Winter Hand Repair with Weleda Skin Food

My hands have gotten so dry this past month with the colder winter weather. Since I had temporarily misplaced my tube of hand cream from the Body Shop but had a free sample tube of Weleda Skin Food (that I received with my last order from I decided to try it out.

Here’s what it says on the website:

Weleda Skin Food is a unique, ultra-rich whole-body cream that deeply hydrates, restores and protects skin with nourishing plant oils and extracts.

The essential fatty acids and vitamin E in organic sunflower seed oil take care of stubborn dryness on your elbows, hands and feet as organic pansy calms dry irritation. Soothing rosemary leaf extract’s mild antiseptic properties and the anti-inflammatory properties of Biodynamic® and organic calendula flower extract gently nourish and care for dry skin.

Deeply moisturized and protected, your skin looks soft and supple with a healthy glow. It’s your recommended daily allowance of radiance, and it’s just what you and your skin are craving.

My experience: This thick, pale yellow cream has a definite herbal scent which I really like, but if you don’t enjoy herbal scents, then this one is definitely not for you. It is super moisturizing and my poor dry hands are nearly recovered after just a few days use! I don’t think that I would want to use this cream as a full body moisturizer, it is just too insanely thick and rich, but for dry hands, feet and elbows, this stuff is incredible. For a sample tube, it is quite generous in size at 1oz /$12.50 (USD) – the full size tube is 2.5oz / $19 (USD).

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤

  1. I’ve never tried Weleda products but I’m always curious. I do worry that their items might be too greasy for my liking – this could be a good night time hand cream when I don’t care about having grease ball hands! is awesome – they sell everything on there! I bought a few bits from there recently too! 🙂

  2. I dig Skin Food although the scent is a little bit of an acquired taste I think. I definitely didn’t love it at first but now I really enjoy it.
    Do you use this during the day? I generally only use it at night because it is a little on the greasy side.

  3. I love this stuff, although I can’t imagine using it all over my hands and feet. The richness and stickiness would drive me nuts that’s why I only use it on small dry patches 🙂
