With a range from facial, skincare, oral health, deodorants and body oils to men's skincare, natural
medicine, hair care and a mother and baby range. Weleda have had a long time to think of the needs
of everyone, and they really have done it all.

If you're looking to jump on that all natural, cruelty free, ethically sourced product band wagon of
products for you and your family, then you have come to the right place. Weleda is all that and more.

Click below to hear my thoughts about Weleda and some of my new and favourite products from them!

Weleda Skin Food ($22.95 / 75ml)
When it comes to all rounder multi-use products which pretty much do it all. They are hard to come
by especially the really good ones. I can safely and confidently say Skin Food is definitely on of those
absolute winners!

Skin Food is packed full of all natural goodness which is fabulous for especially dry and even
sensitive or ageing skin. It is high is it's moisturising qualities and quenches you skin's thirst like a
dream. Can be used all over the body to smooth rough dry skin. I have been using this on my hands
lately as they have become SO dry over winter and were beginning to split the skin between my
thumb and fore fingers. :(

This is great for both men and women too. My husband has his own tube of this in the bathroom
and using this as his facial moisturiser daily. He has super dry skin which even gets flaky, but when
he uses Skin Food, it keeps his skin looking soft and flake free all day!

Weleda Firming Day Cream ($41.95)
I love changing up my skincare routine as often as I can and lately I have been using this Firming
Day Cream (along with the matching Night Cream below) and what I treat it has been!

This day cream is made for Mature Skin... to be honest, being almost 35, I'm not sure if my skin
really falls into this category just yet, maybe it does, who knows? Regardless of the rules, I have
just been loving this product!

With it's blend of delicious pomegranate seed oil and a bunch of natural oils from argan kernels &
macadamia nuts which work together to activate your skin's regeneration, soothes and protects the
skin. Firms and reduces fine lines, improves skin elasticity and smells so good as well!

Suitable for all skin types!

Weleda Firming Night Cream ($41.95)
There's nothing like that freeing feeling after a long day of work, coming home to a piping long hot
shower, removing the day's makeup and applying a generous layer of nourishing, soothing and
calmly scented night cream to get you relaxed for the evening. It is seriously one of my favourite
things and by far my most favourite time of the day!

Again, this product contains oils from one of my fav fruits, the pomegranate as well as borage seeds,
and argan kernels. It also has golden millet which aids in the skin's regeneration, helping us age
gracefully and helping our skin turn over new young cells, keeping our skin strong and protected.

Over the past year to two years I have felt like my skin has lost some of that firmness and elasticity,
particularly on my cheeks and upper neck under my chin. So finding a firming skincare duo I can
use morning and night I feel like it just perfect for me right now!

Weleda Age Revitalising Hand Cream ($18.95)
Going back to the beginning of this blog article to where I mentioned using Skin Food as my hand
cream. I also keep this one in my handbag at all times and use it multiple times throughout the day
whilst I am either at work or out and about doing everyday mum things!

Designed for mature skin, again it can't hurt right? Sometimes I feel like in general if a product is
designed for more mature skin, then it will probably work harder at anti-ageing my skin before it
really begins to look tired and worn out.

With a blend of primrose oil from the beautiful evening primrose flower, the oil works to get rid of
those dry rough spots on your hands which I have been getting on the tips of my fingers lately! It
also has oils from macadamia nuts to protect the skin sealing in the moisture into the skin for softer,
hydrated hands. There is also something in there called Centella which stimulates the collagen in
your skin which to be honest, I had never even thought about collagen in my skin past my face
before. So there is something to think about!

Weleda Citrus Deodorant ($21.95) & Weleda Citrus Roll-On Deodorant ($16.95)
If ever there is a deodorant scent, the citrus from lemon makes the most sense to me. Not only does
lemon smell super zesty and refreshing and clean. It's also a natural antiseptic which neutralises body
odours naturally without blocking your pores. It also doesn't contain any nasty chemicals a lot of
deodorants have in them including aluminium salts!

I have used other natural deodorants before with not many being all that effective. I have found
Weleda's Citrus roll-on deodorant in particular to be really good at keeping me fresh throughout the
day.  The roll-on provides 24hr protection however I only use it for about 10-12 hours before
showering again, so I can't say if it does last that long, but it does seem to last me the day no worries.

Weleda's citrus deodorant in the larger glass spray bottle is my favourite in term on packaging. Even
though it is glass, so I wouldn't carry this around with my in my handbag, it is a really nice product to
have at home to use throughout the day. I also love to use this as an air freshener throughout my
house. Particularly in my laundry where I have the cat's kitty litter tray and the bathrooms. It just
gives the rooms a lovely fresh boost, it's great!!

Weleda Salt Toothpaste ($9.95)
Just the name of this product sounds so cool to me! A salt toothpaste? That certainly is unique!
When you think about it though it makes perfect sense. The tiny salt particles work to gently buff
away the build up of plaque and tartar on your teeth giving them a good clean. Kind of like an
exfoliation on the skin, this works the same way only on the teeth. I love this idea, I think it is

You can rest assured this product is completely safe and effective for daily use as it was made
together with actual dentists. It doesn't contain any harmful chemicals like bleach, detergents or
preservatives. (It has enough salt in it for preservation).  It also does not contain fluoride.

