Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews
Skin Type:: Normal
Very over priced
I received a sample of this and was disappointed, mainly due to the strange tacky texture, it was not enjoyable to lather up and use like a normal cleanser. It removed my make up well enough but it was just too thick. As other reviews suggest this is perhaps one to persevere with as it does have a good set of ingredients but for the high price point I wouldn’t be swapping away from my Elemis cleanser oil or Eve Lom.
Yes this gel is very heavy and sticky, but not oily. If you mix it with other product, it will become a texture that applies easily. It's a bit extra work to do, so I give up re-purchase again cos you cant really tell the difference after mixing it with another product. And after all, the price is not cheap compare to other Aesop product
Best Use: Hydration
Skin Type:: Normal
Recommends this product: Yes
Product needs to be liquified a bit up before applying so I use fingertips to emulsify then apply to my skin on top of my serums. It’s different but really leaves my skin looking fresh and very glowy. Lots of compliments. Makeup goes on easily after. I am 55, have never injected anything into my skin, never written a review before.
Best Use: Hydration, Loss of Firmness, Anti-Aging
Not for me
I received a free sample with my recent order and was very excited to try it. Unfortunately I didn't like it. The gel is very thick and it was difficult to spread it. The instructions said that it should be massaged into skin, but it was impossible to massage such a thick and heavy gel. Also it was very sticky on my face and it had a heavy herbal scent.
Not convinced about it
I received this as a free sample. I was really excited to try it as I've read good things about the Aesop brand however, this one didnt feel right for me. The texture on the skin once applied it wasn't as smooth as expected and seeing the full price I think i'lll stick with other products I've been using.
