Most Helpful Positive
this cream is very nourishing and a little goes a long way. It is quite thick i found but such a lovely feeling on the skin. Not heavy but very moisturizing
Most Helpful Criticism
I was recommended this to take with me when I was travelling to a colder climate and it was moisturizing but not intensely, there wasn't anything special about it that made it suitable to the cold climate I was in. Had to mix it with an oil
Good barrier creamI received this as a sample it seems ok quite hydrating and good protection for the skin and nice fragrance
averageI was recommended this to take with me when I was travelling to a colder climate and it was moisturizing but not intensely, there wasn't anything special about it that made it suitable to the cold climate I was in. Had to mix it with an oil
Not every day cream / Cold harsh climatesI was given a sample of this with another purchase to try out and then later bought the full size, as I liked it. I don't use it as my every day cream, but for those weeks in winter that are especially harsh or when I'm traveling to colder climates it has been incredibly helpful to my skin.
It is a thick cream and does absorb quickly into the face, I like the smell (unlike other commenters).
amazingthis cream is very nourishing and a little goes a long way. It is quite thick i found but such a lovely feeling on the skin. Not heavy but very moisturizing
richthis is a very rich and thick cream but I wasn't a fan of how it felt on my skin, the product didn't sink in
Keep going backI keep going back to this facial cream! This is the second time I’ve purchased a tub and I think it’ll be my go-to forever! It’s perfect for any weather (not just cool climate, though I live in one!) and it doesn’t stay greasy on your skin - highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a versatile daily cream that moistures without clogging pores/leaving your skin greasy.
Very thickGreat for winter nights but find this very heavy and greasy feeling during the day. Definitely a winter only cream for me
Beautiful creamI got this as a sample and loved it. Loved the consistency, not oily, left my face very hydrated.
thick protective creamgreat for cold weather, this is a thick protective cream. Not sure if it's too thick for winter, but it's meant for colder climates and is very nourishing
Good for dry skinOk but I didn't think anything special about it.Probably suited to more dryer skin.I found the scent also too strong.
So nourishing for winter!After a day spent in a heated house this Cream really brings back the moisture to your skin. It’s thick and sinks in beautifully and makes my skin feel extra supple the next day. I received this as a sample and am so glad I did. A real skin saviour for dry skin!
great for cold climatesThis cream is meant to protect and shield your skin again cold climates and it does just that. Hydrating, rich and protecting, definitely recommend!
Hydrating with a dewy finishI bought the full size after receiving a sample and falling in love. I work in a constant year round temp of 16 degrees so I find my skin is always dull and dry from the air conditioning. This product helped give me hydration and a nice dewy finish. A little goes a long way too. I will definitely be rebuying.
Doesn’t clog pores while leaving skin softI love this cream! Not only does it smell divine, it doesn’t clog your pores while leaving your skin soft and hydrated - definitely recommend!
Feels too heavy on my faceI find this feels too heavy on my face. Not the right cream for me. Worth giving it a try though.
Good barrier creamThis cream is not for daily use but it's a great cream if you are going on the plane or Air-con indoor all day. I use it only go out for snowboarding or travel to protect my skin from very dry air.
Rich creamThis is a thick rich cream for very dry or sensitive skin.
It looks and feels like a normal cream but after I apply it it doesn't completely absorb and leaves a thin film on the skin. But not in a bad way, it feels like I've got a sleeping mask on.
My skin feels hydrated and comforted all night and I've got smooth soft skin the next morning.
This has a strong herbal, almost medicinal smell, but it dissipates quickly.
This is a great rich cream for the colder months or when my skin is needing some extra comfort.
Great for winter monthsThis is a great product that I use during the cold winter months. I find my skin becomes quite dehydrated and need something thicker and more hydrating. The bottle lasts a while as you don't have to use too much. The cream has a nice light herbal scent and the texture has the perfect thickness to it. I usually don't have dry skin so it tends to make my skin slightly oily when I use the left overs going into the warmer months. It's a great cream for people with dry skin or something looking for a thicker cream for the winter.
