I was today years old when I found out about the life-changing magic that is Aesop’s new moisturizer with SPF, Avail Facial Lotion with Sunscreen. Normally I’m not one to wear a $60 daily moisturizer, but I’m finding that it’s worth the money for the scent alone, which smells like it was crafted with the rarest and most beautiful on earth. If you’re a fan of Aesop products, you probably already know how uniquely amazing each Aesop product smells, and this one’s no exception. According to Aesop’s website, the moisturizer’s aroma is known as “Herbaceous,” but I like to think of it as taking a whiff of a fragrant bouquet of plants and flowers from some enchanted garden.
First things first: I wash my face each morning, then squeeze one—sometimes two—pumps of moisturizer into my hands and finally glide it over my face. It starts out as an off-white film, but it quickly rubs in translucently on my brown skin. I really just need one good pump to cover my face entirely, but I overdo it on purpose to allow the scent to linger in the palm of my hands a bit longer. If I could insert a crying emoji in this sentence I would, because that’s literally how I feel (in a good way) after applying this awesome product.
Beyond the aromatherapy experience, the moisturizer’s texture feels ridiculously silky and lightweight on my face—it’s basically like the milk of moisturizers with sunscreen. Which, is another awesome fact: It contains sunscreen! SPF 25 to be exact, and offers broad-spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays. Plus, it’s formulated with good-for-skin antioxidants like green tea and moisturizers like squalane and Panthenol, a form of vitamin B5.
It’s so good, I’ve been eyeing Aesop’s Avail Body Lotion with Sunscreen to try next—you know, for the full body experience and all that.
