Aesop Fabulous Face Oil | Review

 Purchased by Me (Affiliate Links)

Aesop Fabulous Face Oil is a lovely daily moisturizing beauty oil that was formulated with normal, dull, sensitive, reactive or congested skin types in mind. While I find it quite nourishing for my combination skin, I do think that drier skin types would prefer the richer formula that their Damascan Rose Facial Treatment provides (reviewed here).

According to Aesop,

Nine carefully selected botanicals deliver exceptional hydrating and fortifying benefits to detoxify, smooth and balance normal or patchy skin, with a non-greasy finish. Suited to all seasons, cities and skin types.

This much-adored facial oil works on all skin types, but is especially good to use if you have sensitive, congested and reactive skin. The juniper berries, jasmine and ylang ylang make this natural serum smell stunning, a lovely boost in the morning, for a facial massage or as a night treatment. Only a few drops are needed and when used daily with your regular moisturiser it softens, hydrates and detoxifies patchy skin and leaves a matte, non-greasy finish.
Fabulous Face Oil is aptly named because it really and truly is fabulous. It is lightweight, fast absorbing and utterly silky in texture. I apply a couple of drops to warm and damp freshly cleansed skin, and then marvel as it sinks in immediately leaving behind only an ethereal and healthy glow. My skin is left indescribably soft, smooth and lusciously hydrated. If my skin is at all irritated, this lovely elixir quickly calms and balances it. On the rare occasions that I have a break out, Fabulous Face Oil eliminates the redness and the pimple(s) with remarkable efficacy and speed.
Fabulous Face Oil boasts a gorgeous blend of oils, but it is the earthy warmth of Ylang Ylang that rushes to the foreground to soothe the senses. It is warm, calming and luscious, but it does fade a few minutes after it absorbed into the skin.
Ingredients: Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Camellia Japonica Seed Oil, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Cananga Odorata Flower Oil, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ Oil, Juniperus Communis Fruit Oil, Corylus Avellana (Hazel) Seed Oil, Tocopherol, Jasminum Officinale (Jasmine) Oil, Linalool,Benzyl Benzoate, d-Limonene, Eugenol, Farnesol, Benzyl Salicylate, Geraniol, Benzyl Alcohol.
Overall Assessment: This truly is a fabulous face oil! If you have oily to combination skin and have long feared trying a face oil, then this is a great one to consider. Likewise, Fabulous Face Oil will do wonders for sensitive or irritable skin types. However, while it can be used on most skin types, I don't think that drier skin types will find it moisturizing enough for their skin. Furthermore, if you aren't a fan of the earthiness of Ylang Ylang, then this probably isn't the oil for you, but the aroma is neither pungent, nor long-lasting. In my estimation, Fabulous Face Oil is a delectable lovely oil!

  1. Hey Helen, I think I have tried a sample packet or two of this, but my favorite Aesop oil remains the parsley seed one! It's really more about the scent than how they work tho. Personally, I am not big on ylang ylang!

    1. Hey Sunny! I know how much you love the Parsley Seed Oil! Since you aren't a fan of Ylang Ylang, you probably don't want to use your samples on your face! :-)

  4. This sounds amazing my sweetest one! I am reporting back on the squalane oil by Indie Lee and no bad breakouts here. A few red spots here and there but I have those with every little new thing I try ever. i like it. it makes my skin radiant. Still in love with Tata Harper's line which has been, so far, the only treatment to effectively and noticeably cancel my redness. I am in skin care heaven, for now, let me hastily add since I do know my skin is a very reactive, emotionally unstable creature.
    how are your wonderful furries?
    Many hugs,

      The wonderful furry creatures are doing well! How are you doing? xoxoxoxox

  11. I've tried some of those oils on their own before, but never in that combination. I think I'm going to consider giving this one a try. I've yet to find a great moisturizing oil that works well for my skin.

    1. Hi Vonnie! This is definitely a very effective combination of oils, and Fabulous Face Oil is remarkably effective for combination skin! Let me know what you think of it, if you decide to try it! :Finding the right oil can take a while, but I have found a great many that I love. If you look at my "Luxury Oil" tab at the top of the blog, you can see the many oils that I have reviewed, and there may be others worth considering for your skin! :-)
