In the face oils series, needless to say I love face oils. I’m insanely obsessed with them. In the spirit of my obsession, I recently purchased much raved about Aesop Fabulous Face Oil. I’m very well acquainted with Aesop as a brand, as it hails from my home city. Aesop products have very distinct fragrance (herbal, natural, spa like) associated with their products. Packaging is very clinical, practical, brown glass bottle with pipette and simple labeling.
Fabulous Face Oil claims to detoxify your skin and balance normal or patchy skin with non-greasy finish. Strangely it does balance my skin, I feel it adjusts to my skin and really nourishes and hydrates dry patches. All I need is 3 drops all over my face, not that I have huge ogre face but I really enjoy massaging oil in my skin. It feels very calming and relaxing, almost like pseudo aromatherapy session in comfort of my home. As it suggests it doesn’t leave a greasy feeling at all, I top it with Dr.Scheller Lavender Night Cream. Yes I have a sensory orgasm with these two. Let’s just say I reserve this combination as a treat 😉Would love to try Aesop Damascus Rose Oil which I hear is very hydrating. The price tag is slightly hefty but little goes long way so I can justify. Plus skincare is something I like to invest in. I will skimp on lipsticks, mascara etc but skincare needs to have good ingredients.
