Weleda Wild Rose Night Cream

June 15, 2008

An ultra nourishing cream made from the pure oil of rose musk, peach kernel oil and almond oil.

I found this product great to use for dry skin as it is very thick and creamy. Most of the time it worked brilliantly but there were a couple of occasions where my skin felt a little oily in the morning. Although it’s a night cream, I found it very good to wear on days when it was very cold or windy outside.

This scent is quite delicate, but still strong enough to smell for a while after I had applied it. It smelt quite different to what I was expecting and this is because although it is a rose cream, it has a larger percentage of rose oil rather than rose fragrance (essential oil). Other essential oils in the cream include: Bergamot, Clove, Geranium, Grapefruit, Guaiac wood, Jasmin, Lavender, Neroli, Petitgrain, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Ylang Ylang.

The making of Weleda Rose Moisture Cream:

All of the ingredients used to make this product are responsibly harvested from controlled gathering and from biocertified plants growing wild. The rose petals are grown in the Turkish lake country by farmers involved in the Weleda cultivation project.
