Where to shop in Lausanne: Aēsop

February 24, 2015
Reminiscent of an old apothecary, the relatively new Aēsop counter in Globus has shelves of brown glass bottles that are guaranteed to provide satisfaction to even the most particular of customers.  Started by native Australian hair stylist Dennis Phaphitis in 1987, this brand has excelled even in the most economically challenging times because of its originality as well as its intentional quality and integrity. All Aēsop products are a perfect marriage of nature and science, putting efficacy at the forefront–ensuring that each customer’s need will be met regardless of who you are, where you come from, or where you’re going.

We were already big fans of Aēsop; you’ll find the Resurrection hand wash in our bathroom and Rejuvenate body balm and Ginger Flight Therapy in our purse, and we’ve had our eye on this adorable travel-size kit for our next adventure away. But we were excited to learn more about their other products, particularly their skin line.

We were so impressed by the employees at the Aēsop counter–their ability to ask the right questions, then explain so thoroughly the products; each ingredient, each function, each effect. The counter itself is interactive–you can try all of the products, smell them, feel them, really get your hands dirty clean. We settled on the Amazing Face cleaner, the B & Tea Toner (which honestly, we’ve never tried a more gentle toner!), and the Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Serum (which was so hydrating and so light at the same time). Besides the intoxicatingly gorgeous aromas all of these products boast, it is wonderful being able to use something on your skin that use plant-based ingredients and essential oils that have been proven effective over generations. We are firm believers in this brand and are aware that the price tag can be a bit daunting, but with this quality we’re going to go ahead and say, we’re worth it, and SO ARE YOU! 😉

We have some fun ideas and look forward to future collaborations with Aēsop, where we hope you can encounter their products and learn more about which ones best suit you.

You can find the friendly and oh-so-knowledgable Aēsop team in Globus, between the Bobbi Brown counter and the La Duree kiosk. They also have boutiques in Zurich, Basel, Geneva, and Bern.

A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of meeting some of the creative minds behind the skin, hair, and body line Aēsop, and learned a little bit more about them as a brand, as well as what they can offer us here in Lausanne. This is a line of products that we already love and use in our home, and though the skin products were a gift, all of these thoughts are our own.
