Today I have another brand review for you. If you don’t know what that is, I basically look inside my collection, see if there is a brand I have more products from and give you the overall opinion on the brand. I have already written an Eveline brand review and Benefit brand review.
Quoted from the label.m website: “label.m – the official haircare product of the London Fashion Week – is an award-winning fashion-inspired range developed by professional stylists under the creative eye of a dynamic International Artistic Team led by Toni Mascolo & Sacha Mascolo-Tarbuck.”
label.m products in my collection
Here is a list of things I got sent from Top Stil by label.m:
- label.m Leave-In Conditioner 60 ml*
- label.m Shine Mist 50 ml*
- label.m Honey & Oat Shampoo 60 ml*
- label.m Honey & Oat Conditioner 60 ml*
After I have been using these products, I actually decided I really enjoyed the Honey & Oat range for the reasons I will list later, and I decided to buy a set of full sized products. This big set comes with the following:
- label.m Honey & Oat Shampoo 300 ml
- label.m Honey & Oat Conditioner 300 ml
- label.m Honey & Oat Mask 120 ml
The label.m products review
Let’s start with the least exciting ones (for me).
1. Shine Mist
Quote from the website: “label.m Shine Mist is versatile enough for all hair types. Evenly disperses a virtually weightless mist that imparts incredible shine. With added UV protection, to streamline the look of your style so it’s really smooth and healthy looking. ”
So, the shine mist is actually nice. It’s not sticky, it actually feels quite nice and silky on the hair. The fact is, it feels a bit too silky, and my hair is quite soft in the first place. However, my mom, as soon as she saw that I got this product immediately asked if she could have it, so of course I gave it to her 😀
Now, I had to call my mom and ask her to tell us her review, and she says it makes her hair look really nice and shiny. Her hair is short, and she says it’s awesome for finishing up hairstyles. So all you short haired girls out there, you might want to check it out! Also, anyone with really coarse and dull hair might like it.
The shine mist is available in 60ml or 200ml on the website, the smaller one retails for £4.20 and the bigger one for £14.25. It comes in a small spray bottle, and it sprays really nicely and evenly.
2. Leave-In Conditioner
Quote from the website: “label.m Leave-In Conditioner smoothes and strengthens all hair types and shields against static and UV rays. Ginger, Ginseng, Bergamot, Juniper, Mandarin Orange and Vanilla control frizz and enhance tousled curls. The exclusive Enviroshield Complex further protects against damage from heat styling.”
While this one did not impress me, honestly, it actually does what it claims. My hair can get a bit frizzy, but never with this product. However, it’s really sticky, especially on the hands after you’ve applied it to your hair, and my hair got a bit crusty every time I’ve used it. I will give it a few more chances, though. The smell is not my favorite, but I can’t say it’s bad. I can definitely see this one working for curly girls!
As I said, mine is 60ml and I’ve used it multiple times and used less than a half of it. It will last you quite a long time and you’ll have plenty of time to see if you like it. The packaging is just like you’ll see of the shampoo below, but it’s quite liquidy, so it simply oozes right out.
You can get the Leave-In Conditioner in 3 different sizes: 60ml (£3.75), 300ml (£14.50) or 1000ml (£28).
3. Honey & Oat
Now we’ve come to the stars of the show. This was love at first sniff and love at first try. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. First things first.
Quote from the website (it’s pretty much the same for the shampoo and conditioner): “label.m Honey & Oat Shampoo delivers effective conditioning without heaviness. Contains Honey, Oat extracts, Sea Algae and Sea Cabbage to remoisturise. Soothes and strengthens and our exclusive Enviroshield Complex, actively protects hair against heat styling and UV rays.”
Quote from the website (Mask): “A lightweight hydrating mask for visibly dry and dehydrated hair. The exclusive Hydra-5 moisture-regulating complex works to prevent damage, replace lost moisture, and strengthen from within leaving hair luxuriously soft & strong with a luscious scent.”