The formula of this toothpaste does look a little weird. Reminds me of blended up red grapes. But it
does actually have a minty taste and scent to it, so it still feels much the same as any other toothpaste
you would normally use. I am absolutely LOVING this!

Weleda Children's Tooth Gel ($7.95)
When it comes to my kids and I am sure most parents are the same, you want what is safest and best
for them no matter the cost. Regardless, this children's tooth gel is completely affordable anyway,
which just makes it all the more appealing!

The pale blue formula contains no nasties, colourants, mineral oils or flavour enhances. It is naturally
flavoured with minty spearmint and fennel. It has calendula flower extract for healthy gums and silica
keeps teeth clean. My kids didn't even noticed I'd changed their toothpaste for a few days and then
they decided it was alright and gave me the OK to brush their teeth with it! Cheeky little

Again as with all Weleda oral care products, this product has been developed with dentists to ensure
safety and effectiveness for the health and wellbeing of you and your family.

Weleda Kids 2-in-1 Shampoo & Body Wash
This product is so cute and one of the newest range of products by Weleda. (They really do think of
everything!).  Available in Lively Lime, Very Vanilla & Happy Orange. How cute is the packaging?!
My kids just love the little hippo on the front of the tube having his own little bath just like them!

As a mother, this 2-in-1 product is great because it makes bath time quicker and easier. The more kids
you have the longer bath time takes. So having a multi-use product is what I look for. The fact it is
also 100% certified natural and gentle on little bodies and doesn't sting the eyes is a great bonus!

You don't need a lot to wash little kids hair and as I wash their hair because it's a 2-in-1 product as the
formula drips down from their hair onto their skin they can wash themselves as I'm washing their hair
with the same product! Saves time and money because the suds from the hair also wash the body!

The lime scent is really refreshing and a creamy white colour. My kids really enjoy using this, next I
would love to try the Very Vanilla (Even for myself!) as that is such a calming scent and one of my
absolute favourites! Vegan and cruelty free, that is what I like to see!

Weleda Baby Calendula Face Cream ($14.36)
Yes, I know this is a product designed for baby's skin, however I have to admit I couldn't resist
giving this a try for myself as well! What drove me to want to try this the most was actually the
creamy soft scent of the Calendula. It is slightly vanillary and lightly floral which as I mentioned
above is my weakness when it comes to scents. It smells absolutely gorgeous!

I don't think I have ever seen or heard of a facial care product especially just for babies. But when
you think about it, it is pretty clever. Babies have beautiful new born skin, yes. But it is also brand
new to our world. It isn't yet used to the polluted air, wind, air conditioning, etc. Babies skin can be
easily irritated and needs protecting as it adjusts and grows.

This facial cream is ultra soothing and great if you notice dry patches on your babies skin. I have
been using it on my and my 6yr old daughters face and it is so nice to bond together as girls
putting on our day creams together.

If you're keen to try some Weleda for yourself you can buy directly from their website online.
You can also find them online on a wide variety of websites. See them here!

Healthy Mix Foundation & Concealer
(New Formula!) 


I have recently been trying out this foundation and concealer in the Bourjois new and improved "Healthy Mix" anti-fatigue formulation for everyday use for a few months now. I have never used a Bourjois foundation or concealer before however I have heard a lot of hype and positive reviews on the original formula of this foundation over the years so I was very keen to
get starting using this!
I have the foundation shade in number #52-Vanilla which is a pretty good match for my skin tone. I feel like I could maybe go one or even just half a shade darker though because this foundation is quite light on the coverage and this shade is quite light in shade as well. I tend to mix it with one of my other darker foundations in the meantime and it seems to be working well enough. :)
The pump style bottle is one of my favs in terms of foundation bottle designs. It is the easiest and quickest way to use foundation and minimises the mess and excess product wastage as well. The finish has a nice dewy glow without being too shiny and lasts throughout the day really well even though the coverage is on the lighter side.
I am sometimes off at work for up to ten hours a day at the moment and this still looks alright when I get home at night!
If your skin usually gets a bit oily though out the day then I would suggest you might need touching up with some power or blotting papers throughout the day, otherwise you should be alright.
When a foundation does more than just cover my face like this one going the extra mile with it's "mix" of vitamins including C, E and B5 than that's a great bonus and makes me feel good wearing it!
If you're after a light weight everyday foundation in both feeling and coverage that looks youthful, glowy and natural than this one might be for you. In my opinion I think this would make a great first foundation for young girls or for those who like to keep it natural, light and simple for day to day use.

This concealer is also quite light coverage in terms of hiding blemishes and pores. It does highlight well especially under the eyes though and makes a good contouring highlight without the shiny sparkle of some illuminators which when you're going for a fuss free everyday work look you don't really want.
I have this in the shade number #51-Clair Light. This matches well with the foundation above, again perfect for those with very light skin tones. If I purchased this in the future I would go one darker with the foundation, but stay with this concealer shade. 
The packaging is simple, clean and easy to use. The formula isn't too thick or runny, but just the right consistency to apply and blend with the doe foot applicator.
Overall I would say this is a good budget friendly, day to day concealer which would be ideal for those with good skin without many flaws as it is too light to cover big blemishes, pores or dark circles. A fair price though and a product which I am happy to continue to use on a day to day basis for work, running errands on the weekends and spending time with the kids.
Together this due is nice and simple. It doesn't appear cakey or heavy and lasts throughout my long days as a working mum.
