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…

Know this is an old post, but noticed Mankind offers quite a few 25% discount codes once you've bought Aesop from them a couple of times.

Anyone on here taken Accutane before? Supposed to thin your hair a lot which worries me, apparently only temporary but some people say it's lasted forever.

It might clear your skin but it'll leave you bald and depressed. You'll probably end up comfort eating so you'll then be fat bald and depressed, I'd steer clear

?? I was on accutane but have more hair than my Dad and Grandads combined. I heard accutane can effect the liver too but I have the liver of a superhuman according to my doc, despite a 1 litre/Asahi/Kirin a day habbit for 10 years.

Have dry skin but, but could be unrelated. Use Sheisedo Men moisturiser, good shit!

What would be a good starter kit, in terms of products and brands, for someone who paid low to zero attention to the topic until now?

Got some Proraso shaving soap and balm and Merkur Platinum razor blades. All good and reasonable value.

Just recovered from a pretty severe bout of chicken pox and it looks like I'm gonna be left with a few crater scars on my face, along with quite a few red blemishes.

Am hoping they will fade/look better over time but can anyone recommend anything to help clear it up? Am guessing I'll be looking at the same type of products that people use for acne scarring.

Used bio oil on my kids after they had chicken pox. Couldn't tell you if the oil made any difference or not but the chicken pox blemishes pretty much disappeared.

Go to your GP and get something on prescription. Ask them what other products are safe to use in combination eg moisturiser or suncream

Best method of hair removal for back/shoulders?

Bird waxed it last time with some Veet strips and it did the job but resulted in some angry spots that lasted weeks. Should I go to a pro? Hair removal creams any good?

Not tried those but most Aesop stuff is really good. If you can get to one of their stores they will give you samples of anything you're interested in. They're normally generous with the samples too
