I get asked: What’s a good skin care product? a lot. It’s a kind of insane question, as everyone’s skin is different and has different needs, but I have found myself, for the sake of simplicity, advising Aesop B Triple C Facial Balancing Gel lately, which smells and feels a little, uh, strange, but which my skin is very very much enjoying. (Of course, you need sunscreen on top or in your tinted moisturiser afterwards.)
Aesop, a Melbourne based brand, has been around for over 20 years, and I’ve always loved their body products, (Qualia in Hamilton Island and The Prince Hotel in Melbourne both feature their hair/face/body products. Yes, they were pinched.) But it wasn’t til recently I gave their face stuff a nudge. My sister, who lives in the UK, still only uses Aesop after being there four years (it is a hugely successful brand overseas) and she’s got, like, all of London’s best organic/biodynamic skin care on offer.
I should warn you that if you love creams, thick, luxurious creams, this probably is not going to be sitting on your sink anytime soon.
