Want Baby-Soft Skin? Look No Further Than – Weleda, Calendula Cream Bath


Ooooh, I love this Cream Bath, it’s a treat and a half! It’s just so creamy, moisturising, and kind to the skin, (well, as I said , it was originally made for babies’ skin, so it has to be ultra-mild!)

It doesn’t have much of a smell, just a faint suggestion of almonds. But it has a very ‘homely’ aroma, when mixed with hot water, (sorry that’s the only way I can describe it!)

When it is run under the hot water faucet, the cream bath osmotizes through the water, giving it an even milky consistency. When you get in, the warmth envelops you in a much more luxurious way, than any synthetic bubble bath.

This is the ‘real-deal’ it moisturises the skin continuously as you relax. And you can relax, with this cream bath, there are no unexpected nasties such as parabens or other types of preservatives, there’s no added fragrances or colourants, lurking in there thank-goodness!

The cream bath protects the skin from moisture loss. After a ‘Weleda Calendula Bath’, I definitely noticed my skin felt smoother and softer, and that was after just one bath! This continued as I have used the product and my skin health in general has improved. It looks better, feels better and even my dry areas feel smooth! Definitely a bargain at £8.95

But what is this ‘calendula’?

Weleda explains on their site:

“Medicinal uses of calendula are manifold. Many date back centuries. It was once said that ‘where Calendula is, no pus will form’, and it’s most famous for wound healing, reducing inflammation, and as an antiseptic, so used to treat countless skin conditions from skin ulcerations to eczema. Such large amounts of calendula are grown for medicinal use in the former Soviet Union that it has earned the plant the nickname ‘Russian penicillin’.

Traditionally it has been prescribed for sore throats or mouth ulcers, and used to treat damaged and inflamed skin caused by mild burns, boils and sores, as well as everyday cuts and grazes.”
