I was first introduced to skincare brand Aesop by a friend when my winter hands were in desperate need of hydration. From the depths of her oversized handbag, she promptly produced the most nourishing, sweet-smelling hand cream I’ve ever used and believe me my hands get v. bad in winter. Their botanically based skin, hair and body products for him and her include high-quality plant-based ingredients and non-botanical elements such as anti-oxidants so it’s packed with the good stuff. Most excitingly Aesop now produces an Animal Wash, a mild skin and fur wash, which gently cleanses and deodorises their coat leaving them smelling fresh with a mix of mint and citrus notes. For you, try their A Rose By Any Other Name Body Cleanser, a beautifully fragrant formulation containing skin-softening botanical extracts and Rose Petal oil.
