4 Aesop Parsley Seed Facial Cleansing Oil (200ml), $79
USING IT: It takes some effort to get the oil out of the bottle as the opening is tiny. The recommended half a teaspoon wasn’t enough for me so I doubled the amount. Instead of creating a milky emulsion on my hand as instructed, I applied the preservative-free oil on my face and massaged it in with damp hands. It took longer to dissolve waterproof makeup than the other oil cleansers, but I liked that the thin oil texture was easy to wash off. THE EFFECT: My eyeliner disappeared but some mascara remained on both eyes. After using it, my skin felt softer, smoother and soothed.
