I actually use this on my lips and it works better than any other lip balm ive used.

Very thick but great for dry spots
This smells great and is super hydrating especially for really dry areas of your face and body, like elbows. I find it way too thick and sticky to use regularly, especially on my face. Great when you really need some extra help.
EnjoyI actually use this on my lips and it works better than any other lip balm ive used.
Lovely productThis is really great on my skin and helps my dry skin a lot
Very thick but great for dry spotsThis smells great and is super hydrating especially for really dry areas of your face and body, like elbows. I find it way too thick and sticky to use regularly, especially on my face. Great when you really need some extra help.
AmazingThis is amazing! It is a thick heavy moisturiser so I use it at night time and I wake up with the softest skin. I bought the small size to try it out and will definitely be getting the larger one!
stickyI find it's way too thick and sticky to use over my entire face (I can't even rub it in, it tugs so much), but it's good for dry patches and thicker skin like on elbows and knees as it's so deeply nourishing and balmy
Very thick and stickyThe consistency of this was very strange, thick and sticky. There's no way i could use this on my oily skin. However i ended up using it on super dry areas like my knees, and made them super soft and moisturized. It has a almost herby rosemary citrus scent, which i liked but my son didn't like at all lol.
Smells amazingThis cream smells amazing! It has a strong floral/earthy smell. I originally bought it to use on the face but I found the smell a bit too strong for that, but it works really well for locking in moisture on the hands and body. It has a tick consistency, you need to warm it up in your hands to spread it but it is great as an occlusive layer.
Love itI bought the smaller version to try on a recommendation from a friend and love it! The cream is very thick and heavy duty so a little bit goes on a long way, but works amazing on those stubborn dry patches during winter + I love the smell
AmazingPerfect moisturiser for the face. I also use it as a hand cream on some nights.
Not sureI got this as a sample and I have to say - I don't really like the texture of this hand cream, it's so thick and creamy and greasy at the same time. I like my hand cream light and fast absorbing and unfortunately this does not tick all the boxes for me.
Great for dry patchesI use this for when my skin is particularly flaky - it was a godsend when I first started a retinol and had dry patches around my mouth. Too heavy for me to use as an all-over moisturiser though
So nourishing!I had read lots of positive reviews about this moisturiser and it has lived up to its hype. My skin feels so soft after using it and it is so nourishing and hydrating. The only downside is the scent of the moisturiser, but that can be overlooked.
Perfect salveI heard lots about this before actually trying it but at first, I wasn't all that impressed. Since my skin isn't dry, it was too heavy and sticky as a moisturiser. However, it works perfectly as an ointment for whenever I get red skin after insect contact in summer.
GreatVery moisturising for my hands and cuticles
Love love loveThis cream totally gives my skin a plump hydrated glow! Love it and highly recommend
Many uses, but not for an everyday hand balmThe best use for this product is to use as a highlighter on the face. I personally find it too greasy to use as a hand cream, although might be a good night option with gloves. Glad they have since released a lighter version!
Very moisturising but questionable scentI bought this product as I heard a few reputable beauty YouTubers rave about it. The texture of the product is really thick like difficult to spread initially but you can work it into your fingers and then it will become easier to apply. The smell is the only reason I gave them one less star. I know it’s not important but the smell really reminds me of something alcoholic.. like a bad decision hah...Read More
Love this for slugging!This is a super thick cream and I wouldn't use it as a moisturiser on its own, but I love it for slugging! A few times a week I apply a layer over my nightly skincare routine as a barrier to lock it in - I look like a shiny disco ball but totally worth it. You wake up with the smoothest skin ever! Also great on cuticles and dry skin patches. Strong fruity scent, but I personally love the smell.
Unsure about this oneStill so unsure what to make of this stuff! It smells so pungent & the scent is not great, it’s not horrible but it’s also nothing amazing, just smells like a fake lemon scent, kind of like house cleaner. It is decent as a cuticle cream but I don’t find it moisturising enough for my skin elsewhere, especially as it does not spread super well. I have very dry skin, eczema & sensitive skin in genera...Read More
Heavy DutyThis product is a life saver during the colder months when my skin starts becoming more flaky despite the amount of moisturiser I layer on. The product has a thick consistency but absorbs fast into the skin and I like to use it on top of my usual skincare routine to give extra hydration. The cream does have a rather strong herbal citrusy smell which may be a downside for some people.
