I'm 44 and definitely have to ask for professional advice, since I'm a bit dissoriented, so many new ingredients on the market.
But I'd like to ask (since this forum is excellent) if Weleda's facial almond oil is good as day moisturizer (because it doesn't have SPF or other antiage popular ingredients I can see on it) using it alone?
It has important antiage effects or has to be used as a complement of an antiage cream?

Thanks.

Natalie.

I use Pomegranate and Rosehip Oil as a daily moisturiser. I can't see any reason why Almond Oil wouldn't be fine to use (although I'm not familiar with the Weleda product). However, after the oil has been massaged in you should be applying a physical sunscreen.

after i see the ingredient, i think you can use it as a moisturizer daytime, but need strenthen the anti-oxidation and off course a sun protection.

Hi Keliu,

Just curious: for your pomegranate and rosehip oil moisturizer, about what fraction is pomegranate and what fraction is rosehip oil?

Thanks so much! Smile

I actually apply them separately, one after the other - 3 drops each! I put some oil soluble Vitamin C into the Pomegranate.

I sometimes feel lost towards so many new skincare products too!
So people's opinions are very important for me to motivate me to try new things!

Doctors say and I also follow this rule: that the less ingredient (within reason) the better. I believe in layering and applying sunblock separately.
