Heavy duty - 05-11-2018 by

I have very dry hands from lots of nappy changes so was searching for something very hydrating. This cream has an interesting herbal smell which I don't love but is also not unpleasant - I'm very fussy when it comes to product scent. I found this cream to be tacky and oily so I only use it before bed. I find it only gives me short term relief of dry hands so would not purchase this product again.

Absolute go to! - 31-10-2018 by

I love Skin Food! I literally use it for everything. Great for dry hands, face and lips.

Does as advertised - 30-10-2018 by

Really hydrates and restores. I could feel and see the difference in skins flakeyness immediately. Cream is quick thick but absorbs rapidly. Good value. Although the scent is pleasant it is a little intense for me, i need a well ventilated area when using haha

LOVE it - 18-10-2018 by

This is such a well-loved product and it is hard to not see why.
It is thick and easily absorbed, any dry areas and immediately improved with a bit of this bad boy!

The only thing I do not like about the product is that after a while of rolling around in my bag the corners of the packaging have broken open - which is a small gripe against such a great product!

So hydrating! - 17-10-2018 by

This cream is rich and smells great. I use it on my face over serums at night and mix it with a lighter day cream for a makeup base. It gives me fantastic dewy skin and has kept my skin hydrated throughout winter.

Use it for everything - 17-10-2018 by

A great cream for everything. I use this as a hand cream, on dry patches of skin, and as a moisturiser when my skin is looking dry. I have found that this cream also helps to heal my cold sores. Once the cold sore becomes scab, I dab some of this cream on to the sore a few times a day and before I got to bed. It speeds up the healing and prevents the scab from cracking and bleeding. Can't live without it.

Great - 12-10-2018 by

Love! I have repurchased this over the years and it is excellent. It is one of those products that you want to have 'just in case'. I use as a face mask sometimes, on my hands when they get very dry, feet and even on my body. Its a great multi use cream.

Winter wonder - 11-10-2018 by

Love this thick cream for very dry hands in winter. It was also the single only thing that calmed horrendously itchy skin during pregnancy - and I tried everything! The smell is quite strong and the product is very oily so I do not use it on the face or neck, but it’s remarkably effective for troublesome dry or broken skin elsewhere on the body.

Good - 02-10-2018 by

Always have this on hand as it's such a great multi-use product. I use it on my lips, as a face mask and even around my nose when it got chapped after a recent head cold. Can't live without it!

Thick and moisturizing - 02-10-2018 by

This moisturizer is thick and moisturizing, it is too think to use in my whole face (sensitive skin which is prone to break outs) but is great for a dry spot on my face and / or body moisturizer

Dry skin saver - 02-10-2018 by

Took me some time to get used to the orange-like smell but I love it now. So good for flaky skin on my hands and lips. I use it as a night time moisturiser on top of serums. Love!!!

Beautiful - 01-10-2018 by

I’m not the biggest fan of the feeling of this moisturiser. I put it on of a night. But SO worth it the next morning when my skin looks and feels amazing. Has been a lifesaver this winter for my dry cracked hands

Dehydrated or dry skin - 01-10-2018 by

Takes a while for my skin to absorb, but i guess because its that moisturising for your skin! Great for super dry skin (including oily or combination skins who are producing more oil for their dehydrated skin)

A great all-rounder - 01-10-2018 by

Such a creamy hydrating product and it smells fantastic too! I use Weleda Skin Food as a hand cream and because I love a dewy, glowy style of makeup i actually take a small amount of this to the high points on my face and just smooth the excess onto the other areas of my face to even it out and it gives my face such a lovely sheen.
Such a diverse and wonderful product and i'm sure it will last for ages but when it finally runs out i will repurchase.

Glowing skin - 28-09-2018 by

I purchased weleda skin food after such rave reviews by makeup artist Katie Jane Hughes and it did not disappoint. Although designed for dry skin especially on rough areas like hands, this product can be used to create a dewy finish or base to your face giving it that fresh glowy look which is what I mainly use this product for. It has a very organic smell which I don't mind at all. I would be weary of using this on oily skin though as it will make you look shinier and makeup would not likely sit well on top of it. However for dry to normal skin, it is fantastic!

