Aesop Fabulous Face Oil review

Today I'd like to review the last sample of Aesop face products I received with one of my purchases. The last one and in my opinion the worst one. 

Like all Aesop products the Fabulous Face Oil has top notch ingredients, most of them of natural origin and I suppose it may be beneficial for sensitive skin. But the thing is that the oil is the densest face oil I've tried, and believe me I've got some experience in that matter. It's just hard to distribute and massage on the face. I think even professional masseurs use lighter oils to rub on your back, and I 'm not sure whether massaging something that requires so much force and effort is actually beneficial for the skin on your face. 

The second thing is that this oil refuses to sink in, it just sits on the skin. I don't think anybody, even those of us with super dry skin would enjoy this. This means hair sticking to your face, grease in the hair, stains on the pillow or melting down make-up. 

And there's this horrible 'natural' herbal medicine smell.

No. Not only am I not getting this full size, but also I didn't manage to use this sample up, which is highly unusual in my case.  

Disclaimer: I received this product as a complimentary sample for my personal use and I'm not affiliated with any company. I am not paid to do this review and everything I said here is my personal opinion. 


  1. Wow a product must be pretty bad if you don't even finish a sample!
