Current Skin Care Favourites from Aesop
Recently my obsession with Aesop products has grown exponentially, and it's all thanks to fellow influencers on Instagram like @mressentialist. He often features a number of their products in his incredible bathroom shots, and seeing them pop up on my feed more recently inspired me to pickup a few products of my own.
Camelia Nut Hydrating Facial Cream
The first product that I started using from Aesop was the Camelia Nut Hydrating Facial Cream. This moisturizer is great because it's definitely on the heavier side, but it glides onto the skin effortlessly and doesn't leave my skin feeling weighed down or greasy. As a matter of fact, it leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth and moisturized to perfection. Another huge bonus is the pleasant fragrance. It smells earthy but the citrus notes and rosemary balance everything out. The result is a hydrating cream that smells quite spa-like and I'm definitely not opposed to it! If you have dry or dry-combination skin, I highly recommend you give this cream a try.
Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Serum
The second product I tested out from Aesop was the Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Serum. This has to be my favourite product of the three because you can use it as a lighter moisturizer on its own, or you can layer it. Personally, I like applying this product underneath the Camelia Nut Facial Hydrating Cream because my skin tends to be quite dry during the colder months. However, upon the arrival of spring I'll definitely be putting this product to the test to see if it's hydrating enough without applying a traditional moisturizer overtop.
Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Facial Oil
To add a boost of antioxidants into my skin, which is great for firming, reducing wrinkles and repairing sun damage, I mix 2-3 drops of the Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Facial Oil into the Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Serum. This combination is great as an overnight treatment, but I have to warn you that the scent when both of these products are combined is...interesting to say the least. Nonetheless, these two products have transformed my skin so I'll continue combining them until I'm down to the very last drop.
Since I started using these Aesop products, I've noticed that my skin has gotten noticeably smoother, more even in complexion, less dull and is always perfectly moisturized. All in all, this trio of products has changed how my skin looks and feels and I couldn't recommend the brand more.