Like nothing else - 27-09-2018 by

So thick and moisterising. Perfect for any really dry skin

Best Kept Secret of the Beauty World! - 25-09-2018 by

I absolutely love the Weleda Skin Food. It does what it says. It actually moisturises your skin effenciently and effectively. One tube of Weleda Skin Food will last a very long time. It is so beautiful to use. It transforms dry, sunburnt, chemical burn or windburned skin back to normal. I use it as an overnight mask after exfoliating my skin. Never lets me down and I carry the small tube in my handbag.

Thick, oily moisturiser - 25-09-2018 by

The consistency is really thick but also oily, so takes a little rubbing and patience to absorb. I use this for my hands at night, and find that while it's really moisturising at the time, the next day my hand are dry again... maybe even drier than they were before using the product? Will continue to use every few nights, but undecided at the moment.

Best handcream on the market - 21-09-2018 by

Literally no other handcream works as well as this. The effects of this moisturiser can be felt on my skin days after it is applied, even with multiple hand washes.

Great product for dry skin - 21-09-2018 by

This is a great product for dry skin especially the hands during winter when the skin around the nails tend to dry out. It is great for all dry skin. Easily absorbed and has a lovely scent. Highly recommended all year round

Happy - 20-09-2018 by

This moisturizer is super thick, and not easy to rub in, but it has ‘cured’ my extreme dry scaley legs. Love the smell and it will become a staple, especially around winter when my skin becomes super dry.

Great for dry lips - 18-09-2018 by

We use this product for very dry dehydrated/sun burnt lips, it's better than any other product I have tried.

Staple product! - 18-09-2018 by

I've used Weleda products for years, including this one, but solely for my hands. For the last 6 months, I've been using Skin Food on my face as my primary facial moisturiser and have had no issues with dry skin since.

Florist hands, healed in a tick! - 17-09-2018 by

I have ridiculously dry, dirty & cracking hands thanks to being a full time florist. No hand cream has worked as hard for me as this has - healed overnight, with a major improvement in texture. My roughness smoothed out, the cracks of my hands softened, & my hard calloused skin feels soft & supple. I am totally obsessed, & have told all my florist friends to buy!

Great for feet - 12-09-2018 by

I love to use this cream on the dry skin around my toes & heels. As my feet are locked away in shoes 5 days of the week, the skin develops rough spots between my toes. Skin food softens them up beautifully ready for my pedicure. Just remember to wear socks if applying before bedtime.

Great cream but won't repurchase - 10-09-2018 by

I have really dry hands and my knuckles sometimes crack and bleed in the cold, so after reading all the rave reviews I thought this would be the perfect hand cream.
But while I loved the scent and love Weleda's natural ethos, this wasn't quite right for me (it might be perfect for someone else though!)
The texture is really thick and sticky, and I found I had to use quite a bit of product to spread around and get good coverage on my hands. The tube didn't last me long for the $. It also never really sank in, and was only effective if I put it on at night followed by cotton gloves. And while I love the strong citrus-y scent, I think my sensitive skin couldn't handle the alcohol and perfume in this lotion and my hands sometimes itched after applying.
It is a lovely thick cream, so don't be put off by my experience! But when I want a thick lanolin-based cream, I'll be sticking to Lanolips products.

Good product - 10-09-2018 by

This is a good product, but it's very greasy. Great for dry skin but might be more easily absorbed if it's mixed with a moisturiser cream. I apply it on its own when my skin is very dry and it definitely offers some relief. I probably won't purchase again because I normally use oils or Shea butter for really dry skin. I would still recommend it though, because it's not messy like oils and the tube is more convenient than a bottle.

Worth the hype - 06-09-2018 by

I have dry skin, especially in the winter. I bought this after hearing all the rave reviews and it is definitely worth the hype. I use this on my hands, knees, elbows and anywhere else that is dry and it completely rehydrates my skin. This is a really lovely moisturiser and i cant recommend it enough.

