Skincare Sunday - Weleda Calendula Intensive Skin Recovery Cream Review

My skin is dry and sensitive - living in a dry climate always makes my skin feel worse! I also suffer from eczema and keratosis pilaris and I find that both are worse in the Winter and Spring time. I'm always looking for a great cream that can specifically help my skin concerns!

This cream is so thick - it is amazing! It is clearly not a full body moisturizer, but this is amazing to target your problem areas! Think dry skin patches - knees, elbows, heels, etc and skin issues such as mine (eczema, etc.) Remember, this is an intensive cream so a little goes a long way when you're applying it!

I have been using this often on my upper arms (where I usually get my eczema and kp) and any dry rough patches on my body. This really moisturizers deep down and helps clear any dry skin. It also targets the redness and reduces red bumps and spots! I'm really impressed! Also a bonus, this is really good on stretch marks (trust me, 4 weeks post-baby this has been my go-to for the past few weeks! If you have any of these skin concerns, this would be worth checking out!
