Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm
Hand balm is an appropriate name to call this product. It acts like a hand cream but more. To me the hydration that this product injects to my hands excels my previous hand cream from The Body Shop. Which is really something I need when the weather is cold and windy. It took me a while to be diligent to apply hand cream/balm on my hands but I am so glad I stick to it. Not just out of necessity but in terms of how my fingers are looking right now. They’re not as creepy as they were!
Two of my favorite things about this product are one, the amount of hydration it gives without being greasy (or without having to use so much product, because this shiz ain’t cheap). And two is the smell! It’s so fresh and zesty. Aromatique is definitely how I would describe this hand balm! A long long time ago, I used to use Weleda Skin Food and the smell of this hand balm is quite similar to that. You could probably get away with using Weleda Skin Food as a hand balm too but that thing is thick as hell! And also it’s very greasy in comparison to the Aesop one.
Now, 23 euros for a 75 ml hand balm is not cheap. But with the amount of product that you need per application, I think you can stretch the life of this product for more than 6 months. It’s a definite love from me and I think I will stick to this for a long time.
