I couldn’t believe I hadn’t been familiar with the Weleda brand until I went to the Bloggers United Australia event way back last October and was kindly gifted their sea buckthorn creamy body wash and their Skin Food rich moisturiser (which I will never not have a tube of by the way, go check it out). Maybe it has been in my peripheral vision while in David Jones while I was looking for something else or maybe the packaging didn’t really do it for me as it’s all very colourful yet simple, whereas I am usually drawn to more sophisticated packaging? Who knows! All I know now is that I see that packaging in a totally different light nowadays and Weleda is now part of my life.
A bit of Weleda background (as sourced from their website)
“Weleda was founded by humanitarian and philosopher Rudolf Steiner in the 1920s. He also developed the principles of biodynamic farming and anthroposophical medicine, and today many of these principles are still used to create Weleda products.
Weleda strives to source only the finest ingredients from biodynamic, organic and wild crafted suppliers. We don’t just buy organic ingredients on the open market, we work in partnership with growers to ensure we know where the ingredients are grown, what the soil is like, and how and when the plants are harvested, distilled or processed. It’s our attention to detail that ensures maximum vitality and potency of the ingredients in our products.
It’s for these reasons that Weleda is certified by NATRUE, which has the highest international criteria for natural and organic finished products, not just the ingredients.
Our focus is not only on creating exquisite natural and organic products, but to do so in a way that is ethically, socially and environmentally responsible. For these reasons, the (UEBT) accredited Weleda as a member. Not only do they demand fair trade, but they work to ensure everyone and everything along the entire growing, harvesting and manufacturing process is treated fairly, with care and respect.”
For a long time I had been a bit slack with my body care i.e. moisturising from head to toe every day simply because I was feeling a bit more conscious about what chemicals I was putting on my body every single day. After all the skin is our largest organ, and does absorb a percentage of whatever we apply to ourselves. Now don’t get me wrong, I still use other gorgeous body lotions and washes that aren’t organic, because there are too many that I love, but as for something I want to use the majority of the time that still feels and smells luxurious and keeps chemical exposure to a minimum, Weleda has been the one for me.
Weleda kindly approached me to see if I would like to try a couple of body care products from their Pomegranate range, and after loving the things I had tried so much before, I jumped at the chance.
They sent me the pomegranate creamy body wash, and their pomegranate regenerating body lotion.
“The Pomegranate line from Weleda is formulated with anti-oxidants aimed at addressing the needs of more mature skin. Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Body Lotion is formulated to moisturize your skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.”
The Body wash ($17.95 AUD for 200ml)
As it states, it’s such a creamy luxurious formula that lathers up beautifully. The scent is so beautiful, similarly to the sea buckthorn where as it has a rich, sweet but spicy christmassy vibe to it if you get me? Although the main ingredient is pomegranate, it’s also made up of vanilla, sandalwood and blood orange which is what probably reminds me of Christmas! I am obsessed with the scent and want to lather up with it every single day! To sum this up it’s a luxurious creamy body wash that brings out many a warm nostalgic feeling while using, and leaves me feeling soft and guilt free knowing I have only nurtured my body and not harmed in any way from any synthetics.
The Regenerating Body Lotion ($25.96 AUD for 200ml)
I was so excited to receive this because I feel at my current age of 28, I need to start using body lotions that works at regenerating and slowing down the ageing process. This really gave me a healthy glow and almost blurred my skin to just look and feel younger. I have definitely seen a change in my skin since using this, I used it daily leading up to my wedding and couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful solution.
A silky body cream that goes a long way, smells just as beautiful as the body wash and soaks in to leave my skin look glowing and feeling soft and hydrated, not sticky. I will 100% continue to purchase this for every day use, my skin will definitely thank me for it!
I hope you all enjoyed reading about these gorgeous, high-end, but organic and fairly affordable products! (I wish I had more close up snaps but lost my pics and haven’t repurchased yet)
