Aesop manages to be both beautiful and practical, a hybrid of old school and new tech disciplines. The bottles are brown glass, because it protects product from degrading UV rays allowing them to use fewer preservatives. The range is balanced between nature & technology because that's where they've found the best results, the fact that the botanicals make it smell divine and the bottles look beautiful is a happy bi-product of being focused on the best strategy to create beautiful skin.

How to use
Pat a few drops onto your face and neck before you go to bed and massage in lightly with your fingertips. Use as a booster serum under your daily moisturiser for dry skin.
First of all - the smell. Second of all - the feeling of it doing something and really quick absorbtion. Third of all - the effect. My skin felt moisturised and I woke up with a much healthier looking complexion. My skin: dry with occasional breakouts. I love me some facial oil every evening and this is great. I got it as a sample, but am looking forward to buying it full size.
For ylang ylang lovers only
This oil feels amazing but the ylang ylang smell is overpowering for me. I dislike the smell strongly and struggle to use this, be aware!
This is a nice face oil but nothing spectacular. Not a repurchaser for me and would not replace either my Oskia super 16 serum or MV rose plus booster. Also found it did not absorb amazingly well.
I love this serum as it soaks into skin like a dream and smells divine. I do need a moisturiser over the top in colder months but for summer it's enough. It certainly does not aggravate spots or blemishes and it lasts for ages.
Skin type - Normal to dry, occasionally oily on cheeks. Breakouts (from hormones or sunblock) on cheeks, occasionally.
This is an unbelievably good face moisturiser. I use it after a variety of different cleansers (depending on how much or little make up I wear during the day), follow with a spritz of rose-water and then use this. My skin is always fantastic in the morning.
In the depths of winter, because of the extra cold, I follow this up with a night cream. Otherwise, it's absolutely fine.
Not for everyone but very calming & hydrating
This is my ride-or-die facial oil when I'm on long-haul flights and it nourishes, soothes and smells utterly gorgeous. Because it's packed full of essential oils, fragrance-free lovers would find this antagonising. It's slightly greasy and takes awhile before it gets fully absorbed but the effects I see next morning are worth it.
Broke Me Out
My skin is used to facial oils and react well to them. However this caused me severe breakouts which took a while to calm down. This is going in the trash.

Beautiful, light and super nourishing
Aesop have lots of ‘staple’ products – this is just one of many. Facial oils would be my number one choice if stranded on a desert island. This is beautiful, light and super nourishing.
