Making Text Look Realistic

I have quite a lot of this sort of work coming up. 
– Take a product = remove existing text; 
– then replace it with proposed new text 
inevitably, as this is something that is being kicked about by various Marketing "bods" the text will go through dozens of revisions – so flexibility is important. 
Equally important though, is making the text look as realistic as I can, given that it needs to follow the shape of the can. I have seen a few different approaches applied to similar projects – spherizing, warping etc – I am just not sure what approach to take myself. 
Any suggestions on likely approaches to this? 
Two images attached. 
One is the blank product (a hairspray in this case) 
the second has the text on the front – in its basic format.
