I’m not sure there is anything cuter than a child’s rosy cheeks after a walk in the fresh air, but with the winter weather causing havoc to skin I want Luca’s rosy cheeks protected, not chapped by the cold harsh weather. As I’ve said before I am officially in love with Weleda products, both for Luca and myself, mainly because they cured my boys itch when nothing else seemed to be working, but also because of the range and quality of their products. So when we were very kindly gifted some Calendula Weather Protection skin cream, I instantly slipped it into Luca’s changing bag for the next time we headed out on a walk. It wasn’t long before we used it when we went to Temple Newsam for a little autumnal photoshoot. Before I got Luca wrapped up in his pushchair I slathered his face in the cream. As usual it smells delicious (do any of their products not!?!) and Luca kept opening his mouth and trying to lick my hands as I rubbed it in. Truthfully when I squirted some into my hand I was concerned it was going to leave his face greasy and therefore would make him cold in the wind but like all their products we’ve tried so far it sunk into his skin so quickly leaving it soft and smelling good enough to eat.
After our walk in the wind and cold his cheeks were rosy red but still super soft and squishable!
I have since used it to protect his chin and under his nose when he was dribbly and snotty from teething and a cold. His skin was starting to get cracked and sore from all the nose wiping but one use of this fab stuff and his skin was back to being baby soft.
We now use it every time we leave the house for fun in the cold; Pumpkin Picking, Bonfire Night, Carol Singing, you name it we used it. The Calendula Weater Protection Skin Cream is our new best friend and literally goes everywhere with us, and don’t tell Luca but I also steal it to slick onto my lips to protect them from the harsh weather. Best lip balm I’ve used by far.
Once again Weleda, you’ve stuck to your word, your Weather Protection Skin Cream really does what it says on the tube, no wonder it has won so many awards. Best of all though, my boy will still be a beautiful skinned one even through the cold months.
I now have a wish list the length of my arm for other products to try and most of them are for me!
