It’s been more than a little while since my last post, and I’ve really been enjoying my hiatus from blogging. But as much as I’ve appreciated my time away, I feel compelled to write about my new found favorites, and there are many of them! A review of my top five picks from Aesop is a great place to start as I love their simple presentation and amazing aromas. Just a heads up for those of you who prefer 100% all natural, these are not. They are natural leaning however, and their products are free of synthetic colors, mineral oils, silicones, parabens and pearling agents. (*more on ingredients)
First up is the Aesop Geranium Leaf Scrub. I’m on my second tube of this scrubbing wonder, as I am always a sucker for anything geranium. This is a bit different than your average geranium scented product though, as the geranium leaf is more subdued and does not overwhelm the scrub. It plays nicely with the bergamot and mandarin peel, completing a refreshingly aromatic triad. As for performance, I was pleasantly surprised at what a luxurious lather this produces with such little product, so the tube pictured above lasted me about 3-4 months when used twice weekly. The pumice is very fine, but does a fantastic job of exfoliating. I really can’t recommend this enough!
