Weleda Almond Soothing Cleansing Lotion - pics, swatches, review

Hello, Beautiful!

I've been really into cleansing lotions/creams and even oils verses regular cleansers, and one that I tried out more recently is the Weleda Almond Soothing Cleansing Lotion. This cleansing lotion smells great and is amazing for dry skin, as it leaves your skin feeling hydrated - great for those with sensitive skin too. Check out my full review below, including all the product info, after the pics!

Weleda Almond Soothing Cleansing Lotion Info & Review:
Cost/Availability: $19.50 (2.5 fl oz full size). Available on the Weleda website, on Amazon, and everywhere else Weleda products are sold.
My Rating: 3 out of 5 Kisses

Gently cleanses without drying. Sensitive and reactive skin get soothed and restored with this gentle hypoallergenic Almond Soothing Cleansing Lotion. This natural face wash is a creamy, fragrance-free facial treatment with organic ingredients that gently cleanses and protects your skin.

Organic sweet almond oil is packed with essential fatty acids that help nourish and soothe your sensitive skin while balancing your natural moisture level for truly healthy beauty. Plum kernel oil in this natural face wash contains high quantities of antioxidants and vitamins A and E, which absorb easily to soften your skin and protect from harmful environmental influences. Your skin feels refreshed, soft and balanced. Delightfully mild, you can't help but be soothed by the purity of your naturally cleansed skin.

This cleansing lotion smells great - I love almond scents and if you like almond scents too then you'll like this way this smells. The texture is nice - it has a lightweight lotion feel with a slight gritty texture.

As far as taking off makeup, I don't think this is the best solution. You'd need to do a double cleanse or take off your makeup with something else - like a makeup wipe or a pre-cleanse oil - because this just doesn't do the job on its own. I do find it does the best job at removing makeup when you apply it to a dry face verses applying to a wet face, however, I still always see makeup on my towel after I wipe my face so I don't think this can get everything like other cleansers can for me. Maybe if I let the cleanser sit for a couple minutes it may work better to get everything off, but I haven't tried that yet.

This cleansing lotion left my skin feeling very hydrated, so I think it's perfect for those with dry skin. Even great for those with combo skin - which I have - especially moving into these drier, colder months where I tend to be more dry. If you have oily skin you may feel like it leaves your face too hydrated, so you may want to skip this one, follow up with a good toner after using this, or just use this at nighttime a few times a week if you feel like some of your other skincare products are drying out your face. This doesn't foam up at all, so if you're a person who likes foaming/lathering cleansers then this is not for you.

I had a hard time giving this product a rating. I feel like for 2.5 fl oz at $19.50 I should get a product that cleanses my face and completely removes my makeup - but this doesn't do the best job at removing makeup - so I'd either have to do a double cleanser (using twice as much product, something I wouldn't want to do with having so little in the first place) or use another makeup removal method before using this. But if you were using this in the morning, when you shouldn't have makeup on from washing it off the night before, this would be a good cleanser in itself. But then again, for the price you get very little product. At the same time, there are very few preservatives so you wouldn't want a bigger tube or it could go bad. I also think this is one of the best cleansers as far as leaving skin feeling hydrated. If you have combo to oily skin you may feel this leaves your skin too hydrated. So what I concluded on was to rate this a 3 out of 5 Kisses - an average/good rating. I feel like some people are going to love it and some people are going to hate it. It's just one of those products, and skin care is so personal to each individual person; the way something works on me may not work the same on you, even if we have the same skin type.

I think this is a good product to anyone with normal to dry skin, especially those with dry skin, and for anyone that falls into that category who also have sensitive skin.
