I am a big fan of Weleda products and wanted to try one of their cleansing lotions. This product from Weleda has almond extracts and it managed to impress me with its ingredient list. Here’s how it fared.
Price: $20 for 100 ml
Start your sensitive skin-care routine with a light cleanser, ultra skin-compatible and gently nourishing. Organic almond and mild plum kernel oil are closely related to the skin’s own sebum and hold nourishing powers. The gentle action of this light, creamy cleanser is kind to skin, restores lipid balance and maintains skin’s moisture. Suitable for vegans.
How to Use:
Use on a cotton pad morning and evening and remove with warm water or a damp cotton pad, for cleansing or removing make-up, or pat on by hand and rinse off for an exceptionally kind facial wash.
Water (Aqua), Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Alcohol, Prunus Domestica Seed Oil, Xanthan Gum, Lactic Acid. (Wasser, Mandelöl, Fettsäureglyzerid, Alkohol, Pflaumenkernöl, Xanthan, Milchsäure)
My Experience with Weleda Almond Soothing Cleansing Lotion:
The product comes in a cardboard packaging with all details written on it. The tube is made of aluminium and has a plastic screw top. Of course, the screw top and the tube are secure and work well. I have a very sensitive and dry skin. This product promises to clean the skin gently and provide hydration too. Read on to find out more about it.
The product itself is white in color and quite creamy consistency. It smells very pleasant – more like essential oils. I love the fragrance of this lotion. The lotion is quite liquid. Since the product comes in a metal tube, it gets warmed up during summers and becomes hard during winters. So, the consistency of the product depends on the temperature.
During summers, the product flows out a little uncontrollably. I am very careful while squeezing it out. So, I prefer to store it in the refrigerator. During winters, it hardens a little and so it’s easier to use. It is recommended to use the product with a cotton pad on dry skin but a lot of product is required in one go when used in this way.
I have used it on the wet face but then the product just fails to remove any makeup. I am totally disappointed with this cleansing lotion. Since the product is pretty expensive I had high expectations from it but it’s not even as good as a drugstore product. Also, the skin feels dried out after use, all thanks to the presence of alcohol.
I already have dry skin and it tends to get even drier. I have not faced any redness or breakout so far, but if I continue using this alone for makeup removal, I am sure it will clog my pores. Since it does not completely remove my makeup it might cause breakouts in future. Overall, it’s an overpriced product, which is not effective at all. I would recommend a drugstore product but not this one.
