Must-Have: Weleda Wild Rose Smoothing Facial Capsules

2014 June 3


I believe in beauty rituals that nourish the skin and the senses.

Something that feels good and smells good is just as important to me as something that makes me look good because when I find the time to pamper and indulge in my health and my body, I want it to be worth it.

I grew up in a household where almost all of my parents’ beauty products were from trips back and forth to Europe – German bath soaps, French facial moisturizers – it wasn’t a sign of luxury for us, it was simply what they knew best and trusted the most so they stocked up on their favorites when they ventured back over the Atlantic for business or pleasure. Well now we can happily stock up on many of the same beloved brands State-side.

And trust me, they are worth it.

Weleda is a well-known European beauty brand with deep roots in wellness, nourishment and natural skincare. Their Wild Rose smoothing facial capsules are little individual doses of 100% natural (and 90% organic) rosehip seed oil made from fair-traded flowers grown in Turkey that is proven to soften fine lines, improve elasticity and restore vitality. Each capsule (there are 30 in the small jar) opens with an easy twist and offers just enough of the oil to pat gently over your entire face. The rose scent is sweet but not over-powering and the ritual is one that is kind to your skin and your soul. I have been using them 2-3 times per week at night after I cleanse my skin and my skin is left feeling smooth, dewy and glowing. Like I just walked through a beautiful, blooming rose garden…in my mind.

I have a feeling they will be particularly refreshing as summer kicks into gear and your skin gets sensitive from days in the sun and is thirsty for a little more love and care. And Weleda must agree because until June 30, they are available at for 20% off with the code ROSE.
