Product review: Weleda Almond Soothing Facial Masque

Two almonds in a heart shapeRemember our love for sweet almond oil? How we called it your best friend and tried to match-make it with your sensitive and irritated skin? Well, here we go again.

This time of year sweet almond is especially helpful – seasons are changing and your skin may or may not be too impressed by spring’s arrival. Cue Weleda Almond Soothing Facial Masque – and we are very lucky that Jessica agreed to try it and share her thoughts below.

‘After trying out the Weleda Soothing Almond Facial Oil earlier this year, I was excited and curious to try the rest of the products from their almond skin care range.

This mask arrived on my doorstep just as my skin needed it most. At the turn of every season my skin goes through a bit of an identity crisis and this Spring has been no different, with my face deciding to become quite dry and more sensitive than usual.

The Weleda mask seemed to take care of both of these issues in one night. The product itself is a thick yellow (fragrance free) paste that applies to the face in a transparent layer. You have the option to either leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes and then remove the excess with a cotton bud, or pat the remaining product into skin and let it sink in overnight.

I chose to let it sink in, as after 20 minutes of letting it rest there wasn’t very much product left on my skin anyway. This mask was very gentle, and it really felt like my face was drinking it in. The next day my skin was left looking and feeling soft and hydrated. A definite winner for me.’

Thanks so much Jessica!
