Today’s guest product review comes to us from G Magazine reader Sharon. Sharon won our G Mag reader giveaway and picked the product of her choice from our Face Care selection: the Facial Oil Capsules from Weleda’s Wild Rose range. She is sharing her thoughts below after a two-week trial.
‘Thanks to Echolife I was given the wonderful opportunity of trying out and reviewing Weleda’s Smoothing Facial Oil Capsules. So following are my findings and own opinions regarding this product.
The first thing I noticed about the product when I received it was the great packaging, its not often this days you get something packaged in a wonderful little blue glass jar (every time I look at it I imagine all sorts of things I could store in it later).
The oil is individually portioned in capsules which I found really good as there was no wastage and I didn’t accidentally apply too much. The first couple of times I used it I had difficulty opening the capsules, but can now rip the end off like an old pro. All care should be taken to maintain a firm grasp of the capsule as they will disappear down the plug hole if given the chance!
I decided to do the 4 week intensive treatment and have been using it for the last 2 weeks. The oil is really quite thin and applies really well to the skin, it’s a good idea for your skin to be a little damp when applying the oil as it absorbs more easily. The oil has a really great natural rose fragrance which I found quite soothing and relaxing, especially as you apply the product in the evening. I felt the fragrance helped me to unwind at the end of the day.
I didn’t notice a great deal of difference to my skin for the first couple of days, but after 4 or 5 days I noticed that in the morning my skin felt a lot smoother and the texture appeared finer. I have also found that my make up has been applying a lot more smoothly with a more flawless result.
One thing I was very impressed with was that it has removed/cleared up a small dry, problem piece of skin on the side of my nose which had been bugging me for several months and wouldn’t move on regardless of what I put on there.
I’m looking forward to finishing the final 2 weeks of the intensive treatment and seeing what the end result will be.’
Thank you Sharon, we’re glad the capsules are working well!
