I am such a sucker for cleansing oils. I have a bazillion-million lying around from various brands and I always am tempted by another. Its a sickness I tell you. I hope I’m not alone in this one 😛
Anyway, one day, while I was at an Aesop counter browsing, I was offered a mini-facial to try some of their products. I’m not too familiar with Aesop, so I said yes. This was at the Aesop counter at 1 Utama and if they aren’t too busy, you can try asking to see if they’d do the same for you 🙂 So anyway, one of the items they used on me was the Aesop Parsley Seed Facial Cleansing Oil.
Cleansing Oil! Ding! Ding! I had to have it 😛 So the next time I saw Aesop having a promo (this was last year at Bangsar Village 2) I picked up a bottle. Its a RM185 bottle of cleansing oil and my wallet cried out in protest at this. Its likely to be the most expensive cleansing oil I’ve purchased to date!
So I took it home, skipping with joy (but carefully because its a heavy glass bottle) and got into the shower to use the cleansing oil as I always do – on dry face with dry hands, as a makeup remover.
Oh boy. Big mistake.
