For those of you who haven't yet had the pleasure, you must try out these amazing products by Australian brand: Aesop. Established in Melbourne in 1987, Aesop is well known for its facial, body and hair products that are rigorously eco friendly  and contain only carefully selected natural ingredients. Aesop's Milanese stores are in keeping with Aesop's simple yet retro image looking more like an alchemist's laboratory than beauty stores.

Aesop's Piazza del Carmine store is located in an old 'salumeria' whose sign is still above the door, while its most recent addition in Via Meravigli opposite "Pasticceria Marchesi" sports ceramic tiles and pale green cabinets. As with all of Aesop's stores there is a large ceramic sink which allows you to try out all of their products making it almost impossible to leave the shop empty handed. Personally I'm a fan of Aesop's Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm which you can even use on your feet - divine.
