Weleda Almond Sensitive Skin Body Lotion Review

Finding a good, natural and organic body moisturiser has been one of the trickier items for me to replace. Many still contain a few iffy ingredients that I'd prefer to avoid, and those that don't, are usually in a price bracket that I can't justify spending every month or so. 

I've been using the Weleda Almond Sensitive Skin Body Lotion, alongside the Weleda Skin Food (read my review here) for over a month now. 

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.

Alongside sourcing biodynamic, organic and wildcrafted ingredients, Weleda products are certified by NATRUE, which has the highest international criteria for natural and organic finished products, not just the ingredients, and sources only ethically, environmentally and socially responsible ingredients.

You can read more about Weleda, or read my previous reviews of the Weleda Skin Food and Weleda Almond Soothing Cleansing Lotion.

You can purchase Weleda online from Nourished Life (ships world wide), Beautiful Because or direct from Weleda.


Packaging and Formula

Like the entire Almond Sensitive Skin range, the Almond Body Lotion features a gorgeous pink label and almond flowers, which resemble cherry blossoms (if you know me, products have to look beautiful on the shelf, as well as performing well). The Weleda Almond Sensitive Skin Body Lotion is packaged in a recyclable plastic pump bottle. The dispenser is designed to be used upside-down, so there is no product wastage.

The Weleda Almond Sensitive Skin Body Lotion is a light, creamy lotion, that sinks into the skin quickly. The texture reminds me somewhat of sunscreen, although it has none of the greasiness and is extremely hydrating. One thing I usually struggle with when it comes to body moisturisers is that they appear to sink into my skin, but then within 10mins, I feel like I have to massage the product in again, as it feels like it is still sitting on top of my skin.

There is none of that with the Weleda Almond Sensitive Skin Body Lotion, and once I've massaged it into my skin, all I'm left with is beautifully soft, hydrated, soothed skin.

I've mentioned before that my skin is ultra(crazy)-sensitive to shaving. I also live in an area that is really windy in Winter, and my skin gets so dry, I feel like it takes all Spring, Summer and Autumn for it to recover. When my skin needs the extra TLC, I'll opt for the Skin Food, otherwise, Almond Body Lotion is hydrating enough to keep my skin happy and soothed. I've also been using this on my arms and hands when they're feeling dry.

The Almond Sensitive Skin Body Lotion is so effective that my skin remains hydrated all day, without having to reapply.


The Weleda Almond Sensitive Skin Body Lotion is very reasonably priced at around $26AUD for 200ml. A little of this also goes quite a long way, and as mentioned above, I've been using this daily for over a month. I still don't feel like I've made a dint in it!

Overall

Between this and the Weleda Skin Food, my skin has not felt dry, even once! Most of the irritation I usually experience has also gone. I'm so pleased to have found a product that not only performs beautifully, but is also very reasonably priced, and contains only the most natural ingredients. 
I'll certainly be repurchasing once this has been used up, and plan to try more of the Weleda range. 

If you haven't discovered Weleda yet, I highly recommend that you do. I think you'd be hard-pressed to find a more natural or effective brand. 

You can purchase Weleda online from Nourished Life (ships world wide), Beautiful Because or direct from Weleda.
