This all-round miracle moisturiser and catwalk stalwart is loaded with essential oils and biodynamically grown extracts of viola, camomile and calendula, and it remains a perennial favourite. I carry a tube in my handbag and smooth into my hands, nails and cuticles. It always makes me feel very pleased with myself because it is so brilliant and affordable.
Now, here is a tip: I smooth a generous amount into my legs for an instant, lustrous moisture fix. I’m convinced it males my whiter shade of pale limbs look more toned. When you first try this thick, aromatic moisturiser you will probably think it is heavy and unctuous. Please persevere. Nothing prepares you for its magic. Skin Food just disappears into parched, irritated, sore patches, and the end result is a supple, hydrated, youthful looking skin. Even better, it is highly concentrated, so a little goes a long way and offers brilliant value, with a large tube costing £8.50 or the new handbag size at £4.95.
Pomegranate Regenerating Hand Cream
In the meantime I love the taste and health-giving anti-oxidant rich properties of pomegranates and so I was very excited to try Weleda’s new Pomegranate Regenerating Hand cream. Hand creams can be very disappointing. I am always on the look out for a really luxuriant one that is properly hydrating and lovely to use. After all, hand creams should be a little sensory treat throughout the day.
Firstly, the smell is divine and uplifting; like wandering in a fragrant Mediterranean garden in high summer. The miracle ingredient is pomegranate seed oil, which is loaded with antioxidants and helps to boost cell renewal and restore elasticity.
I could admire the rejuvenating effect it has on my dry, often neglected writer’s hands all day!
Pomegranate Rejuvenating Hand Cream – £7.95