New dry skin staple! - 06-09-2018 by

I tried this product after reading reviews about it and I'm glad I did! I was looking for an ultra hydrating cream to use whilst flying to the States & on holiday and this will work really well. I tend to have very dry nail cuticles and this product goes on like a silky balm - my skin just soaks it up. It also works great as a lip balm. This is my new year round, dry skin staple!

Lives up to its name - 05-09-2018 by

I received a sample of this and it is so hydrating! A thick moisturiser that can be used anywhere. I tried this on my hands and cracked heels and it worked perfectly, it is really like a drink of water for your skin. Maybe a little thick as a day face moisturiser but was lovely as a night cream. Definately recommend!

Definitely worth trying - 05-09-2018 by

This is not as moisturising as I thought it would be after reading heaps of awesome reviews, however it is nice, i get extremely dry/cracked finger tips and was really hoping this cream would be the one unfortunately it doesn't quite hit the mark, it's also extremely greasy when you apply, it takes a while to soak into skin

So good! - 05-09-2018 by

I have very dry skin, especially in winter and this has saved my body from completely drying out! After may celebrity reviews i bought it and am so glad i did. This all-purpose moisturiser does exactly what it says and i highly recommend!

Magic product - 03-09-2018 by

The skin around my eyes randomly breaks into a rash especially during winter. After a particularly bad episode I put skin food all over my face before bed (after reading a Victoria Beckham interview on Into the Gloss) and I in the morning it had almost healed. This has never happened to me before. If you suffer from winter sensitive skin it is definitely worth a try!

Meh - 30-08-2018 by

I received a large sample size of this in a beauty box, and when I opened the box this was all I could smell. I was going to leave this a 2 star review because I HATE strong-smelling lotions, particularly when they smell of citrus. However, it's not really fair to skew the ratings because of my personal dislike of the smell - so I will say that it is an effective product with a nice texture etc. But I had to give it away because I really couldn't stand being followed around by this fragrance all day.

Dry hands begone! - 29-08-2018 by

Winter has been harsh to me and my hands feel like dried out leather. I really loved the smell of this product and could tell right away that it was going to help protect my hands from further dehydration. The texture was a little sticky so I'd recommend putting this one on at night.

Best products - 27-08-2018 by

I love the cleansing milk it is great for taking off makeup and leaves your skin feeling fresh and hydrated.

Best products - 27-08-2018 by

I love this product I use it on my face everyday as I have very dry skin. I like the smell as well .

Everyone needs this cream in the life! - 27-08-2018 by

Seriously...this is one of those products once you purchase you are like why did no one tell me about this product sooner!!!.....Want to get rid of those scaly winter legs? Skin food is your man, one application and gone. Eyes red and dehydrated and looking old....pop this on overnight and you're good to go! Want to hide that psoriasis on your elbow last minute.....boom looks a million times better after one application! It's great for everything and it's reasonably priced! You need this in your collection asap!

Nourishing Plus - 27-08-2018 by

Beautiful Weleda product - this skin-quencher is dense yet non-greasy, absorbs nicely and smells like - a vitamin enriched tropical retreat?! Settled nicely into my skin, perfect for my dry wintery legs.

Fantastic - 24-08-2018 by

The best cream on the market. Two days of use and any dry patch is gone. Saves me from cracked elbows, cuticles, knuckles, heels... So, so good.

Wow Wow Wow! - 20-08-2018 by

If you're going on an international flight, you need this in your hand bag. It does everything to keep all areas of skin soft and hydrated without congestion. I love this product and would highly recommend.

Skin food for good reason - 17-08-2018 by

This cream is fairly thick but it sinks into your skin without much trouble just use a small amount to start. It really helps with nails and cuticles and is a great addition to you hand regime. Highly recommended

Very thick and oily - 16-08-2018 by

This product is way too thick and oily. Hard to spread onto the skin, would probably be good for small dry patches such as elbows and knees but not good for the legs or feet.

