Aesop’s Purifying Facial Exfoliant Paste is a superb exfoliating paste that refreshes the skin and removes any nasties. Suitable for all skin types, this paste combines finely ground quartz that remove any dead surface skin and features lactic acid that dissolves grime and oil. On those baking hot days this will be ideal for at the end of the day to clean away any blocked pores and sweat. In addition the extracts of Rosemary Leaf, Lavender and Evening Primrose oils work to comfort the skin.
If you’re in need of a gentle cleanser for balanced skincare then Aesop’s Fabulous Face Cleanser is the one. What you can expect is clean skin without the dryness in addition to some lovely herbaceous notes. It’s made up from some of the gentlest cleansing agents around and is even effective without prior cleaning of the skin. This cleanser is suitable for all skin types but is ideal for those prone to dryness or sensitivity.
For us personally, Aesop’s B & Tea Balancing Toner is a firm favourite. It’s an all day, all-climate, everyday facial toner that is the perfect finish to the cleaning process. This toner leaves the skin calm, clean, refreshed and protected due to the Green Tea infused, Provitamin B5 anti-oxidants.
Aesop’s Parley Seed Anti-Oxidant Facial Hydrating Cream will be your sunny-season skin saviour. A big factor in your skincare is the changes your skin goes through when you’re out and about. Air-con and heating are dehydrating conditions that disrupt the skin’s protective moisture barrier, causing dryness.
The lack of moisture makes your skin flaky and patchy, Aesop suggest using a hydrating cream daily to counteract this.
For some, shaving ones face can often be a task that gets put off until the last possible moment but after you’ve dabbled in Aesop’s Moroccan Neroil Shaving Serum things change. This botanical formula maximises slip texture and assists in executing the perfect shave with a warm, woody, exotic aroma. A blend of gentle, hydrating botanicals that possess skin-calming properties allow for a close shave without assaulting or irritating your skin.
