use it as a night cream in winter. I also love lathering it on my lips as night for an intense treatment- you look a little scary for 5 mins with white lips- but it melts into your skin really well and saves dry lips :)
Great for really dry skin, heels and elbowsI think this is great for dry skin on feet, hands and elbows. It is quite thick, I wouldn't use on my face.
Your skin will drink itThis is my second tube. I need to buy a 20 litre container of it. It works and my skin may feel sticky when it’s on but the next day...wow!
Smells amazingThe smell of this is amazing, smells natural and pretty. A little thicker than I expected but so far I like this product.
Winter necessityBesides a serum, lip balm and what is left of my stock of the Tatcha Indigo Soothing Triple Recovery Cream, the Skin Food from Weleda Skin Food is a necessity in my winter arsenal. It is my daily facial moisturiser, it is one of the few products that seems to shield me from the eczema patches lurking just underneath my skin. I would recommend this product to anyone with dry skin, and see if this w...Read More
Love it !Bought this smaller tube because I had heard that it was great but very thick so I was wary ... but now I can’t wait to buy a bigger tube! With the change of season my skin has gotten so dry, so i have been using this for both my face and my dry cuticles on my hands, and had excellent results. It’s thicker than your typical moisturiser but I don’t think it’s uncomfortable. I wake up in the morning...Read More
enjoyi have normal to dry skin and while this moisturiser does a good job, its so thick! I do not usually enjoy products that take a while to sink in
Great Winter ProductI found this on a youtube video from a well known dermatologist, she used this on her neck & face for when her skin was feeling dry. So far i have used this only at night time as the weather has gotten cooler & am loving it. I bought the small size to trial it out & am really impressed with the price. I have super oily skin which seems to be drying out in the winter so i can see myself re-purchas...Read More
Great all-rounder and well-pricedThis size is perfect for popping in your handbag. I swear by this in winter and use it all over my face and body. It works wonders on dry elbows. I use it in the mornings under makeup but need to let it sink in for a few minutes before applying foundation. I also use it as a night time mask. Highly recommend.
handy tubeHandy sized tubes that is great for dry hands. It's a bit thick but really nourishes the skin
good travel size tubeI LOVE the skin food and this tube is a nice smaller travel sized tube that's handy to take with you/have in your purse for dry hand emergencies
fantastic for dry skinthis is a moisturizing and versatile balm, i keep this in my drawer at work and use it on my hands and wherever my skin feels dry throughout the day
Great for Dry SkinGive immediate hydration to the skin. Love to use this product on the face and body, leaves the skin looking radiant
Smell is so strongI don’t like this moisturiser it’s so thick it’s hard to spread evenly and smells very unpleasant to me. Was a bit disappointed after all the hype but prefer my cocoa butter any day over skin food!
Good moisturiser for very dry skinIt's a good moisturiser especially for very dry skin. I use it on my hands and lips but not so much on my face as it's quite sticky thus it doesn't glide on smoothly. So whenever I need to use it on my face for a boost of hydration in the areas where my skin needs it then i would apply my everyday moisturiser first before I apply this product for a smoother application.
GreasyI don't know why but every Weleda product I try always leaves the GREASIEST film on EVERYTHING. Using this on anything but my elbows is a pain. It's so greasy!!! I don't have this problem with any other brand or something and it was just so weird. Moisturising but SO so greasy. A lot of people seem to like this though but it's just not practical.
My go to dry skin fixerI can't get enough of Skin Food, especially during the hot summer. It is rich and quite moisture/grease intensive and I find it is perfect for my scorched and dry feet, preventing any painful cracked skin and soothing away sun damage and dehydration. I love using it on my lower legs after shaving too and as a hand and cuticle cream whenever I need it. Oh yes, and I love the smell of it too.
