Weleda has managed to turn the most potent ingredients cultivated by nature into a best-selling hit for natural grocers like Whole Foods. By now I already know that anything I try from Weleda I’ll really like, which is made easier by their often single-digit ingredient lineup. You know exactly what you’re getting right off the bat.
Almond Face Oil has exactly 3 ingredients; Sweet Almond Oil, Plum Seed Oil, and Blackthorn Flower Extract that make an oil that’s lighter than most and absorbs lightning fast. I understand that when they named it a ‘Facial Oil’ they were just trying to convey that it’s multi-purpose, but in doing so I think its actual value might be minimized.
Although I mostly use it for an eye makeup remover, or as an all-over facial pre-cleanse to break down makeup, it’s also a dry skin savior this time of year. Just a few drops under your moisturizer day and/or night will give your moisture barrier a boost to get rid of that annoying tight feeling our faces dread in the winter.
For sensitive skin, it’s incredibly soothing when your face becomes red and irritated from the cold. You’ll see an immediate calming of the redness with zero irritation since it’s fragrance free and high in natural antioxidants.
Or, skip your face altogether and add a shot of it to your lotion to really tame dry hands and cuticles- I can use it while I’m typing without making a greasy mess out of my keyboard.
