My Aesop Favorites

ashleigh-leech-someform-aesop-skin-care-product-favoritesI’m not big on beauty or skincare, but I have written before about how much I love Australian brand Aesop. With lovely packaging, incredible fragrances and downright awesome products, they’re the one brand that keeps me coming back. Maybe it’s because they will always remind me of home.

01. BODY CLEANSING SLAB

I’m one of those few people that still loves using bar soap. A simple and effective soap slab of generous proportions, for all skin types. Bergamot Rind, Ylang Ylang, Tahitian Lime. AU$25

02. AMAZING FACE CLEANSER

Incredible fragrance and my skin loves it too. A low-foaming, mandarin-infused gel cleanser for combination or oily skin. Mandarin Rind, Ylang Ylang, Lavender Stem. AU$31

03. BITTER ORANGE ASTRINGENT TONER

Time to admit that this is the first toner I ever used! A refreshing toner for most skin types, particularly oily or blemish-prone. Bitter Orange, Witch Hazel, Rosemary Leaf. AU$33

04. OIL FREE FACIAL HYDRATING SERUM

I’ve never been able to use moisturizers, but this serum is a nice alternative that is light on the skin. A hydrating serum for combination, oily or troubled skin. Aloe Vera, Ylang Ylang, Panthenol. AU$63

05. ROSEHIP SEED LIP CREAM

I often spot passengers pulling this out on long haul flights. A non-greasy, vitamin-rich cream to soothe and hydrate lips. Rosehip Seed, Tocopherol, Ylang Ylang. AU$15

06. GERANIUM LEAF BODY BALM

My favorite to cheekily sample whenever I pass a store. An exceptional hydrating balm, perfect for all skin types. Geranium Leaf, Mandarin Rind, Bergamot Rind. AU$37

07. RESURRECTION AROMATIQUE HAND WASH

The way we go through it, it’s out of our budget to use at home everyday! A superior cleansing gel for hard-working hands. Mandarin Rind, Rosemary Leaf, Cedar Atlas. AU$40

08. GINGER FLIGHT THERAPY

Warm and spicy, this is a blessing on long flights! Uplifting pulse-point therapy to stimulate the senses. Ginger Root, Lavender, Geranium. AU$31

09. RIND CONCENTRATE BODY BALM

A little goes a long way, these tubes seem to last forever. A fast-acting, refreshing moisturizing balm for all skin types. Orange Rind, Pink Grapefruit, Lemon Rind. AU$37

10. DEODORANT

I use this lovely fragrance as a body spray, it’s often spritzed on purchases from the store. A spray deodorant for men and women, with an appealing Vetiver scent. Vetiver Root, Zinc Ricinoleate, Coriander Seed. AU$35

11. MARRAKECH INTENSE EAU DE TOILETTE

I’ve never liked overly feminine fragrances, so this woody oriental blend is perfect to me. It’s the one item that’s still on my wish list. A raw, unorthodox fragrance for men and women. AU$79

12. JET SET KIT

And finally, the perfect miniature set for traveling includes shampoo, conditioner, cleanser and body balm. I was lucky to get this one from Santa last year. Four in-flight essentials for hair and body. AU$41

    It’s a bit of a weird one, but I keep a “Immediate Moisture Facial Hydrosol” Spray at my desk at work. You spray yourself in the face with it. It smells amazing, it fights the dry aircon/heating and it also wakes me up and invigorates my brain. I feel a little pampered whenever I do it.

      Love the sound of this Tess, thanks for the tip! I’ve never tried it, but seems like I certainly need to. I’ll have to get some; might be a nice alternative to drinking too many coffees at work!
