Beauty Products As Home Decor | Aesop.

* This post contains PR Samples
Aesop Products

It is no secret that I am a sucker for pretty packaging. I have to admit, that sometimes this is a bit unnecessary, especially when it comes to items that don't stay in their packaging for long, like cotton pads or a single-use sheet mask. However, there are some items where packaging should be important to everyone. And these are the beauty products which mostly live on our counters, right there for everyone to see. 

I like to keep my hand soaps, cremes, body lotions and even shampoo and conditioner bottles on my counter so they just have to fit the aesthetic of my bathroom or kitchen. One brand always does the trick for me: Aesop!

Over the past few months, I accumulated quite the Aesop collection. Their products are gorgeous and always work wonders. I am yet to find an Aesop scent that I don't like. And obviously in theme with this blogpost: Their understated and minimal packaging is everything. I know their products tend to be quite pricey. As much as I think they are worth their money, there is a simple trick if you love the Aesop aesthetic but don't want to buy a new expensive soap every month or so. In between re-buying my soaps, lotions and shampoos, I like to refill the bottles with less expensive alternatives. This way you can enjoy their packaging much longer!

Aesop Products

These are my go-to Aesop products right now: 

This shower gel does exactly what it claims: it is the best shower gel for an energizing start to the morning. I am not the biggest coriander fan, however, I don't find it smells anything like it. It simply is a fresh and boosting scent. I am in love. 

Recently my scalp has been acting up and it needed some re-balancing. This is when I saw Aesop does a re-balancing and equalising shampoo. So naturally, I had to try it. Since the past few weeks I have been using it, my scalp has calmed down dramatically. Again, it has a great and subtle scent, which simply smells like 'clean' (I hope that description makes sense to anyone..). 

Another one of my fave Aesop products. This Bodylotion is such a dream. My skin absorbs it very quickly with no sticky residue and yet it feels deeply hydrating. Exactly what I am looking for in a body lotion. The consistency is also not too thin or too thick, perfect in every way.

I have to admit I only bought this conditioner because it was the only one left in stock and I tend to use my shampoo and conditioner from the same brand. But oh my god, I am in love. As I don't really apply my conditioner on my roots I never got the concept of a volumising conditioner. Surely you need volume from the roots to make your hair appear more voluminous? Somehow this magic conditioner makes my hair feel so much thicker and yes, more voluminous. Even when I only apply it in the lengths of my hair. I will for sure buy it again! 

Have you tried Aesop products before? 
Let me know your faves.

  3. I love this! Products that are meant to last longer than one use should definitely be pretty. This doesn't even mean to waste more, because nice packaging can be reused or refilled.

  5. I LOVE Aesop's branding and appreciate they are vegan. However, I haven't purchased any products because I don't know the scents. Since COVID happened, I can't visit in-store to test some out in person since I'm high-risk.:( I will definitely look into their shampoo though because I like rotating shampoos. Thanks for sharing, love! I love that you're a sucker for aesthetics and packaging too! ;)

  7. I like using shampoo and conditioner from the same brand as well. I don't know why, but it just feels more complete. The packaging on Aesop's products are absolutely gorgeous.

    1. It is! Their products have the most amazing scents and formulas.. but I get that they also come with a certain price tag. SO maybe splurge on one once in a while and then simply refill them... another plus: that's great for the environment as well!
