Weleda Calendula Weather Protection Cream - Review

Weleda is a brand that has until now not featured on my radar but this is all about to change having had the chance to try a couple of the products from the range and been suitably impressed.

The first product I was sent to try was the Calendula Weather Protection Cream. I have enough lip balms and this was really sent for Aaron my 4yr old to test. The Winter that has just passed has been pretty nasty, icy cold weather coupled with strong winds. Aaron's lips and the area around it have really suffered - It has been sore and red and the skin on his lips all dry and flaky. Try as I might to apply one of my balms to my despair he has declared them for girls (as he had seen me use them) and has refused to use them - cue a sad mummy!

However when this arrived he asked me what it was and I said it was for children and to my delight he let me apply it :-)

Weleda say 

Intensive protection against drying winds or cold, wet weather, for babies and all the family.

Weleda Baby Calendula Weather Protection Cream contains extracts of biodynamically grown Calendula flower and precious Sweet Almond Oil to care for dry skin, leaving it visibly smooth and supple. It spreads easily and is ideal to protect skin and lips of both babies and adults.

Can be used for face, lips and hands.

Ingredients - from the Weleda website 

Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Lanolin, Beeswax (Cera Flava), Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Fragrance (Parfum)*, Limonene*, Linalool*, Benzyl Benzoate*, Benzyl Salicilate*, Geraniol* * from natural essential oils

My thoughts

This isn't really a cream more like a thick oil, a tiny bit squeezed out goes a long way. It has a very light herbal scent that is nice and pleasant. Best of all this really works. On the windy days I have been putting this on Aaron's lips and when I collect him from school his lips are perfect and soft and appear unaffected by the weather.

The 30ml tube is the perfect size for popping in the handbag and the bright packaging with a ladybird is fun and eye catching for the little ones.

One happy child and one happy adult.

Weleda Calendula Weather Protection Cream 30ml costs £7.95
