Welda Skin Food*

(75ml)

"If there’s just one thing you need to take with you to a desert island, it’s this little green magic tube. Skin Food is a universal saviour of dry, rough skin on faces, elbows, hands and feet – wherever you take a lot out of your skin, let Skin Food put it back in. With extracts of gentle viola tricolor, calendula and chamomile, in a rich, thick base of oils and beeswax, Skin Food loves your skin back to its best."





The first thing I noticed about this product was the medical-type packaging. It can be likened to a prescription cream in a metal tube bottle. So instantly, I am not expecting a sweet smelling cream, however something more heavy duty and thorough.
The cream doesn't smell bad at all. It is certainly not flowery or perfumed like a Soap and Glory “hand food”, for example, which will really appeal to some people. I feel like I have more faith in the Skin Food’s properties and outcomes when it is so reminiscent of a medical cream. I think this medical element is echoed in the Welda logo.
THICK!! The cream is extremely thick, which I guess is the beeswax ingredient. And although the website states the base contains oils, I don't think the cream feels oily at all.Skin Food is great as a heavy duty cream for my elbows, knees, feet and hands. I will definitely use this on my hands and heels most often.
I also received a smaller 30ml version which is GREAT for my handbag! I get really dry hands when I am out and about. Caused by public loo soap and cold weather etc. This travel sized cream works so much better than any of the other brands I have tried that just dry out your hands after a while, making you apply more cream and in turn purchase more! It is also good to know that I have a body cream too, in case I need to top up on my elbows or corners of my mouth (where I get dry skin). 

Summary
·        Medical-look
·        Thick/heavy duty
·        Rough skin (Elbows, heels and hands)
·        Great travel sized version!


Since I started using this product, I found out that Victoria Beckham swears by it! If that's not a good enough reason to try it, I don't know what is!
