Best Aesop products for this Summer
It’s that time of the year again and our skin knows it, humid weather and hot temperatures affect our skin’s appearance and sadly, not always for the better. That’s why we need to change our skin care routine to an appropriate one that can keep up with this weather. Today I will talk about a very popular brand which you may have heard of before, Aesop. And also, some of their fan-favorite products that are ideal for this season. Aesop is an Australian cosmetic brand established in 1987, and it’s been quite popular for the last years thanks to its approach to skincare beauty in which they fusion traditional Botanics extracted from natural herbs and science. They have become a very popular brands not only because of the high quality of their products, but also because of the packaging’s design and their whole philosophy behind it. Their containers have a minimalistic style, are fully recyclable, thinking of the environmental impact first. Another reason why customers love shopping this brand is because of how unique their stores are. There aren’t 2 Aesop stores that look alike! I didn’t believe it at first until I did some research and looked at pictures online of different locations. Their philosophy of achieving harmony goes truly beyond their products and it can be seen just by the aesthetic, art and architecture in their stores. When you visit a store, it’s like a sensorial experience in a way, not to mention a perfect Instagrammable spot for nice pictures. Aesop - B Triple C Facial Balancing Gel Because of sun exposure our skin can look and feel more dry than usual. That’s why this balancing gel is great moisturizer option thanks to its ingredients like antioxidants, vitamin B and vitamin C. It is completely safe for all types of skin including sensitive and acne-prone skins. It has a very thick texture, almost like honey but surprisingly is absorbed really quickly by the skin. It doesn’t leave the area sticky and instead leaves it fully hydrated with a matte finish, which is a plus! So if you suffer from oily skin it will control that extra shiny and big pores that many people struggle to get rid of. Many customers have also mentioned that it made acne scars appear lighter over time. Another great plus that makes this gel a Summer ally is that it works wonders as a quick cure for sunburns. Simply apply it every morning after doing your regular face cleansing routine. Like we mentioned, its consistency is quite thick so make sure to apply small amounts at a time and spread it evenly throughout your cheeks, chin, neck, and forehead. Aesop - Purifying Facial Exfoliant Paste Once your face is getting enough hydration thanks to the balancing gel we just mentioned, it’s time to take care of the outer layer of our skin and do something about the dead cells that tend to increase for some people, especially those with dry skin and combination skin. Nothing helps more than a proper exfoliation with the right ingredients. This paste will do the job! It’s boosted with botanicals like Rosemary leaf and Rosehip that will make sure your skin is soothed. This cream formula is boosted with a very unique ingredient that is rarely seen in other products; I’m talking about quartz! You read it correctly, this paste is enhanced by extremely tiny quartz that will remove any dead skin and impurities and lactic acid will leave it smooth and soft, so it’s not an aggressive exfoliation. To apply it simply put some paste on your palm and massage your face and areas you want without applying too much pressure, after a few seconds just rise the remaining cream with lukewarm water. Your skin will look revitalized and like new ready for this Summer!

Must-Have Products From Aesop!💖💖
I have combination, sensitive, and acne-prone skin. I want to share some Aesop products that I've used recently and found useful. First is the renowned Aesop - Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Facial Toner. I normally use half a dropper of it and rub it between my palms before pressing it onto my face. It has a light plant scent, and a slightly thick but runny enough consistency. It leaves my skin with a radiant glow but a little sticky as well, which, fortunately, vanishes after a while. I read online that some suggested not following it up with a facial cream, but I think it either way is fine. Facial cream can be easily absorbed, but without it, your skin won't feel dry either. I will consider repurchasing this product since it's a reasonable price. Aesop - B Triple C Facial Balancing Gel It has a thick honey-like texture and you'll need to emulsify it by gently rubbing it between your palms until it's warm before applying it. Wait a few seconds for it to be absorbed. It really leaves me with smoother skin and reduces my acne. In conclusion, it doesn't offer the best user experience, but it does offer great results. Aesop Chamomile Concentrate Anti-Blemish Masque This is an acne-fighting clay mask which offers great results. It's herbal scented, has a soft and smooth texture, and it reduced my acne significantly in just a short time, so I will repurchase it. Aesop - In Two Minds Facial Toner I wanted to buy the Aesop B & Tea Balancing Toner, but when the beauty advisor saw the acne on my face, she recommended me the In Two Minds Facial Toner instead which is suitable for oily, acne-prone skin. It has a light yellow-brown texture and its main ingredients are witch hazel, nicotinamide, and chamomile flower. My T-zone gets oily easily in summer and I find it does a good job at controlling the skin's water-oil balance. Aesop - Parsley Seed Facial Cleanser It gently resurfaces your skin with lactic acid, so it's quite useful for my acne-prone skin. It lathers wells and doesn't leave the skin feeling tight. Aesop - Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm It has a fragrant citrus smell and it's doesn't leave the skin feeling greasy. It's absorbed easily and leaves a matte finish.

