Aesop Resurrection Hand BalmFriday, 3 October 2014
I should know by now that I cannot just 'walk into Aesop'. I have to buy from there - I don't care what, I just need everything. The last totally un-justifiable purchase was the Resurrection Hand Balm, which really, I needed like three months ago when my hands suffered terribly from the cold, dry weather and an unexpected allergic reaction. I didn't get it then, but I figured I should probably purchase it now, for 'next time'.
I don't really get dry hands, thankfully. It never hurts to look after them though, and I have no complaints slathering this on every night before bed. As per every damn Aesop product, this smells amazing. It's a really lovely mix of Lavender and Mandarin, and just that nice, earthy, natural smell. As someone who does not like the smell of Lavender, I am absolutely on board with this. Thumbs up from the Smell-a-phobe.
It also sinks in so well - it doesn't leave any greasy feeling which makes it great for on-the-go people or even just to have sitting on your computer desk at work. I generally just keep mine by my bedside though as I've never really felt the need to use this any other time, and it's just a nice little routine for me before bed.
It goes without saying also, that Aesop just have a knack for really well designed packaging. It's so nice and simple and doesn't scream 'commercial', and the little graphics nerd in me just loves that. Who doesn't love pulling out a product from their handbag and watching peoples eyes light up with a little 'oooh!'. I know I do!
