We've always been a fan of the Australian skincare company Aesop. Firstly, because their products are made from good, healthy ingredients rather than nasty petroleum derivatives, and secondly, because they keep it real in their marketing messages, preferring not to subscribe to mainstream cosmetic practices and claims of anti-aging. The new starter pack for men quotes Albert Einstein on the box, "A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be." Hmmm, a thinking man's skincare. Now there's an idea.
