Weleda Pomegranate body oil review

   

    When I was thinking about the items to include in my products I would repurchase collaboration I realised that I had never reviewed this product despite it being my single most repurchased product of all time, I have used probably about 8 of these gorgeous bottles at least over the last couple of years. I have a few Weleda products that are staples in my routine and for good reason they are a great brand, the ethics of the company are superb and their focus on sustainable sourcing and bio dynamic farming means the products are great for the environment too.

    Since starting this natural beauty journey I have become a total oil convert and I feel strongly that they are something that everyone should include in their routine. They make a big difference to skin and unlike water based products need very little in terms of preservatives.

    I will say that the main reason for buying this again and again aside from how wonderfully nourishing this is, is because it is a pleasure to use. I am someone who needs to enjoy my products to ensure that I apply them, otherwise even the most effective of products will sit in a drawer unloved.

    The smell of this (like the Weleda Pomegranate creamy body wash that I reviewed here) is just so wonderfully addictive. It's very fruity but with a hint of spice, as Weleda is widely available and I strongly suggest you have a smell of this in person as I really can't do it justice on a blog post. As you would expect from a Weleda product the scent is all natural from essential oils.

    The oil itself is what I would describe as quite rich so it is best applied on to wet skin after a bath or a shower. It is wonderfully moisturising thanks to the lovely blend of natural oils including jojoba, sesame and of course the pomegranate seed oil. I like to use it all over my body and I really notice a difference in the condition of my skin since using it.

Ingredients:
INCI: Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ Oil, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Panicum Miliaceum (Millet) Seed Extract, Fragance (parfum)*, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Seed Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Petal Extract, Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil Unsaponifiables, Limonene*, Linalool*, Citronellol*, Geraniol*, Citral*, Eugenol*, Coumarin*, Farnesol. *From natural essential oils.

    It's described as regenerating and it is great for any type of skin imperfection such as scars, stretch marks keratosis pilaris etc... It's one of those products that I always have in my stash and would never want to be with out it now.

    I have tried all the Weleda body oils and they are all gorgeously scented, this however is my favourite and the one I come back to again and again. They are also available in Citrus, Sea Buckthorn and Wild Rose.

    You can find this product on the Weleda Website it retails at £21.95 for 100 mls, you can also buy trial sizes of the many Weleda products which is great so that you can decide whether you want to invest in the full size.
 
    Do you like body oils? Did you try this one, what did you think?

  1. This sounds amazing, the body wash is still on my to buy list from your review of it, i really must get some Weleda into my life!
    I've got the big glass bottle of Pai's Royal Jasmine & May Chang body oil, its gorgeous but expensive and I'm always terrified I'll drop it!
    I didn't realise Weleda did travel sized products - even less of an excuise not to get some now lol! xx

    1. The pomegranate range from Weleda is one of my favourites, at the moment they are doing free delivery and free samples too, so the perfect time to go and take a look :) x

  3. Hi Ana,

    Wonderful review, really like the sound of this. I tend to use body oils on my hands and neck mainly as being a guy and having body hair, oils don't seem to absorb as well. I do find when I get my arms waxed products absorb much better.

    I have used the Weleda Wild Rose Body oil, have you tried that one and if so how does it compare to this one?

    The best body oil I've tried is the Tata Harper body oil, it was very expensive at £72 but it lasted forever and it was very seductive in scent.

    I really want to get the May Lindstrom 'The Good Stuff' as it apparently smells heavenly and contains mica to give you a beautiful sheen, but it is £85!! http://www.beingcontent.com/body--bath/moisturise/oil/the-good-stuff--radiance-oil-.htm would you ever be tempted to buy that one?

    1. I have tried all the Weleda oils for me this the best closely followed by the sea buckthorn, I liked the rose but not as much as this one. I would try the Tata Harper or the May Linstrom as a special treat, definitely couldn't justify doing it very often though ;) xxx

  4. I'm hugely into body oils at the moment. Love the Weleda Lavender one and currently enjoying a Bloom remedies one. The London Oil Co do a nice one with lemongrass which is uplifting in the morning x

  5. Hi there, I was really drawn to this as I use oils all the time, I don't use creams at all any longer. But I wondered if you feel a bit cheated by the title of this product, it makes a big deal out of the pomegranate oil in there when in fact it's more of a jojoba/sesame/sunflower mix. I know jojoba's great for the skin, but sesame and sunflower are both cheap as chips - the pomegranate is actually less in volume than the perfume according to the ingredients. That seems a bit off to me.

    1. Hi thanks for taking the time to comment, I do see your point however at this pricepoint most oils would be a mixture like this one, If you want a higher concentration of more expensive oils it definitely comes at a price. As for the fragrance the essential oils also have their own skin care benefits too. I have had good results with the product and the mixture of oils seems to suit my skin, there is lot's of choice available on the market if this one doesn't suit you. You can also make your own blends which is always a lovely thing to do as well :)

    2. Thanks for the reply Ana.
      I get what you're saying and yes, I do mix up oils myself for this very reason. I think I was just expecting the product to be mainly made of the ingredient they trumpet on the label and wondered what your thoughts were. It won't stop me trying the oil, you've made it sound really attractive, but at £21 I wouldn't exactly call this a cheap option.

    3. Weleda do great offers as do other sites that offer their products, if you shop around there is always a way to get the products you want for less, I usually do! :)
