From spending his childhood years in the same vicinity as our current family dwellings, the genius behind Aesop’s birth and concept is simply one of those humans you naturally aspire to take life goals from.
Cultured solely within his own creative mind and tunnel vision ambition, Aesop’s founder built a distinct company foundation that has since been filtered down to the carefully formulated product offerings, as well as the aesthetics of both the brand and retail stores. This basis, coupled with his desire to interpret normality through simplistic notions- without making obvious the extensive work invested into achieving just that, is why the brand successfully resonates to so many people; it’s humble and always true to form.
But perhaps what we admire most about the brand is their attention to the smallest details. For us, its the expert advice; products are consistently and expertly recommended based on your needs, lifestyle and of course, natural skin tendencies.
Between the two of us, we’ve built a collection of products that we’re both hopelessly obsessed with. Among these, our favourites are:
1. Parsley Seed Eye Cream
Perfect for dry and sensitive eyes. The price is steeper than the other products, but it has definitely been worth the investment. Results are fairly immediate and this cream has without a doubt made a huge difference.
2. Camellia Nut Facial Hydrating Cream
Best face moisturiser for those with a combination of dry and oily skin. The trace of fatty acids take care of the dryness, whilst the perfect balance in formulation ensures any skin irritation or sensitivity is kept at bay.
3. Moroccan Neroli Post Shave Lotion
This product is ideal for super sensitive skin- we don’t shave our faces you guys. Not too oily and not too dry, this moisturiser is perfect for everyday use, even under makeup. As a plus, your man can use it too.
4. Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque
Used once or twice weekly, this masque makes your skin feel super rejuvenated. It’s light consistency and activates within a few minutes- we usually go 15 minutes before rinsing. It’s a perfect product to use in between daily cleansers and toners.
5. Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm
No bag, purse or clutch should be without one of these. We have multiple of these and swear allegiance to the addictive smell of mandarin rind and its nurturing components.
With earthy scents and soothing textures, Aesop’s products are hands down one of our favourite brands to use in our daily regimes. These products have become the life force of our everyday routines and we remain on a mission to grow our stash further…
