I was sent a lovely package from Weleda recently to try out their Evening Primrose line, which is said to be wonderful and firming for mature skin.
Yes, I’m at the “mature skin” age sadly – I’m trying NOT to focus on that part. It happens to the best of us.
I’ve never tried Weleda products before so I was really looking forward to seeing how they compare to what I’ve used in the past. I had a chance to look at their site to get to know the brand and I was extremely impressed by their dedication to this certified natural skin care line. They have a wonderful philosophy and their mission “isn’t just to recognize beauty. Our mission is to actively cultivate beauty.” I LOVE THAT.
Their products, made in Switzerland and Germany, are all natural. They include no synthetic preservatives, no synthetic fragrances, no synthetic chemicals, and no animal testing (including their suppliers). They are paraben free, sls (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) free, phthalate free and include certified organic, natural and wild crafted ingredients.
Weleda has also earned certification from NATRUE. NATRUE is an international not-for-profit organization which sets very strict standards for global certification of natural and organic cosmetic products. This is further guarantee that as a consumer you can absolutely trust Weleda’s products at true natural products.
I was sent several products including:
- Evening Primrose Revitalizing Body Wash
- Evening Primrose Age Revitalizing Body Oil
- Evening Primrose Age Revitalizing Body Lotion
- Evening Primrose Age Revitalizing Day Cream
- Evening Primrose Age Revitalizing Night Cream
- Evening Primrose Age Revitalizing Hand Cream
- Evening Primrose Age Revitalizing Eye & Lip Cream
The first thing I noticed with all the products is that they smell incredible – not overpowering or fake. Just a light, amazing natural scent that won’t overpower you or take away from the product itself, but lingers for a while. The Evening Primrose line products are also very light and non-greasy, and absorb into your skin immediately after you apply them rather than just sitting on the surface. I didn’t really need to use a lot of the product per use, so I think the face creams should last about a month or so.
I really like these products and I’m going to keep using them, because they might be the best smelling beauty product I’ve ever used, and I really really like that they’re an organic, natural product, which I’ve never used on my skin before. If you’re looking for this type product, you should give the Weleda brand a definite go.
Their products are available on their website and in many stores in Canada and the U.S. In Canada specifically, you can also find them online at well.ca. For more info, find Weleda on Facebook and Twitter.
