I absolutely adore Weleda. It is pure and natural skin care that is made ethically and sustainably and more than that, their products are really very good. This is a product I used to use, but had forgotten just how lovely it is.
Sweet almond oil has long been revered as one of the most valuable and skin-healthy oils on the planet. Pressed from the nut kernels of the Sweet Almond tree, this unadulterated plant oil is rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidant rich vitamin E which easily penetrates deeply into the skin to protect the skin from dryness and improve the skin’s barrier function.
Weleda Almond Soothing Facial Oil is ideal for allergy-prone, sensitive, inflamed and dry skin and it can be used in a multitude of ways, making it a clear beauty must-have at the great price of just $26.50. I particularly like to use it as an eye makeup and long lasting lipstick remover – it swipes makeup clean away, while nourishing the skin. Many makeup removers contain drying ingredients such as alcohol, so this is great for sensitive areas such as the eyes.
In addition, the Weleda blend is fragrance free and includes Blackthorn Blossom to alleviate skin irritations and reduce sensitivity.
The key ways to use it include:
• For daily use as an alternative to face cream in cold weather, as an intensive skin treatment or, as an eye make-up remover.
• To hydrate, soothe and balance the skin when it is irritated.
• To condition the skin for smooth makeup application.
Simply shake a few drops into your palms and apply to damp facial skin. To use as an eye makeup remover apply a few drops to a moistened cotton pad.
