I always have a soft spot for Aesop’s skincare.
The ones that work for me (the handcreams, Fabulous Face Oil) perform superbly.
The brand’s latest Petitgrain Reviving Body Gel is a new favourite in my bodycare regime.
This hydrating gel is cool to the touch, especially on sun-kissed skin.
It is lightweight, does not leave behind a sticky finish when absorbed (you get a satiny smoothe-feel instead), and smells of lovely fresh-citrusy-floral petitgrain.
The formula contains aloe vera, minty panthenol,grapefruit and lemon to soothe sunburnt skin.
But try not to even get your skin to the sunburnt level please. Wrinkles and pigmentation cannot be reversed.
Plus, Aesop has reformulated its Protective Body Lotion SPF 50 so it is less thick and cloying.
It feels so light, I would use it on my face too.
Packed with the usual skincare goodies (that you would expect from Aesop) , this moisturising sunscreen is formulated to provide up to eighty minutes’ water resistance, says the brand. It also contains ingredients rich in Vitamin E to protect skin from the sun.
Contains spearmint leaf oil, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, lemon peel oil, avocado oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba seed oil, and soybean oil.
