WELEDA POMEGRANATE FIRMING DAY CREAM
I have just finished this sample sized tube of Weleda Pomegranate Firming Day Cream so thought I had better write my views before I throw out the empty tube and forget how my skin felt after using this. It is no secret to anyone who regularly reads my views that I rate Weleda very highly and admire their ethics and honest approach towards their customers.
This pomegranate range is designed for those in the 40s to 50s age range and until the Evening Primrose range was brought out this was Weleda’s range that catered for the oldest age group. Personally I am happy with both ranges as they are both full of great natural ingredients to help ageing skin.
If you would like to know more about Weleda and their ethics and how they were founded check out my other blog posts with Weleda products
~~~&&&~~~~~ ABOUT POMEGRANATE ~~~&&&~~~
Pomegranate is an expert in balancing extremes, stimulating and regenerating life and some of the pomegranate trees have been found to be over 200 years old.
Pomegranate seed oil is a powerful anti oxidant and has regenerative properties as it has a high polyphenols content. Pomegranate seed oil helps to revitalise skin cells. Skin appears tighter and smoother and is fresher and moisturised as well.
Weleda say :
“From the age of 40 we benefit most from the positive properties of the pomegranate. At this life stage….as we grow older our skin changes – its vitality diminishes, the regeneration processes slow down and hardening tendencies can no longer be automatically counter-balanced overnight.
Pomegranate mediates between the young and mature opposites, allowing them to flow into one another, developing a framework for dynamic and regenerative effects on the individual. So the pomegranate’s seed oil stabilises and relaxes the skin in times of transition, bringing inner and outer beauty into harmony and encouraging us to look towards the future with serenity.”

~~~&&&~~~ MY EXPERIENCE ~~~&&&~~~~
I am bit older than the age range this product is aimed at but I have had a number of these small sample tubes over the years and even bought couple of the full sized ones. I tend to go for the Evening primrose range now though as that range is for the more mature lady which sadly is the age range I fit into.
I do love the smell of this product, which comes from the essential oils in the cream which Weleda describe in this way :
“ “The natural fragrance has been designed to hit a sophisticated note, subtly sensual, feminine and warming. Essential oil of davana lends an exotic, oriental character together with mellow base notes of sandal wood and neroli”.
It is fresh and uplifting yet also really exotic. It is so great that Weleda have made a lovely scent from this, a light EDT which I wear frequently these days.
The cream is a creamy colour and feel quite light on application. It soaks in very fast n leaves my skin feeling matt and not greasy at all at the same time it feels well nourished.
I always apply my day cream after cleaning, toning and applying a good quality natural serum. I eave ths to soak in before applying any make up if I choose to wear any that day.
According to Weleda this day cream has been created to:
Reduces wrinkles and tautens.
2) Protects from oxidative stress.
3) Improves elasticity and resilience
I have found it does a great job of making my skin feel nourished and it never feels tight or sensitive and itchy when using this which some products do seem to do. We are lucky in that the area we live is not too heavily polluted with traffic fumes or industrial pollution bt I hope this is helping fight all the nsties in the environmant for me with its antioxidants.
My skin feels tauter and looks fresher but the lines and wrinkles are still there though they don’t seem to look any worse!
I love that it smells so fresh and uplifting as it cheers em up each morning when I apply this.
Apart from the lovely pomegranate oil this is carefully blended with golden millet, argan and macadamia oils which create this lovely light cream to nourishes and regenerate the skin.
This is all natural as I have mentioned but it is also suitable for vegans as all ingredients are plant based. This product has not been tested on animals and has no petrochemicals or GM ingredients and has no filler ingredients or parabens either.
Even though Weleda use all natural ingredients they are quite powerful and they suggest that you do a test on a small area for a few days when using something new. I have not had any issues with any of their products and I have skin that is prone to allergies and eczema but best be on the safe side.
~~~&&&~~~ RECOMMENDD? ~~~&&&~~~
I have found this an excellent day cream and would certainly recommend it to the 40s plus age range. For those in the menopausal age range then the Evening Primrose might be more suitable. There are other ranges for the younger ladies ( and men) too so check out their website.