A lifesaver for dry skinIf you have extremely dry or dry skin then this is the cream for you. If not, you still might benefit from using it during the winter months. It's an absolute life saver for me as I found my skin just wasn't feeling hydrated enough even after using my full skin care regime. Before using this my skin would peel and get crack each winter but it hasn't happened since I started using this.
Moisturizing but nothing specialI was recommended this to take with me when I was travelling to a colder climate and it was moisturizing but not intensely, there wasn't anything special about it that made it suitable to the cold climate I was in. Had to mix it with an oil
Aesop Elemental Facial Barrier CreamI found this to be an average moisturiser. It didn't make me break out,which a lot of things do, so that was great. And it has a nice light consistency. But it just didn't seem to provide enough moisture and my skin always felt like it needed something else. It also didn't last for very long which was disappointing considering the price. I won't repurchase.
Nice rich creamFor winter or when my skin is feeling extra dry, I use this and it's indeed moisturizing and hydrating and keeps my skin soft and smooth, protected against the elements
Great in winterI have sensitive/combination skin and this was recommended to me as a winter moisturizer. It's rich but not so much that it causes my skin to breakout and it is great as a day or night cream when your skin needs some extra nourishment
Winter Dry Skin SaviourIf you suffer from extreme dryness or tend to become drier and tighter during the colder months then this cream is going to repair and maintain a moist feeling on your face. It doesnt get oily or look/feel heavy on the skin however apply this liberally after a good cleanse and tone of your face and you can kiss those tight skin days goodbye. I can not recommend this cream enough if you're face is in need of some rescuing.
Product did a great jobi had a terrible sun burn and a friend suggested me this. i have very sensitive and dry skin. this product did wonders. just using it after like 2-3 days i saw that it healed my skin and the dry patches and redness was gone. amazing product truly recommended
Great for dry skinPut on at night and it's great for dry skin. Smells like a day spa. Will re-purchase.
Great productHave just started using this as a night cream and it is lovely.
LUXURIOUS EXPERIENCEI use this cream together with few drops of Damascan Rose treatment blended in, and it's the best treat for my dry and sensitive skin. I love and buy these products all the time.
Awesome winter moisturiser!This is a beautiful product and like all other Aesop products it smells heavenly!
It has a wonderful thick consistency that spreads well and is not greasy.
True to it’s name it provides a barrier against the cold winter elements leaving your skin soft and hydrated.
I use it as a day cream only and use my regular nighttime cream in the evening.
Smells divineI'm 40 with dry skin and I use this all year round. Its super concentrated so you only need a tiny amount.
Skin SaverThis is one of my holy grail products and an absolute skin saver. It worked miracles last Winter when I was suffering from eczema on my face and will be repurchasing in the next few weeks.
Good outdoor moisturiserOutdoor, frosty mornings, hot windy days, this cream delivers. I also use it with other Aesop products for sun and added moisture.
A must have for winterThis product is a life-saver for skin in cold climates. My skin is reasonably dry, however in winter when I am exposed to a lot of heating indoors my skin has a tendency to become very irritated as well.
This cream helps to protect my skin from moisture loss, as it sits on the skin rather than soaking in (it is still fine to wear under makeup, and often I just use it an night anyway to give my skin a good hydration boost overnight).
You only need a very small amount, and my last bottle lasted me around 9 months. I would recommend this product for anyone who has dry skin and/or irritated skin and finds that their skin worsens when exposed to a lot of artificial heating/cooling or highly polluted environments.
great for VERY dry skin or extreme weatherthis is wonderful - but only if you have very dry skin, or live in a cold/windy/dry climate (including perhaps ferocious air conditioning) - as I do on all counts.
this has saved my skin thru a Hobart winter.
I use serums and my usual moisturisers underneath, then this on top (then sunblock of course during the day). just a small dollop - it is exceptionally thick, but once warmed it moves around easily.
it has stopped my skin feeling parched, especially in some offices where the air conditioning can suck the moisture out of your skin!
it smells wonderful, like cloves. I love it around my eyes, though if I get it IN my eyes it can sting.
really worth it if you have really dry/dehydrated skin or severe environmental conditions to live in.