Sample - 15-08-2018 by

Received it as a sample in my parcel. TBH, the quantity was very little, so I could not judge on what it does on my skin in a span of a week maybe. It's texture is super thick, glides on skin a lil rough, but gets absorbed easily. Skin looks hydrated definitely after applying it, not sure in long run :)

Thicccckkk - 15-08-2018 by

Super hydrating! you can use this on almost anything. i use it on my face in winter as an overnight mask and as a hand cream! it also seems to work great on eczema

Didn’t love it - 14-08-2018 by

Tried sample size.
Had a waxy consistency, felt nourishing initially but didn’t seem to wake up with any more hydrated skin. Broke out afterwards too.

Multi-tasking miracle! - 14-08-2018 by

I use this for everything - on my face in winter once a week before i go to sleep, on my hands when they're feeling dry, on my eczema and on my body when im feeling a little dry!

Great Cream for Dry Patches - 13-08-2018 by

This is a great cream which can be used anywhere and clears up dry patches very nicely, great to use as a night sleeping cream mask to deeply moisturize the skin.

Nourishing and easy absorbed - 13-08-2018 by

Just what you need in winter, though I'm sure I will use it all year round now I have tried it. The texture is thick and absorbs quickly, leaving my dry skin hydrated. It also has a lovely scent.

THE SAMLE THAT SAVED MY SKIN - 13-08-2018 by

I've just jumped online to buy the full size version after receiving this sample last week with a previous order. The wind had attacked my poor face, leaving it flakey and tight so I used the sample and I was amazed at the results. I love the way this makes my skin glow after putting it on and how it really sinks in to hydrate. It's not often that I am completely sold on a sample but this time - ya got me Adore Beauty ;)

Will repurchase - 13-08-2018 by

oh my gosh this is so hydrating!! I love the texture of this so much. it's really thick and rich and it feels like it seals and locks in the moisture on your skin, it has a refreshing citrus scent which I like and it has made my hands baby soft overnight! great product to try if you suffer dry hands.

Fantastic for elbows, hands etc - 08-08-2018 by

I love this moisturiser for getting rid of dry patches on my hands, elbows and knees. It would be way to heavy for me to use it anywhere else but it’s a great targeted treatment when your usual hand cream or body cream isn’t enough. I’m going to buy a tube to pack in my hospital bag when I go in to have my second child. All the hand washing makes my skin so dry!

nourishing - 08-08-2018 by

This is quite a thick cream, you only need a small amount. It takes awhile to absorb but it does help my hands as I garden alot so I have rough skin. Not an everyday use cream for me.

Great product. - 08-08-2018 by

I received a sample of this with my last order from Adore Beauty and it is so good I am going to purchase a full size. So nourishing and soothing for my dry skin. Highly recommend this beautiful cream.

Fantastic - 08-08-2018 by

I have extremely bad skin, i suffer from seasonal eczema. It can pop up anywhere on my body. Currently it is on my eye lids, causing them to be itchy and really dry with alot of flakey skin.

This product was sent to me as a sample. I saw that it said for dry skin, and thought alright lets see if this will clear up my eczema. And within about two days I already started seeing results.

This is a massive win for me considering it has taken me years to find a product that actually works.

It also cleared up several other dry patches/eczema on my arms.

100% buying a larger bottle.

Hydrating! - 07-08-2018 by

I received a sample of this a few days ago and was impressed! I used it on my face and neck as a mask and at first I thought it was going to leave my skin oily just because of how thick it was but the next morning I woke up and my skin was feeling great, not oily at all. My skin felt really hydrated. Would definitely recommend this to anyone with dry skin!

Nice - 07-08-2018 by

Got this as a sample and from what I can tell so far it's a great moisturiser that feels great on the skin

great for hydration - 03-08-2018 by

The info said you could use it on your face, hands, elbow and feet. I would say maybe not face as it is quite thick and sits on your face. The cream would be perfect for the rough patches on your feet, or knees.

