What? Gentle Facial Cleansing Milk by Aēsop.

Why? This rich, new formulation is fit for even the most sensitive skin types.

It’s been frothing up our coffees and decorating our cereal bowls since time immemorial... But, as a key ingredient in our skincare regimen? Hmmm. Perhaps that’s best left to Cleopatra!

Or is it?

Not according to Aēsop. Because, the 21st Century’s favourite apothecary is now arguing the benefits of introducing the white stuff into your daily beauty ritual – all thanks to its latest launch, the Gentle Facial Cleansing Milk.

Gentle Facial Cleansing Milk, Coming Soon to Aēsop.

Of course, this isn’t the kind of stuff you’d want to be splashing about your latte (although it will make you feel just as alive as your essential morning caffeine hit), however it’s this non-foaming emulsion’s creamy, water-soluble texture that will remove surface impurities and makeup from the skin, without resorting to harsh abrasion.

Combining oils of Lavender Stem and Sandalwood – both renowned for their gentle, soothing capabilities – with Grape Seed Oil to break down the tough components of makeup and daily pollutants, this rich elixir is optimally prepared to make your skin look and feel its very best. And, the final flourish? By introducing Panthenol (the ProVitamin B5) to its formula, Aēsop has targeted this treatment beautifully to sensitive skin types, reducing the risk of aggravation and offering balanced hydration throughout.

Cleopatra would be proud.
