White Label Women's Apothecary Moisturiser Review

I love moisturiser, like literally, I am always after a moisturiser that makes my skin feel like it's made out of silk. 

A few weeks ago I was very kindly sent the 'White Label Women's Apothecary Moisturiser' by Thomas Michaels. Like me, you have probably never heard of this brand before, and maybe also like me, are intrigued by the name 'apothecary moisturiser'.

Before I received the package, I looked them up on the internet, and here's what their website (which you can find here) says about the moisturiser.

'Hydrating and soothing organic oils combined with luxurious natural ingredients that moisturise and nourish your skin. Scented with Pure Essential Oils that feed the skin including Cinnamon, Patchouli, and Mellissa.'

The thing that stood out to me most was that the moisturiser is completely hand made and organic, which made very excited to try it.
Another thing that stood out to me was the £25 price tag. 

I don't know about you but I have never payed more than £10 for a moisturiser before, so I had pretty high expectations for this moisturiser, in order to justify the price.

I received the package, and it was very well wrapped, and had a lovely note inside from, I'm assuming, Mr Thomas Michaels himself, and the first thing I noticed was how pretty, and how expensive looking, the moisturiser was. 

Then came the actual try on test. Now as it is completely organic, I had no worries about it reacting with my rather sensitive skin, what I wasn't prepared for, was the smell.

If you could shove Christmas into a tub, this is what it would smell like.

If you aren't a fan of cinnamon, then this moisturiser would not be suited for you at all, I used this for two weeks before writing up this review, and you can smell this moisturiser all day long.
For me, this wasn't a problem, it smelt warm, spicy, and literally like Christmas, and I love the smell of cinnamon, so I loved it.

But, does the product justify the £25 price tag?

In my opinion, it does.

The product itself does what it says on the tin. It's moisturising, my skin felt amazing, I smelt amazing, I actually didn't feel the need to wear perfume when using this (the website instructs you to use this on your face and neck) and it soaked into the skin quickly and didn't leave any greasy or sticky residue like a lot of moisturisers do.

The only fault I can pick with this is the smell. I loved it, but I know a lot of people who hate the smell of cinnamon, and this moisturiser feels more suited to used in the winter/around Christmas time, rather than the whole year round.

I must also mention that a little goes a long way with this product, so you do get your money's worth.

Have you ever tried White Label? Let me know in the comments!