Rich Cream - 03-08-2018 by

I love this cream for certain uses. It is very thick and rich so I use it only on dry patches like around fingernails, backs of hands, across cheeks in the wind, feet, elbows etc A real classic to always have around.

Winter skin saviour - 01-08-2018 by

My skin is terribly dry every winter and this helps me a lot to get rid of dryness. It deeply hydrates and nourishes my skin especially my dry rough hands. I would definitely recommend this cream to friends who suffer from dry skin.

Not for me - 31-07-2018 by

I received a sample of this and was excited to try it as my skin is very dry! I put it on my hands, but I found the smell overwhelming and not very pleasant. I was impressed with the quality ingredients, and the smell is from these ingredients, but it's not a combo that I enjoy.
I also found that it left my hands really greasy and it didn't absorb quickly, so felt I couldn't do anything with my hands for a while. I much prefer hands creams that absorb quickly so I can get back to what I'm doing again.
I didn't find my skin to be better after using than other products I enjoy using such as the La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume Hands.

Glowy smooth skin - 27-07-2018 by

I had read a lot about this from reputable and reliable sources on the internet and decided to give it a go. Winter was the perfect time to try this product out. It is thick in consistency which I had been warned about but so easy to use, within one or two applications dry patches were gone. I’ve used it as a moisturiser, both body and face and loved how gentle it is. Love it as a lip balm and used a little under makeup for a dewy look which was gorgeous. It has a lovely fresh scent, not to strong. I’ve learnt to friends and family who have also loved it. Will be repurchasing!

Came as a sample - 27-07-2018 by

I got this as a sample with my Adore purchase, I am giving it 3 stars only because I couldn't really tell if it made a difference given the small amount that was sent to me. Perhaps if there was more product to do a better trial then perhaps I would have seen results.

Bought for husband- he loves it. - 20-07-2018 by

I buy this for my husband. He loves it as a face cream. He works outside in all kinds of weather and he thinks Weleda Skin Food is the bee's knees.

He has very sensitive and dry skin that suffers the rigours of daily shaving and exposure to the elements. He credits this cream with retaining his facial skin over winter and has commented that his skin doesn't ache or burn when transitioning from warm to cold, unlike a few previous creams he'd used. Skin Food seems to create a thick, greasy barrier on his face- he likes that.

He hasn't said anything about it helping him retain his boyish glow or anything like that, but he's happy with the efficacy of the cream and he loves the fact it's affordable, which warms the cockles of his frugal little heart.

Super thick and hydrating - 18-07-2018 by

I received a deluxe sample of this, and have been using it on my hands. I work in a dry office environment, so my skin has been super dry this winter. This feels very rich on the skin, and has a faint lemony smell. I'd definitely consider purchasing.

So hydrating! - 16-07-2018 by

Love everything about this product for my dry skin. Feels a bit sticky but I don't mind.. leaves my skin looking so dewy!

Nourishing and hydrating - 16-07-2018 by

I was lucky enough to win some Weleda products including this one. Weleda Skin Food comes in a 75ml metal tube with a twist off lid. The cream is light yellow and has a slight lemon fragrance which doesn't linger for long.

I mainly use this at night as it is slightly greasy when you first apply it. It's great for hands, elbows and heels but I also use it on my arms and legs. Love that it contains natural ingredients. Especially good in winter for dry skin. It has also helped with a small area of ezcema which I had on the palm of my hand.

I wish it was in different packaging as I find the metal packaging sometimes cracks and splits. Would recommend this product to anyone.

Hydrating - 16-07-2018 by

I received this product as a sample with purchase. I came out of the shower and I thought I’d try it before bed. Wow I loved that it was thick. It moisturised my face immediately and after awhile my skin was supple, fresh and hydrated. I have dry skin so I was amazed by this product. I will be purchasing the larger size.

