Weleda Week: Weleda Skin Food Light

(affiliate link) I recently had the pleasure of attending a Weleda Insight Day at the brand's UK headquarters. It was a beautiful day of exploring Weleda's bio-dynamic gardens and fields, learning about the brand's history and ethos, trying out a relaxing rose facial and sampling tasty vegan food. It was a very early start for a lot of us to get up to Derby for the day but it was more than worth it and only made me even more interested in a brand I already had a lot of time for.
Along with the other attendees (a mixture of Bloggers, Makeup artists and Weleda enthusiasts) I received a lovely gift of some Weleda products at the end of the day (I also raided the on site store and picked a couple of bits myself), all of which I've been enjoying trying out so I thought I would show my appreciation and share a few on the blog over the next 5 days.
To kick things off, I'll start with a variation of the brand's most well known product, Skin Food Light.

Weleda Skin Food Light

A multi-purpose cream/lotion, Skin Food Light is, you guessed it, a lighter version of the cult Skin Food.
Unlike the thick, rich texture of the original, Skin Food Light is, well, lighter really. The lotion texture of the formula absorbs beautifully, making it perfect for use all over and particularly ideal in warmer weather.
The formula combines organic Sunflower oil with Chamomile, Pansy and Calendula for a skin-calming hit of soothing moisture.
I personally really enjoy the thick glossiness of the original and use it on my face regularly in winter but as mentioned, this version is great for summer when richer creams can feel a little too heavy on those really hot days.

Skin Food Light has the same refreshing scent as the original and actually feels quite cooling on the skin so I find it to be really great for 'waking up' my face in the morning. The fast absorbing formula makes it perfect for using on hands throughout the day too.
If you're a fan of the original Skin Food, you'll probably appreciate Skin Food Light too. It's £7.95 for a 30ml tube at Boots.
