This is the most elegant product I have ever used on my face. The packaging, product consistency and results are all 10/10. I have sensitive skin and thought I would have an issue due to the fragrances this contains but I didn’t. This effectively cleanses, removing any residue, sunscreen or makeup; leaving your skin baby smooth. If you’re looking for an aesthetically pleasing, luxurious cleanser... stop here and buy this, you won’t be disappointed.

Skin type: Normal-combination (mild oily chin and nose) oilier in summer
Skin condition: blemish prone and easy to clog, some hyperpigmentation from older breakouts, relatively clear
Age: 30


This is a product I have been able to sample thanks to Aesop providing me with several sample sachets.

This cleansing oil I used as the first step in my cleansing routine. I always use an oil cleanser to remove my makeup, then follow up with a non-foaming cleanser. I also prefer to use oil cleansers that emulsify, as I find these easier to use for my skin and also are less likely to clog my skin.

The fragrance of the oil is very herbal, with a gorgeous lavender scent. I apply it directly to my dry face and massage. It does a great job in breaking down all my makeup, and I absolutely need that. I wear a full face of makeup everyday for work - I work in cosmetics retail as a makeup artist. The downside is that this stings my eyes quite badly. As I need a cleansing oil to remove my mascara and eye makeup, it's not an area I can really avoid. I have tried to be more gentle, and even put it on a cotton pad/cotton ball, but I get the same effect.

This oil emulsifies relatively easily but I do find the skin to have a bit of an oily finish afterwards. This doesn't really concern me all that much as I said, I always follow up with a double cleanse. This could be of consequence to someone who just wants a one and done cleanser.

Would I purchase the full size? Unfortunately I wouldn't. The price of the product is very high at $59 AUD, and it unfortunately stings my eyes. 

The cleanser does do the job, absolutely, but it's just not for me.

I love this stuff! I was sceptical to use an oil to clean my face, but I won’t go back. A small amount even removes makeup. My dry/sensitive skin feels refreshed and clean.
