Etsy Favourites: White Rabbit Skincare

If you're a beauty and skincare geek like me, you'll be all over the wonderful Caroline Hiron's Beauty Mouth blog, where she gives no-nonsense reviews, recommendations and cheat sheets on skincare routines and products. Scotland-based skincare brand White Rabbit were given a shout out on the Beauty Mouth blog, recommending in particular their Comfort Cleansing Balm as an alternative to Eve Lom's cult favourite - with a more purse-friendly price and no mineral oils. I'm actually really happy with the cleanser I'm currently using (another Caroline Hirons pick, Emma Hardie's Moringa cleansing balm), but was intrigued to follow up White Rabbit's skincare range, especially being handmade in Scotland and their use of essential oils. I'm interested in moving my skincare towards more natural products so was delighted to see the large range of natural products they have. Even better, they are all vegan and bunny-friendly - tested on humans only.

I settled on a few products from White Rabbit's Etsy shop - two day moisturisers, one night cream and a serum. A few days later they were delivered, along with a cute White Rabbit canvas bag. It was perfect timing as my old moisturiser was running out and  it was good to feel excited about using some new products!
The Cell Renewal Serum, has a blend of oils with a bright hit of citrus scent from neroli oil. This is my favourite product to use and my skin felt instantly smoothed without the greasy feeling you can get with some oil serums. I currently use this every evening and on occasion in the morning if I feel like my skin needs an extra hit of moisture, and I really feel like it makes a difference. The night cream, It's All About M.E.! is suitable for all skin types, helping to soothe and calm skin, whilst firming and improving elasticity. This has a light floral scent and a lovely whipped texture and is a great combination with the serum as it's not too heavy. £1 of each pot goes to the M.E. Association so it's a nice charity boost as well. The other moisturisers I've tried are the Coconut and Rosehip Calming Cream and Dew Soft Day Cream. The calming cream is for problematic skin, whether that be a breakout or itching, and also contains witch hazel, tea tree and lavender oil. This is the creamiest in texture of the three and has a more-or-less neutral scent, with a slight lingering of tea tree oil. The day cream is indeed soft and dreamy with a light texture that still has real moisturising power behind it and is good for my sensitive skin days.

I'm really enjoying using the White Rabbit products, with my top pick being the Cell Renewal Serum and its heavenly scent. I am looking forward to trying more products and the range seems to be developing all the time so I will be keeping up with what they've got to offer and if you love natural cruelty-free skincare, you should too!
