This cream is a staple to healing my psoriasis!
5 Star Review   By jojo2012 on Vitacost - Apr 18, 2013   

A very emollient and rich cream. I use it on a daily basis and used it several times a day to help with my psoriasis. I keep several in stock so as not to run out.

Best hand cream in the world!
5 Star Review   By 4today on Vitacost - Mar 9, 2013   

Weleda skin food not only moisturizes, it heals cuts in your fingers made by dryness and the cold. It is the only cream that prevents these small cuts and heals them when they arrive in the cold weather. It smells wonderful also!

This is the BEST cream for the face!!!
5 Star Review   By stayingyoung1 on Vitacost - Feb 26, 2013   

I stumbled upon using Waleda Skin Food for my face while trying different brands to replace a very, very costly kind I used to use. I wanted something wholesome and natural. I try not to be without it now and that was about 1 1/2 or 2 years ago. My skin care routine is simple - I wash with a pure soap - either one I have purchased from Vitacost or a local soap maker - with very warm water and a clean cloth, then splash very warm water and then very cool water on my face. The very warm water opens the pores, the very cool closes them. I then apply (EVERY day) either pure Vitacost brand Coconut Oil or Waleda Skin Food. Often I will rub in both. It takes very little and lasts a long time.A friend a few years older than me asked me recently " Why don't you have any wrinkles?" The above easy cheap routine is why. That is why I wrote the whole thing out... I am 50 and confuse people as to my age. I take care of my body inside and out just with cheap easy wholesome foods and this routine. LOVE THIS STUFF!

Dries my hands
2 Star Review   By eastofdurango on Vitacost - Feb 26, 2013   

I bought this product based on its high rating. I don't normally even use hand cream much but this year my hands have felt dryer than usual so I gave it a try.Within a few days my FINGERTIPS were dry and flaky where they had not been before; I tried using the cream more often but it only got worse.I have switched to Aveeno Daily Care moisturizing cream and that works great!

Works well but oily
4 Star Review   By Kristalyn on Vitacost - Sep 7, 2012   

This is one of the ONLY skin creams I have found that actually helps & soothes my severe eczema. The only downside is that it is oily, so it's kinda messy and I have to use it at night or when I can just sit and let it soak in. But it's worth it because it is one of the few products that actually works well for me.

One cream for the entire body and it smells good.
5 Star Review   By Attleboroneighbor on Vitacost - Aug 9, 2012   

In the past I used Nivea but stopped after deciding that I wanted as pure a product as possible on my skin especially since the skin is considered to be a "third kidney" and I didn't want to absorb impurities into my body. I went to the Weleda website which was quite nice and discovered that here is a company with foresight. I first tried Weleda Skin Food after I purchased it for half price at Whole Foods. It was about $16 at the time. Since then the prices on line have gone up. You can use this cream all over your body. It smells pleasant and adds a thin layer of protection. I used it this week to get rid of the itchy skin after being at the beach.

5 Star Review   By VeryOldandVeryWise on Vitacost - Jul 20, 2012   

Not only is this good for elbows, feet, and general skin care, I regularly (weekly) put it on my face overnight, and it really adds moisture and most of all, elasticity, to my skin!

5 Star Review   By 3babys on Vitacost - Jul 9, 2012   

I've tried so many hand cream, but this one is so far the best one. Smells so good and moisturize the skin, but doesn't leave the stickiness. Its thick, so you don't need to use much.I love it so much and I bought an another one for my friend too!

YES! Food for your skin!
5 Star Review   By rcl137 on Vitacost - Jun 28, 2012   

I absolutely love this cream. You don't need much at all and it is very nourishing. The fine lines around my lips, eyes and between my brows are nearly gone. This cream has plumped up my skin. I first apply sunscreen to my face and then this cream. I put a really small dab (smaller than a pea) on my finger and then rub my fingers together to emulsify the cream so that I can easily spread a very thin layer over my face. My skin stays moist all day. Don't use too much or you will be greasy. I love this for the back of my hands too. I'm almost 48 and have really notice my hands aging and this cream is helping them look younger.

one of the best
5 Star Review   By bryston on Vitacost - Jun 20, 2012   

I use this product on hands that get cracks around the cuticles. I have found this cream to be the best at speeding the healing. It is thick and a bit hard to get used to at first, but the times I have used it has relieved the dyrness and cracks better than anything else I have used. The best results have come when I apply it at night and cover my hands with nitrile gloves. When I take the gloves off I use another small bit of the skin food, this works well for me. The use of the gloves overnight helps a great deal and the morning application seem to go on smoother because the warmth of the gloves softens the cream to a great degree. Bottom line...this product is of very very high quality.

