The lotion is very thick, like sun cream, so use sparingly

Have tried my girlfriend's clarisonic, wouldn't recommend, made my skin dry as fuck. Think it's more suited to women scrubbing off make up than men's skin. Would maybe be ok as a once a week thing instead of using a face scrub, but I could never use it daily.

Anyone know where I can get the large Malin + Goetz rum Body wash? the large bottle is supposed to be new but they had it in St Martins Lane hotel a couple of months ago, I can't find it on line anywhere though.

Anything actually work for spots? Coming out in loads lately on my neck. Kinda like pimples. Tried everything over the counter. Bought something called Benzac AC online after reading reviews and it hasn't done anything Sad

Also bonus points. Got terrible bags/red eyes (no albino). Drink on average 4 litres of water a day. Get 8+ hours sleep. Could too much computer be causing them? At a loose end here Puzzled

Quinoderm from a pharmacy for the spots.

Rest sounds like stress or an allergy/allergic reaction/bad diet/you on meth?.

What are people carrying in their gym bags? Seems to be taking most of my showers in the gym/at work lately so would appreciate pointers towards shampoos/soaps that are decent but also relatively portable.

Currently using some Lush shampoo bar and another soap bar in little tins. Very compact but it's not great stuff and staying in a tin all the time is making the soap go sort of weird.

Cheapest place to get Aesop stuff at the moment? Anywhere online? Already know what I need to get.

You'll be hard pushed to get it discounted, as a lot of sites put them on the exclusions lists when they release discount codes, such as Mankind etc. On that note sometimes Mankind offer free next day delivery for Aesop stuff, so it's worth signing up to their newsletters in that sense.

The only time I've seen their range reduced was during the Selfridges Black Friday discount day.

Personally, I've used Aesop the past three years, facial wash, toner, hydrating cream and face mask. It's okay but not great. Especially as I'm getting older my skin is getting drier and their products don't just cut it.

Went on a skin care shop with the missus last month (used her as an excuse) and went to various counters to try out their products, Clinque Men, Kiehl's, Biotherm Homme, Shiseido Men, SK-II. I was lucky and found Kiehls met all my needs and the most natural out of all the other brands, so I decided to purchase their facial wash, toner, cream and moisturising gel.

If you haven't already done this, I definitely recommend doing it, especially as Aesop isn't the cheapest brand out there…

Cheers for that. It's actually for a gift for my girlfriend. We use the geranium stuff anyway, but wanted to try out a few others. Will have a look around. Cheers for the info.

still quite like Aesop, especially their Negroli shaving serum and the Coriander seed body wash.
But as others have pointed out it's not cheap.

Picked up some Baxters of California from GoodHood that I've been trying. Both the Body Wash and the Face Wash and have been impressed by both.
Retaw looks good too but even pricier than Aesop. Hopefully the missus will top up the stocking with some Retaw bits…

I want some bits for the bird, probably dermalogica. Where's best in terms of getting free gifts etc, big department store counters?

Not just for birds. Dermalogica Special Cleansing gel is the bollocks. Use the Daily Microfoliant twice a week too. Nothing I've used comes close to those two. I use their toner and moisturiser aswell. Worth every penny. Get testers and if you like them buy salon sizes. Works out cheaper than all that Clinique and Clarins shite.