Dry skins best friendThis is the best occlusive barrier cream I have found for my dry, flaky, eczema prone skin. It is so thick you don’t even need to use a lot and I use it as my last step in my routine to lock in all the moisture I’ve just put on my face in my routine. I was hesitant to get this as it has fragrance and essential oils in it but my skin has not reacted to those at all! The fragrance is a little strong...Read More
Truly delightful!This product is amazing at what it promises. It is thick and offers supreme protection against the winter elements. It also smells nice and doesn't cost the earth, so it has my vote every time!
it has it's placeA really nice stand by product if you're super dry or irritated, but it's very very thick and sticky -- you have to work it between your hands before applying (pat, don't rub, you won't get anywhere) I do like to have it on hand for SOS skin moments or as a thick hand cream at night, but I could live without it.
Thick!I have quite dry skin so I was really looking forward to trying this product out. However, I found it really hard to spread over my whole face and neck in a 'kind to skin' way. I felt like I had to really pull it around and it was quite sticky to work with. More times than not, I also had a slight 'tight' feeling of the skin after use which was disappointing as my face looked very shiny and moistu...Read More
Holy grail!This moisturiser is it. It's super nourishing, rich and calming and is the perfect defence against the havoc winter seems to wreak on my skin. I ordered this size just to see what the hype was about but will definitely be ordering the 75ml bottle next time.
naturalThis is a miracle worker in the winter. Works on the hands and face and smells divine
Beautiful!Beautiful product for very dry skin! I used on my face and given its pretty thick and tacky I’d recommend using well before bed time so it can absorb well. Smells like endota spa too!!
Skin saverThis is the best product l for very dry skin! I use this on my elbows, knees, cuticles and of course my race at night throughout winter! It is super thick, so my trick is to run it under the hot tap before use to soften it. Apply onto your face at night to wake up with smooth, glows skin!
HydratingSuch a hydrating product- leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturised. This bottle is a great size for day-to-day or travel, as it fits nicely in my bag.
hydration ... sensation, highly reccommended for cold winters.I picked this up after seeing Dr. Shereene Idriss raving about it on instagram. I have dry combination skin and was looking for a thirst quencher during Winter. And oh boy (girl), did this do the trick.
The ingredients are really great, my only issue is that it's scented, I prefer something with less essential oils. I was able to overlook that given how hydrating this cream is.
Favourite heavy duty moisturiserWeleda’s Skin Food is my absolute favourite moisturiser. You can use it on your face and body and doesn’t make me break out at all. It’s deeply hydrating
Those with sensitive skin... read before usingI purchased this product to use as a moisturiser in my night-time skincare routine after reading all the rave reviews. I get dry, flaky skin in the winter so I was hoping this 'skin food' would work to hydrate/calm my dry patches and soothe my face. Boy was in for a surprise - the texture of this cream is very tacky, it takes a few rubs for it to become spreadable. I used this on my face once, my ...Read More
Super hydrating!I have combination skin that is both oily and dry in some areas. I am also prone to breakouts and blackheads. This moisturizer did not break me out at all or cause any irritation. I found it so soothing and hydrating! It does have a unique smell which does take a bit to get used to and it is quite thick but I love it. I use it every couple of nights for a boost and I also use it around my eyes eve...Read More
My must have for winterI finally decided to give this a go and I am so glad I did. My skin gets very dry in places during winter and this has really helped to soothe and moisture it. I put a nice layer on the dry areas before bed and my skin looks hydrated in the morning.
It is very heavy so not for everyone but if you need some intense moisture this is definitely a winner. The price point is a big plus too...Read More
Too stickyThis was just so sticky and hard to spread. It stays very tacky. I liked how it looked on bare skin, but it was a pain to put on, I felt like I was really pushing my skin around and disrupting products underneath. I think this is more of a skin salve for trouble patches rather than an all over moisturiser.
A true holy grail productI have been using this product regularly for the past 8 years... so I can offer a very tried and tested review! I began using this product when I experienced a period of stress induced facial dermatitis and absolutely nothing could quench my skins thirst for hydration and relief. I used this every night (along with the Weleda soothing skincare regime, in the pink packaging) and my skin recovered b...Read More
Wonderfully thick creamThe skin food is one of the thicker moisturiser around. I would recommend this use in winter, or whenever your skin is more dried.
Great thick cream!I bought this because I’d read about it everywhere and wanted to try it. I applied a very small amount on my face at bedtime after my usual serums and oil etc. A little goes a very long way! It is rather greasy and stays that way, so if you’re putting it on your face, it’s definitely a night product.
