Aesop describes this beautiful concoction as,
"a concentrated nourishing treatment for extremely dry or distressed skin. Ten precious plant extracts in this concentrated botanical oil deliver potent doses of Vitamins E and A to nourish, relieve and deeply hydrate parched skin."
Aesop's Damascan Rose Facial Treatment is undoubtedly a very deeply nourishing and moisturizing face oil that will do wonders for dry and/or distressed skin, but it has also done incredible things for my normal/combination skin as well. It is a very concentrated, vitamin infused treatment oil that serves as a potent remedy for skin that needs intense hydration, but is so gentle and nourishing that my skin happily drinks it up and is left soft, supple, glowing, balanced, and very moisturized. I only need a couple of drops that I warm between my hands before massaging it into my slightly damp and warm face, neck and décolleté. It sinks in immediately and effortlessly, and it has an intoxicatingly hypnotic warm earthy rose scent that simply delights the senses. It is neither too rich for my skin, nor has it caused me to break out in the least. It just makes my skin look and feel amazing.
