When everything runs out at once
This always seems to happen to me. All my skincare products always seem to run out at the same time, no matter when I purchased them. This always results in a cringing realization that I have to shell out for a few all at once, when it's much easier on my mind and my wallet to space purchases out.
I've solved my running out of products problem with my desire to try out Aesop. I wanted to pick up a few things from their store in New York when I was there, but went back and forth on wanting to check a bag for an extra charge or just carrying it on. Damn those extra fees! In the end I didn't end up getting anything from Aesop, or a new perfume (it was going to be Byredo or Le Labo), nor did I pick up a tube of Embryolisse that I desperately needed. I still had "issues" getting my bag to shut so perhaps that was a good thing.
I ended up ordering Aesop's Camellia Nut Facial Hydrating Cream to replace my Embryolisse cream, the Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Serum to replace my Darphin Mat Serum, and their Fabulous Face Oil to replace my dwindling supply of Darphin's Chamomile Dry Oil.
I can't wait to give them a go. If you've tried Aesop, how do you find them? Do their products do what they say they do?
