I’m a busy mom and blogger, and my self-care frequently takes a back seat to everything else. I’m guilty of staying up late far too often, not eating regularly (and when I do, eating junk), and not taking proper care of my skin. I’m so tired at night that often I just wash my face, brush my teeth, and fall into bed. So when Weleda sent me their brand new Evening Primrose Age Revitalizing line to try for myself, I took it as a prompt that I need to start taking better care of my skin and of myself overall.
A little bit about this unique plant: “Evening primrose is named for its flowers that open in the evening and close before dawn. Rich in essential fatty acids, evening primrose oil is ideal for dry, mature skin. The oil supports the skin’s metabolism, improves its barrier properties, promotes active cell renewal, and protects skin from moisture loss.”
Honestly, the kids keep me so busy that night time is really the best time for working, and I’ve got so many projects going on right now that I haven’t made much progress with going to bed earlier. But I am doing better at avoiding late night snacks (more on that later), and I’ve done a pretty good job at disciplining myself to use these Weleda evening primrose skin care products on a regular basis.
For the last three weeks, I’ve been using the Day Cream (almost) every morning under my make up, and the Night Cream and Eye and Lip Cream at night. I’ve used the Body Wash and then a little Body Oil after my shower. After those three weeks, I’ve noticed my skin definitely feels softer, smoother, and more hydrated. I haven’t noticed a big reduction in fine lines, but to be fair I don’t really have many to begin with. At this point, I still see my skin care regime as more prevention than treatment.
My fave product is the Hand Cream. The tube stays in my bag so I always have it handy. (Ha ha, see what I did there?) I love how quickly it absorbs into my skin and how light and non-greasy it feels. Just a minute or two after applying, I can use my phone without leaving smears or greasy fingerprints on the screen.