Skin love
5 Star Review   By happyhousewife on Vitacost - Apr 26, 2012   

I actually use this for my heels mainly. Sometimes I use a little on my knees or elbows, but it is the thickest, most moisturizing lotion I can find for my dry feet. The smell is yummy and my kids line up to use it also. Seems to last a long time. This is my 4th or 5th tube of this stuff.

Weleda Skin Food Cream
5 Star Review   By DaisyJane52 on Vitacost - Jan 29, 2012   

All products sold should be this pure and good for your body. Many companies just don't make the all natural products like our ancestors used. Thank you Weleda for staying so pure and natural! I highly recommend this product and all Weleda products... and no I don't work for the company:-)~ DaisyJane52

Potters Hands Fix!
5 Star Review   By EarthWoman on Vitacost - Jan 28, 2012   

I am a potter and after 4-6 hours a day of working in clay my hands are a wreck! I put this on with the little gloves at night and the next morning my hands are soft and happy! A miracle! I used to get torn cuticles but this stops that in its tracks. Also great for under your eyes and on your throat at night.Not for face-causes mine to break out. Love that it is all natural.

5 Star Review   By MVCAC on Vitacost - Jan 25, 2012   

I've been using Skin Food for years and absolutely love it. I have dry skin and the richness of the cream feels very nourishing and protective. I use it on my face, lips, hands, and feet. Its very convenient to have an all purpose cream like that especially when traveling. It goes on thick but absorbs beautifully... The light and refreshing citrusy smell is wonderful and very natural.

Love this thick cream!
5 Star Review   By busymom3 on Vitacost - Jan 11, 2012   

While a bit expensive, I think it is one of the best values for cream like this. I use this for areas with serious dryness or damage and I love it. It goes on thick and a bit oily, but is absorbed quickly and my skin feels great after. I use it on hands, elbows, etc. It is not an everyday lotion for me since it is so thick, it is more for damage control.

Amazing lotion
5 Star Review   By kitps on Vitacost - Jan 5, 2012   

I work in a kitchen all day long and this lotion is heaven to my cracked and dry hands. I love it. The smell is light and slightly fruity; it is a VERY thick lotion, some may find that unappealing. I use it on my face, neck, hands, and feet everyday.

Heavy Duty Moisturizer
4 Star Review   By ParticularPickyGuy on Vitacost - Nov 23, 2011   

This stuff is very heavy duty. I have eczema on my hands and it's the only non-prescription thing I've tried which helps keep it in check. Also mostly keeps my hands from the breaking, raw skin of winter dryness. Also smells great. But it's very greasy so I only use it at night.

Heavy Duty Hand Cream
4 Star Review   By AngelsFan on Vitacost - Oct 3, 2011

I love this cream... it smells good and it makes my skin glow! I usually only use it at night during summer and both day and night in the winter... It is a thick cream so if you need to put on make up you will need to wait a good 10 min before applying your make up.

This cream smells incredible (not too strong), and seems thick when you put it on but absorbs well and doesn't leave skin oily. I have combo skin and it's great for nighttime...under make-up, I mix it with oil free SPF 40 and it wears well under make-up. I had been expecting something lighter but this works for me.

Skin Nutrition
4 Star Review   By MESS on Vitacost - Mar 30, 2011   

Skin Food is highly effective, easily absorbed and digested nutrition and hydration for even the most dry, scaly skin. Your skin consumes it like a sponge and relieves the annoying redness, itching, and flaking that accompany the most parched dermatological deserts and the bees wax seals in the moisture even when exposed to moisture. Yet, this soothing combination of emolients is not greasy.

Great Stuff!
5 Star Review   By WCF1 on Vitacost - Mar 2, 2011   

I've used this product for a number of years now (although usually the German version "Hautcreme"). For the driest skin--e.g. on the elbows--it works wonders. For injured skin, it accelerates healing and reduces inflammation. It does have a strong scent, which might bother some users. I didn't like the smell at first, but I do now.

Best Lotion for Dryer Skin
5 Star Review   By chicchi on Vitacost - Dec 27, 2010   

This is very rich yet doesn't get greasy after while. I love the citrus smell.

