Product: Reverence Aromatique Hand Balm
In today's review, we'll be talking about the Reverence Aromatique Hand Balm from Aesop.
Aesop was established in 1987, and headquartered in Melbourne, Australia. It offers skin, hair and body care formulations created with meticulous attention to detail, and with efficacy and sensory pleasure in mind. The brand's objective has always been to formulate skin, hair and body care products of the finest quality and they've done it. They always source for plant-based and laboratory-made ingredients, and use only those with a proven record of safety and efficacy. Aesop has several stores worldwide.
Packaging Outlook & Mobility:
Housed in a malleable aluminium tube, the hand balm's packaging is sleek and no-nonsense. You definitely won't look like you're carrying your girlfriend's hand cream in your briefcase or duffle. It comes in both a 75ml (perfect for travelling with) and 300ml version.
This is a hand balm, which makes it thicker than regular hand creams. Hand balms are great for intensive hydration.
Suitable for Skin Type:
All skin types, including sensitive skin
Subtle and nuanced, the hand balm features woody, earthy, and smoky notes. Key ingredients include Bergamot Rind, Vetiver Root, and Petitgrain. Calming and herbal.
It's a rich, skin-softening balm that provides intensive hydration.
The hand balm contains efficacious moisturising ingredients, such as Potassium Lactate, which soften the skin and provide all-day hydration.
Texture & Application:
If you've been staying away from hand creams because you don't like the feeling of oily hands, try Aesop's hand balms. Despite it being a thick, concentrated cream, the Reverence Aromatique Hand Balm gets absorbed quickly. It's practically weightless and grease-free when applied on skin.
How to Use It:
Squeeze about half a teaspoon's worth of product and apply to clean hands as often as desired, including areas that get dry easily, such as your cuticles.

It's a little expensive, but we do think the hand balm is worth the investment as it does leave you with smoother and softer hands. A little goes a long way with this product, so do use sparingly.
