What a steal: Weleda Almond Soothing Facial Oil


Anyone that checks in here regularly will know that I’m a huge fan of oils - body oils, hair oils and facials oils - and love the fact that nine times out of ten, they are brilliant multitaskers and can be used on the whole family.
Sweet almond oil was one of the first oils I started using in a beauty sense many years ago, and it is still a big favourite. Pressed from the nut kernels of the Sweet Almond tree, it is rich in essential fatty acids and anti-oxidant rich vitamin E - meaning that it easily penetrates deeply into the skin to protect the skin from drying, improving the skin’s barrier function and supporting natural processes. It’s also one of the less pricey oil options, and that’s why Weleda’s Almond Soothing Facial Oil - at just $26.50 for 50ml - is my ‘steal’ of the week.  
The perfect pick for allergy-prone, sensitive, inflamed and dry skin, it absorbs super quickly and works in harmony with sensitive skin to boost the skin’s natural protective function, whilst Blackthorn Blossom is included in the mix to instantly aid and support the skin for long lasting balance. Good stuff!
And now for the multitasking part: this little wonder is suitable for daily use as an alternative to moisturiser in cold weather, as an intensive skin treatment or as an eye make-up remover when you apply a few drops to a moistened cotton pad. It can also be dotted on damp skin and layered under a night cream for an extra surge of goodness and absorbs quickly so is fine for use under makeup. If you’re in need of a little boost now the weather is dropping then I highly recommend you pick a little bottle of this sweet stuff up.
