MuLondon Organic Rose Moisturiser

MuLondon is a handmade, natural organic skin care brand. Their moisturisers are organic, 100% vegan and sustainably produced. They contain only shea butter, natural and essential oils and essences. The packaging is simple and unfussy too which I really like. I'll admit that what initially attracted me to the products were the delicious sounding scents such as White Chocolate Truffle, Lavender and Rose, Rosehip and Rosemary.

These moisturisers have a very different consistency to that which most of us are used to. They don't contain water and at room temperature they are a solid. I have been using the Organic Rose moisturiser for a couple of months now, it's quite a rich moisturiser and so I have preferred to use it as a night cream. You can add water if desired but the way I tend to apply is to spray my face with a toner, scoop out up a small shaving of the cream and warm between my hands before applying to my still damp face. You only need a small amount to cover the face and once warmed, the moisturiser takes on an oil consistency which feels lovely to massage in. If you've ever used coconut oil you'll probably have a good idea of the solid to oil change I'm describing.

The smell of the Organic Rose moisturiser is lovely, it's delicate and very feminine. This is another reason I particularly favour using this as part of my night time routine as I find the lovely smell helps me relax at bedtime. I haven't used the White Chocolate Truffle moisturiser yet but I can say that it smells delicious. I will report back once I have tested it properly.

I find this moisturiser doesn't sink straight into my skin and there is a visible film that sits on my skin's surface before I go to bed. However, my skin feels lovely and soft in the morning with no trace of greasiness. In terms of using this as a day moisturiser, I think this would be best suited to drier skin types, although it can be watered down as I mentioned above. I imagine it would make a nice base for foundation and give a glowy effect.

The MuLondon moisturisers are available from and they all come in 30ml or 60ml size jars. The Organic Rose is a bit more expensive than the other varieties at £10 for 30ml or £19 for 60ml. As you only need a small amount to cover the face, even one of the small pots would last you a couple of months so I think they're good value.

Disclosure: The products were sent to me without cost for review purposes.


  1. I have not heard of the this brand before but it sounds interesting and the solid looking cream looks good enough to eat! The price points seem very reasonable too.

  2. Ooh Jane, another interesting brand that I've never heard off! I love the sound of it and will look into getting some for my kit! Not for me but it sounds like a good one for massaging onto stressed dry skin. Thanks, lovely post! xx

  3. Oh I love this moisturiser. I'm just about to place another order of the Rose Otto :)

  4. Sounds lovely! Think I might put in an order for the Organic Rose as I need a new night cream to try x

  5. I love the sound of the white chocolate one, slightly worried that Mr London would try to eat it though ;) These do sound very good.

  6. @Meeta: I first came across the brands via Dempeaux’s blog. I like the fact that it’s a solid as there’s something deeply satisfying about melting it! I think it’s good that they come in two sizes too.

    @Kenneth: I think it would be a good one for your kit. With the essential oils and natural base I think it could be good on stressed skins and I do think it would work for preparing skin for makeup. I’d love to know what you think if you get it x

    @dempss01: I really like it which you can probably see from the big dent! There’s something about using it, especially at night which makes me feel very ladylike!

    @Claire: I like Rose scented things and the texture of this is lovely. I’d love to know how you get on with it.

    @Grace: I think you might like these, I thought of you when I mentioned the coconut oil. The ingredients are very basic but there’s something really nice about that. The white chocolate one is very sniffable, maybe not a good one for bedtime ;)

  7. Really love the products - using white choco and rose last a long time and it does feel special. Great present so much so mum and sister are hooked.

    Nice to find a.wholesome product.


  8. That sounds amazing! I think I need this for my kit! (and for me too) x

  9. I have been using this for the last 2 months as my skin needed TLC after using an enzyme face wash which left me with dry itching patches. I love it! It instantly relieved my skin and over time, my skin has recovered and it super soft. I use it day & night as I quite like the 'glow' that it gives you skin, it gives yours skin a slight gloss/sheen without being oily. You don't need much. I have the rose and bought the small pot which is just below half way after 2 months. Initially I was use it 2-3 times while my skin recovered - it goes a long way.
