I’m a fan of oils in general! I like to use them on my face, body and hair, and during each cold season I try something new.
At the beginning of this Winter I decided to test the Aēsop Fabulous Face Oil.
I’ve been interested in this Australian beauty brand for a while because I like the concept and I’ve only red positive things about it.
It was established in Melbourne in 1987 and its objective is to formulate skin, hair and body care products of the finest quality based on plants and laboratory-made ingredients.
Besides promoting beauty products, the brand also supports art; each and every shop is unique and looks like an art gallery.
The Fabulous Face Oil comes in a nice dark glass bottle that protects the product from light; it includes a glass pipette dropper which makes the quantity to be used each time, easily measurable.
The formula is very light and it’s a pleasure to use this oil because it’s not greasy at all.
I could see positive results from the first application and after a few weeks, the oil really made a difference to my complexion.
The smoothing effect is truly impressive. Some of my fine lines have completely disappeared and the skin is refreshed and looks younger.
It’s the perfect product for a massage!
For example: In the evening after I remove makeup and cleanse, I heat 8 to 10 drops in my hands and give my face, neck and décolleté areas a gentle and relaxing massage in order to help the oil absorb better into the tissue.
I usually go for an effleurage because this basic massage movement calms me down while stimulating the circulation.
What I don’t like is the VERY strong perfume!
I usually prefer face products without any perfume and that’s one reason why I cannot use the Fabulous Face Oil each evening; however, I manage to use it up to 4 times/ week because of the very positive effect it has on my complexion.
The product has a very sweet and floral aroma (it basically smells like Ylang-Ylang) and the perfume doesn’t go away after the product penetrates the skin.
The Fabulous Face Oil doesn’t clog the pores, it’s non-sticky, non-greasy, hydrates to perfection, smoothes fine lines and has a slight decongestant effect.
I recommend it to those of you who have normal, combination and/ or dry skin.
I wouldn’t recommend the Fabulous Face Oil to someone with sensitive skin because this strong fragrance could cause irritation.
Price: €47/ 25ml.
Please let me know if you like to use face oils in your skincare routine! I would also be very grateful, if you would share your favorite oils here!
