Botanical Skincare

Posted 6 December 2011

My skincare routine is pretty simple; cleanse, moisturise and a bit of eye cream. I don’t wear mascara (unless I’m going out) so removing my makeup usually requires very little effort. I used to be a fan of face-masks, but lately that routine has fallen by the wayside. I’ve been using Aesop for a few years, ever since I was introduced to it at the WORLD Beauty Store where I occasionally worked during Uni. Although it was the pretty packaging that drew me in, it only took me a few squirts of the hand balm to become completely addicted. I’m not going to lie, I do love seeing all the amber bottles lined up in my bathroom, that’s not what keeps me going back. The Violet Leaf Hair Balm is easily at the top of my list. My hair is fine, blonde and has a mind of it’s own, and this magic balm has worked miracles on many an occasion. It’s not greasy like a serum, but just as powerful. The Mandarin Facial Hydrating Cream is equally as amazing. The citrus smell is delicious, and it’s both hydrating and lightweight, making it perfect year round. The range does cost more than anything you’ll pick up at the supermarket, but it’s not too extreme either. And Aesop’s philosophy is just as beautiful as their branding; it’s the real deal.

I love their creams-in-a-tube! Perfect for throwing in your bag, unlike a classic jar!
