It took me long enough to review this one. To date, I’m still using the Aesop Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Eye Serum. It has been probably 6 months since I first used it or probably longer. I want to review it sooner, but I want to see how it wage against other eye cream/serum that I had. I have to say, this is by far my favourite eye products of all time next to Menard Embelir and Grown Alchemist.
I’m indefinitely partial when it comes to Aesop (and Grown Alchemist), both brands are lovely and hailed from my favourite cities in the world: Melbourne. It smells like home. Melbourne is filled with organic products hence most of the corners of the city smell like organic product.
This eye serum texture feels like oil, but if I remember correctly the Sales Assistant said it’s not an oil serum. Fair enough because it doesn’t feel oily upon application and it absorbs fast. It’s filled with vitamin A, B, C (Magnesium Ascorbic Phosphate) and E (Tocopherol). It promises to hydrate, protect and nurture the skin around the eyes. Nothing too fancy.
The price however is quite fancy at around £55 or AU$81 for 15 ml. Quite something isn’t it? It’s also much pricier in this part of the world: Singapore and Malaysia, because we have none in Indonesia.

It took me forever to review these two, Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Serum and Oil Free Hydrating Serum, I know. But it’s all worth the wait because I’ve been using these two for probably more than four months? I use them less nowadays and it’s always a good experience when I’m using these two.
These two products are actually my first batch of Aesop and made me instantly head over heels with the brand, which no wonder I ordered three more products afterward which was Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque which I’ve previously reviewed here, Parsley Seed Antioxidant Eye Serum which you all see so often on my Skincare Arsenal post and Fabulous Face Oil that I’ve yet opened.
So what do I think of them? Continue reading “Gel-based moisturisers from Aesop”
A deep cleansing mask is always a huge part of my skincare arsenal. I used to use Glamglow Supermud and Youthmud, they did the job fine. But as always, I want to try something new. I want to see whether there’s something out there that is better for my skin than those two. Because those two seems to be tad drying on my skin. I like Aesop, it reminds me of Melbourne a lot. There’s not a day goes by without me missing that city. So Aesop feels like a little bit of home. Also, I love their Parsley Seed line. No surprise there that I picked up this Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque.
It’s a great deep cleansing and refreshing mask for every skin type, and as I quote from the website, especially sensitive and dry skin. Most deep cleansing mask seems to cater to oily skin so this is a great news for yours truly who have a really dry skin.

Kalau mengikuti akun Instagram saya, pasti 2 minggu belakangan ini udah bosen, ya, “dengerin” saya ngeluh masalah jerawatan. Untuk seseorang yang jarang banget jerawatan this is major! Nggak mungkin lah, kalau nggak pernah bermasalah kulitnya. Begitu pula saya. Biasanya sih kalau PMS adalah satu atau dua. Tapi kali ini, begitu hilang satu muncul satu lagi. Gede-gede pula! Sebelnya, jerawat yang timbul bukan jerawat yang ada matanya, tapi jerawat batu. Ini sebenarnya kesalahan saya sendiri, sih.
Awalnya karena mudik ke Malang. Pas mudik ke Malang saya tahu betul kalau di Malang sedang dingin, around 20 degrees. Nah, di antara itu saya sempat ke Blitar, di mana udaranya tidak sama seperti Malang tapi lebih berdebu. Saya sudah siap tempur. Bawa segala macam deep cleansing mask dan juga siap sedia Sunday Riley Artemis dan History of Whoo Soon Hwan Essence karena kedua produk tersebut paling ampuh membantu menyeimbangkan kondisi kulit saya.
Sayangnya, begitu balik ke Jakarta saya mulai lalai dan enak-enakan. Padahl udah di Jakarta sedang panas-panasnya. Yang terjadi adalah dua minggu kemudian mulai deh muncul satu persatu jerawat! Yang paling bikin bete adalah jerawat batu ini sakit banget dan ganggu karena gede banget. Jadinya saya jadi gatel pencet-pencet dan jadilah berbekas dan merusak jaringan kulit *sigh*.
Anyway below are the skincare that I’m using in the morning to tackle this problem.

Being surrounded by beauty junkie alike from FD means that I’m no short of offers to get me beauty stuff from overseas. The problem is, this makes me short on cash *gah!*. On my friend’s recent visit to Australia, she managed to get me these loot. I’m so excited of these natural goodies, which the Aussies (and extend that to the Kiwis) are known for. If the French have Pharmacy, then the Aussie have Chemist. It’s loaded with affordable skincare and mostly dominated by homegrown beauty product that is either organic or natural. They’re also serious when putting those labels. On top of that, compared to the Western Hemisphere products, the price tag is much much more reasonable.
See the description after the jump.
