Weleda Pomegranate Firming Day Cream and Night Cream Review

September 23rd, 2014

I am someone who is quite experimenting when it comes to makeup products. But when it comes to skincare, I have my guard up. The product has to be from a reputable brand, has to have great reviews, the description has to fit all my requirements and the list goes on. That is the reason why I buy fewer skin care products, most of which burn some serious holes in my pocket.

When I was given the opportunity to trial Weleda skin care products – let me be honest – I was apprehensive to try anything out of my comfort zone. So before I tried it myself, I did my homework. I researched the brand and the products and only when I was convinced that it is okay for me to use – did I go ahead.

I had chosen the Pomegranate range, although it is for mature skin, because at the time it was winter in Australia and my skin tends to have dry patches every now and then. I prefer products made for mature skin purely because they are formulated to be more nourishing and hydrating than the other ones.

Before we move on to the review, I would like to apologise for the photos. I was so into using the creams that I forgot to take photos when the tubes were full. Now that I have almost used up the product, all I have is wonky looking pictures. But hey – isn’t that a testimonial of how much I like the product?! 😛 The nice looking pictures are from Weleda Website – thanks Weleda :)

Claims to be

  • Extra nourishing and protective day cream for mature skin, with pomegranate seed oil to improve the skin’s firmness and elasticity.
  • Pomegranate seed oil also contains plenty of antioxidants and protects the skin from free radicals.
  • Along with macadamia nut oil and argan oil, it improves the skin’s own protective barrier and wrinkles and fine lines become noticeably less visible.
  • The skin receives intensive hydration throughout the day and its natural cell renewal is stimulated, which makes the skin more even, smoother and clearer.

The Beauty Mantra opinion

Starting with the packaging, the 30 ml tubes are small and quite handy to carry around in a bag or travel pouch. The tubes also add that extra hygiene factor when compared to the creams that come in a tub. They have a botanical smell to them but nothing too overpowering.

Typical of creams made for mature skin – both the creams are very rich in texture. I observed the day cream to be slightly runny when compared to the night cream. However, when applied they do not leave a greasy film on the skin. The creams get absorbed in to the skins pretty quickly. As someone who uses makeup on top of the moisturisers, I found the creams acting as a good base for makeup. The skin is left thoroughly moisturised upon application and the dry patches do get softer.

Now coming to the real question you have in mind – Do they work? Let me start by saying that I am a 20 something woman (girl?! L), so I do not have a fair experience with wrinkles. But I have a dry combination skin that gives me nightmares during the colder months. The dry skin really acts up and get so bad that it somewhat resembles crocodile skin (almost!). And top that up with makeup and you would wish you dint know me if you were my friend. LOL – Just saying! (I am sure my friends love me nevertheless!!). I have used these creams, together, for more than a month, and my skin has never felt better during winters. There was definitely no flaking. I did have a dry patch every now and then but that was far, far better than what I have experienced in the past.

My only complaint is that the day cream does not come with SPF. So, I had to top it up with a sunscreen and considering sunscreens/sun blocks are pretty heavy in texture as well – I felt like I had a lot going on, on my skin. The night cream is my favourite – I would wake up with my skin feeling soft and supple.

To conclude, I would recommend these creams for anyone with dry skin or mature skin. If you have an oily skin – then you might be better off choosing the other ranges from their collection that are formulated for oily skin.

 

Would I repurchase the product?

Yes
