Skin Food Report....


I was putting off the follow-up blog to the skin care regime, because 1. I find it sort of boring, and 2.  I was afraid I wasn’t going to give you very good news.

BUT THEN – My dear friend whom I haven’t seen since January made the comment of comments – “Katie, your skin looks really good.”

Just when I was about to relay to you-all that I’m not estatic about the Weleda Skin Food, I get this beloved compliment.  So maybe it is working better than I thought. 


Pros:
  • It smells good.
  • It’s definitely moisturizing.
  • It’s all-natural.
  • It’s affordable.
  • It’s easy.
  • It smells really good.
  • It’s gives a dewy effect.
  • It’s European.


Cons:
  • It’s thick.
  • It’s not a miracle wrinkle-fixer (i.e. my friend is still singing botox’s praises to me – unabashedly too.)
  • Some people translate “dewy” as “greasy.” 
  • It very rarely, occasionally causes a tiny breakout, mostly if I’ve been lazy about cleansing my face.


So there’s my report:  I am not totally freaked-out in love with Skin Food.  But I’d rather be putting nature on my face than rat poison (euphemism: botox) IN my face!  And with winter around the corner and its skin-drying tendencies, I’ll stick with this until someone can sell me on something else.

HaHa, and we were just talking about how you weren't sold on it! Following your example I got some also but I'm not a fan because of it's greasy effect (yes, I say greasy, not dewey) and I also broke out from it. After this post I may give it another try, if it's still a no go....I'll send it to you!
