Additionally, Aesop is promoting a range of products belonging to Skin care+, whereby Aesop stores will showcase three related products, formulated with scientifically validated actives that deliver particularly generous doses of botanicals, vitamins and anti-oxidants. In the recently opened London Marylebone store, for example, consumers will be encouraged to try three products from the Hydrate+ range depending on their skin care concerns: B Triple C Facial Balancing Gel, for greaseless hydration; Perfect Facial Hydrating Cream, a rich cream containing vitamins C and E; and Damascan Rose Facial Treatment, a concentrated treatment oil containing 12 hydrating botanical extracts. All products have been selected because they complement the more extreme climatic conditions associated with winter months.
