I want do dedicate a blogpost to the famous skincare brand AESOP. Do you know that feeling? not knowing what to choose? AESOP is known for their minimalist (medicine bottle like) packaging and their large range of products. I never knew what to buy from this skincare brand because they offer such a large range of personal products. Thanks to the lovely salesladies at SKINS COSMETICS I recently got to know more about the product range and what AESOP has to offer. Let me tell you more about AESOP:
“We are committed to using both plant-based and laboratory-made ingredients of the highest quality and proven efficacy – particularly those with the greatest anti-oxidant properties. We value all human endeavours undertaken with intellectual rigour, vision, and a nod to the whimsical. Every Aesop product is made with the same attention to detail we believe should be applied to life at large, taking into consideration a diversity of needs as well as seasonal and environmental conditions.”
As you can read above AESOP products are made from plant-based and laboratory-made ingredients. The smell can be described as ‘herbaceous’ and ‘medicinal’. There are big individual differences in scent preferences so I would not recommend AESOP to someone who doesn’t like this kind of scents. If the scent is a killer for you i guess you better leave it alone! Let me help you a little bit trough your search for AESOP products.
This is a great addition to your skincare collection, a must have for the warmer days. “A Rose Petal-infused spritzing hydrator to refresh and revive skin and mind. Ideal for those journeying long-distance and those who spend exhausting hours at their desks craving sensory stimulation.” Use this:
