The Weleda Skin Food is a cult product due to it’s many uses; it’s a lot like a more natural version of the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream and it has the same thick, rich, balmy texture, meaning it works on dry patches, cuticles, keeping flyaways and brows in place and it’s also handy for blocking hair dye and fake tan. However, a recent new kit creation – the Weleda Skin Food Saviour Kit – has given it a further use, an intensely hydrating mask.
The kit is literally just a tube of Skin Food and a lovely cotton flannel, and the recommended usage involves applying a medium layer (nothing too thick), chilling in a bath for 10 minutes if you’re lucky enough to have a bath in your home then removing with the cotton flannel soaked in warm water. This is *the* mask for you if you struggle with dehydration and skin tightness as it will sooth and hydrate, but it is a very unctuous formula so if you’re spot-prone, tread carefully and don’t leave this on for hours the first time. I actually had it on for about half an hour and it certainly didn’t give me any spot problems, but I still think acne-heavy skin types should tread carefully. It’s a bargain at £9.95 here – link – as let’s not forget the many uses of Weleda Skin Food.
