MuLondon is a UK based business that sells natural organic skincare. Their products are handmade, all natural, organic, vegan, cruelty-free, mild, concentrated and without preservatives. I was so excited when Boris, the founder, gave me an opportunity to try it. I have been suffering from some serious case of dry-face.
Coolest moisturizer ever in terms of texture.
The moisturizer appears thick because it is super concentrated (no added water). I actually thought it resembled candle wax when I first opened the jar. Fear not though, the lotion easily melts into your skin. It is super moisturizing and smells lightly refreshing.
Certified organic ingredients
I chose the Organic Lavendar moisturizer because I have sensitive skin and it’s perfect for it. I only have to use a pea sized amount to feel moisturized for hours. I love that it is so concentrated!
Now for a little comparison and rant:
MuLondon Organic Lavender Moisturizer vs. LUSH Vanishing Cream
I paid $40+ for the LUSH Vanishing Cream last month and became a very unhappy girl. The Vanishing Cream is an okay light moisturizer for the face – but it is barely worth even $10. I did not realize until after I bought it that LUSH uses all sorts of parabens in their lotions. The smell of Vanishing Cream is also nothing to write home about – especially since perfume is one of the ingredients!
Vanishing Cream is really watered down.
MuLondon Organic Lavender Moisturizer is much more affordable (a quarter of the price), more concentrated and effective, smells better and is all natural and free of preservatives.
To top it all off, the shelf life of the natural, organic MuLondon moisturizer is just as good as the the preservative-filled Lush cream. My theory is that Lush has to use preservatives to keep bacteria from growing in their products because their lotions contain such high amounts of moist water (second ingredient), which attracts bacteria. The MuLondon moisturizer is completely undiluted – so preservatives aren’t a necessity. Just a theory because I’m no lotion expert.
You can order MuLondon moisturizers from the MuLondon website. A 60 mL bottle sells for £13 whereas a 30 mL bottle sells for only £7. They ship internationally – to which I am most grateful. I definitely recommend this. I think I will order the Rose or White Chocolate Truffle (yum!) moisturizer whenever I am done with this one. What do you think? Have you ever tried a MuLondon moisturizer? If so, which one would you recommend?