Excellent product - 12-07-2018 by

The 10ml size was perfect for trying this product out and bringing it everywhere I go. It's an excellent moisturizing and nourishing little gem. I usually have awfully dry lips during the winter but after having used Skin Food only twice, my lips have become smooth and flake-free. It's also a great primer for lipstick. I noticed that my lipstick lasts longer when I use Skin Food underneath. I also use it on other areas I want to completely moisturize, like under my eyes and my elbow. I definitely recommend this product, and I'll buy a bigger size now that I know it works.

Effective - 10-07-2018 by

Received this as a sample. I used it on my face where I had broken out from another product and my skin was immediately soothed. I also used it on my cracked feet and it worked a treat with just one application. The only issue I have with it is the smell, some might like it but it was too strong and not for me.

Sticky! - 10-07-2018 by

I received this product as a sample with one of my adorebeauty.com.au orders. It smells lovely, and while I can see it might be beneficial for tough skin, I made the mistake of thinking it was just like a standard moisturiser. I put it on my legs after shaving, and the residue stuck around for hours. I kept trying to rub it in, and then couldn't get rid of the "stickiness" off my hands. I can see how it would be good for heels and elbows, and possibly dry and cracked hands, but it's not something I recommend for daily use, or for a standard moisturiser.

Great product for when flying! - 05-07-2018 by

I received this product as a sample and forgot I had it. When packing my toiletries bag to put in my carry on luggage in preparation for a long haul flight I grabbed it as I figured it wouldn’t take up much room and I could throw it away if I didn’t like it.
Well was I surprised.....this stuff is amazing!!! It kept my dry sensitive skin hydrated and protected against the awful drying environment that comes from flying.
This product is super thick and a tad greasy so I don’t use it for everyday use; I keep it for those occasions when an extra boost of moisture is needed.

Rich, Luxe Cream for Dry Skin - 04-07-2018 by

I use this product on my face as an over night deep moisture mask, and I wake up with plump and dewy skin. I find the natural fragrance to be quite strong but it is pleasant and can be soothing, especially at night when applying before bed. I read on another beauty website that this moisturiser is a dupe for La Mer cream, which makes it an excellent and super affordable substitute!

Best Winter hand cream! - 02-07-2018 by

Skin Food is such an amazing moisturiser for my dry skin. I use it on my hands and feet and a little goes a long way! I have it in a two different sizes so I can carry it in my handbag and have one on my nightstand. It is made with all natural ingredients which is great as I have sensitive skin. It is such a great product and I highly recommend it!

A winter essential - 27-06-2018 by

My hands have been horribly dry this winter and the usual hand creams have not been cutting it for me. Skin Food is thicker and stickier than most hand creams but works really well. I'm going to buy the 30ml size to put in my handbag and keep the larger size in my bedside table to use every night! It would be great as a foot cream also.

Everyone should have this in their kit - 27-06-2018 by

Whether you’re a fan of the glossy skin look, or suffer from winter dryness, there’s not much this amazing product can’t do. I’ve used it as an intensive facial moisturiser on long-haul flights, to soothe wrecked cuticles and lips, scaly elbows and cracked winter hands. It’s very thick so if you’re acneic I’d suggest a patch test first but I’m acenic and my skin tolerates it just fine. Gorgeous, invigorating citrus scent. I will always have this on me and stashed around my house. Even got my husband hooked.

good for dry patches in winter - 20-06-2018 by

I don't use this a a full face moisturiser but just for dry patches, cuticles and sometimes if my hands are feeling dry in the cold weather I will use a thick layer of this before going to bed so they're nice and soft in the morning.

Essential product - 23-05-2018 by

I love this so much! This product is an essential to have around. In autumn/winter I use it like a moisturiser about once a week, massaging in a thin layer at night. It makes my skin so so soft and nourished and it also helps balance my combination skin. I have sensitive skin and it's never made me breakout. It's also literally the perfect hand moisturiser. I also use it to moisturise my hands/cuticles/nails, I put it on just before bed and then it absorbs by morning. I don't use this every day, just when my hands are particularly dry. It's also good on any dry areas like elbows etc. I often work with clay and this product is literally a saviour for my hands!!

