I am a slacker when it comes to pampering myself since I have become a mother, but I need to step up my game. I have two unused holiday gift cards to two different spa/beauty shops and I am always the last to get my shower in or my food eaten. Well my most recent “escape” at home has been the new Weleda cleansing and pomegranate firming facial lines, and at the end of the day my skin feels a little less weathered and I feel a little more pampered (now to book an appointment to get my hair done and a long overdue massage!).
The gentle cleansing line had a refreshing, cool, clean feeling when I used both products and my skin seemed to feel a little perkier and happier (a lovely change from my usual routine) and the pomegranate line make me a little more confident as I approach the big 3-0 in a couple of years. After all, they always say the best way to slow down aging and wrinkles is the tackle it before any appear, right? I am also digging the blue glass bottles of the cleansing line, although I put it in my vanity drawer to prevent little hands or wagging tails from knocking them down.
The Pomegranate Firming Serum was easy to apply and the Firming Eye Cream has an anti-inflammatory ingredient as well, which is helpful when I wake up on mornings like today with slightly puffy eyes (can I just say it was a long night?). The Firming Facial Care is small enough to toss in your purse or take on the plane when you travel, but only a tiny amount of each is needed for each application, so don’t get fooled by how long they will last.
Weleda is excited to announce the launch of their NEW! Pomegranate Firming Facial Care line and the NEW! Gentle Cleansing Line, as well as the re-launch of their Wild Rose, Iris and Almond Facial Care.
