It’s all too easy to go through your morning routine in a zombie-like state, ticking off the necessities – take a shower, brush teeth, get dressed, go – without properly taking the time to indulge in this time as an opportunity for some small self-care rituals. However, it’s a lot easier to enjoy your morning routine when your bathroom is well-stocked with Aesop products – think fragrant body washes, luxurious takes on daily essentials, and packaging that you’ll be proud to display (even the mouthwash is Instagrammable).
A Rose By Any Other Name Body Cleanser
First on the agenda – shower time. The heat and steam from your shower will amplify the fragrant botanical extracts in this formula, filling your bathroom with the scent of freshly bloomed roses – so you can set the scene for your morning routine with a relaxed start to the day. Think of it as aromatherapy with the added bonus of skin that retains the lingering scent of rose petals, cardamom, and black pepper, all day long.
Geranium Leaf Body Scrub
What better way to kick-off your day than with a total skin refresh? This pumice and bamboo stem-based scrub offers the ultimate exfoliation experience, buffing away dead skin cells, dry skin, and build-up, to leave skin perfectly cleansed, smoothed, and fragranced with the citrus-fresh aroma of geranium, bergamot, and mandarin.
Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Serum
A must-have in any morning routine, antioxidants provide skin with vital protection from cell damage inflicted by the external aggressors we encounter in everyday life, like pollution and UV exposure. This light gel formula works for all skin types, and contains antioxidants like green tea and grapeseed extract which work hard to firm, brighten, and soothe skin. Follow up with SPF, and you’re ready to face the day.
This may well be the chicest deodorant bottle we’ve ever seen, which is one excuse to purchase, but if you’ve been considering making the switch to a natural deodorant, now really is the time. This aluminum-free formula uses zinc ricinoleate to trap and absorb odor molecules without causing irritation, while a blend of sage, lavender, orange, and rosemary provide a subtle veil of fragrance.
Thanks to Aesop, even the most mundane and functional of morning rituals become indulgent experiences. Utilising the clarifying benefits of clove, anise, and spearmint, and with an alcohol-free formula, this rinse-and-go solution helps you to maintain oral hygiene and tastes divine. What’s more, when it’s finished, you can repurpose the bottle as a vase.
Protective Lip Balm SPF30
We all know how important it is to wear SPF every day, but did you know just how important it is to apply sun protection to your lips, too? That’s right, the skin of our lips is thinner and more delicate than the rest of the skin on our face, which makes it more easily prone to damage and one of the areas most susceptible to skin cancer. With SPF30 and a moisturising blend of jojoba and castor seed oils, this balm offers a double dose of protection and nourishment.
Ginger Flight Therapy
In addition to helping you ward off travel sickness, if you’re feeling particularly stressed out in the morning, this aromatherapeutic blend of ginger, lavender, and geranium helps to promote relaxation and a clear mind. Roll it onto pulse points and keep in your pocket or handbag for ‘round the clock top-ups.