The first thing you’ll notice is the scent. You cannot not notice it
(does that sentence work?). It reminds me so much of Christmas and Christmas cookies. I can’t. It’s perfect, it lingers (but in a good way) and you’ll spend your day sniffing your hair. Fact.
No, the scent is not the only pro. I know I’ve been raging about the L’Oreal Elseve line multiple times, but I don’t know if they’ve changed something, or my hair and scalp changed, but those products no longer work for me. I am struggling with so much dullness, dryness, hair falling out (I’ll be bald in a few years if that continues), and even dandruff. I know, right?
However, this combo of the Shampoo and Conditioner literally saved my hair. It’s bouncy again, it appears fuller, it’s much healthier, it’s shiny and it’s everything it hasn’t been in a very long time. The only thing I can attribute it to is this combination of products and taking B-complex every single day.
This is by no means a cheap product. By them selves, these products are so expensive, I was about to cry when my shampoo was on it’s last leg. I mean, it’s not that expensive, but comparing it to the $3 L’Oreal, it’s quite a shock 😀 I was not going to spend that much money on those products. Or so I thought.
Shampoo 60ml (£3.75) is what I have, and I was probably able to use it for almost 10 times. Okay, maybe 7. They also have the 300ml (£13.50), the 1000ml (£26) and the 3750ml (£55).
Since I use shampoo pretty much always 2 times, the 60ml Conditioner (£4.20) is lasting me even longer. They also have the 300ml (£16.25), the 1000ml (£32) and the 3750ml (£58).
The Mask, I haven’t tried yed, I have to be honest. But by the looks of it, I think it’s going to be amazing. I will make sure to let you know the update on that in my favorites or empties in the future. It smells just like the shampoo and conditioner, though, so that’s enough for me 😀
It comes in 2 different sizes: 120ml (£15.95) and 750ml (£30).
Like I said above, the packaging of the small products suck, as you can see in the photo below. It’s quite hard to get it out, so I have to bang it against my hand until it comes out 😀 But I did manage to use the whole shampoo up. Not a drop left.
The bigger products, which I did end up buying, have a much better solution, which you can also see in the photo below.
Basically, the story is, it was Cyber Monday (:D). They had this awesome set that I can’t find now, as well as everything else on the site 40% off (that was Top Stil, not the official label.m site). Soooo, I snatched a wicked deal on this one. I actually paid around £20 for the whole thing 😀 Crazy right? And if you added up the prices of each of these individually, they are a total of £45.70!
I did find a very similar set you can get yourself. It contains the same products, but the packaging is different than mine, and for some reason, in Croatia the price of those two sets is different, too. Anyways, it’s the label.m House of Holland Honey & Oat Pampering Trio set, which retails for £32.20 on sale right now.
Overall opinion of the brand
I have to say first that I am aware I haven’t tried nearly enough product to be able to judge the whole brand. But I do have an opinion, and I am pretty sure I’ve become their loyal customer from now on. At least, when it comes to the Honey&Oat range of products.
I am completely amazed at how great these products are. I am definitely going to keep repurchasing them over and over again.
I do have to say, I wish they didn’t have the same packaging for every single shampoo and every single conditioner. Basically every shampoo is black, and every conditioner is white. I would appreciate it if I didn’t have to read every single one to find what I’m looking for.
Other than that, I think everyone can find something for themselves according to their needs, which is what I appreciate really much, but what I appreciate the most, is the fact that I’ve found my new holy grail product.
I think it’s nice that they give you the option to buy a small size, so that you can decide if you want to buy the big one, or if it’s not worth the money.
I encourage you to try these, or at least smell the Honey&Oat range if you ever get a chance 😀
And that’s it for this post. I know it’s a long one, but I had quite a lot to say, as you can see.
Have you tried any of the label.m products? Do you enjoy them? Which one of these would you try? What is your favorite combination of shampoo and conditioner?
Thank you for reading!
See you soon x
