Weleda Announces The Launch Of Its New Skin Food Experience

How to deal with the dry skin in the Winter? It is always the thing I have to study about. I love Weleda, it makes my skin smooth and comfortable in the dry weather. No itchy anymore. Weleda, the European skincare brand, announced that it is expanding its cult-favorite Skin Food Original Ultra-Rich Cream to include three new formulas.

For almost a century, Weleda‘s Skin Food has been feeding our bodies with plant extracts that work in rhythm with the skin to allow one’s inner beauty to shine through. The ultra-rich, multipurpose formula derived from farms that follow sustainable principles delivers soft, supple, deeply hydrated skin. Skin Food’s nourishing ingredients satisfy skin with nutrients that help unlock a healthy-looking glow. Skin Food has developed a cult following for its plant-rich formulation becoming a must-have item in makeup artist’s kits and celebrity homes alike.

The new Skin Food Experience, which includes a product for lips, a body butter and a lighter version of the original, will feature formulas created to help nourish and soothe the skin. Comprised of nutrient-rich lead plants, including rosemary, chamomile, pansy and calendula, the new blends are rooted in different base formulas of sunflower seed oil, lanolin, beeswax, and Shea Butter.

We are thrilled to bring all the benefits of Skin Food Original to more usage occasions so that fans and new consumers alike can enjoy a total Skin Food experience from head-to-toe.”

The new Skin Food Experience formulas include:

Skin Food Light Nourishing Cream: A lighter version of the classic original, the cream formula quickly melts into skin without leaving behind a greasy residue.

New Beauty Plan For The New Year of 2019

Let us try some new beauty products in the new year. This article is perfect for the one who love exploring the new stuffs like me. Okay, Let me tell you what I have found recently and I love them!

First, I want you to know this lovely eye stamp – CLEOPATRA CAT EYE STAMP. Maybe it sounds very new to you, but it is an amazing new product you should get to know. It will help you save a lot of time to have high quality eyeliners.


  •  ACADEMY AWARD WINNING MAKEUP ARTISTS, CELEBRITIES, and BEAUTY BLOGGERS FAVORITE EYELINER STAMP! – THE VERDICT IS IN!! TOP MAGAZINES and ENTERTAINMENT TV NEWS SHOWS like E! News, Entertainment Tonight, Buzzfeed, OK!, InTouch, US Weekly, Star Magazine and many more have named The Cleopatra Cat Eye Stamp one of the hottest items around.
  • DON’T TRUST CHEAPER VERSIONS that may be made with toxic chemicals or be harmful to your eyes. Do your research before choosing. Cleopatra Cat Eye Stamp is dermatologist formulated, tested, and approved. As always it is CRUELTY FREE!
  • STAMP AND EYELINER – Cleopatra Cat Eye Stamp has a precision stamp on one end to create perfect winged eyeliner in under 60 seconds. It also has a built in fine tip point eyeliner on the other.
  • THE LIQUID IS IN THE PEN – You don’t need to buy additional items or brushes. The Luxurious, long lasting richly pigmented eyeliner is already inside. WATERPROOF and SMUDGEPROOF. Save time, save space, and save MONEY.

There are only three steps you can totally follow!

1. Stamp the wing on the desired position at the corner of your eye.

2. Draw the lash line with the fine tip and connect it to the wing.

3. Shape and extend your wing if desired.

There are three types that you can choose from, depending on your style and taste. I love the combo, because I change my style sometime, and I love my makeup can perfect match with my outfits.

I also recommend a great Sun Protector. Korean cosmetics are always one of my favorites. I do Korean facial masques every two days. I also keep using a lot of Korean sunscreens. IOPE is a well-known brand, and their sun protector is amazing.

IOPE UV Defense Sun Protector SPF 50+ ($32; This lightweight sun protector strengthens the skin barrier while providing protection against harmful UV rays. Its grease-free formula absorbs into the skin quickly, controls shine, & moisturizes skin.

  • “Light as a feather” texture

The lightweight texture gets absorbed without a sticky finish and protects the skin from UV rays.

  • Protects skin from UV rays and fine dust

The Micro-Filter System™ that protects skin from fine dust also protects from UV rays and harmful environments to help keep the skin in its healthiest state.

  • Treatment for signs of aging from UV rays

The V.D. Booster treats signs of aging from UV rays while strengthening the skin’s barrier to assist the development of even healthier skin.

Another product I would love to introduce is a overnight masque. As we all know how Vital C helps our skin to be glowing and brighter. Image Skincare’s this product, a Vital C hydrating overnight masque can work very well on your skin overnight to make a better and moisture skin the next morning.

IMAGE Skincare VITAL C hydrating overnight masque ($55; This overnight treatment is the perfect way to keep your skin hydrated and moisturized after some wind burn. The gel-texture delivers water to the skin and locks in vital nutrients while you sleep, helping to smooth skin and diminish wrinkles. Wake up feeling hydrated and glowing.  This overnight treatment has a triple mineral complex that energizes the skin for a revitalized look. The gel-texture delivers water to the skin and locks in vital nutrients while you sleep. Blue-green algae extract, a natural retinoid alternative, helps to smooth skin and diminish wrinkles. Hematite and malachite provide unique mineral radiance for stressed skin. Wake up with intensely hydrated, glowing skin.

Simply put, IMAGE Skincare knows skin.IMAGE Skincare’s multi-functional products contain the highest levels of active ingredients and are loved—and used—by skincare professionals. IMAGE Skincare clinical director, Dr. Marc Ronert, develops the proprietary formulations to ensure that each one delivers superior effectiveness and real results.
