My Mum Reviews The Weleda Evening Primrose Range

Hi guys! I hope you have had a great week so far! Mine has been very busy and has gone so quick which is always a good thing! Today I am sharing with you a special post. As a pre-mother's day gift, Weleda kindly sent my mum a few products from their new Evening Primrose range in exchange for her honest opinion and review on them! So let's jump right in to the review. I had my mum trial these products for 2-2.5 weeks and tell me what she liked and didn't like about these products. Let's jump right in to the products. Weleda products can be found from selected health stores, pharmacies, David Jones and

Revitalising Body Wash (RRP $18.95):
It claims to gently cleanse the skin, while leaving your skin feeling refreshed and replenished as the Omega 6 fatty acids from the Evening Primrose oil stimulates the skin and protects it from dryness and damage.
Did this body wash cleanse your skin well? Yes
Did you feel your skin was not dry after using it? It was normal

Any other comments? It smells too medicinal

Age Revitalising Hand Cream (RRP $17.95):
This product claims that Evening Primrose oil smooths rough patches, macadamia nut oil adds a protective layer on top of the skin to lock in hydration and Centella asiatica stimulates natural collagen synthesis. It also claims to promote cell growth and reduce deep lines, leaving hands soft.
Did this product smooth out any rough skin patches? Yes, overnight.

Did you notice a decrease in deep lines? No

Were your hands noticeably softer after using? Yes, but a little too oily.

Age Revitalising Day Cream (RRP $43.95):
This product boasts that macadamia nut oil helps to smooth and hydrate skin, while evening primrose oil and Centella asiatica extract boosts collagen production, for an even, more firm complexion. Deep lines are reduced and facial contour are more defined.
Did this product hydrate your skin? Yes
Does your skin look more even and firm? Yes
Have you noticed a reduction in any lines? No - she doesn't have any (great genes)

Overall comment: They all had a medicinal smell to them which was a bit off-putting to use. The hand cream would of been easier to use if it had a flip lid, which would make it easier to dispense.
