Cruelty-Free Brand of the Month | Weleda

Wednesday, 25 November 2015


Hello everyone! I hope you're well?

It's time once again for Cruelty-Free Brand of the Month, and today I'm talking all things Weleda. I'll admit, before I started spending a lot (a lot) of time browsing websites like Naturisimo, I'd only really heard of Weleda in passing, and it was always the same product that was mentioned: Skin Food.

When I finally took the plunge and bought something from Weleda, though, it was the Gentle Cleansing Milk that caught my eye, simply because that's what I needed at the time. It was a purchase made out of necessity, rather than curiosity, and little did I know that I'd find a new favourite brand... 
Some Facts About Weleda

  • Weleda use natural ingredients where possible. None of their products contain any synthetic preservatives, fragrances, or chemicals. 
  • They don't test any of their ingredients on animals, and neither do their suppliers, plus many of their products are suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
  • They get their energy from a green energy supplier, which offers renewable energy supplies from water, wind, and sunlight.


What Have I Tried?

Gentle Cleansing Milk, £8.94 for 100ml (v)
Exactly what it says on the bottle, Gentle Cleansing Milk has a thin, runny formula and is always a comfort, no matter how sensitive my skin is feeling  it hasn't flared my acne up once. You don't need much to cover the face, and it works into skin like a dream. I like to use it in the morning, and as my second cleanse in the evening, and will definitely be buying another bottle when this one runs out. Speaking of, the blue glass bottle is gorgeous, although I would like a pump  it's quite easy to pour out too much product otherwise, and I hate to waste something so good!

Almond Sensitive Skin Hand Cream, £9.95 for 50ml (v)
I first mentioned the Almond Sensitive Skin Hand Cream in my Winter Essentials post, and praised its light and silky texture. I stand by those words  this is the most luxurious, least greasy hand cream I've ever tried. I currently only own a sample-size tube, but I'll definitely be buying the larger version soon; I need this marzipan goodness in my life forevermore.

A Wishlist

  • Skin Food, because why not see whether the hype is justified? I'm a sucker for a hydrating body cream and this promises to moisturise dry areas like elbows and knees.
  • Sea Buckthorn Body Oil (v). I've just started using oil on my face and I love it, so why not find a body oil too? This one is made especially for parched skin, so it'd be ideal for winter.
  • Refining Toner (v). I've got really into toners recently, and I like the sound of this one; it's fresh and mild, perfect for the morning.


Have you tried anything from Weleda? Any ideas about which brand I should investigate next? Let me know in the comments!