I woke up with very moisturised skin though, so I’m glad I bought it and will continue to us...Read More
Lifesaver this winterThis moisturiser has really helped my dry hands this winter. I constantly need to wash my hands for work, leaving my skin dry. I have been applying a thick layer in the evening to leave on overnight, and I wake up with super soft moisturised and repaired hands. It is very thick to apply and you really have to spread it, but it absorbs really well compared to some other hand moisturisers. I do tend...Read More
HydratingThis product is really thick and nourishing and i absolutely love using this on really dry skin on my hands, elbows, feet, cuticles etc. I originally bought to use as a really mositurising night cream/sleeping mask for my face and the couple of times i used it i woke up with really plump and glowy skin, but always accompanied by a massive, under the skin blind pimple that was so sore and painful. ...Read More
Beautiful productThis cream smells amazing!
Absorbs into the skin for extra nourishment and leaves the skin feeling so comfortable.
Such a reasonable price for an amazing product!
Everyone should own a tube of thisThis product is so versatile. I use it on my face, at night, about once a week for a hydration boost and I wake up glowing, I also use it on my elbows during the winter, and on any other rough spots on my skin. At the price point, why not have one to carry in your handbag?
Palms no longer dry or sweatySo I’ve been quite an avid hand lotion buyer, from body shop to loccitane, to grown alchemist...and let me tell you this was life altering! I love the fresh almost citrus’ smell and it’s ability to stay feeling smooth and not greasy!
IrritatingI received a sample size of this product.
I'm disappointed it didn't work for me. I have sensitive dry hands and instantly once I applied I got a headache and my hands felt like they were burning.
Great productI love this moisturiser. It’s great as part of a nighttime routine to give your skin a good drink! I don’t use every night as I rotate between this and retinol. It’s so great under the eyes too, and I have sensitive skin that goes red in the eye area with most products. It’s also great for dry hands.
Very hydratingPurchased the small size of this product to test it out and will definitely be going back to buy the bigger size! The cream is quite thick and requires a bit of effort to rub in properly on the skin but has been a great help in relieving my cracked and dry hands. It has a distinct smell reminiscent of gin. Only downside is the packaging as it is a bit difficult to get every last bit of the cream o...Read More
The Real DealI know understand why this product is so popular and has been for so many years! It's rich and hydrating, perfect for the driest of skin and feels super nourishing. It's become one of my new staples.
Hydration Hydration Hydration!Great product, I have dehydrated skin and I find this hydrates me all day! It’s quite thick to put on and I find a drop of a face oil helps massively! Also made my make up feel super dewy!
Just Buy It AlreadyIf you're reading this and uhm-ing and ahh-ing over it, stop scrolling and just buy it. The hype is real, this product is the business. I use it every single night (despite having oily skin), and I wake up with plump and juicy skin. I have put so many of my friends onto it, and I won't be without out. Crazy value for the price, the tube lasts forever, just buy it already.
Great hydrating mask!I use this product like a hydrating mask, once or twice a week. Smells beautiful and goes on kind of thick but easier to spread when mixed with a serum. Using this once or twice a week at night.
Beautiful head to toe creamLoveeee! Definitely rich and intensive as stated on the bottle. Has a lovely scent too. Tend to use it as a hand cream and leaves them feeling super soft and moisturised. I will also use it on any dry spots on my face.
THE SMELL....I wanted to be obsessed with this balm-like ointment but the smell makes my angry, sensitive skin scream. Good as a hand cream/ foot cream but I wouldn't use it on my face again. Avene's Ciclafate or Xeracalm balm are more occlusive alternatives without fragrance if you need deep skin restoration!
My newest essentialThis product has many uses for me. I suffer from eczema and is a great substance from steroid creams. It’s super hydrating and healing. I also love using it to help blemishes heal and as an eye cream. Honestly love this product and use it every night. I will be trying the light version in hope to use it for day time use as it is more like an ointment
Rich and thickJust be aware this product is quite thick! Would be great for dry skin and especially coming into winter! But I've got oily skin so I think I will try the lighter version next time and keep this for use on my body!
My numero unoI absolutely love this stuff!!!!!!!!!! I have an autoimmune condition which causes dry skin & this is super sticky and thick to put on but I always wake up feeling fresh & hydrated. It is an acquired smell but I love it now. Wish they made it in a huge 2L bottle so I could lather it all over
Really thickThis is really hydrating and smells beautiful, I also love that it is certified organic. It is just quite thick and takes a while to sink into the skin, so your hands feel a bit greasy immediately after use. In saying that, in the long run my hands are more supple and not dry at all.
