I love this Australian brand and simply adore the packaging.
Please share some reviews,recommendations, experiences or questions etc.

My personal favourite is their Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm

The new Aesop frags suck but there used to be one called Workplace Revitalizing, or some such thing. It was clementine, sandalwood and vanilla. TDF! It came in a rollerball- perfect for stashing in a deskdrawer or pocket for a pick-me-up on the fly.

Anyone here using their Mandarin Facial Hydrating Cream? I'm looking for a good moistrurizer and it seemed good in their description but I've read so many mixed reviews. Some say it does wonders, others say it smells far too strong and had bad effects on their skin.

i've used it in the past. loved the feel of it, but if you have even the slightest chance of getting oily, this will definitely exacerbate that . the smell is gorgeous, imo. also - depends where you live. if you're in Paris, Thefrenchy, then i would think that the density of this cream, coupled with the environmental stressors in the air there could easily bring out an oily shine. but - if you're somewhere north, where the air is more dry and less humid, AND your skin is more on the normal-dry side, then yes. this is awesome. definitely test it first, though. just to make sure you're not gonna get a reaction to any of the natural ingredients.

I don't use the Mandarin one but I use the Primose Facial Hydrating Cream which sinks into the skin easily and is lightweight but still moisturising depending on your skin, mine is normal and depending on weather combination to dry.

Probably best to get samples, so far I've come across friendly customer service at Aesop and they're more than happy to do hand some out.

Thank you, guys!

I'll probably try to get my hands on a sample, but judging by what happycanadian said it probably won't suit me. My skin is more on the oily side and I'm moving to Paris in a month...

Mrsjamesdean, I'll try to see if this one seems more appropriate, thanks!

I've used the parsley seed face cleanser but it was a little heavy for my combination skin.

The parsley seed serum, however, is brilliant.
