Weleda Almond Soothing Cleansing Lotion

For me, both my favourite and least favourite part of my skincare routine is cleansing. Favourite because taking off makeup, grime, sweat and whatever else of the day is so.. invigorating, I love feeling clean and I don't know about you but wearing makeup for 12 hours isn't the greatest feeling by the end of the day. I think of cleansing as washing my stress away for the day and prepping myself for an evening of relaxing and eventually sleep. 
It's also my least favourite because believe it or not I'm quite the lazy bones and sometimes I really have to gear myself up to actually get up and go and wash my face or get in the shower or whatever, it just seems like sooo much effort at the time, even though I know I'll feel so much better when it's over.

One of my favourite cleansers that I don't mention enough has to be the Weleda Almond Soothing Cleansing Lotion. It's sort of crept up on me as a favourite and as you can see my tube is well loved and on its way to being all used up. I don't actually remember when I bought this as I've had it for so long now (not that long) I save it for travelling usually as it's ease of use and packaging make it ideal. 
It's one of those products that I really look forward to using, it smells great (like almonds and cake), feels greats and makes my skin look great. The formula is so simple, with as few ingredients as possible making it perfect for sensitive skin like mine. It's a really light textured cream that massages into skin easily to take away makeup and anything else, leaving skin super soft and calm. Like I said I usually save this for travelling as it's the only cleanser I need and I can use it morning and twice in the evening without issue. It doesn't leave any residue on the skin at all and is so light you can wash it away simply by splashing your face with water.

I definitely think everyone needs a tube of this stuff in the bathroom for emergencies, delicate skin days and lazy cleansing routines. I'm off to order a backup riiiight now... ;)


Water (Aqua), Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Alcohol, Prunus Domestica Seed Oil, Xanthan Gum, Lactic Acid


  1. This sounds really lovely, I really like the Weleda products and they're usually really reasonably priced! xx

  2. Completely agree with you! I've gone through two or three tubes of this and it's what I reach for if my skin starts acting up. This reminds me, I should probably restock :)

  3. Where do you get your nice plates from?! I need them! Love the sound of this too, almond & cake? yum! xx

  4. This sounds so, so nice. My skin has been very sensitive lately and I've realized that I don't have any sensitive type cleansers.

  5. I love this and have used four at least five years, nice simple and does the job! :) Xx

  6. You got me at almond and cake! I've been wanting to try skin care from Weleda, but haven't seen much reviews for the almond range so far. Will have to pick this up for fall/winter. :D

  7. I'll have to try it sometime! xx

  8. I love anything almond scented so I am sure I'll just love this. Sounds like a lovely product too, and I feel your pain with love/hate cleansing routine!

  9. Definitely want to try this now! Lovely post as always! x

  10. I've never really thought of Weleda for cleansers and the like... Sounds like something I would use. You can beat a simple, no fuss cleanser to rely on when you don't want to use one that's more targeted to a specific skincare concern xx

  11. I'm a bit of a sucker for anything almond scented and Weleda products are lovely from what I've tried so far! xo
