Q: Is this specifically for use on the body only? Is it okay to use it as a night cream?
A: Skin Food Original and Skin Food Light are safe and effective moisturizers for facial skin and can even provide a base under make-up, or be applied on top as a highlighter. As the name suggests, Skin Food Light is a lighter version of Skin Food Original. Depending on your skin type and usage occasion, you can choose between Skin Food Original (nourishes dry to very dry skin) and Skin Food Light (nourishes dry skin, quickly absorbed and ideal for on the go or during warm weather conditions). Skin Food Original can even be used as a thick and nourishing moisturizer or as an overnight or 10-minute mask.submitted byWeleda Customer Service - 3 years agoBrand expert
A: I find it to be quite greasy so I, as an oily-combo skin person, would not be able to wear it during the day. However, it's the most amazing night cream and eye cream I've ever used. If you have tried heavy occlusive creams and still felt "dehydrated" then this is for you! A little goes a long way. While I see they answered and said it gets absorbed quickly, I do not have that experience, which is actually why I like this product so much. Good luck!submitted byMo - 3 years ago
Q: How is this product sealed upon purchase? Tube sealed?
A: Most tamper evident packaging is used for ingestibles or instances when it's difficult to tell if any of the product has been used. If you ever purchase a Weleda product that you suspect has been tampered with, we ask that you immediately return it to the place of purchase.submitted byWeleda Customer Service - 2 years agoBrand expert
Q: Is this tested to be non-comedogenic, i.e. is it supposed to not clog pores? Thanks!

Q: Can you use this on the face?
A: Yes. I watched a video we’re a dermatologist use it for her skin routine. I just bought some today.submitted byPepperscrikit - 4 years ago
Q: Where is the expiration date written on this product?
A: On mine, it is actually imprinted on the back of the tube, all the way at the top on the crimp toward the right side. Since it is an imprint rather than writing or an ink stamp, it is difficult to see at first glance. Hope this helps!submitted bySammiegirlie33 - 5 years ago
