I’ve always been curious about Aesop’s skincare, but it wasn’t until this Australian company opened numerous free-standing boutiques in New York in 2011 and 2012 that I acted on my curiosity and ended up trying a few products.
A helpful sales associate at one Aesop location asked me a few questions about my skin and gave me some tiny sample packets of Fabulous Face Oil to try. I’m so glad she did.
Did you hear that Fleet Week was cancelled in New York City this year? I have to say that I was disappointed to hear this. Not that I actually spend any time interacting with the visiting sailors, but I like to see them roaming around town for a few days.
