January Essentials – Weleda Wild Rose Body Oil

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 18 - 2010

Love it or hate it, Rose-scented products tend to polarise opinion… I’m in the love-it camp, I find it a comforting smell in a Granny kinda way.

I’m talking Granny in a cool Lily of the Valley sense.  NOT Granny in a mint imperials wrapped in tissue discovered in the bottom of a musty-smelling handbag sense.  I hope we’re clear on that?

Weleda Wild Rose Body Oil promises to protect skin from free-radicals whilst moisturising and promoting inner balance and harmony.

Inner balance? Harmony? Please excuse my whilst I attempt to mainline about 5 litres of the stuff directly into my veins… I’m on the final day of my inlaws visit.  I love them really… but… well, yano…

Oils are my thang, I’m a lazy git when it comes to body moisturising… and oils just seem easier to me than creams.  I apply them after turning off the shower taps whilst my skin is still damp.

Doing it this way, means I can be quick and messy and get the chore over with.  I also like to screw with Mr. L and leave an oily residue in the bath.  It’s like banana skins x700 billion.  *claps hands with glee*

I also find them to be great value for money.  Body Oils are generally more expensive than creams and lotions, but a little goes a very long way and a single bottle will easily last me 6 months of daily use.

I especially like the sound of this one ‘cos you can slather it on your face too… god I’m such a sloth.  I’m sussing myself out as I type this…  I want an all-over oil that I can apply in about 5 secs flat from top to toe without moving from the warmth of the bathroom don’t I?  Well.. step forward Weleda!

And this… ladies and um ladies, is why I’m announcing Weleda Wild Rose Body Oil a bonafide January Essential (for lazy flakey-skinned bitches).

Weleda Wild Rose Body Oil is available from LoveLula.com and priced at £18.95 for 100ml

Are you a body oil fan?

    Uggh, I’m definitely not a body oil fan! And the granny element mentioned to it doesn’t help either! I’m sorry owner of Weleda Wild Rose Body Oil, but I won’t be buying or considering you for winter (or should I say next winter 😛 ).

    I love rose fragrance and I have to admit that I love body oils too I find they actually sink into your skin really quickly – I used the weleda rose mask a while ago too and that waqs really nice x

    I love rose smell, keeping in mind my rose and glycerine face wash. It smells divine. Would I try body oil?? Hmph….. only if I am given them for free 😀

    I like body oils, and I love anything rose scented, but nearly £20 is much too expensive for me. I’ll stick to baby oil! x

  5. Deborah says:

    I’m a huge fan of body oils although I tend to only use them in the Summer (stick to richer and thicker body butters throughout the Winter months) and ONLY before bed as I tend to find the oil transfers easily to clothes – not a good look when you’re rushing out the door to get to work.

  6. Im not much of a body oil fan…I tend to feel like I am going to slip around with it on! lol But the scent sounds pretty…maybe I will keep a look out :)

    I’m not a body oil fan but that’s probably only because I don’t quite know that best way to use them. I enjoyed reading your thoughts on this. I might try this one day. Oh, but I’m in the love camp though for rose-scented products. 😀

    Yep, I like body oils, Neutrogena do a gorgeous-smelling one. I don’t find they last any longer than a lotion for me though- maybe i’m too liberal?! I’m not overly keen on rose-scented stuff, i’m a granny-girl of the lavender persuasion.
