Weleda Wild Rose Smoothing Facial Capsules

When Weleda contacted me to try their Wild Rose Smoothing Facial Capsules, one of the most loved product in Weleda's spas in Paris, I have to admit that I was reluctant to try it because I was afraid it wouldn't suit my acne prone skin. I decided to give it a try anyway because I heard good things about rosehip seed oil, which is renowned for its restorative and nourishing properties, and is rich in provitamin A and essential fatty acids. These revitalizing capsules are 100% certified natural and 90% organic.

I used 1 capsule every other day during 2 weeks and noticed that my skin is definitely more soft and supple! I never broke out from the capsules, even though I have acne-prone skin type.

I was expecting something very oily from this, so I'm not surprised at all that it is, but I did find that one capsule was too much for me. I only use it at night because it's very oily and take a long time to absorb in the skin. The rose smell is a little heavy for my taste, but my skin didn't react to it.

I think it's a good facial oil to revitalize the skin. It's wonderful in wintertime, when your skin needs a little help! If you are on the look out for a good facial oil that is made of natural ingredients, then I would recommend these Wild Rose capsules. I do think that it's too pricey, but I guess it's the price to pay when you want organic and natural skincare.

The Weleda Wild Rose Smoothing Facial Capsules retail for $40 CDN for 30 capsules.

  1. hm, they say if a scent doesn't appeal to you in a skincare product, then the product isn't suitable for your skin. I have oily combo too and all rose products (usually great for fry skin) don't work for me. :(

    1. Oh really?! It's not that the scent doesn't appeal to me, I like rose scented products (not all of them though), but I would prefer if this one was slightly less heavy scented.
