If you have been on the hunt for a fortifying yet hydrating product that’s also lightweight, Aesop’s latest skincare launch is made for you. Joining its Parsley Seed Skin Care range, the new Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Intense Serum is created for most skin types (including those with sensitive skin), and in particular for city folk who are more susceptible to the effects of oxidative stress.
The potent serum brims with a blend of fortifying ingredients, including antioxidant-rich grape seed, green tea and parsley seed extracts to support skin health and shield it from all manner of stress all city dwellers experience.
And while it delivers a generous dose of replenishing ingredients, the hydrating serum boasts a delightful lightweight texture, a sure favourite for those living in humid climates. Thanks to extracts of red algae and tara gum, the product forms a barely detectable film to help skin guard against airborne pollutants. Plus, it absorbs quickly leaving a matte finish and works as a stand-alone hydrator, making it a great choice for those seeking an alternative to cream or oil moisturisers and a top shelf must-have to share with your other half.
To be used twice daily on freshly cleansed and toned skin, a little goes a long way, so three to five drops is sufficient for each use. In the mornings, wait until touch-dry before completing your routine with sunscreen and in the evenings, blend or layer with complementary moisturisers for extra nourishment.
Presented in the brand’s signature minimalist brown glass bottle, the serum which comes with a reusable screw-cap pipette will make an aesthetic addition to any vanity. Priced at SGD110 for 60 ml, the new Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Intense Serum is now available at Aesop boutiques and via the brand’s online home.