Finally, I Found The RIGHT Moisturizers For My Skin😏
I have combination-oily, sensitive, acne-prone skin and after several years of research and experimenting, I finally found some moisturizers and facial creams suitable for my skin. I look for skincare products that are antioxidant, control acne breakouts, repair the skin barrier, improve skin immunity, correct skin tone, and remove acne marks. 1) TOPIX - Replenix Restorative Nighttime Bio-Therapy Main features: It offers antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and calming effects, and helps in skin restoration and stabilization. Main ingredients: Green tea polyphenols are beneficial soothing and anti-inflammatory agents, while 3% niacinamide helps to improve the skin barrier. This is a good enough reason for people with combination-oily, acne-prone skin to choose this product. My irregular daily routine and diet triggers acne breakouts easily and I can never refrain from popping my acne, so I really can't do without anti-inflammatory and restoration skincare. It also contains resveratol and caffeine which are both great at correcting skin tone. It has a smooth texture and it leaves your skin with a matte finish. Attention: Use it after your toner and serum are fully absorbed by gently patting it onto the skin to prevent it from balling up. 2) elta md SKINCARE - AM Therapy Facial Moisturizer Main features: It is moisturizing, offers shine control, corrects skin tone, and reduces acne marks. It's really suitable for combination-oily and sensitive skin. Its main ingredient, nicotinamide, helps in reducing acne scars and correcting skin tone while white willow bark extract leaves the skin smooth and soft. Many say that this moisturizer has a skin lightening effect, but I think that's an exaggeration. It also says that it enhances skin color on the bottle, but I personally think that it only evens skin tone. It has an ice cream texture which spreads and absorbs easily. It's also affordable and feels amazing on the skin. 3) Aesop - B Triple C Facial Balancing Gel Main features: It lightens acne marks, brightens skin complexion, and calms red and inflamed acne. I use it mainly to reduce acne marks and it shows amazing results, visibly reducing my acne marks the next day. It also soothes new acne and boosts skin radiance. It has a gel-like texture, so it doesn't spread easily. I usually use it two to three times a week after first applying a toner and then a serum.

Magical Face Creams For Sensitive Skin🙌🙌
I have sensitive skin and my skin becomes unstable during seasonal changes, so I always need a facial cream for that but I'm always worried that an over-moisturizing cream may cause acne breakouts as well. Recently, I discovered three very useful facial creams. 1) Aesop - B Triple C Facial Balancing Gel It has a herbal citrus scent, honey-like texture, and it's absorbed easily by the skin. It settles on the skin fast and does a good job at reducing new acne marks. It contains vitamin C, so using it long-term lightens your skin. Using it together with a toner also helps control the skin's water-oil balance. 2) LA ROCHE-POSAY - Nutritic Intense Riche It's really cheap and it spreads easily, emulsifying as soon as it touches the skin. It's moisturizing enough for combination-oily skin, but not for pure oily skin. It doesn't cause acne breakouts, it's really soothing for the skin, and it eases red and swollen skin during allergy flares. 3) LA MER - LA MER Moisturizing Cream I find this moisturizing cream to be most beneficial for combination-oily, acne-prone skin, but it needs to be emulsified between your palms before it's applied onto the skin. You can see an improvement in just three days. It's able to calm red and inflamed acne and acne marks, showing great results in maintaining skin stability.

A Beauty Advisor Recommended This Combination!👍👍👍
Aesop - B Triple C Facial Balancing Gel plus Aesop - Lucent Facial Concentrate is a combination recommended to me by a beauty advisor, both of which focus on soothing, balancing and regulating skin. They're also suitable for oily skin. Many say that B Triple C Facial Balancing Gel helps in lightening acne marks and minimizing the appearance of pores, but I haven't noticed it yet. However, I can clearly feel that my skin has become less shiny since using it. It has a gluey, gel-like texture and it feels great to use in summer as it's cooling and refreshing. However, it doesn't spread easily and feels like an impermeable glue-like layer that leads to congested skin. So, I'm really torn on whether it's a good product or a bad one. I heard that SHISEIDO - White Lucent Illuminating Micro-Spot Serum repairs damaged skin, but I have also failed to notice any effects. However, it has a refreshing texture and it's very moisturizing. The beauty advisor also recommended a method whereby you mix a few drops of the Lucent serum together with the Aesop - Blue Chamomile Facial Hydrating Masque to increase the moisturizing effect.

My New Routine With Aesop And Lancome! Is It Effective?🤔🤔
I wash my face with only water in the morning, omitting the facial cleanser. I have combo skin. 1) Aesop - B & Tea Balancing Toner It has a light yellow, slightly sticky texture and a pleasant tea scent. It's refreshing, easily absorbed, and it doesn't leave you with sticky skin. However, I found its effects to be just average, so I won't repurchase this product. I will finish this bottle though. 2) LANCÔME - Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum It contains alcohol and has a strong smell of alcohol as well, but it's easily absorbed and refreshing. When I use it during my morning skincare routine, it doesn't leave me with sticky skin and none of my follow-up skincare products ball up. My enlarged pores improved after a few bottles, so I will continue to repurchase it. 3) LANCÔME - Advanced Génifique Eye Cream This is my first bottle and I've already finished half of it. It's more moisturizing compared with ESTĒE LAUDER - Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex Synchronized Recovery. It's also absorbed quickly around the eyes, so there's absolutely no need to worry about milia! I will continue using it although it doesn't really improve my dark circles. 4)Aesop - Mandarin Facial Hydrating Cream It has a pleasant citrus scent and a moisturizing texture that doesn't leave the skin feeling greasy. It doesn't need to be emulsified before it's applied but I like to gently rub it between my warm palms before pressing it onto my skin for better absorption. It comes in such a big bottle, so I might not repurchase it because I'd like to try some new facial creams. Since we're talking about Aesop, I'd also like to talk about Aesop - B Triple C Facial Balancing Gel. It's more expensive and it claims to minimize enlarged pores. It has a thick, gel-like texture and is sticky when applied, but after using it, I really woke up with minimized pores. However, it's really too sticky, so I don't use it a lot and didn't manage to finish it in the 9 months after opening it, and now it has expired. Therefore, I will definitely not repurchase it.