Hit & MissThis worked really well on my elbows, they were smoother the next day. However my feet were actually drier the morning after each time I tried it.
So hydrating! So inexpensive!Super rich and hydrating and such a lovey scent. Can’t believe how good it is for the price. I really nice night cream.
love itI have very sensitive skin which can get oily. But I love love this. It does not irritate but calm my skin and helps with dehydration
LovelyI follow celebrity dermatologist Shereene Idriss (probably spelt that wrong) and she always raves about this product. It’s an amazing ointment like hydrator that smells like citrus. It’s definitely not for day use but more at night before bed when your skin needs that extra hydration. I would say it’s perfect for winter dryness! Didn’t break me out at all. Is also good for layering. It is super th...Read More
This is the BOMB.COMbetter than any expensive night moisturiser. magic, simply magic. I use it as the last step of my night routine over my whole face and also as a spot treatment (applied thickly) to fast track healing broken skin from blemishes.
Literally food for your skinLove this stuff. It’s super thick but really works on dry skin. My hands have been so dry from over washing and using gloves at work and this stuff has really calmed down the dryness, itchiness and redness on my hands (I think I had some kind of dermatitis) and it’s practically gone. I also put it around my cuticles and feet. Does the trick.
Not impressedOnly used a sample and reacted to it, wouldn't recommend.
Super moisturisingVery moisturising and has a beautiful scent. I always carry this with me during winter and while I’m travelling. I use it on EVERYTHING - hands, feet, body and even my face when it’s super dry during winter.
Super hydrating and nourishingThis is a regular purchase for me. I use it on my children that suffer from dry skin. I absolutely love to use it daily on dry areas especially my feet it helps cracked skin
Literally skin foodIt smells good enough to eat. This product really showcases the philosophy behind Weleda, and genuinely nourishes. I also feel guilt free knowing it is made so well, and the price point is absurdly good.
Dry Skin FixI have dryish skin and use this as a night cream and my skin drinks it all in over night and I wake up super hydrated with very happy skin. The cream is rich and very thick and you can feel it on your skin, takes a long time to set so not for the moisturising faint hearted but I absolutely love it for me!
Amazing moisturiser- Glides on smoothly onto skin
-Maintains moisture throughout the day
- Great moisturiser to use before applying make-up.
creamy and thickThis helps a lot in helping my skin with the dryness from retinol. It is also an amazing cream for my hand, face and body
good for dry skini use this at night in winter and it keeps my skin from drying out
Thick and moisturisingThis product is THICK but so deeply moisturising. I use it on my face overnight when I'm feeling like I need deep moisturising or on my elbows and knees when they're feeling particularly dry.
Super moisturisingA very thick and heavy product. I have absolutely loved using on my face. Too thick to use daily. Would recommend for very dry skin
Never loved this as much as I do right now (hand washing overkill!)I LOVE this product, but now more than ever, in light of the recent COVID situation, and subsequent hand washing I have adopted, nothing is soothing my dry hands like this Weleda skin food. It is a bit heavy if you are typing and working, I just pop it on the top of my hands during the day and rub them together. At night though, it goes everywhere! Have also used it as a face mask when skiing and ...Read More
Super thick & nourishingThis is great as a last step in your skin care routine. I use it on those nights that I use The Ordinary's retinol. I also use it on my feet after I've wiped them with a cotton pad soaked in Alpha H liquid gold. You have to warm it up in your fingertips a bit first otherwise it can feel like it drags a bit on your skin.
Nourishing and thickVery moisturizing if you have dry skin, especially around the eyes like me. It is very thick which is nice although it takes a bit of work to spread all over your face. Will try the Light version next time.
Lives up to the hype!This product really lives up to the hype. I heard about it from Leigh and Kelly on youbeauty. (Don’t worry!! I am a adore uncensored addict too!!) it’s the first thing in years that’s help clear up a couple of patches of psoriasis!! So good I bet even Kimmy K would use it!
EssentialThis is essential for your bathroom, it helps with dry elbows, feet, face, it a very versatile and thick. Best to use at night.
The BEST moisturiser dry skinI've been using Weleda moisturizer for almost a month now and I can honestly say after trying SO many different moisturisers Weleda Skin Food is by far the best and SOOOO affordable. It's the only moisturiser I have used on my very dry acne-prone skin that actually HYDRATES!! I wake up in the morning and my skin actually looks plump and not dull and dry. Because it is a very thick consistency I ch...Read More
Good sizeI love this so much for travel as it's such a good size. And the moisturiser is so good. I usually take it with me when I'm in the snow and it prevents my skin going flaky.
