Reverence Aromatique Hand Balm


Packaging Outlook & Mobility:

Housed in a malleable aluminium tube, the hand balm’s packaging is sleek and no-nonsense. You definitely won’t look like you’re carrying your girlfriend’s hand cream in your briefcase or duffle. It comes in both a 75ml (perfect for travelling with) and 300ml version.


This is a hand balm, which makes it thicker than regular hand creams. Hand balms are great for intensive hydration.

Suitable for Skin Type:

All skin types, including sensitive skin


Subtle and nuanced, the hand balm features woody, earthy, and smoky notes. Key ingredients include Bergamot Rind, Vetiver Root, and Petitgrain. Calming and herbal.

Key Features:

  • It’s a rich, skin-softening balm that provides intensive hydration.
  • The Aesop Reverence Aromatique Hand Balam contains efficacious moisturising ingredients, such as Potassium Lactate, which soften the skin and provide all-day hydration.

Texture & Application:

If you’ve been staying away from hand creams because you don’t like the feeling of oily hands, try Aesop’s hand balms. Despite it being a thick, concentrated cream, the Reverence Aromatique Hand Balm gets absorbed quickly. It’s practically weightless and grease-free when applied on skin.

How to Use It:

Squeeze about half a teaspoon’s worth of product and apply to clean hands as often as desired, including areas that get dry easily, such as your cuticles.

The Aesop Reverence Aromatique Hand Balam is a little expensive, but we do think the hand balm is worth the investment as it does leave you with smoother and softer hands. A little goes a long way with this product, so do use sparingly.
