BEAUTY: Weleda Calendula Lotion – REVIEW

Last but by no means least here’s my Part1 review of the Weleda Calendula lotion from their baby range.

I was given the opportunity to become more familiar with the brand Weleda through my attendance at the #midsblogmeet.  

We were all given sample sized lotions in a goodie bag together with a Pomegranate Day Creams (not yet used, plan to soon).

 I used the Calendula lotion mostly on mini-me and what was left on myself! We used every little drop!

My mini me absolutely loves this body lotion her comment to me this week was “mommy I like this cream, it smells like brueberries, oranges and ‘ogurt” which translates to a win – As she happens to love eating blueberries, oranges and yogurts! 

The lotion is certified natural and contains no nasties – no synthetic preservatives, fragrance, colours and is free from raw materials derived from mineral oil.

The lotion contains extracts of the flower Calendula together with Chamomile, organic Sesame and Almond Oil. Calendula is known for providing healing and soothing properties which for mini me is great for her young skin and for me great too for my somewhat troublesome skin (I love the summer and sunshine, my skin doesn’t I’m prone to suffering with awful prickly heat).

Whilst I know I can purchase the lotion online, to be honest I was too eager to wait for delivery – so searched the Weleda website to see whether locally I could purchase the lotion – yes you guessed it trusty Boots came to the rescue.

So your aware not every Boots store sells the Weleda line, so to get hold of more of the product line it’s best to purchase from the website. 

I bought the Calendula lotion at a cost of £7.95 however at the moment they have a 2 for £12 offer on in Boots which encouraged me to try/buy the Calendula shampoo and body wash too!

After some of my day spent gardening yesterday, I couldnt wait to have a shower by the evening to unwind and also as an excuse to use the body wash, like the lotion it has a creamy consistency, and lathers up really nicely, with the same scent as the lotion.

The lotion feels medium weight in consistency – by this I mean it’s not too runny or watery.  It melts into the skin when applied, it leaves my skin feeling moistured and hydrated!  The after feel on hands is non sticky.

I know it’s early days I really do like these products purely because I know there natural, safe and unharmful for my mini-me’s skin as she has quite sensitive skin like me.  It will be interesting to see how continued use treats our skin, so I will be back with an updated review soon.

I’m also interested in trying a few other of the Weleda products …. I know which ones I have on my must purchase list! 

So just before I finish this post, I was presented with an excited opportunity which involves Weleda, I’m beyond super excited! Stay tuned to my twitter feed (@Naomi_sfb) on 25th June for details and a blog post shortly after will reveal all!
