I have fallen in love

Oh yes i have. I’ve wanted to write this post for a few weeks but thought i should really give it a good 6 weeks before reviewing the Aesop Parsley Seed Anti Oxidant Serum, it just incase after my initial love for it my skin broke out. I am glad to say this hasn’t happened.

So i was in SpaceNK in Manchester looking for a bronzer, how is it when you go looking for a specific item you always come out with something completely different. It’s safe to say this happened to me. So i was in there looking for a bronzer and saw a couple but nothing that bowled me over. So i was mooching about – a dangerous thing to do in SpaceNK when i spotted tucked around a corner the Aesop products and i remembered from Vivianne Does MakeUp’s YouTube video that this stuff is AMAzing. So i asked the lady what she would recommend for my tired dull looking skin and she said Aesop Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Serum.

I use this at night after i have cleansed and toned I put about 3 drops on my hands rub it in to my palms first then massage in all over my face and under eye area. It’s a thick consistency and smells very fresh and clean. I like how the scent is very subtle. My skin drinks this stuff up in seconds it’s mad. After applying it my face feels a little tacky, i leave it to absorbe for about 10 mins then my face feels beyond soft.

This serum is so nourishing my skin is for sure brighter and my redness has died down too. As i said i like to use it at night as i have more time to let it soak in before applying moisturiser.

The packaging is also so nice. I am a sucker for packaging and typeface. This glass bottle feels like an old apocrathy bottle with its pipett dispenser too. The glass bottle is so luxurious as is the product itself. I feel all grown up and like i am putting something really healthy and beneficial on to my face.

I can’t say enough good things about it. I have used a few serums and this Aesop one has achieved the best results on my skin. You get a very big 100ml bottle  and i only use 3 drops each night so its going to last along time. Which makes me happy as i get anxiety about it running out as it’s £43 a bottle and i will have to repurchase it and live on super noodles for a month :o)

I am a huge fan and will be trying out a few more things from their range. If you can give me any suggestions that would be great.

Just one thing. I know this carries quite a high price tag but i have been using it for 6 weeks and have barley used any. It really is good value for money and i couldn’t imagine my skincare routine without it.

  3. Lovely pictures. I rarely use serums but this looks great, what a glowing review! Wish I had a Space NK near me!

    You’re right, its dangerous to mooch around in Space NK. It can cause serious damage to your bank card. But when you end up with gorgeous Aesop products then all can be forgiven. Seems like you’ve got on extremely well with this product. Parsley seed is an amazing ingredient for skin because of its high vitamin a and c content. Its great when you find a product you can’t live without. Will you be trying out more of the range?
