When I read that Doutzen Kroes relies on Weleda’s Calendula Baby Oil in the run up to the Victoria’s Secret fashion show, I just had to try it- anything to get a (small) step closer to looking like that! The weather right now has been perfect for trying the oil too – it’s been super cold, which means my skin has just been drinking the oil up!
Weleda’s Calendula Baby Oil is a complete multitasker. 100% natural and organic, it’s designed to be used on even newborn babies, so if you suffer from dry or sensitised skin, it won’t be an irritant. The ingredients are incredibly well thought out – Weleda grow the golden orange calendula petals themselves, and sesame oil and Vitamin E are included for maximum skin benefits. When I first used the oil, I was surprised at how rich it was. I think I was expecting something the consistency or regular baby oil, but instead, Weleda’s is quite thick, and it feels incredibly luxurious. Since it feels so nourishing, I tend to smooth it on my arms and legs in the evening, and let it sink in overnight. The formula feels incredible, and I love the slight herbal scent. Since I’ve been using the oil, my skin feels super soft and smooth, and it’s completely eradicated any winter dryness!
Weleda’s Calendula Baby Oil costs £9.50 and is available here.
