Ummmm what should I say about this product. From packaging side, it looks fancy and luxury for me. Black bottle with pipette. However (this happened most of the times) when I want to close the bottle, the serum is dripped out from the side, which is waste the product :(
And the bottle is made from glass, need to extra careful. Product wise, its good because its organic and made from parsley (green, rich of vitamins and antioxidant). Absorb well on my skin and not make my skin oily. Even my husband started to use it now. But it didn't help with the hormonal pimples and the lady in the counter also told me but I still insist to give it a try.
Would I buy this product again in the future? Probably not! I use it now because Im pregnant and want organic products on my skin, that's all..

Over all my skin type is dry, but it will become combination in the summer. I only used this serum in the winter because it's too thick using in the summer.
although the anti-oxidant is the key concept for the product to appeal to consumers, as the key ingredient had low ranks, you'd better regards it only as a moisturizing serum.

I use the serum to boost my night time moisturizer (which is currently also Aesop - Primrose Facial Hydrating Cream) as it is still a cold month in Europe. I also use it in combination with my day cream (that has SPF). The results of these combination are always wonderful. My face would have a natural glow and smells really lovely! My husband also uses it as a post shave moisturizer and it really comforts his skin. The price is quite all right. I have used many more expensive stuff in the past that didn't deliver very well so this one actually saves me some. The con is the bottle: it is rather cumbersome to use.

I do love this, but the bottle is SO annoying.
Each time I go to put the dropper back in, product spills out over the sides, meaning you're guaranteed to use too much each time.
I emptied some into a little sample pot and have been using it out of that to avoid wastage, as it did cost 60 or so dollars.
But really does help when my skin is dehydrated. I have to use a moisturiser over the top most days but using this first means I only need a small amount of the moisturiser, which is great as I hate having heavy products on my face (especially during the day). Would buy again.

I was in the market for an antioxidant serum (was using Ole Henriksen's Truth Serum before but the smell was too much). I've read all the great reviews here about this one, the price was pretty good considering how much you've got! and it's organic.
I really wanted to like it. After cleansing and toning I put this serum on, it is quite sticky but absorbs okay. In 3 hours or so I got an oil film on my t-zone and my cheeks feel tight. After using half a bottle ( a month and a half coz I put it on my chest too), my skin condition is actually worse. i've got a few whiteheads and a big zit on my chin (i never get breakouts). So i'll continue using this on my chest and the search for the perfect antioxidant will continue (think i'll try Skinceuticals next)!

I switch between EL ANR Serum and this throughout the day. This stuff is dirt cheap compare to EL since I can get about 100ml at only half of the price of EL. I use this during daytime and I just refill them in a smaller bottle with a better dropper. I'm doing so because I heard that the big bottle tends to be oxidized quickly during our usage. And the dropper come with the bottle makes me so hard to get the precise amount I want and it gets pretty easy to flow out when I'm trying to put them back.
The moisturizing effect is not enough for my dry skin, unless I keep adding the amount of usage since it absorbs superb fast! I'll recommend this to be a handy serum where you can travel around. For nightime or anti-aging purpose, you can go for EL ANR Serum.

I have been using this product for a week and feel its really helping my skin's hydration levels and to stay bright and plump. I don't think its moisturising enough to use alone and I don't think moisturiser is enough on its own for my skin but when i use the 2 together, it really helps. I like how it makes my skin look so I would probably consider buying it again.

I don't get this product at least not yet.
I like the packaging and the pipette is very easy to use, the product does sink into my skin and hasn't caused any side effects, it certainly provides a fantastic base for foundation, better than any primer I have used but that is also the issue with it;
While the product sinks in quickly there is a film left which over a few hours feels like a gel based mask does as it slowly 'tightens' and dries on your face. It's odd and becomes uncomfortable. I will use the Serum more as it is designed for skin like mine, for now I am mixing with products to stop the mask like behaviour.
I will update once I have experimented further.

This stuff is amazing. I had a sample which sat in my bathroom cabinet for months and I wasn't even remotely interested in trying it, then for whatever reason I used it one evening after cleansing, it felt a little sticky, not as smooth as a regular serum but still felt nice on my skin. Anyway the next morning my skin looked amazing, it seems to be at once moisturizing, (probably not enough if you have dry skin, but great on my normal skin), and balancing, my skin looked really even and after a few uses it totally got rid of some small pigmentation marks I had on my face. I totally love it, will definitely repurchase. Also to note, my skin at times can be sensitive to fragrances etc but this serum seems to be very calming and I actually use it the most when my skin is playing up a little and it really works to bring it back to normal.

I've never used Aesop product before this one. I passed by the store almost everyday in Melbourne, but I never went in.. The store looks unique, like an alchemist store which is kinda cute :) And for my b'day, my friend bought me this as a gift. I've always had the feelings that Aesop product would cost a lot, so I checked the price online (in case I love it and need to buy more) and it is quite expensive, AUD63.. The serum came in a 100ml glass bottle with a pipette attached to its cap. The glass bottle is not practical, but I heard that glass is used to keep the serum long lasting.. I use it a couple months back, when my face were all red (because of the peeling) and had a lot of whiteheads. The serum is a bit sticky, but I guess we're not supposed to feel it with our finger, after all it's the results that matters.. It worked great! It left my skin felt supple and plumped in the morning..no residue left either which is always an extra point :) I think a lot of people would think this serum isn't moisturizing enough because it dries off and absorbed quickly, that's true, but then again, this is not a moisturizer, it's a serum..All i can say is that I love this product, it's congested-skin friendly and helps to maintain the skin balance..and it's smells refreshing too, like grape seed :), I would buy this again when I'm finished..
