Aesop Paesley Seed Facial Cleansing Oil review

Aesop Parsley Seed Facial Cleansing Oil

I love cleansing oils and I use them daily to remove my make-up effortlessly, so I jumped at the opportunity to try a high-end one. 

At first I was struck by a weird method of use. Normally you slap some oil onto your face, massage gently, rinse with water (at this point most oils turn to white lotions) and your make-up together with the remains of the oil are gone! In case of Aesop Parsley Seed Facial Cleansing Oil you need to mix it with water in your palms to form emulsion and then massage over your face and neck. Fair enough. It doesn't matter at which point you emulsify the product, does it?

But what I clearly didn't like about the oil is that in spite of the fact that I emulsified it at first, it felt heavy and greasy on my face. It didn't go on very well. Instead of removing my eye make-up it smudged it and turned into gooey mess. What's more after rinsing this left horrible greasy film all over my face which I had to get rid of using a gel cleanser. It felt as if I'd used some edible oil from my kitchen on my face.

Apart from that, like all products within the range the oil smells like a herbal medicine, which I don't find particularly appealing. You can eventually get used to it, but it's not a pleasant experience.
