10 Fan-Favorite Aesop Products to Try
See what the hype is all about with these popular finds.
(SPOT.ph) In case you haven’t already heard, Aesop finally opened its first-ever branch in Manila—located at Greenbelt 5, Makati City, to be exact. If you're not already familiar with it, here's a quick intro: the brand first became known for their handsoap, which has been described as "the chicest method of killing germs." The distinctive black, white, and amber bottles first started popping up in fancy restaurants and hotels, quickly gaining a faithful following.
Established in 1987, the Melbourne-based beauty brand strives to create products of high quality, sourcing plant-based and laboratory-made ingredients around the world. With every branch they open, they make sure every location is designed to fit the culture and history, making each store look unique and well worth the visit.
They’re also hugely popular online because of their clean, minimalist aesthetic, which you’ll also notice in the unmistakable packaging.
Check out some of Aesop's most well-loved products:
Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm (P1,400/75 mL, P4,450/500 mL)
Widely considered a classic among Aesop’s products, this hydrating hand balm promises supple and deeply nourished cuticles and basically any other rough patches on your skin. Its formula has a greaseless finish that sinks quickly into the skin, and a blend of mandarin rind, cedar atlas, and rosemary leaf adds a subtle but lovely scent.
Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Serum (P3,500)
Another cult-favorite among skincare enthusiasts is the Parsley Seed line, especially the Anti-Oxidant Serum. It’s perfect for those with combination or oily skin, as it contains botanical extracts like grape and parsley seed, which hydrate and fortify the skin. It’s best to pair this with a day or night cream so you get the full skincare benefits.
Arrival Kit (P1,750)
Perfect for jetsetters or those who are looking to try Aesop’s product staples, the Arrival Kit comes with four hair and body products (50 mL each) that promise to soothe and refresh even the weariest traveler. Wash the long-haul flight away with the Classic Shampoo and Conditioner, invigorate with the aromatic Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser, and return some much-needed moisture into your skin with the Rind Concentrate Body Balm.
Reverence Duet (P5,750)
Up your hand-care game with this duo kit that claims to thoroughly cleanse and hydrate. Each set comes with two 500-mL bottles: the Reverence Aromatique Hand Wash, which contains lactic acid and finely milled pumice for mild exfoliation; and the Reverence Aromatique Hand Balm, which has a non-greasy formula and skin-softening ingredients.
This aluminum-free spray deodorant is formulated with zinc ricinoleate, which kills bacteria that causes unwanted body odor, and a fragrant blend of essential oils like lemongrass, tea tree, and witch hazel, that are also naturally antimicrobial. It also comes in a convenient and lightweight packaging so you can easily stash this in your gym bag and stay fresh after an intense workout session.
Post-Poo Drops (P1,250)
Save yourself from the post-relieving embarrassment and snag Aesop’s bathroom deodorizer— sans the strong, chemical smell of typical air fresheners. Just dispense a few drops into the toilet bowl post-flush, and you’ll have a bathroom that smells clean and citrus-y for its next occupant.
Redemption Body Scrub (P1,700)
For extra-soft and deeply nourished skin, the Redemption Body Scrub is an opaque gel with finely milled pumice and refreshing bamboo stem, which gently sloughs away at dead skin without redness or irritation. Pro tip: Use this product to properly prepare your skin for moisturizer.
Rejuvenate Intensive Body Balm (P1,700/120 mL, P4,450/500 mL)
Perfect for super parched skin, this body balm is packed with deeply hydrating ingredients that work best on areas like your elbows and knees. You’ll especially love its warm, woodsy scent of vanilla, sandalwood, and tangerine.
Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser (P1,250/200 mL, P2,100/500 mL)
This multi-use body cleanser has a light gel formula made with a refreshing, citrus-y blend of geranium, mandarin, and bergamot rind oils. And when we say multi-use, we mean it! You can add a small dollop on a sponge during your shower, a teaspoon-full for your next relaxing bubble bath, or simply use it as a hand wash.
Quench: Classic Skin Care Kit (P5,100)
This skin-care kit is curated specially for dry skin types and comes with three products designed to inject much-needed hydration with every step. The Purifying Facial Cream Cleanser is a mild, non-foaming cleanser that is best massaged into damp skin then rinsed off. After cleansing, douse a cotton pad with the B & Tea Balancing Toner; its gentle, alcohol-free formula helps prep the skin to fully absorb moisture. Finally, the Camellia Nut Facial Hydrating Cream provides maximum hydration that instantly sinks into the skin, leaving your face soft and supple.
Aesop is at G/F Greenbelt 5, Legazpi Street, Makati City.
