Before opening this sachet I didn'y exactly know what to expect, but still, I was quite surprised when a substantial amount of clear oil flowed out. Of course I used too much first time, trying to save as much of this priceless oil as possible.
Aesop Parsley Seed Anti-oxidant Facial Treatment, like all facial oils I've used so far, felt nice on my skin and made it feel smooth. I have oily skin but use oils from time to time to offer my skin extra nourishment. Ittakes time to absorb, never absorbs fully, I'd never recommend it to anyone with oily skin to wear under make-up but might be a godsend for super dry skin types. For me, this is definitely a night-time treatment.
I found the scent repulsive at first, smells like the herbal medicine my mum used to offer me to relieve the stomachache I got quite regularly before going to school. This definitely made me feel uncomfortable. Fortunately this fragrance evaporated quickly, giving way to some other more pleasant, natural scent.
I believe this is a lovely facial oil for dry skin types. For me, this one is far too expensive to raise my interest, I'm not prepared to spend that much money on skincare..
