A decent moisturiser is the cornerstone of a good skincare regime, and we’re always on the look out for products that get the seal of approval from celebrities with incredible, glowing complexions. So add this multi-purpose miracle moisturiser to your shopping list: Weleda Skin Food.
Ashley Graham sung the praises of the balm in a recent interview with Into The Gloss, saying of her skincare regime: ‘I wash my face every morning with the same cleanser as nighttime, and then moisturiser. If it’s winter I’m doing Skin Food.
‘That sh*t is like crack,’ the model, who is currently expecting her first child, added. ‘I tend to be drier, but I do have combination skin, and I’ve never broken out [from using it].’
Coming in at a bargainous £7.95 for a 30ml tube (or £12.95 for 75ml), Weleda Skin Food is one of the brand’s most iconic products, and has won multiple industry awards. A rich, heavy-duty moisturiser (practically a balm) for dry and rough skin, it can be used on your face, as well as elbows, hands and feet, to nourish and repair. It’s particularly good for anyone wanting to soothe rosacea or eczema, or if you’ve overdone it with the retinols and need an emergency fix for very sore, red skin.
Made with a winning mix of natural, calming ingredients – which despite its low price tag are all sustainably sourced – it combines extracts of viola tricolor (wild pansy), calendula (marigold), rosemary leaf and chamomile, in a rich base of beeswax and natural oils – including sunflower seed and sweet almond oil.
Numerous other celebrities have shared their praise for the product including Victoria Beckham, Adele, Rihanna, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (who posted a nearly empty tube on her Instagram stories last year) and Julia Roberts (who uses it as a hand cream after she does the dishes, because apparently A-Listers still have to do washing up).
While ‘clean’ beauty products are increasingly popular, natural beauty brand Weleda have been doing there thing, making 100 per cent organic products for over ninety-five years. They’ve produced a number of cult favourites in the process, including their Purifying Lotion, (£10.95) which is said to be brilliant at clearing blemish-prone skin, and their Wild Rose range that is specially formulated for women in their 30s and 40s.