Miracle productThis is such a wonderful product. Have been using this skin food as a lip balm and also for cuticles and its the best thing I have ever used. Will be ordering more this week. Thanks Weleda this is such a great product.
Food for your skinAn amazing product!! Every time I get a instant itch on my skin, I use this. It smells amazing, takes away any skin irritation and heals wounds on skin very quickly. This is a must have in any handbag!!
Amazing smellI live the smell of this product. Super thick and hydrating. Probably too much for day time but amazing before bed.
Great for really dry skinI purchased this as I was in need of a super intense moisture hit after suffering really dry skin for a week. I had heard so much noise about this product so wanted to give it a go! It is super thick, and I would definitely not recommend using it in the morning under makeup - it is far too thick, and sometimes it felt like my skin wasn't breathing. However, I would apply this product of an evening...Read More
Skin felt amazingI have very dry skin, and dry heels, I have tried absolutely everything on my feet and nothing works, this cream has made a massive difference to my dry feet, and the best part it doesn’t feel greasy on your skin, but moisturises so well, and smells really fresh
Beautiful as a balmIt's perfect size for a lap balm to carry around I used it to touch up my dry lips and face in the hot months. It smells great and works amazing.
Really liked this for my dry under eyesI had really dry, almost scaly patches under my eyes, and this helped to sort them out. It was a bit too think to use anywhere else, but I did really like how it worked for the dry patches.
Thirsty skin loves this stuffI use this to lock in facial oils of a night time if my skin is a little on the thirsty side. It’s very thick and greasy, however you’ll wake up with baby soft skin. It’s a bit too thick for day use in my opinion, but I love having this in my cabinet and a little goes a long way.
Very thick, great for dry skinThis is a very thick cream, so if I use it on my face for rosacea or something similar I use it sparingly, and it does the trick. But because it's so thick it works really well on dryer parts of the body like elbows, heels, etc.
The best!Weleda Skin food is the best cream I have ever used for my heels. I didn’t set out to use this cream on my heels, but began putting some on when I did my legs. I can honestly say my very dry heels have never looked better, there is no dryness anymore! It’s much less greasy than ‘heel balm’ I now use it solely on my heels once a day.
Will bail you out if you've over sensitised your skinSometimes I use too many acids/exfoliants (oops) and Weleda skin food is always there to save the day. Its VERY thick, but it works wonders. It soothes and hydrates my skin without blocking pours. Smells like essential oils which I love too. Bit expensive for size though - 30ml is very small.
fulfillingthis moisturizer is like nothing else! its so thick and heavy but my skin just absolutely loves it! this cream is amaazing for anyone who has super dry skin that needs to feel nourished sooth and hydrated. liter rally dont think i could live without it now
Very richI received a sample of this it's very rich and creamy I liked it for the body but not the face would be great for the hands
Too rich for meI received a deluxe sample of this and was keen to give it a go after reading so many people rave about it. Unfortunately, the formula is too rich and oily for me. I might give the light version a try instead.
EnrichingPerfect for winter dryness, so enriching, the smells not great , but this is great for my winter lips and cuticles.
She thicc girlI love the smell of this cream, but it is very thick. I have dry, eczema prone skin, and it’s too thick for the face. I’ve started to mix it with another moisturiser to thin it down a bit, and then it’s great to use on the face. Leaves my skin sooooo soft.
Amazed how good it is!I loathe moisturizing my body. Especially when my whole body is left feeling greasy! This product surprised me! It absorbs fast and feels amazing on!
my go-toI use this everywhere except for my face and love it! My skin is dry, dry, dry so anything I use needs to be super hydrating.
Amazing!Amazing product I can not live without it. Ridiculously moisturising for ridiculously dry skin
Absolute winnerThis is a great product. It's an instant fix when your hands have got all dry and cracked, but it's also great anywhere else on your body including the face. I use it to fix that dry flaky skin around your nose nose you get after you've had a cold. Love it. And this size is small enough to fit in my kit bag at work.
Working the magic!I purchased this on a recommendation from a friend after suffering from severe dry skin.
Definitely takes a little getting used to, can leave a bit of a film on top of the skin, I'll often put this on before going to bed whilst reading a book and just let it work it's magic. My skin is always feeling great in the morning!!
