Introducing Organic Skincare With Antique Apothecary

I'm very much into my skincare, even more so than makeup, but one thing I don't know a great deal about is natural and organic based skincare products. Admittedly hunting for natural products isn't my highest priority when it comes to skincare, it's naive of me to say but if a product works, then it works, whether it's organic or not.

Luckily for me I was recently introduced to Antique Apothecary, an organic brand which fuses nature and luxury together. Antique Apothecary develop state of the art natural products which live up to the high quality standard of luxury items of modern times, and what's amazing about the brand is that they're family run and everything is made by them from scratch here in the UK. Amazing right?


When you order through Antique Apothecary you will receive your goodies in an amazing assorted gift box, so no two orders will be the same, which I think is an absolutely fabulous idea. My order came in a beautiful owl printed teal green gift box which was such a lovely surprise and looks beautiful on my coffee table. It's the perfect box for popping all my odds & ends in, and lord knows I've got a load of them lying around the house!




In my package came the Moisturising Lotion With Rose Otto & Cherry Blossom which is a floral toning lotion suitable for all skin types. I've been using the toner as part of my skincare routine, after cleansing and before moisturising both on a morning & on the evening. The product is mega refreshing and gentle on the skin, which you don't often find with products as heavily scented as this, so I was really pleasantly surprised. The product disperses brilliantly from the nozzle, covering the full face in just a couple of squirts & sinks seamlessly into the skin making a perfect base for the rest of your skincare routine.



To moisturise I've been religiously using the Athina Anti-Ageing Cream With Mediterranean Ingredients which has been an absolute godsend, especially while I've been in Iceland. The moistusier is perfect for all skin types, but especially helps those with dehydrated and fatigued looking skin like myself, as it's packed full of essential oils. You get an instant hit with this moisturiser as it has such an oily intensity, which I feel some people may not get on with, but I 100% love it! I love it when you can feel a product is working right from the get go & that's exactly what I get from this baby.

Thirdly I received the award winning Sun & Beauty Natural Sunscreen, which admittedly I haven't been using as much as the previous two products, but I have been training myself into using it. A lot of the beauty products I use had an added SPF so I'd never felt the need to use a separate sun protecting lotion, but from what I've tried this one has been ace. I've been popping this on, on a morning before applying my makeup and not only does it smell beautiful, it's protecting my skin & it also acts as a surprisingly good primer. What's not to like about it?


When you order with Antique Apothecary you will also receive a list of ingredients used within each product which I think is an amazing addition. For someone who doesn't know a massive amount about natural & organic skincare this really helped tell me a little bit more about each product. They're also able to customise their products, for example if you're allergic to one of their ingredients, you can send them an email & they can make it for you to suit, which I think is amazing! Antique Apothecary really have gone the extra mile with their products!
