Introducing Aesop’s most nourishing eye serum

Revive your under-eye skin with this potent new serum from the luxury skincare brand.

The Aesop Exalted eye serum

For those desiring a hard-hitting product that delivers hydration, you’ve likely come across the Aesop Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant eye serum. Debuting in 2003, the serum was the first-ever eye care product from the luxury brand, promising nourishment for normal-to-oily skin. 

However, Aesop has a new hero serum to take notice of, the Exalted eye serum. Launching this week, it will replace the Parsley Seed serum — and this isn’t a bad thing. A versatile offering, the Exalted eye serum delivers deep-penetrating and sustained hydration, providing even more attention to skin in need of replenishment. And unlike its predecessor, it’s not just for normal-to-oily skin, extending its suitability to those with a sensitive visage.

As we know, the area around the skin is  exceptionally thin, fragile, and lacking in natural oil production, requiring nuanced and targeted care. And the Exalted eye serum doesn’t disappoint, its carefully selected ingredients making it a feast for the eyes.


Enriched with vitamins B3, B5, C, and E, they work together to hydrate, balance, and fortify the skin, as well as even the skin’s appearance. The serum is also the first Aesop formulation to incorporate the brown seaweed Pelvetia Canaliculata extract, a powerful ingredient that retains moisture for prolonged hydration.

Depending on your needs, you can use the Exalted eye serum day and night. Being more potent than an eye cream, use alongside the Aesop Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant eye cream for added nourishment, or by itself if you are looking to avoid the heavier weight of a cream. 

A few drops of the serum can be gently massaged into the skin after cleansing and toning, drying to an invisible matte finish. And if you’re looking for extra replenishment throughout the day, the serum is a soothing product to have on hand, whether your eyes are screen-weary or the air conditioning is drying.

Lastly, thanks to the comforting, woody aroma of the Exalted eye serum, the ritual of massaging it into your skin will soon become a favourite moment. Supple, soothed, and revived eyes await.
