Weleda Pomegranate Hand Cream: Hands-Down Winner

How is it I’ve never checked out Weleda? Well, I don’t know. I should have because I’m quite impressed with the first product I’ve purchased from the brand—the Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Hand Cream. In fact, I consider it on par with some of the best non-natural hand creams I’ve tried. And though I don’t really like metallic tubes because of how they warp after awhile, I am somehow very attracted to the packaging of this one. The gorgeous red color must have won my heart hands down!

Reputed brand from Germany
Anyway, it was only when I looked up Weleda’s website that I realized they’re a big brand from Germany which manufactures over 2500 pharmaceutical products, 120 natural cosmetics and 10 dietary products worldwide. I had no idea! I mean, I’ve seen some of their products around but never thought much about them. It seems the company even has their plant-based raw materials where 77 percent are cultivated in controlled organic and biodynamic environments. So the brand is a clear leader in the natural category. In fact, all Weleda’s products are made from pure natural substances and artificial preservatives are never used.

Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Hand Cream

Weleda-Pomegranate Regenerating Hand Cream

Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Hand Cream 50ml reviewed by Sesame on .

I really love this Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Hand Cream. The cream is not too thick but it’s not light either. It is also not greasy. Application is a breeze as the cream melts into the skin very quickly without leaving any oily or sticky stains. My hand felt moisturized, smooth and supple with every usage. My cuticles also look well nourished and neat. In addition, the smell is very pleasant with a hint of tangy citrus edge but I reckon some of you may find it too strong. Nonetheless, this hand cream has garnered 4.2 out of 5 rating from 106 reviewers at iHerb and is clearly quite a winner with many smooth hands.

Affordable and premium quality
I haven’t checked the Singapore outlets that stock Weleda products to know if this is available here but the 50ml tube retails for US$9.60 at iHerb. I find the price very reasonable for the quality it provides. If you’re in the market for a hand cream to use in the day, I highly recommend this. If you’ve the habit of getting hand creams as gifts, this certainly makes a very appealing one based on the premium quality, mostly natural ingredients and affordable price. I think the red packaging makes this product look very upmarket and more expensive than it really is. It’s been a long time since I’ve rated a product so well and I would certainly be getting more of this item as X’mas presents!

    Some of Weleda products are just amazing. I used this hand cream for awhile, and although I found it to be good, I also find it to be too greasy for me, as if the cream doesn’t get absorb into the skin too well. Maybe it just have a different effect on different people. I don’t like the tin tube too, but I have to say I love the smell of it ?

    I used to get Weleda’s stuffs from Brown Rice Paradise. I’m not sure if they are still carrying this brand. I bought Nivea Lip Butter in a tin recently. I thought of a better idea using it instead of on my lips, I used it on my feet, my heels & calluses. I t works pretty well on my feet, heels & cuticles but I don’t think it helps much with my calluses though.

    I know this is totally irrelevant to the post, but I had a question regarding exfoliators/scrubs. Which brand would you most recommend? I have milia-prone skin.

    Would the honey/cinnamon mask work?

    Thank you.

  5. esther says:

    I read your post on Sweetsation Therapy Berry Mask and was thinking of ordering it. Does it exfoliate well? And would you recommend something else?

  6. Pollya says:

    Yes, Weleda has been a leader in the natural category for quite some time. Their products in S’pore are definitely over-priced! So best to get them from iHerb. I also dislike their metal tube concept – hard to squeeze out the last bits, don’t really know why they use this. I think their baby products are also quite popular.

  7. Sesame says:

    No idea…but I’m keen to try more of their body products.

  8. Sesame says:

    The texture is just right for me…perhaps my skin is drier than yours. And yes, love the smell too!

  9. Sesame says:

    I see them at Nature’s Farm if I remember correctly.

  10. Sesame says:

    Honey and cinnamon is better as an acne spot treatment. Are you able to get hold of Konjac sponge where you’re based? Find that it works best and is rather gentle. Otherwise, use yogurt with oatmeal flour or almond flour.

    The Sweetsation one is not bad. You can try using a clay mask with yogurt too.

  11. Sesame says:

    I haven’t checked their products here…don’t know why. Perhaps those I saw were not so interesting to me.

  12. Carol-Lynne says:

    This is also by far my favourite hand cream!! Both the smell and texture is just DIVINE ? I have also tried their rose body oil, which is pretty good too~

  13. Sesame says:

    Glad it’s your favorite too! Their rose body oil is nice? Wow, I like rose…probably will give it a try sometime. ?

  14. kahling says:

    Their body oils are my favorite, the pomegranate, rose and lavender. Definitely cheaper than Marie Veronique Organics.

  15. Sesame says:

    Alrighty. Shall order some of them soon. ?

  16. Olivia says:

    I like their baby shampoo and body wash in calendula. It’s very gentle and doesn’t foam much, and the smell is quite comforting. Their products can be found locally at Four Season’s Organic Market. I tried a couple of their toothpastes, but I didn’t quite take to the flavour, one was ratanhia flavoured and I think the other one was calendula.

  17. Sesame says:

    Thanks Olivia for the recommendation. I wanted to order their toothpaste but decided against it. Just ordered their body oil though.