So rich and moisturising - but may break you out - 17-05-2018 by

I just LOVED applying this product - it is VERY thick and moisturising. If you don't like thick products that take a long time to sink in this is not for you. It has a slight citrus scent but is not bothersome. Every time I use this (every so often overnight) it leaves my skin feeling like baby-skin in the morning.

HOWEVER, I have sensitive skin with rosacea and although it doesn't cause irritation, I'm almost certain it causes me to have a breakout - it has happened each time i have used.

I do love it so much otherwise so if you are not acne prone this is definitely worth trying however is not for me.

As advertised - 15-05-2018 by

This moisturiser is advertised for very dry skin, and it really does an excellent job of keeping the skin hydrated and adds moisture. I have combo skin and every few days I like to treat it to a very thick product to help balance the oil. It has a strong citrus scent and is very thick. However, my generally sensitive skin has no issue with it. Best for those with very dry skin

So Nourishing!! - 08-05-2018 by

LOVE LOVE LOVE!

This is an amazing, rich cream. It is so moisturizing and glides on so easily and is absorbed into my skin, leaving it plump and dewy.

Probably not the best if you have oily skin.

I use this cream morning and night, under make up or alone.

LOVE THIS! - 30-04-2018 by

I get really dry skin... this saves my skin in one application. I am also sensitive skinned... and I've had no reaction at all. This is one of my absolute favourite moisturisers to use and I've tried hundreds... I chose this as a gift for my friends when they need something a little special and that will actually work - perfect for winter months.

So moisturising! - 18-04-2018 by

Skin food is amazing for dry skin. I had dry skin on my nose and put Skin Food on it before bed and in the morning woke up with no more flakey dry skin. Also, it works amazingly on dry heels and instantly softens them and gets rid of any dry rough spots.

Rich and nourishing - 11-04-2018 by

This is wonderful on my very dry skin. Due to excessive hand washing, my hands are very dry and crack around the cuticles. I love how they feel soft after using this. Very thick but love the feeling on it on

Helps soothe my severe eczema! - 27-03-2018 by

I have really bad eczema and am constantly trying different creams/ointments to help soothe my skin. I've only been using skin food for about 2 weeks but I've noticed some significant changes in my skin, namely reduced inflammation. When my skin starts to feel itchy I just pop some of this on and it soothes it instantly.

I've given it four stars instead of five only because it can sometimes take a long time to absorb into the skin. It leaves almost an oily residue which is fine as I mostly use it on my hands which absorbs faster but when I've used it on my face it has taken much longer.

I bought the smaller size just to try it out but I'm going a bigger size so I can take the smaller one with me on the go!

Overall it's a great all rounder that is natural and affordable!

Wonderful for dry, cracked skin - 19-03-2018 by

I have gotten my whole family onto using this product and it has worked wonders for every one of us. There is a reason this is a cult favourite and that's because it does what it says! Holy grail cream to deliver healing and hydration when needed.

Love! - 06-03-2018 by

Love this product - the smell, the thick consistency. I use it to soften my hands and feet. The only thing I don't like is that it can leave the skin feeling slightly sticky straight after application so you wouldn't want to touch too many things afterwards, but this is a very small negative compared to the benefits it provides in effectively moisturising the skin. One of my fav Weleda products.

great for hydration and dewy skin - 06-02-2018 by

Bought this on recommendation of a Makeup Artist who said it was her no. 1 item to have with her always, and it's now mine too !
It has so many different uses which I love! It's super nice as a hydrating sleeping mask, layering under sheet masks, and I imagine in Winter will be great for day time to keep skin fresh and dewy.

Night time lip treatment - 15-11-2017 by

Initially, I wasn't really impressed with this product as it seemed too thick for a facial cream, however I started to use it at night time for my lips. I get really bad cold sores and ulcers on my lips. This cream has helped reduce the healing time of these sores, and made my usually dry lips smooth and plump. I put it on every night before I go to bed, and first thing after a shower every morning. It absorbs quickly. I also use it for hand cream at times, and also as a highlighter over my make up if I want a dewy look.

