How to use: Apply generously several times a day, wherever your skin needs extra help – especially on rough, dry areas like hands, feet and elbows.
I got a sample of this skin good on a midwifery training day and now I am fully converted. I have been using it every evening and have noticed a big change in my skin, it feels so much smoother and I love that all the products are naturally sourced! The lavender oil is also great for me and my baby in the bath! Highly recommend and will be purchasing more
Skin food is such a lifesaver for my super dry skin in Winter. It's quickly absorbed but sooo nourishing and leaves me with a glow!
Gift from the gods
I came across this ‘miracle’ in a tube several years ago by accident and since then it is in every handbag, travel bag, and bathroom cabinet. It has transformed my dull dry face, my awful scaly feet, and calmed prickly heat and mild sunburn. It’s the only cream that softens my overworked hands, plus the divine smell lifts my mood immeasurably. A small tube, with many powers.
#weledafavourite I use this and the skin food light. Simply marvellous products.
I predominantly use Skin Food Light however when my skin needs a little extra boost I use this little beauty before bed as it’s thicker and more intense. The smell is divine and I highly recommend all Skin Food products
The best richest cream for dry skin.
Use every day, helps nails to stay hydrated. Also stimulates nail growth, love the smell of the oils. Very rich, would not use anything else & recommended to all my friends.
So nourishing and my dry skin is no more! It is a staple in my skin care routine and my clients love it too!
Received a sample of the cream and at first was a bit sceptical.
I was extremely surprised to see a great results.
I used it as a night cream, my skin was smooth and felt well nourished in the morning.
The smell is nice though for some might be too strong.
I highly recommend the cream.
Well done Weleda and thank you!
I use this mainly on my hands and it's the most gorgeous cream, it smells wonderful and lasts for a really long time. Highly recommended! #weledafavourite
You simply can't go wrong. 😊
I love this product
This cream is so rich and delightfully nourishing, I have been using it for years and cannot be without it!
I suffer from very bad psoriasis on my both my knees and elbows and this has cleared it up beautifully (even better than the plethora of medicated creams and ointments I have had on prescription).
It is also fantastic as a daily moisturiser when you are feeling dry and dull.
Although the tubes aren't the largest and cost a fair bit, you only need the tiniest bit to go a long way. I will definitely be continuing to purchase this item
I never ever write reviews, but I have to for this product. For months I’ve had dry scaly skin round my nose, cheeks and forehead. I tried so many different things and nothing would make any difference whatsoever. Happened across weleda skin food in Morrisons on Tuesday and honestly in only 2 days my skin is back to normal. I’m amazed and so happy. Will definitely be buying this for ever more, it’s worth every penny
I suffer from extremely dry hands in the winter and they get deep cracks and become very sore and painful.
I have tried many things without success. I used Skin Food (original)this winter, and I am delighted to say I have had no problems at all with my hands. Not a single crack and no dryness. It feels lovely!
It's just marvelous. Natural beauty is the way forward 💚
Hands down this is the best moisturiser I've ever tried. I use it every night before bed on my face & neck. I have suffered with perioral dermatitis for years and using this product has helped clear it up. My skin is very sensitive and gets irritated by lots of ingredients not at all with Skin Food. The texture is so rich and thick in texture so you don't need much, as such it is really good value. I've used moisturiser 5 times the price and not found then as good as Skin Food. I use it on my daughters eczema also and it heals any irritation really well.
I really can’t thank you guys enough, I have suffered for over 10 years with eczema on my face, in and out of doctors with no luck with bay product what so ever. This completely soothes and has cleared my face. Absolutely life changing and that is no exaggeration!
Brilliant after Shaving
I love to use this after a shave when i rub a very small amount between my fingers then gently pat on my face and it keeps my skin soft all day long. My only gripe is the new plastic packaging which i really don’t like as the old metal tubes were so much better .
Absolutely amazing! Saved my skin and I suffer from Chronic eczema! Been in and out of hospitals and this works and clears my skin on a daily! Thank you so so so so much for helping people work skin conditions.
I have very dry skin especially on my hands, and this skin food really helps to moisturise them. Because it is quite a thick cream I use it at night. It soaks in really quickly and smells nice. One of my favourie hand creams. So glad I tried it. Will be ordering again shortly.
My go to product
I have been in love with Skin Food since I discovered just over a year ago. I have very dry skin and this is the only product that makes my skin feel and look amazing. It’s so versatile, I use it in all my skincare routines day and night. It mixes very well with serums, sometimes I leave it in as night face mask when my skin needs extra hydration. It has definitely improved my skin texture and dullness, my skin looks plumped, it’s super soft and it just glows! I get so many compliments. It works great with make up and without, it just gives you a natural glow. Plus you can use it on your hands and feet and anywhere that needs a little love.
Wish it were more affordable
I tried a sample of this product and absolutely loved it. My skin looked so good. However, I realised it's not vegan and find the vegan weleda alternatives too expensive. Wish there was an affordable vegan alternative!
Great product, shame about the change in packaging
I've been using skin food for years and love the product, but I am sorely disappointed in the change to packaging. Like many, I am trying to avoid using plastic and the switch is really disappointing. Additionally, the metal tube meant you could squeeze every last drop out. Now, you have to cut the tube in half or throw some of it away, then having to buy it more frequently (which I'm sure wasn't part of the thinking behind the switch at all...).
Sad about the new plastic packaging.
I LOVE this cream, it smells delicious, and is rich and luxurious. But why have Weleda changed the packaging to a plastic tube? The metal one was great. Even though this is my fave moisturising cream ever, I don't know if I will continue buying it because of the packaging.
Shame you raised the price
great product, it started getting very popular and reviewed by ¨mainstream¨ sources then the package size decreased and the price increased which I find greedy. Surely if you're selling more the price could stay or even drop. I won't buy it as I used to, only occasionally.
This is excellent for very dry hands. However, I am very disappointed to see that the packaging has changed to plastic bottles. They used to be in a metal one which you could roll and squeeze as much cream out as possible. The new plastic bottle does not squeeze well and I had to cut in half to get the remaining cream out. In our plastic conscious age this was not in my opinion a smart move.
I have been working in a cafe and doing alot of hand washing which has completely dried out and destroyed my hands. I've started using skin food and I cannot believe the difference it's made to my hands. They are smooth and soft and I am definitely going to buy my next tube to stock up. So impressed with this product
Perfect Face Cream
I have been looking for a perfect face cream for a while, changing natural brands for over 5 months. I was advised to buy this product at a local natural store and the results have been impeccable: clear and hydrated skin! I truly love it! My skin routine is pretty minimal: clean, tone, and hydrate, and since I have been using this cream its never looked better! It does have a pretty thick consistency, but it absorbs perfectly into the skin and it's also great for your hands.
Have recently used this on aging, damaged skin on my hands and arms -from gardening and am delighted with it. Easily the best condition my hands have been in for a while! I put it on at night and wake with soft hands.
