Wild Rose Facial Care Kit - Weleda


When I found out that Weleda would be sending me the Wild Rose Facial Care Kit for my very first product review I was excited and unsure all at the same time. Excited because it's the first product review I have ever done. Unsure because I am not a big fan of roses. I know, shocking! A woman who doesn't like roses. Well, not exactly. I do like roses. Fresh ones that is. I have never been a fan of lotions, soaps and perfumes that are rose scented. It reminds me of the overpowering cheap rose perfume that my great aunt wore (good thing she has no idea I have a blog, let alone what a blog is or the internet).

Finally yesterday I received my Wild Rose Facial Care Kit for review and couldn't wait to use it but again was nervous that it would smell of old lady. To my complete astonishment when I opened the cleansing lotion and took a whiff memories of rose shaped hand soaps that filled my aunt's bathroom didn't dance in my head. Surprisingly it smelled of sweet delicate rose petals. Without hesitation I cleansed, toned and applied the night cream. My problem with most toners is that they sting and than my ubber sensitive skin turns bright red. Weleda's facial toner feels like you are literally patting on dew from a rose petal. No sting, no nasty alcohol smell and no redness. The night cream is just as amazing. Rich (but not oily) and velvety just like a rose petal.

Morning time arrives (5:00 am this morning) and my face is feeling hydrated. I look in the mirror and my skin is looking pretty awesome (except for the big zit on my forehead. I hear Weleda's Calendula Diaper Care zaps zits). Usually my skin is super dry in the morning but this morning this doesn't seem to be the case. Could this be from using the products only once? So I cleanse, tone and this time use the moisture cream. It's much lighter than the night cream which is perfect for day use and it distributes nicely so you don't need a ton.



The Wild Rose Facial Care Kit from Weleda is fabulous! I'm a new-ish mom and am 28 years-old. Let's face it my skin doesn't look like it did two years ago pre-baby. As a nutritionist I know what foods nourish my body from the inside-out specifically those who promote healthy skin. Unfortunately nutrition alone is not enough to feed your skin. You need high quality natural skin care products to feed your skin from the outside-in. I have no doubt that my readers would benefit from the Wild Rose Facial Care line. Try it! You'll love it!

Eco-points for Weleda

  • The paper they print on is 100% post-consumer fsc-certified paper
  • Weleda ensure their ingredients are sustainably sourced, including growing many themselves in their biodynamic gardens.

The farmers receive better wages, have safe working conditions and are guaranteed a secure living. The cherry on top: the wild roses are grown organically!

I now follow, and I'm going to cheat a little. My favourite product is Weleda's teething formula, "Cham Rad 20X," which I tried in New Zealand last year. Works better than Tylenol, I'm sold! Unfortunately I don't think it's sold in North America...

Heather said...

What a beautiful blog. I love Weleda products too and am so happy to have found them. We are expecting our first child and would love to read reviews about Weleda baby products too. My favorite Weleda product is, surprise, the Wild Rose eye cream, but I'm also partial to the Almond Intensive Facial Cream and Almond Facial Oil. I suffered for weeks from pregnancy induced eczema and the almond line helped a lot.

Melissa Macchione said...

M.J-I'll definitely give you an extra entry for a facebook mention. What's your fb user name?

Melissa Macchione said...

Heather - The Almond Facial line sounds scrumptious!

I only use Weleda products for my babies..My first is 13 now, followed by an 11 year old, now we have a 7 month old and even after all these years nothing new has come on the market that I trust more on my babies skin. My favorite has got to be the Calendula Diaper care. In our eczema prone household it is a godsend!! I'd love to win the facial care kit since I don't usually get treats like that for myself and my skin can use a boost!
