Mother’s Day with Weleda

Mother’s Day is coming up this weekend, and if you’re looking for some lovely products to help your mum feel pampered this Mother’s Day, Weleda’s Evening Primrose range might just fit the bill. Weleda offered me the opportunity to have my mum to try out a couple of products from the range, and when I asked mum if she would be interested she jumped at the chance to try something new. I did a little Q&A with mum to see what she thought, and here it is –

Q1: Have you ever used Weleda products before? What do you know about the Weleda brand? No I don’t think I have used this brand before. I don’t know much about the brand other than it uses natural ingredients.

Q2: What do you look for in an eye cream? What did you think of the Weleda Evening Primrose Age Revitalising Eye and Lip Cream, did it suit your needs? In an eye cream I look for a creamy hydrating and soothing product. I thought that the cream itself was a little runny and I was not a huge fan of the smell. Especially when you apply it to your top lip it was a bit smelly. It was a strong medicinal smell. The cream itself seemed to work well but I would prefer a thicker texture and a different scent.

Q3: What do you look for in a body lotion? Did the Weleda Evening Primrose Age Revitalising Body Lotion live up to these requirements? In a body lotion I like an easily absorbed cream. This was great as it dispensed well and was easily absorbed. Did wonders for my dry and wrinkled skin. Only downside was the perfume. It was not particularly appealing.

Q4: What three things did you like best about the Weleda Evening Primrose products that you tried? Of the two products I tried I preferred the body lotion to the eye cream. I liked the way it dispensed the cream, great for travelling as well. I liked that it made a difference to my skin and my skin condition did improve using this product. I was not a big fan of the eye cream. It was runny and difficult to control how much came out of the tube. And the scent was very strong as well.

Q5: What else would you like for Mother’s Day? Is this a generic question or a genuine query? Lol.

The Weleda Evening Primrose Age Revitalising Eye and Lip Creme ($43.95) and Age Revitalising Body Lotion ($25.95) are both available for purchase from Weleda online. I’d love to know what you’re getting mum for mother’s day this year! Let me know in the comments below.