Gorgeous cream - 13-11-2017 by

I love this cream. It’s very comforting and healing. I have pretty normal skin and use it as a night cream. My hubby uses it as a day cream, then adds sunscreen. I also use it as a mask. It smells divine and is so natural and good for you. 10/10

Great - 13-11-2017 by

What to expect: a strong citrus smell, but lovely. Thick cream which does take a while to sink in. Works wonders on very dry skin. We use this in our house for particularly dry skin, for hand and feet cream, for peeling, sunburnt skin. It is not something I would use on a daily basis as a regular moisturiser, its definitely for very dry skin and repairing damaged skin which it does extremely well.

Beautiful stuff - 25-10-2017 by

I have very dry feet and hands and get dermatitis and psoriasis. Literally nothing moisturises my hands and feet, unless I am continually reapplying... except this cream. It is really thick but sinks into your skin and actually moisturises it. One of the few creams that you can apply to your feet at night and end up with supermodel feet in the morning. Has a really lovely citrusy herbal sent that I really enjoy. Have stopped with all other hand creams, this is the one....

Beautifully nourishing - 27-09-2017 by

I have a bad habit of over washing my hands, which leaves my hands desperate for nourishment

This cream has a barrier after application, keeping my hands pleasantly nourished post frequent washing

Heals cracks, and peeling skin from harsh soaps effortlessly

Pleasant fragrance

Strong citrusy smell, definitely just a foot cream for me - 26-09-2017 by

I bought this as I've read so many good reviews about how amazing and iconic it is.

Honestly though, I feel it is a super thick cream with a cheap, overpowering citrus smell. DEFINITELY not for the face! I have normal to dehydrated skin and tried a little on my face out of curiosity but this was way too thick. Reminds me of a cheap foot cream?

There are so many other gorgeous moisturisers and serums which will do so much more for your face so I would only get this if you need something for your elbows, heels or partner's rough feet for example (even then I think there are better prods on adore beauty).

Sad it didn't work for me!

Faultless - 12-09-2017 by

Absolutely love this product. The smell is amazing and it is so thick and rich, a small amount goes a long way. Can't wait to try other Weleda products!

Love it! - 08-08-2017 by

Ever since I purchased this product, I haven't been able to leave my house without it! I get really dry hands, especially in winter time and I'm constantly washing my hands (Bit of a germaphobe). I've noticed such a big difference on my skin! After every application, it leaves my skin feeling soft, hydrated and plump - I've found my new favourite product and must have!

Soothing - 16-07-2017 by

Love this product. I use this every other night in between using a retinol product. It is soothing and extremely hydrating. I also use this under my eyes during the day to keep the lines at bay and hydrated and even under makeup! Ive spent a lot on skin care including high end products but this is my staple I will never go without. Absolutly love it and a tube lasts forever!!

Super hydration - 26-05-2016 by

I use this every night on my face as my night cream and I don't even have dry skin. Even though it is so SUPER thick you can't even rub it in (patting it on is the trick), I think it would be suitable for people with all skin types (maybe super oily skin would need to steer clear).
I can't go back to another night cream now because they all feel too thin to me, even Weleda's actual night creams. This one is just feels so nourishing and protecting. I haven't found anything like it.

Need intense hydration? - 27-07-2015 by

If you need something that functions like an occlusive (or barrier) type moisturiser that isn't full of petrochemicals, this is the one for you. Think Vaseline, if Vaseline were natural, had more nutrients and sunk in a bit!

I know some people like to use this on their face, but I've found it most helpful for dry patches on my skin rather than all over. It's good for when your skin feels compromised and you need to really protect it from the elements, but you still want something that will sink in a little bit. Yes - this stuff is pretty thick. If you're planning to use it as a facial moisturiser I'd recommend it for night time only unless your skin is really dry.

My partner works for a cold storage company so he can be in and out of extreme environments, and this has really helped to reduce the dehydrated, broken skin he often used to get.
