collection of Aesop products

Combining botanical ingredients and advanced technology, Aesop is everything you’d imagine a pro {skin care} brand to be, and more. Offering everything from iconic hand washes to soothing skin care, each product is created with the finest quality in mind.

What sets Aesop apart from other brands is that their focus isn’t on anything ‘anti’, so you won’t find any products promising anti-ageing or anti-acne. Instead, this forward-thinking beauty brand strives to complement a balanced lifestyle, helping you to grow old gracefully and love the skin you’re in.

As if that isn’t enough in itself, Aesop’s sleek and sustainable bottles will transform your bathroom into an Instagrammable haven that’ll be the envy of all your followers. With the help of Cult Concierge expert {Kimberley}, we’ve put together this guide to {Aesop’s} best body and skin care products. Enjoy, beauties!

{Aesop Reverence Aromatique Hand Wash}

If you’re not a fan of overpowering smells, then this is the hand wash for you. With its fresh herbal blend of vetiver root, bergamot and petitgrain, Aesop’s Reverence Hand Wash has a comforting earthy smell that will make you feel at one with nature. This gel also contains microscopic pumice grains which work to gently exfoliate and smooth, leaving hard-working hands feeling soft and replenished.

 

{Aesop Resurrection Rinse-free Hand Wash}

Combining practicality with beauty, Aesop’s Resurrection Rinse-free Hand Wash looks just as gorgeous as it feels. Since it’s rinse-free (think of it as hand sanitiser reimagined), you don’t need a sink to use this product, meaning it can be your buddy at work, travel and beyond without any hassle. Unlike your average hand sanitiser, Aesop’s version is lovely and hydrating, and smells divinely of mandarin rind, rosemary leaf and cedarwood atlas - sanitising never smelt so good!

 

{Aesop Geranium Leaf Rinse-Free Hand Wash}

With its non-drying, alcohol-based formulation, Aesop’s Geranium Leaf Rinse-Free Hand Wash promises to be gentle on your hands while leaving them smelling utterly delish. Expect a fresh, citrusy scent of geranium leaf, mandarin and bergamot rind that will follow you around like a fragrance! You won’t need access to a sink with this rinse-free hand wash; simply apply it like a hand gel and leave it to do its thing.

 

BEST AESOP HAND CREAM

Soothe and protect your hands with deliciously smooth and buttery {hand creams} by Aesop. Here are a couple of our favourites:

 

{Aesop Reverence Aromatique Hand Balm}

It’s easy to neglect your hands during day-to-day life, so give them a well-deserved treat in the form of this ultra-nourishing hand balm. Scented with the same delicious earthy aroma as its sister hand soap, this is the perfect hand balm for those who want silky smooth skin without any overpowering smells. Slather onto dry hands (and feet) before bed and wake up feeling completely revived!

 

{Aesop Geranium Leaf Body Balm}

Ultra-nourishing and hydrating, Aesop’s Geranium Leaf Body Balm is the skin care equivalent of a warm, full-body hug. Lovingly made with a blend of geranium leaf, mandarin and bergamot rind, this freshly scented body balm smells good enough to eat and feels incredible on your skin.
