AESOP SKINCARE REVIEW
It was the unique interiors of every Aesop store that first caught my attention. If you've ever been to an Aesop space, you would instantly notice, no two stores are exactly alike. Always designed with a minimalistic approach, each space is built with materials that match back to the locations environment. It's as if you're stepping into an art installation. You become intrigued, curious and just want to know more. I thought, if they placed this much emphasis on their store design and so much attention to detail in their visual merchandising, imagine how good their products must be. It just had to live up to the same high standards - and it sure did.
I've been using Aesop's Fabulous Face Cleanser along with the B & Tea Balancing Toner as my nighttime skincare routine for about 3 months now. The cleanser makes my skin so soft and the toner is really firming.
The Fabulous Face Cleanser
Plant-based without a large string of harmful ingredients, the Fabulous Face Cleansers is made from chamomile, rosemary leaves, green tea and aloe vera extracts. Those four ingredients may seem strong as a blend, but instead the scent is very subtle and actually really calming. I love that it's low-foaming and mild on the skin, and you don't need much to get the job done. Just a dime size will do. I gently lather it all over my face, then wash it off with cold water. It leaves my skin feeling fresh and super soft. The scent also stays with you for awhile, so it's as if you're getting a bit of aroma therapy, too.
The B & Tea Balancing Toner
I follow the face cleanser with the B & Tea Balancing Toner. Also gentle, it's made from B vitamins and green tea leaving my face firm, toned and with a nice glow. A great tip to make your toner last longer. Instead of patting the toner on with my fingers, I pour it on cotton rounds, then slide it all over my face. You actually use less toner and get more coverage this way since the liquid still lives on the cotton round, where as if you use your fingers, you lose the liquid because it dries up faster. I use the premium version from Target here. I'm picky and like the smoother rounds. You don't get leftover lint on your face. :)
I'm really happy with the results of both these Aesop products and am excited to test out a few more along with a trip anywhere to visit their beautiful stores.
