I'm not a holiday set kinda person, they're all very purdy and good value, but I'm of the mindset, why buy a set that has something I don't need? and in most sets, I probably only ever want 1 or 2 of the items. That's what I thought anyway, until last christmas, when I had finished my first bottle of a hydrating cream that I love and needed to get more and well, this set had it all.
The set is Aesop by the way, can't believe I forgot to mention that. The cream I'm talking about is the Mandarin hydrating cream, which I use as a day cream and is the best thing I've ever bought for my face.
The ultra cool bag, I'm currently using it as a shoe bag for traveling.
Oh yea, the set is called 'Accelerating Universe' and it comes in a plain black toiletry bag, which is fine by me, I already have a big flowery one that's quite loud.
..with a cool quote. I'll have to go look up who Carl Sagan is.
and the 3 items. from left: amazing face cleanser, mandarin hydrating cream and purifying facial.
The facial is a scrub basically, and I adore that the beads actually feel like beads and that they're doing something. It also feels very refreshing, I like it.
The face cleanser has a smell I'm not really fond of, but it doesn't stay on the face for long, so that's ok. My morning ritual is to use a cleanser than the hydrating cream, I personally skip the toner step in the mornings.
Only thing out of there I wouldn't buy again is the cleanser but it's Aesop so I'm happy to give anything else a try.
What Aesop item can't you live without?
