Advantages: Great hydration, really nice fragrance and results are visible after the first application…!
Disadvantages: None not even the price…
As you already know I’m a huge fan of this brand and until now I’ve never been deluded by their products… For quite a while I was searching for a good hydrating cream for day usage especially during the cold season and finally I must admit that I’ve found the good one…
About Product & Features
All the products from Iris range are featured with Iris rhizome extracts, used mainly to support the natural self-regulating properties of the skin ensuring the optimal oil and moisture balance and keeping the skin in the same time really hydrated.
They also precise that Iris range brings extra moisture for skin up to the age of 30, but it can be used at any age as hydration is really needed even to fight wrinkles or against any other external aggressions (like windy days, cold season, pollution…).
This cream is an intensive care for daily use, has a rich texture and is suitable for dry skin all year long and/or normal skin in winter season. It provides intensive hydration, whilst helping to regulate the skin’s natural balance.

As I’ve told you my skin really needs hydration and this cream is the first one that brings to my skin all it needs… I was afraid when I bought this cream that it will be a little too heavy for my skin, but used and applied with the right technique this cream is really wonderful. To give you an example, I’m also using Dr Hauschka products but none of their creams is capable to hydrate so well my skin and for all day long, even in a windy and cold winter day… I’m impressed and amazed in the same time, how good this cream is for people like me who really need a lot of hydration… The fragrance is good, I mean not so perfumed, just the right amount and it gives you a real pleasant felling just after applying it… You feel your skin really hydrated, pampered and very soft and smooth.
None, not even the price… as it’s quite affordable for 30 ml it costs around 10 €.
How to use
Apply to cleansed skin in the morning and gently massage into the face, neck and decolletage. Use only as much as the skin can readily absorb. For very dry skin you can also use Weleda Iris Hydrating Facial Masque for an intensive moisture boost. Also for dry skin, caused by seasonal or hormonal changes or changes in the weather, you can use Weleda Iris Hydrating Day Cream in combination with Weleda Iris Hydrating Facial Lotion.
I have a quite different technique for applying this cream… In fact I’m using a floral water (Orange or Rose) that I’m spraying before on the skin. When the skin is still wet I’m using a little amount of this cream that I warm up for some seconds in my palms and gently applying all over my face… The mixture of the two products (floral water and cream) gives a light emulsion that really penetrates into the skin in some seconds, leaving the skin fresh, hydrated and with a nice velvet veil.
Finally after long searches I’ve found the right hydrating cream for the cold season… Great fragrance, nice feeling on my skin and really hydrating, in fact it has all I need in a 30ml tube… The price is really affordable and you can find it in quite any beauty store… I intend to buy the Night Cream and also the Mask from the same range as those two products are complementary with this cream and really make a complete routine to hydrate the skin all over the year. Dehydration marks and wrinkles on my face are completely gone and my skin is smoother with a velvet look.
Don’t search anymore a solution to hydrate your skin, as this cream is all you need to solve your problem out…!
Summary: Best cream I’ve ever tried and results are visible after the first application… Don’t think twice!
