Aesop Fabulous Face Cleanser review : Aesop skincare is a very new addition to my regime, a few weeks back I purchased the Fabulous Face Cleanser and so far I have been loving it!
Normally, I’m not a foaming cleanser kinda gal; they tend to dehydrated my dry skin and leave me feeling tight and uncomfortable. I mostly stick to cream or oil cleansers, but sometimes I don’t feel ‘clean’ after using them. On days where I wear foundation, I now double cleanse using an oil cleanser to remove the make-up and the my Aesop cleanser to clean the skin. I was concerned that a two-cleanse process would dry my skin out further but it hasn’t. In face my skin appears less prone to congestion on the forehead than before, bonus!
The Fabulous Face Cleanser is low foaming, so it’s perfect if you’re looking for a more gentle cleanse. The gel itself is thick and spreads easily around the face, yet doesn’t build up a foamy lather like most liquid cleansers do. It doesn’t strip or dehydrate the skin, which makes it a perfect option for dry skin-types.
Aesop states that this cleanser is suitable for sensitive, combination or dry skin and I did not experience any irritation with the formulation. As with the rest of the Aesop range, it has a wonderful botanical scent including notes of bergamot rind, chamomile bud and rosemary leaf. If you’re not into herbal-type scents, I would recommend having a sniff in-store first as you may find it over powering.
The cleanser’s bottle is made form glass, so be very careful with it. The sales assistant gave me a pump to use, which makes it easy to dispense the correct amount.
The Fabulous Face Cleanser comes in two sizes: a 100ml for $31AUD and 200ml for $47AUD.
