Aesop Review: Body Balm | Toner | Cleanser

Introduced to me by a close friend,  Aesop remains one of the best brands in the skin, and body care  brands.  Although,  Aesop makes a wide variety of products for the skin, body, home, and hair products. I got to try a substantial number of their products.

Established in Melbourne, the brand carries high quality products. I love that the products are plant based. This means it’s compatible with my skin and smells amazing while its revitalizing my skin through nature. I appreciate that the products are unisex, and can be also used for both day and night. This makes keeping a skin routine easier at home and especially while traveling. It also makes sharing skincare with men easy.  My roommates and I love trying out each other’s products and trade them as well.

Today, I am reviewing three awesome products by Aesop:  a body balm, facial cleanser and toner.

Rind Concentrate Body Balmcesthoa aesop 2

The Rind Concentrate Body Balm is everything ! This is seriously one of the best body balm / body lotions that has touched my skin ( probably the best ) . The first thing you will notice about the Rind Concentrate Body Balm is how thick, and luxurious it is.  It has a nice creamy texture that lathers nicely over the skin. Since its concentrated, a little amount of balm will cover a lot of the skin.

Next, you won’t help  but notice that you smell so fresh like  a citrus platter on a summer’s day.  That’s because you do! The citrus based formula is infused with pink grapefruit, orange rind, and lemon.  Using this balm revitalizes my skin in the harsh winter months. This is a great year round balm. That is rich for dry skin in the winter months, while simultaneously light enough for the summer time.  

Fabulous Face Cleanser

The Fabulous Face Cleanser is a mild and light face wash that is great for anyone with sensitive skin like myself. It’s gentle on the eyes  and has an almost gel like  consistency. This cleanser is great for the morning because it’s calming and fresh, just enough to wake you up . You can also use it with the Clarisonic brush because it has a similar consistency  to the Clarisonic cleanser brand. Olive derived, the cleanser doesn’t leave your skin dry or itchy. It helps balances your skin. I would recommend having at least one other face wash in your skincare regimen. As this is a mild cleanser it does not remove all the excess makeup and oils from a long day.

B & Tea Balancing Toner

The B & Tea Balancing Toner has a floral scent that reminds me of Jasmine or flower tea. It’s a great toner for removing dirt and oils while it hydrates your skin and reduces your pores at the same time. The toner contains Provitamin B5 and green tea extract that proves to be very well balanced, not drying out the skin and remaining fresh. The toner is also rather concentrated ( to me at least ) so you won’t need a lot of liquid in one cotton round to clean the face. It’s also alcohol free so it’s great for all skin types as well.

Thanks for stopping by. Let me know if you highly recommend trying out any other Aesop products.
