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!

  1. I love a good cinnamon smell! Would love to try this moisturiser! £25 is how much I spend on a moisturiser anyway as I buy Clinique and Liz Earle moisturisers! Sounds like an awesome products! Definitely a fab gift for around Christmas too!

  3. Your photos are so beautiful! Can tell how much thought you've put into this post. I love the look of the moisturiser, and I think the fact that it smells like Christmas in a tub sells it for me haha x

  4. Okay so I read the £25 for a tub and went to click off almost immediately, but then Christmas caught my eye and I was hooked! To be honest I probably wouldn't fork out that much for it, mainly cos I won't even spend that on my foundation if I can help it, but a great review none the less!

  5. £25 for a moisturiser is a little bit much but if you only need some for it to be effective that's just perfect! I'm always worried about using more than I need, I couldn't fork out that much but I suppose if it works for my skin, I might do, see I have very sensitive skin so I've got to be careful! Also Christmas in a tub sounds amazing, I am a massive lover of cinnamon as long as it's not too strong! Perfect post babe, I adore it.

  6. I'm so impressed that you felt this moisturiser was worth the £25 price tag! I like the fact that wearing this would mean you wouldn't need to apply perfume, I bet it smells incredible! So great to hear that it's organic as well, if it's also cruelty free, I'd love to pick up a bottle!

  7. You sold me with this one line - 'If you could shove Christmas into a tub, this is what it would smell like.' I love the smell of cinnamon and I love moisturisers and this one does seem just from your review good value for the price!

  8. This looks absolutely gorgeous, I'm so tempted to give this a try!! Thanks so much for sharing it! Also your photos are just stunning!

  9. Oh my god girl your photography is so stunning! This product sounds seriously amazing, anything that smells like cinnamon and christmas is a win in my book. I definitely think I need to try this out!

  10. I'm loving the style of your photos lately! But also this moisturiser sounds lovely. I have to say I've never spent that much on a moisturiser before nor do I think I could put up with the smell of cinnamon like that but it sounds great for its purpose! Also looks really nice in its packaging. Great review!

  11. Your photos are gorgeous! I'm always dubious when spending lots of money on a moisturiser so thanks for such an honest review, it sounds like it would smell amazing!


  12. I've never heard of this brand but it does sound great, I'm not sure I'd pay the price tag though!
