Tried that Aesop one and didn't get on with it. Way too heavy IMO. Shame, as I love most of the other Aesop stuff.

Have gone back to tried and trusted Clinique M Gel.

My aesop routine:


Classic shampoo daily
Nurturing conditioner every 3 days
Parsley seed face cleanser daily, this is an essential product!
exfolient seeds, add this to the cleanser every 3 days.
Geranium leaf body wash daily. good smell


Moroccan Neroli shaving serum, essential best foam ever
Parsley seed clay mask, I use this after shaving (10 minutes)


Depending on my skin condition, either

Parsely seed toner + mandarin facial cream, this is when I am very dry faced, cream is quite heavy
B & T toner + B triple C balancing gel, this is for greasy days, the gel is an essential product
Parsely seed eye cream is ok, but very pricey!
lip balm good but a luxury
Deodorant is a novelty, I usually use dior homme

preparing to get slated Laughing out loud

The shampoo is great, that was my gateway drug.

I have tricky combination skin, very greasy prone to acne etc. The parsely seed cleanser is an amazing product, really strips the face back to the bone (lactic acid), but if you do that you have to hydrate the skin.

Conditioner could be anything but it is cheap, exfolient seeds, again could be anything but it does a good job on old skin / post shave.

toner again could be anything (minimum cold water), but I find it really reduces blocked pores.

face cream is ok, but nothing special, but the blancing gel is amazing, evens the complexion, soft to the touch, gives a glow, really recommend that, goes on like honey.

eye cream was an experiment, i prefer boots No7 for men becasue it is tinted, so helps with slight dark circles I get, but it doesn't give wrinkle control as good as the aseop eye cream, however it is very expensive!

Shaving cream is great, another gateway drug

rest of it is just novelty, bought the lip balm to make up an order over a set value to get a free gift.

So basically all that keeps my skin clear, smooth as it will go and protected, I have shit skin if I stop all that I get really bad break outs permanently, so I will pay anything to stop that.

your results may vary. I also like the design, style and background of the brand so like to use it where I get good results, but have drop it for daily use on certain areas becasue i get better from other things.

mixed in to the cleanser every three days, lasted a year so far.

no drink, no caffeine, no smoking, plenty of water, plenty of sleep.

I would recommend boots No7 eye cream

it has a tint so some coverage.

I have been using eye cream ever day for more than 10 years, totally critical, the rest you can leave.

going pro, obviously use this, but that is pushing it way beyond most peoples confort limits Laughing out loud
