Cleanser is probably the one can’t-do-without product for any beauty arsenal. As it happens, I am a bit of a cleanser obsessive and have tried, tested and (mostly) loved virtually every type of green cleanser available. In this series of posts I will discuss the advantages and drawbacks of different cleanser types and will highlight some of my favorites. For this, the second installment, I keep it simple with my favorite foaming cleansers.
As any design-obssessed beauty junkie can tell you, the Aussie skincare brand Aesop achieves the pinnacle of minimalist, unisex chic. It is also generally described as being “natural”, though in reality it falls some distance from the natural mark. I find this rather depressing, because aside from the cool factor, Aesop has some lovely products with gorgeous smells. Thankfully, Australia seems to inspire minimalist product design, because another antipodean brand, the achingly-cool Grown Alchemist, espouses a similar Minimalist Apothecary aesthetic to house its elegantly formulated, (mostly) natural products.
