Cooler weather and you know dry skin is right there with it. Naturally then, I’d be on the lookout for new skincare products that might help during this time of the year. Lo and behold, I came across this sample for the Weleda Citrus Hydrating Body Lotion. The smell of citrus is always enticing and refreshing and it claimed to be hydrating so I couldn’t resist and decided to give it a try.
Let’s just say I’m happy I did.

Product Review: Weleda Citrus Hydrating Body Lotion
The Weleda Citrus Hydrating Body Lotion does not disappoint. In fact, it actually makes me happy. The moment I opened that sample package, I was greeted with an incredibly citrus fragrance that actually put a smile on my face.
I wasn’t sure how well the Weleda Citrus Hydrating Body Lotion would work on my skin given that it seemed so light.
Boy, was I wrong. It quickly absorbed into my skin without any greasy residue. My skin felt nourished and soft. The light citrus scent was very pleasant and honestly, I was happy.
Over the past few days, I’ve been using the Weleda Citrus Hydrating Body Lotion continuously and I have to say, my hands look and feel really good. No cracks, no dry red patches, no irritations. It’s interesting because the Weleda Citrus Hydrating Body Lotion really is quite light and yet it packs a seriously powerful punch.
a) I need to get myself a full size bottle of the Weleda Citrus Hydrating Body Lotion.
b) If you see it, you should pick up a bottle to try as well (unless of course, you don’t like the smell of citrus fruits in which case you might want to try one of their other goodies)
Yep, that pretty much sums it all up. When you’re good, you’re good!