Little Pricey but worth it!
5 Star Review   By fredee on Vitacost - Dec 18, 2010   

I'm on my third tube in a year. This cream WORKS and LASTS. I have dry, cracked skin in the winter. My kids hands are so dry they bleed. Ever since we've been using this cream, our hands are smooth and soft. I will never buy major brand creams again...

smells lovely
3 Star Review   By oliverocks on Vitacost - Oct 15, 2010   

The smell is great- a very natural citrus that seems potent at first, but quickly fades. I was really excited about this cream after trying a sample. I wanted to try it on my face and see if it would help my very dry skin. It does to an extent, but it also leaves my face very shiny. I thought I would use it for my hands instead. I put it on and it was quite greasy for a few minutes and then it seemed to disappear altogether. Gonna use this tube up somehow, but won't purchase again.

ingredients had separated
4 Star Review   By BarginGal on Vitacost - Oct 10, 2010   

I love Weleda's Skin Food Cream but this is the first time I found the ingredients had separated when I opened the tube. Since it's inside a metal container, I can't very well massage the tube and incorporate them again. Maybe the product was stored somewhere too hot and this what resulted. Normally it's a nice creamy consistency, but now it is watery AND clumpy. I'm disappointed.

Super Hydrating, Safe
5 Star Review   By GreenMachine79 on Vitacost - Jul 2, 2010   

My toddler suffers from very dry skin on her legs and I dont want to slather her up with a bunch of chemicals. Even the dermatologist was impressed with the effectiveness of this cream. We buy tons of it. GREAT PRODUCT!

Yuuummmm!
5 Star Review   By phluffy on Vitacost - Jun 3, 2010   

Sometimes it sits a bit oily on my hands when I use too much. Usually it soaks in well & feeds and heals my feet and hands. Also helpful for my husbands rough hands that get really mangled at work.

The Most Effective
5 Star Review   By BabsNYC on Vitacost - May 28, 2010   

My son gets the worst chapped hands in Winter months. This year it lasted well into Spring. I bought Weleda's Skin Food. He applied it sparingly at night, before bed and a little throughout the day. His skin quickly cleared up.It's very rich, and lasts a long time. Well worth the money.

This really works
5 Star Review   By AmyO on Vitacost - May 16, 2010   

I wear sandals alot and have very dry skin on my feet - a friend recommended this product for my peeling heels. Not having found anything that worked, I put some on my heels out of a tester. The next day my heels were nearly 50% better. I went straight to the store and bought a tube for $17. This is great on heels, feet, elbows, hands, and even the face. I love this product. It is a bit oily when first applied but it absorbs into the skin pretty fast. Smells good too.

Best Dry Skin Product Ever Used!
5 Star Review   By BLSwriter on Vitacost - Apr 25, 2010   

I discovered Weleda Skin Food in More magazine many years ago. It was highly recommended, so I thought I would give it a try. I immediately became hooked! The citrus smell is divine and the moisture it provides to my aging, dry skin is unparalleled. Vitacost.com offers it at the best price on the internet.

Great value!
5 Star Review   By StefanieL on Vitacost - Feb 20, 2010   

I have very dry skin (especially on my face) so this product is a lifesaver in the winter. It's a little greasy so I put it on at night. This is the cheapest I've seen it, so it's a great value!

Great Hand Cream
5 Star Review   By HerNibs on Vitacost - Feb 19, 2010   

This is a heavy moisture cream, but there are times when your skin needs some extra help. This one works. I wish it was fragrance free, because I am bothered by certain scents.

Great winter hand cream
5 Star Review   By Astrolizer on Vitacost - Feb 18, 2010   

This cream is great for dry cracking hands in winter. I use it right after I get out of the shower and haven't had my usual cracking since I started using it. It is a little greasy though.

Great for winter
5 Star Review   By BeeLou on Vitacost - Feb 17, 2010   

Loved this cream, but would recommend it as an overnight treatment. Heavy and greasy when first applied, but is absorbed after time. My husband uses it mainly for winter chapped hands and I put it on areas of my face which need a little boost of moisture. Gorgeous smell - will definitely buy again.

Best Product!!!
5 Star Review   By Tambilina on Vitacost - Feb 17, 2010   

We live in a very dry climate and in the winter our hands get so dry from washing them all the time, trying to stay healthy, that they crack and bleed. This is the only product that we have found that is wonderful and it smells great too. Thanks for such a awesome product.

Great for winter skin!
5 Star Review   By srqgirl on Vitacost - Feb 11, 2010   

Every winter, my skin gets really upset and I start the search for something to calm it down. This stuff is great! Keeps my skin supple, smells wonderful. Great as a hand and foot cream, or anywhere that needs an extra boost of moisture.

