You all know I love the Aerin range of beauty products so I was super excited when I found out they were finally available in Australia and I didn't have to have them shipped all the way from America! I was thrilled to see the entire fragrance range was available, as perfume is one of the few things I can't get sent to Oz (pesky flammable goods!). Unfortunately, the Lauder company seem to be doing a soft launch, and have not brought the whole range to our shores, with only the lip conditioner (my all time favourite lip balm) and the hand cream supplementing the perfumes, but I hold high hopes they will bring the rest of the range here sooner rather than later!
As a treat, I decided to buy the Aerin Rose Hand and Body Cream, as it was one of the few Aerin products (other than perfume) that I hadn't actually tried yet. Despite the fact it is a full size tube (125ml), I love it so much it has become a handbag mainstay. Delicately scented with a sophisticated (rather than old fashioned) delicate rose fragrance, this cream sinks in quickly, leaving your hands hydrated, nourished and with a velvety rather than greasy finish. The peachy pink cream feels thick and luxurious; it is a mini treat every time I put it on. As you can see in the pic above, the packaging is gorgeous as well, and it would look perfect on my nightstand, but at this point, I just can't seem to get it to leave my handbag!!
At $65, this is a luxury, but a little really does go a long way, and it has become one of my everyday indulgences. And with Mother's Day coming up, it would make a beautiful present for a treasured mother.
Available at Estée Lauder counters at David Jones and Myer, Australia wide.
