I like to use stuff for a while if I'm going to do a product review. Things work differently over time, as you get used to them or notice whether they work well long-term.
These little lotions were in a Vegan Cuts Beauty Box. I really love the Beauty Box - I feel like it gives me a nice range of stuff to try, often in sample sizes, so if something really doesn't work for me, I haven't ended up with a full-size product that's going to waste. And I have liked a majority of the stuff in the Beauty Boxes so far.
So, 4 Weleda lotions. I was happy to try these because everyone is always so hopped up about Weleda and what a great brand they are. (Weleda is not a strictly vegan company - their vegan products are listed on this page. None of their products or product ingredients are tested on animals and they discuss some of their other efforts and values at this page.)
- I like the consistency of these -- they're kind of middle of the road. They feel lightweight going on but are pretty moisturizing for not being so thick. Not greasy or filmy. They absorb nicely. They're not a winter weight moisturizer if you are looking for something really thick and protective but for every other day of the year, they're perfect. (I only mention this because it's winter in NYC.)
- I like the Citrus, Pomegranate and (surprisingly) Sea Buckthorn scents. I can see buying these scents in the future - especially Citrus and Pomegranate.
- I usually love rose-scented stuff. Even the fakey Dr. Bronner's rose stuff. I'm a rose fan. But the Wild Rose Weleda lotion makes me gag. It is so unlike any rose scent I've ever smelled in a truly horrible way. (I'm so sorry, Weleda! Everything else was great!) Your olfactory equipment might be different but, fair warning, rose-fans - smell this one first!