Smells bad, works great
5 Star Review   By LPCB on Vitacost - Dec 18, 2009   

I have really, really dry hands, and this stuff works about as well as anything I've tried. I'm all for natural products, but I have to admit the smell of this cream is kind of funky. It does go away quickly (the smell) and leaves the skin moist but not greasy. I would buy it again for sure.

not for the casual moisturizing
4 Star Review   By DanaLynne on Vitacost - Oct 7, 2009   

I bought this cream because I liked the name. The consistency of this is very heavy and it does not blend easily. I think this product is for people who have very serious dry and chapped hands, feet and elbows (more localized skin moisturizing needs).

Wonderful Moisturizer
5 Star Review   By suzzanne on Vitacost - Sep 23, 2009   

I am a health care professional and I wash my hands constantly, resulting in dry, cracked, and chapped skin. I love skin food because it is so gentle and is deeply moisturizing. Even using it only a couple of times per day will help to prevent skin irritation. Plus, a little goes a long way.

Cures dry skin fast
4 Star Review   By CosmoBoy on Vitacost - Sep 19, 2009   

This product is very good and helps heal dry patches. But, it's very thick and doesn't cream on like a body cream does. That is what I wanted it for and for air travel. Doubt I'd purchase again, because this will go a long way.

3 Star Review   By Lela on Vitacost - Sep 4, 2009

Love the scent!
4 Star Review   By Nettle on Vitacost - Aug 13, 2009   

This hand and body cream has a gorgeous orange or citrus scent but I do question its ability to heal chapped hands effectivly. It feels nice but my hands are in water quite a lot and I find myself needing to apply it often. I would recommend this product because I think I am particularly hard on my hands and the average person may find it very effective.

This cream ROCKS
5 Star Review   By Aesthetician on Vitacost - Aug 13, 2009   

This rich, nourishing cream is fabulous. It smells (very strongly) like a fresh gin and tonic with a slice of lime. The texture is very rich and it needs to be warmed up in your hands before it's applied to avoid greasiness. It feels perfect on my skin, which is severely dehydrated. It's rich and velvety without being sticky or greasy. It leaves my skin glowing and healthy. I apply it, then wet my hands with water and massage it in, adding more water if needed to help the cream absorb completely. The best thing about this cream? The price! It's organic and effective and affordable!

5 Star Review   By RICCI717 on Vitacost - Aug 13, 2009   

I love this product. Very creamy, not greasy at all. Really quenches the skin. Tried this product at a department store, but did not want to pay what they were charging. This is a bargain. I bought more than one at this price! Thank you.

Awesome product
5 Star Review   By JHLS on Vitacost - Aug 13, 2009   

I originally bought this cream for my dry, cracked hands and it worked wonderfully in healing them. When my cheeks broke out in itchy, red bumps after overusing various scrubs & serums, I decided to try Skin Food on my face. The next morning my bumps were nearly gone and the itchiness had vanished. Within a few days my face was bump-free and luminous. Had been hesitant to put it on my sensitive face, but happy I did since it worked beautifully. The cream is thick, but if you warm it between your fingers before applying, it glides on much easier. Goes on feeling heavy and greasy, but actually absorbs fantastically.

5 Star Review   By topazrules on Vitacost - Aug 13, 2009

Love the stuff!
5 Star Review   By TnCHutz on Vitacost - Aug 13, 2009   

This is great hand cream. I'm a dental hygienist, I'm washing my hands several times a day. This seems to be the best for my hands. I also like that it has organic and biodynamilcally grown ingrediants, with no parabens or synthetic fragrances. It smells great naturally. It is on the expensive side, but a little goes a long way - and this is the lowest price I've found!

5 Star Review   By bugsmommy on Vitacost - Aug 13, 2009   

This is my favorite hand cream, but it is a bit pricey in the stores. I was thrilled to find it here at such a discount, and I stocked up so that I have a tube everywhere I might need it-my purse, office, by my bed...smells great and works fantastic.

Really good, but not good enough
4 Star Review   By Rocstarr on Vitacost - Aug 13, 2009   

This product smells just great, goes on smoothly, and nice and thick. But to fight off the redness and scalyness that accompanies eczema.. it did not win. My son is 10mths old and had severe eczema. I was told to try this product and it would work wonders for his skin. All it really did for his skin was moisturize well, not clear it, not stop itch, not make smoother. I am now using Mustela products and I give it an A+.
