Weleda Iris Day & Night Creams- Husband Approved & $10 Vitacost credit

Whenever we go camping, it always takes it's toll on our skin. I don't have too hard a time getting back to normal, but The Husband generally refuses to actually DO anything to repair his skin until he's all flaky and scaly and whiny and ready to accept my help. He tried using his beloved aloe vera gel, but I finally convinced him that the gel alone just wasn't going to do the trick and to trust me.

My regular readers or You Tube viewers know that I am a huge Weleda fan. Weleda, after the Celtic goddess of wisdom and healing, has a really interesting history, which you can read about HERE

I'd previously used the Iris day and night lotions and thought they'd be just right for him. The only scent is a light herbal scent that dissipates quickly. They are also fast absorbing. They're both light lotions that hydrate beautifully without being too thick, greasy or heavy. He's always concerned that using an actual moisturizer will be too much for his oily skin, despite my protestations to the contrary, so I knew that the lightness of this would soothe his dry itchy skin without making him feel all oily. This was the perfect balance for him! He used the pair for a few days and was good as new! What really blew MY mind though? He didn't give me back the tubes when he got his skin back to normal. Nope. He kept them and now carries them around in his big backpack that he carries everywhere. At night I see him applying the Iris night cream before bed. Maybe I'll get him to take care of his skin on a regular basis yet! Never thought I'd see the day, but apparently Weleda is good enough to turn my hubby into a metrosexual.... 

If you'd like to try these out, you can get $10 off your first purchase at Vitacost THROUGH THIS LINK so they'd be like practically nuthin since their prices are vastly discounted off of the normal retail to begin with. If I remember correctly they charge almost nothing for shipping.
