MuLondon: Organic Marigold, Frankincense and Myrrh Moisturiser

.....and the three wise men knelt down and paid baby Jesus homage. Then, opening their treasure chests, they offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

Gold, frankincense and myrrh.

Okay, let’s leave the gold out, but how quaint is it to have marigold, frankincense and myrrh all together in one moisturiser?

This Organic Marigold, Frankincense and Myrrh Moisturiser contains:

Shea Butter, Coconut Butter, Jojoba Oil, Rosemary Extract, Blue Chamomile Extract, Marigold Extract, Frankincense Essential Oil, Myrrh Essential Oil.
Contains naturally occurring Limonene from Frankincense Essential Oil.
All, except for the frankincense and myrrh essential oils, are certified organic ingredients.

Frankincense and myrrh come from sap obtained from the trees of the genus Boswellia and Commiphora respectively. The resin has been used for millennia for religious and medicinal purposes and that was why Boris (of MuLondon) made a moisturiser with these. I was told that marigold was added into the mix because the flower is “amazing for problematic, inflamed skin.

This cream smells like incense. It smells almost like mass in church. It has a spicy sweet fragrance, invigorating, but quite unusual for me to be able to smell this from a jar, instead of in church.

As with all the other moisturisers from MuLondon, this one can be used on the face and on the body. It's also good to know that all of MuLondon's moisturisers are now rated 0, ie very low hazard, in the Cosmetic Safety Database.

I seem to always sing praises about MuLondon and it didn’t escape the notice of one lovely reader of mine. She commented recently that MuLondon doesn’t seem to have any disadvantages. I’ve thought hard about it. Well, if I must, here are a couple of things I can say:

• Just like any moisturiser from any brand, a jar of MuLondon cream will not last forever. I know, because it’s super concentrated, you don’t need to use a lot each time, leading you to hope that it might last forever. However, if you use it diligently on a daily basis on your body and limbs, you will see the bottom of the jar in three months, more or less.

• You need patience when applying any MuLondon moisturiser. The creams are thick and quite hard, like butter that’s been kept in the refrigerator. We’ve become so used to applying (diluted) creams straight from tubes/bottles to the skin. With MuLondon creams, you would need to first ‘scrape’ some cream out (but if you live in a warmer climate, the cream would of course be softer), put it in the palm of your hand and rub it till it melts (just like butter). And only then, apply on skin. So, you see, it takes more effort.

Well, those aren’t quite disadvantages, are they? They are just facts, the reality of a cream that is hand-made and highly concentrated.

The choice is yours.

Note: As with the Organic White Chocolate Truffle Moisturiser, this cream was also my own purchase. It is prized at £13 for a 60ml jar and £7 for a 30ml jar.

This sounds absolutely gorgeous! I looked on their website and I would love to get the Rose moisturiser. I love all natural ingredients in my moisturisers, excellent review!! xx

Witoxicity said...

Yes, you do get more bang for your buck as these creams are just so concentrated. :)

Thanks, Nikki. Oh, I'm sure you will love the Organic Rose Moisturiser. I've used that one before (earlier this year). It is mild and it smells sooooo good! :)

You're on a MuLondon kick, aren't you? Sweet... :D

Witoxicity said...

Well, just think incense and something balsamic. That's what it's like. :)

@Shop N' Chomp
Yes, I do love these all-natural multi-purpose creams from MuLondon, so I'm just spreading the word here. :D

Hey dear, where to buy this cream in The Netherlands??? Never came across this brand anywhere, thnx in advance Bayla

MuLondon products are not available in the Netherlands per se. Its products can be purchased from the UK-based MuLondon website (link given in the post). I've been buying mine through the website and I find the shipping fees reasonable. To get a good overall view of MuLondon, I hope you've gone through all my posts on Brand: MuLondon and if you have any questions about ordering, you can always contact Boris (the man behind MuLondon). I hope this helps, Bayla. :)
