Freebies, Science, Beauty and Post-Poo Drops

I’m a self confessed beauty product junkie, fully addicted, way past the point of any return.

One of my favourite things in life is freebies. I pull samples out of magazines, beg for them at beauty counters and just collect them everywhere I go.

Recently I went to one of my favourite shops in Nottingham, Rough Trade, its a one stop shop for all of your music wants and need with some brilliant books and trinkets chucked in for good measure.

I’d only popped in for a look but as usual came out with a book (actually two). But one of the nicest surprises was that in the bottom of my bag, with my two new books, was a small collections of samples from a brand I knew nothing about.


Since Googling the brand and trying one of goodies (Purifying Facial Cream Cleanser with lavender stem, white clay and chamomile bud made my skin feel amazing), now I’m just gutted that I haven’t found this brand before!

Aesop was established in Melbourne in 1987. The brand marries botanical ingredients with advanced technology, their products are developed to complement a balanced lifestyle, and help counteract the impact of the elements. Anti-oxidant ingredients are present in the majority of their skin care products AND they are a firm advocate in a moderate intake of red wine, what more could you ask for?


The sight is both beautiful and easy to navigate filled with lots of exiting content sure as this beautiful video;

Morph, is a collaboration with Australian Lucy McRae. Merging science and beauty to create this beautiful short film it is “an allusion to the philosophy and Aesop formulas”.

I have ended up buying the Body Cleansing Slab as I’m a sucker for Bergamot so I’m looking forward to its arrival.

The bottles themselves look amazing, I want to cover my bathroom in them, if the lads in my house don’t sort out their acts it might have to be the Post-Poo Drops from their second collaboration with A.P.C.
