One of my favourite cosmetic brands is the Australian Aesop. I like the whole concept of Aesop. The stores have a minimalist look, packaging is clear & simple, and of course, the products are heavenly. I'm just about running out the Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser and Geranium Leaf Body Balm. The scent is very unique and fresh.
The Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser & Body Balm both have also some mandarin and bergamot rinds in the blend.Geranium is known for its fresh, floral scent and rejuvenating properties in aromatherapy. Oil pressed from mandarin rinds is diminishing scars and stretch marks. Bergamot is well-known for it's beautiful uplifting yet calming properties.
Aesop was established in Melbourne in 1987. Their objective has always been to formulate skin, hair and body care products of the finest quality. They investigate widely to source plant-based and laboratory-made ingredients, and use only those with a proven record of safety and efficacy.
Have noticed that you can find Aesop products at Madison Perfumery in Budapest.

ps. You can find my visit to the Paris store some time ago here. Another gorgeous Aesop product is this.
