The aesthetic, minimalist packaging of Aesop’s products would have undoubtedly caught your eye – be it at their stylish retail stores or in a restroom at an upscale restaurant.
The brand’s chic apothecary-style bottles and tubes house formulas that are infused with herbal extracts. Its fragranced formulas also make up a huge part of the brand’s allure. Aesop is no stranger to those who are passionate about skincare products, but if you’re new to the brand, we’d be more than delighted to introduce the label to you.
Read on to find out where you can get your hands on Aesop products in Malaysia and discover the bestsellers.
Aesop Malaysia: How the brand built its empire
Founded in 1987, Aesop began when Dennis Paphitis opened Emeis, a hair salon in Melbourne. The founder decided to blend essential oils into hair products and started sharing samples with his customers. Gradually, he took things to the next level and launched Aesop.
A few years ago, Dennis decided to sell off Aesop to Brazilian company Natura Cosmeticos while maintaining his role as an advisor. Formulated with quality plant-based and laboratory-made ingredients, Aesop rose in the ranks of popularity.
Rest assured, every product is tested rigorously, and none are tested on animals. They also don’t use any animal-derived ingredients, such as beeswax, honey or lanolin, so they’re both cruelty-free and vegan.
Fast forward to today, Aesop carries a myriad of products for the hair, skin, body, and face.

Aesop Malaysia: Bestselling products to try
Aesop Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Serum
New to Aesop and don’t know where to start? You’ll want to try the Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Serum first.
Suitable for all skin types, this serum does wonders for your skin thanks to the botanical blend of grape extract, parsley seed extract, and panthenol infused in the formula.
A few users with oily skin said that it doesn’t leave a sticky after-feel as it get absorbed easily. Compared to the Aesop Lightweight Facial Hydrating Serum, the Aesop Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Serum is more suitable for daytime use as it is more lightweight.
Aesop Parsley Seed Facial Cleanser
Another iconic Aesop product would be none other than the Parsley Seed Facial Cleanser. This gel cleanser is infused with jojoba oil and lactic acid – the former moisturises and balances while the latter gently exfoliates.
The hot, humid climate in Malaysia can often lead to the build-up of dead skin cells, which in turn clog our pores. This mild exfoliating cleanser can help unclog pores by sloughing away impurities without drying your skin out. It’s suitable for all skin types, but it’s best for those with combination skin.
Aesop Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Facial Toner
When you have sensitive or acne-prone skin, an alcohol-free toner like the Aesop Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Facial Toner works best. It is enriched with anti-inflammatory, calming, and skin-balancing ingredients such as green tea and parsley seed extract. Users commented on how refreshing and hydrating this toner is.
Bonus: You’ll fall in love with the floral, fragrant scent too.
Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm
Over time, your hands may get a little rough, especially since we’re upping the use of hand sanitisers. Watch your dry hands become as smooth as a baby’s bottom after applying the Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm.
It contains hydrating and moisturising ingredients, namely rosemary leaf, mandarin rind, and cedar atlas. Unlike most hand creams that leave a greasy residue after, the Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm doesn’t cause any greasiness. The only thing you’ll experience is the woody, herbal fragrance that’ll make you want to keep it by your side everywhere you go.
Aesop Geranium Leaf Body Scrub
Slough away your dead skin cells with the Aesop Geranium Leaf Body Scrub. It uses natural physical exfoliants, such as bamboo stem and pumice. It also bears a unique citrus scent that’s energising and aromatic.
Don’t forget to use this body scrub after shaving or waxing, as it helps to prevent any ingrown hairs from forming while leaving your skin smooth and soft.
Aesop Post-Poo Drops
Okay, hear us out. Contrary to popular belief, post-poo drops actually come in handy in unexpected situations. Perfect for shared or guest toilets, the Aesop Post-Poo Drops combine floral and zesty citrus notes from the blend of ylang ylang, mandarin, and tangerine extracts. Simply add a few drops into the toilet bowl after you’ve done a number two.
Aesop Post-Poo Drops (100ml) retails for RM105 at Lazada. These prices are accurate at the time of writing.
Aesop Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Eye Serum
If rich eye creams aren’t your thing, you might want to try the Aesop Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Eye Serum. This medium-weight serum gives off a floral, herbaceous scent from the blend of concentrated botanical ingredients,such as lavender extract, carrot juice, chamomile, and grapefruit seed.
Since it’s lighter in texture and silicone-free, it’s perfect for those with oily, combination, and even sensitive skin. Pair this eye serum along with the rest of your Parsley Seed range and watch your entire face glow.
Aesop Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Eye Serum (15ml) retails for RM275 at Lazada. These prices are accurate at the time of writing.
Aesop Fabulous Face Oil
You might shy away from using face oils if you have oily or combination skin, but rest assured, the Aesop Fabulous Face oil has a light texture that easily absorbs into your skin while leaving it silky smooth after.
The floral and herbaceous scent comes from three key ingredients: juniper berry, ylang ylang, and jasmine petal. While it does a great job at moisturising the skin, those with particularly sensitive skin will have to perform a patch test first – the essential oils could trigger a skin reaction.
Aesop Resurrection Hand Wash
This Aesop hand wash will make you want to wash your hands consistently, as you should, but this one will bring you to the sink time and time again. Infused with rosemary, orange, and lavender, its intoxicating scent will soothe your senses instantly.
It moisturises as it gently cleanses and softens your hands. Plus, you can nourish your hands even further by combining following up with the Aesop Ressurection Aromatique Hand Balm for soft, smooth hands.
Aesop Resurrection Hand Wash (500ml) retails for RM145 at Lazada. These prices are accurate at the time of writing.
