Review – Weleda Iris Hydrating Day Cream (May GlossyBox)

I’d never heard of this brand before receiving the cream in my May GlossyBox and I wasn’t even sure which beauty cream I had received until I looked it up on the GlossyBox website as well as translating the German on the box. After finding that it was the hydrating day cream I thought it was definitely worth a try since I have a few patches of dry skin on my face so I wanted to see just how hydrating the cream really was. On first opening the product I didn’t like the foil that was sealing the tube as it was too sharp and I know this doesn’t sound like a lot but when the foil is sharp enough to cut you it needs to be mentioned. I’ve listed the pros and the cons of the products below:


  • Sinks easily into skin once applied
  • Leaves skin feeling soft
  • Hydrates almost straight away


  • Smell is slightly off -putting
  • Unappealingyellowy colour
  • Skin needs to be exfoliated before applying


Not a bad product but slightly too heavy for summer,my skin feels a little to clogged and in warm weather I think its especially important for your skin to be able to breathe.
